shoes were manufactured before
March 1, 1944, and will be sold
ration-free at retail for $3 50 a
pair or less. Applications may
| be filed with OPA District Office
I beginning August 10, through
September 8, 1945. Dealers must
have the approval of the District
Office before selling the shoes
Reports reaching OPA show
that some types of men’s and
women’s low-priced rationed
shoes are not moving out of the
' sellers’ stocks. Consumers are
reluctant to spend ration stamps
for some ower price dshoes and
have instead bought footwear in
the higher price brackets, Raw
lings explained. As a result, civ
ilians are losing the walking mile
age represented by this footwear,
and the longer t]ie shoes remain
on dealers’ shelves the more they
deteriorate in quality.
The ration-free release should
encourage consumers to buy and
i^se these shoes to supplement
rationed types, OPA said. In ad
dition, it sihould reduce the num
ber of applications to local War
Price and Rationing Boards for
special shoe stamps'

j At the time this editorial was

to the ad, and therein lies food for
j serious thought. This editorial is

I the youth of today, but rather as a
■ comment on the times in which
j we are living. By and large,
today’s young people are no
| better or no worse than
i yesterday's. But they are
, living in very artificial and dis
concerting times—an era when the
: sagacity of age and the virility and
1 energy of youth are being used to
win a globe-spanning war. Those
who have attained the required
age have been called to the colors,

the boys still in high school—clean
cut, clear eyed, normal American
boys who are demanding and get

which their fathers earned for
many years after they began sup
porting a family, and more, per
haps, than the fathers are earn
There is a philosophy existent
today which says “I’m going to
get mine now; the future can take
care of itself.” It is a false and
dangerous philosophy because
the future has a treacherous way
of boomeranging against those
wtho haven’s prepared for it. Only
a few years ago it was considered
wise and honorable to learn a
trade and steel onesself against
the uncertainties of omorrow
But today’s big wages have
changed all that—and Uncle Sam
is the worst offender of all.
And because of all this, the
boys of this generation aren’t
taught to prepare for the future,
aren't interested in learning a
trade where the skIII of ones
hands is the measure of a fine
craftsman. The size of todays
dollar sign is far too overwhelm
ing, just as the size of tomorrows
might be pitifully insufficient.
No, we do not mean this as a
criticism of today’s youth. But the
parents might give it some
