This was the final shot of the game. Kevin could feel Coach Lane's gaze, he could feel the anticipation of his team members. He balanced the ball on his fingertips.

He crouched slightly and launched the ball. It sailed a smooth arc toward his target. All the while Kevin was urging it on under his breath. The ball spun along the edge of the hoop in a semicircle, slowly lost momentum, and fell through the net.
Kevin heard Coach Lane's triumphant shot even before the ball hit the court. The stands erupted with cheering, and Kevin knew he'd done it. He'd won the game for his team!

United States soldiers consumed 20,000 tons of food a day during World war II. This large demand for food made it necessary for the government to begin a rationing program for the civilian population. This program severely limited the availability of many food staples, including the following, meat, sugar, canned vegetables, tea, and coffee. As a result, special wartime cookbooks were written to help citizens cope with food shortages. These books contained recipes that used small amounts of scarce ingredients or allowed substitutions for them. For example, one recipe explained how to make a cake without using butter, milk, or eggs. Wartime cookbooks also provided helpful hints on how to get the most out of rationed ingredients so that nothing would be wasted. These popular books helped American citizens feel they were contributing to the war effort.
