A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpose In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armies In Europe
In response to an urgent appeal
from the British Ministry of Food
for increased shipments of butter
from Canada the Candian Government
has commandeered all creamy butter
made in the provinces of Alberta,
Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and
Quebec between September 30th and
November 9th inclusive, and put
Canadian consumers on an allowance
of two pounds of creamy butter per
person per month.
Great Britain and the Allies have
been short of butter for many months,
and although an Englishman's allow
ance is only one-half pound of butter
and one pound of oleomargarine a
month, the government finds it diffi
cult to maintain this meagre ration.
The principle of the "Common Table"
is the basis of this order limiting the
consumption of creamy butter in Can
ada. If tonnage permitted greater
shipments of butter, Canada would no
doubt, limit home consumption still
further in order to supply a fairer ra
tion for the English table.

How County Is Divided
At a meeting of the Maui commit
tee held hist Tuesday afternoon, the
$140,000 still to be raised on Maui's
Stamp quota was allotted to the vari
ous district? as follows:
liana District $ 3r.00.00
Fuunone . ! 24000.00
The chairmen of the various dis
tricts were instructed to list the res
idents of their district with a view
to finding every possible Limit Club
man, woman or business firm possi
ble. There is no time now to expect
to raise much through Thrift Stamp
sales, and all energy is to be devoted
to getting big subscriptions.
Pecause a man may have bought
the limit amount $84 I worth, does not
debar his wife and each of his chil
dren from also becoming members of
the Limit Club, and it is the inten
tion to urge as much of this kind of
buying from now on as possible.
Corporations Urged To Buy
A large number of large and small
corporations and firms on Maul are
to be 'solicited. $844 is not a large
amount for the average company to
invest, and should not take very much
effort for any concern to convert that
much of its assets into a gilt-edged
Schools Have Done Well
Something over half of the quota
for Maui has been raised since the
first of the year, largely through the
enthusiasm of the children in the
schools. In fact the school children
have caught the idea, and have done
most remarkably well. If the rest of
the community had done half is well
as the children, Maul would long since
have gone over the top.

requests that arrangements be made
to have the grain corporation take
over the substitutes in the hands of
dealers in Hawaii.
In as much as this cannot be done,
the 80-20 substitute program will be
continued until all the stocks of sub
stitutes in the islands are exhausted.
Merchants will continue to sell one
pound or more substitutes with every
four pounds of flour, and bakers will
continue to make vijtory bread until
further notice. v
