Sand For Salvage Drive To Start Next Week Exchange salvage for sand! That old hot water boiler that’s been kicking around your basement for years has enough raw material in it to make a 37mm. gun. Out in your garage is that old piece of bumper and a rusty shovel. You’ll never use that burned-out electric iron again. Your chance to get rid of them and do a good turn for Uncle Sam at the same time will come next week when the elementary schools are thrown open for su-gar-rationing and the L. A. City Defense Council is preparing to deal out 25 pounds of sand to those who bring salvage at the same time. The sand, of course, is for the purpose of extinguishing incendiary bombs while the salvage will go to the government for use in war production.

What Do You Thinkl [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 30 April 1942
What Do You Thinkl They Asked For It America’s first food rationing program in a quarter of a century goes into effect for the duration on May 5. Every consumer in the land must have a ration book in order to receive the allotted quota of sugar. When millions of householders stand in line in the nation’s grade schools to receive ration books for themselves and members of their family, how many will re'fleet that this is more than a day of rationing? It is also a day of reckoning and retribution for the buying panic which raided the country’s sugar supplies. There were fears that the country’s sugar was almost gone. Consumers, all too many of them, proceeded to stock up their cupboards with heavy sugar supplies. They thought it was the smart thing to do, but they deceived themselves. Such selfishness injured their neighbors, created an artificial scarcity, and sent prices higher, with the result that a genuine shortage has occurred of so serious a nature that the government has had t...
