Pages of History: Like the war, shoe rationing is finally over

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, November 1945.

Shoe rationing ended officially at midnight Tuesday. And poor papa now can get a pair of shoes. Step by step we move nearer the end of all rationing as another war-time restriction is obliterated.

The official announcement came Tuesday, when OPA Administrator Chester Bowles announced that the production of ration-type shoes had taken a big jump since V-J Day, thus paving the way for the termination of the rationing order.

Production of former ration-type shoes in November and December will reach a peak of close to 30 million pairs a month. This production figure is expected to reach or equal normal consumer demand before the war.
