the food administration, owing to
its desire to conplete tli numcr-;

holding with the representatives

ducers and consumers. Some two
hundred such conference's have
been held with a view to the'de?

constructive methods of control
It has been the desire of Ihe
food administration to secure the
cooperation of all patriotic men
in the various trades so as io eli
minate speculation, hoarding, un
reasonable profits, wasteful prao
tises, etc., in the great distribu
