TUESDAY, JANUARY 19, 1943 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE EXPLAIN HOW PLAN WORKS List Ration Items Under New Program DES MOINES, (U.R--The office of price administration for the first time revealed details Tuesday of the general food rationing program, expected to begin before the end of February. How the program will operate was explained by Kenneth E. Stau'ffer, chief of the OPA's processed food division. He spoke Monday before retail and wholesale grocers from nine midwest- ern states at the first of several regional meetings to acquaint the food industry with the program. The following foods, constituting more than 200 grocery items, will be rationed immediately when the program begins: Canned--Fruils, vegetables, all soups, juices, baby goods;' Bottled--Juices, soups, catsup, chili sauce; Frozen--Fruits, vegetables; Dried--Fruits; In jars -- Fruits, vegetables, soupa, juices. Meat will be rationed later in the program. Sugar and coffee, of course, already are rationed. Under the program a consumer will be permitted to shop in any grocery store. He may buj . expensive or inexpensive brands of food. The amount ot items he may buy will be limited, however. If he buys high point-value items he will get fewer cans than if he buys low point-value items He will have to learn to budgel his ration points as well as his money. While no exact date has yet been set for the beginning of the new rationing program, it was expected to come before the end of February. Before rationing begins the sale of canned goods and other items to be rationed will be frozen for one week. Sometime during this ·week every consumer will have to register for ration book No. 2. Registration was expected to be held again in schools. Each consumer should be prepared for registration in three ways: 1--He must have with him and show all No. 1 ration books for himself and every member of his family; 2--He must know how many commercially canned, etc., goods he has at home; 3--He must be able to say how much coffee he had at home as of November, 1942. The consumer will continue to use ration book No. 1 for buying coffee and sugar. At the registration site, the consumer will be given one ration book No. 2 for each member of the family, regardless of age. These books must be carefully 'preserved. Ration book No. 2 has two sets of stamps, one, red and the other, blue. The red stamps are for meat, the blue stamps for canned foods. Since meat will not be rationed immediately, the blue stamps will be used first. Each stamp has both a letter and a number, on it. The letter shows when that stamp may be used. The number shows its value. The letters run from A through Z, except for the letters I and O which are omitted. Each letter appears on four stamps. Thus there are four A stamps, four E stamps, and so on. In all, there are 96 blue stamps in ration book No. 2. The stamps will be used in three letter groups. That is stamps with A. B and C on them will be used during the first ration period. Then stamps with D E and F will be used during the second ration period. And so on. The length of each ration period will be announced later by the OPA. Gives Details of General Food Rationing Program Clear Lake Man Will Take Over Job With St. Ansgar Company ST. ANSGAH--C. G.
