RATION BOOK 2 READY
To Receive Applications Beginning
Monday, Feb. 22
At School Sites in County,
Where Book 2 Will Be
Delivered; Read Instruc
"" tions Carefully And Take
And Your Sugar Book
Beginning February 22nd thej
new registration for War Ration]
Book No. 2 will begin. Every]
family in Franklin County will
have to register for this War
Book. There are certain very
important things that should be
kept in mind before coming to
places of registration:
First: No War Ration Book No.
2 can be issued to an individual
??until War Ration Book No. 1
(the sugar book) has been turned
in to the person taking registra
Second: , Only one member of
the family needs to come to the!'
registration point. This one indi-l
vidual, preferably an adult, may ,
register for the whole family. ]>
Third: It is required by the/.
Laws of the United States that
every individual declare the :
number of cans on hand. This -y
does not include home canned
vegetables, fruits, fruit juices,
etc., but it does include the cans ^
that have been bought in stores. I
It should be thoroughly under- .j
stood that any hoarding or neg
lect to declare what you have on \
hand is punishable by fines or ^
improsonment. ' ? j
Fourth: It should' be again j
thoroughly understood that these |
War Ration Books No. 2 must be 0
used from March 1st and1 for q
eight months. There will be no
supplementary or additional Ra- ?
tion Books issued as in case of .
gas rationing. If you lose, sell ,
cr give away or otherwise dispose '
of your Ration Book, it will!
mean that you will be unable to ?
buy any rationed goods which
will include food stuff, shoes, a
little later on meat and, possibly
clothing. These books should be
cared for with even greater care ?
than you give your money be- ?
cause, if you loose this book it ]
will work a great hardship on,
you. Please do not imagine that
it is going to be an easy matter c
to come to the Ration Board and g
say that you have lost your ra- i
tion book and want another. It g
is going to be very difficult for r
you if you do."
Fifth: It is highly desirable e
that every one register during I
the week of February 22nd. Do]
not wait until the last day to gol
to the registration point, 4t may!
be very difficult to have yourself j
registered if you neglect this im-!.
portant and patriotic duty during J
the week of registration. !
Sixth: There will be fourteen!
places to register. If you Will i
please go to your nearest point, It
it will.be greatly appreciated bv <
Franklin County Ration Board. |
These points of registration will:*
be as follows
White people are to go to the
The Armory in Louisburg.
Gold Sand School.
Edward Best School.
ThS colored residents of Frank
lin County will go to the follow
Franklin County Training v
Youngsville (colored) School.
Frankllnton (colored) School,
Lettuce Hall School.
Seventh: Last of all, let us
consider for just a moment the
importance and necessity of this
rationing program. Every one of
us are deeply affected by this war.
There is no way of telling what
it might mean to\ us if we were
to loose this war. Every branch
of our armed forces are doing a
grand job. They have to be well
fed so that they may "be always
ready to meet the enemy when
the necessity arises. That is what
Rationing means. It means shar
ing with our armed forces and it
also means that the person with
money cannot run into a grocery
store and grab up and hoard all
the food while the rest of us slow
ly starve to death, son don't let us
complain about this Rationing
business but let us be eternally
thankful that we live in a coun
try that tries to give everyone of
us a square deal.
The Franklin County Ration
ing Board would like to take this
opportunity to express its deep
gratitude and appreciation to the
indefatigable courage and loyalty
of the teaching staff of the
Franklin County school. In the
past they have accomplished a
