Gasoline Alley

This old Gasoline Alley strip from WWII reminds us what it's really like to live in a time of shortages. Judy is looking for scrap metal "for the boys overseas". "I'm working to be lieutenant in the scrap drive." She asks, "Uncle Avery, have you got some metal for me?" Avery only gives her two bent bolts. Lucky Corky has a plan.
