The e m e r g e n cy 60-day price ceiling covers the area where a 20 per cent curtailment in deliveries to service stations was compelled by the sinking of tankers and the diversion of shipping to war uses. This curtailment takes effect at midnight tonight. Effective On Monday • The price order is effective next Monday, March 23. Violations may be punished upon conviction by a maximum fine of $5,000 or imprisonment for one year, or both, acting Price Administrator John E. Hamm warned. Hamm said his office was given 'serious consideration" to the- licensing of all filling station operators jn the so-called "curtailment area" as an additional measure to guarantee compliance with the price ceiling. Under such a plan any gasoline retailer who violated the order would be subject t court action to have the Hcens suspended.

Temporary price regulations normally are applied to cope with swiftly d e v c 1 oping inflationary movements, where it is impossible to prepare a permanent price regulation in time to halt the price movement. In most cases they are followed, at the expiration of 60 days, by permanent price' orders which may set lower levels. Molorisis Warned S i m ultaneously the petroleum industry issued a warning to the 10,000,000 motorists in the restricted area that thev must cooperate whole-heartedly 5n the curtailment program, if. a rigid card system of rationing is to be avoided. Under the quota system effective at midnight each filling station operator will receive 20 per cent less gasoline, and so will be under the necessity of curtailing his sales by that amount.

What if this were no 'accident'! Had Tom, failing of every other effort brought her out here to get her out of his way? That was ridiculous of course. She must have been seeing too many movie thrillers. Still, Mr. Goodwin had warned her she would necessarily risk some danger. And if it had been a plan it was a good one. Not a soul within five miles. The ocean lapping at 100,000 stations in the affected areas have been directed to spread their supplies as far .as possible and to space them evenly over the month. The WPB order requires the retailers to confine their operations to 12 hours daily, six days a week. Each operator is to determine what hours and what days his station will be open.
