MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1943 Board Explains Whys and Hows of Ration Book POINT RATIONING IS CLARIFIED AT STATE MEETING B. B. Bailey Attends Conference Sunday, Monday in Des Moines When Mason City housewives start out to do the day's marketing next month, they are going to be carrying little books that will be as important as money--war ration book 2. This ration book will guarantee that everybody in the Untied States gets his fair share of all processed foods, be they (inued, bottled, dried or frozen, according to B. B. Bailey, chief clerk of the county war price and ration board. It contains both red and blue stamps with a number on each to show its value. The red stamps will be used later for meat, while coffee and-sugar will continue to be purchased with the stamps from war ration book 1. * * * Bailey made this announcemen following his return from a wartime food management conference for nine midwest states held in Des Moines on Sunday and Monday. Besides a value number, each stamp will bear a letter, A, B or C, indicating: when to use the stamp. The year will be divided into ration periods. For instance, blue stamps marked A, B and C will be used during the first period and will be invalid after that, Bailey said. The government will set the point value for each kind and size of processed food and an offiria chart will be posted in each grocery store. Changes will be made not oftener than once a month. I' is important to remember thai there is no connection between prices and points. Points will be set according to demand, and may 3e changed without an accompanying change in price, explained Bailey. * * * The housewife may use all the books of the household to buy processed food and anyone may do the shopping;. Each one in the family will have a total of 48 points for one ration neriod. But it will be necessary to ise tiie points wisely for when the tamps for one period are gone no nore processed food can be pur- hased until the next ration period, IT. Bailey warned.

Steffens, Des Moines, was n Mason City Wednesday making reliminary plans for coming here n Feb. 1 as youth personnel rep- esentative of the National Youth Administration, housed at present n the Central brick school build- ng.

I IOWA RECORD IN NAVY ENVIABLE IN II, S. HISTORY Iowa Sons Distinguish Themselves in War Says Mrs. Pedelty Nearly one thousand miles from salt water, Iowa nevertheless holds the enviable naval distinction of. having more, native sons in the U. S. navy than any other state, according to figures as of the war's beginning. Since Pearl Harbor, 20 thousand have enlisted from this state. These outstanding facts were emphasized Tuesday by Mrs. Walter B. Pedelty, member of the North Iowa Navy Mothers' club, in a KGLO Forum talk entitled 'Iowa's Place in Our Naval History." Mrs. Pedelty spoke of difficulty in obtaining particular information relating to Iowa's naval contributions, as distinguished from the general records of the ninth naval district. Iowa and 12 other midwesterri states make up this district. * * * The ninth district, from the year 1911 when the Great Lakes ! training station was commissioned in its situation 40 mites north of Chicago, has made a remarkable record in supplying the navy with men, Sirs. Pedelty said. It was a "radical departure" for the navy to recruit in- landers in such large numbers, she explained. * * * Citing the current statistic that more than one-third of naval personnel comes from the inland states of the ninth district, Mrs. Pedelty said: "The boys from the farms and small towns in the mid- west have demonstratedsan astonishing knack for learning technical trades aboard the warships." Within the past 10 clays Iowa's contribution to the navv has been underlined in red, with "the loss in action of the five Sullivan brothers of Waterloo, pointed out by Mrs. Pedelty as "the greatest (loss) ever suffered by a single family in American naval history." * * * Another Iowa family completely enlisted in the navy, said the speaker, is the Floyd Patten family consisting of the father and eight sons, of Odebolt. They are referred to as the navy's largest family, Mrs. Pedetty said. "In 1888 the navy had less than 14 thousand enlisted men," the navy mother said. "Since Pearl Harbor 20 thousand men have enlisted from Iowa alone. This does not include those who were already in the service." Mrs. Pedelty named Eugene B. -Ely, Williamsburg, Iowa, as the man who. conceived the idea of the aircraft carrier by executing airplane flights from ship-to- shore and shore-to-ship both. * * * Naming the several navy ships that have borne the Rawk- eye state's name, Mrs. Pedelty said the first was a naval sloop completed in 1867. The second "Iowa" was launched in 1896. It was this warship that fired the first salvo in the battle of Santiago. * * * The battleship "Iowa" was used as training ship during World war I. and was sunk in 1923 after a period of use as a target ship, Pedelty said. The third "Iowa" was under construction in 1924 when the Washington limitation treaty was signed. It was junked in accordance with this document's terms, the speaker recalled. The present "Iowa" only recently slid down the ways of the Brooklyn navy yard, and is now the greatest dreadnaught afloat, said Mrs. Pedelty. Mrs. Henry A. Wallace, wife of the vice president and herself an lowan, christened the battleship. * * * Mrs. Pedelty named the five admirals from Iowa: Admiral Hustvedt, Decorah; Admiral Yarnell, Independence; Admiral Smith.

Firemen Hunt Fire As Lady Tires of Waiting, Puts It Out The Mason City fire department was out Wednesday morning hunting for a fire and Chief Daniel H. Shire admitted for the first time in recorded history that a "customer" finally got tired of waiting and put out the fire herself before the fire laddies arrived. But the chief wouldn't admit the blame was on the fire department. He said the telephone operator gave the address as 209 Seventh street southwest when the fire actually was at 209 Seventh street southeast. Mrs. Freda Plonske already had put out the fire which started when paper cartons in the coal bin caught fire from a hole in the furnace smoke pipe which they were touching. A daughter smelled the fire and called the department. The error In the address was discovered by use of the police radio, a unit of which is installed in Chief Shire's car, permitting the firemen to get to the scene without returning to headquarters.
