THURSDAY, APRIL 30, 1942 BLYTHEV1LLE, '(AUK,)' COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVBw Women Start Hitting Stride Needed To Help Win The War BY HUTU MJLLUTT \ Be prepared to carry your own luggage as thtre is a shortage of red caps. Don't expect to be hauled around in private cars. (Leave your evening clothes at home. Those were the marching orders for members of the Junior League, most society-minded woman's club, who planned to attend the organization's recent national convention in. Kansas City. Those orders make you think club women are getting down to business, that they intend to pitch in and work, instead of spending their time .talking about, "What we women can do" while they drink tea and eat daintily decorated little cakes. If club women can manage to cut out all the frills and pointless chatter they usually go in for, they'll really accomplish things. And, it looks as though they mean to do past that. It may take a while for Mrs. Jones to break herself of the habit of making a speech whenever she can grab»the floor. And, for plump Mrs. Smith to resign herself to meeting without eating. And, for women who haven't walked live blocks at a stretch in years to carry out club projects without taking tbeir cars out of the garage—but they're getting the idea. WORLD WAR I WAS BAD EN'OUGII So, don't expect to see any such scenes seeing as one woman during the last reported war. It seems that right at a time when the need was for more and more man power, she passed a woman's clubhouse where the ladies were meeting to •'discuss what they could do to win the war. In front of the clubhouse, lounging around waiting patiently for the meeting to break up, were—17 able-bodied Chauffeurs. Are YOU the thoughtful type? < If you're the thoughtful type, who considers carefully before buying, • your own good sense will single out Cream of Kentucky.

D. HUGHES GIN CO. Phone 3141 BlytheriHe DETROIT, (UP)—All intelligent tire conservation program is as necessary for operators of the nation's 5,000,000 trucks as it is for the men and women who drive America's 28,500,000 passenger cars. Only careful use of the current limited supply of rubber for tires can assure continued operations of trucks, many of which are shouldering an important part of the wartime transportation load. Before the war truck tire failures meant lost time and money. These failures today, according, tq W. C. Manvillc, head of U. S. rubber company's tire engineering department, frequently Uelny production schedules, waste man hours and deplete the nation's already inadequate rubber stockpile. Comprehensive Rules One automobile company official has estimated that the amount of mileage a motorist can obtain from a set of tires can be "nearly doubled" by following a few simple rules such as driving carefully, watching wheel alignment, rotating tires every 5,000 miles and keeping them inflated properly. Truck operators also can extend the life of their tires by following a more comprehensive set of rules, according to Manvillel They include: 1.—Always use the right size tire for the job. This is essential for rubber and fuel conservation. Tires designed for mud and snow do not belong on hard-surfaced roads. 2.—Overloading is the chief destroyer of tires. It nob only scrubs away the tread rubber but weakens the body or carcass or the tire. 3.—Increased vehicle speed means increased rate of tire wear. At 60 miles per hour the rate of wear is 50 per cent greater than at 40. Cuts, Bruises Need Care 4.—Under-inflation or over-inflation means fast wear and premature total breakdown When dual tires are used the outside tire should carry 5 pounds additional air pressure. 5.—Replace faulty rim and wheel equipment. 6.—Mount truck tires carefully. A wrong size flap will cause tire failure. 7—Front wheels out of alignment scrub off rubber. 8._^Unless repaired immediately, cuts and bruises eventually "Will cause tire failure. 9.—If a tire is eligible for recapping, remove it Jrom service when the tread design is worn away in the center. 10.—'Use new tires first on the front wheels, then switch them to the driving wheelSr-^r—,-r. ;• HORIZONTAL 1,7 Pictured former.

Hailed as the "miracle" drug sulfanilamide and its related compounds are indeed achieving amazing results on many cases for which they have been found to be specific says the report. Yet "sulfa" has powerful reactions, and even skilled physicians fjnd extreme care necssary 4n its use. The average layman has no more business buying these drugs and taking them without close medical supervision than he would have in buying insulin or morphine, or in performing home suvgrey on his family, the warning states. "Sulfa" therapy has already worked a revolution in treatment of pneumonia, meningitis, and various other violent infections, particularly streptococcus infections, with phenomenal results in many cases, the report states. However, physicians are constantly exchanging data on the reactions of these powerful drugs, and agree on the need for great care in selection of the proper "sul£a" compound for a given condition, and for utmost and continuing supervision during the administration of the drug. The layman who buys a bottle of "sulfa" pills at his neighboring drugstore and blithely goes home to take them for whatever ails him, is playing with dynamite, the bulletin warns. One of the commonest errors is to take "sulfa" drugs for the ordinary cold or "flu", for which these drugs have little or no curative value, according to current medical opinion. 'Although it is one of the most successful drugs- ever discovered for certain bacterial infections, "sulfa" in its various forms also slows down or temporarily halts the formation of both red and white blood cells, and its unsupervised use invites anemia, to mention only one of the possible dangers.
