EXCELSIOR SPRINGS MO NOTES INCREASE IN P, 0. BUSINESS Postmaster Carroll Reports $460.35 Gain CLEAR IAKE -- Postoffice receipts for the quarter closing Dec 31, 1942, exceeded those o f . t h e same period in 1941 by S4G0.35 Postmaster Mary D. Carroll saic Monday. Each month of the quarter recorded a gain. Cancellation for D e c e m b e r shows that 106,123 pieces of first class mail were handled at'Clear Lake this year, an increase lot the month of 14,000 more than in 1941. This gain was made in the first 14 days of the month -the count from Dec. 14 to 24 being practically the same as a year ago Due to the co-operation of the mailing public, both in Clear Lake and by persons sending mai to Clear Lake, the Christmas season this year was not as strenuous as other years. Mailing started early Dec. 7 and extendec over a much longer period than m other years, making handling much easier for the personnel. Incoming mail was heavy, many letters from soldiers being ' received. The sale of bonds and war stamps for the month was also excellent, December being the biggest bond month yet 60,000 Quota of Dressings to Be Made CLEAR LAKE--Sixty thousand Ked Cross surgical dressings o the 2 by 2 inch size have been received in Clear Lake as its quota for the next few weeks, Mrs. H N.

What It Means Rationing System "~~ POINT RATION INDIVIDUAL gels 96 blue stamps in ration book 2. (Red stamps to be used for meat rationing later. By HERMAN ALLEV The "point rationing" system won't seem so complicated if you look on your coupon as a sort of money. Beginning nrobably in February, you will have to "spend" these coupons for most varieties of canned, dried and frozen fruits and vegetables just as you spend nickels and ^ dimes. Of course you will still have to fork over those nickels and dimes too. Your "Ration Book No. 2" will contain red and blue, coupons numbered 1, 2, 5 and 8 lettered from A to Z. The numbers stand for point values and the letters for time periods. The blue coupons are to be used for the processed foods and the red ones later for meat. It may be that for the first month of rationing you- will be permitted to use all coupons let- Q STAMPS have different ·· totter* for c/w in limited periods. Number on each shows point vafue in buying. tered A, B and C. If so, you will have 48 points to "spend" on processed food. If only the coupons lettered A and B are released for the first month, you will have only 32 points. As food supplies vary up or down, the OPA may permit you to use more--or fewer --coupons in any period of time. The OPA explains that point rationing is necessary for tilings like canned foods where it is not necessary for things like coffee and sugar. The reason is that there are few it any common substitutes for coffee or sugar. If you ration them you've just about covered the field. With canned goods it's a different story. If you ration just one item, like peas; you simply send people scampering to buy other things similar to peas, and before you know it you have a shortage in them too. So Is Indicted in Boston Tragedy One of the 10 persons indicted In Boston for manslaughter in the Cocoanut Crove disaster which look a toll of hundreds of lives is Barnett \Velansky, owner of the night club. Included in the group of 10 were a number of city officials. Eg STORES will post Of A fists. TM showing point value for each type of canned food. Any stamp can get any food. you have to ration the whole list of canned, dried and frozen vegetables to keep the supply on an even keel. Here's the way it will work. Let's pretend for the moment that only dried beans are involved. Let's say a shortage has developed in navy beans. It won't do any good to ration them,' because folks will simply jump in and buy up all the kidney beans, lima beans, . black-eyed p e a s (which are really beans) and pinto beans they can get their hands on. So you ration ALL kinds of dried beans. But there are plenty o£ lima beans--skads and Scads of them-and just about as many kidney beans. Black-eyed peas and pinto beans are not quite so plentiful Obviously the thing to do is to push lima beans and kidney beans Good Books Ammunition forjBoys in Armed Services D. H. Fitzpatrick Discusses Victory Book Campaign Q MERCHANT will demand ·· stamps with each pwr- c/iase, a* welt as money not exceeding (tiling prices. so that there will still be enough navy beans for everybody to Ket at least A few. So you get out a point ration book. You decide that grocery buyers \vill have to "pay" only one point a pound for lima beans and two points for kidney beans YOU decide to charge four points for black-eyed peas and six for pinto beans. But for navy beans, which are very scarce, you charge 12 points a pound. Then you decide that the general bean situation is such that you can allow each consumer 32 points worth of beans in February. You 'announce that coupons lettered A and B are good for that month. That means the housewife can buy 32 pounds of lima beans for each member of her household, or 8 pounds of black- eyed peas--but only 2 2/3 pounds 70 of Pennsylvania's Dailies Raise Rates HARRISBURG.

It was pointed out that the armv and navy have designated the organizations sponsoring the drive with the chairmen, to lead the way as the official agency for the collection of^books to be distributed to the nation's fighting men. Quality is the keynote of the campaign with the slogan: "Count your books and give books that count." "As a weapon in the war of ideas a book has a place to fill in this war. The first function of a book is to be read, and only books in first class physical condition are to be sent," the local attorney stated. The speaker said that conferences with army and navy officers indicate their preference for the following kinds of books* * ¥ 1. Current best sellers and good books published from 1930 to date popular fiction and popular non- fiCLion in good physical condition.

The second kind of books in great demand in camps are adventure stories and western stories Detective and mystery fiction in good condition \vill go well os they do from the public library shelves. 3.

Beans probably won't be handled in just this way at all, but it illustrates the principle. When point rationing comes nearly every item of prepared food in your grocery store will will have its point value- canned soup, dried prunes, frozen peas. If you can't find exactly what you want, OPA hopes that you will be able to find something very like it. . But remember--your coupons are not money. They are simply proof of your right to buy a certain number of points' worth of goods. You will still have to take a handful of change to the store with you.
