Food Situation Reviewed and
New Rulings Made to
IMPORTANT FOOD RULINGS.
It was the good fortune of the ed
tor o f t he NEWS to attend the meet
ing of the North Carolina Food Con
servation Commission at Raleigh, on
ia-t "Tuesday and Wednesday. Mr.
Y Bacon! Polk 'county administra
tor .was unable to go, and so "sent a
hand" in the person of the editor. ;
' It would do any loyal American a
wnrd of jrood to attend a session of
these people, and see the task with j
which they are wrestling, put wun
genuine patriotism and loyalty they
tackle and solve many many knotty
problems. It is a work of devotion
to the cause for which our country is
struggling, for not a person, from
State Administrator Page to county
administrators, draw a cent of salary.
The results of their labor ar short of
marvelous. Everything is done
which can possibly be done to look' af
ter the interests of the housewife and
the small consumers. To that end,
many enterpriss are being put out of
business, being classed as non-essentials.
It may seem hard to those en
gaged in these lines -of business, but
in no other way can the welfare of the
people be conserved. -
We take pleasure in giving' the rul
ings of the commission on many of
the essential foods, and if every per
son will abide by the request of the
commission in these matters it will
make things much easier for Mr. Ba- I
con. vour counxy iooa administrator, i
and help directly the cause
of the I
United States and her allies.
The flour situation looks much
brighter, and as soon as the new-
crop of wheat is ready tOA.be milled,
the allowance is going to be' doubled,
and the amount of substitutes de
creased. The allowance will then be
12 pounds per month, per person, for
flour, and will require but twenty-
five per cent, of substitutes. Rye
however, is not under any circum
stances a substitute, but it may be
bought without having to purchase I
any substitutes with it. A farmer
may have enough wheat ground to Mrs. Victor E. Myers, of Spartan
provide him with flour until October burg, has returned home with her lit-
first, next, and at the end of that 1
time may have enough ground to last
him until harvest time in 1919. A
farmer may sell his wheat to either
a miller or merchant. But a mer
chant can sell that wheat for no more
than one cent per bushel profit. A
famler can not exchange wheat for
merchandise, neither can he sell
wheat to any other person except for
seed. So the flour situation looks

To your success in life;

Therefore many of us believe that
substantial and radical changes ought
to be made in the mail service, and
made at once, so that Polk county

Therefore I take it upon myself to
call a meeting of farmers and busi
ness men of Polk county, regardless
of age, sex, political or religious per
suasion, to meet at the court house in
Columbus on Monday, July 1st at 1:30

Polk county a better system of mail
