In Ore­gon, the loaf local­ly called “war bread” con­tained 40 per­cent wheat sub­sti­tutes, such as corn, bar­ley, or rice flour; anoth­er type, known as “vic­to­ry bread,” con­tained 25 per­cent sub­sti­tutes. Those who munched on war bread, read­ers of the Ore­gon Evening Her­ald were told, were “15 per cent more patri­ot­ic than the one who eats vic­to­ry bread.”
