    Must be the 40s if paper is scarce. I remember, even up into the 50s, that community charity groups used to sponsor a yearly “paper drive” and kids would go door to door, asking people to donate their old newspapers to whatever charity the kids were representing. In those days, no one threw their old newspapers out in the weekly trash. You bundled them up and kept them in the garage so you would have newspapers to donate during the annual paper drive!

    As Boy Scouts in the 50’s we had a monthly paper drive.

    Although, I will bet this was during the war.

    In the 50s we made bales of book and newspapers for recycling. I don’t fully understand the last speech bubble: is there a word left out?

    When I was a Boy Scout in the ’50s my Troop collected newspapers to pay for our summer camping trip. We had a garage completely full. The fire inspector said if it ever caught fire it would smolder forever.

    @derry1
    I think it’s more a word was put in but didn’t belong. I believe it should read: “I know. But at least you would be saving a lot of paper.”

    Who knows but what genius could be lost in the world if Mutt’s writings never see the light of day!

    The paper was recycled into brown paper and cardboard.

    Our elementary school used to have paper drives in the 50’s.

    One of the finest poems ever written begins with “Here I sit, broken-hearted…”
