Meets the War
'Ten to two' doesn't refer to the
hours your doctor keeps but to the
time period recommended by the
Office of Defense Transportation
for Mrs. America's shopping hours.
In this way the ODT said house
wives will leave room for essential
workers who must travel during
peak periods. Public transit facili
ties of course, are jammed with
millions of additional workers. So
when Mrs. America marches out
for Easter shopping, she is asked to
key her shopping hours to the four
hour period from 10 in the morn
ing to 2 in the afternoon.
Food rationing is inspiring more
housewives to thoughts of canning
fruits and vegetables than in many
years, and to those who are plan
ning to put up victory garden pro
ducts, here's a word of cheer from
the War Production board. The
WPB has been expecting a record
breaking home canning season and
so has taken action to see that there
are plenty of glass jars, rubber
rings and covers for sealing the
jars. Zinc lids are banned, however,
a recent WPB order released enough
metal to permit manufacture of al
most all types of closures. And
twice as many pressure cookers
will be made this year. The WPB
pointed out that, however, the in
crease will not be enough to take
care of the increased demand. But
producion is limited because of the
direct war need for the critical
steel going into manufacture.
Women war workers are particu
lar in their protection of the skin
you love to touch' for reports are
that lotions are in great demand for
hand care. Of course, glycerine
which formerly went into lotions
now is being replaced by less criti
cal skin softeners. Women working
in munitions plants are taking ex
tra caution in the care of their skin
by using special 'insulation' creams.
These products, which are similar
to powder bases, prevent the im
bedding of grime in the skin. An
other cosmetic item which women
doing hard physical work count as
important are deodorants. These
products, by the way are not suf
fering from any shortage of ingre
dients. Housewives who buy butter or
cheese from the milkman may pay
necessary ration points in advance.
So if you decide on Monday that
ycu wish a pound of butter deliv
ered the following Thursday just
turn over eight points to the milk
man for future delivery.
Can openers which Mrs America
will find on the market may be lim
ited in the amount of metal al
lowed, but at, least they shouldn't
be scarce. The WPB has allowed
the production quota for civilian
uses to be upped from 35 to 50 per
cent of the amount manufactured
in the year ending June 30, 1941.
But no more than 12 ounces of
metal may be used in each can
Red A stamps in war ration book
two will be valid for purchases un
der the meats and fats program un
til April 30. During the month of
April a new red point stamp be
comes valid each week to expire on
the same date, April 30. The red B
stamp matured April 4, the C's on
April 11, and the D red stamps on
April 18, and together with the red
A's, they all will be good until
April 30. That provides each hold
er of war ration book two with 16
basic points per week for the pur
chase of meats, cheese, canned fish
and edible fats and oils.
The sweater girl of 1943 may

New uniform prices have been set
for all pork cuts sold at retail, and
that means the housewife will find
the price the same in every store,
depending upon its classification.
Every retailer must have posted
prominently a chart showing the of

housewives are urged to report to
local war price and rationing boards
or the OPA any instances of over
charging. The new regulation set
ting uniform dollars and cents ceil

How to Shop for Meats and Fats
with Red Stamps
Shopping with your red point stamps will be easy if you remember t few
You already have War Ration Book Two; you need not register again or
declare how much of these foods you have on hand. But when rationing begins
1. Red Stamps may be used for any of the foods rationed in the Meats and.
Fats Program. The same -stamps arc valid for meat, chew, butter,
canned fish, margarine, etc
2. The point value of each item is set on a pound basis. But the amount
of any food your points can buy will depend on whether the item you
choose has a high or low point value.
How to Shop
Here is the way your Red Stamps become good during the month of April:
Week Beginning Hii Stamps Bearing Unit Stamps Expirt
March 29 A (16 points) April 30
April 4 B (16 points April 30
April 11 C (16 points) April 30
April 18 D (16 points) April 30
April 2 E (16 points) To bt announced)
1. First study the "point values" of the
foods you buy most often. To help you,
you'll find a "Point Value Table" hung up
in your food store. Or, better yet, you can
clip a meats and fats "Point Table" from
your newspaper and keep it handy,
2. Take War Ration Book Two with you
when you shop for meats, cheese, or any of
the other items, just as you do now when
you buy canned, frozen or dried fruits, and
vegetables. Tear the Red Stamps out in the
presence of your storekeeper or his delivery
3. If you find you do not have the exact
amount of valid Red Stamps to give for a
purchase, your storekeeper can give you your
change in "1-point" stamps. For example,
if you must give him a 5-point stamp to pay
for a 4-point purchase, he can give you a
1-point stamp as change. But he cannot use
the 2-, J-, or 8-point stamps as change.
Make sure, however, that the "1-point"
(tamp has a letter on it which is valid at the
time you receive it.
4. Your storekeeper cannot always ca. '
meat or cheese to the exact pound weight
you wish. That means you must know how
many points you should pay for ounces, too.
A special table has been provided oa the
Official Table of Consumer Point Values for
just such cases. This table breaks the point
values per pound down into ounces. If 009
of your purchases has an ounce value of less
than half a point you do not have to pay an
additional point. But if it is one-half point
or more, your retailer can collect a full point.
J. Budget your points. SpenA Red
Stamps carefully. Make thera last for the
entire ration period. When you receive
"1-point" Red Stamps as change, use then)
the next time you shop, if possible, and be
sure that they don't expire unused.
6. Remember, you still use. the Blue
Stamps for processed foods and stamps from
War Ration Book One for sugar and coffee.
No change can be made in Blue Stamps.
