Mrs. America
Meets the War
Individual preference will play a
great part in determining the
amount of ration of Mrs. Amer
ica's family under the new pro
gram for an equitable distribution
of meat, cheeses, canned fish end
edible fats and oils. The heavy
meat eaters, for example, can spend
as many points for this preferred
product out of the basic individual
allotment of 16 points weekly for
all items included in this rationing
program. But in doing so, of course,
the ration of other products un
der the program will be reduced
accordingly. And here's another
point. Because of abnormal meat
shortages in certain areas, do not
expect to find every kind and va
riety of meat available in the first
day or so of rationing, which be
gins March 29. It may take a few
weeks of the program to adjust
the situation. Rationing and the
future uniform dollars and cents
retail price ceilings assure Mrs,
America of a double-barreled blow
against the black market meat
with its attendant health dangers.
Look for new uniform dollars
and cents prices on rayon stock
ings after April 15. And here's
good news for Mrs. America to
whom rayon is the mainstay of
hosiery eeds, because OPA's new
uniform prices will reduce the cost
of stockings from five to 40 cents
a pair. This new price regulation
will be pegged to specific stan
dards, and hose will be graded ac-

cordingly. Certainly Mrs. America
should have no difficulty in deter
mining the local ceilings for the
regulation also provides that the
price be stamped on the welt of
the hose. In addition to price, the
grade and other information must
be indicated.
On the subject of hosiery prob
lems, "cosmetic stockings" should
be plentiful. No scarce ingredients
are needed for this cosmetic, which
is rather liek liquid powder with a
deeper coloring. Actually, when the
good old summer time comes
around, leg make-up is expected to
help stretch the hosiery supply
again.
"Wash day in wartime may mean
an introduction for some housewi
ves to the washboard. Jhe family
who does not possess a washing
machine certainly, will not see any
new ones being made for the tons
of critical materials formerly put in
to this equipment has been diverted
to war production. However, repair
parts for old machines are still be
ing made. But even the metal wash
board is a past number in house
hold gadgets. Only the smallest
amount of metal may be used in
wash boards. That's why Mrs. Am
erica will find two types especially
from which to choose. Boards with
glass scrubbing surfaces in wooden
frames provide one answer. The
other is an all-wood washboard
held together with wire. And don't
worry about splinters because this
model is made of hard wood which
should not wear down too readily.
Speaking of doing the family
laundry, don't be surprised if the
old-fashioned iron which is heated
on top of the stove re-enters Mrs.
America's household. For one thing,
the number of electric hand irons
left on the market is getting small
er and smaller, and none have been
made since last May. At the same
time the war production board is
allowing half the normal amount of
pig and scrap iron to go into the
production of. flat irons. Long ago
these were known as "sad" irons
not because of the work of pressing,
but because of an old Anglo-Saxon
word, "sad'' meaning heavy, which
was taken to describe the weight of
the iron.

Attention Victory Gardeners! If
you buy peas, beans and lentils for
use as seed, you will not be requir
ed to surrender either point stamps
or a ration certificate. Seed, marked
or labeled in accordance with any
applicable federal or state seed
law or in compliance with stand
ards stated in the federal law are
point free for this purpose. The
bulk of supplies of peas, beans or
lentils available as seed is said to
meet these requirements so it should
not be difficult for gardeners to
find planting supplies.
The war production board has
simplified the procedure for obtain
ing repair parts for electric ranges.
Here's what you do. No preference
rating is required. Just turn in the
old parts, or else certify that they
have been disposed of as selvage.
However, there has been no change
in requirements for obtaining an

SOLDIER'S ADDRESS NOT
ONE OF PERMANENCY
Fame time since the Gazette

RITCHIE OK WHEN LAST
HEARD FROM
Judge Bert Johnson states he is
in receipt of a letter from Larry
Ritchie who is with the fighting
forces "down under." Larry re
ported that he was feeling fine and
that if his friends have not heard
from him there is a good reason.
Much of the mail reaching the out
posts of the armed' forces is so water-soaked
that it is unreadable.
For this reason, he has not been
able to answer letters and sends
greetings to sll those who have
made the effort to communicate
with him.
IN GLIDER INFANTRY
Pvt Tench B. Aldrich who vol
unteered for induction with the
February group of selectees from
Morrow county, is now stationed
with the glider infantry in North
Carolina. Tench is about the same
distance from the Atlantic ocean
as he was from the Pacific when
he was a thome.

Pvt. "Tim" Lovgren is with the
U. S. Infantry in Virginia. Tim has
learned that all taxi drivers are
not cold-hearted, at least there is
electric range from a dealer. It is
necessary to submit a certification
of need. This states that the new
domestic electric range is needed
to replace one that is worn out or
damaged beyond repair. Or it may
point out that the stove is required
because no other cooking equip
ment is available and that all in
ternal wiring, as well as power lines
for the range service, are installed.
an understanding one in Virginia.
Returning from a short leave, Tim
fell asleep on a street car and when
he awoke found that he by-passed
his camp 10 miles. The conductor
advised him to get off the car and
wait for a taxi. In a few minutes
the taxi came along and sensing
the young soldier's predicament the
driver hailed him, stating that he
was going right to camp. In a short
time Tim was in camp with two
minutes to spare and the taxi dri
ver would not accept one penny
for the service.

From where I sit . . .
htf Joe Marsh
Sara Abcrnethy always said:
"Curiosity may kill a cat - but
I'm no cat." Which is Sam's way
of saying that when he's curious
about something he goes out
and gets the facts.
Seems our government feels
the same way. After hearing ru
mors about our soldiers drink
ing too much -government peo
ple went after the facts. They
got the evidence on what our
boys drink . . . and don't drink.
The government found out
our Army's the best behaved in
history. More'n half of 'em drink
beer nothing stronger. And the
government found that selling
3.2 beer in Army camps is ona
reason why our Army is so tem
perate. From where I sit, there isn't
much cause to worry about our
men in the Army. Looks like
they can take care o' themselves
-and take care o' the Nazis and
the Japs, too.
