Now I know why my dad would not buy us new shoes when we got a hole in them and had to put cardboard liner in to keep the rocks out???
The Nov 21st 1944 Ration Calendar for Dec 1944 covered Processed Foods, Meat/ Cheese, Sugar, Gas, Heating Oil, and shoes were added. Now if we had lived in Nebraska that would be no problem as we went there for a wedding in a small town and saw people of all ages without shoes. Iowa people must had tender feet? Len Granger 50
