mportance of Dairy Month Explained Dairy Month'is of extreme im- hance to you. Jairy Month has a great job to (Celling dairy 'products when Res are normal. Dairj^Month has [even greater job this year when ne dairy products are plentiful others scarce. . Dairy Month's theme in this, the Jonversion year, is short and to point, it is: |Pirst in Foods." /e all know that Dairy Month Is inaugurated in 1037 to enlarge greater use of dairy pro- Its in the earl ysummer months Icn milk, butter, cheese, and ice lam were abundant. We all pw how precious these dairy els -were to our fighting men •ing the war. You have all seen fiusiastic letter from boys over- Is) telling about that delicious * of ice cream. G. I.'s Called For Milk. ifou all have heard about the {fit thing most of the boys did n they arrived -back in the es. They were handed a bottle lilk. They drank it in wonder then vociferously demanded fther, and often times, still an" 1 '' "'"' fJiey knew the value of those 'ious dairy foods. They still do. |y wanted them then, they pt them now. fiey can get all the milk, ice .|'m and cottage cheese they iit almost everywhere, .'but they I't get the butter they want and can't get all the cheese they it cither. Everybody asks—why? |art of the answer lies in the pin-g of different dairy products. OPA long ago placed ceiling Bes on butter, but placed more |he cream from which butter is 3e. The result was what you lild naturally expect. When rsgw-ives demanded cream, they cream. They paid more for it ,the buttermakers could af- to pay, tut they got it. That fint that the buttermakers did- got all they needed, because af- iill there is only so much cream |00 pounds ofimilk. faybe you ate some of your [ter today—in whipped cream Sop of that dessert, or in one of hundreds of other ways that scwives have^ of using good, k cream. If you did. that means ht of butter you won't get later. you ask? list because there isn't enough k in the national milk pail to Vround. Production this year far 'below last year's record Auction which was spurred by demands of wartime. But it ks the control of wartime ra- tioning, and the distribution is lopsided. This will change, in time, but it won't change fast enough to increase butter and cheese supplies this summer, Normal Routine Upset. Normally the nation's dairy in^ dustry is literally flooded with milk during Dairy Month. There is usually so much milk on hand that every possible device is used to avoid spoilage, Huge quantities of milk are normally made into butter during June and released on the market in later months when production has fallen off to a considerable extent. Huge quantities also are made into cheese. This year, a great amount of cheese probably will 'be made again. After a suitable time for aging and refilling the channels of distribution again, you'll probably have more cheese. Whether you get all you want depends on a lot of intangibles, 'but the prospects are bright that you will have more next winter than you had last. A lot of butter factories, which ordinarily would be very busy now, are idle. The cream they need is pouring into other outlets. You will get more butter eventually, but right now 1 it is impossible to say when. Last winter's shortage of cheese and butter are partially explained by the fact that in last summer's flush production period, the government took huge quantities—up to 60 per cent—of the butter and cheese on set aside orders which automatically reserved so much of the make for government uses. Why Butter Was Scarce. The war ended suddenly shortly after the flush season had passed with the result that the big backlog of summer made butter and cheese, on which industry normally depends for winter supplies, was already in the hands of the government and largely had disappeared, so far as civilian markets were concerned. Some butter was turned back into civilian consumption channels by the government, .but the total so returned was only a drop in the bucket when the size of the demand is considered. Everybody is demanding dairy foods—butter, milk, cheese, and ice cream. People are realizing more and more each day that dairy foods are healthful foods. The nations which 'are heavy consumers of dairy foods, with the consumption of an equivalent to 350 quarts of -milk annually per capita, , have life expectancy at birth of 60 years or more. In India where al- COW COMFORT DURING MILKING * BIG DIVIDENDS * «»//*/ "•• u> , (Milk "let-down" must be main- [jtained throughout the milking period. Cow comfort is important.

Milk Combats Pcllaga. Milk apparently has done much to combat pellagra, the disease which follows in the wake ol lopsided diets, particularly diets which concentrate on the same foods day after day. The armed forces fed our men four times as much milk in the garrison diet as the men in World War I were fed. When people have plenty of money, they demand the best in foods, and that means plenty of dairy foods. Soihe day, Dairy Month will come around again and there will be plenty of dairy products lor sale again and when that day comes Dairy Month will promote these dairy 'foods to the limit. But right now, all we can say is, get all the milk, ice cream", and cottage cheese you want, but don't expect plenty of butter or cheese yet for a while. Remember, there just isn't enough milk in the national milk pail today to meet all your demands.' You can't have all the cream you want now and expec f all the butter you want later. MORE POW UNITS SLATED TO MOVE Matt St/reit,'project manager of the Algona prison camp, in charge of surplus .property disposal for i the Federal Land Bank of Omaha, was in Omaha yesterday and today making arrangements for the official turnover of the camp to that unit.
