Under the first order, house holders whose fuel oil heating ra lion is 200 gallons or less a year an amount most common amoni those heating by stoves--will re ceive ration coupons redeemable, any time during the year insteat of coupons segregated into heating periods. * * * As a result, these householder \vill receive class 3 coupons o fixed gallonage - v a l u e valid throughout the year instead o being restricted by heating periods. This modification, OPA said will relieve small users, who often buy less than 10 gallons at a time of the necessity of exchanging class 1 coupons for definite gal- Jonage coupons of one or five gallons. * The second order, designed to aid the petroleum industry ii meeting delivery problems, established "overlap" periods of 15 day in the validity dates between thi. expiration of the current ration and issuance of a renewal ration. * * * The new overlap periods chiefly will affect consumers using fue ..oil for uses other-than heating such as domestic cooking, lighting and industrial purposes. These al lotments are issued on a three months basis and the consume must apply at his local board for a renewal of rations at the end o the period. " : · ' These rations may now be used form an additional 15 days afte the expiration date, provided an application has been filed for a renewal.

Shortage of Meats, Fats and Clothes Is Combined With Overwork for German People (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is one of a series of articles by Mr. Hoover.) MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE By' HERBERT HOOVER . «J **«M»JK,»»A n\JUVE,El A LL is not well upon the German home front today The f*- blitz and terror which were to have won a short war have in a large sense fajled. Germany has abandoned the houe that she can bring the war to a swift conclusion. , Warned by the collapse on the home front in World war I the Germans this time made great preparations in expanded agriculture in crr»r»H -fn/^H TV.At^To 4f*-.ri;if* .*_ . . ° · · *.^ stored food, metals, textile and in synthetic production of oi rubber, explosives. Upon invasior of Norway, Holland, Belgium Jugoslavia, France, Poland the Ukraine she seized their acc u m u l a t e d stores. I n c o n s e~ quenco of this advance preparation and this ·obbery, G e r- many was not s u b s t n n- tially short of supplies during the first two y e a r s of the war. But she Herbert Hoover has consumed her stocks anc there is much less to be taken from the invaded countries. The tide has now turned on the homi front, and all the forces of in ternal degeneration are/" now ii action. By working millions of prison ers and imported labor the Ger mans have kept up the breac potato, and vegetable supplies The so-called normal bread anc cereal ration amounts to a rate o about 260 pounds per person pe annum against the 200 pounds thi American people eat. * * * But the story in meats and fats is far different. The blockade has greatly reduced her imports of vegetable and,fish oils and feed for her animals. Her animal products h a v e greatly diminished. * * ¥ All calculations of meat and fa supplies are very involved, bu the following represent an ap proximation and indicate th trend. In 1035 the Germans con sumed at the rate of about 16 pounds of combined meats and fats of all kinds per person pe annum. In 1939 the "normal" ra tion was at the rate of about IO U sounds, in 1940 about 91 pounds n 1941 about 81 pounds and ir L942 it was about 70 pounds per annum. Hard workers get more This does not indicate any substantial meat or fat supplies from he Ukraine. At my direction after the last var, an investigation of the food experience during the war indicate that the present amount of ats in their ration is below the full health level to the ordinary onsumer. * * * But equally important is the degeneration of practically all other supplies fat civilian use, including clothing and coal The People suffer from cold in winter. Overcrowding is adding its miseries. * * * ' The wear and tear 'on the rail- vays and machine shops and their estruction by air attack are cre- tmg difficulties in transportation nd manufacture. German man- ower on the home front is weak- ning steadily despite forced la- or from the occupied countries A Work week of 60 hours is the iimmum in factories compared o our average of under 44 hours The workmen are feeling the ressure of overwork. She is mak- ng frantic efforts to procure tilled manpower from the oc- upied countries. Mentally the people have rc- reated from confidence of vic- ory and have fallen back upon esolutions of defense. They now ealize that they are an island in sea of 200,000,000 invaded and -*K Vlng P e °P Je who hate them nth an irreparable bitterness thus the Germans know the ream of the new order in Europe as vanished. The terrors of aer- al bombardment and the losses n battle are having a depressing ffect upon the spirit of the peo- le. * That tlic home front is far from contented is indicated by the nazi fortifications of strategic buildings ,n preparation to quell civil disturbances and by the placement of nazi generals m command of the armies over the older staff. Further degeneration cannot be toppad. However, I do not be- eve the Germans will collapse gam internally at the end of his their fourth winter in this 'ar. But it is impossible for them o withstand indefinitely thes» ressures on the home front. There is, however, at once a iajor reservation to this state- lent. Germany is still potent for fensive, and she is under tre- lendous pressures from the home ·ont to break somewhere the ng which surrounds her. The ily direction she can gain sub- tantial relief for the home front s to the southeast. If her armies ould effect junction with th» apanese in the Indian ocean -by efeat of the united nations in ersia or Egypt and India, they m i l . - ] r.V..A«. -. . ·* - - --tr^ i - ~ u«u nnjid, U I U could open a new economic arc from which great relict would come--rubber, metals and oil She could get food, particularly fats fruit and sugar. She could lift her whole standard, and in such an event the home front would stiffen for an indefinite number of years. ' The Italian armies have been ·o repeatedly defeated in Africa that they have long passed their zenith. Her navy has been beaten in every first-class encounter. Her submarines are not so . effective as the Germans.' Her airmen have proved inferior. Like Rumania and Hungary she is only a military appendage to Germany. .Italy is suffering greatly from air raids and seems to have little resistance. She is short of many materials due to the blockade. In food, with a much lower normal , standard of living, she is more nearly self-supporting than Germany. But with poor administration many of her people are suffering. She has no coal or oil except such as the Germans give to her. Her clothing is in bad shape from lack of textiles. The coming winter will be the worst she has experienced. Thus on the home front, Italy has degenerated more than Germany. Her zeal for this war has never been extravagant. It is weakening despite stiffening by German personnel. Attrition is likely to produce results on Italy sooner than upon Germany. King John of Bohemia, as an ally of Philip of France, was at the battle of Crecy, Aug. 26, 1346, at which the French army suffered overwhelming defeat at the hands of the English. Although completely blind, King John insisted upon being in the thick of the battle where h6 died fighting his unseen foes.

Belgian Joke LONDON, U.R-Be!gian patriots have converted a practical joke not uncommon in the United States into a tool- of war in the struggle against pro-German civil administrators, the Belgian government in exile reported Thurs- ·'y. Because of it, 13 burgomasters have quit at Liege, one after the other, and the nazis can't find another Belgian to take the job.
