American Meat Restrictions Re
iaxed to Effect Greater
ARGENTINE ARRIVALS SHORI
Meat Supply Here Considerably Ell
larged - Food Administratior4
However, Warns Against
The allies have made further aS
increased demands for breadstuff
these enlarged demands being cause
to some degree by shortage In arrival
from the Argentine. It Is, therefor(
necessary for the U. S. Food Admini
tration to urge a still further reductloi
In the conmmption of bread and bread
stufs generally if we are to meet ou
e3;port necessities. The Food Admin
istratlon has lsued a statement es
plaining the situation in detail, partic
ularly the reasons which lead It, to
the purpose of centering effort foi th
time being upon the cereal situatioi
to relax temporarily the restrictions oi
Experience shows, this statemen
says, that the consumption of bread
stuffs is intimately associated with th
consumption of meat. For varlon
reasons our supplies of meat for thi
next two or three months are consid
erably enlarged, and we can supply thi
allies with all of the meat product
which transportation facilities rende:
possible and at the same time some
what Increase our own consumption
In these circumstances the Food Ad
ministration considers It wise to rela:
the voluntary restrictions on meat con
sumption to some extent with a viev
to further decreasing bread consump
Conservation of food must be ad
lusted to meet necessities from time t(
time, for neither production, nor al
lied demands are constant factors. no:
can any of these factors be anticipate(
for long periods in advance In the dls
turbed conditions In which we at pres
ent live. While the world situation Ii
not one that warrants any relaxatfoi
in the efforts to eliminate waste or t<
relax economy in food, the AdmLinIs
tration desires to secure better adjust
ment in food balances.
So long as the present condition
continue the only special restriction.
we ask are the beefless and porkies!
The meatless meal and the porkiesi
Saturday are no longer asked.
The farmers of the United Statei
are responding to the national call t<
increase hog production. Their in
crease, to all appearances, Is being at
tained more rapidly. Of more imme
diate Importance, however, are severa
complex factors which have effecte&
an Immediate increase in meat sup
The transportation shortage befor'
the government took over the rail
roads, the bad weather In January an4
early In February, the large percent
age of Immature corn in the last har
vest and the necessity of feeding this
corn as rapidly as possible to save I1
from decay, have not only resulted It
acking up the animals-particular:
hogs-on the farms for a longer pe
riod of feeding, but have resulted in
great Increase in their average weigh1
and will result, with Improved trans
portation conditions, which already ap
pear, in larger than normal arrivals al
market for the next two or threi
months. The weight of hogs comini
to the market for the past two weeks
indicates an Increase In weight oj
from an average of 203 pounds las1
year to the almost unprecedentei
average of 232 pounds, or a net In
crease in their meat value of over lV
per cent This Is a distinct additiot
to the nation's meat supply. It there
fore now seems certain that we havy
such enlarged supplies for at leas1
smne Innths tp come, that we can nol
only tncrease our exports to the allies
to the full extent of their transports
tion facilities, but at the same time
can properly Increase our domnestit
The response of the public to our re
qroests for reduced consumption o:
meat during the past few months has
been most gratifying, and this service
alone has enabled the government dur
tg this period to provide such sup
plies as tranaportation to the allie!
The A dministration also suggest:
that in those parts of the countra
where the old fashioned home preser
ation of pork Is still the custom, thi
practice should be ertended at th<
present time, as it will relieve the bur
den upion transportation to and frot
the packing houses and is economical
y smmdv as savtng the cost of packin,
opm-tions and at the me time wi]
pmvide home supplies of pork to las
o'er the months of decreased supplli
The Food Administration desires ti
repeat that It does not want to gtv
the impression that these are 'ine!
when simplicity and moderation of 11i
ug are act critically necessa.ry, be
that its solo desime is to secure an ad
jMmrent between our different foo<
supes and meet ch?angina codition!

UNABLE TO MOVE
Give.; Tanlac Credit for Working
Great Change for Him.
SPEAKS TO THE PUBLIC.
Declares He Quickly Was Changed
from Almost an Invalid to a Vig
From a condition from which hel
suffered so that he had to be helped
around, Ora H. Rogers, of 1009 Kos
suth St., New York, was changed into
a vigorous man who could walk miles
without having pains. Because of
this remarkable benefit, Mr. Rogers
said, "I praise Tanlac above all other
medicines, because," as he publicly
stated, "Tanlac worked the change."
Mr. Rogers' statement is so interest
ing and holds such encouragement for
others that it is given word for word.
"I suffered from rheumatism and
I pains so bad that I often had to be
helped when I walked across the
room," he said. "That was only a few
r weeks ago, and now I can walk miles
without suffering any pains.
"I will say right here," he contin
ued," that rheumatism and stomach
trouble are the worst things a man
can have. I had pains down my legs
and through my body. I had to sit
down for hours, but this only gave me
a little relief."
"I tried many medicines, but not
one of them seemed to do me a parti
cle of good. I kept hearing such good
reports from epople of what Tanlac I
was doing for others that I decided
to give it a trial. The first bottle
gave me some relief from thase dread
ful pains in my legs and back.
"As I kept on with Tanlac I began
to feel like a new man. The pains
passed away, I coul-! ,o anywhere I
wanted, and. as I said, travel miles
by myself. You can imagine how I
felt to finally find a medicine with
such merit as this wonderful Tanlac."
