J'r^T i f f:'J? >_'V ' W/*?*. ' ^ -H. _ X/ \ *, Sugar For Fruit Canning Rationed to Family Units The past month has proved a headache for the local sugar rationing board, especially the matter of canning sugar rationing, according to members of the board. When it was announced by state headcfrar- ters that canning sugar would be rationed at 5 pounds per person, beginning on Thursday, May 14, and for three days, rationing boatd offices were crowded all day, with a waiting line, and it was Impossible to care for all 'Of the applicants. Then a few days later the state board extended the time for the applications to care for all of the registrants. For Fruit Canning: Sugar will be rationed to those canning fruit at the rate of 1 pound for each 4 quarts canned the previous year. And this docs not mean one pound per individual, but one pound per family. For instance, a family of four put up 400 quarts of fruit last yearl The family would be rationed 100, pounds of sugar. Then the 5 pounds of can>- nirtg sugar already rationed to the individuals in the family of four would be deducted, which would be. 20 pounds off the 100! Thus a fam* stilus SHOE STORE ALCONA IOW/> Tut SHOt STORE THAT WIS ^ARtOf VOUli Ft lly or four Which had put up* 400 quarts of fruit iln 1941 gets 80 pounds for this ^year's fruit canning. If the family intends to can jellies 'or jams each member may get 1 pound.of sugar, making the total for the family for fruit canning 64 pounds. This fruit canning sugar may be applied for beginning July 10th. 22,000 In Kossuth ThlS county Is an example of what the sugar boards had to contend with. Since May 14th, 5500 canning sugar certificates have been issued by the local board. Clerks In the office tell us that each certificate covers four persons, on the average. Therefore only 22,000 of the 26,000 Kossuth residents have been provided with canning sugar certifcates. Then, too, the board has made trips to various towns in the county and spent a half day >or day ^n an effort to take care of applications. Take Your Time Those of Kossuth residents who have not as yet applied for canning sugar rationing should do so within the next two weeks or before July 1. The office will be open daily until late summer. And, If it is found advisable and necessary, the board will again call on towns throughout the coflnty with a half day or day's service >of ration-ing. v With 22,000 Kossuth persons having already received a certifcate for five .pounds each the ouput of rationed canning sugar so far reaches 'ft total of 110,000 pounds or 65 tons. /' '•"•';."
