At the State...
A vivid love story, told against a
background of the fall and occupa-
tion of Paris, forms the plot of "Re-1
union in France", starring Joan1
Crawford with Philip Dorn and John;
Wayne, opening at the State today.
In the picture Miss Crawford is
presented as a Parisienne of the{
days immediately following the Ger-
man occupation of the French capi-
tal. Dorn,, ayoung Frenchman, is
her sweetheart whom she rejects be-j
cause of his seeming sympathy for,
and collaboration with France's con-
querors. Wayne is a young American
member of the R.A.F., an escaped
prisoner of war, seeking his way back
to England and safety.
Produced on a convincing scale,
with authentic scenes of the flight
from Paris by the stream of fright-
ened refugees, "Reunion in France"
presents a powerful tale of love and
drama filmed against the darkest
hours of the present conflict.

Japanese battleships actually were
sunk in the great sea battle off Gua-
dalcanal in mid-November.

Meat Rations To
Be More Lenient'
Remote Areas Will Get
Canned Goods Needed
WASHINGTON, March 13.-(4")-
OPA chief Prentiss M. Brown prom-
ised today that tight ration restric-
tions on meat will be eased whenever
possible while two other developments
brightened the food outlooks.
1. The Office of Price Administra-
tion made it possible for persons liv-
ing in areas remote from grocery
stores to get canned and dried goods
they need. Sheepherders, fishermen,
forest rangers, lumbermen and others
will be issued ration coupons to cover
their requirements.
2. Secretary Ickes put forth a pro-
gram forexpanding the aid given to
producers by the bureaus of his In-
terior Department which, he said
would result in increasing the na-
tion's total supply of certain foods
within five years "by an amount suf-
ficient on a caloric basis to feed ten
million persons for one year."
Brown said that after meat ration-
ing has been in operation a week or
two he expected the supply to spread
more evenly among individual stores
and different localities.
Other soucres disclosed that the
tentative meat ration plan will pro-
vide a person with a maximum of 3.1
pounds of hamburger or, as an al-
ternative, only one and one-third
pounds of steak per week, although
the average of all type* of meat will
be two pounds. The actual rations in
most cases will be less than these
figures, however, because the same
coupon points will be needed for but-
ter, shortening and edible fats, oil,
cheese and canned fish.
Pointing out that the "flow of cat-
tle and hogs to market fluctuates day
by day and most meats and many of
the other products to be rationed are
perishable," Brown said, "in keeping
with the general policy of OPA, point
values will be liberalized whenever it
becomes possible to do so."
Meat rationing will start March
