MONDAY, JANUARY 15, 19-16 BIA'TIIEVIL.LE COURIER NEWS People Of Britain Don't Quibble- Their Pleasure Driving Ended Long Ago Wild Post-War Era Predicted Relaxing Of Moral Standards Certain, Dr. Overholser Says WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 (UP) — After Hie war a period (hat will make the "Roaring Twenties" seem like a whisper Is predicted by Dr. 'Vlnfrcd Overholser. He is Ihe superintendent of St. Elizabeth's Federal Mental Hospital at Washington. Dr. Overholser told United Press Correspondent Helen Ashby I the uninhibited "flapper girl" of (he j early twenties will seem staid coin- I pared to the girls of the coming ] post-war era. Dr. Overholser reminds that the ["flapper girl" shocked her parents. I bobbed her hair, painted her face land wore her skirt above her knees. 1 Cigarettes and whiskey became as I much a part of her daily routine las brushing her teeth. 1 However, Overholser says the J general relaxing of standards, I which will just as surely come after I this war, or continue, for there ac- I tually has never been any reversion I toward (.ho Victorian standards, will not endanger the institution | of marriage. The doctor says moral laxity d - d to t ,„, . in even now Is reaching a peak, and | [that a groat many war marriages' I will crack up after the war. How- 1 ever, eventually Overholser says I the pendulum will probably swing I back, and our world will become j what was once known as normal I again.

By TOM WOI/F , NKA Staff Corresiwndenl LONDON.—Britain's answer to gasoline and tire shortages has been to attack the problem at the heart. Pleasure driving lias been eliminated entirely since June 1942. Such driv-rclatcd luxuries as horse racing have been to- drastically curtailed as to be non-existent for all practical purposes. Today there is no basic gasoline ration in Britain. As a result, there are an estimated 250,000 civilian private cars now on the Church Members Must Cannot Work Without Pay Or Membership In Union, WLB Says SAN FRANCISCO, Jan, 15 (UP) I — Arthur Bell, former director of I mankind united and convicted seditionist, claims to live in a world | of wonders denied most mortals. But today Mr. Bell and his won- I dcr world came up against UK I harsh realities of the War Labor Board, and took a beating. Mr. Bell, sometimes known as "The Voice," owns an enterprise known as "Christ's Church of the Golden Rule." An (1 tile church of the Crfilden Rule owns and operates | n dairy near San Jose, Calif. That's where the WLB comes in. The 1 board told members of Bell's church Gasoline is available to four main classes of users: business essential to the war effort; essential to the life of tho community (doctors, etc.); fanners domestic situations where, because of lack of oilier means o transportation, complete curtail ment of gasoline would cause rea hardship. In some rural districts for example, gas Is available fo driving to and from tlie statioi or for a couple of weekly shop ping trips If, no public traiisporta tion is available. USED AMERICAN SYSTEM The early history of Britain rationing system rends much Ilk. our own. Within three weeks (he war's start the English inlro duccd a scheme, Including tot basic and supplemental gas cou pons: The basic ration was fii ircd to give an average of 1 niles monthly. Unlike our ha? atlon, however, Britain's rati< vas scaled to the horsepower of he vehicle. Thus an automobile if less than seven horsepower got our gallons per month, while a 20 horsepower limousine got 10 allons. On top of this basic ration, which was automatically available to anyone who owned a car. is slashed from 10 to three and' half. To get his gasoline an indivld- il must apply to Ihe regional pc- olcum officer. There nre 12 such en for the cnlire Untied Khig- oni—which gives an Idea of how 'inparallvcly few cases are In- olved. The application must cx- nln not only why gasoline is ceded, together with details of ie number ol miles driven on mllnr work in the previous po- od, but also must specify the oulcs to be driven. Tile last Is of nmeasurable help to cnforce- icnt .officers. Even if your claim gasoline is approved, you will avc to rcapply—with all the de- alls repeated again—al least once very quarter. To discourage the isc of gas-wasteful cars, no out s given more gas than would be necessary to drive the remilm lumber of miles at Ihe consump- Ion rale of 20 miles to Ihe gallon Gas savings have been effcetet n other ways, such as drastic re ducllon of deliveries and pooliui of commercial routes. Consumer were, until recently, restricted ii cases of dries, to services, the one such as laun located nearer Mrs. Unvls, as, ( nl thu hospital ne .supplies some of (he more ringenl commercial restrictions avc been lined within the past lonlli.

REDUCE RATIONS As war and gasoline shortages progressed the basic ration was progressively reduced, with the largest reductions in the higher horsepower, levels to penalize users of gas-extravagant vehicles In April, 1942, for example, the lowest horsepower car's ration was they would have to join Ilie Teamster's Union if they wanted to work in the dairy.

That reason is the vast and vital quantity of telephone equipment needed in the war overseas. Some telephone equipment is scheduled to be made for civilian use this year. But sudden military de- mands can change such schedules, and telephone equipment scheduled lo be made is still a long way from telephone equipment ready for use. That's why we can't be sure just when anyone now waiting will get telephone service. Thanks for your continued patience and understanding. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO.
