Do Not Send Men Overseas : Knives The Consumers Durable Good Division of the War Production Board today advised kinfolk of I soldiers that men in service over J seas are being adequately equipped with sheath knives in the war thea ters where they are needed. A prevalent notion that knives make appropriate gifts for men in the armed forces has resulted in many small machine shops grind ing knives from old automobile bumpers, tire irons or any other pieces of second-hand steel availa ble, WPB said. Knives of the sheath type that formerly sold for two or three dol lars are bringing from ten to fif teen. The steel may have flaws all through, but the outside has a bright polish, so off goes the knife across the water to a soldier who doesn't l^eed it. The soldier doesn't need it, be cause so soon as he reaches a com bat zone he is issued a special knife by the Army designed and tested for combat use. It’s a much better knife than the produced now being made illegally in this country. Or if he needs a knife for some other use than pombat, he can purchase one at his Post Exchange for a fraction of the amount being charged for inferior knives here. Legitimate knife manufacturers are prohibited by Order L-140-a from making knives except for the Army and Navy. / Cleaners Group Holds Meeting The Associated Cleaners met in the office of the Paris Cleaners Tuesday, November 16, 1943.
