More Than Third Of .Coal Used To Heat Homes Reported To Be Wasted Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of articles dealing with the wartime conservation of nat ural and public resources in the interests of victory. It is re leased by the War Production Board. Conservation of coal, all the more necessary because of shortages of fuel in practically every section of the nation, is another way every householder can help bring the day of victory nearer. One-third of the fuel normally used for heating homes and other buildings in the United States is wasted, experts say. This waste can be caused thru an inefficient heating plant, inefficient operation of the plant, unnecessary heat loss from the building, and careless habits of living. Coal conservation is all the more important because it is of basic im portance to America’s manufactories as well as for home heating. It directly powers most railroads and generates more than 50 per cent of the total electric current used in the country. We have all the coal we need “This Is The Army” Opens Here Thursday Gala premiere showing of “This is the Army”, an all-star technicolor movie, will be in the Star Theatre this Thursday, opening a five-day run of the picture here. Proceeds of the local showing will go to the Army Emergency Relief fund. Seats for the two premiere per formances Thursday night will be reserved, it was announced by George Carmack, theatre manager. Admission for the premiere will be $1.10, with seats selling on the following four days at 28 cents for adults and 10 cents for children. Two shows will be given daily at 7 and 9 p. m. except Sunday when three showings are scheduled. Less desirable seats at the front of the theatre will not be sold for any of the shows. Musical numbers for the movie were written by Irving Berlin who appears in the production to sing his famous World War I song, “Oh How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning.” Altho several screen personalities take part in this great film, adapted from the hit stage play of the same name, soldiers make up the greater part of the cast. Ration Book No. 4 Available At Lima Bluffton and other Allen county residents who failed to obtain new Ration Books No. 4 during the October registration now may obtain them by applying at rationing board headquarters in the old post office building, High and Elizabeth streets, in Lima. Application should be made as soon as possible by those who have not yet registered, it was announced. Nearly 500 additional books have already been issued. A gift suggestion underground, but today’s problem is to make sure that sufficient quanti ties are mined and transported in a program that will get the right amounts to the right places at the right time. Approved firing practices alone can result in a great saving of fuel in every household, it is pointed out. Different types of coal require differ ent firing methods, and the best way to obtain best results is to get recom mendations from your supplier. Discontinuance of heating unused rooms is urged. Pulling shades to the bottom of windows will help to conserve heat greatly. Any barriers blocking the spread of heat such as chairs, radiator covers, etc., should be removed. Elimination of unnecessary venti lation also will help. Normally plenty of fresh air enters a room thru openings around the window frames, etc. Windows should never need to be open more than a crack, even at night. Remember always that coal is every bit as real a “fighting weap on” as steel, food, gasoline or TNT. Hence conservation of fuel should always be paramount in the minds of every patriotic ciitzen.

Ed Ral- host Ben Former Student In Oil Field Air Raids The Distinguished Flying Cross awarded recently to First Lieut. Al bert C. Naum, former Bluffton col lege student, was earned in one of the most spectaucular bombing at tacks of the war, it was learned this week. Lieut. Naum received the medal because of his participation in the low-level bombardment attack that leveled the Ploesti oil refineries in Rumania on August 1. In the attack 42 per cent of the total Rumanian capacity to refine oil was desroyed, and one of the most devastating blows of the war was dealt to the Axis war economy. To destroy the refineries the big U. S. B-24 Liberator bombers flew a round trip of 2,000 miles. They were opposed by heavy machine gun fire, light flak, heavy 88-milli meter anti-aircraft fire, barrage bal loons and practically every type of aircraft the Axis had in the area. A native of Lima, Lieut. Naum left Bluffton college as a senior in 1941 to enlist in the Army Air Corps.

In Memoriam In loving memory of Donald Craw fis who lost his life a year ago this month. I cannot say, and I will not say That he is dead—He is just away With a cherry smile, and a wave of the hand He has wandered into an unknown land, And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be, since he lingers there. And you—O you, who the wildest yearn For the old-time step and the glad return— Think of him faring on, as dear In the love of There as the Idve of Here Think of him still as the same, I say: is not dead—he is just away. —James Whitcolmb Riley, and Mrs. Earl Crawfis and Mrs. Gerald Grawfis and Mrs. Harold Crawfis.
