ANDERSON Secretary of Agriculture ‘ IT is just as important now as when fats and oils were rationed to save and turn in every bit of used kitchen fat. Used fats continue to be one of our most important sources of supply for the manufacture of soap and for other industrial uses. It may be many months before we can obtain adequate supplies of imported fats and oils for these uses.'Meanwhile, housewives can help prevent soap shortages by turning in used fats, and dealers can help by continuing collections.” WE’RE STILL far below the mini mum requirements in our supply of industrial fats. Any letup in saving used fats will lower this supply...may mean less soap, for your used fats are needed to help make soap. Here’s what you as a housewife can do! * EVERY DROP of used fats you save helps the soap supply... helps bring back more soap to your dealer’s shelves sooner. So keep on your fat-salvage job—help yourself get more soaps. And remember, you get 4c a pound when you turn in used fat to your butcher.
