Home soap-making is an indirect blow at our armies in the f.eld.
For they are utterly dependent upon the steady flow of munitions
which, in turn, depends upon the production of glycerine from
salvaged waste fats. Remember, too, that not only the men in the
front lines would suffer from a shortage of fats, but also the
wounded ana tne sick in our
military hospitals For glycerine is
Ortoa 0. Mana
an essential in
gredient in the
and burn jellies
which may be
so essential to
used as a base
for the sul
are so valuable
Few persons realize that a short
age of fats might well be as dis
astrous to our war effort as a
series of major defeats. However
vast otfr manufacture _ of arma
ments, whatever all-time* records of
war production we achieve — all
will 4)e useless, unless we have
enough fats to make the munitions
for our weapons. Fats are the
source of most glycerine, and glyc
erine is a basic essential in the
manufacture of munitions.
If this realization were general,
we should not see patriotic Amer
ican women making their own soap
and thus depriving their country,
at a crucial hour, of the chief
source of her munitions supply
In recent articles, I have urged
the saving of waste fats by the
housewife, and their delivery to a
local meat dealer, from whom they
are collected for the Government’s
fat salvage campaign. I have
warned of the vital need that Amer
ican housewives everywhere co
perate with this campaign. Today,
With the turning point of the war
apparently at hand, and our own
ever deeper involvement, the same
warning applies with double force.
Home soap - making operates
against our cause in two evil ways.
It takes waste fats directly out of
the Government’s fat salvage
campaign, and it also decreases
the manufacture of commercial
soap, which is the largest single
source of the nation’s glycerine
supply. Therefore, it is not an
exaggeration to say that the home
making of soap tends to sabotage
our war effort At this time, there
is no patriotic ground upon which
the practice can be defended, nor
is there any basis of common
sense for it
Commercial soap is inexpensive
and generally excellent in quality.
Homemade soap is false economy
It is likely to contain free lyes,
highly damaging to skin and
fabrics. Thus it is in reality far
from being an economical product.
The apparent initial saving of a
few pennies is likely to be more
than offset by the damage done to
bodies and to clothing It is also
costly in its assault upon self
esteem. No woman who values
good looking hands should subject
them to the ravages of home-made
One would like to believe that
every American woman, once she
knows the facts, will cooperate
witb'lier country and its defenders
in their hour of need. Most of us
would hesitate to believe that any
American woman would trade her
opportunity to do this, for a pos
sible saving of a few pennies. If
we are right, home soap-making

THE OLD JUDGE SAYS...
" The more / read about it, Judge, the more I
realize the tactics and requirements of this war
are as different from the one I fought in 25
years ago as night is from day."
“ Yes, and I can give you an example of
how true that is, Fred. In World War I the
chief uses of alcohol produced for war pur
poses were fount} in smokeless powder, medi
cal supplies and chemical warfare materials.
In this war the need for this product is far
more vital because it is also used as a fuel to
propel torpedoes, to make shatterproof glass
for airplane windshields and instrument cov
ers, to make lacquers used in camouflaging
equipment and as a base for synthetic rubber
needed for tires, gas masks, paratroop equip
ment and dozens of other things.
“Every time 1 think of it, Fred, I realize
how fortunate we were in having a beverage
distilling industry in existence when war
broke out... ready and willing to convert
100% to the production of this critically
needed war product. I’m mighty sure boot
leggers wouldn’t have."
