SAVING OF COAL, OIL HELPS WIN, BAWDEN STATES WPB Representative Points to Importance of Conservation - "The saving of one ton of coal by one householder will not win the war. But. if 18 million do it, 18 million tons of coal will go a long way toward winning the war, said Lee Bawden of Clear Lake, field representative for the war production board, on the KGLO Forum Monday night. Mr. Bawden pointed out that recently the WPB requested.M. C. Lawson, executive officer of civilian defense in Mason City, to appoint a committee to sponsor and co-operate in the program of conservation of critical rescources. "This committee was organized alwot 3 weeks ago and from time to time, you as a consumer, will be requested by them in various ways lo co-operate in this important campaign^" Mr. Bawden said. Pointing out that many ways in which coal, the principal critical material at present, may be saved Mr. Bawden made these points: First, check the furnace--be sure it is operating to its best efficiency; second, cut ,_ heat output; third, eliminate any unnecessary Osase--Mitchell County Sheep ,-; f. hm ' na ^ JW unnecessary important savin and Wool Growers 'association's Ventll 5 t « m ' TMJ fourth, close off of this product. .-innnnl ]=iv,V, ,!;,,,,,,,- ,,,;!! i-- U - T J UnUSefl rooms.

S. Transportation Nearer Breakdown; Lacks Replacements The critical shortage of automobile mechanics at a time when the transportation system of the country is 11'e a r e r a breakdown than ever has caused the local ODT committee to launch another class of instruction in automotive mechanics in Mason City. The first class has completed its course and its graduates are a vivid demonstration o£ the efficacy o£ the instruction given. Each graduate got a job with an automotive repair establishment or is doing improved work in the shop where he was already employed. Classes will get under way next Monday evening at 7:30 o'clock at the Ben Nelson garage. 613 S. Federal avenue. Classes will be held each' e v e n i n g Monday through Friday from 7:30 to 10:30 o'clock and lasts 10 weeks. | The school is sponsored by the Civilian maintenance advisory committee of the ODT and the Mason City school system. Funds for its maintenance are being made available through federal appropriations. There will be no entrance fee and no charge for tuition. Instructors have been selected from local garages and service stations. The need for automotive mechanics has heen critical for months'and. if anything, is more critical now than ever, according to Clayton Hart, committee chairman. Mr. Hart pointed out that surveys have shown our whole transportation system is nearer a breakdown than ever. With no replacements in equipment available there is need for more mechanics that ever before. Applications for entry mar be filed with C. \V.

Eslick, Mason City, district manager of the division of motor transport, office of defense transportation, warned Tuesday that they must notify the' district ODT of their change ot address if they wish to obtain gasoline allotments. Mr. Eslick explained that farm leases in this area generally expire on the last day of February and as a consequence there is a rather heavy movement of farmers from farm to farm in the first 2 weeks of March. Rationing boards, as a rule, stamp envelopes containing gasoline coupons "not to be forwarded." For that reason, Mr. Eslick said, farmers should immediately notify the district ODT office o£ their new address so that their records can be straightened out, thus preventing delays in obtaining new gasoline allotments. Qualified men up to 38 years ot age are now being accepted for general sea duty, according to Lt. Cornel. W. J. Amoss, in charge ot naval officer procurement for Iowa, at the Old Federal building DCS Moines. T Top age for general sea duty has been 35, it was explained. For exceptionally well qualified men this age has been now extended to 38. Men selected may expect to go into the amphibious command. Shipbuilders and manufacturers are now engaged in building 60,000 invasion landing craft and demands for personnel to command units of them are large. To qualify for this duty, men must be U. S. citizens in excellent physical condition who are graduates of accredited colleges or who have completed a minimum of 2 years of college with superior scholastic records. In addition, candidates must show records o£ progressively successful business experience since graduation.

Eslick, district manager o£ :he motor transport, Office of Defense Transportation, said Tuesday. Farm products arc moved to markets or rail junctions, and farm supplies from urban to rural areas, by about 1,600,000 trucks, the bulk ot which were farmer-owned. The rest were "for hire" trucks engaged wholly or primarily in hauling farm products. The increasing age of farm Irucks and shortage of replacement parts and manpower for repair and upkeep contributed to (he decline in available motor trucks for handling the crop last year, the ODT said. Another factor, it said, was the drifting away from farm transport by the "for hire" group of carriers (o more remunerative fields. The fact that trucks were able to transport the 13-18 farm crop, which was far in excess of normal peacetime production, was due largely to the co-operation of farmers and truck operators with the ODT's conservation program ODT officials said. This was accomplished, they explained through county farm and industry transportation committees, assisted by federal and state agencies and national and local farm organizations with 86,000 representatives in 3,022 counties throughout the country. The direct result has Iieeu, not curtailment of necessary transportation, but rather the elimination of wasteful and unnecessary operation, the ODT emphasized. Industry transportation . p l a n s were credited with playing an important part in curtailing mileage in (he distribution of farm products, with resultant savings ot gasoline, replacement parts, tires and manpower, and the preservation of the vehicles themselves. As of Feb. 1, 1344, the ODT had approved 508 committees under the dairy industry transportation program. These committees have submitted plans covering 148 milksheds, with yearly savings of 37,274,551 truck miles, 205,010,131 tire miles, 3,727,456 gallons of gasoline, and 2,484,970 man-hours.
