catsup, and chili sauce. Food point
values will be set up in such a way
that most items remaining under
rationing will be worth 10, 20, or
30 points, enabling housewives to
use their 10 point blue stamps with

points to keep in mind are these

would pay today for a pair of $6

But here in America we have price
control and it’s up to us to keep
it working. Check your ceiling
