But h» added that, even with Christmas shopping under way, he thinks there will be enough coins to meet demandi of the nation's expanding economy. >»ld that coin rationing by federal rewrv* banks U expected to end next month at the latest. The usual policy Is to permit unlimited exchange of dollar bills (or colni. H«re ii how the situation de- 'eloped and what the mint is doing about it, as outlined by Howard. It co»ta money to make money— 21 cent« for * pound of copper to make IIS pennies. The mint asked Congress for an appropriation big enough to pay for producing 1,150.000,000 coins In the year which began July 1—an output that would have taken about 7,000 tons of metal. But Congress allowed the mint funds for production of only ) 325 000,000 coins. On top of that, nickel and copier are scarce defense materials. For one month, September, the mint couldn't get any copiier nt all to make pennies. At the same lime, the demand for coins has been Increasing sharply, .tore states and cities Ere putting on sales taxes, nnd that lakes more wnnles. More and more buying of all sorts of things Is being [lone hrough coin-operated vending machines. Because of Its shortage of funds and materials, and the growing lemnnd, the mint couldn't turn out olns as fast as they were needed i the business marts. The treasury appealed to citizens o turn In their plfgy bank hoards of coins and get savings stamps or dollars instead. That brought a lot of coins out from hiding. Vending machine operators, including cities which operate parking meters, were urged to empty their coin boxes more often to get Die coins In circulation. The mint stepped up production is fast as Its budget would permit, Howard said. The Denver mint went in two shifts, six days a week, and he Philadelphia mint stepped up rom the usual 40 hours of produc- lon to a 50-hour week. From July 1 through November. :he mlnta turned out 183.000.000 coins—reaching a peak of 190.000.000 n October, 130,000.000 Iti November. The dally output hns been running rom 8.000,000 to 10,000,00ft—consum- »K from 30 to- W teas of metal. Howard snld that this, production should take care of demand l[ the treasury program for keeping coins In use is followed nnd, by January, the supply should be more than ample. DOCTOR OF THE YEAR-Dr. A. C. Voder of Goshen, Ind., has been named "Family Doctor of 1951" by the American Medical Association, meeting in Los Angeles. Dr. Yodec, who 5s deceptively spry for his 84 years, offers this free prescription for good health: "The only way to itay young Is to keep on the go— it'i better to wear out than rust out."

DRUOS MAS' HE1,P If the cause of the irritation can be removed (such as a chronic infection or an Irritation from dust or the bronchitis, too. may clear up. if, however, it has existed for a lotig time, even removal of the original cause mav not bring complete relief, in s uc.)i cases drugs may be helpful and general measures aimed at Improving the general physical condition are also advised. The subject of bronchitis cannot lie dk;niteed without mentioning the fact that It can be serious and Hint it can lead to a still more dangerous condition known as bronchlectasis. The question of climate also comes in. Some patients are relieved by change to a warm moist sea level climate and some get worse. Some are relieved by going to a high dry climate, and .some get worse. The only thing O n e can do, therefore. Is to try a new climate for a few months and watch the results carefully before coming to a final decision.

OPS told the committee that in addition to the emergency survey of grocery prom margins, It plans a comprehensive look at average markups, to start early next year The aim, OPS snld, was to determine If food price regulations Issued last March are hurting grocers. The price agency said overall adjustment of prices would have to await the outcome of the early 1952 survey. It added that It wants to determine U some celling prices are too high. OPS officials told newsmen higher margins, if permitted, would not necessarily mean higher prices for every Item on the grocery store shelf.
