Emergency Price Control Act (EPCA) & OPA... Contains the WWII war-time rationing OPA Regulations Statement! OPA was the Office Of Price Administration that issued ration stamps and set maximum pricing allowed for restaurants so that over-inflated high prices would not occur during the war. Meat & other items were in very short supply. The OPA statement was printed on menus to show they were in compliance with the rationing regulations.
