Meets the War
Uniform ceiling prices on beef,
veal and lamb, which become ef
fective on April 15, place in Mrs.
America's hands one of the most
effective weapons to combat black
markets in meat. Official OPA
price ceilings will be posted in ev
ery store and at every counter
where meat is sold, and housewives
can be certain they are not over
charged for these are specific cents
per pound retail ceilings. Pork
prices were brought under uniform
prices on April first. Previous to
the uniform pricing it was difficult
for a shopper to be certain whether
her butcher was overcharging her
because ceilings varied from store
to store on the basis of the' indi
vidual's top price for a base period.
Now uniform ceilings make it pos
sible for a housewife to know what
the maximum price should be, and
although her dealer can charge her
less, he cannot demand more than
the legal ceilings. Housewives are
urged to report any overcharges to
their local war price and rationing
If this spring your fancy turns
to thoughts of a new electric or
gas-operated refrigerator, you may
be able to obtain one if you really
need it. A WPB order will release
148,847 of these models to homes
which cannot be served by other
types of refrigerators. It will be
necessary to fill out a government
form obtainable from the dealer as
a part of the transaction. A pur
chaser must attest that the domestic
mechanical refrigerator is needed
since she has no other one nor is
any other usable refrigeration
drying ingredient in nail enamel,
now is used as explosives. How
ever, there's little change in the
nail polishes except for a little
more time for drying. Although the
color variety has been slightly cur
tailed, there is still sufficient range
of choice. However, there may be a
reduction in color selections of nail
polish as more dyes are required
for war uses.
Here's good news if you invested
your number 17 stamp in a" pair of
shoes which proved to be' defective
due to workmanship or material.
Local boards now may issue special
shoe stamps to replace defective
shoes in the light of certain condi
tions. A signed statement is re
quired from the shop where the
shoes were bought stating that the
shpes are defective because of
either workmanship or materials
and cannot be reasonably repaired.
Furthermore, the shoes must have
been returned to the dealer within
30 days of purchase with ration
currency. But there's nothing the
board can do if footwear is not
satisfactory because of improper
An appeal to Mrs. America's
family has been issued by the de
partment of agriculture not to be
wasteful in the use of eggs, live
baby chicks or ducklings during the
nation's second wartime Easter.
Ordinarily several million chicks
and ducklings araf sold at Easter
time, but many of these are lost
because tots seldom give them the
proper care. This year these chicks
and ducklings will help provide
food if , they are allowed to reach
maturity. And probably the Easter
bunny will be sparing with dyed
eggs this year. Already the tradi
tional Easter egg rolling on the

When your husband, or sweetheart is
"over there," wishing and dreaming
won't bring him back. The best way to
assure his quick return is to buy War
Bonds . . . put your dollars in the fight
for freedom. Doesn't it mean more to
you to see him safely home than many
small luxuries? ..Economize on them,
and send your dollars to the front.
