Far from being a loose association of devoted but unorganized patriots, the French underground constitutes n well-knit righting Force which Americans and British liave helped to create. We have flown them arms, explosives nncl other supplies. We have told them that certain of our liberating forces will be especially ' prepared lo contact and work with them. Individuals in the underground can furnish Invaluable Information to our invading troops. A gallant group with submachine guns made In America can block a road ngalnst German troop movements. A single man can shoot up a car bearing a German staff officer with Important orders. N'A'/.I KNIT THEIIt BROWS "Where will Eisenhower make his main effort?" Until the Germans know the answer lo that troublesome f|iicstlon, they cannot lodge ull-force • counter-attacks agnlnst my one landing In Europe. They, can move only their local eserves.

The Germans must reason that the bluffing was far from ended by the landing in Normandy.

They are made by. / customers of the market.. .by people who want more than their share of the nation's desperately needed gasoline. Maybe you —a good, patriotic and conscientious American citi- / zen—are a part of the black market and don't realize it. } If you have ever bought.or accepted more coupons or gasoline than your ration board allowed you, you are, wittingly or unwittingly, a part of the black market. / It's true that .America is producing and refining more crude oil than ever before. The oil industry has expanded its operations and facilities tremendously. But the war machines we've been building since Pearl Harbor—thousands of planes and tanks and trucks and ships— are itji at the jroni mill on the attack throughout the world. These machines must not run out of gas. Essential civilian needs ori ' the home front must be supplied. There simply isn't enough gasoline to do both jobs without limit Certainly there's not enough to support a black market that is siphoning off more than 2,500,000 gallons a day from our available supply. You? pefrio&ism is on frial The gasoline situation is serious. Every drop you use is precious. Less than three-fourths as much gasoline can he spared for the home front as in 19-f2. Rationing must cover essential needs first—farms, trucks,, buses, industry, your doctor's car—and these are imperative; they cannot be reduced. We Americans cannot tolerate' the black market—certainly we, as individuals, cannot have a part in it. Here's How You Can Do Your Patriotic Duty and Stay Out of the Black Market Don't apply for more gas than you really need... .
