OPA Chief Defends
Ration Cancellation
NEW YORK, Jan. 3-(R)-Recent
cancellation of food ration stamps
without previous announcement,
Price Administrator Chester Bowles
said today, "was the hardest decision
we ever had to make" but necessary
to "give everyone his fair share of
1945 supplies."
He told an American Management
Association luncheon that the coun-
try never had faced "a more criti-
cal period in our effort to hold war
time prices in line and distribute
scarce goods fairly."
Food Rationing Is Major Problem
Food rationing, he said, was but
one of five major problems which
must be solved "to protect the Amer-
ican public against scarce supplies
and inflationary prices."
Bowles said others were clothing
prices, livestock ceilings, reconversion
pricing and the absorption to a reas-
onable extent of cost increases by the
distributive trade.
Bowles Discusses Sugar Stamps
Referring to the invalidation of
sugar stamps, red points and blue
points, the APO administrator de-
"When we originally said there
would be notification in the case of
invalidation of stamps, we did not
estimate properly the number of
stamps which would accumulate for
the serious effect the spending of
these stamps could have an reduced
OPA Admits Error
"ewere wrong. However, I was
not willingto cover that mistake by
working a hardship on the great ma-
jority who need their stamps to get
their fair share of food.
"Our choice was simply this: first
we could allow the old stamps to re-
main valid and cut the value of the
new stamp, or second, we could can-
cel the old stamps and give everyone
his fair share of 1945 supplies."
Bowles said the drastic paring of
food rations was due to a steady in-
crease in consumer demands and the
continued heavy fighting in Europe.

for state representative from the
Houghton District, in which Fred

earlier announced determination to
deny Kappler a seat until the re-
count is completed.
Recount Petition Submitted
The petition of Leeman J. McCar-
ty, Kalamazoo Democrat, for recount
of the vote by which Rep. James B.
Stanley, Kalamazoo Republican, was
reelected, was submitted to a special
committee for study and Stanley was
Lieutenant-Governor Vernon J.

-WVHEN Army ballistics experts needed to photograph
speeding rockets, scientists at Bell Telephone Labora-
tories built the special "ribbon-frame" camera. Their
experience came from making high speed cameras to
study tiny movements in telephone equipment parts.
The new camera gets its name from the narrow slot
that exposes a ribbon of film at a speed of one ten-
thousandth of a second. These "stills," taken on
ordinary film, show a fast flying P-47 firing its under-
wing rocket.
This is an example of the many ways Bell System
