Gang,
 
     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
