Five Ways Suggested
To Save Those Tires
^ From A. BTlSSfGng, a farmer of
Freeville, N. Y., comes these five good
rules for saving tires:
1. See that wheels are aligned,
keep tires properly inflated, watch
out for and repair cracks or cuts
before they turn into blowouts, and
don’t drive faster than 30 miles an
2. Pick up all nails, pieces of
board, broken glass, jagged rocks in
the highway and around your own
buildings and driveways.
3. Make sure that you carry an
nflated spare tire, or air-pump and
patching kit. A ruined tube or casing
now is a tragedy.
4. Cut driving in bad wearier to
a minimum. Mud is hard on tires. ^
5. Keep your car and trude—and
spare tire and parts—under k>dc, es.
pecially at night.
/ ngathering Day
The annual ingathering harvest
will be held at the Montpelier Pres
byterian church, Wagram, on Thurs
day, Oct. 29th.
It will be different this yeiur, so
you will want to be there. There
will be four booths with various
fruits, vegetables, fancy work, shrubs
and the like on sale, where you can
go and purchase just what you want
right across the courter. This will
eliminate the usual wait made neces
sary by a complete auction sale.
However, many products will be on
sale at auction, especially articles that
are scarce and are in demand.
Then those “Wagram cakes” will
be on sale at auction to the highest
bidder, and this will be an oppor
tunity to get a real country style
cake for your family use. You know
what you are buying when you buy
a Wagram cake.
The lunch time is simplified this
year. When you get ready for din
ner, you will find one booth) where
you can get barbecue and the trim
mings, and another where you can
get a general plate, and if you want
just sandwiches and a cup of coffee
there will be a place that you can
get this. And there will be ice cream
for the kiddies. So plan to attend

Fuel Oil Registration for re
tailers will be at the Rationing
Office Tuesday and Wednesday
evening, Oot. 27 and 28, beginning
at 7 p. m. Consumer registra
tion will be announced later.
Raleigh, Oct. 21—Sharp curtailment
of the supply of fuel oil this winter
probably will increase largely' the
I’se of small, portable heaters with
resultant fire hazard, Ben. E. Doug,
las, State Director of Civilian Defense
said in urging all people to be ex
tremely careful with such equipment,
“Because of the importance of pre
venting waste in all forms and be
cause fire is one of the most ^wanton
wasters. Civilian Defense Is actively
encouraging widespread education on
fire prevention, because of their par
ticular hazard, the safe operation of
these heaters is an important part in
the fire prevention program,” Doug
The dangers will be minimized,
Douglas added, if operaiors of port«;
able heaters will observe the simple
rules laid down by Ae organizations
sponsoring Fire Prevention Weds:
1. Be sure that the heater is auto
matically soimd. Defective electric
equipment should be r^aired by »
licensed electrician. Worn or frayed
cord or plugs should be replaced. Gas
and kerosene heaters should be thor
oughly tested for leaks and mediani-
2. Locate heaters so* that they are
away from domestic traffic and safe
from contact by children. Fires are
caused by portable heaters being
tripped over and upset, or molested
3. Be careful that heaters are al
ways kept a safe distance from com
bustibles. Woodwork, furniture and
other household combustibles can be
set afire by prolonged exposure to
kerosene and gas heaters, and to some
extent electric heaters.
4. Keep heater wicks, burners and
other parts clean and in''good repair.
5. Keep portable heaters turned
off except when a responsible adult
6. Kerosene is a definite fire haz
ard. It should be stored in safety
cans in a cool place out of doors.
Avoid spilling it when filling heater
tanks and adjust burner to prevent
flooding and overflow.
7. If it is necessary to use a stove
kettle to obtain adequate hot water
do not get into the habit of leaving
a small flame constantly lighted under
the kettle. Such flames are easily
blown out, filling the room with high
ly inflanunable gas. Or a curtain,
tea towel or other combustible mate
rial may fall or blow onto the burner
in such a manner as to ignite. In
addition, many types of ordinary
heating insulation are not designed
to withstand prolonged and excessive
heat. Near by woodwork may become
charred and create a fire hazard.
8. Regard all emergency heating
devices as temporary expedients re
quiring extra care and caution. The
time spent in a second look may save
you the trouble of rebuilding your

: The “V-Home” certificate will be
signed by Air Raid Warden or other
accredited Civilian Defense officer,
“Homes which meet the standards
upon which these certificates are to

in the fact that they are intefpal
fighting units cm the Home Front,”
Ben E. Douglas, state director of Ci
vilian Defense, stated in the an
nouncement to local councils that the
certificates were being shipped to
local councils as rapidly as posisble.

Now Is Good Time
To Clear Up Debts
Many farmers are straining a point
to clear up old debts. They know
only too well what happen^ after
the last war when all too many went
into a period of depression prices
burdtned by debts incurred during
boom periods. Tk.ey don’t want to
to repeat the mistake.
“The city man in debt,” says Walter
Ellis, associate editor of the Eastern
States Co-operator, “assumes much
less risk than the farmer who puts
a mortgage on his way of life as well
as his property. The fanner‘in debt
cannot always be a free operator. The
person with pressing debts will often
make muddled and unwise decisions.”
