National and local chapters ot the Council ot Jewish Women sent a letter to Mr, Chester Bowles, head of the Office of Price Administration, support¬ ing the action. This vvas done because Coun¬ cil feels that the decision to in¬ validate food stamps and to re¬ vise the rationing program was necessitated by dire need and that In war time we must have faith in our country's adminis¬ trators and their knowledge of what muat be done to further the war effort. Council feels also, that no sacrifice we are asked to make can compare in any small way to the sacrifices being made by our men and women pn. the battlefronts and that we muat do willingly and gladly any¬ thing asked of us by our gov¬ ernment.
