Today in 1942: Typewriters

Imagine, a technology company faced with a new set of regulations from the gubmint:

Because writing machines are essential to industrialized total war, rationing of typewriters was inevitable. All new and recent model, factory rebuilt, office-size machines had to be conserved for the vital needs of the United Nations' war production.

Underwood Elliott Fisher accordingly applauds the new regulations which went into effect June 1st. It pledges the sincerity and vigilance of its Dominion-wide sales, service and supply organization to the regulations' whole-hearted observance and rigid enforcement.
