THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1939' food That Went In Less Critical Weeks Is Sought BY MILTON BRONNER NKA Service Staff Correspondent CONDON, Sept. 7.-\Veeks ago, t™n the Danzig question was in a less crucial stage, many thrifty Londoners began to lay i tl s torea of ndti-perlsliable canned foods after being Informed by the government agencies and newspapers thnt this personal precaution wuld not be unpatriotic. These rations, spec tally prepaid in lockup boxes and consisting of «inned hod, meats, milk, su-ar rice and cheese varied in price from' ten to forty dollars-yet they vent lagging. But will/'Prime Minister Chatn- berlam making his grave speech 10 Parliament and warnln* (hat, England would light if inland Is invaded by Germany, people In London and Ihrouglioiil En»latui have begun besieging tlte "ro-cry stores by telephone and in "person trying to obtain large orders. Many firms replied that they would nil the orders utilll their stocks became depleted. But the probability Is that as soon as wails declared the many staples which they carry will not be sold without a government, ratirn cart). These ration cards, n million of which are ready for distribution in the event of war, limits the amount of food sold to a person each week. CRISIS CAUSES HUN ON BLACK CLOTH As the government broadcast a warning that, people must prepare to have all lights in their houses and shops concealed at night tliere was a wild rush this morning u get any kind of black cloth which could be cut into curtains. I went to one of the biggest drygords shops in London today but the clerk said as a result of IHe rush he had only one bolt of 00 yards left. I was (old I could take it or leave It because the shop would not sell it in pieces 1 took It. Every painter In London is working overtime now with jobs boskeci for n week ahead to paint windows black. PREPARED TO LIVE BY CANDLELIGHT In tlie belief that electricity may be cut off to conserve power or that foreign bombers might dqstrcy London power plants, n™ple' J 'tliis mowing were lined up in queues in front of five-and-ten-cent st:res to buy candles and flashlights. The stocks were soon exhausted. Practically every town in England Is engaged In these last minute preparations, but Ihere is no panic or mass hysteria. Tliere is just a solemn anxiety as the people prepare for the grave eventualities of the coining dnys and -v.atch their young men torn from civilian life and thrust into military .service.

For socialite Anne Allen Is the nation's only "flying" woman nrc chief. Miss Allen began chasing fires a dczen years ago. It all began when Incendiaries set fires on the 2,500- ncre Allen estate, 12 miles Irom Providence. When these blazes increased in -size and number, Miss Allen organized the "Cedar Hill Fire Department." The community elected her department chief, nnd'ls men were plit on Hie active list. The.creation of the new department, headed,' by a woman, roused sr muoK interest that an honorary .division was formed.
