: RATION BOARDS The fact that price control, the result in part of the functioning of the. local ration boards, has saved every member of every ,|m erican family from $180 to $6£< in living costs, and $530 in war debts and taxes, was stressed at the reg ular meeting of the Junior Cham ber of Commerce Tuesday, when members gave a formal vote of appreciation for the services rend ered by officials of the ration board to the community. Continu ed cooperation with the efforts of the board was pledged by the members. Reference was made to “Hold ing the Home Front in 1C42-44,” a recent OPA report endorsing the work of the ration boards. Among the favorable facts stress ed by the report is the point that 24,231,000 out of 29,490,000 cars are still doing their war jobs, despite the scarcity of tires and' gasoline. Because buses and trains can car ry only 15 percent of the war work ers throughout the country to their jobs, -private conveyances must carry 85 per cent of the load. The considerable savings for in dividuals which have been effect ed through the functioning of the ration boards, and through volun tary savings by citizens, may be seen from the following chart: Item 1918 Price Now Optional Sugar, 1 lb. _$ .26- .07 Potatoes, 15 lb. — 1.54- .61 Lard, 1 lb. _ .42_ .19 Navy Beans. 1 lb— .19- .10 Coffee, 1 lb. _ .49_ .30 Corn Meal, 1 lb. _ .08- .06 Wheat Flour, 10 lb- .88_ .62 Fresh Eggs, doz. __ .92- .63 Whole Ham, 1 lb _ .69- .36 Rice, 1 lb. _ .19- .13 CHARLOTTE, Jan. 4. —(A5)— L.

They raised to 1,500 the number of individual sorties they have flown against the same targets. Tonight the German long wave radio left the air abruptly, possi bly signaling a new attack on the continent by the RAF. In the morning alone, 450 Brit ish and American medium bomb ers, including 200 Marauders, with 300 fighters, struck the French coast and in the afternoon 500 more bombers and fighters cross ed the Channel to continue the as sault. The army did not specify the heavy bomber target, but said the escorting fighters made one of their deepest penetrations into northwest Germany. This would mean the target was at least as distant as Kiel about 1,000 miles round trio- which was bombed by escorted formations last Dec. 13.

Ii means also gravely increased danger to Ger man forces further south and east in the great bend of the river. The Russian soutnward drive from the Kiev bulge to Volodarka or beyond which croke the Nazi hold on Belaya Tserkov seems aided primarily rail and road networks. It is already tending to pinch Nazi supply and escape lines serving the depths of the bend and raises an expectation that a matched Russian attack in the south to close the great Dnieper sack on the foe may come at any moment. The Odessa - Nikolaev - Cherkasi railroad, spanning the base line of the Dnieper bend, is the vital lat eral communications for the in vaders cast of it. It is menaced at both ends. A Russian crossing of the Dnieper at its mouth to take Kherson and push on to the Nikolaev, 40 miles to the north and east on the Bug estuary has been in the making for weeks. Berlin' announced many days ago evacuation of a bridgehead on the lower bank of 1he Dnieper op posite Kherson. The wide lower reaches of the river were freezing over then, the Nazi announcement said, rendering Kherson vulnerable to attack. Since then the freeze line in southwestern Russia has advanced. Dnieper ice is now or soon will be heavy enougn to sup. port the weight of heavy guns and tanks. That is what the Russians have been waiting for apparently, to begin another dangerous en. trapment movement. -V BUY WAR BONDS-STAMPS RED-ITCHY-SCALY ECZEMA Effective Home Treatment Promptly Relieves Torture!
