BARUCH REPORT—Crowding news from the war fronts for attention in Washington is the Baruch report on reconversion—a report which found enthusiasm in some quarters, general acceptance in most and some criticism in still others.

MARY PAULINE PERRY
The Office of Price Administration has exempted gasoline with an octane rating of 86 or higher from coupon rationing, except when blended for use in a motor vehicle. This move was made because the country’s entire output of high octane aviation gasoline is controlled by the Aviation Petroleum Products Allocation Committee by allocation and no useful purpose is served by subjecting it to coupon rationing, OPA said.
