New Red And Blue Stamps Must Last For Five Weeks

The red point cost of margarines is going up from two to three points a point, beginning Sunday, and previously point free fat pork cuts will require a point per pound.

Plate and jowl bacon, pork fat backs and clear plates, jowls, jowl butts or squares, and regular plates are the fat pork items which will require a point a pound.

Butter Still 24

Points are being restored for these pork items, OPA said, because the wholesale cuts from which they are made are also used in the production of lard, now back on the ration list.

Butter, at 24 points a pound, tops the unchanged red point list.

Supplies of meats to be available to civilians in the five week February ration period will be smaller than in January on an average weekly basis, it was estimated.

Supplies of beef, veal, lamb and mutton, and pork all will be smaller on an average weekly basis.

Stamps Valid Jan. 28

Six more red stamps will become valid Jan. 28 and five more blue stamps Feb. 1.

Since the February rationing period will last five weeks instead of four, Jan. 28 to March 3, six red stamps instead of the usual five are being validated.

Red stamps will be good beginning Jan. 28 for rationed meats and fats, worth 10 points, are Y5, Z5, A2, B2, C2 and D2.

Blue stamps that will be good Feb. 1 for processed food during the month are H2, J2, K2, L2, and M2, a total of 50 points.
