Ban On Gift Of
Hams Is Lifted
The ban on gifts of hams, jel
lies, preserves and other rationed
foods was lifted today by the OPA
and a further effort made to make
rationing fit the practical needs
of American families.
This action means such gifts
will be permitted this Christmas,
the first under war-time ration
ing of many important foodstuffs,
and will assist charitable organi
zations in carrying out their tra
ditional gift-giving at this season.
In addition shoes may be given
away point-free beginning today.
Henceforth housewives may give
rationed foods bought with their
own ration stamps to other con
sumers or to charitable organiza
tions. Charitable organizations re
ceiving these rationed foods from
individuals may distribute them
to needy families without collect
ing ration stamps.
In announcing the change, Dis
trict OPA Director M. E. Raw
ling said: “There were some per
fectly good reasons for the old
rule against giving rationed goods
without collecting stamps, but
they were outweighed by the ar
guments for making this ration
ing program just as simple and
practical as possible for Ameri
can families. Under the new plan
we’re free to do as we please with
the food we buy with our ration
Rawlings said that while the
change becomes effective with the
Christmas season, it will continue
in effect indefinitely.
The gift provision does not ap
ply in any way to denltrs. jobbers,
manufacturers or other commer
cial food handlers.

Eighty-six per cent of the people who open

so they must be good. A lot of folks read
the Book Reviews and more read "Ne

opinions on current events from prominent
Nebraskans, compiled by John Bentley.
The Magazine is a panoramic review, one
of six big feature sections in a big Sunday
newspaper. It carries short stories by such
writers as Mark Hellinger, articles by na
tionally recognized authorities like Con
stantine Brown, columns by Walter Win

known local writers.
