MORE FATS NEEDED NOW Small Towns And Rural Communities Asked To Help Out Acuteness in the fa situation makes increased collection of used household fats from farms and small towns imperative to help meet war and civilian needs, and State Extension services are asking cooperation from rural communities in an effort to meet these needs. The demand upon war indust- ries for themaking of munitions, medicines and many other vital war materials is based upon the supply of sufficient fats. Supplies of fats from vgetable oils from] the East Indies are still cutoff, 1 and in order to fill the order for needed fats, American house- wives are asked by their country to turn in at least 250 million pounds of used cooking fats this year. Have M,m.y Uses Used f&ts are necessary for medicinal purposes, munitions, synthletie rbber, and insect re- pellants, besides many additional military and household uses. El- even million pouvds of lubricant frgm by-products of used house- h01d fat were ud last year for dr.wing of steel bars and wire. The can of fat ttrned in by the houBewffe to the butcher goes t0 war in almost every type of army vehicle. Approximately 31 pounds are used just in making the tires and spares for one two- and one,half ton, eight wheel army transport truck. For each pound of fat turned in to mtat markets, housewives get a. two-pot bonus, Sources of used kitchen fats include drip- !)i rom roasting pans-- and 'broilers, residual grease after fry- ing, grease skimmed from stews or me,t-base soups, used lard, vegetable shortenings, and cook- ing oils. actual fats cut from meat during preparation and left-ovrs which-should be molted down and poured into a container. Fat salvaging may reach far- "her-than the lome. Itmay be ob- tainttd from animals that die on the farm.

Chastek, State Occupational Advisor, nd Mr. W. D. Pfeifr, Clerical Audi- tor Supervisor, held a special meeting with the Okanogan Coun- ty Local Draft Board Monday ev- ening. The meeting was attended by J. R. Everett, chairman; Hor- ace E. Smith and George A. Shal- ow, board members and Mrs. Ada LemnsUer, clerk. Must Fill Quotas The principal development of this meeting was the emphasis by Commander Chatek that pre-in- duction and induction calls must be filled. In order to fill hese calls, it is necessary for the Lo- cal Board to send for preinduc- tion physical examinations those registrants in Class 2A and 2B, who are under 30 years of age. While it was stressed that de- mands of the armed forces for material production must con- tinue, nevertheless the emphasis at this time on filling the needs of the armed forces for addition- al manpower, forces the with- drawal of men under 30 years of age, from industry except in the rarest of cases. Will Review Registrants In the age group of registrants 30 through 33, those who are not engaged in an essential activity, as defined by National Headquar- ters Release as of January 15, 19- 45, are to be reviewed by the Lo- cal Board and processed with a View to induction..Because of the needs of the armed forces for manpower, it is necessary to go into the higher age bracket, where it will interegere with the produc- tion of material the least. "Of emtrso/' Commander Chas- tek said, "the registrant who jumps his job without permission of his local board is literally ask- ing us to put him into the Army immediately." Under current directive, regis- trants are required to #ecure per- mission of local boards before making a transfer. The purpose of this directive is to disrupt war production as little as possible. and conforms to the directive of the War Mobilization Director Mr: Byrnes.

The cost of operating the Red Cross in the gigantic second world war for survival costs the sum of $6.00 per second. It is unnecessary to point out the work done by this group for it has become the most" essen- tial mercy movement in history to ease the suf- fering of humanity. Our seCtion made a remarkable record last year .but the demands have risen and the amount we must raise has likewise increased. Just think what it will mean if you donate enough to finance one or more seconds to ease the suffering or to give your son, husband or fa- ther some of the comforts on the battlefield or in the military camps. We know that our people will not fail in their support of this great humanitarian organi, zation. Give generously to the led Cross when the volunteer solicitors call at your business or home for contributiona
