Headlines from Adair County News, February 1943

News from World War II dominate weekly paper headlines of 75 years ago
Income tax chart accompanies this story


In early February 1943, the duration and outcome of World War II was far from certain. Headlines on the front page of the February 3rd edition of the News reflect the tenor of the times:

Plans Underway for Red Cross War Fund Campaign and Roll Call

Volunteers for Service in US Air Forces

Restrictions on Sale of Gasoline

No Deferment for Married Men

Volunteers Needed by Local Rationing Board

Adair County Boy Held Prisoner by Japs

Canned Goods Rationing Will Begin on March 1

War-related items also took a fair amount of space on the interior pages. Among them were a PSA urging readers to purchase War Bonds; a blank 4-H Victory Membership form to be clipped, filled out, and mailed in (Adair County's membership goal was 2,400 boys and girls); and the Victory (i.e., Federal Income) Tax chart linked.
