It will mean that her calculations in points must be right to the point. Grocers will remove stamps from War Ration Book 2 in the presence of customers. It is suggested that Mrs. America use the high value stamps first. For instance, if she selects a 10-point commodity, she should use an 8 and a 2 stamp instead of using a combination of low point stamps.

The United States Department of Agriculture and the War Production Board, agreeing that it is most essential that victory gardens be planted extensively, announce a special victory garden fertilizer to be on the market soon. It will be used for food production only. This special fertilizer will be obtainable in uniform packages of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 pounds net weight. The OPA has set ceiling prices for the new product.
