Contains the 1943 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, so restaurants came up with clever marketing ideas such as certain meatless days. The OPA statement was printed on menus to show they were in compliance with the rationing regulations.
