To the people \t) our own town who like to go motoring ■on Sunday or who use Sunday as a day to drive out tp see ■relatives and friends, it would bp a definite .sacrifice at first |to leave the car in the garage all day. But many of us would welcome the opportunity to make [such a sacrifice, if it was evident that by so doing we were (strengthening our n a tion s ,defense. As far as the people of this town go, gas-less Sundays vould be taken in stride and there wouldn’t be any oom- Iplaining. But the small group in our town who happen to |he in the gasoline business* running local stations, would puffer a real hardship if their most prosperous business day vas taken away from them.’ The purpose of gas-less Sundays would be to reduce ppr consumption of gasoline and oil and that means taking dollars out of the pockets of the gasoline dealers. They, |too, will be willing to make that sacrifice if the government |finds that it is vital to do so, but We hope, if' there are any (other practical solutions to the oil problem, such as pipelines [to the eastern coast, they will he adopted. Any action which penalizes one group without affecting others is always distasteful to Americans. W e know that |one group after another, during the present emergency, will |be called upon to sacrifice, but we hope that none will be |asked to do sq unnecessarily. [Still A n a ly z in g U . S. o f 1940 The U. S. Bureau of Census is still compiling those facts [which everyone here in town, as well as in, every home [throughout the nation, gave to the census-taker months and ■months ago. For some time we have known w h at they found the pop­ ulation of our town to be. W e alsp haye seen a jo t of other [information on incomes, population by age groups, foreign [population and so on. But that’s really just the beginning. The Census Bureap fitst .treledses |j'relimmary .figures on [one subject, then., another .'■>and&ilfiadiibllgt* issues—'•complete [studies on all phases of tfie make-up of our country, not [only of population but of business as well. It must be rather a thankless job, handling the census. [For after completing the tremendoug task of tabulating all [sorts of figures on the whole country, when it is all done lour first reaction is apt to be, “That’s old stuff. Things [have changed since then.” That is particularly true in relation to the 1940 census. (Because of defense there have been great shifts in population [and great changes in the unemployment situation. The men in the Census Bureau realize all that, but they Ipay no attention. Their sole job is to give an accurate de- Jtailed picture of the United States of 1 940, and- the many (changes which have taken place since then must be entirely (ignored. D A L E MAKING THE MOST OF AN IDEA In November, 1914, a woman in Washington, ;D. C., pin, cd her five-weeks-old baby in a market basket and started for Battle Harbor, Labrador. She arrived at Battle ru.-Loi L>> ihe last boat of the season and was snow and ice-bound for the winter. Her trip that day may have an effect on the food you are served. Her name was Mrs. Clarence (Birdseye. Hor husband was a fur fiuy- ’r He went up arid down (labrador on snowshoes, and | by doj-sled. buying furs from | t^t’ \Mives. But pow a new [problem had entered into his [hfe His wife was with him, [and there was the baby. His [mte wished to keep ih the best [condition on account of the ■child, so food was an impor- l»nt matter. He took the [chotee cuts of earihou, fish, |Wd ptarmigan and carried ll«em home to her.

He was now fired with the idea. When they returned to the United States he continu­ ed-his experiments. His wife’s kitchen was his laboratory.

After a time the kitchen was too ’ small; then he opened a little . laboratory in ■ Gloucester, Mass., Where there was plenty of fish. , Hp worked out a method of quick-freezing. He improved on it. Called in experts to help him. In 1929 he and his stock­ holders sold their interest for $22,000,090. The business is now owned by General Foods Corporation, and the quick frozen- prpducts it packs are ' called Birdseye Frosted Foods iiVhonor' of himself and Mrs. Birdseye. The secret of Mr. and Mrs. Biidseye’s amazing success is that they stumbled onto an idea—and, then did something about it!

Lesson for June 22: Acts 15:6- 31, Golden Text! Acts 15:11. Tfie church, ancient and mod­ ern, in all its branches, has had many great councils. The les­ son tells of a momentous confer­ ence on World Missions. The immediate cause of this conference was the growing con­ troversy and possible division in the infant church over the mat­ ter of what should be required of gentile converts. One party was insisting that the .ceremo­ nial law of the Jews should he required pf tfie converts; qthers -were opposing,this extreme vieyv. Peter referred to his experi­ ence with Cornelius,' Paul and Barnabas told of the results which had attended their minis­ try unto the -gentiles, James ■cited prophecy, and the decision of the conference that the cere­ monial customs of the Jews should not toe required of tihe gentiles was indeed a wise one. If the so-called “Judaizers\ had preyajled the church would have become a Jewish institu­ tion—With little zeal to go untjo the gentiles and with little ap­ peal unto them. Fortunate then it was that fihe more liberal in the conference were able -to adopt a policy that greatly Strengthened the appeal of the church unto men whatsoever.

It all depends on what you read,-or to whom you listen, whether you get the impression that We are accomplishing pro­ duction miracles dr are just leaning on our shovels between pay days. If production could b& meas­ ured in terms of dollars'appro­ priated, it would seem as though we ought soon to have a bom­ ber, a tank, a battleship apd perhaps a matched set of mach­ ine guns for every man, woman and child m .Am^ripa. Of at least we should have enough? of such equipment to protect all Americans against any .attacks by .any enemy. ' So . f,ar, unless, my adding machine got iammed ’ ‘ oVer handling such big 'numbers, congress has, appropriated §41,- 900,009,900 for our defense and for aid to Britain, most of Which is ear-marked to fie spent befpre the end'of 1942. That’s equal to an expendi­ ture of over .§1,2QG for every family in America, Which' is a lot pf dollars even to a nation which is putting its currency on the poWder staridard. If we could buy an “arsenal of pemocracy\ by just drawing a check for $41,000,000,000 to the qrder of a reliable arsenal tnaker we’d he doing all right, but now that the appropriating season is over, our main interest creditable.record, but anyone who thinks all of the recent eommotiori ahout production a n d appropriating billions means we are. now ready to go out and lick the world, has an­ other guess coming. GERMANY . billions In the conclusion of its re­ port, the Office of Emergency Management admits that pro­ gress in the first year of defense has been “largely preliminary to the real production which must come\ and that produc­ tion next year must be at least five times what it was in trie last year, of must amount. to at least $25,000,000,000. But even that doesn't meam that we can catch up tp Ger­ many for some time. Germany is now spending three billion a mbhth, ,or“39 billiori d‘ yeaf'fibf amatnerits, which is three times the' rate of production credited tp Germany when Nazi armies marched into Poland a year and a half ago. Germany is alsp getting booty from The\ cauntriel she has conquered. I’m ppt taking those figures out pf thin air They too are, figures reported by the Office of Emergency Management and in this case there is no reason for that office to magnify them. Those figures show that during the lasfryear -Germany prob­ ably added seven times as mueh equipment to her forces as we did.

Others are equally tired and sleepy,- not frpm too little rest, but' from too much. If you dash out of the office Saturday.noon and plunge im­ mediately into a round of danc­ ing, skating, skiing, or any other active entertainment, you are bound to be. physically ex­ hausted Monday morning. Yoqr body is not accustomed to these bursts qf energy and it is going to resent such treatment. S q . too, |f you throw all your regular habits to the four winds and stay in bed, or sit around the house glancing over the papers- smoking endless cigarettes and munching at • candy or tidbits, you will probably wind up feel­ ing grumpy and logey and won­ der why you are so tired. Get some rest oh your days off, but get some exercise top, Keep to your regular hours for arising and for meais.

Of that five billion in cash which was handed out for fin­ ished products, 621 million was spent on ships, 605 million ■ on aircraft and . 501 million on ordnance (powder, guns.-e’tc.)— a totg} of $ 1 , 727 , 000,090 for arm­ aments. The other $3,373,000,000 was spent for fortifications, in­ dustrial facilities; construction and pay rolls. . . These latter expenditures are all a necessary part of defense, a large part of them being an investment in facilities to make increased production possible, but the big interest to most of us is the actual size of the war machine which we hav-e been able to produce. As closely as I can figure it, in the 12 months ending May 30. we produced 10,000 planes, two battleships, one aircraft carrier, ihree cruisers, 22 submarines, 27 destroyers (but gave 50 to Eng­ land) and perhaps - 1,000 light tanks plus an increase in rifles, ammufiitjon and other smaller armaments. , I realize the task .qf getting all-out production under way Is enormous, and that there may which the sap circulates, but a layer of spongy, elastic, tough and impervious cellular tissue that forms outside the true bark. If the true or inner bark of the cork oak Is damaged, the tree will die ; but the outer layer of cork,\ which 4s light because composed of the'wails of dead cells filled with air, may be re­ moved.
