Explain New Wheat Ruling to
Thousands of Customers—ln
sures Greater Food Saving.
Grocers of the nation have accepted
enthusiastically the 00-W basis for the
purchase of wheat flour and ore doing
their utmost to explain the new regu
lation to tho housewife. This ruling by
tho U. S. Food Administration requires
each purchaser of wheat flour to buy
ono pound of cereal substitute, one
kind or assorted, for every pound of
wheat flour. It was necessury to re
strict the use of wheat flour in order
that the allies and our fighting force*
abroad might be assured of an ade
quate supply of wheat to meet their
vital needs. This supply must come
from our savings because we have al
ready sent our normal surplus.
Wheat suvlng pledge curds were for
warded by the Food Administration to
all retail food merchants, und these
are being signed and posted In stores
throughout tho country. This card
states, "We pledge ourselves loyally to
carry out tho Food Administration pro
gram. In accordance with this order
we will not sell any wheat flour except
where the purchaser buys an equal
weight of ono or moro of the following,
a'greater use of which In tho home
will suvo wheat:
"Cornmeul, corn flour, edible corn
starch, hominy, corn grits, barley flour,
potato flour, sweat potato flour, soy
bean flour, feterlta flour and meals,
rice, rice flour, oatmeal, rolled oats and
Bonjo confusion has resulted on the
part of tllo consumer In construing
this "&050" ruling to mean that nn
equal amount In value of substitutes
must bo purchased with wheat flour.
This Is a mistaken Idea. The ruling
stales that tho consumer In purchasing
flour shall "buy at the saine time an
equal weight of other cereals."
Ono exception to this ruling Is con
cerning graham flour and whole wheat
flour, which may bo sold at tho ratio
of three pounds to flvo pounds of
wheat flour. This provision Is inndo
because approximately 2.1 per cent,
more of tho wheat berry Is used In the
manufacture of these (lours than stand
ard wheat flour.
Anolber exception Is that concern
ing mixed flours containing less than
GO per cent, of wheat (lour, which may
bo sold without subclinics, ltetsllers,
however, are forbidden to sell mixed
flours containing more then 150 per
cent, of wtieat flour lo any person un
less the amount of wheat flour substi
tutes sold Is sufficient to make the to
tal amount of substitutes, including
thoso mixed In flours, equal to tho to
tal amount In whe'nt flour In tho mixed
flour. For Instance, If nny mixed flour
Is purchased containing 00 per cent
wheat flour and 40 per cent, substi
tutes It Is nccessnry that an additional
20 per cent of substitutes bo pur
chased. This bring* It to tho basis of
one pound of lubitltute* for each
pound of wheat flour.
A special exemption may be granted
upon application In tho case of special
ly prepared tnfunta' and Invalids' food
containing flour where the necessity 1*
Home misunderstanding seems to ex
ist on tho part of consumers l/i assum
ing that with tho purchase of wheat
flour oye must conflne tho additional
GO per cent purchase to one of the
substitutes. This Is not tho caso. One
may select from the entire rango of
substitutes a sufficient amount of each
to bring tho total weight of all substi
tutes equal to the weight of the wheat
flour purchased. For Instance, If a
purchase of 24 pounds of wtieat flour
Is made a range of substitutes may be
selected as follows:
Cornmeal, 8 pounds) corn grits, 4
pounds; rice, 4 pounds; buckwheat, 3
pounds; corn starch, 1 pound; hominy,
2 pounds; rolled oats, 3 pounds.
These substitutes may be used In
the following manner:
Corn meat. 8 I'ounda. —Corn bread, no
flour: corn., muffins or spoon bread.
One-fourth flour or one-third rice or
ono-thlrd hominy: 20 per cent substi
tutes In w hole bread.

gravy. making custard, one-third sub

Corn Grits. 4 Pounds.—Fried like

Food Administration Calls
Upon Farmers to Market All ■
Except Supply Necessary for j
Raleigh.—Blate Food Administrator
Homy A. Page has been Instructed by
the Food Administration at Washing
ton, In order fo assure the continuous
shipment of wheat to our armies
abroad and the armies of our Allies,
to appeal to the farmers of the State
to market the residue of their wheal
not later than May 1. No general or
der raqulsltlonlnlng wheat has been
sent out by the Food Administration
up to this time and probably will not
be sent out before the date mentioned.
In soma states ths attention of
State Food Administrators has been
called to reports from loyal farmers
that a number of pro-Oerman farmers
have determined to withhold their
wtieat from the market In order to
handicap to as great an extent as pos
slble the Oovernnient and its Allien In
the war against Germany. There
hare even been a few such Inataucea
reported In North Carolina. Su».h x
cases will be promptly investigated
and persons in this class will be di
rected to market their wheat Immedi
ately upon penalty of having It con
fiscated by the Clovernmpnt.
Administrator Page Is confident ol
an Immediate and patriotic rosponao
upon the part of wheat growing farm
ers In North Carolina who still have
wheat on hand. Mr. Page states that
there is no pecuniary reason why
wheat growers should not murket all
of their wheat beyond their own re
quirements until the next harvest. H
Is possible that a higher price will be
fixed by Congress for the coming crop
but it would not apply to wheat from
the lost harvest. Further, there is
really some danger that the next crop
will not sell at as high a price In
North Carolina as wheat Is selling at
present because the rate of per
bushel fixed by President Wilson by
proclamation may be made to apply
to all sections of frdlght
There Is a further chance that the
smaller mills which are now unre
stricted as to the price they may pay
for wheat, may be restricted to the
baaing price minus freight from the
nearest basing point which would be
from »S.lO to 92.1G per bushel from
most points In North Carolina.
