The MOUNTAINEER "There is no shortage of electric power . . . and there will be none ... for war and essential civilian require ments." J. A. KRUG, Director Office of War Utilities 0at 'Ztdft vw THme f "Th War Production Board has proclaimed that maxi mum war production requires the greatest possible conserva tion of manpower, transportation, fuel, equipment and critical material such as copper, steel, tungsten and many others much greater than has been heretofore accomplished. It believes that this greater conservation can be accomplished by the voluntary cooperation of all citizens of our country in the effort." YOU CAN HELP SPEED VICTORY BY SAVING Fuel Man-power e Transportation s Vital materials Since Pearl Harbor there has not been a tingle instance of shortage of electricity in the whole United States for any war production job for any user; home, farm, office, store or factory. Even though this country has more electricity than all the Axis nations combined we are asked to use it wisely during this conservation pr- -am. Any reduction you can safely make in its use will ce the amount of fuel needed to make it. That will megn fewer' ynt can to haul it and fewer man hours to handle it. Mc.j car and more men will be available for the war effort. Each little bit that you save, multiplied by thousands of other Americans, will be an important contribution to the Voluntary Conservation Pro gram. Help Win the War by Saving More!
