Self- -Confidence Essential "An officer must develop the qualities of self confidence and seli respect." says the notes. -confidence bred chiefly on knowledge- -a knowledge more complete and more extensive than that of any subordinate, a knowledge attained by sweat and hard work "He who is placed on pedestal is most visible- -not only 15 he looked up to but his every act is noted." Mess etiquette officers are also reminded that wagers should not be laid before the wine has been around once. Traveler BRANTFORD, Ont.

When darkness starts to descend on the capital thousands of people endeavor to get to their homes or shelters before the sirens commence their nightly wail. Most of these people "queue" for London's buses but buses that today are very different. Instead of the old brilliantly lit bus roaring up alongside the sidewalk, a dark shape now draws up at a slow speed with its destination board so dimly lit that it is hardly discernible. Windows Boarded Over A number of its windows will most possibly be permanently boarded over, usually indicating that they have either been broken by antiaircraft shell splinters ot even from the concussion of bursting bomb. So many windows have been broken in the first year of war that glass is now at A premium and boards are used as a substitute.

A strong gauze netting also now to be found affixed to the glass windows that remain. This is designed prevent the window from shattering and injuring passengers with glass splinters, Under black -out conditions it is difficult for people to know when they have reached their destina-1 tion. This has been overcome by the bus-conductor yelling out the name of each place reached. When the sirens sound many passengers leave the upper compartment of the bus and go to the lower. This has been found to be a wise precaution.

The collision occurred at the intersection of the Corpus Christi Highway and the Petronila Highway, just east of the city limits. An X-ray was made to determine extent of Mrs. Schacherl's injuries, but a report on the examination had not been made late Wednesday night. Highway Patrolman W.

V. Weeks, who investigated the crash, said Miss Annette Barnard, Robstown High School student, was driving north on the road and that the other machine, occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Brandt, also of Robstown, Route 1. and Mrs.

Schacherl, was heading east on the Corpus Christi road when the crash occurred. The Brandts were given first aid treatment at the hospital. Other occupants of the machine driven by Miss Barnard were George Brittain and Edgbert Lane, also of the Robstown High School. Both cars were badly damaged. Heat waves occur in the month of August more than in any other UP month.

Furthermore, France depended on ports for a large percentage of its meat, particularly mutton, and for much of butter. eges and poultry. as well as the fodder of livestock.

Most of these overseas supplies were now cut off. From 55 to 60 per cent of the fats used in the country Canie from abload, about half from the Colonics and the rest from foreign countries, Dr. Reinhardt expressed the belief that despite the blockthe ade. considerable portion large stocks of vegetable oil: in West Africa would reach France the next few tendduring 10 relieve the bad shortage. Ir the meantime, butter about the only fat available for cooking 01 other purposes, Dr' Reinhardt asserted France In recent vears had done nothing to increase its butter production, whereas the German production had been doubled in the same time.

under much more unfavorable conditions for the dairying industry. Situation in Butter Proper distribution of the butter supplies of the country WAS fact further handicapped by the that about 55 per cent of France's butter made by the peasants this and control of distribution of butter was difficult. In Germany, 85 per cent of the butter is produced in co-operative creameries and the German althorities were offering their experience in this line to the French with a view to increasing the percentage of creamery produced butter, It was indicated that a new law will tend to bring this about, but its effects will not be felt immediately, Without severe rationing. and the importation of large supplies from Germany, the shortage of fats. sugar and potatoes would have been catastrophic.

Dr. Reinhardt concluded. He hoped that there might be some amelioration in the situation before the winter WAS over and that a long-range program would tend to increase French production next year and thereafter. The German army had helped in large part to save last year's harvest by working in the fields and would continue to help in the sowing for next year he pointed out.
