Tire Purchasers Classified A preferential Hat of occupa- tions for use in selecting persons to receive passenger car tires has been prepared by OPA in coopera- tion with the War Manpower Com- mission. Under the new plan the ntmlber olf eligibles is not reduced, but they are classified into four preference groups for the aid of Local War Price and Rationing Boards in issuing tire certificates. Group 1 is limited almost entirely to persons whese occupations are of emel~enc~y ~,at~c,:~'~ to work- ~rs at establishments faced with production emergeneie~ Within this group are elig~,ble physicians, public health nurses, police and employees at critical war indus- tries such as those producing ur- gently needed aircraft and ammu- nition that are experiencing a man- power emergency. The exact plants, however, will 'be determined on the advice of local WMC offic- ials. Group 2 includes persons em- ployed in other essential plants, and those whose .occupations are highly ~mportant to the war ef- fort. In this ,group are farmers, farm workers and representatives ~f management, l~bor and govern- ment who recruit for essential es- ta~blisbyments. Group 3 includes such occupations as buyers for es- sential establishments, and persons who travel to essential establish- ments on request to perform nec- essary technical services, such as tho~e who advise these' establish- ments on machinery maintenance pr~blarns. Group 4 takes in all other persons eligible for grade one passenger tires. Tire ~Ul~ply Reduced Only 1,000,000 passenger tires for cars and motorcycles will be avails~ble to civilians during April, as compared with the 1,600,009 avail~ble in March, OPA announc- ed. This sharply reduced civilian tire supply is due to a decline in l~roduction caused by a serious shortage of carbon black, an in- gredient used to harden synthetic ~Nber. Milk Production for 1945 Milk production on farms during 1945 is expected to be at least as large as Lhe 1944 output of 119 ~billion pounds, says the Bureau of &gricultural Dconomics. Milk cows on farms January 1, 1945, totaled 27,785..000 head, or 129,000 more than on January 1, 1944. Returns to dairy farmers, because of h~gh- er production payment rates for ~t~tterfat, probably will average higher in 1945 than in 1944. Also dairy products' feed price ratios ~ill continue favorable to milk l~red~cers with the 1924-1943 av- erage.

Other features of attraction in connection with the district con- ference include the sir~ging of Mrs. Lon Godley, formerly of Boise City and the a capella singing of the Goodwell choir under the direction of Ch~uncey B.

Baby Rationed May 1st .Shoe rationing will be extended May I, 1945, to include the entire size range of infants' leather shoes announced Charles W. Hatter, dis- trict OPA shoe rationing officer, this week. Harter said this action is being taken in order to help build up critically needed supplies of in- fants' leather ~hoes in the larger sizes already under rationing con- trol. t r "o s New dealers, those no p em u - ly registered with OPA because they did n~t sell rationed shoes, who have i~ts' 0-4 leather ~aaoes in stock May 1 will have to reg- ister with the OPA district office by filing an inventory of their rationed stock, Hatter explained. Other regularly registered 'deal- ers w~ho h~ve such shoes in stock, in storage, or in transit to them on IKay 1, will be required to make a record of the number of pairs ef man :planes Sunday.
