V8 2005 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE




The E-Sylum:  Volume 8, Number 16, April 17, 2005, Article 22

FEATURED WEB SITE

This week's featured web site is about U.S. World War II
ration tokens.

"No longer could we eat, drink and be merry. This new edict
immediately transformed us into squirrels who must store up
their nuts against a hard winter. And store them we did,
grudgingly if not willingly.

In order to secure our personal copy of this new ration book,
every man, woman and child in the country was required to
declare in writing the exact current status of his or her pantry
shelves. We had to declare every can of processed food in
our possession  no fair skipping the hoard in the basement
or in the refrigerator either. Should we have been thrifty the
preceding fall and painstakingly canned hundreds of jars of
food from our victory garden, we were penalized, not
rewarded, for our efforts as they counted against us, too."
