More Ration
Books Issued.
Than Before
WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.-(AP)-
Deputy OPA Administrator Paul M.
O'Leary estimated tonight that about
125,000,000 food ration books were
issued during this week's registration.
This was substantially above th
approximately 123,000,000 issued in
the initial registration for Ration
Book No. 1 last spring.
Registration this week, O'Leary
said, went smoothly, as a result of
the cooperation of newspapers, radio,
schools and merchants.
He reported the signing up com-
pleted throughout the country execpt
in northern Minnesota and Michigan
where bad weather delayed registra-
tion and in New York City where the
number of registrants made it impos-
sible to complete the job.

Lewis G. Christman, secretary of

has increased 20 percent since 1940
and the city has been receiving 30,
percent less food than a year ago.

Cl gue Denounces Unnecessary
Meat Situation in Ann Arbor

At the present time the residents
of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County
are being unnecessarily and unjustly
deprived of meat Ashley H. Clague,
president of the Ann Arbor Mer-
chants Association, declared yester-
"The current shortage of meat,"
Mr. Clague said, "is due entirely to
the fact that the quota allowed us is
only 70% of the total consumption of
last year. In contrast to this, the
population of this area. has grown to
such an extent that the situation is
really serious."
"The population figure which is'
used as the basis for the quota was
based on the census of 1940;" Mr.
Clague continued. Since the advent
of the war the population has in-
creased so much that the present
quota is no longer an accurate figure
by which to determine how much
meat we should receive."
"Gasoline and tire rationing have
also added difficulties to the meat

problem," Mr. Clague said. "Before
rationing, meat firms from Detroit,
Toledo, Jackson and Chicago directly
serviced the Ann Arbor area, but now
this direct supply has been discon-
tinued. Because of this factor and
the quota, Ann Arbor has had no beef
from Swift & Co. since a week ago
"Today Ann Arbor is only being
serviced by one wholesale dealer and
one branch jobber," Mr. Clague de-
There is a ceiling on the price of
meat, but it only applies to the re-
tailer and buyer. The farmer is free
to ask whatever price he wants. This
situation is another reason for our
present difficulty, Mr. Clague said.
Because of the shortage in Ann
Arbor, the Adjutant-General Corps
stationed here must get their meat
from the Quartermaster Corps of the
Army. The meat dealers in this area
have appealed for a change of the
meat quota, but no action has yet
been .taken on the request.

Initial Sehedules
Far Surpassed
Production Short-Cuts
Prove Major Factor
Associated Press Correspondent
DETROIT, Feb. 27.--(A)-The na-
tion's one-time automobile industry
is turning out war materiel at the
rate of approximately $1,000,000
worth an hour because it has been
able to telescope time on almost
every job.
By producing in minutes what for-
merly required hours and by shrink-
ing weeks into days, the industry has
been able to turn out tanks, war-
planes, aviation engines, guns and
shells far in excess of initial sched-
Peacetime Advantages
Industry engineers say these pro-
duction short-cuts will be among
the most important of the war-
learned lessons to be carried over
into peacetime manufacturing. They
may even prove a major factor in
counterbalancing in some degree
high labor and materials costs that
at present are indicated for the post-
war era.
Examples of the time-saving proc-
esses are seen in virtually every for-
mer automobile factory. The big
Pratt & Whitney air-cooled aviation
engines are rolling out of the Ford
aircraft division by the dozens every
day because the search for short-
cuts has been continuous ever since
production began.
Cooling Process Developed
It used to take an hour and a half
to grind the thin-walled engine cyl-
inder barrel for this bomber plane
engine. Engineers developed a proc-
ess for cooling both the inside and
outside of the barrel simultaneously;
now the grinding operation is per-
formed in 20 minutes.
Production of cylinder heads is
speeded to a matter of minutes by
transferring them from a furnace
temperature of 550 degrees Fahren-
heit to 75 below zero in shrinking on
the barrels, spark plug bushings and
intake and exhaust couplings.
In the same plant the completed
engine is being coupled up in the
test cell for its "green" run test in a
fraction over 29 minutes. It formerly
required between four and five hours
to haul the engine into the cell,
couple its oil pressure and fuel lines
and shroud it in a safety envelope.
