Still Goodly Number of Unrationed
While the over-all food rationing
program has been tightened by re
storation of point values to five vege
tables and application of points to 85
per cent of the total meat supply,
there remain a substantial number of
foods for which rationing points are
not needed, states OPA. All frozen
and dried fruits and vegetables, fruit
spreads, lard, soups, baked beans and
baby foods along with fresh fruits
and vegetables, cereals, eggs, poul
try and fish are unrationed. In the
meat list no point value is attached
to beef hearts, sweetbreads and beef
tongue; lamb is unrationed on such j
cuts as breast and flank, shanks of
all grades, patties, steaks, chops and j
roasts in utility grade, hearts, liver,
sweetbreads and tongue; all grades
of mutton are point-free; veal is un
rationed in such classes of cuts as
breast, flank meat, neck, shank and
heel meat of all grades in utility
grade and lower for steaks, chops and
roasts, and also hearts , sweetbreads
and tongue. No points are needed to
buy pork fat backs, clear plates,
hocks, jowls, knuckles, regular plates
and bacon ends, hearts, liver and
tongue. A number of sausage types
are also on the no point list.
Fuel Oil Warning Issued
Cold homes later on this winter,
with no extra rations available, will
be the inevitable result of present
over-consumption of fuel oil, OPA
warns. The request to conserve sup
plies came from the rationing agency
following widespread indications that
many householders have dipped too
heavily into their fuel oil rations and
are burning oil at a rate considerably
in excess of what they should have
used up to the present point of the
11)44-1945 heating season.
Background For Farm Draft
' Background of the Selective Ser
vice action requesting draft boards
to reclassify and induct, to the full
extent permitted by law, men in the
age group 18 through 25 years who
hold agricultural deferments is con
tained in a letter written to Maj.
Gen. Lewis B. Hersey, Director of
Selective Service by the Director of
War Mobilization and Reconversion,
James F. Byrnes. Pointing out that
the Tydings Amendment to the Se
lective .Service Act does not give the1
agricultural worker absolute exemp-
tion, and was not intended to, Di-i
rector Byrnes states: "The Secre
taries of War and Navy have advised
me jointly that the calls from the
Army and Navy to be met in the
coming year will exhaust the eli
gibles in the 18 ana K year age
group at an early date. The Army
anu ivavy Delieve it essential to tne
effective prosecution of the war to
induct more men in this age group.
Other than the men becoming 18
years of age, the only remaining sub
stantial source in this age group is
in the 364,000 men now deferred be
cause of agricultural occupation.
You have further advised me that if
this group is not available, you must
call into the service occupationally
deferred men in the next age group,
26 years and older, most of whom are
fathers. The chairman of the War!
Production Board, Mr. Krug, advises
me that the loss of these men would
make it extremely difficult, if not im
possible, to meet critical war de
mands. Moreover, these older men
would not meet the expressed needs
of the Army and Navy."

nice to read about Hertford and its
local news news perhaps insignific

important to a far-away soldier. To
guys like me, a day never passes that

surprised to find the English so
backward backward in every sense

they seldom fail. As Americans in
this field, we should give them
keener competition. Our children
