pressure cookers will want to make
the best use of them. For those who
wish to buy pressure cookers, the
suggestions are made that they buy
cooperatively so that four or five
families can use the one piece of
equipment. All methods of canning
will be demonstrated at the meet
ings. Because of sugar rationing and
shortage of equipment, increased in
terest is apparent in the drying of
fruits and vegetables. A model of
a homemade dehydrator will be
shown at the demonstration and di
rections for making it will be dis
tributed:, as well as directions for
drying and various methods of home
food preservation.
Cold storage lockers can be used
more efficiently. Shelves can be
built in them. More vegetables and
fruit can be frozen in them. Con
tainers may be of glass or locker
waxed paper. When no pressure
cooker is available, the frozen pack
is of special interest in preserving
vegetables, meat and fish.
The demonstration will include the
safe and practical methods of can
ning and freezing.

tween May and June by 1,700,000
persons to 53,300,000.
The House passed and sent to the
Senate a bill authorizing the Census
Bureau to issue birth certificates
based on its vital statistics to ped
sons unable to obtain them through
normal channels. The 54,000,000
persons in the country whose births
are not recorded could obtain a cer
tificate upon making a sworn appli
cation to a postmaster (or his sub
ordinate) , which would be forwarded
to the bureau to be checked. After
"verification of the application a
birth certificate would be issued so
the persons could work in war pro
duction plants and receive old age
pension benefits.
The OPA announced that East
coast motorists in localities served
by subways, elevated or suburban
railroads would be denied supple
mentary gasoline rations unless
they can establish that such trans
portation facilities are inadequate
for their needs. The new regulations
would apply to all motorists, in
cluding those who help form car
sharing clubs. WPB Chairman Nel
son said after July 22, when the
new rationing system goes into ef
fect in the East, gasoline deliveries
to stations in the area will be based
upon coupons taken in by each sta
tion. The WPB announced estab
lishment of a "buffer zone" in 162
counties adjacent to the western
boundaries of th East coast ration
area, in which deliveries of gasoline
to filling stations will be cut by 25
percent beginning July 22.
The WPB reported 2,736 trucks,
truck trailers and miscellaneous ve
hicles were released to civilians and
to holders of government exemption
permits during the week ended July
11. Since March 9, when the ra
tioning program became effective
almost 52,000 vehicles in all cate
gories have been released to these
two groups. The OPA authorized
local War Price and Rationing
boards to permit use of any reas
onable amount of sugar for home
canning, providing four quarts of
fruit will be canned with each
pound of sugar.

stroyed. The U. S. Carrier Yorktown
was put out of action and the de
stroyer Hamann was torpedoed and

tion against enemy submarines in
this area apparently are proving
very effective" and anti-aircraft
warning systems are greatly im
proved in the Panama Canal Zone.
The Navy announced the sinking of
20 more United Nations merchant
vessels by enemy submarines.
Foreign Relations
President Roosevelt formally pro
claimed a state of war with Hungary,
Rumania and Bulgaria, making na
tionals of those countries residing in
the U. S. subject to regulations gov
erning enemy aliens. The President
announced lend-lease war aid ex
tended by the U. S. from March 11,
1941 when the program began to

million of which the June total was
$708 million, highest monthly total

The State Department said the U.

creasing number of small boats,
mainly fishing vessels, are being
taken over by the Navy, and crews
are being trained as fast as possible

President Roosevelt early this year.
He said July shipbuilding figures in
dicate the nation is 2,000,000 tons
