No More Typewriter Rentals
From the September 27, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
"Under regulations issued by the Office of Price Administration all typewriter rentals companies, dealers and store owners are to cancel all rentals of machines which have been manufactured since January 1, 1935.
"Those machines which have been rented and are still out are to be picked up and put back into stock unless the renter can secure a certificate from the rationing board and present it to the dealer. Otherwise the machine must be picked up."
