He said the coupons were transported to their storage facilities a in armoured vehicles and treated with the same care As the spokesman said Fea Felt the chances of anyone breaking into the government guarded facilities and stealing the coupons were minimal. Gunter had claimed the Fea would have to destroy the coupons to keep them from being used in the change machines but the spokesman said there Are no present plans to destroy or alter them. He noted that the coupons would be Worth More than a Dollar on the open Market if rationing Ever should occur As a result it would not be advantageous for persons to use them in Dollar changers during rationing he said. Gunter has been a persistent critic of the coupons which were printed by the Bureau of engraving and printing As part of a contingency rationing plan.
