WHY: The O. P. A. has ruled that wu can only one-half as much mix. That moans we can make but half the amount of ice cream, and can supply but half of our customers ther-r usual purchases. By selling filled packages we can supply many more of our customers. To make our prices right we have reduced them to correspond with the saving in package content. Hand-packing reduced the volume very materially and lessened the amount of cream we had to sell. New Packaged Prices They Are Lower!

Applies to Retailers The OPA will require retailers to open ration bank accounts in the banks where they customarily do business. In these ration accounts the retailer will deposit the ration coupons received from their customers against which they will draw spec'al ration checks when ordering new supplies. It is expected that only retailers whose food sales, in December, 1942, exceeded $5,000 will be directed to operr ration accounts. Consumers Not Affected Consumers, such as housewives, motorists and other individuals who purchase rationed commodities for consumption will not be affected by the new system. They will continue to obtain their ration coupons from local ration boards and they will continue to spend their coupons at the stores just as they have been doing in the past. Neither does the new "ration banking system" affect the regular money or check accounts of the public at all. The public will continue to use their bank accounts in the customary way. Save Work for Boards Ration coupon banking is a new plan for handling a lot of work now done by 5,50o local ration boards. Collecting, counting, recording, controlling and safe-guarding of ration coupons and exchanging them for certificates by means of which dealers order new supplies of commodities for sale to the publ'c has threatened to overburden the ration boards, hence the new system. The banks are thus performing a nonprofit war service, another service to the numerous war jobs they are already performing.
