Where wanton violations of the

In order to give the consumer bet

the Food Administration contemplates

at which dealers should be'aSle to

What’s in Stbre for Heardery -
As a result of repotts that ..have
reached It from two counties in

.atructed ajl County Food Admlnistrar
'tors to Investigaite and report prompt
ly any evidences of hoarding of foo^
stuffp. Reports that havd-heen inves
tigated so far were found to have orig
inated as the result of the practice of
