Nazi Store Windows Full of Good Things But Shelves Are Mostly Pretty Empty Food Called for by Ration Card Has Almost Lost Its Meaning (EDITOR'S NOTE--The following dispatch, another in a series on conditions.inside Germany in the fourth winter of war, deals wilh the food that Germans eat and how much they pay for it.) STOCK LOSSES IN MAJORITY Some Edge Forward After F. R. Address NEW YORK, (.f--A number of stocks edged forward in Thursday's market, after the president's address to congress, but many caders continued to suffer from neglect. The list was hesitant at the start and, while scattered recoveries appeared in the final hour, declines of fractions to 2 or more points predominated. Dealings, slow the greater part of the day, nicked up at intervals and transfers for the full proceedings were around 700,000 shares. The optimistic view of the war contained in the chief executive's message, brokers said, cheered Wall street appreciably although failing to bring out much in the way of bidding. The thought of the forthcoming national budget disclosures, due Monday, served o chill the buying urge to a considerable extent because of the- ack of clues regarding tax necessities and other factors. Light profit cashing on the December rally persisted as a handicap. Stocks contesting the downward trend with mild success included Houston Oil, which touched a new 1942-43 peak; Consolidated Edison. U. S. Steel, Chrysler, eneral Motors, U. S. Rubber, Cennecott and United Aircraft. Produce (Merchant Quotations) (Cash Quotations by E. G.

O. Hutloe of the police defense squad to have smashed a nationa black market. The prisoner, arrested on a federal warrant, was booked as Eu- ccne Hale Brading. 27, of Miami Hutloe reported that coupons gooc for 2.500 gallons were found at his home and a package addressed to him containing tickets worth 1.00,000 gallons was seized in the mails Brading was charged with illegal possession of ration boiks and was to be given a hearing before U. S. Commissioner Roger E Davis Thursday. The maximum penalty for the violation is on year's imprisonment and a fine o $10,000. KURT/ FAMILY MOVES BELMOND--The Mike Kurtz family has moved from this vicinity to the Dr. Stecle farm, three miles west of Goodell. The name of the slate ot Ari zona comes from "Arizonac 1 ("Ari" small and "Zonnc" spring) so-called by the Papago and Pima Ipdians, according to the state historian in 1927. Prof. John C Van Dyke, however, in The DCS crt, says it was clipped from "Arida-Zona," meaning the "drv belt." ON THE GERMAN FRONTIER, (U.R)--!£ the Germans could buy the things that are displayed' in shop windows, they would be well fed and warmly clothed. But in too many cases there is nothing on the shelves to correspond with the window dressing. Persons who have been inside Germany report that there is less food to be purchased in the reich now than there was at the beginning of the fourth winter of World War I. * * * "The windows of the big shops are stocked wilh an assortment of good things," said a Belgian who had escaped after traveling across Germany, "but they cannot be purchased without a permit. Inside the same shops there is practially nothing- for sale except plaited straw articles and small glass trinkets." * * * There is a joke in Berlin to the effect that in addition to ration cards two things are needed to buy ood--vitamins B and UT, Vitamin ~! stands for "beziehungen"--to ave a drag or influence. Vitamin UT means "unter demtisch"-- rading under the counter. There is still a black market in Icrmany where delicacies can be urchased if one has the money, )ut the supplies have dwindled and prices are fantastic. Coffee osts $53 a pound; butter, SIS a )ound: a bottle of cognac, S20. Only high party officials, diplomats and a few foreigners are able o meet such prices. German rations were cut heavily n April, 1942, but the amount of ood called for a ration card has almost lost its meaning There isn't enough food to fill the ration requirements. * * * The nazis are havinjr difficulty meeting demands even for potatoes and vegetables. Persons recently in Germany reported it was not enough to present your potato and vegetable card, which entitles you to as much as is "available," but that it was much more important to make friends with the shop keeper. Otherwise he probably would tell you: "Sorry, I'm all sold out." * * * A Swedish woman who recently ame from Germany told the United Press it \vas weeks before he had b e c o m e sufficiently riendly with a shop keeper to get ·egetables. If you are rich enough, ou do not bother the grocer and lUtcher, but eat in a restaurant vhere you can get at least the mount of meat--about thrce- juarters of a pound per week--to vhich you are entitled. But, the woman added, you must arrive early or you will nol ind a place--all restaurants are ivercrowded--or the meat dishes vill have been exhausted. The nazis, under Reichsmarshal Icrman Goering's cynical slogan hat "whatever happens elsewhere (in occupied Europe) Germans will not starve," have exertec hemselves to maintain the food front at a subsistence level. For morale, at Christmas they announced a few extra rations, including seven ounces of moat small additional allotments ol vegetables, bread, flour and margarine and two ounces of ersatz coffee made from grain or tea made from dried apple leaves. * * * The big treat was an allotment of a half-bottle of German brandy for each adult to go with reduced quantities of watery, weak beer. War workers were granted an extra ration of cheap wine. * * * The reich is trying to feed between 7,000,000 and 8,000,000 foreign workers and war prisoners working on farms. It also is acting as a clearing house lor food supplies for almost all Europe prompting claims that German, actually is feeding the equivalent of 37,000,000 to I8,000,OOC more than before the war. Germany must be extremely frugal with virtually every item o food, except salt, but the greates and most persistent shortages in elude milk, fish and fresh vege fables. Consequently newspaper frequently praise small children who scour fields and woods in or ganized parties for weeds whtcl can be used as wartime vegetables Nazi propaganda makes much o the food producing potentialitic of conquered areas, particularly the Ukraine, and Germany's futur success in maintaining currcn rations will depend on how we! she can exploit these territories. * * * "The fuehrer is relieving us from the choking dearth of space," Herbert Backe, minister for food and agriculture, said in a speech at Foznan (Poscn), Poland, in November, "but it will he a permanent blessing only if it is filled with Germans." * * * The accuracy of this statcmcn was indicated by a traveler's re port that up to December only single train load of wheat had ar rived ill Berlin from the promise land. The train was covered wit posters proclaiming that "you soldiers send you this food," bu mparatively few Germans could uy any of this "soldiers' gift." Most of it went to nazi officials, Hilary leaders and diplomats. Nevertheless the Germans are ot starving, although they are far orse off than the British. An or- mary meal at a better class estaurant in Berlin or Munich, osting about six marks (S2.20 at ic official rate of exchange), con- sts of thin soup and the choice ' two standard dishes, a potato nd cabbage stew,, or a small amburger or less than t\vo ounces f steak. A menu of Nov. 1 showed hat Haus Hungaria, a Berlin restaurant, offered stewed meat and vegetables or roast b*ef vith salad if the customer was willing to part with 100 grams ,vor(h of meat coupons. Since ·he basic meat ration is 350 trams per week, few could be '.hat prodigal. Haus Hungaria, ike all German restaurants, also served a "stammgeright"-- stable dish, which requires no food coupons, in this case offering boiled turnips for 90 pfennigs (18 cents). * * * The menu listed no fish dish ut there were oysters at 1.75 narks each (45 cents) and the sual unappetizing paprika, spin- ch or celery soup and herring ilad. All warm dishes require estaurant goers to provide a 10- ram fat coupon from their daily ations of 29.5 grams (slightly more than one ounce). At Boarchardt's, once the fa- orite place of Berlin gourmets, he menu is slightly different, ex- ept that the "stammgericht" is aked potatoes instead of turnips nd prices are about 20 per cent ligher. No noticeable difference in the Charles City News Cemetery Association ·folds Annual Meeting CHARLES CITY--The regular nnual meeting o£ the St. Charles Cemetery association was held onday afternoon when the an- rual report was submitted by the ecretary, Charles SnycJer. The eport showed assets of $25,927.0. Receipts for last year were 5,598.23 and d i s b u r s e m e n t s 6,975.36 including the purchase if $3,000 in bonds. Fred Ebert was re-elected as a member of the board, and the other two being Tom Frudden and M. J. Klaus. Mr. Ebcrt is president and Mr. Klaus treasurer. A meeting of the board will be leld Saturday when officers for he year will be elected. ood situation ween Berlin was reported be- and other large ities. although in winter the cap- al always suffers from transpor- ation breakdowns. But in Muich the groumbling is much ouder and more daring because £ the deterioration in the Ba- arlan city's famous beer. It has ecomo a yellowsh dilution tast- _: of saccharine and other chem- cals and an ordinary glassful osts 47 pfennigs compared to bout 20'before the v.'ar. | * * * During: the last three years German food cards have suffered 37 drastic cuts in the various items and now have exactly two-thirds of the buying value they had at the outbreak of war in 1939. Should food restrictions continue on the same scale, in 196 weeks the cards' purchase value would be exactly zero. * * * A typical sign of deterioration n conditions has been a slacken- ng in black market trading, nol ecause of the authorities, bul wing to the absence of goods. A icutral foreigner reported that vhen he was-offered a luncheon f only boiled potatoes recently at German home his hostess ex- used herself by saying she was mable to buy anything on the lack market. There is no reliable comprehen- ive information available here on ,'hat has happened to the health o_ he German people under their educed diet, but the welfare o abies and mothers is known to c inferior to the picture paintec n official reports. * * ¥ "Cases of scrofula and other igns o£ undernourishment a n c msuifable feeding are becoming ncreasingly frequent," a medica 'isitor to Germany reported after rriving in a neutral country. I also is known that the decrease in diet has reduced the people's en ergy, lowered their resistance ant made them increasingly irritable. Travellers report it is a com mon sight to see long lines in fron of butcher shops' wailing for chance to buy meat that frc- cjuently is not available. The nazis ordered peasants throughout Germany to slaughter all cattle possible to obtain meat for the increased Christmas ration, but the upply still fails to meet the demand despite a 20 per cent reduction in livestock herds. fewest in ''Boston Blackie" Series Plays at Palace and Cecil Theaters by Magloph Everyone goes Hollywood sooner or later and now count Boston Blackie in.
