MAPLE STREET TEL. 3507 A shortage of gasoline for civilian use throughout Connecticut was predicted today by State Fuel Administrator Seth W. Darley for the month of August. Supplies available to motorists n Connecticut and other East -oast states have been declining juring July, almost unnoticed by the public. Mr. Darlcy said, and t further decrease in August is nevitaljly. Greatly increased demand for gasoline in the Nor mandy invasion is the reason fo: the situation, Mr. Darley said, and the shortage is likely to continue as long as the lighting in Europe lusts. Citing reports from . the ' Petroleum Administration'for War,' Mr Em-ley said that crude oil production and gasoline, output arc both greater novv than at any tirr.e in history, but demand has' outstripped tht supply. American oil .'lelcls are not nou- producing enough crude oil. from day to day, to meet military and civilian; needs, and reserve stocks are being drawn upon. • ' .

Here is a Japanese field telephone, picked up by a Coast Guardsman in the Makin Island invasion. It won't carry any more messages for Tojo! Telephones are weapons in this war — for swift communications are essential to winning'battles. Americans have.always had at home the most and the best telephone service in the world — and they are now sending the most and the best military telephone equipment to the fighting fronts. That's why there's .a scarcity of new facilities in Connecticut. "\ WON'T BE CALLING AGAIN, MOM" Thousands' of troops are sailing to join the mighty invasion armies. Every evening, from oil over America, servicemen ore colling their families by telephone, often for tho last time before going overseas. If the wires are overcrowded, some of these calls cannot get through. You can help to save a serviceman from bitter disappointment — by avoiding calls -.-to distant, out-of-stale points between 7 and 10 in - the evening. That's the only time when most of the men are free to call. Save 7 to 10 for the servicemen! »- v - SHE HELPED LAUNCH THE INVASION During those long months when the world was waiting for the news flash about the' invasion, .telcphori* wires were humming with the messages .which prepared the attack. Millions of calls from'the army, navy and war plants went into the big job of getting things ready. • The six thousand men and women of Trie Southern New England Telephone Company helped in that- job — by speeding the "voices of victory."
