This means, in London for instance, (hat "black-out" starts at *'-3* P.m. Monday and that hundreds of thousands of clerks and factory hands will have to go home in absolute darkness. The perils of this condition were lest Illustrated by figures showing that fatalities were high in lirlt- ish traffic during "black-oul" in October, when the days were longer and workers got iiome before dark. Those casualties at home were greater than the combined British a'.id French losses on the battle fiont. And with lhe Christmas shopping season now al hand, the condition was expected to bo critical. The Evening Standard called it "a winter of hell with the lid on," and used a phrase of the poet Milton to describe it as "horrible on all sides round." In tlie face of lliis Geran air activity had increased all over western Europe in violation of neutral borders and the belief was spreading that a German air offensive against Britain could te expected before Chi-Minas. Tlie war office announced yesterday thai another 20,000 men were. wanted for home defenses. (In Berlin, newspapers reiterated that Germany was not going to "hibernate" for the winter and a Nazi spokesman said last night that "from now on we will work with all-means to strike the blow which will banish British influence from the European continent.") i . , A stalemate continued oh the French-German front. A Wench military authority said the Germans had such a mobilization, on the frontier that they could possibly slrikc a full offensive on 24 lo 4S hours notice without any advance .action. Newspaper correspondents--, touring. L- the , French FTftnncflhVe" reported that U had been tripled in strength since the war started and a German offensive there seemed less likely and more certainly doomed to failure. The fears ot an air raid were bad enough, hut the perils of longer "black-mils" were of immediate concern ! to every Briton. There was a chorus of protests against the stringency of the regulations. Tlie government was experimenting u'ith all kinds of til niligbting including Paris' blue lights and a new kind of gray light.

LAFAYETTE, Ala., 'NOV. 18 (UP) -Director David E. Llllentlial of the Tennessee Valley Authority , told a group of scuthcrn fuvmers I today that If their farms W ore to be electrified they must overcome vigorous private power company ] opposition nntl do the job themselves. He criticised sharply the policy of the Commonwenlth and southern Corporation, subsidiaries in the south, for having tailed to build rural pcwcr lines. He accused them of conducting "obstructive lawsuits spreading false reports and building spile lines." These charges were made in an address at a celDbrallon held by the Tallapoosa River Electric Membership Corporation, n rural clec- Irlfication project purchasing power from l!io City of Lafayette. Ullenlhal cited the Alabama Power Company In support of his contention that farmers could not depend up.-ii private utilities lo get service to them. "In 1932," he said, "the Alabama Power Company launched what It called a program of rural electrification. Ten years later the state of Alabama still had virtually no rural electrification with less than five per cent of the farms having electric service." He charged that farmers power co-operatives in the south had been "hampered by a common policy among southern companies of the Commonwealth and Soulliern The Time?
