Rubye Alexander Typists, ......Willie Mae Durr, Carlie Otis With the Thanksgiving season at hand, we hope the students will follow the correct procedure in ce lebrating this glorious day. Thanksgiving is not a season when we let our emotions control us, but when we should control our emotions and follow a more sacred program of celebrating. This year, more than ever before we have much for which to be thankful, a free country, freedom of speech, freedom aof the press, and above all freedom to God in our respective ways. So, fellow students let us bow our heads in solemn thanksgiving to God for all his blessings in the past and the great privilege of I-- —1111. being able to loo kahead ao a future that will be made happy and bright by our faith and de votion to God.

Motorists Will Lose Gas Book By Speed’g It is important that motorists understand the plan followed in Mississippi to secure compliance with the 35 mile per hour speed limit, J. D. Wise, OPA State Ra tioning Officer, stated today. The State Highway patrol is be ing assisted by the Auxiliary Hi ghway Patrol consisting of 1800 volunteers who receive no pay for their services. Each member of the Auxiliary Patrol has been commis tler. Most Polite boy, Eddie Robin son. Jolliest boy, Johnnie Jones. ^oiliest girl, Ernestine Harris. Sweet Couple, Margaret Ransom, and Clarence Green. Most polite girl, Winell Hooks. ! BULLDOG GROWLS Ambrose Hall and Dorothy Po lk are really that way about each other. There talk about a new ro mance between Charlie Wilson and Lois Wilson, what about that E. W. and E. B. What would happen if: Marg aret Ransom could keep Samuel Rundles away from Ruby Lee Po well. Ella Mae Jones would stop talk ing Ruby Hornsby boyfriend and get one of her own. Letha Mae Gunns would stop breaking verbs. Roosevelt McGee would lose that country drawl. Nora Lou would stop trying to act cute. sioned by Colonel T P. Brady, Co mmissioner of Public Safety. When a motorist is found ex ceeding the 35 mile speed limit, the patrolman blows the 'Victory signal which is three short blasts and a long one, to warn the speeder If he does not heed the warning, a report is made to the State Hi ghway Patrol and a warning let ter is sent him. If he is found ex ceeding the speed limit a second time, he is prosecuted on a charge of reckless driving, and upon con viction, his local War Price and Rationing Board must deprive him of his gasoline ration book, Mr. Wise explained. It was emphasized however, that the Office of Price Adminis tration is expecting the patriotic voluntary cooperation of the mo toring public as an obligation due the men and women of the armed forces of America. Ration Board Gives Tips For Safety Of Gas Books The Copiah County War Price and Rationing Board, in urging that all passenger car owners in the county take the greatest of care of the ‘A’ gasoline ration cou- j pon books in their possession, lists several precautions which, if fol lowed, will prevent the loss of theft of the books. The extremely dif ficult task of obtaining books to replace any that may be lost, sto len or destroyed makes it impor tant that every coupon book hol der observe these precautions. First, (and this is an instruc tion handed down by the OPA) with ink or indelible pencil write your license tag number and the state of issuance on the back side of each and every coupon in youf book. Second, be sure to sign your name on the inside of the back cover of the book. This is required, anyway, and will serve as an ad ditional means of identification. Third, perspiration or constant handling may cause the covers of the book to come off. The cou pons will be worthless without the covers, so see to it that both remain tightly glued in place. Fourth, do not leave your book around loose in your car. If you keep it in the glove compartment, keep the compartment locked. If stolen, the book won’t do the other fellow any good, but it will mean plenty of trouble for you. Observe these precautions, and any others that you can think of and you’ll not have to sit at home and watch the cars go hy. Just re member, your book is more valua ble than money. If you loose your money, you can usually borrow more, but nobody would be inter ested in lending you their gas ra tion book, even if they could. And they couldn’t.
