The North Carolina State Board
of Health feels that the importance
of this material justifies getting

fore the largest possible number
of the State's population.
These Questions and answers fol

Q. Shouldn't such things as age,
kind of work and climate condi
tions be considered in sharing al
lowances? A. The allowance of 2 pounds
of meat per week per person is
plenty for the average civilian in
any climate, especially when it is
considered that such meats as poul
try, fish, liver, sweetbreads, tongue,
and kidneys are included in the
sharing plan. Age is considered
In the sharing plan. Persons
under 12 should not exceed 1
pounds per week; Under 6, 3-4
pound per week.
Q. What will be the result of
meat sharing on prices of meat
A. Meat sharing will naturally
increase the demand for meat al
ternatives, but price ceilings will
protect the consumer against in
creased cost of the substitutes.
Q. If people save meat, will the
armed forces get it and will they
use it economically?
A. The armed forces are sure to
get their meat, because a govern
ment order limits the amount of
meat delivered to civilians to a
point which will assure that
enough will be left at the process
ing plants to provide for the needs
ing allies. The purpose of the
of our armed forces and our fight
sharing plan is to provide for fair
distribution, of the civilian supply
among the 128 million Americans
not in uniform. There is less
waste in army cooking than in
many home kitchens.
Q. How will company over week
ends be taken care of?
A. When people eat away from
home, they should reduce consump
tion at home accordingly. Those
who entertain guests are expected
to increase meat purchase accord
ingly within the sharing limita
tions. Q. Will the "Share the Meat"
and meat rationing programs re
duce the price for the livestock
A. "Share the Meat" or meat
rationing programs would not re
duce the, price for livestock. Total
demand army, navy, lend-lease,
and civilian will continue to run
ahead of the supply for a long
period in the future. Further
more, as our armed forces grow
in size, and as they advance, they
liberate hungry people living in
Axis-held territory. Both for mili
tary and humanitarian reasons,
these new allies must be fed.
Secretary Wickard is asking a
10 per cent increase in pork pro
duction, despite the probability of
Q. Will the meat farmers raise
and butcher for their own use
be rationed? How can it be done?
A. No decisions have been an
nounced about meat rationing or
its effect on farmers. Farm fam
ilies are now asked to do their
part in sharing the meat by limit
ing consumption to 2H pounds per
week per adult though they have
butchered their own animals for
Q. Shouldn't farmers be permit
ted to raise and butcher as much
meat as they need?
A. Home raising and butchering
of meat is encouraged, because it
saves transportation and storage.
The request to the farm family
is to use the home-grown meat at
the sharing rate 2 pounds per
week per adult. Farmers can help
also by selling supplies in excess
of this amount.
Q. Will farmers be permitted to
sell some of the meat they butcher?
A. Farmers are asked not to
slaughter and sell more meat than
in the same period in 1941. Addi
tional supplies should be sold as
live animals so that they will go
packing plants that supply meat
for our armed forces and our al
Q. What will be done about this
situation? At butchering time
farmers have much fresh meat.
They can some, but have spareribs,

Eight questions which every
rural homemaker should ask her
self about the war are:
1. Am I growing food, fiber and
feed for home and war use?
2. Am I taking the best care of
my machinery, my equipment,
clothes and other useful things?
3. Am I buying less and buying
4. Am I buying my share of war
savings stamps and bonds every
time we sell farm products?
5. Am I doing my part of the
biddlings, and other fresh meat
in excess of the 2 Vi pound share.
They eat much meat for two or
A, Farm families should not al
low meat they have butchered to
spoil merely to keep within the
2 hjt pound limit in any one period,
but should even out their consump
tion over the year to the 2V4 pounds
per person per week rate.
Q. Does sharing mean that farm
families who store a great amount
of meat must put away less and
keep within the 2 pound stand
ard? .";,'V- "
A. Farm families; should be
encouraged to store as much meat
as. they need to supply their fam
ilies and hired hands with 2
pounds per person per week for the
year. Supplies in excess of this
amount should be sold.
Q. Doesn't the sharing by farm
ers who raise and butcher their
own meat really mean decreased
meat production which is in con
flict with the war program of in
creased meat production?
A. Sharing by farmers who
raise and butcher their own meat
animals should not decrease pro
duction. There will be good de
mand for any meat, or meat ani
mals in excess of the amounts
farm families should eat.
Q. Must farmers declare their
meat on hand when rationing be
gins? A. The rationing program has
not yet been Worked out.

in cooking vegetables be counted
A. Yes. Pork is one of the meats
for which limited consumption is
Q. How . will sharing apply to
farmers who have hired hands
and seasonal labor?
A. Hired hands and seasonal la
bor should be counted as members
of the family in order that meat
may be shared fairly among all
work at home and on the farm?
6. Has niy family been kept in
good health during the war?

Mrs. Coman Kirkpatrick and

Your gloves, handbag, your um
brellaand other accessories like
these are riot the most important
: terns of your wardrobe, but they
deserve extra care these days.
Clothing specialists suggest that
the habit of losing gloves and um
brella is a good one for American
women to break. Buy a glove
holder to attach to your pocket
book if you are inclined to lose
your gloves, or sew a name tape
on the inside seam.
Take a tip from the sales per
son and put your gloves on just
as she tries them on you: Ease fin
gers on first; then thumb and palm.
Turn rings so the settings are
toward the palm of your hand.
The best way to take most gloves
off is to loosen each fingertip, turn
the cuff back over the fingers and
draw the gloves off. Suede gloves
are an exception ; try to work
them off easily without turning
back the cuff or pulling the finger
tips. After you take off a pair of
gloves, pull them gently into shape,
blow into the fingers, and lay them
in tissue paper in a flat box.
Don't let your gloves get too
dirty before you clean them.
Watch for rips in your gloves
and mend them promptly. Always
use cotton thread in sewing leather.
Silk thread will cut the leather
and pull out.
