50 Years Ago:

* Everybody's extra automobile tires over five must be turned in to a Railway Express Office by Nov. 22. The federal government will place a value on the tires and make payment either in war stamps or cash as the individual prefers. The Sun, Nov. 2, 1942.

* Because of the shortage of men, women are being given the opportunity to drive buses by the Arundel Bus Company. They wear slacks and are minus the usual bus driver's cap and they must be over 21. The Sun, Nov. 4, 1942.

* The war and a rapidly increasing population in Anne Arundel County is creating serious problems especially in the Curtis Bay section and at Camp Meade. Housing is at a premium and often severely inadequate. County welfare leaders are especially concerned about the effect on the children. The Sun, Nov. 26, 1942.
