APPLICATION FOR CERTIFICATE TO RENT CLASS B TYPEWRITERS
In general, Class B typewriters are those nonportable type¬ writers manufactured between January 1, 1928 and December 31, 1934, inclusive, as defined in Ration Order No. 4A.
Class B typewriters may be rented only by those who are actually engaged in work essential to the prosecution of the war. It is important that every typewriter regardless of age or condition be put to maximum use to conserve the limited number now available.
