The Government has called on the pub lic to stop “joy riding" on Sundays and to ustf their automobiles in cases of only ab solute necessity. It was gratifying. In deed. to sec that practically all of the peo ple of Hancock county observed this rule with but few exceptions. The Chairman of the Council of Defense called on the oil stations and garages and procured the pro mises of the owners of these places that positively no oil would he sold on Sunday, and the promises of these people were kept, and it is an honor not only to the owners of garages but to Hancock county. However, there were a few people who ▼totaled these rules notwit.staiidlnjx that the Government showed them the necessity for not running on Sunday, and. notwlth. standing that the public Jitneys observed the rules mapped out by the Government even though it meant a loss of money to them. We sincerely hope that these few cars will not he seen operating next Sun day and that these people operating their oars last Sunday will put up these cars on Sundays in future and that this rule will be strictly observed in Hancock coun ty. And let us hope that by Monday morn ing we can report to the Council of De fense that not one car in Hancock county was operated on Sunday except strictly for business purposes. We have done well by the Red Cross. Liberty Loan and Y. M. C. A. and let us hope that with this little order of the Gov ernment wc will not turn down this spier, did reputation that we have built. Sincerely trusting that it will not be necessary for the Council to write a per so no I letter to the different owners of these cars and asurlng you that if person, al letters \Vlll not prevent “Joy riding" on Sundays that we will take the matter up with Washington, and if personal ap peal will not do any good we will procure the necessary order that might be a lit tle stricter than an appeal. Wo do not think it is right that a few should be given the special privilege when the great mass of people are observing the rules and regulations as mapped out by the Government. We are. Very truly yours, HANCOCK COUNTY COUNCIL OF DE FENSE. 9 TO THE PUBLIC OF BAY ST. LOUIS AND HANCOCK COUNTY. Bay St. Louis. Miss., Sept. 2. 1018.
