The way we understand it is, that be- this week, sale of coffee is to be entirely one can buy coffee until next Sunday November 29. This is supposed to allow dealers to get their supplies of coffee in readiness for the opening of the rationing season which will begin next Sunday. Those housewives who have laid in a large supply of coffee in readiness for the rationing will be required to make a statement or how much they have on -hand, which amount will be subtracted from their ration of one pound per month for each person in the family over 15 years of a-e The pound ration it has been figured will cnve%ach person only one cup of Java per day, and we imagine that the Coffee Gulpers club, as Chris Reese calls it, will have to disband for the duration. It has been suggested, however, that there seems to be nothing to stop a person after drinking his one cup of coffee at home, going uptown and drinking several more cups at the restaurants. As W. F. Miller, the venerable editor of the Livermore Gazette, lately acknowledged, he had been able to get around the prohibition of liquor during the prohibition era he figured that there would be some way found to get his usual amount of coffee. Well, that remains to be seen, and we await the issue with baited breath, while To prove that I am an educated Dane, Fred Tlmm of the local Red Cross, brought in a message from Denmark, written in Dane and I interpreted every word and Fred was astounded, because on account of he didn't think I could read and write Dane knowing I ain't too good at reading and writing 'English and Jens Sorensen and L.

Clement could move their barber equ'.pment under the bank and all three of 'em are now all hepped up watching and hoping an occasional nickel will fall through the floor of the bank arrd they would pick it up and they're all wet when they think a nickel will ever drop out of the fingers of Ralph Miller and Harold Gilmore or any other of the Maybe a lot of people saw me walking down the main drag with the draft board and maybe they may have thought I was being drafted but 1 wasn't because on account of that bunch just don't seem to give a hang for my service Mi thes army and I took 'em to a cafe and bough coffee and Lester Lease and Clark Scuffham and George Hagge anc Miss Fraser all joined the Gulpers club and I spent ah extra nlcke for crackers and we had a nic lunch with the gulping, so to speal but I'm still a civilian.
