OPA NEWS-- · Farmers' Gas, Oil Ration Plans Ready Plans for the big job of issuing Iowa farmers their rations of non- highway gasoline and tractor fuel oil, for the 1945 crop year, were completed in a joint meeting recently between officials ot the office of price administration and the AAA at Des Moines, it was announced by B. J. Eggert, chief clerk of the local war price and rationing board. Changes in the method of ap-* plying have been made to simplify I the procedure, Eggert said, and the farmers can assist greatly if they follow the instructions closely. Applications can be obtained from distribution officers, located at the AAA office, 22 2nd N. E. on or afler Feb. 2. The R-537 application is for gasoline or tractor fuels that require gasoline coupons; an R-1102 application should be used for kerosene or distillate. To insure prompt action a farmer should complete his application and mail it immediately to his local war price and rationing board, Eggert said. He emphasized that while all Lutheran church in the southern Minnesota community, addressed 300 persons attending the 5th annual dinner of the Mason City branch of the Lutheran Welfare society at the Y. M. C. A. banquet room. "Let us as Christians and community builders set our own house in order as we proceed with these tasks," he said. "For community building like charity should begin at home."

Snyder Says Gate Returns Pay for All Equipment Athletics at Mason City high school a r e financed entirely through boxoffice receipts, according to Harold Snyder, principal. He explained that tax money collected is used only for salaries of coaches, maintenance of the athletic plant and costs of transportation of players. Equipment used is purchased from gate receipts. State law prohibits the purchase of equipment with tax money. ' * Mason City high school pays for all medical fees for injuries sustained in athletic competition. Mr. Snyder pointed out that the local school is one of the few to give medical protection to players. Some schools require parents to sign a statement of liability, thereby releasing the institution from al obligations. Other schools as-' t' same part of the fees required for treatment.

In response to action by the union membership here the executive board of local No. 38 sent the following telegram to Lewis J. Clark, international president of the United Packinghouse Workers union: "Our membership in special meeting Jan. 29 voted unanimously to request international executive board to take necessary steps for conducting a strike vote in the Mason City Armour plant. Continued delay by the war labor board and by interference, Stabilization Director Vinson has strained the workers to a fine edge.

Public on the wartime application list for n e w tires. They're a lot surer of getting theirs than John, too. Every time the fighting steps up, the need for more tires steps up. Gen. Eisenhower made that clear with his blunt statement calling for more tires to support our invasion forces, adding in plain English that tires are his No. 1 shortage item. On the western front alone, 3 million tires are rolling night and day to move the half-million heavy trucks and other vehicles in operation. Throughout the world there are 2 million American-made heavy vehicles travel- ing on rubber tires, and the fatality rate of tires is as staggering as their number. In Europe alone, the loss for all purposes amounts to almost 5,000 a day. The going, obviously, is considerably tougher on the battle front than on the home front. Moreover, recapping, careful driving, car pooling can't solve the battle front problem. But these are measures which help on the home front. S I C K ? Why not let us help you? Dr. A. P.
