Process Vehicles
WITH U. S. FORCES, Marseille,
France —Several Maryland soldiers
have set up an assembly line at Ord
nance Depot 0-6013, neap Marseille,
France, where more than 21,000 ve

While millions of persons are an
xiously looking forward to the suc
cessful conclusion of our war in the
Pacific for many reasons, its end and I
the resumption of peace time pro- j
duction will bring a special boon to j
victims of hay fever in the form of
more and cheaper air-conditioning
For thus far virtually the only re
lief in the legion of persons who suf
fer from this particularly annoying
malady can obtain is the complete
elimination of pollen from the air j
through air-conditioning, according I
to an article in the September issue
. of Good Housekeeping magazine.
“Hay fever is a disagreeable af
fltction,” the article states in part.
“It is not so serious that you can go
to bed and enjoy your misery, as you
would if you had even a common
cold. You get nervous and irritable,
nag your husband and snap at your
, children, fire that indifferent maid
. youi were so glad to have around be
■ fore this autumn rolled around; The
. result is that the atmsphere in your
home seasonally lacks serenity. You
i look so unlovely you don’t want to
. go to a tea or a bridge party. You
simply exist until the hay fever sea
son is past.”
But much of that discomfort will
be a thing of the past when air-con
ditioning units are available after
1 the war and as further medical
strides are made it is quite possible
that eventally hay fever and kindred
ailments will be brought under com
plete control.
“Air-conditioning or dehydration
of the room in which you spend most
of your time is helpful and not too
extravagant,” the article says. “It
protects you from pollen laden air
which is what you want. When air
conditioners are back on the market
they will be of good quality and pro
bably less expensive than they were
before the war. They will make life
pleasanter for you.”

“Each year at this time,” said Ed
i ward P. Curran, Keystone’s Safety
| Director, “we feel it our duty to
warn drivers of their responsibilities
in relation to the safety to school
j children. Many have heeded our
pleas in the past; others have ig
-1 j nored them, with saddening, often
tragic results. It must be fearful for
a man of conscience to go through
1 life knowing that through some
avoidable act of his, death or crip
pling injuries had befallen a child.
"Avoidance of accidents is not
easy. It is a job that must be worked
at, with diligence and patience. The
motorist must compensate in his own
sense of responsibility for the excus
able and wholly understandable ir
responsibility of childh oo d . He
should not assume that a child is go
ing to act with adult discretion in
any given situation. It is his job as a
driver to make all due allowances
for child behavior, with an extra
margin of safety for his own peace
of mind.
“On the parental side of the pic
ture, it is well for fathers and moth
ers to understand they share in the
responsibility of motorists for child
ren’s safety. By giving a good exam
ple in crossing streets properly and
instructing their children in the ne
cessity for care and caution, they can
help immeasureably in reducing the
tragic toll of child accidents.”

Right now fats and oils are in
shorter supply than they have been
at any period since the war began,
and this shortage probably will con
tinue through the spring of 1946.
Otiice of Price Administration and
the Department of Agriculture are
unanimous in the opinion that fats
and oils for domestic use —butter,
!ard, cooking and salad oils, short
ening, etc., will continue to be ra
tioned even if meat and cheese go off
rationing. That goes for industrial
fats and oils, too.
Women are naturally somewhat
confused when they see other ration
ing and salvage programs being dis
continued and so are butchers.
We still need every drop and ounce
of kitchen grease. Butchers will still
continue to pay cash and ration
points for it.
If you want to help speed up re
conversion, if you want to help the
Gl’s get home faster, if you want
more and better things get your little
fat cans working overtime.
