Processed Foods In the crop year 1944-45, with. out the present moves, we woult face the prospect of running entirely out of many of these commodities in early spring. The only way everyone could possibly have a fair chance at their share was to return them to rationing. You ask why did we not do so before? The answer is that there were many different opinions as to the requirements of the war. Surpluses that were expected by some when the European war looked far more near its end, simply have not developed. To predict requirements or the course of the war, as we have sadly seen, Is just not always" possible. All of the authorities were wrong. Production suffered. We suffered. Butter Civilian butter stocks are at an all time low for the war period. There is not enough butter to get even a minimum stock in many stores in many parts of the coun- Behind Late Food Ration Change To bring home to the people facts about the food supply situation and to emphasize that ra tioning works not on the army and navy can only be kept going at their utmbst if adequate suplies of fresh meat are* avail j able. prlH oPA has been seMoUsly e6n* try, tral Except in the mid-west cen- agricultural states three- cerned with the mounting reports of Unequal distribution of whai remains for civilian consumption," For example, A and AA beef are reported short of scarce by 97 per cent of the district offices. Point free beef has rapidly gone up from scarcity in 37' per cent of the localities in mid-Septembei* to 68 per cent in December. Pork loins, hams and bacon are short or scarce in 80-90 per cent of the localities; With supplies as they are, only broader rationing Can bring a more suitable distribution. Sugar The difference between what eilyi.Last ,«<Mtfi raty ttefald eafrted a edition yoted td the 60 years "6f Its Metion, The first issue wfis pub*« Jan. 3 fi l8S8, with Vefhe S. fourths of the stores are out of butter more than half of the time Therefore there was no alternative but to place an even higher point value on butter in order to force down consumption until we have enough butter to build up stocks and share it equitable Meat Supplies of meat available will be somewhat less in the first quarter of 1945 than in the last quarter of 1944. A hard fighting civilians normally consumed, and what is/available in 1945 Is 1,300,000 tons. Causes for scarcity are obvious. Stocks are low, government needs will be higher, -shipping and man-power limit an ncrease in supply. On top,of this reduction in available sugar, we used in home Canning about 1,000,000 tons. Red ape was cut as much as possible 11 issuing these rations but the osult was greater use than had een planned by about 500,000 ons. Many old coupons and stamps or sugar that had been Issued ithout expiration date were still n existence,and coupons fa'r exceeded available sugar in stores. The only remedial move seemed to be cancellation of the unused stamps. After all, the people who had them did not need them or they would have used them. If they were left in existence, people with the current sugar stamp would not have been able to get the sugar. If the OPA had given mpre notice of cancellation, a run would have undone the very job of fair and equitable distribution which the OPA was trying to do. - -~ . „,. -.vw-w, ***!,** T«*1H3 «t ElUs, now of Benvef, Colo., as editor.

Less Meat, Canned Goods and Sugar For Civilians For a Time Every individual has a part to play in making rationing and price control effective, it was declared today by W. P. French, chairman of the local war price and rationing board, in a greeting to citizens of this community. "The every day cooperation of our citizens has made the OPA program work thus far, but in view of conditions which forced stricted rationing regulations to be announced within the last few day it is timely to urge everyone to become acquainted with the facts prompting such changes and to urge everyone to make a solemn resolution to abide strictly by the 'rules' until our government sees fit to declare the emergency has been met and passed. "Only three months ago we began to hope the European war might be ended very soon," Chairman French reminded. "Now victory seems farther away than most of us expected. The fighting has become costlier. More and more men and machines and material are being involved—and destroyed. "The army and navy will require approximately the same amount of food as used last year. It is quite likely there will be less meat, canned goods and sugar for civilians. But in spite of that, rationing will continue to apportion fair shares to all of us and price control will protect us agaist ruinous inflation and deflation." business meeting and short program lunch was served.
