In 1943, only 25 permits for day coach space were issued by ODT for summer camp (ravel, This Office of Community War Service last year rejected well over 000 formal applications for bus service, as unqualified for special permit. Because of expeclcd high-enrollment of war workers' children in day care summer camps, ODT will permit daily bus service for children under 12 years of age to and frpm camps of this type under rigid limitation. Criteria which must he met include: '•I. At least two-thirds ot the children's parents must be enabled tljrough the child's attendance at the day care center, to continue tlieir essential war jobs. 2. Other supervised recreational programs for the age' group' mu-it be inadequate or totally lacking in the community. 3. The day care program must be .recognized by n responsible welfare agency. /4.

All travel arrangements should be made well in advance with camp author- Hies, camp officials must arrange any special travel schedules with railroads well ahead of time to avoid conflict with essential traffic movement.
