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.

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.
