dragged these off of WoodFinder.com.

I'm old enuff to remember driving down to Havard, IL for "oleo" since
margarine was outlawed in WI.
Also, when I worked at the grocery store - we noticed a distinct decline in
Velveeta sales when we rearranged the dairy section. Funny, once we put the
"mostly petroleum based product" back in the chiller, sales restored.

Heh, I live just SE of Harvard and I'm surprised they were selling it

publicist.<g> I mean, any town that has a statue of a cow sitting in

Growing up in the northern suburbs and frequently traveling up into SE
WI I can definitely recall all those Red on Yellow signs along US Route
41 proclaiming "Last Chance for Oleo," "Last Chance for Colored Margarine."
