Hoarding Leads Not
To Good Citizenship
Hoarding not only violates the
tenets of good citizsnship but it can
very easily lead to serious conse
quences for the hoarder, according
to an announcement received today
from the war price and rationing
board, Office of Price Administra
tion. The communication warned that
excess stocks of rationed goods
would have to be declared and the
equivalent numbsr of stamps sur
rendered at registration time, and
tated that severe penalties await
those who fail to comply.
But, such penalties will be mean
ingless if, through hoarding, sup
plies are withheld at this time from
our boys in the armed forces, the
article stated. The department of
agriculture has issued a statement
showing the percentages of Ameri
ca's food that must be diverted from
civilian use under the rationing to
meet military and lend- lease re
quirements. About 50 per cent of
all canned and dried fruits and
vegetables must be diverted from
civilian use for the military.
When these reasons for rationing
are understood by the buying pub
lic, it is asserted, the urge to hoard
will gradually disappear and good
citizenship will prevail.
