Farmers Urged to Increase Poultry Production in '45 Increasing the country's poultry production is being-urgently asked by the War Food Admin istration and it is hoped farmers will raise -a second flock after the first one is out of the way to help fill in on the meat shortage which is expected this summer and fall. It is estimated that curren chicken meat production this year will amount to about 3,200,000,000 pounds and out of thai amount must come 670,000,000 pounds for the armed forces anc export needs. WFA estimates that last year civilians ate 24 pounds of chicken meat per capita. This year they will eat 20 pounds per capita, but they could eat 35 to 40 to help fill in the shortage of red meat. However, WFA Administrator Marvin Jones urges farmers to sell .all they can spare of spring raised chickens, saving only enough to maintan laying flocks at the 1944 level.

Press Statement of Gas Supplies Should Not Be Taken Seriously It has 'been stated in the press •ecently that after the end of the European war there would be additional gasoline available for civ- lian use in an amount estimatec it between 100,000 and 200,000 barrels per day, Wen French ocal ration board chairman, saic oday. Some idea as to what this would amount to in the way o relief to the rationing program can be gained by comparing the. figure with our current second quarter allocation of 1,276,000 bar- •els per day. He said it had also been statec n some papers that civilian passenger car allotments of gasoline could be increased 50 per cent b> the allocation of this additiona 100,000 to 200,000 barrels pel day. This is obviously too high when it is considered that the sresent allocation for passengei cars is 576,000 ibarrels per day, OPA to Ration The function of the OPA anc ts local boards is to ration the imount of a product which is 'al- otted' >by the supply agency. II therefore becomes the OPA responsibility, if and when the Pu- roleum Administration for War ays that additional amounts ol gasoline are available for civi- ians to change the rationing rogu- FWmer Wesley Folks Buy Home In Algona Wesley: Mrs. Helena Huber spent several days last week at he Lawrence Wingert home.

Notice of Probate of Will STATE OF IOWA, KOSSUTH COUNTY, ss. IN DISTRICT COURT No. 5295 March Term, 1945 To All Whom It May Concern: You Are Hereby Notified, That an instrument of writing purporting to be the last Will and Testament of Mirriam M. Habeger, Deceased, dated February 21, 1938, having been this day filed, opened and read, Tuesday the 8th day of May, 1945, is fixed for hearing proof of same at the Court House in Algona, Iowa, before the District Court of said County, or the Clerk of said court; and at ten o'clock A. M., of the' day above mentioned all persons interested are hereby notified and required to appear, an,d show cause, if any they have, why said instrument should not be probated and allowed as and for the last Will and Testament of said deceased. Dated at Algona, Iowa, April 24, 1945. HELEN WHITE, Clerk of District Court. Alma Pearson, Deputy. Quarton & Miller, Attys, Algona, Iowa.' . * 17 lations so as to insure this amount being distributed to the public. Because of the uncertainties in the actual amount of additional gasoline that will 'be available after V-E Day and also because of the uncertainty of the actual date of V-E Day, the National Office is not in any position to make a positive commitment as to just how an extra amount of gasoline will be apportioned 10 the public. The three types of gasoline consumers who have been most restricted by the rationing have been (1) those per- sans who hold "A" books only, (2) those persons whose occupational activities have been restricted by the "B" ceiling, and (3) some transport operators, primarily those who are limited by ODT's Frequency Delivery Orders. Two Miles Per Day If PAW gives us an extra allocation of 100,000 to 2000,000 barrels per day, these three classes will receive first consideration. It must be borne in mind, however, because of the very great number of "A" books in circulation, that it takes a considerably greater amount of gasoline to give relief to these individuals in any substantial amount than it does to give relief in the other two classes. For this reason, even if PAW were to allot us an additionll 200,000 B-D of gasoline, the bonus to "A" book holders would probably not be greater than an equivalent of two miles per day. : ^, One thing must 'be remembered —all gasoline that is made available for civilian use will be promptly passed on in the form of rations by changes in our regulations. Until such time however, as this extra gasoline is given to us, we are under complete obligation to live within the current quota given to us by PAW. Unless boards adhere strictly to the regulations and avoid a generosity resulting from public over optimism, it is likely that we will find ourselves in a dangerous supply situation with respect to our reserve stocks. Your cooperation in rationing strictly in accordance with the regulations as they may be changed from time to time to reflect changes in our allocations, will be a distinct contribution to the war effort.
