Each of the members did everything
he could to handle the task impar
tially and fairly to all concerned.
But there aren't but so many tires to
go around, and sooner or later the
public is going to realize the serious
ness of the war and the resulting
shortages in materials and goods.
Martin County was allotted 17 car
and 30 truck tires for the month of
January The allocations are to be
handled by weeks; that is, the board
may not allot more than one-fourth
the first week and so on during the
month. The car allotment has been
exhausted as of to date, but there is
a surplus of nine truck tires for the
rationing board to allot, and this
number will be increased to sixteen
bv next Monday, leaving about eight
for rationing in tin last week of Jan
uary. The February allotment has
not yet been released. If the Janu
ary quota is not allotted, the sur
plus is forfeited. ?
The rationing board will hold
weekly meetings each Monday from
10 a m. to 12 noon. Miss Marjorie

office in the county commissioners'

more than 30 industrial centers to
wreck old machinery and equipment
to salvage needed materials; to min
imize waste and spoilage, to handle
scrap and speed its return to users.
OPM also recommended elimina
tion of special deliveries of milk and
substitution of every -other-day de
livery for daily delivery to conserve
tires. The agency recommended man- I
' ufaeturers simplify the types of hot- '
tics and other containers and elim

Conditions, motorists on Martin
County highways went through
the second week of the New
War with only one accident be
ing reported. So far four acci
dents have been reported in 1942
or about one road accident for
every three days. Motorists had
a clean slate during the first
few days of 1941.
If we are taught to drive more
slowly and recognize the serious
responsibilities when we seat
ourselves under a steering wheel,
certainly the war will have not
been although in vain.
