D. C. Dairies Find
Customers Patriotic On Skip Deliveries Report Few Complaints; Gas Bills Checked To Gauge Savings Washington * milk consumer* are taking the new system of one de livery every two days with a mini-1 mum of complaint, dairy officials re- i ported yesterday. A survey by The 8tar as dairies faced their third week of restricted milk delivery mileage revealed that all dairies have received a “surpris ingly small" numbr of “kicks” from customers. "Of course," said Herman A. Schulteis. vice president of Chest nut 7 ■arms Chevy Chase Dairy, ‘ when you try to change the habits of the American people overnight you have a problem on your hands. "Most people, however,” he said, ".seem reconciled to the inconven ience." Reaction “Patriotic." Another dairy official commented that the reaction of customers had been "downright patriotic.” Drivers of milk trucks also were praised by their, managers for their eo-opera tlon in handling drastically revised delivery routes. A daily delivery is still legal under ODT orders, but dairies here vol untarily shifted to one every two days to comply with a second ODT order to cut down delivery mileage 25 per cent. Greatest difficulty In cutting to the new ODT maximum was encountered by the Chestnut Farms Dairy. Its customers are so numerous and close together, explained Mr. Schultels, that even reduction of most regular and all extra deliveries still left miles of milk remits which could not be cut. As a result, delivery to customers in far outlying areas, he said, has be come Increasingly difficult. Check on Gas Bills. Dairies with scattered customers, on the other hand, have been able to meet the reduction of delivery mile age, sy simply routing trucks more economically. Dairy managers estimated their former delivery mileage by their last year's and this year's gas bills, it, was revealed. By the end of the month the gas bills are expected to show how successful the rubber and gas conservation step has been.
