Invitations to dinner at the executive mansion in Harrisburg may soon carry the letters "B.Y.O.S." Governor James commented jokingly. In other word: Bring Your Own Sugar.

He's wondering how to get enough sugar to run the mansion from the three ration books allowed for himself, his wife, and daughter Dorothy.
