The ration coupons bearing these
point values will be distributed in a
nation-wide registration beginning
Monday. One adult of each family
will be able to get the ration books,
known as War Ration Book Number
2, from a nearby schoolhouse or other
public place by exhibiting the Num-
ber 1 ration books already teld by
his family. The Number 1 books now
are being used for sugar, coffee and
Many newsprinters are printing
copies of a "consumer declaration"
which will serve as the application
blank for the new ration books.
Householders are urged by OPA to
*~p these from their papers or ob-
tain copies from their ration board
and to fill them out Sunday in prep-
aration for the registration.
Must Report Excess
The form requires each family to
report tle number of cans (over 8
ounces) it has in excess of five for
each member of the family. Families
whih report an excess will lose from
tWeir new ration books one 8-point
stamp for each excess can.
Consumers must fill out the form
even if they do not have more than
ive cans per person.
In answer to other questions, OPA
said that people who do not use
canned goods or have a large stock
tiiat could last -for many months are
not required -to apply for Ration
Book Number 22 but would be wise to
apply anyway because the same book
will be used to ration meat. The meat
rationing date has not been set but
eficials hope to start it about March
To Even Distribution
Another question was why families
living in the country or other iso-
lated places and accustomed to keep-
ing large stocks of canned goods orr
hand will be "penalized" by the de-
duction of 8-point stamps for every
can over 5 per person. OPA's answer
is that the deduction is "not a pen-
4lty," and merely a means of even-
ing up the distribution of limited
supplies of canned goods among peo-
ple who do and don't have large
In this connection OPA reminded
consumers that regardless of how
many excess cans they have, they
cannot lose more than half of their
ration points. Also, the agency said,
no one need give up his excess cans
since the deductions will square him
with the government.
OPA also cautioned against count.
ing cans of canned fish and canned
meat, sale of which was suspended
Wednesday night. Canned fish and
sanned meat will not be rationed un-
til meat is rationed and need not be
sounted at the present time.

Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, chairman of
the University, War Board, said in
announcing the details of the cele-
bration that the purpose of this tour
is to allow the service men to see
where the implements they fight with
come from and how they are made.
The two jeeps and other modern
fighting equipment which the soldiers
will bring along are to be placed on
exhibition at the corner of North
University and State Street, and on
the courthouse lawn.
Ann Arbor sailors, marine3, sol-

War Brings New Importance
To Bureau of Visual Education

Buyers' Panic

Despite Riisli in Detroit

One of the least publicized but
most widely useful departments on
campus is the Bureau of Visual Edu-
cation of the University Extension
Service. Begun in 1937 to accommo-
date schools and organizations in
Michigan with educational films, the
department has grown to a new sta-
ture with the advent of the war and
the addition of many war films to
the "film library."
At the time of its incorporation
into the University Extension Serv-
ice, the department had some 80
films of a rather limited nature, but
since that time the number of films
has grown to some 1,500, covering
approximately 800 subjects.
Films To University ,
Other than supplying films for
schools and organizations through-
out the state, the Bureau supple-
ments various departments on cam-
pus, such as the geology, geography
departments, supplying them with
films to use in connection with their
At the present time one of the
most important services that the de-
partment has to offer is to supply
films on all phases of the war effort,1
such as agriculture and the war, ci-
vilian defense, war production, and
films on the good neighbor policy.
Government Released
These films are released to the
Bureau by such government offices
as the Office of War Information,
the Department of Agriculture, the
Office of Civilian Defense, and the
Coordinator Inter-American Affairs
Some of the latest films to be
added. to the library are from the
Office of Civilian Defense and in-

elude "A New Fire Bomb," and "The
Work of the Rescue Unit." Latest
Office of War Information films are
"Dover," "Japanese Relocation," and
"Negro Colleges in Wartime."
In order to facilitate the use of the
film library, a "Film Utilization
Guide" was compiled under the di-
rection of Ford L. Lemler, Director
of the Bureau of Visual Education
now on leave with the United States
Office of Education.
To acquaint students and the fac-
ulty with various phases of the war
effort and with the type of films
being released and circulated by the
Office of, War Information at the
present time, a series of Sunday eve-
ning programs is being planned by
the Bureau with the assistance of the
students on the Manpower Corps.

Michigan students haven't joined
the race to buy clothing that Detroit
merchants report has trebled their
sales and swamped their counters in
the last two weeks.
Buyers' panic, in spite of Donald
Nelson's assurance there will be no
general rationing of clothing, boosted
sales all over Detroit, but State Street
clothiers said yesterday that sales
have been uniform, except in a few
scattered cases, since 1943 began.
Men are demanding a few more
shirts, women are concentrating
their buying on spring suits, but Ann
Arbor clothing merchants say stu-
dents generally are taking the situa-
tion very calmly.
Only evidences of a buyers' spree
on State Street cropped up after the
shoe freezing order of last week, but
demand for clothing was down to
normal inside of two days, merchants
Sellers conjecture that most Ann
Arbor men are staying off their buy-
ing with the prospect of Army Issue
clothing very near.
They think that Michigan students
don't have money burning in their
pockets, as do many prospective buy-
ers in war industry areas, and that
factor plays a good part in keeping
down demand.
