MUST AGT QUICKLY
Those Who Do Not Make Statements
to Food Administration by July 13
Will Be Cut Off From Sugar Sup
plies. Hotels, Boarding Houses and
Institutions Arei Included. Special
Provision For Wholesalers and
Raleigh All sugar dealers and
all users of sugar, including whole-
Y sale and retail merchants, hotels,
hording houses and restaurants
hospitals arid other institutions and
.bakers will be able to purchase sugai
after July 1 only upon certificate!
furnished by the Food Administration
after the dealers or users have made
statements of their requirements to
the Food Administration upon blanks
which are provided for this purpose.
Those who do not make such state
ments by July 15 will be refused any
certificates at all. -
In order' to prevent any interruption
to the normal flow of rugar to the
: trade, the Food Administration will
. i issue certificates to the wholesalers
and Jobbers in order to give them 30
idays supply of sugar including the
supply they have on hand already.
It is important that sugar shall be
i available for canning and preserving
purposes at this season and it is the
desire of the Food Administration that
all wholesalers and Jobbers shall inv
imediately take steps to secure certi
ficates for their 30 days supply of
ugar. After they have used these
certificates they will purchaS sugar
from brokers or refineries upon certi
ficates which they will receive from
Dealers Must Keep Records.
All dealers are required henceforth
to keep an accurate record of all sales
rof sugar, this record to embrace the
i name of purchaser, quantity and
price. Every wholesaler, as well as
retailer, is required to keep these rec
ords and every pound of sugar sold
must be accounted for. The records
are to be held subject to the inspec
tion of representatives of the Food
Administration, or may be required
by county food administrators.
' WOULD INCREA8E THE
8UPPLY OF POULTRY
Saving of All Pullets Would Greatly
Increase Egg and Meat Supply
More Money for Farmers.
Raleigh. The Food Administrator
Is backing up and encouraging in ev
ery manner possible the efforts of the
Agricultural "Extension Service in pro
moting the poultry industry in the
State. It is urging all farmers to
save every pullet possible, disposing
only of cockerels at this season for
broilers and frying chickens.
It is pointed out that there are
greater possibilities for increasing
the meat supply through the raising
to maturity of chickens than there is
through the increased production of
cattle and hogs, the so-called meat
animals. At present and prospective
prices of poultry and eggs foresighted
farmers cannot do - otherwise than
raise to maturity every pullet that
they can maintain. The pullet which
will sell today for 40 cents will pro
duce eggs to the value of several
times that sum during the winter or
spring or can be sold as a matured
hen during the winter for two jot
three times that sum. '
GRAHAM FLOUR FROM NEW
WHEAT WILL BE POPULAR
Raleigh. The grinding of new crop
wheat into graham flour is being en
couraged by the Food Administration.
In some sections of North Carolina
the new wheat Is reaching some of
the mills already. Most of the mills
refuse to handle the new wheat ex
cept in very small quantities on ac
count of its poor milling condition.
The Food Administration is anxious
that no further wheat flour shall be
imported into the State and for this
reason, and for the additional reaion
that mills find it exceedingly difficult
to grind new whsat and get the ex
traction which they are required to
get, is encouraging the grinding of
wheat into graham flour. Whole wheat
graham flour from the new crop wheat
Is sweet and wholesome, having a dis
tinctive flavor which makes it ex
ceedingly palatable and premises to
make it very popular.

Food Administrator-Henry A. Page
Announces New Restrict ons in
Sales of Sugar and Calls Upon Con
sumers to Economize Prese-ving

Raleigh. State Food Administrator
Henry A. Page has announced new
restrictions to govern all sales of sug
ar by wholesalers and retailers and
at the same time calls upon sugar con
sumers in North Carolina .t6 econo
mize and save the utmost ounci of
sugar through reduced consumption in
the home and through the elimina
tion of soft drinks, candy and other
less essential or non-essential prod
ucts. Beginning today, all dealers are
forbidden to sell more than two
pounds to a town or city consumer or
more than five pounds to a country
consumer and not more than 25 lbs.
can be sold at one time to individuals
for canning and preserving- purposes
under the certicate plan announced
some weeks ago by the Food Admin
istration. If a larger quanity is re
quired at one time it may be purchas
ed upon the approval of the County
Every dealer is required to keep an
absolutely accurate record of all sales
of sugar, this record to include the
date of sale, name of purchaser,
quantity sold and price. These records
will be examined periodically by the
Food Aministration inspectors who
will be put in the field in the imme
Mr. Page states frankly that the
sugar situation is serious. "It is ex
tremely important that there shall be
no curtailment in the quantity of pre
serves, jam, and canned fruits manu
factured during the present season,"
declared Mr. Page, "and if sugar is
to be plentiful and ample for preserv
ing and canning purposes there must
be marked conservation not Only by
commercial users who produce less
essential products such as soft drinks,
candy, etc., but also upon the part of
the individual consumers. It is the
patriotic duty of every American citi
zen to consume less of the products
of fountains and candy shop's under
the present conditions.
"It isthe duty of every man. woman
and child in the United States to use
a minimum of sugar for tea, coffee,
cereals, cakes and other edibles.
"The individual who uses more
sugar than is necesary for any pur
pose and who leaves unused sugar in
the bottom of their coffee cups or iced
tea glasses, is a slacker and a near
ally of the Kaiser. .
Less Essentials Must Go. ,
"The American nation is stripping
to the waist for this fight and non
essential industries must go by the
board. It has not been necessarj
until this time to curtail our use of
sugar to the extent that is now re
quested. It is necessary now and our
people must realize that, just as in the
case of wheat and meat, -they must
save until it hurts. The Food Admin
istration doesn't want any one to do
without creals, coffee, tea, etc., and
especially it doesn't want children
and invalids deprived of the amount
of sugar nececsary in their food for
their proper growth and development
but it does want and it will expect
every patriotic adult to confine their
use of sugar to not exceeding three
pounds per month at the very most.
This is the measure of conservation
and these three pounds a month
should Include any, candy, soft drinks,
etc., that are used."
FARMERS ARE URGED TO
SAVE ALL WHEAT POSS'BLE
Raleigh. State Food Administrator
Henry A. Page is urging the farmers
of North Carolina to exercise care
during the present harvesting season
to the end that no wheat shall be
left in the fields, around stumps, near
ditches and on the edges of the fields
where ar binder sometimes leaves a
small quantity uncut. It may often
happen that such wheat will not finan
cially pay the labor require to harvest
it but thie wheat is needed to feed
hungry men and women and every
farmer is urged to use the utmost pre'
caution in saving every stalk of
ROCKINGHAN CAFE FINED
FOR FOOD VIOLATION
Rockingham. Because it had re
peatedly violated! rules and regula
tions of the United States Food Ad
ministration, the Busy Bee Cafe of
this city, in order to escape more
drastic, punishment, has voluntarily
closed its door for four days with a
sign announcing to its patrons that it
is closed for violations of the food
regulations and in addition has made
a contribution of $100 to the local
Chapter of the Red Cross.
