Fuel Oil Rations Short
There have been widespread indications that many households have dipped too heavily into their fuel oil rations. There was a tendency during the fall months to let down. All of us felt the war was nearly over. But now, with full fledged operations under way in both the Pacific and Europe, the armed services are using more oil than ever before. Up to this date householders in this area should not have used more that 47 per cent of their fuel oil ration.
Radar Course Begun At Marshfield, Wednesday.
Five Abbotsford high school seniors are taking a course in radar fundamentals at Marshfield. This 10 week course is being offered to high school seniors who are 17 years old as a preparation to passing the Eddy test when they are inducted in the service. If this test is passed successfully, they will automatically be accepted in the Navy.
In the course, seven weeks are devoted to radar mathematics and physics and three weeks to radio. A tuition fee of $15 is required of each student and for the present class at Marshfield. This expense is being met by the Elk’s lodge of Marshfield.
Abbotsford seniors who have been enrolled are John Bitter, John Kadonsky, Bob Lundahl, Jim Nikolay and Harvey Olson. They had their first class Wednesday night and hereafter will meet every Monday and Wednesday night from 7 to 9 in the vocational department of the Purdy junior high school.
