Fat Salvage Necessity Continuing Now that women receive extra ration points as well as cash for used household fats, the kitchen becomes a more active supply base, and women more vigilant workers on the home front. For in granting ration points in exchange for inedible fats, OPA has emphasized used household fat as a vital war product, and put it up to American women that the country needs all it can get. Faced as we are today, with a shortage of fats and oils, both for food and for industrial use, saving used household fat is primarily a patriotic service, one on which the efficient conduct of the war and the maintainance of civilian standards of living depends. Because there is just so much fat and oil available in the country today, and,the amount is far short of what we normally use, every ounce of fat that can be turned in for industrial production counts. Part of our total national supply of fats and oils has been set aside for industrial use, but in order that these shall be adequate for food, both at home and on the fighting fronts, the industrial use of fat is rigidly controlled by government agencies. When therefore, an American housewife, by economy and care, is able to save some used fat after she has put it to its utmost use for food, her salvaged fat goes into the national stockpile and helps in the output of munitions, medicines and other materials for war and home use.V Because used household fats turned in from American kitchens actually add to our national resources, OPA has decided that the extra ration point allowance, is simply justice, a replacement' of food values as a compensation and recognition of the thrift and initiative of women who have saved and turned in kitchen fats. OPA hopes Ip retrieve from American kitchens the 230,000,000 pounds of used fat ne.eded to meet industry's fats and oils quota, and a tablespoonful a day, saved in every home, will do this. " R e c e n t government studies show that while most American women, 96 per cent of them, to be exact, know that the government wants their used fats, only 52 per cent have actually turned in the fats at any time since the campaign started," explains Roy W. Feet, chairman of the American fat AT ALL AP SUPER M A R K E T S salvage ''And makes it AMERICA'S FAVORITE: Change now to this coffee of finer, fresher flavor!
