Dcwitt; William busses at 13 heavy duty scale pits owned by the commission, at other scales when they are available and also check wheel loads on portable scales. Summons issued have averaged about 300 a month since the full force went into operation' last December. "The direct results of this operation in the way of increased revenue from violators actually caught •and of overloads which were removed • can be counted easily," Price commented, "but no one will ever know how many other vehicles were properly loaded or properly licensed because of the operation of a force of officers who are directly interested in the welfare of the highways themselves. There is reason to believe that this number is high." Price pointed out a proclamation of the governor April 28 liberalized the load limits for the duration of the war to enable trucks to carry heavier loads of defense materials. "Iowa's limits, as set out in the governor's proclamation," Price observed, "were found to be equal to or to exceed those being requested by federal authorities."

During the past few years this Company and the other companies of the Bell System have made tremendous additions to their plant, equipment and organization to handle the increased use of telephone service; yet over many long distance routes and in many exchanges there is a shortage of facilities. In normal times we would build more lines but now copper and other critical metals are needed for ships and shells and planes and other weapons of war. Yon Can Help Conserve Critical War Materials and Keep the Lines Open for War Calls Long distance lines to Washington, D. C., the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coast areas and other centers of military activity are very busy with war calls. If it is really necessary to, make a call over these lines, won't you please 'try to avoid the busiest hours which ait on vreek days between 9 and 12 in the forenoon, 2 and 5 in the afternoon and 7 and 9 in the evening? It also will help if you can make fewer local calls and keep each call as brief as possible. If yoa share a party line, please be considerate of the other fellow. In war-time, many more people have to use party-line service. Everything must be subordinated to winning war and the Bell System Is dedicated to that task. NORTHWESTERN KLL TELEPHONE COMPANY
