20 THE MONTCLAIR TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH 25, Rationed Foods Under Ceilings Rationing of Meat, Fat and Cheese Scheduled to Start Monday. With meats, fats Including butter, and cheese scheduled for rationing next week, rationing officials pointed out that the majority of the foods included in the program will be under price ceilings. At present, butter Is under a specific dollars-and-cents ceiling which pegs the price of ninety-three score print butter at fifty-seven cents a pound. Cheese, lard, shortening . and cooking and salad oils are all under a fixed markup ceiling which permits the retailer & fixed percentage of profit over net cost, while margarine is price-frozen at the maximum price charged by each retailer in March, 1942. "While all meats are controlled by the General Maximum Price Regulation with prices pegged at March, 1942, levels, pork will be placed under specific dollars and cents ceilings effective April 1 with beef and other meats to follow soon after. Under the specific schedule some of the more popular pork cuts wiu oe pricea as follows: Sliced bacon (de-rined, smoked), grade A (not store sliced), forty-seven cents a pound; skinned, smoked ham, center sUces, sixty-one cents a pound; skinned, smoked whole ham, forty-one cents a pound; center cut pork chops (fresh or frozen pork loins), forty-four cents a pound; salt pork (dry salt bellies, fresh, cured or frozen), twenty-seven cents a pound. Under the meat-fat-cheese rationing and price regulations each retailer is required to post both an Official list of point values per pound, and of prices per pound. Dealers will be able to get the official point charts at postoffices, and the price lists at rationing boards this week. To prepare housewives for the new Cieat-fat-cheese rationing program which gets under way next Monday (March 29) State OPA Director Ker-ney's office issued the following list of pointers: One Beginning March 29 consumers will use the red stamps in War Ration Book Two to purchase meat, fats including butter, and cheese. Two Each consumer will use sixteen points a week to purchase any of the rationed meats, fats and cheeses. During the first week the red "A" stamps may be used (beginning March 29). On April 4 the red "B" stamps become valid; on April 11, the red "C" stamps become valid: on April 18 the red 'D'' stamps can be used. All expire on April 30. On April 25 the red "E" stamps can be used, and the expiration date for these will be announced later. The reason for this arrangement Is to limit consumption to sixteen points a week per consumer, to keep pace with the rate of distribution of these perishable foods. Three Dealers are permitted to make change in the red stamps. Only one-point red stamps can be used to make change. For example: if your meat purchase comes to seventeen points, and your available stamps total eighteen points, the dealer must give you a one-point Btamp in change. If your stamps total twenty points, he must give you three one-point stamps in change. (This Is one of the ways in which the meat-fat-cheese rationing program differs from the processed food program. Dealers are not permitted to make change in blue Etamps In purchases of canned and Brocessed foods.) Two Aeronautical Courses at School One Class Leads to Five Diploma Points.

Aviation Exhibit At Bellevue Branch On Monday the Bellevue Avenue Branch Library re-opened at its regular location at Bellevue and Norwood Avenues after about nine weeks at a temporary location in the Upper Montclair Post Office building, during conversion from oil to coal. With the reopening of the regular branch a special exhibit of aviation material is being shown, including forty books and a careful selection of pamphlets on the subject. The books shown include titles selected by Frederick P. Graham, aviation editor of the New York Times, and Ellen Lewis Buell, Children's Book editor of the Times Book Review, as "Recent Books on Aviation for High School Age." Sconis to Hear Lieut.-Commander Boyd A treat is in store for Cub and Boy Scouts of the Watchung School next Friday evening, April 2, when Lieutenant Commander J. Clement Boyd of the U. S. Navy's public relations division, will appear in the school auditorium under the auspices of Cub Pack 12 to talk on naval aviation and to show movies of the Naval Aviation Training Program. Cub Master Theodore Martin will introduce Commander Boyd who, as a resident of Montclair, is well known in town. Members of Boy Scout Troop 12, one of the largest troops in Montclair, have been invited to attend as well as other Scout troops in the Central District, Eagle Rock Council. Parent of both Cubs and Scouts are invited to be present. Notable among the changes caused by the war at Montclair High School are two new courses, aeronautics, a five-point major, and pre-flight aeronautics, a Victory Corps subject. "Suggestions have been made," states Harold Ferguson, principal, to continue such courses as a Dart of the regular curriculum in post-war years." Aeronautics, meeting five periods , per week for five diploma points, is taught by W. Kenneth Sprague, mathematics teacher, rod-ert Christie Jr- a resident of Mont clair and in the past closely con nected with aviation, conducts the pre-flight class. The members of the major aeronautics group are now engaged in studvine meteorology. Among the other units of study are the follow ing: airplane identification, theory of flight, navigation, aids and safeguards and traffic regulations. The objectives of this course set up by Mr. Sprague have in his opinion been realized and closely followed. These are (1) "to change the thinking of our boys and girls to prepare them for a lire m an air-minaea world: and (2) to give special training at once to that group of boys in our school who will become tomorrow's air pilots. As an outgrowth of the major aeronautics program, the pre-flight aeronautics class began in December as a part of the training offered by the High School Victory Corps courses. Organized to meet three days a week for twenty-five weeks, the principal requirement is that the student, boy or girl, has at least two and one half years of mathematics to his credit. Mr. Christie, who is conducting the class, was connected, in the last war, with naval aviation. Water Supply Unit Opposes Measure Creation of State Authority Draws Fire. The North Jersey District Water Supply Commission, of which Montclair is a member, has joined the Passaic Valley Water Commission and the State League of Municipalities in opposing the proposed legislation of Senator Scott of Cape May to create a State water authority. Spokesmen for the groups have contended that the creation of such a body would be a violation of home rule and would lead to imposition of exorbitant water rates, against which the public would have no redress. A statement from the League of Municipalities contended that passage of the bills would revolutionize the water supply system in New Jersey. For years, the statement said municipalities have been urged to develop their own water supply systems and the bill would just reverse the procedure. Senator Scott declared that establishment of the State authority would increase efficiency and reduce the danger of water shortages. DISHES We Like Especially the Last "Name the solids.' "Mineral, vegetable, geometry and comfort." (This is a regular Jeatute appearing each week under the sponsorship of the Consumer Information Committee of OCD. All suggestions pertain to foods available in our local markets at the time of printing, according to Mrs. R. O. Wood of the committee. Consideration is given to cost, nutritive value and extended ways of us ing "left-overs." The recipes from Montclair women have been compiled and edited by Mrs. Herbert Schoof of 39 Macopin Avenue, a home economist and homemaker. What do you like? If you have a favorite recipe will you share it with others by sending it to Mrs. Schoof?) More days of adjustment are ahead. With the butter and margarine frozen this week there must be more whole milk consumed, more carrots in the menu, cheese and ereen leafy vegetables must be used fre quently to provide the vitamin A. The meat rationing program will require definite planning, particularly for those families who do not care for the roast the third and fourth dav Though right here, let us state, there are so many delicious dishes made with roast meat for third and fourth day servings, the wise housewife will make a special file of suggestions and offer them to the family as spe cial treats. There have been some ex cellent suggestions that have ap peared previously in this column. Watch for more. These recipes are all tried and true, sent in by local women who like to cook. Today's column is stressing Short Cuts of Veal. Veal is available in some of the markets this week Breaded Veal cutlets are always good but require deep frying which calls for more fat than we should use, therefore is on the privileged list.

Head, headmaster of Montclair Academy, joined headmasters throughout New Jersey, on Thursday, in a discussion of Army, Navy and air force plans, for the purpose of recruiting material for officers training in these fields of service. Plans already operating such as the V-l to the V-12, were clarified in order that visiting educators may clearly inform student bodies. In addition, the new plans about to be launched were made known. Edu cators have been seriously handi capped by lack of sufficient informa tion, when advising students as to the possibilities of enlistments. After words of welcome by presi dent Dodds. Colonel Arthur E. Fox, professor of military science, spoke on the "Army Specialized Training Prosrram." Lieutenant Donald k.. Walker, U.S.R.N., discussed "Navy College Training Program." Dr. John Stalnaker gave a brief discourse on "Details of the Navy V-12 Qualifying Examination, April 2." "Education and Selective Service" and "Problems of Admission" were discussed in open forum. Fat Salvage Drive Lags in Stale Despite a new high mark of 304,142 pounds for February and a consequent increase in the percentage of its quota for the collection of household fats. New Jersey's ranking among the states for this form of salvage is not likely to be much better than it was in January, when it was placed twenty-sixth, according to Clinton M. White, General Salvaage Secretary for New Jersey. The February collections showed an increase of 34,831 pounds over those for January. Eight rendering companies reported collections of 43,684 pounds in Essex County, five gave 24,810 for Passaic County and four showed 23,-706 in Hudson. Most of the rendering firms lumped their totals without regard to county or municipal limits. The following article was contributed by the Consumer Information Ccmmittee of the Montclair Defense Council pointing out the reasons for the shortage of gasoline in the East which resulted this week in the value of "A" gasoline rations being extended from two to four months. While the OPA driving ban was lifted at the same time, a Washington announcement stated that military and industrial needs, , plus a program to insure adequate home heating in the Eastern area next Winter, merit first consideration. , The reason why there has been a shortage of petroleum and gasoline along the Atlantic Coast for almost a year is not because of a shortage of production of petroleum or any lack of processing facilities, but because of transportation difficulties. The route to North Africa from the eastern seaboard is shorter and less dangerous than from the Gulf ports. In fact, Eastern ports are 2,000 miles hearer the North African battle fronts than the oil ports of Texas. Up to a month ago 614 Allied and neutral merchant vessels were sunk in Western Atlantic enemy action since Pearl Harbor. The 1942 aver age was ten ships lost a week. When tank ship oil transportation became too precarious, 70,000 tank cars were taken from their normal use and used for oil transportation. However, a big tanker carries 160,000 barrels of oil compared with 200 bar rels carried by a big tank car. This means that it takes 800 tank cars to transport as much oil as one tanker. A new tank car terminal at Bayway, which cost Standard Oil and the Pennsylvania Railroad jointly, between $500,000 and $1,000,000, is now in partial operation and has been handling about seventy-five cars a day. This terminal, the Petroleum Administration estimates, will increase facilities for unloading tank cars in New Jersey by 20 to 25 per cent. "The Big Inch" a two-foot pipeline which runs about 1,400 miles across eight states, under twenty rivers, over the Appalachian Mountains, from Longview, Texas to New York wlil eventually deliver 300,000 barrels of heavy and 350,000 barrels of light oil a day. This pipeline, costing America over $95,000,000, requires fourteen days for any given drop of oil to go the entire length of the pipe. Little of the additional oil brought Soldiers on Furlough Allowed Extra Rations According to a War1 Department ' announcement, soldiers on furlough for seven days or more can obtain quantities of rationed ' foods to supplement the rations of their families or friends-with whom they are spending their furloughs.' Extra rations may be obtained l by presenting furlough ' papers to local War Price ana , ttauon Boards in the area where soldiers are visiting. A soldier may have one-half pound of sugar and sixteen points for processed food for each week or fraction thereof of his furlough. He alsg is entitled to one pound, of coffee for each ration period. by this pipe will be available for civilian use, for as the scope of American attacks in the European theater of war expand, the Army's demands for oil , from the, Eastern ports are increasing. The estimated 120,000 private homes on the East Coast that have converted from oil to coahave been the means of saving about 6,000,000 barrels of fuel oil. An annual saving of 33,000,000 barrels, or a daily saving of 89,000 barrels, through the conversion of 3,300 commercial and industrial conversions has been ef fected so far. The pleasure driving ban has saved daily 1,250,000 gallons of gasoline or enough to fly 1,000 two-engined bombers from London to Berlin and return. On busy days the Allied Air Forces use up to 1,500,000 gallons of high-octane gasoline which must be shipped by tankers. Employers Receive Draft Warning Colonel Edgar N. Bloomer, New Jersey director of Selective Service, warned employers again this week to file replacement schedules on their personnel in order to receive consideration on deferments or essential men. Employers several weeks- ago were asked to list employes in the order of their importance to the business or industry. The lists are distributed to local boards and are supposed to be used by them in determining the draft status of the men. Instructions for and assistance in preparing replacement schedules may be obtained by contacting New Jersey State Headquarters for Selective Service, Armory Drive, Trenton, or the Northern New Jersey branch office, 40 Park Place, Newark. OPA Outlines Gas Book Plan Application for Additional A Rations May Be Made Starting April 22. i ; " . Holders of "A" gasoline ration books who, because of the reduction in rations," require supplemental ra tions to continue necessary occupational driving may apply td local rationing boards on and after April 22, it was announced by State OPA headquarters. Rationing officials emphasized that all applicants for supplemental rations must show to the stisfac-tion of the rationing board tht they have formed a car-sharing cl?b with three or more other person. Onljr under exceptional circumstancte, they said, would a board issue supplemental rations where no car-sharirg club had been formed. They mu.t also have had their tires inspected. It was expected, .because ftf thft reduction in the "A" ration, tfcafc some "B" and."C" ration book hoW-ers would also find it necessary to apply for additional supplementary gasoline. Those car owners are eligible for additional rations if they can prove need, but they were urged to try to live within their curtailed! allotments. Holders of B and C ration boots which come up for renewal, it Vas pointed out, may continue to apply to local boards for such renewals in the usual way. Under the amended regulations, a new procedure for the issuance of B books will be followed by all rationing boards. With maximum B mileage now established at 360 miles a month, all B books will be issued for a period of four months, and will be tailored to fit the mileage requirements of each individual applicant. For the present the board will issue two B books for the maximum mileage (360 miles a month), and will tailor the books for the lesser mileages. Rationing officials said that a new type B book containing thirty-two coupons would soon be made available for the boards, and would eliminate the necessity for issuing two sixteen-coupon books. Heretofore B books were issued for periods ranging from fifty-seven days to a year, depending upon the occupational mileage required, and th maximum monthly mileage was 378. A 92-vear-old citizen of Minonk. HI., rolled up his sleeves and got in 17,000 pounds of scrap for the local scrap drive. iilllllilliii lOMEDAY the last train to war will roll on the tracks of America's railroads! It's possible you may see this train as it makes its historic run and not recognize it. For, in war or peace, all trains look very much alike and operate very much alike. We railroad men like to think of them not so much as war trains or peace trains, but as swift, sure means of transportation serving the people all of the time. We like to think of them as bringing fresh eggs from the farm to kids in big cities, coal from the hills to the mills in the valleys, and pretty dresses from Fifth Avenue to women in Kansas as well as guns and ammunition to men fighting on foreign fields. And after this war, the vast resources of America's nationwide railroad network will be reconverted to greater peacetime services to you. All the experience gained under fire, all the.improved operating methods developed during the war, are being combined now to give America, which always has enjoyed the finest rail transportation in the world, even more superb service. " You can be proud of the record of American railroads in these wartimes. You will be thrilled by the finer transportation offered by the railroads of tomorrow after the last train to war. 3578 height trains dahy Qjl3 1408,964 FREIGHT CARS DAILY X Z5.000.000 MIT TMK DULY AMERICAN RAILROADS AT WAR RAIIROAQ it..
