May Try New Restrictions On Gas Buying Curfew Fails To Achieve Its Purpose NEW YORK Gasoline stations from Maine to Florida compiled generally with the gov- ernment's 7 p. m. to 7 a. m. curfew program in its first but so little fuel was conserved that there was talk today of the possibility of or rationing. Night sales of gasoline were sus- pended voluntarily by eastern sea- board dealers last night at the re- quest of Secretary of Interior Harold L. oil but motorists generally stocked up before the curfew started. In Boston William general manager of the Automobile Legal said It probably would necessary to proclaim gasless Sundays after Labor in New England. Many of the six- state area's filling stations reported greatly increased sales over the week-end. If rationing becomes Thibodeau proposed that It be de- layed until after the vacation sea- son. To avert officials of the New England Gasoline Deal- ers association called a meeting to plan of the volun- tary conservation program more effective. The curfew applies only to east- ern where transportation difficulties arising from national defense and British aid threaten to cause an acute shortage of petro- leum products. Only scattered stations In the af- fected area remained open after 7 p. m. yesterday. But motorists bought so heavily before the dos- ing hour that filling stations re- ported sales Increased from 10 to 50 per cent over last Sunday. Dealers pointed out thnt the first day was not a fair test of the curfew. It was a clear Sun- day which brought out thousands of motorists. Dealers said their usual order was 'em In- stead of the customary request for five or worth. Some believed the voluntary cur- few would be succeeded by com- pulsory perhaps after Labor day. A few service stations remained open to supply commercial vehi- taxicabs and automobiles In emergency all of which were exempted by Ickes. There was no official enforce- ment of the curfew. Police point- ed out that It had been requested on a voluntary basis and there was no law requiring It.
