And now all coastal cities arc having to kurn how ti> blackout, ami how to carry on normally in spite of! uncertain conditions. Verbal Scorching Given San Krnnctacuns LONDON learned how to live in constant blackouts, and soon was carrying on its usual activities in spite of abnormal conditions. Pacific- coast ports don't have to prepare for constant darkness—not just yet. anyhow. Calm acceptance of conditions will probably come here, too, as soon as everyone prepares tf>r emergencies. Because it's not fear that has gripped the average San Franci-scan, it's just dislike of inconvenience, and when he's learned to get around, or prepare for it, he'll hardly mind it at all. General DeWitt, commanding officer of the Pacific coast area, spoke sharply to fumbling San Francisco city officials after the all-too-brilliant first "blackout" attempt. After his blunt words, civilian defense was quickly organized more effectively, and the latest blackout was most successful. Most homes and places of .business are not yet prepared to (continue "business as usual" during the danger period. Since no cracks of light are permitted by the vigilant military patrols, it takes some time to find Hfid seal up all the chinks for efficient indoor operation in spite of raid alarms. First blackouts found most people ludicrously unprepared. Unannounced air raid warnings merely caused most sleepy citizens to put on their lights to see what all the excitement was about. Second reaction was to put out the lights, light a candle instead, and go back to bed. However, when the .seriousness of the situation was realized, everyone cooperated lo a gratifying extent. Candles and lanterns in open windows were thought to be all right t'h»»«Jj Sin Fratit.-1- m t.t rforvvc hu(f> Fivr K«n»-lr«"t cily xittteH? oil thpir tj'.ick.* «nil i *. t 'Fv>,f£s on Sunday to collect iwirtl fyi'tn the Iwach- : PS »nri fuul it '« rurivrnifmt oli-a- llcitis nrni;nd the city (or hou.whotd• [ ens to tart to their home*. i The PHiific Telephone and Trie- i graph Company <v.i» thp first urgim- : untinn In prcfwiie lur rral attiirki. : tiy harricudmg its strategic hca<U|>i<ir- '•• ters two stories high with samlbiigs. j Blue llru<lli*hl<, Proved j To Re Failures i An epidemic of blue headlights! struck the city, when some bright: citizens figured that these would: make autos u.s-ib'.o in blackouts. Alii this succeeded in doing was to re- j vive an old city ruling making such j headlights illegal for any night driv-j ing. The blackout rule, stopping all traffic during the dark period, continued to be enforced. During the long, complete blackout from 7:30 to 10:00 p. m. on Friday evening, Dec. 12. most people were still caught with their plans down, but nevertheless cooperated to an astonishing degree. Theaters, of course, were able to continue uninterruptedly. Most restaurants and cocktail lounges had to stop in their tracks, and there were a few complaints of customers who walked out with-out paying their bills, offset by a few customer words on the subject of being deprived of part of their meals, or served short drinks. In r.-sidence areas no panic was evidenced, but those who failed to hear the first sounds of air raid warning sirens were quickly awakened by neighbors ;<nd reminded to put out a neglected night light. All in all, it can be said that much has been learned in San Francisco's early air raid warnings and blackouts—and, also that much remains to be learned. Arrangements will have to be made for carrying on necessary business and pleasure "as usual," but San Francisco and other west coast cities, have proved already that they can take it without getting the jitters. Maybe they won't learn to take it und like it, but whiit is more to the point, they are learning to take it and accept it. Knyaiu «r-p Church ORIANAAMCNT BOYETT fet* US W Avr- B.

Democracies Have Staying Power Having seen war right at the active- fronts, Stimson is no easy, breezy optimist. He doesn't talk about any pus.h-overs. From what he saw in happier and more peaceful times in the Orient, he came to understand that tlie Jap soldiers and seumen were warriors whom it was simply silly to underestimate. America is now in the period of the first Jap onset and there has been some bad news. That is usually to be expected when a democracy clashes with an autocracy. But it is no time for faint hearts. It is a time for action—and preparation for more action. Though the first shots were adverse, it is the last shots that count and those will come from the democracies, he declares. Autocracies are thrown into wars by their rulers. Democracies go into war by the consent of their people. Therefore, in the long run its is the democracies that have the staying power and the endurance necessary to win long wars. ilt*h. t'nv<-? \Mlh H cui'i* owvfcrv! n<*»ilf * • mtx< v .t 'Ailh 1-1 cup f(fif<\ i.sumtw, 1-3- flip tniik. 3 tatttroikjtuit (nitlcr, incited Since fiur dcfcnw meal* nev»l thfir j full quota of milk (2 rupi per <Uy [«-r j ..'lull «nd 3 to \ iui.;> |*T il.iy i*-t i lid' csrnllopi-rl food* i-.re rspcrixlly | Mruhle.
