Contains the 1943 WWII war-time rationing OPA Regulations Statement! OPA is 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 was in very short supply and restaurants had to limit their meat somehow so they came up with meatless days and other clever marketing ideas.

This menu shows the patriotic attitude of America at that time... "On to Victory America! We can, we will, we must fulfill our pledge to invest a Billion Dollars a month in War Bonds and Stamps..."

"On Tuesdays, our menu is MEATLESS. We know you don't mind doing without meat to insure our FIGHTING FORCES getting all they need..."
