England also takes pride in its livestock. Many of our breeds of cattle, sheep and horses come from there. • • We think farming has been hard this past season, with the shortage of labor and machinery. It hag been harder elsewhere. In England feed is scarce, meats are needed badly by the people, and German airmen machine" gun the farm animals in the fields. We must remember this all the time—and buy War Bonds— all that we possibly can. There are two good reasons for buying War Bonds. The first is that it will give our boys the guns and planes and tanks they must have. The second is that War Bonds are a sound investment. They never depreciate in value. They return a third more than the original cost in ten years. You can cash them any time after sixty days.

Point Rationing ( They must learn that point values have a nothing to do with dollars-and-cents 2. prices. They must know that they have to give the money price and point stamps for every purchase in a rationed group. Any member of a household may use the books of any other members when shopping, as they do now for sugar and coffee. 3 Every person has freedom of choice in • using her points during each-ration period to buy any rationed item she likes (provided it is available). But when a shopper has used all her points, she must wait until the stamps for the next ration period become valid before she can again buy items in the same group. So the customers must:learn to budget their . points for- the- entire ration period. 4. Starts March 1st Our government will give wide pnblicity to "Point Rationing" but the experience of Wartime England has shown that housewives will look to their grocers to help them buy with Point Stamps . . . Here are seven simple points our customers will have to know when using Ration Book No. 2: Those who choose to buy processed 'foods with a low point value will be. able to buy more of the articles in the same rationed group.
