With short sleeves in a formal summer wedding she might have lace gloves to cover her arms. She wears her engagement diamond on her right hand so that her ring-finger on the left hand is free for her wedding band. The wedding ring is always placed next to the palm "closest to the heart." After the ceremony she returns the diamond engagement ring to the same finger atop the wedding band. 5L T.: Instead of place cards for your fun party, why not use inexpensive trinkets to indicate each guest's hobby such as a fish line, toy musical instruments, etc. ?

Do you realize 'that these are the highest prices your butcher can and will charge? Or, have you been too busy counting ration points to see anything new? On April 1 the Office of Price Administration fixed definite price ceilings per pound on practically every common cut of pork sold at retail. There are two ceiling prices for each cut of meat sold. The small retail butcher has - i one maximum larger and chain stores another c e i 1-i n g, slightly lower. If price ceil-i n ss have I! " -v jl seemed con-tj i yJ fusing up to iL""V Jk n now thin tipw regulation by the OPA should help to simplify mat- Voellmig ters, at least, as far as pork is concerned. The Government plans to set similar ceilings on lamb, veal, mutton and beef in the near future. Instead of a number of varying maximum prices in your neighborhood there will now be only two. OPA has informed every retailer exactly what his highest price on pork may be. You should find them listed in your shops where you can see them easily. Controls Only Highest Price DO THE NEW price ceilings mean that sliced smoked ham with the bone in will cost you 56 cents per pound in every small independent stores? . . . Or, 54 cents in every chain store ? . . . That there will never be any bargains? Does this mean shopping in more than one store is futile? Of course not. The new price ceilings on pork control only the highest price the dealer may charge. He may sell them as cheaply as he wants to. . . . There is no law against it. Many of the market men will no doubt have sales and bargains which you can purchase if you have coupons as well as pennies to spend. An interesting note in the new regulation for homemakers who want to keep accurate account of their food expenditures is the ruling about receipt or sales slips. Upon request, any customer must now be given a receipt showing the date, the name and address of the shop, the name and weight of each pork cut sold and the price it cost. Ration Board Will Help ANY QUESTIONS which you have to ask about the price ceilings can be answered, OPA says, by the Community Service Committee of your local war price and rationing board. Don't forget that tomorrow, April 17, is the last day to get in your recipes for the present Ration Recipe Contest, "Main Dishes Made with Eggs."

J"r Press Photo The Office of Price Administration has fixed a ceiling in cents per pound on the price of practically every common pork cut sold at retail.

The ceilings should be posted in every shop where they can easily be seen and read by the consumer. $10. S6 and $1. will be announced April 24.

This Week's War-Time Menus Every Friday the Tower Kitchen plant a week of healthful dinner menus to help Detroit women with their wartime food problems.

MODERATE SUPPLY: Apples, lemons, pineapples, strawberries, beans, beets, celery, cucumbers, onions, rhubarb, radishes, rutabagas, shallots, spinach, tomatoes. LIGHT SUPPLY: Bananas, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, mushrooms, parsnips, peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips. MEATS: The wholesale meat situation is unchanged this week except in the case of pork on wrhich the general supply has increased a little. Dealers state that the intimation that ceilings may be placed on livestock has stimulated shipments of live hogs and as a result stockyards' prices have dropped 90 cents per hundred-weight since a week ago. There are still good supplies of sausage and loaf meats available on which point values have been reduced recently. BUTTER, EGGS AND CHEESE: Wholesale dealers report a little improvement in the supply of butter and eggs this week. No change in prices have occurred, however. Cheese is still in moderate supply but dealers report sales somewhat slow since rationing started. POULTRY: Some of the wholesale poultry dealers, who have not been operating the past two weeks because their fixed ceiling prices have not allowed them sufficient profit to operate without loss, are reported to be considering the handling of their receipts at retail. Two carloads of live poultry have been received this weel: and it is understood that the bulk will be sold alive direct to consumers. This plan will allow the wholesaler an additional margin of about 6 cents per pound. FISH: Since meat rationing began demand has increased sharply for fish. Therefore, the moderate offerings that are coming in now do not last long. This week's supply of fresh fish consists mainly of blue pike and perch from Lake Erie and yellow pike from Lake Huron. Consumers who want low price fish should find mullet and sheephead in fairly good supply this weekend.
