I UU I\ L Al\ MOST om of it
Noie: Every motorist needs to know how to get the most
out of his car —for his own and for his country’s sake. Follow
ing is the first of a series of articles on car conservation. They
are based on material just published in a book, Automobile-
User’s Guide, which was prepared by the Customer Research
staff of General Motors in cooperation with General Motors
engineers. Proving Ground experts, research technicians and
service specialists.
To make your car serve for
the duration, you must be both
a careful driver and a careful \y a u-A j
owner. You must (1) operate 7 / "'nh
your car sensibly and (2) sec It ,M 0 j 1 Ov\
that it is kept in top-notch \ I ( i)
Wi A t ii; 111
A careful driver, irom the v
point of view of your car. is not iust a good driver Many thing.-
that a good driver can do under normal, peacetime conditions,
a careful driver would be foolish to do today. A careful driver
would not drive fast today even on the best and safest road
in the country unless saving a few minutes time were ot para
mount importance.
Similarly, the rules of car maintenance have changed. Points
that were of minor importance before Pearl Harbor now must
be given first consideration. Under-inflation has always been
bad for tires, yes. But some were willing to pay in decreased
tire mileage for a more cushioned ride. Today that price has
become prohibitive.
It will be worth your while to review your motoring habits
and decide how they must be changed to meet changed con
ditions. The next two articles in this series will discuss how
to operate your car to squeeze every ounce of mileage out of it.
Tires, lubrication, motor, brakes, instruments and car appear
ance will be dealt with in subsequent installments.

STE\ ENsVTLLE FIRE
DESTROYS THE THEATRE
In the most disastrous fire Stevens
ville has had in many years, the Ste
vensville Opera House was complete
ly destroyed, last Saturday afternoon.
The fire was discovered shortly af
ter 12 o'clock noon. Fire companies
from Queenstown and Centreville bat
tled the blaze, and succeeded in con
fining it to the theatre.
The buiiding which formerly was
the Methodist Church, was purchased
and remodeled some years ago by
Senator Kirwan. but for some time
had been the property of Lemuel Kir
wan, who also owned the movie e
quipment. which was also destroyed
by the fire, too.
The theatre had been operated for
several years as the Stevensville Op
era House, the completely equipped
building being rented from Mr. Kir
wan by F. P. Klein, who also oper
ates the Churchill Theatre. Accord
ing to Mr. Klein, there was also in
the building at the time of the fire
some $2,500 worth of equipment which
was his property. Everything but
this latter equipment is said to have
been covered by insurance.

1 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
main* it easier for soldiers, sailors, and war workers to travel
on week-ends, often the only time they can go.
2 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.
3 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.

Better fertilizers are made with better ma

Plant Food Fertilizers have always done an
outstanding' job in the field. Worcester has
always used outstanding materials—materials
that meet the plant's requirement at the stat
ed time.
For 1942 Worcester has assembled high quali

results will bear this out. You can depend on
Worcester for every crop. Make your arrange
ments now to use Worcester on each alcre —
on every crop.
Fertilizer pays its way and you can afford to
use more fertilizer this year—extra produc

plication of Worcester will increase your
yields tremendously.
Worcester will be glad to discuss your fertili
zer requirements with you at any time.
