Hog ‘n Hominy

Monday, Dec. 14, 1942

You’d be forgiven for thinking the war was just about over. The Tribune’s banner headline today proclaimed “Nazi Lines Smashed in Libya.” On the same page in smaller print was the notice that eleven Japanese warships had been routed. Only in hindsight do we know how much longer it would take and how many setbacks would occur. On page 3 was the news that Marshall Henri Petain of France had accepted Hitler’s order to form a new army and send 400,000 workers to Germany. Still, people must be heartened as the year drew to an end on such a note. Arkansas residents, however, were irate at the shortage of lard and salt pork for their traditional holiday meal of Hog ‘n Hominy.
