From volume 1, issue #34, dated Feb 6th, 1943

People at Newark, N.J., are no longer just saying, "I'm so hungry that I could eat a horse." They're doing just that; many of them are. The city authorized meat markets to sell horse flesh for human consumption, and already more than two tons of the stuff has been sold.

About newsbites: Each issue of Yank had dozens of short reports on events from the home­front as well as the battle­front. They provide a fas­cinat­ing glimpse into life during the war.
