Weekly War Review For North Carolina Gasoline Appeals?Farmers awn ing trucks who wish to appeal their mileage allowances under their cer tificates of war necessity should see their USDA war boards, according to State OPA Rationing -Officer Hance Hofler. No Fireworks, Please?Christmas should be celebrated without fire works, says the North Carolina Of fice of Civilian Defense. Powder used in fireworks can be used to bet ter advantage on Japs and Nazis, says OCD. Rations During Holidays?Persons who sftnd the Christmas holidays away uum their present place of abode should take their ration books with them if they hope to get sugar or coffee while away, says John K. Simmons, State OPA food rationing officer. This applies to college stu dents who have turned over their books to their college dining halls. Four Face OPA Charges?Bernice Godwin, Lamar Johnson, J. E. Al len and Earl Raynor, all of Dunn, have been charged by the Office of Price Administration with unlawful possession of gasoline ration cou pons. Godwin and Johnson are charged also with unlawful trans fer. Rationing in Tarheelia?3,346,316 North Carolinians received War Ra tion Book No. 1 during the initial regstration for sugar rations. Hold ers of Book No. 1 will be eligible to receive Book No. 2 which will be distributed early in 1943. Only 12, 77J No. 1 or sugar stamp sheets were issued in this county during the first registration. Idle Tire Turn-ins?The Charlotte warehouse of the Defense Supplies Corporation has received 172,061 tires under the "idle tire" turn-in plan. Nearly 8,000,000 tires have been received by warehouses throughout the nation. In Butte, Mont., traffic fines may be paid in scrap?25 to 50 pounds. & * War As It Relates To Home Front Is Reviewed for Week (Continued from pafe one) have had to file with their local boards ceiling prices on fewer than 200 items of food, clothing, furni ture, hardware, and fuel?all of them of greatest importance in the family expense budget. If extra time and labor are involved in these opera tions, they pay immense dividends in the billions of dollars saved by consumers. And everyone is a con sumer. Replacements Must Be Women Employers of labor, on the other hand, must keep detailed records of their current labor supply in order to meet production schedules?rec ords as thoroughly itemized as those for a military "task force." Next year it is estimated, one out of every five men now employed in war plants will go into military service. A plan ?known as the "manning tables" system ? has been worked out so that this can be done without slow ing war production. The plan involv ed a listing of 35 necessary war ac tivities and industries, a list of neces sary jobs within each of these in dustries, and preparation of sched ules in each department of a war plant or war-essential service show ing just how long it will take to train a new worker to replace one taken into service. Replacements must be women? they will be needed to fill about 30 per cent of all war jobs?older men and others not subject to the draft, handicapped persons, and those who previously have been denied em ployment because of racial or other prejudice. Under this plan, war workers who would be called into service may be deferred until their places are filled by trained substi tutes. But in order to avoid further over-crowding in war industry areas it is important that each locality make use of its own local people for war work. Rural workers seeking war jobs should apply to the near est office of the U. S. Employment Service if there are no local war in dustries, so that they can be sent to places where there is the least con gestion. Planning Better Use of Labor In the meanwhile, more efficient use of our present labor force is be ing developed through the work of labor-management committees in 1,700 war plants?by means of pro grams for training and upgrading workers and a multitude of time-sav ing operations. A labor-management group, representing the railroads, is working on a plan for temporarily shifting labor from one road to an othe to meet shortages, and another plan calls for organizing a mobile PENNIES WANTED!

For there were only 28,050 Mr. Jones in the last war, so, who knows how many in this one? John Jones doesn't help too much, for | there were thousands of Johns, and hundreds of those Johns had wives named Mary, which wasn't much of a help when the War Department tried tracing down a Jones. If you think there were a lot of Jones', consider then the Johnstons, 53,200 strong, 2.000 of whom were1 named William. And the Smiths with j 51,900, among whom were 3,412 Wil lies; the Browns with 48,000; the Williams, 47,000; the Andersons, 22, 000; the Walkers, 18,500, and the Mil lers 2,500. What's in a name? Not much, ac cording to the Army records, if it isn't accompanied by a serial num ber. And the War Department con tinues to stress the importance of re membering those serial numbers. When you think of that man in the service, think of his serial number too, for without it he might not get his mail and you might not get your allotment, according to Colonel John H. Bush, Army Emergency Relief Of ficer, headquarters, Fourth Service Command. Colonel Bush pointed out the many cases of mix-ups in allotment and re lief checks due to improper state ments of names, serial numbers, rank and addresses, and he stated that much time would be saved the individuals and the government if more care were taken in these mat ters.
