Service Men Must Surrender Ration Books A man or woman entering mil itary service must turn in ration books to his local War Price and Rationing Board, the Office of Price Administration emphasized i Regulations require that the ra tion books be returned to the bo ards not only in the case of per sons entering the armed services but also by civilians, such as Red Cross workers, or representatives of government agencies, or others who leave the United States for more than 30 days. The ration books of persons who have died also must be returned to local boards. These provisions of the ration ing regulations must be observed it was pointed out by OPA. Re cords of returns of the books both in areas where large numbers of men have entered the service, and as compared with records of dea ths in number of localities, have revealed that many persons fail to return the books. Use of these war ration books by others is a violation of the regulations, it was stated. Schools Asked To Convert Courses To War Time Needs The critical shortage of techni cally trained men was forcefully told by Lieut. General Brehon Son ervel recently in speaking to Am erican school men at the National Institute on Education and the War held in Washington. “We are in a hurry today as never before in the nation’s his tory,” General Somervel said, in urging the schools to make good the critical shortage of specialists and mechanics the military forces must have to wage modern war fare. He reported that out of every 300,000 men inducted our army ne eded 4,501 with training as medi cal technicians. We were getting 166, a shortage of 4,335, accord ing to General Somervel. Similarly, there was a shortage of 4, 554 radio operators, out of every 300,000 men inducted, a shor tage of 1,562 master mechanics; a shortage of 4,372 telephone and telegraph linesmen. Adding up only those specialties in which the army has found na jor shortages, there was a shortage of 838,040 in an army of 4 million men. Our job, he said, is to teach men to fight. We cannot lose si ght of this. We cannot long con tinue to take the time and facili ties needed for this job and use them on a job which could have been doen before induction of men into the army. General Somervel said the sch ools and colleges of America must become pre-induction training cen ters for our armed forces, leaving the armed forces free to train men in the combat application of the training recevei'ved in the schools and colleges. The Government labor experts declare that in 1943 farmers will look back to the 1942 labor situa tion as heaven. To meet this shor tage they say that women, older men and children will have to fill the gaps left by the men. Women have already proved that they are capable of tfoing most of the jobs on farms. Aggravating the labor shortage is the fact that skilled farm hands needed for operating modern ma chinery, have been the first to be called by the army and by in dustry. Expansion of vocational agri cultural courses to admit men be yond the draft age into Aasses on machine repair has been under taken to help meet this shortage of skilled operators. The 'vocational schools with their farm shops and agricultural clas ses are now busy giving training to both farm boys and adults in the repair of farm machinery, au tomobiles and many other ways.
