BUY YOUR WINTER'S FUEL NOW We've all been advised not to hoard---and that's necessary advice indeed. But there is one basic com- modity which the governmet wants us to "hoard" now---coal. High officials are urging indi- viduals to purchase next winter's coal stocks before summer ends-- and preferably immediately. ~ This, of course, isn't "hoarding" at all. It is, instead, a definite contribution to the war effort. The reason for it is simple. If everyone waits until cold weather arrives before ordering coal, the drain on the mines and on the agen- cies which must ~ansport the fuel, will be tremenduous. Worst of all, that drain will come at a time---early and middle fallmwhen crop move- ments are at their peak. And in addition, war freight of all kinds will be substantially heaver in the fall than now. The point is to get every possible ton of coal into the hands of the ultimate consumer at the earli'est possible time. So, buy your winter's coal today. Then you'll be doing your part to clear the transportation lines for war traffic. And you'll also make certain that you won't be out of fuel when you need it.

BUY DEFENSE BONDS AND STAMPS ', Satuache County National Bank MEMBER FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION Phantom Pound Mars Sugar Deal One Pueblo grocer is pretty sure he's taking a beating under the sugar rationing setup. Following sugar rationing direc- tions, the grocer had one of his em- ployes convert a 100-pound sack into one-pound packages since each ration stamp is good for only one pound of sugar. The employe had only 99 one- pound sacks when he finished. He tried again~and still could fill only 99 one-pound sacks. The grocer says it is humanly im- possible to weigh out 100 pounds of sugar into one-pound piles and end up with 100 piles. The human ele- ment sees "to that, he says. The grocer has 60 of the 100- pound sacks as a basic stock. He must have a sugar ration stamp for each pound he sells in order to re- plenish his stock. But, says the grocer, he'll be one stamp short every time he sells a 100-pound sack in one-pound pack- ages and, if the war lasts long enough and sugar rationing contin- ues, he eventually will have no sugar to sell.~Salida" Mail.
