Have you signed up with a nc-w set of driving habits for the
duration? Like defense bonds they pay interest, but it is in
terest many times compounded. You may only be thinking of
saving tires, but more careful operation of your car also means
less gas and oil used, less wear on mechanical parts, less likeli
hood of accidents, injuries and replacement of hard-to-get parts.
Here are some suggestions ?
that other experienced driv- -w,
ers have found effective:
'Depress the clutch pedal
while starting the engine.
Then the battery isn’t given the extra job of turning the trans
mission gears.
Don’t race the motor during the warm-up period. By taking
it easy at first you save gas and give the oil a chance to get
to work.
Use the hand choke (if you have one) sparingly. Improper
use wastes gas and may cause serious dilution of oil in the
Shift gears at the lowest practical speed. Low gear is needed
principally to overcome starting inertia. Shift to high between
15 and 25 miles an hour. Remember: you pay for a jack-rabbit
start in tire and clutch wear and extra gas used —and the fel
low you outdistance usually pulls up beside you at the next
traffic light.

Expanding old yards, building new ones, tripling employ

every effective facility to use, adopting pre-assembly and mass
production methods—all these spell tonnage and more tonnage,
a steadily-mounting output of ships from Bethlehem yards.
