Where’s the Beef?

Saturday, Mar. 27, 1943

Forget the weather! Forget the war! Where’s the meat? With rationing about to start, there pretty much was none to be had. Shops were empty, thanks to hoarders. But unlike canned goods, there’s only so much meat you can stock without a good freezer – an item very very few people could afford to buy, let alone power. No wonder sales of horse meat had risen 60% in South Bend, Indiana. But on a happier note, circuses had gotten permission for their trains to roll so there would be parades and shows coming to many towns across the country.
