It a retailer's maximum prices are annormally low ne may petition OPA for Individual relief. OPA la commltteed to the principle: "Retail prices will not be Increased . . . the celling will not be punctured." How then could relief be provided? By what Is known as a "rollback." That Is, by obtaining ad- lustments nf whnleanln and manufacturers' prices, rather than by raising retail prices. Will quality of articles have to remain at March levels? That is the Intent of the regulation. There is doubt of the government's ability to police the quality o! the merchandise. The other countries, reduction of quality has been the big loophole In price regulation. HEALTH Btlghth District: Republicans— Charles B. Hoeven, Alton; George If. Kephart, Slou* City; David V.

Not unless a store was charging f6r delivery of similar types of commodities during March. What about new lines that were not curried. In March? Celling prices on new linen will bv the highest prices charged during March by the most closely competitive store ut the same class tor the tume commodity or (or the commodity most nearly like it. How will customers know the maximum March price ou auy article? Retailers are required to murk the prices of the most t-ommuuly purchased items ou those UCIIIK or on the bins shelves, racks or containers. Or they can post u price list somewhere in the store. The designation is to be "Ceiliug Price $ ," or "Our Ceiliug $ Beginning June 1 merchants must flia uiuuliiiy sUieiueuis allowing the Maximum price (or each commodity and a description and identification of It.

Juice from well ripened fruit may be used in place of part or all of the sugar syrup. In spite of sugar rationing the Government Is encouraging thu hom« canning of more fruit to im- nrovi« family diet* and health, and to help relieve the country's wartime transportation loan. Home economists of the U. S. Department of Agriculture suggest ways to stretch sugar In canning. Can more fruit and preserve less s the first rule. Canning fruit or lulcc requires less sugar than making jellies, JUIMH, marmalades and ^reserves. Fruit or fruit julco may l)e canned successfully with llttlo or no sweetening. Canned fruit will keep safely If tars are packed with fruit and then rilled with fruit Juice instead of the usual sugar-syrup. Canned Crult may he sweetened later when served. The sweeter juicier fruits like sweet cherries and peaches are best for putting up in their own Juice. Fruit may also be canned with just enough sugar-syrup in each jar to give a slightly sweet flavor and the test ot the space filled with juice. Cook fruit in an open kettle to draw out the juice, and then pack hot and cover with hot juice. Fruit juice may be bottled or put up in jars with little or no sugar. No extra sweetening Is needed If the Juices of sweet and tart fruits uro mixed and bottled together. Fruit for juice Is processed at simmering rather than boiling to hold the natural "fresh fruit flavor and culur. Mild-flavored syrups like honey or corn syrup may also be used in canning fruit. Honey or corn syrup may he substituted for as muchc as half the sugar in canning, hut a larger proportion of syrup will mask Ihe delicate Iruit flavor — as will a syrup with u distinctive flavor, such as maple, surKhum, or molasses. Satehuriiie. u coal tar product with u very swctt tasie, cannot be used in cunning bucuu^n It liBc.omes hitter when heated, hut in diabetic riu-tb it muy he used to canned or bottled juicus after they are opened.

Iowa "swlmming-d r * w n 1 a g " deaths, after declining from 43 in 1988 to 25 in 1940, Increased to 50 last year, department statistics show. "the 'klda' can put up some good arguments as to what good swimmers they are and how sate they are in the water, but the tragic truth is that no matter what they say, they should have lifeguard protection when swimming," the department said. Fifty-eight of the deaths last year occurred In areas totally or partially lacking In supervision while only one took place In a supervised area, according to the department. Iti addition to these deaths, there were 31 other drowning fatalities inei y«Af. C'.a^iilSti AS AOGMfiuUl deaths, these drowntngs raised the 1941 total to 90.
