Housewives are urged to destroy
all food ration stamps that have
been declared invalid the Office of
Price Administration said today.
Use of these stamps by consumers
as well as acceptance of them by
retailers, is a violation of ration
ing regulations, OPA said.
At the same time OPA explained
that red ration tokens continue
good and housewives may use them
for buying- meats-fats. Grocers
will continue to give them to house
wives as change for the red 10
Blue ration tokens, however, have
not been good since October 1 and,
therefore, cannot be used for cann
ed fruits and vegetables. They are
no longer needed as change for the
10-point blue ration stamps used
for processed foods because point
values for these items are set in
multiples of ten.
Ration stamps which were invali

Office of Price Administration for
tightening and increasing the ra
tion systeni on fbods. Cancellation
of unspent ration stamps validated
prior to Decembeir 1 was done, OPA
said, because supplies are just not
large enough to permit spending
both 1945i ration stamps and all
those unspent in 1944. Stamps is
sued for this past December and
for January are to provide for cur
rent needs. Major facts on the
supply situation are:
Sugar The home canning ration
this year is severely tightened and
coupons for no more than 700,000
tons can be issued in the 1945
season, compared with 1,150,000
tons last season. This reflects an
excessive use of 1944 supplies and
the fact that 1945 will see no more
than 5,400,000 tons available for
civilians as against 6,100,000 in
1944, 5,700,000 in 1943 and 7,350,000
Butter Civilian creamery stocks
are at such a low level that sup
plies in the hands of wholesalers
and retailers musjt be increased if
a fairer distribution is to be ob
tained. The total available for
1945 is expected to be smaller than
Processed Foods Needs of the
armed forces for canned fruits are
expected to remain heavy and mili
tary procurement needs and set
aside requirements for canned veg
etables from the 1944 pack were
bigger than in 1943. The supply
now on hand must be made to last
until the next canning season. The
present stocks of commercially
canned vegetables on December 1,
1944, was about 56 per cent of the
quantity on hand for civilians 12
Meat Prospects at present are
for supplies during the first three
months of this year are about 15
per cent below the last three
months of this year are about 15
per cent below the last three
months of 1944 and also the first
quarter of last year. This applies
to both rationed and unrationed
kinds. Hog production available
for slaughter is about 21 per cent
below a year ago.
Says OPA: "Food rationing in
effect, must be placed on a pay-as-
you-go basis. During the next few
months, and perhaps throughout
1945, ration stamps will be only
good on the basis of the supplies
that can be made available to ci
vilians without upsetting the fair
est distribution obtainable. Short
ages in some items, such as butter,
may continue. The choice and va
riety of meats and canned fruits
and vegetables may continue to
be spotty .in some cities. But as
closely as possible point values will
be maintained to assure the shopper
a reasonable choice of rationed
HOW FARMERS CAN GET
Farmers who need lumber for
emergency maintenance and repair
of arm dwellings may now apply
to the War Food Administration
for preference ratings instead of
to War Production Board field
offices. WPB's Office of Civilian
Requirements has transferred to
WFA 15,000,900 board feet of lum
ber from its allotment for the first
quarter of 1945 to provide lumber
for emergency maintenance and re
pair of farm dwellings.
FEWER TRUCKS TO BE MADE
Less than one fourth of the motor
trucks estimated as needed to meet
essential war and civilian trans
portation requirements during 1945
will be produced and distributed to
commercial operators, the Office of
Defense rTansportation announced
today. The estimate is based on
the 945 civilian truck program ap
proved by the War Production
Board. Increased demands by the
armed services for all types of
motor transport, was given as the
chief reason for the severe reduc
tion. -. The total authorized pro
gram amounts to 186,792 light,
medium, Jtighjt heavy and heavy
heavy trucks, or 24.1 per cent of
