, Airlines are at last to be given public credit for the job
"' for the Army Transport,Command and the Naval
Service, in flying war freight and passengers all
j world. Office of War Information is issuing a report on
the aubjeet after weeks of headaches and delay, trying to get
evettiwne concerned in agreement on what could or should be said.
*&e Jealousies going into this thing have been terrific. Nearly
evei$> .airline has been, afraid that it wouldn't get full credit for
whttji had done, or that one of the competitors would get more
credit than it deserved, or that the Army Transport Command
would get credit, ior something that the airlines had done, or that
ATC wouldn't let the commercial airlines announce what they
considered major achievements. Trying to keep the ambitious
airlines happy about what they have been doing for the war
effort has been a real problem.
HAS: DROP OUT OF WAR PICTURE
The 6WI report on commercial airline operation in the war
Qixmijtt out just in time for what may be a swan song on their
effort, In the beginning, the commercial airlines did the whole
Jpb. Army and Navy had no personnel, no planes, no experience
for. a transport job, so the airlines furnished everything and did
we work.. . /
T'pdajv on the transport operation, the commercial airlines are
doing about 30 per cent of the work. By the end of 1944 the com-
mercial airlines will be doing only about 10 per cent of the work.
If the-war lasts long enough, there may come a time when the
services will be doing all their own air transport flying, and the
airlines will be back in private business, exclusively.
For the airlines have taught the services how to run an air-
line. The airlines have run schools to train transport pilots and
navigators and ground crews and operations personnel.
When the services first went into air transport, the commercial
airlines had all the transport planes—358 of them before Pearl
Harbor. The services bought 176, turning about half over to mili-
tary and naval crews and assigning the others to the airlines to
operate for the services on a contract basis, hauling military
Today, with hundreds of new military transport planes com-
ingnoff.the production lines, t he arm^d services qre becoming more

lines, have now. been returned to them for commercial operation;
jijiviiif* the civil, domestic airlines a fleet of 202 planes with which
to operate. f
L Sftr.gradually, the commercial airlines, which have been insist-
ently urging that they be given more planes so as to permit them
to. their Wartime joh of carrying more domestic passengers, mail
anS express, are having this demand met. But it may be that the
more civil flying they do, the less they will be doing for the Army
and .Navy. And before long they may be converted back to their
civilian business entirely.
PROFIT BY THE in EXI'KRIKNCK
Their 'military and naval experience, however, has unques-
tionably been a good thing for the commercial airlines. They have
inade more money than they ever dreamed of making. It. has put
arits in the.seats of their flying pants, and all the airlines arc now
ambitious to expand their networks all over the world. .They have
flying experience and .the trained personnel to operate wherev-
ep/.t&ey can get permits and do business.
),-.The need for maintaining secrecy■ on their operations and. pro-
tecting military security have been the reasons why' the airliries
havf not been permitted to tell more about the part they have
played in the war. Tfie airlines ha.ve chafed under this military
censorship Pan American was, recently permitted to say it had
made 5000 ocean crossings, arid TWA 1000. Now the other lines
are to be permitted to tell what they have done too—Northeastern
in flying to Europe over the northern route, Northwestern to
Alaska, American and Eastern to South America, United to Aus-
tralia," American Export to North Africa. And all the airlines will
be permitted" to tell something of the work they have done in
contract flying, running modification centers, repairing and over-
hauling planes, training personnel.

In Sate Of Cars
Dealers and individuals who
sell motor vehicles after Dec-
ember 31, 1943, will be requir-
ed to surrender their gasoline
rations to the local War Price
and Rationing Board, according
to an announcement today by
M. H. Pior, chairman of the No-
lan County War Price and Ra-
"Motor vehicles" include au-
tomobiles, trucks, buses, and
motorcycles, the chairman said.
"The supply of gasoline avail,
able for civilian consumption
will decrease with each new of-
fensive of the allied armies,"
Pior said, "and this latest am-
endment to the Gasoline Ration-
ing Order is designed to tighten
the controls on the use of this
reduced supply of civilian gaso-
line. This action is another step
toward preventing gasoline cou-
pons from finding their way in-
to black market channels."
The new plan will work as
follows, according to the chair-

cle, the owner must bring his j
remaining mileage ration cou-;

the motor vehicle registrar when
applying for a transfer of title.
5. He will present the copy
of the reccipt and the tire in-
spection record to the Board

Pior stressed the provision
that all dealers in new or used
motor vehicles must submit an
inventory of their vehicles to
the local Board between Janu-
ary 1 and January 11, inclusive.
The inventory is to be submitt-
ed on OPA Form R-57S on Jan-
uary 1, 1011, or not later than
January 11, and should include
automobiles, trucks, buses, and
motorcycles which are held by
the dealer as of the close of bu-
siness on December 31, 1043.
"On receipt of this inven-
tory," Pior said, "we will isstie
a gasoline surrender receipt
(OPA Form Ft-569) ih duplicate
for each vehicle listed;" "We
will not be permitted to issue
gasoline ration coupons for a

"She's not. She is, as you say,

she's sound and sweet. The

"Thanks," he said, after a while,
and rose. "I'm overdue at the of-
fice," he told her. He put his
hand on her shoulder hard.
"You're swell," he said gratefully.
Long after he had left her she
sat there and felt the tears spill
down her face. Then she wiped
them away and went back into the
house. She hadn't let Nancy
down, and she hadn't let herself
down. Because she believed all
she had said. She knew Nancy,
none better. What she didn't be-

for Nancy, the man to call out all

be made happy in his turn.

she asked helplessly.

A UTUMN blazed past, and Mrs.
Edgar launched her campaign
beginning the night that Emily,
with extreme reluctance, dined at
the Edgar house, with a friendly,
even affectionate hostess. After
dinner she sent Frank up to the
attic in order to find an old snap-
shot book. During his abeence,
much prolonged as the book was
reposing in a bottom drawer of
Mrs. Edgar's own desk, she of-
fered Emily a cigaret and some
She said gently, "Frank's asked
you to marry him, hasn't he?"
Emily nodded, and waited.
"Of course, I would be delight-
ed," Elsie Edgar assured her, and
murmured something about her
affection for the entire Hall fam-
ily, "and y^t—you win permit me
to be honest?"
"Of course," said Emily, sup-
pressing a desire to laugh.
"For both your sakes," said Mrs.
Edgar smoothly, "it might not be
wise—much as 1 would like to
Emily said, rather shortly:
"I've refused him, Mrs. Edgar."
"You used to call me Aunt
Elsie," said the older woman. She
added, "He doesn't believe that
you'll go on refusing forever,
Frank's very persistent."
She added idly that, persistent
or not, he was susceptible. "That
pretty girl in New York—I dis-
approved of her, my dear. I hoped
he'd get over it, and he did. And
then I thought perhaps that he and

Emily waited again.

"If I knew what to do . . . It's
appalling to see him so indecisive,

if you weren't in Cranberry . . ."
Emily's eyes were quiet and
cautious. She braced herself. She
thought, here it comes, and she's
quite capable .. . Mrs. Edgar hur-
ried on. She said, "After all,

Emily said gently:
"I understand perfectly. But I
like my Job here, and the reason
I came home was to be near my
mother and father."
"Of course. And yet—"
Emily thought, it might be a
solution. Away from Cranberry—
from Jim. If she didn't see him
every day, if she didn't have to
watch him with Nancy, and feel
the slow twist of the knife each
time . . . ? She said, on a deep
"I—I will think it over."
"Good," said Mrs. Edgar. She
added after a minute, "By the
way, I haven't told anyone yet, not
even Frank, but I am expecting a
house guest. When I was in Eng-
land years ago I met such a
charming woman, Lady Eleanor
Dawson. The younger daughter of
the Duke of Molrey," she ex-
plained gently. "Her husband,
Captain Dawson, died during the
last war. She—Lady Eleanor—
has a very attractive daughter,
Muriel. Lady Eleanor sent her
over here to school when the blitz
started. She's spent most of her
vacations with relatives in Can-
ada . . . but I thought it would
be nice if she could spend Christ-
mas here ..
Mrs. Edgar went on smoothly,
"So I invited her a few days ago.
There's a .letter in today's mail
saying she'll be delighted to
come." She added that it would
be great fun to have a young girl
in the house. Muriel was nineteen,
a typical English blonde.
Emily repressed a desire to in-
quire about her teeth and the size
of her feet.
Frank arrived, disgusted. He
hadn't found the damned book. He
didn't believe it existed. His
