Gun Covers Protect Bibles
Bibles which are placed on
every life raft and life boat on
army transport vessels are being
protected from the effects of salt
water by the same type of cover
that protects pistols, rifles, and
machine guns in landing opera
tions. Curiously enough the cov
ers used for pistols are of exact
ly the rigttt size for copies of the
Bible, and have been adopted by the
Chaplains Corps as a standard
protective covering for them. The
covers were developed by the
Quartermaster Corps from a pli
able, transparent, waterproof film
known as vinyl. They are buoyant
enough to float the Bibles if they
are accidentally dropped overboard
or washed out of the rafts in heavy

you down walk into a cemetery and
look at the tombstones. Underneath
them are human beings who once
had worries.

law of the land with impunity.

"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
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! If you have any
questions, telephone or write us.
