Tha atatamant follows:
"If wo ara to forniah tha alliaa
with tha nacoaaary proportion o1
wheat to maintain their war broad
from now until the next harvest—and
thla ia a military necessity—wa must
reduce our monthly consumption to
21 million buahela a month, against
oar noma! consumption of about 42
million bushels, or 60 par cent of
our normal consumption. Reserving
a margin for distribution to the army
and for special cases, this leaves for
general consumption approximately
one and one-half pound of wheat pro
ducts weakly per person.
"Many of our consumers are de
pendent upon bakers' bread. Such
brand must be durable nd therefore
require* a large portion of wheat pro
ducts than cereal breads Iwkod in
the household. Our army and navy re
quires a full allowance. The well-to
do in our population can make great
er sacrifices in the consumption of
wheat products than can the poor.
In addition, our population in the ag
ricultural districts wnere the other
cereals are abundant, are more skilled
in the preparation of breads from
there other cereals than the crowded
city and industrial populations.
"With improved transportation we
now have Available a surplus of pota

months a surplus of milk and we have
ample corn and oats for human con
sumption. The drain on rye and bar

"To effect tile needed Having of
wheat w» are wholly dependent upon
the voluntary assistance of the Amer
ican people and we a.-k that the fol
lov^ng rule* shall be observed:
"First: Householders to use not to
exceed a total of one and one-half
pounds per week of wheat products
per person. This means not more,
than one and three-fourths pound* of
i victory bread containing the required
percentage of substitutes, and about
one-half pound of cooking flour, mac
aroni, crackers, pastry, pies, cakes,
"Second: Public eating places and
wheat breakfast cereals, all combin
clubs to observe two wheatless days
per week—Monday and Wednesday—
as at present; more breadstuff*, maca
roni, crackers, pastry, Jiies. cakes,
wheat breakfast cereals, containing a
total of more than two ounces of
wheat flour to be served unless speci
fically ordered; public eating places
not to bay more than six pounds of
wheat products per month per guest,
thus conforming with limitations re
quested of the householders.
"Third: Retailers to sell not more
than one-eighth of a barrel of flour to
any town customer at any one time
and not more than one-quarter of a
barrel to any country customer at any
one time and in no case to sell wheat
products without the sale of an equal
weight of other cereals.
"Fourth: We auk the bakers and
grocers to reduce the volume of vic
tory bread sold by delivery of the
three-quarter pound loaf where one
pound was sold before and correspond
ing proportions in other weights. We
also ask bakers not to increase the
amount of their wheat flour purchases
beyond 70 per cent, of the average
monthly amount purchased in the
four months prior to March 1.
"Fifth: Manufacturers using wheat
products for non-food purposes should
cease such use entirely.
"Sixth: There is ho limit upon the

corn, barley, buckwheat, potatoes,

Raleigh, March 2Sth.—Persons who
have been complaining about food re

comparison of their situation with the

Annie Robinson of Cargo Fleet,
England, is in jail. She has been sen
tenced to serve three months. Annie's
daughter was a grocer's assistant.
She had access to foods that could be
sneaked home without the knowledge
of the Ministry of Food. Among
other things she had taken home, and
of which her mother was found guilty
of hoarding, were 42 pounds of sugar
and small quantities of condensed
milk and tea. Annie violated a food
law when she hoarded the sugar, and
now she is being made to pay the pen

land, owned several hog"- They were
fine looking animals, sleek and well
fed. Moore was very proud of them.
Several weeks ago the police happen
ed to pass when the piggies were at
luncheon. They looked into the trough
and found the porkers were being kept
sleek and healthy on a ration that in
cluded bread and meal. Moore is now
serving three months in jail for using
bread otherwise than for human food.
Mii<s Carolina Stiff of Dover Eng
land, had 14 pet dogs. She was very
fond of them and left nothing undone
that might aid to their comfort. A
few vfceks ago Mias Stiff mixed some
bread and milk for their breakfast.
Unfortunately, the Ministry of Food
learned of the menu and Miss Stiff
