Before today's amendment, which becomes effective October 7, 1944. furlough rations of processed food were issued to servicemen on the basis of 8 points for each 9 meals. The adjustment is necessary be cause point values of processed foods are now set in multiples of 10. It is possible, therefore, to buy rationed food only in multiples of in points. Today's amendment, for tho same reason, also provides that temporary Tood rations shnll be issued to civil- Inns who arc eligible on the bnsis of 10 points of processed food for each 7 days.

PIANUT BUTTER To help our many customer-friends and distributors, we make this second Del Monte report on canned fruit and vegetable prospects In just the last few weeks—since we last reported .to you on canned fruit and vegetable prospects—three important things have happened: —the War Food Administration has increased percentages of several items to be set aside for military use. — weather has definitely cut down a number of pack estimates. —the manpower situation has become more difficult. That is why Del Monte, as the leading canner of fruits and vegetables, is continuing to issue this wartime series of reports. During this emergency, all of us must work together. Only with knowledge of what lies ahead can any housewife intelligently plan her shopping or understand the problems facing her grocer. Fruit Situation Tight Peaches are a good example of what can happen to a canning crop. Prospects were good for a bumper yield of fresh peaches in California, when stretches of extremely hot weather matured the fruit so fast that canneries could not handle the full crop with available manpower. This cut down the whole industry's pack. Though we had hoped to do better, it now looks as if the total national pack this year will be only about average, or slightly over average at best. A month ago, the industry knew the government's requirements for canned peaches would be very heavy. Since then, the Quartermaster's Department has upped its quotas still further. This means that supplies for civilians will be materially less than last year. On pears, while the pack turned out better than early estimates and will probably exceed last year's, government needs are larger also, and the amount of canned pears on your grocer's shelves will be very small. The industry hopes to "put up" slightly more fruit cocktail than last year but quotas for our fighters have also grown—so again, it means less of this popular fruit at your grocer's, Del Monte Pineapple and Pineapple Juice will be still scarcer than last year. Pineapple is a two-year crop. The drought of 1943 meant that we were not able to pack a normal amount in 1944—in spite of a favorable ripening season. Military requirements have also been increased. The good news in the fruit picture is apricots. A bumper crop resulted in the largest pack on record. Though military wants are twice as great as in 1943, you can expect as many Del Monte Apricots as you ever did. In total, fruits will be available to civilians in very limited quantities, Total Civilian Vegetable Supply About 20% Less On vegetables—as on fruits—remember that we are telling the story of total supply and what is likely to happen on the home front if present military demands continue. However, this picture could radically change on vegetables if the government reduced quotas out of this year's pack, or released substantial quantities from reserves. In our last report, we estimated that the industry's pack of canned peas would be less. Now we know the amount available for civilians will be about a fifth less than last year.- The government quota on corn has not increased. But the total crop was smaller and the supply for civilians will be considerably less than last year. Asparagus production slightly exceeded last year. Military needs also increased, so the civilian supply is approximately the same as last season. It is expected that the supply of green beans will be slightly less, We had hoped to have good news on beets and carrots. But the armed forces asked the industry to supply them with three times as many carrots as last year, and twice as many beets. So even if packers succeed in producing a much larger volume, civilians won't see as many as last year. The canned tomato pack will not be completed before the end of October, However, it now appears that it will be less than last year. Consequently the amount available for home consumption will be materially less because the government has almost doubled its requirements. On the whole, the civilian supply of canned vegetables apparently will be about one-fifth less than last year, barring reduction in government quotas or release from its reserves. But whotever Del Monte Products ore ovoilable, you should be able to get your shore of them. As we said before, Del Monte Foods will be apportioned to distributors throughout the country on a fair and square basis. This has been our policy ever since the war began. Del Monte deliveries are also spread throughout the year, so you can usually expect to find at least some varieties of Del Monte Fruits and Vegetables at your grocer's. You have a right to your share of these Del Monte Foods, so don't hesitate to ask for them. If you can't find just the one you want, you may still find some other Del Monte variety that will serve your purpose. That's one advantage of learning how to "switch and swap" within the Del Monte line. Del Monte packs so many different products, that no matter which varieties happen to be short, you can choose any other Del Monte Food your grocer has and always be sure of the same quality and flavor. Your Grocer's Troubles Aren't Over You can easily see, too, that all your grocer's problems are not solved. Remember that a leading brand like Del Monte is always the first to be taken from his shelves. Don't blame him for, shortages and inconveniences. Your cooperation is still needed to help everyone in the food industry do a better job for you and for the servicemen fighting for you. Give to your COMMUNITY WAR CHEST
