Concentrated soups still require
ration points although the OPA
has removed rationing restrictions
from ready-to-serve soups. And.
here's why. Because of government
restrictions on the use of tin, only
concentrated soups can be packed
by manufacturers. So in order to
move the canned ready-to-serve
soups, which are out for the dura
tion, the OPA made this type point
free. Incidentally, canned sauer
kraut is another civilian war cas
ualtyno more for the duration
except for military uses.
With sales of used household
goods increasing now that manu
facturers are turning out war ma
terials instead of furnishings for
Mrs. America's home, here's a re
minder. Secondhand goods are cov
ered by price ceilings to' protect
shoppers from boing overcharged
because of a great demand for mer
chandise. A seller of used house
hold goods cannot ask more than
three-fourths of the ceiling price
on the brand new item if it is in
"good condition" that is, if it is
reasonable, clean and can be used
without any further repair at the
time of sale. However, if any re
pair or parts are needed before
the article can be used, the second
hand merchandise can be sold for
only one-third of the new price.

Santa Claus what
his favorite charity Is,
but we'd bet the old fel
low would chuckle:
"Why, Christmas Seals,
of course I"
You see, these little
Seals give the greatest
gift of all health, life it
self. As long as Santa can
remember, the American
people have made this a
part of their Christmas
giving in depression
and prosperity, in peace
time and war.
This vear our needs are
doubly' great because a
wartime rise in tubercu
losis must be prevented.
So, make sure that every
letter and package car
ried by Santa is stamped
with your Christmas gift
