“With veterans returning to the
Matagorda Bay rental urea in in-
creasing numbers, some families
are opening up portions of their
homes to veterans’ families unuble
to find housing accommodations,”
Mrs. Emma I,. Carleton Area Rent
Director said today.
“It is hoped ’’Jfiat hundreds of
other furnilies will share their
homes with veterans’ families, who
are finding it increasingly difficult
to find living quarters in this
crowded area. In most cases, these
housing units are being rented foi
the first time and some residents
are not familiar with the simple
procedures provided by OPA foi
fixing legal rents in these cases.
“Whenever premises are being
rented for the first time, the land-
lord may set his own rent with the
understanding that it will be sub-
ject to adjustment later to conform
with the prevailing rates for com-
parable accommodations rented in
this area on the maximum rent
date. If the landlord prefers, how-
ever prior to renting the premises
for the first time, we will inform
him of the gcnerully prevailing rent
for comparable accommodations and
give him a rental range commit-

notify the Area Rent Office, 2109
Avenue G and request a prior opin-
ion as to the proper rent under the
Regulation. Prompt attention will
be given all requests because we
realize how vital it is to returning
veterans that housing accommoda-

soon as possible.
Residents are performing an im-

when they offer housing accommo-

will be appreciated by the veterans,
their families and the OPA.”

AUSTIN.—Dr. Geo. W. Cox,
State Health Officer, has issued
the following statements and sug-
gestions concerning the control and
prevention of poliomyelitis which
is now occurring in certain sec-
tions of the State.
Until recently it was generally
believed that this infection is trans-
mitted by means of discharges
from the respiratory tract. It is
now believed that poliomyelitis may
be another of the several gastroin-
testinal infections. Therefore, con-
trol measures must include clean-up
campaigns and improvements in
Strict sanitary measures must be
observed in all communities. Strin-
gent efforts should be made to
eliminate the house-fly and to de-
stroy its breeding places. All mo-
squitoes and mosquito breeding
places must be eliminated at onec.
Every effort should be made to in-
stitute approved garbage collection
sysf ms immediately. Safe water
supplies must be assured. Where
adequate municipal sewage disposal
systems are not in operation, it is
vitally important to promote and
maintain sanitary septic tunks and
All swimming pools should, under
rigid supervision, maintain those
standards approved by the Texas
State Department of Health. This
necessurily includes maintenance
qf proper chlorine level. Where
such standards are not maintained,
these pools should be closed im-
All raw foods and vegetables
should be washed thoroughly before
use and protected from flies, filth
and insects. All eating and food
handling establishments should ad-
here strictly to the State Law con-
cerning the sterilization of dishe_

C. P. L. Honored
Service by Navy
Central Power and Light Com-
pany and its employees have been
commended by the United States
Navy for “meritorious service and
outstanding performance rendered
beyond normal responsibility during
World Wur II."
Similar recognition of the com-
pany’s wartime service has been ex-
tended by the War Department in
the form of a certificate addressed
to Lon C. Hill, CPL president.
Specifying "patriotic service in a
position of trust and responsibil-
ity,” the certificate is signed by Lt.
Gen. Walton H. Walker, command-
ing officer of the Eighth Service
Command, Dallas; Robert P. Pat-
terson, Secretary of War; and Lt.
Gen. LeRoy Lutes, commanding of-
ficer of the Army Service Forces.
The Navy citation, also addressed
to Hill, expressed the Navy's ap-
preciation to the management and
employees of the compuny. It was
signed by Rear Admiral J. T. Mat-
hews, superintending civil engineer
of Area IV. and Vice Admiral B.
Moreel, chief of the Bureau of
The Naval Air Training Station
at Corpus Christi, largest in the
world, and its uuxfliary fieldi were

ments served by Central Power and

"Um-m-iti... there's MEAT FOR A WHOLE WEEK!"
Never a worry about spoilage! You’ll buy meat and other perishables by the week when you
have gas refrigeration, and any woman can tell you what that means! Gas refrigeration is the
modern, economical way. It’s silent... has no moving parts... nothing to wear out. It’s GOOD
to have GAS in your home!
NATURAL GAS PUTS DOLLARS IN YOUR POCKET
There would be no natural gas industry in this area today if it were not for the initiative and
enterprise of private firms like the United Gas Pipe Line Company and its associated produc-
ing and distributing companies. The United Companies built a complex network of pipe lines
to link wellheads with markets, released millions of pent-up dollars in payments to royalty
owners, taxes and payrolls. United Gas investments and operations benefit every family in
Texas, in one way or another.
THE NEW MODELS are rolling
off the production lines right
now. Keep in touch with your
local dealer and be among the
first to inspect the big, roomy
Servel. You’ll especially like the
storage space for froien food*,
and the just-right temperature
zones for meat and vegetables.
“Lucky us! We picked a Servel Gee Refrigerator. K
never makes a sound or causes trouble."
Like the Fred MacMurrays, you’ll
feel lucky if you choose a Servel.
Because, as more than 2,000,000
Servel owners have found, this
modern gas refrigerator is basically
NO MOVING PARTS
A Servel freezes with no moving
parts. Just a tiny gas flame keeps
its refrigerant circulating. So, there’s
nothing in the freexing system that
can make a noise. Nothing to wear
or need fixing, either.
Talk to your neighbors who’v*
enjoyed Servels ell through the war.
They’ll tell you their refrigerators
have never given a moment’s worry.
And they’ll advise you—change to
a silent, long-lasting Servel.
Here’s what’s next.
