The clipping, found tucked in a pattern from the war years of the 1940s, provides most of a specific comic strip, although I have no idea of the name of it. It shows that saving items for the war effort was very important during those difficult years. It's very touching humor. :)
It's also sort of fun to note the fashions of the day as illustrated in this cartoon, especially for the ladies.
