To expedite the processing of Loco/ Officials Act To Prevent Sale Of Milk From (/nopproved Sources (Continued from t*c« 1) ernl months but It Is our opinion that these examinations would be of little value in view of the numerous deficiencies in proper equipment and cleanliness that were observed on the producer farms and in the pasteurising planl. Regardless of the results of any bac- leriologlcal examinations, the milk would not be acceptable because of Ihe many Insanitary conditions under which It Is produced or processed. This survey was made to determine the acceptability of this milk under the provisions of the milk frdinnncc of the City of Blythevlltc and we have found It dcflcienl In many ways. We believe that Its sale In Blytheville Is a violation of the provisions of thu ordinance and that It can not be considered a safe milk for human consumption Your responsibility for Die protection of the health of (he citizens of Blytheville requires that every effort be made to permit only a safe and clean milk to be sold In that city and the sale of any milk not considered safe should be immediately discontinued by appropriate measures. We transmit tliesc data and opinions lo you for your consideration and recommend lhat its sale, to the cltizcas of Blytheville lie discontinued because we believe that the condition of the milk warrants this action. Representatives of this office will be pleased to visit Blytheville for the pur|»se of explaining in greater detail the re- sulls of our survey and the rcasol for our opinions if this should prove necessary In nny action that is Instigated, and we desire to be informed of any action that is taken Yours very truly, T.

Arkansas Canneries Named (n Suit By OPA TOUT .SMITH, Ark., Jan, 17 (U.I'.)—The OI'A has filed suit In U. S.

I petitions I provision, 1 that landlords in preparing their I petitions give full and complete | details of the improvement made. As one'examplc of what might I constitute a major capital Improve- lineiit, Mr. .Cunnlnglmm cited the I complete rehabilitation nf dwell- |ing unit or an apartment house. "Where this has been done." Mr. I Cunningham I should state said, "the landlord in ills petition the I amount of money he spent in the 1 rehabilitation. He should give-de- I tails of how iiie money was spent, I such as'New Reef.' 'He-built Cellar I Walls,' 'Re-wiring,' 'New plumbing,' I 'Complete Re-decoration.' "Complete details will enable the [Rent Office to process the petition I quickly eliminating unnecessary de] lay which would be occasioned if I the Rent Office has to request additional information.'' By themselves the Items, cnumer- [ tiled-by Mr. Cunningham would not constitute a major capital im- I provenicnt, but would be consid- I cred ordinary maintenance and rc- Ipair. It is where the character of j the structure is changed by the I rehabilitation, placing the slnic- 1 ture inlo a higher renlal range I that qualifies n landlord to pctl- I tion for a rent increase. Mr. Cunningham also reminded j landlords that there are two provisions in the rent regulations covering cases where a major I capital improvement has been I made. One of • these applies when j the improvement lias been made I after the effective date of the rent I ^implications which was October 1, 1942, for lllis Area. The other applies where Ihe improvement was I made before the maximum rent date, March 1, 1942, but a lease or I other rental 'agreement was in force at the time the improvement kwas completed, continuing in force Jon the maximum rent date, preventing the landlord from in| creasing the rent. Other examples of a major cap- I ital improvement, as against ordinary repair, replacement and maintenance would be the addition of one or more rooms by fin- I ishing the attic of a house, or the installat.'on of a second bathroom.

Millions Switching To Mutton Suet And Medication "Old Reliable" For Relieving Chest Muscle Tightness-Coughing, Rheumatic Pain, Simple Bruises and Many Other Home Uses. Grandma liked to "rub" miseiies of chest colds and other simple pain. She medicated her rnh but insisted it contain mutton suet. She liked the way mutton suet disappeared as it helped carry medication to nerve ends in skin to relievo pain. Today science has modernized Grandma's old-time pain relief principle to bririK you Penctro, the salve that contains mutton suet plus B active ingredients. Mothers now thank Grandma for her old idea • that created this newer relief. In this colds' season, Penetro is especially helpful in casing chest muscle tightness, chest rawness, loosening phlegm, relieving coughs. That's because Penetro melts instantly, quickly vanishes to act 3 ways (1) To relieve pain at nerve ends in skin. (2) To case chest muscle lightness by counter-irritation. (3) To sootlie irritated breath passages through inhaled aromatic vapors. Ponetro is so helpful, too, in casing rheumatic and neuralgic pain, taking sting from cliapped lips sml nostrils, and as n soothing dressing for bruises, minor cuts.
