purchases with those of the American
government has been made possible, It
Is announced, by a ruling of the re
quirements division of the War Indus
tries Board. Hereafter all Red Cross
purchases will be at the same prices
and with the same priority privileges
as Rovernment purchases.

Cross dollar and the government dollar
are to be on the same footing," said

market and paying the same for its
materials as was paid by private agen
cies and Individuals."
