The Salida Daily Mail, Sept. 9, 1944:

Chaffee county motorists who will be getting their new “A” books back by mail are urged to save the return stub called “mileage rationing record” which will be returned in the envelope with the new “A” book, according to Dr. L.A. Barrett, who has charge of giving out the books in this county.

If gas rationing continues, these stubs will be needed, Barrett stated, as rationing is now on a mileage basis. These stubs will need to be taken to the ration board for applying for “C” and “C” books.
