W ASHINGTON, January 27 (Awociated Press) The

cordance with a proclamation issued yesterday by the President
Commencing tomorrow morning, every baker must cease the sale
of all-wheat-flour products, under penalty of losing his license for

"Victory Bread is the name under which this war bread will
be old, the name having been coined yesterday by Herbert Hoo
ver, the food administrator. ' . -
In addition to' prohibiting the further baking of wheat flour
bread in the future,' the President, in his proclamation addressed
to the loyal people of the United States, ;aks that there be a gen
eral further reduction in the consumption of meats and pork, in
order that .there may be a greater surplus of these for exoort to the
Allies of the United States, Whose
ana tor trie American army in the field, which is growing steadily.
MAINLY VOLUNTARY COMPLIANCE .. .. ,,
Compliance with the requests of the President is tp be 'volun
tary on the consuming public,', but obligatory on the bakers and
on a few others, but it is plainly stated that if the request for a'
voluntary compliance is" not met with good faith and obdience, on
the part of the public steps will, be taken to enforce the terms' of
the proclamation and provide penalties for non-compliance.' '
The chjef features of the proclamation deal with the obligation
upon all bakers to furnish no all-wheat-flour bread in future and
the obligation upon hotels, restaurants and bakery food counters
to use no all-wheat-flour bread. Commencing tomorrow morning,
no bread is to be baked by a licensed baker containing less than
five percent of some other cereal than wheat, which percentage of
substitution is to be increased until by February 24 no bread will
be baked containing less than twenty percent substitute flour. '
"Victory Bread" after this morning will be thelonly wheat flour
bread served in hotels, restaurant and lunch rooms.

and .Sundays.
Tuesday will be a 'meatless day, with every other day of the
week having one meatless meal.
Tuesday will also be a porkless day, as will Saturday.

it now lies with America to decide

throw its force, into the field.
"I linve not minced words because I
am convinced that the American people,
if they know the truth, will not hesi
tate to meet the emergency."
Mr. Hoover's reply was:
"We will export every grain thai
the American people save from their
normal consumption. We believe our
people will not fail to meet the enter

are proving to be even greater than
had been anticipated and greater taxes
will have to be imposed upon the peo

I'nder these circumstances, says the
way. and means chairman it wo Id
not be wise at this time to consider
uy general amendments to the War
Revenue Act, such aa have been nu
merously proposed since the passing
of that legislation, the amendments
suggested being mainly for the purpose
of removing certain ambiguities an. I
of equalizing some of the assessment.
The act will have to be materially
amended later In order to provi.l for

valuable time to tinker with it now.
The necessary equalizing amendments
can be takeu up when the act is be

Central Powers Leaders Forced

(Associated Press)
How desperate is the situation
of the gn eminent leaders of
Austria atul (.ermany in their
efforts to control ,i starving pop
ulace atul force the continuance
f the war is indicated in des
atclies received from neutral
countries. In Austria Czernin
wa forced to plead with the
Reichsrath, and through that
Sody with the peoplfc, lot a fttr
her exhibition of patience on
heir part. This plea he present
d during his Speech before the
Reichsrath ot Friday.
The dominant note of Czer
lin'R speech, sounded frequently
through it. is the admission thai
Austria is starving and must
have food. To secure it he begs
'or time to secure a peace with
the Ukraine and with Petrograd
"If you attack me in the rear
and compel me to conclude a
;reaty in haste no economical ad
vantages can be secured. Have
vet a little patience, restrain your
.lesires yet a little further," the
premier and foreign minister is
reported to have said in hi
speech, as reported in despatches
from Basel.
MUST HAVE FOOD
"I wish to secure for our use
the foodstuffs from those sec
:ions of Russia which could be
made available for us and to ob
tain these 1 would make peace
with Russia and with the Uk
raine," he continued. . "It is the

URGENT PLEA
Thus the dominant 'note of hl
speech was a plea for support in
he present crisis and in making
hat plea he has been forced to
make known the desperate strait
in which Austria is placed for
food. '
"W'e do not desire anything
from roland,'? he; said. "We will
let that country settle its own des

sia, whence wo may secure the
'ood for' which the people cry."
He asserted he could sec no rea
son why those peace negotiations
should fail.
Want Separate Peace.
Despatches from Petrograd said ad
vice received there told of an ex

ustrin to conclude peace with Russia
on a basis approaching the Buaaiun

Germany to accept those term. The
