Statement From State Food
Study of the situation develops
that America must depend largely
upon flour for success in the war
with Germany. There is plenty of
wheat in Australia, but we have too
few ships to send so far. Our asso
ciates rn the war must depend up
on America for their supply of
flour. The strictest kind of econo
my must be practiced in the use of
flour in every household in order to
feed the armies.
To meet this condition the Amer
ican people must cut down the con
sumption of flour by about 35 per
cent, or possibly more.
Corn and other substitutes must
be used as far as possible.
Hoarders of flour, whether indi
viduals, firms, or associations, sub
ject themselves to a penalty of four
years' imprisonment or a fine of
$10,000, or both. Retailers who
aid or abet in hoarding of flour ren
der themselves liable to the same
Flour in towns and cities should
be sold in eighth to quarter barrel
quantities; in rural and farm com
munities in quarter and half barrel

The dealers must notify all oth
er dealers in the community who
do not know of the rules. Reports
of violations should be made to thc
Food Administration, Arcade Bldg.,
Columbia, S. C. Prompt investiga
tion will follow every reported case.
Sugar should bc sold in towns and
cities in two to five pound lots; in
rural and farm localities in from
five to ten pound lots. This regula
tion must be strictly adhered to.
Every retailer should use precau

Dealers are prohibited from
making combination sales of sugar
and other commodities, except that
of cornmeal. The dealer in his dis
cretion may require the consumer
to purchase two pounds of cornmeal
irith one pound of sugar. This rul
ing is made for the purpose of in
creasing thc use of cornmeal and
thereby saving flour.
The people of South Carolina
must remember these facts:
Practically all flour must bc haul
ed from the West. The corn crop
this year was large. Many grist
mills have been erected. By using
more corn meal and reducing the
consumption of flour, freight cars

mies are assured of a plentiful sup

Getting Ready for the
On the battle fields of Europe men are dying by
thousands. Our sons or brothers or other relatives
will soon be active participants. We fear the roll
of the dead or injured may be brought across the
ocean within a few months, although we hope for
the contrary. These men who have cheerfully of
fered their persons as a sacrifice to a noble cause
are appealing to us by thought, if not by word, for
such assistance as we may render. Every dollar
we expend, everything we do, every sacrifice we
make, will assist in protecting the lives and health
of the patriots who are abroad in defense of our
We must not, we cannot, withold anything that
will be of benefit to those splendid men.
While we all should do our part and make all
sacrifices required of us, the appeal for economy
does not mean that less business should be done,
but it does mean that every possible ounce of work
ing power must be devoted to the National pur
pose. This, we are sure, will be the whole aim of
business in 1918.
