Of FOOD SUPPLY
Power Given Department of Justice to
Combat High Cost of Living.
Washington, Nov. 21.-President
Wilson today placed the government
again in control of the -nation's food
supply by transfeerring the authority
of food administrator to Attorney
General Palmer. Revival of the war
time functions of Administrator Hoov
er resulted directly from government
efforts to avert a famine in sugar, bpt
the powers delegated to the head of
the department of justice will be used
to help put down the ever mounting
cost of living.
For the present the attorney gen
eral will not put into operation all of
the machinery permitted under the
executive order signed by the presi
dent but should conditions arise to
make it necessary the full pressure of
all the broad power vested in him will
be executed to meet them.
Mr. Palmer's staff will begin imme
diately to build up a sugar distribut
ing system which will allocate all
sugar stocks in the country. It will
provide an equitable system of distrib
uting supplies and will defeat any con
centration or hoarding officials said.
Price Will Go Up.
Plans, tentatively decided upon, pro
vide for increasing the price of all
sugar, excepting the Louwsana crop for
which a price of 17 cents already has
been fixed, to 2 cents a pound, whole
Throug hlihe increase, new sources
of supply are expected to be opened.
With assurances that a fair margin of
profit, said to be about $1.54 a hundred
pounds, would be allowed, sugar re
finers are ready to enter the Cuban
markets and purchase all available
stocks, it was stated. Thus, officials
believe, the increased price will avert
a shortage which threatens to become
a famine during the next 60 (lays. Im
mediate action also is contempalted in
curtailing the consumption of sugar by
manufacturers whose products are not
regarded as essentian food. This will
apply particularly to soft drink deal
ers and candy manufacturers. The ab
normal increase of sales of these ar
ticles and the consequent heavy drain
on the sugar supply is traceable, of
ficials declared, to the enforcement of
Cut to Be Made.
While it has not been definitely de
termined, the cut in sugar supplies to
these classes of trade probably will. be
about 60 per cent. Officials indicated
that if the exigencies of the situation
demanded, they would reduce the al
lowance to soft drink and candy
plants to 25 per cent. of their normal
Arrangements have been completed
subiect to changing conditions of the
sugar situation, whereby beet and cane
sugar refiners will enter the Cuban
markets immediately. The department,
however, will exact a signed agree
ment with firms entering that trad,
to consign all of their purchases t i
this country. This will mean that
American dealders will iret a large pro
p~ortion of the 4.000,0('0 tons of raw
siuear yet available in 1Cuba, officials
Normal consumption of sugar in the
United States is about 4.000.000 tons.
In other years about 3,000,000 tons
was imported from the Cuban fields to
which was added the average produc
tion of approximately 1,000.000 tons of
native grown. But officials were
.alarmed lest European dealers shoulM
continue their heavy purc'hases al
ready in excess of 1.000.000 'tons, in
Cub~an markets and dleprive this coun
try of the full supply it usually gets
there. The refiners wvho have agree I
to go into the Cuban trade have been
urged, it was said, to use all haste
that the stocks may not be exhausted
.before this nation is supplied.
The danger of a sugar famine will
be. greater next month, it was said.
as stocks are ranidly being denleted
and in many sections already exhaust
ed and the necessity for garnering a'll
available supplies from outside, be-.
conmes daily more urgent.
