THE QUESTION:
What was your experience with shoe
rationing in the first ration period?
Salesman: I’m on my feet plenty,
and shoe ration
in g had me
scared. So I tried
a pair of expen
sive shoes. May
be I expected too
much from them
in Wartime. Any
way, I’m not
squawking — but
I will say this:
I’m going back to Thom McAns
with my 18 ration stamp.
War Worker: It was a breeze for
me. I got a spe
cial ration stamp
for work shoes
after I’d used my
17 stamp for reg
ular shoes. Yep—
Thom McAns,
and they’re still
going strong. Be
lieve me, brother,
I’m not spending
any money I can save. I know this
war won’t last forever.
Mother or Four: Rationing of
children's shoes
worked out bet
ter than I expec
ted. By having
my kiddles'
Thom McAns re
soled they got by
nicely And when
Junior outgrew
his, the Ration
Board gave me
an extra stamp for another pair.
Accountant: Rationing didn’t
bother me a bit.
I’m not hard on
shoes—two pairs
a year do for me.
I’d say. Years
ago I found just
the shoes I like—
neat, and com
fortable. They’re
Thom McAn’s
style T627. I'm
wearing them right now.

What did you do in the first shoe ration period? Did you
buy shoes costing twice as much as you usually paid?
If so, does it look as if you’ll get twice as much wear
from them? If the answer is no, you’ll want to read below,
the true facts about sole leather in Wartime. They’ll give
you some new light on how best to use your new ration
stamp Number 18.

Sty!. E 668
DID YOU KNOW that M of the five (c
top grades of sole leather go to our Armed Forces and f~\
Lend-Lease? This hits high-priced shoes hardest-there
is less difference today than ever between Thom McAns and the
most expensive shoes. Save safely, sensibly, with Thom McAns.

Freedom from want is taken up in
the film on world food problems,
“World of Plenty,” which was flown
to this country to be shown at the
Food Conference at Hot Springs, Va.
This script was written by the late
Maj. Eric Knight, United States
Army, who met death in a plane
crash.
Opening with the prewar problems
of overproduction, the film enacts
the tragedy of glutted markets and
hungry people, then shows what is
needed for a sound postwar food
program for the peoples of the world.
The 45-mlnute film directs atten
tion to the need for international
control of world products for the
common man. “We cannot attain
freedom from want until every man,
woman and child shall have enough
of the right kind of food to enable
them to develop their full and in
herited capacity for health and well
being,” the narrator concludes.
The second film, “Silent Village,”
had its first showring in this country
yesterday. The tragedy of Lidice is
re-cnacted by the people of Cwm
giedd, a mining village in South
Wales, who live a life similar to that
formerly emjoyed by the people of
the destroyed town.
The people of the small Welsh
village talk their native language
and sing their native songs through
out the film.
Embassy members, Government
officials and members of the press
were among those viewing the pic
tures. At present there is no plan
for their public showing, a British
representative said, but the food pic
ture may be released later through
the OWI.
