Traffic Lights Need
To Be Ended As Gas
Saving Measure Here
(By A Staff Writer)
With the request coming now
from none other than Joseph B
Eastman, defense transportation
director, that state and municipal
authorities adjust traffic control
signals by elimination of unnec-
essary traffic signals, the posi-
tion taken by the Press some
weeks back that Denison could do
away with her traffic signals
for the duration, is given added
Many friends of the Tress have
indicated their indorsement of the
position of the paper that it is
a measure to be adopted in favor
of saving the small supply of gas
now rationed under most of the
cards, since such a multiplicity
of stopping in the down town
section eats up gas that other-
wise might be saved,
lights fill a needful place, but in
war times and with the 35 mile
speed limit, it is hardly necessary
that we have the lights in most
cases, especially with the gas ra-
tioning on as it is.
The low speed rate will re-
duce the hazards of the absence
of traffic lights enough to justify
the temporary' demise of the
lights. That is the chief reason
why Mr. Eastman is making the
Mr. Eastman’s, suggestions, he
states, is based on the report
made to him by a group of traf-
The Press has received enough
response to its position taken
some weeks back that the lights
be done away with for the dura-
tion to establish the conviction
that such a move on the part of
the city officials will meet with
Ag a general thing the traffic!a general hearty response.

will sponsor the Victory Garden
movement as their task for the
year, and more than five acres of
ground had been offered by pub-
lic spirited citizens for the pur-
pose on the first day after an-
nouncement of the program, ac-
cording to W. E. Biggs, who was
in Denison Wednesday.

committee to be in charge of the

composed of Knights J. C. Pow-
ell, Gus Handley and Roy Jaco.
Can Play Havoc
The Press has been asked by
several citizens who propose to
plant a war time garden just
what may be expected in the
way of protection from neigh-
bor’s chickens and roving dogs.
Matters of that kind should be
taken up with the local police,
if and when they find their gar-
dens suffering from such sources.
It is quite likely that many
complaints will be raised this
year with such a universal move
on to make gardens in the food
for victory move.
City laws are adequate to pro-
tect from such sources, but that
will not compensate for the man’s
garden which has been scratched
up or run over by stray dogs, it
is indicated by one garden fan
who says court fines and dam-
ages paid with money can’t do
Within seven days from the
time JE'nsign Gordon McDaniel,
26, son of Mr. and Mrs. B. Mc-
Daniel of this city, bade his par-

Bicycle Victim in Hospital
Mrs. Andrew Buckner, 417 W.
Munson street, is recovering in
the Long-Sneed hospital following
injuries received when she col-
lided with an automobile while
negotiating a traffic mixup at
Chestnut and Fannin. She re-
ceived a broken collar bone.
ents goodbye after a four-day
visit with them, news was re-
ceived of his death following a
crash in a navy plane at Ream
Field, Cal., Monday the 15th.
Ensign McDaniel, Denison
born and reared and educated in
the local schools, was a graduate
of the law department of Texas
State University and was con-
nected with the law firm of
Campbell, Myer & Eastham at
Houston when he enlisted in the

and with so many baby chicks I day, 1942, at the Dallas
being raised, police point out
that it is time now for all
fences to be conditioned so they
will keep chickens on their own
It will be impossible for many
gardens to be fenced in as va-
cant lots with no fences are be-
ing used in large numbers and
freezing of building materials
make it out of the question to
erect fences, it is declared.

Now that it has been definite-
ly determined that supplies of
home-preserved products will not
cause famillies to forfeit stamps
in War Ration Book No. 2 soon
to be issued, the well stocked
pantry becomes even, more valua-
Before spring gardens come
into production many families
will need to fall back on their
home-preserved foods to assure
their famillies adequate diets,
says Winifred domed, specialist
in food preservation for the A.
and M. College Extension Service.
For that reason they should take
the best possible care of home
canned, dried and brined foods
they have on hand.
Miss Jones suggests that food
canned in glass should be kept in
a cool, dark place. The darkness
helps the food hold color and
vitamins. Tinned goods should
he kept dry to prevent them from
rusting. Rust can eat through
metals and cause the food inside
the can to spoil
There is a special treatment
needed by home-dried fruits and
vegetables. These should be
stored in tight, moistureproof
containers and kept in a cool,
dark, dry place. Miss Jones ad-
vises that homemakers check their
dried products frequently to make
certain they are kept dry and
that they are not damaged by j
weevils or other pests.
foods need a place in the freez-
ing compartment of a mechanical j
refrigerator, and they should be;
kept there until they are to be j
used. They must he kept frozen j
solidly, Miss Jones says, and un-
'ess refrigeration is constant1

ducing powers, a total of $100 is
