MID-WEEK TRAVEL EASES WEEK-END CONGESTION
You make it easier for yourself if you take trips, whenever
possible, on mid-week days when travel is lighter—and you
make it easier for soldiers, sailors, and war workers to travel
on week-ends, often the only time they can go.
BUS TRAVEL CONSERVES TIRES, CARS, VITAL MATERIALS
Each passenger can travel many miles farther by Greyhound
than by private car—per pound of rubber, per gallon of gaso
line. Then too there’s the saving of wear and tear on your
car and its valuable tires.
GET TICKETS,INFORMATION IN ADVANCE-AVOID DELAY
You can ease crowding at terminals if you get information
about routes, fares and schedules—and get your tickets, too
—well before you leave. On trips usually taken in mid
summer—arrange to go early or late, thus dodging the July
August rush period.

Nature has gone into the sugar
