in a new era. We are getting in-
creased data and new instruments
practically unheard of before the war,

has brought results.

OPA Increases
Ration Values
WASHINGTON, March 28-()-
The OPA tonight increased pork ra-
tion point values to spread small sup-
plies more evenly, shortly after Sen-
ate investigators tossed back to OPA
the packers' phase of the meat short-
age problem.
The boost of one or two points a
pound on most pork cuts and pork
products will become effective next
Sunday. Price Administrator Ches-
ter Bowles said an estimated five per
cent less pork will be available for
rationing in April than in March and
the point increases are necessary to
aid in getting a better distribution.
Increases also were ordered for
lard, shortening, margerine, salad
and cooking oil. Point values for
all cuts of beef, lamb, veal and but-
ter will remain unchanged.
The Senate Agricultural Commit-
tee, investigating the civilian meat
shortage, a short time earlier check-
ed back to OPA the packers' demands
for "a small reasonable profit."
After hearing "Big Four" packer
Thomas E. Wilson reiterate the tes-
timony of other meat producers that
OPA price ceilings are driving the
industry into bankruptcy or govern-
ment control, the Senate Agriculture
Committee dropped that phase of
their inquiry.
Chairman Thomas (D.-Okla.) told
the committee that attorneys for
the packers and the OPA will try to
work out an agreement. The com-

Helen Titus, pianist, will present3
the final recital in a series of School

Brahms. "Two Florentine Sketches",
"Etude in C Sharp" by Pattison and
Shepherd's "Second Sonata" will
comprise the remainder of the pro-
SRA Coffee Hour.
Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth G. Hance
will be guests of honor at the third
weekly Lane Hall Coffee Hour from
4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Joyce Seigan,
social chairman of S.R.A. announced

visor to Student Town Hall.

TCes Dames'
"Ces Dames aux Chapeaux Verts,"
a French comedy by Albert Acre-
mant. will be presented May 2 at
8:30 p.m. at the Lydia Mendelssohn
This year's production marks the
39th year, consecutive since 1907,
that the Cercle Francais has pre-
sented a French play.
A psychological study of four old
maids and an old bachelor, "Ces
Dames aux Chapeaux Verts" shows
the narrow-mindedness of such peo-
ple and the tragedy of their frus-
trated life. When a young Parisienne
orphan is placed in their custody,
new ideas and sunshine enter into
their figuratively dark home. As the
curtain falls in the last act, the
young girl is betrothed to a former
sweetheart whom she met in a weal-
thier period of her life, and the youn-
gest of the old maids is about o
marry the old bachelor.
This charming prologue in three
acts met with great success in France
when it made an uninterrupted iun
tor one year at the Theatre Sarah
Bernhardt in Paris.
