Modification of Pound-for
Pound Law to Relieve Far
The National Food Administration
1 has modified the pound-foi-pound
flour regulation by adopting a sug
gestion wh'ch was agreed upon at
a conference of county food admin
istrators in Columbia last week call
ed by State Food Administrator,
William Elliott. The modification will
permit a farmer who uses meal
ground from the corn which he pro
duces on his farm tc purchase flmr
j without being forced to purchase an
equal weight oi meal or some other
substitute for flour. A farmer will
be allowed to take his corn to a mill
er and have it ground into meal,
signing a certificate which the miller I
will have, stating the number he has
in family, or the number of tenants
for which he buys, and the amount
of flour he has on hand. He will
agree to use in his home equal
weights of flour and substitutes.
Thereupon the miller will issue a
certificate to thc farmer stating the
number of pounds of meal ground.
This certificate is then filed with a
grocer and thereupon the farmer can
purchase an equal weight of flour,
but in no case in excess of one-half
The adoption of this modification |
eliminates practically the only fea
ture of the law whioh has met with
opposition in South Carolina.
It must be understood, however,
that this modification, by the adop
tion of the certificate plan, DOES
NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE until
blank certificates have been furnish
ed the millers by the government.
They arc now being printed and as
soon as I receive them from Mr. El
liott, thc State Food Administrator,
I will send them out to the school
district representatives of the food
administration, and they will place
j them in the hands of the millers.
I Until the certificates are issued by i
the millers in regular form, the j
pound-for-pound law must be observ
ed by merchants as heretofore. All
other consumers, other than farm
J era who are supplied with certifi
cates, will be required to purchase
pound-for-pound substitutes for
flour at thc time flour is purchased.
The sugar shortage will soon be
relieved, as the present supply of
sugar is reasonably adequate, but
the shipping facilities are limited. It
will probably be some time, how
ever, before the restriction upon the
sale of sugar is raised.
The season of the year has come
when our people should be concern
ed about the INCREASE, as well
as the CONSERVATION, of the
food supply. Not only the supply
ing of his own needs, but the high
prices which prevail for all food
stuffs should cause farmers gener
ally to plant largely (and fertilized
well) of all food crops.
The food administrators in thc
rural districts and the citizens gen
erally are urged to agitate and edu-1
cate the people along the line of
planting largely-more largely than
heretofore-of all food crops, both
for man and beast.
J. L. MIMS,
County Food Administrator.
