COMK OUT here and rummage around the cities and towns for a few days, ycu soon find out what Ls wrong with rationing.
You will lind the answer, not in the complaint* of peopft who, in general, aie valiantly trying to conform to a-s complicated a system of national regulations as was ever imposed upon a democratic people. The authorities who know, are th© officials of the local boards.
Most small cities have had from three to five rationing chairmen already Longest possible tenure seems i to be two to three month Few car, j stand it longer. Of all tyjies of war work, this has proved to be the h^rd-1 est Then typical daily problems include:
A groct t bought a carload cf i jieciai kind ol black ch< cries before point rationing started. The as are consider-ed a special delicacy in his area for some reason, but soon grow rancid When th* point system was slapped on, th** grocer could not get rid of the cherries.
He had th* m the people needed them to eat, yet no matter bow much the local rationing official protested to his superiors in faraway Large title*, the higher-ups insisted on letting the cherries spoil. Se venteen percent of them had decomposed in this time of national lood shortage, the last I heard of the matter.
In cne locality, there was the case of a town recluse with a peculiar eating-1 habit He lived solely by the consumption of a well known brand of canned ham and fx>rk and would eat nothing else. Neighbors disown rod him in his house when he had been without lood three days because hr points ran out. It took days cf arguing and long distance calls before an exception was authorised to prevent his death from starvation.Lewis Strike Hits Nation With Paralyzing Effect
