A Fire Department Enjoy Supper : Members 'of the Beach volunteer fire dpartment with a few invited guests, enjoyed a roast pig s~r~per last Thursday evening, following their regular monthly meeting.

James R. Carlson arrived from San De Leandrc, California Satur- day to visit his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Carlson before leav- ing for service. ON TOP AGAIN FIRE PREVENTION WEEK For many year~ fire and insurance authorities have done their best in the ahnual Fire Preventlcm Week to per- suade the public to take the precauttons that prevent fires. The anniversary of the great Chicago fire, Octo- ber 8-11, 1871, reminds us all of what can happen when fire gets beyond control. Accumulati0~ of inflam- mable waste, overheated, fur- naces and stoves, poorly pro- tectecl smoke pipes, and spontaneous combustion are four of the most common causes. The firemen tell us to avoid these hazards. It is far easier to watch out carefully for the causes of fire than to make up for the losses that fire will bring. The Beach volunteer fire department asks the coopera- tion of every citizen and property holder in making their homes and business places safe from fire.

Pul n Company Has Tremendous Wartime Task Taking all of Golden Valley county s'- 3,500 people around the world in sleeping ears more than 238 times would be a tremendous understaklng, yet that is actually about the size of the troop move- ment job reported by the Pullman Company. Since Pearl Harbor, Pullman has carried about 14,000,000 troops a distance of more than 15 billion passenger miles in Its sleeping ~-_ cars, the company reports. These figures are said to cover mass mili- tary movements alone, and do not include the heavy travel of fur- loughed men and others. Many of the boys from Golden Valley county, like servicemen from all parts of the country, are getting their first Pullman rides, according to George A. Kelly, vice president of the company. Now most of them are making six or seven trips by Pullman, as tim intense train ing program of the armed services necessitates that many moves or more prior to embarkation for points abroad, he said. In addition the Army and Navy believe in all the comfort possible for the mem- bers of the armed forces, he de- clared, and about two thirds of all military movements by raft ar~ by Pullman sleeper. Pullman is now carrying more than 800,000 troops every month In mass movements, it is revealed by Mr. Kelly, who pointed out th~ in addition to this heavy and ~steadlly increasing military passen- ger burden, civilian travel itself ls also at a record-breaking level. He believes that Pullman's passen- ger mile volume for 1943 may ex- ceed the 1942 all-tinge high of 19 billion by 30'or more percent. "The military and civilian l~S- senger burden of Pullman and the railroads today is so heavy," KeIly said, "*that there is unfortunately little margin left for some of the conveniences travelers enjoyed in peacetime. Service today is war- time service, and by their under- standing and tolerane~ of this fact, travelers can help us greatly in the performance of our vltal Job." NAMES IN THE FI~8 C.
