Evening Star (DC)
17 October 1943


Registration for War Ration Book No. 4 will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, according to Richard C. Haydon, Prince William County registration chairman. County schools will be closed all day Friday in order that the work may be completed. Teachers in the following schools designated as registration places will have charge of issuing the new books:

Osbourn High School, Manassas, R. Worth Peters, chairman; Haymarket New School, Mrs. Nelson Lynn, chairman; Nokesville High School, C. O. Bittle, chairman; Occoquan High School, Mrs. Mae T. Sanford, chairman; Woodbine School, Miss Sue Ayres, chairman; Dumfries Graded School, Mrs. Wallace Lynn, chairman; Quantico Masonic Hall (for civilians), Miss Margaret Powell, chairman. A registration place within the Quantico Military Post for military personnel will be announced later.

Mr. Haydon requests that residents make applications as early as possible to avoid last-minute congestion. One member of a family, 18 years of age or older, may register for the entire family. The registrant must present War Ration Book No. 3 for each member of the household for whom application is made.
