‘ Mrs. America Meets the War
EDITOR'S NOTE: War touches every home and citizen. This
column [based on official government information and prepared
.by the Office Of. War Information, shows how the war will
affect Mrs. America and her home.
Platinum wedding rings are out
for the duration. but the new Mrs.
America's still will have gold wed
ding hands when they say “I do.”
The use of platinum in all jewelry
manufacture has been prohibited be
cause of its importance as a war
material—in munitions manufacture,
in communications equipment and
for any other industrial uses. The
order does not affect the sale of
platinum jewelry now manufactured
and in the hands of dealers and
Here's good news from the home
furnishing angle. A survey by the
Office of Price Administration re
vealed that retailers now have in
stock a sufficient supply to meet
normal shopping deands for the
next eight months. That means
you need not Ibe content with anl
odd sized rug if you want a regular:
sized floor covering. It seems that‘
rumors of a shortage of regular sized
rugs haVe been circulated. but the
CPA advised housewives that these
are unfunded. Actually, it is ex
pected that present stocks of rugs
may even last longer Ibecause pur
chases have dropped considerably.
One effect of the share-the-meat
plan probably will be the return of
the soup pot to Mrs. America’s stove;
Bone is counted in the 2% pound
per person weekly meat allotment so;
many women nxore than likely will
be using it for soup—either the bone‘
from the roast removed before the
meat is éooked or left over after the
meat is eaten. Soup bones them
selves countin the week’s allotment
even when purchased separate from
the meat. Debonlng of all meats
before cooking is suggested. . The
butcher will do the large masts,
but even the lamb, veal and pork
chops and the sirloin steaks will
yield fine material for the soup pot.

to turn in her war ration book just
the same as when a man enters the

Saving for a rainy day means just
that now that your rubbers and gal
oshes are a part of the country’s
‘wartime rubber supply. The care
itaken of rubber footwear will help
conserve dwindling supplies or this
essential material. The CPA con-1
sumer division suggests that rubber?
footwear be kept clean wlth soap
and water. other pointers to help
preserve rubbers include storing
them in a cool dark‘plaoe after stuf
fing them with paper. Be careful
not to place them near heat, and
repair rubbers at once. If mending
materials such as rubber cement or
other rubber patching materials are
not available, a shoe repair shop
usually can do the job. ‘ '

wives to keep coffee tightly closed

To maintain a soldier for a year requires the wool from 23'sheep. To raise that
much wool entails a lot of care and time. But when the wool is fully grown, a
skilled worker can shear it off the backs of 23 sheep in a little over an hour with
the aid of only a penny’s worth of PP&L's cheap electricity.
Aha when the wool gets .to the mill. another penny’s worth of PP&L’s electric
power operates the giant looms while they weave a complete uniform or
‘blank'et. Nearly 90% of America's. wool production is going to war . . . and
cheap electricity is speeding the job all along the way.
Thisis ,not‘an- nnusual example. In practically every phase of the Pacific
Northwest’s war effort cheap and dependable PP&L electricity is busily
at work 1‘ . . in shipyards and air-fields, on 12,500 farms, in hundreds of war
factories, in food processing plants and army camps.
The same low-cost electricity'that makes home life
