As spring comes on and tho roads
Improve, tho automobile owner will
get out bis car. Before ha tunes It
up for tlw first long Sunday tour with
his family, It would bo well at this
tlmo for him to relied that every
gallon of gaaollno ho uses will mean
that a gallon of gaaollno cannot be
used for a motor truck hauling provis
ions nnd munitions to tho front for
tho fighting men In France
It may muml trivial to say this,
but when ono pauses to reflect that
there nro rnoro than 3,000,000 plcas
uro cars In uho In America and that
each can burn from three to six
gallons of the precious fluid every
Sunday that an outing la taken In
tho car, ono readily can seo that such
an outing mmm that tho already
scant supply has been made Bhorlor by
several millions of gallons. With tha
supply dwruased and tho Uovern
munt In tho market as a heavy buyer
to HUpply thu thousands of motor
trunks It Is shipping to Franco tot
llio army, tho prion will rl and the
(lovernnient will bo at a greater ex
pense to conduct Its military opera
tions. "Am every ono familiar with tha
war snunuon knows," nald an army
man recently, "gasoline Is one of tho
big factora In the great struggle. Its
Importance In thu ultltnato winning
of tho war Is vory great. It propels
submarines, Hying machines and motor
miens ami anibulunces. Tho United
HIhIus Is tho great producer of this
by product of petroleum, nnd nil we
van produeu Is needed by us to hnston
it victorious conclusion of tho war.
"It seems to inn that tho owners
of phsiHiiru turs ran effect a groat

Hhnrt trips and not too many of thtm

BONHAM & CURRIER
JUST A WORD IN YOUR EAR
Housewife of St. Johns
Probably you have already heard of the GREATER PORTLAND ASSOCIATION.
You may have read some of its advertising, or have noticed the sign in a shop window.
Haven't you wondered a bit as to its purpose, felt a little mild curiosity as to what
its name meant? Why the "Greater Portland?"
If so, you will be glad to learn all about the Association, what a big organization it
is, what it means to you personally, how it affects your buying, and what supporting it
may mean to your neighborhood.
Next Monday two well informed women representatives of the Association will be
gin house to house work in your community, and we bespeak for them courteous, fair
hearing. They have nothing to sell, and will not spend much time at any one home, but
they will tell the housewives why the Greater Portland Association was founded, whom
it represents, and what its purposes are. As intelligent women you want to be inform
ed on civic affairs it's part of your education in these modern days.
Let this Sign be
If we have any members
who arc unreliable, we want

We ask also the co-operation of the mer
chants of St. Johns. You are very vitally
interested in this movement, and can fur
ther it greatly by "boosting" for it, and
particularly during the weeks when our rep
resentatives are visiting your customers.
