Old Sacrifice

A summer evening in Pittsburgh, June 1943, around the time my friend Bob was headed over to China to fly the Hump:
"OPA (Office of Price Administration) lawyers hold nightly hearings for offenders in the pleasure driving regulations. Policemen, accompanied by OPA investigators, stop the drivers, question them. If there is any question about their reason for driving, they are asked to appear at a hearing that same night or any time in the next three days. This man is furious because his gas ration book was taken away when he was caught driving to a baseball game."

Something to keep in mind when stuck in traffic headed to the next Bucco game...
