Michigan Motorists Warned

DThOI Ja.ii m d
ward T. Broadweli, sta te gasoline ra-
tion officer, today warned Michigsan
motorists to stop "driving as usual,"
and urged budgeting of gasoline al-
lowances. He added that there is little
probability of driving being curtailed
as sharply here as in the East.
Drastic measures now in force in
the 17-state eastern oil shortage area
prohibit all pleasure driving. Yester-
day taxicab drivers in the East were
called upon by Joseph B. Eastman,
director of defense transportation, to
halt use of their cabs for pleasure.

S of the fuel ojih ge pub
lie schools in New Yark City have
b1een ordered closed for a week, start-
ing Feb. 1, and many non-defense
industries are planning a five day
work week.-
Broadwell blamed the holiday sea-
son and the newness of the ration
program in Michigan as the reason
so many motorists already have ex-
hausted their first allotments of gaso-
line. "We have reason to believe,
Broadwell stated, that many who ap-
plied for B and C books on an occu-
pational basis have been using gas
for all around purposes."

for a hot shower, they all stop to
glance at them.
. One might ask him for a towel and
maybe say he . doesn't agree with a
certain poem 6nthe bulei bard.
Scotty will first tell him he's cock-
eyed and proceed to prove it as qeuick
Yesterday Scotty thought they did-
n't want him around any more--but
he was mistaken. He' thought tl"(y
were going to ask him to quit. "I sold
my Scotch bir-rthr-right in the Ar-
rmy to come her-re," he was saying',
"and wher-re does it get me?"
The students all sympathized and
steps were taken to find out why
Scotty was going to leave. It was dis-
covered that he had not been asked
to quit, he had only been asked to
take on an additional duty.
Yesterday afternoon Scotty was
still handing out towels and com-
plaining about the life "you Amer-
ricans live here."
And all those Americans who know
him agree that he ought to go on
criticizing their way of life in the
locker-room because he enjoys the
freedom of speech more than anybody
they know. .
. For-r all pur-rposes, 'twould be an
agr-reeable situation all ar-round,

yesterday, Allied bombers destroyed
four fighters and damaged a bomber
and six Zeros on the Lae airfield.
Meanwhile that the Japanese have
strengthened their bases in the Solo-
mons area despite day-by-day attack
from American planes was indicated
today in a Navy communique which
related that two United States air-
craft were lost in a raid which set
afire enemy installations at Rekata
aThe attack on this base on Santa
Isabel Island about 135 miles from
Guadalcanal, was carried out Thurs-
day (East Longitude Time) by two-
engined Maurauder medium bombers
which had an escort of Airacobra
They ran into heavy anti-aircraft
fire which brought down the two
planes lost. Apparently the American
planes also were attacked by Japa-
nese aircraft, for the communique re-
ported two enemy float type planes
were damaged.
Four-engined Flying Fortresses, at-
tacking Bougainville Island, 300 miles
northwest of Guadalcanal, on the
same day were challenged by 12 Japa-.
nese Zero fighters. Two of the Japs
were shot down and no United States
planes-"were lost.
The communique also reported that
four-engined Liberator bombers had
dropped bombs on enemy positions at
Kiska in the Aleutians, but that re-
sults were not observed.
