U.S. FOOD ADMINISTRATION
IS WHEAT INDISPENSABLE
The question naturally arises, how
ever: To what extent can the wheat
to which we are now accustomed In
our diet be - reduced without Injury
to the health of the Individual or the
Nation? This question -was put by
the Food Administration to a com
mittee or experts recently assembled
in Washington to consider the special
physiological problems involved in the
general problem or wheat conserva
tion. Dr. R. H. Chittenden, Professor ofJ
.rnyaioiogicai unemistry and Dean of
Sheffield Scientific School, Yale.

Dr. Ray Lyman Wilbur, formerlv
Dean of the Stanford Universltv Me.ii.
.cal School; now President of Stanford
The commute .as may be seen, was
composed of the highest phvsioloelcal
authorities In the country. Their
'answer to the question was direct
It Is the scientific opinion of the
committee that in a mixed diet wheat
maybe entirely replaced, without
harm, by other available cereals, name
ly, rice, barley, oata, and corn. How
ever, we should not recommend this
except as an emergency measure.
The committee's particular reason
for not recommending this, apart
from the fact that wheat is perhaps
the most convenient cereal for use
because of its special qualities con
nected with the making of bread in
loaves that will stand up and remain
sweet and palatable for several days,
is that .going without wheat would
be a psychological though not a phy
siological deprivation. We are accus
tomed as a Nation, just as most of
the nations of Europe are, to the use
of wheat bread ,and a sudden break
In our custom would have for some
people a psychological signifiance
more or loss disturbing.
However, if these people" could well
understand the emergency leading to
the change, and 'then could recognize
that they are aiding their country in
the great emergency by making the
change, this psychological disturb
ance would be much reduced.
Exactly this condition of a great
national emergency, to meet which
the loyal and patriotic efforts of all
the people are needed, is the condition
to-day. It is only because of this great
national emergency that the oFod Ad
ministration makes use of this deli
berate Judgment of 'tho physiological
experts called in for advice.
Even under, these circumstances, It
( is recognized that because of econo
' mlc and commercial reasons, not all
oi me people or America can go with
out bread based on wheat, but it is
ceretain that a great many people in
this country can easily do bo. It is
the belief of the Food Administration
that,( for the sake of maintaining the
wheat-bread supply for the armies and
civilians of our fighting associates In
the war, as well as our own soldiers
In France, every patriotic American
who-can possibly do so will be glad
to dispense entirely with wheat from
now until the next harvest.

TO ALL FOOD ADMINISTRATION
"We can not administer the food
problem on the basis one year's war.
. We must prepare for Its long contin
uance if we are to insure absolute vic-
tory," declared the Food Controllers
of the United States, France, Italy and
Great Britan ' in a. joint resolution
adopted at a conference In London.
. The resolution, which was cabled to-
day to the United States Food Ad
ministration, emphasizes the' neces
sity of building up reserves in North
America as-an insurance against pos
. hible prop failSres here 'and' else
where and the diminution of agrl
, cultural labor. The cabW follows1:

tion of waste In the consumption and
handling of all foodstuffs, as well as
increased production, should be main
tained throughout the European Al
lied countries and In North America.
It is only by such economy and eli
mination or waste that the transpor
tation of the necessary men and sup-
piles irom worm America to the
European front can be accomplished
and the shocks or foodstuffs can be
built up In North America as an in
surance against the ever-present dan
ger of harvest failure and the pos
sible necessity fur large and 'emer
gency drafts to Europe. We cannot
administer the foud problem on tho
basis or one year's war. We must
prepare for its long continuance if we
are to Insure absolute victory."
Before the war. onlv nhniit in nor
cent of the food deficit in the Allied ; '
countries was provided by America. I
Approximately f 50 per cent of the
Allied deficit was filled last year by
the United States and vCanada. And
from th 1918'crops we wilV very prob
ably be called upon to supply a much
larger proportion of this ever-increasing
' About 1,500,000 tons of shipping
could be saved If we made it possible
to withdraw ships now taking to
Europe food from Australia, India
and South America. ' Wore this done,
it would be possible to transport and
maintain in France a much larger
f American soldiers. Many of
the difficulties of convoy could be
overcome if the bulk of shipping
plied the single lane between Europe
and North America. Interpreted in
terms of men on the fighting front,
every ship diverted from Australia
could perform an equivalent service
from American ports and iu the time
it hud taken for one round trip from
Europe to Australia could make two
additional trips from Europe to the
United States. In other words, it
could furnish Europe with the sarr.'i
amount of food a:id in the same
length of time could make one trip
as a troop ship and another to trans
port additional food.
With men leaving - our farms in
ever increasing number to engage
in direct war work, we probably see
this year the height of our agricul
tural production. To protect our
selves and the Allies against the in
evitable shortHgo of the future we
must take advartage of this year's
production to lay by -reserves.
Although .public eating places ml
households which voluntarily went to
a no-wheat basis earlier in the year
have been released from their promise
to forego entirely tho use of wh :,
they must still practice economy.
Release from their pledge only place
them on the same basis as the rest, of
the American people. Probably n
long as the war lasts they must use
Victory bread. 1'hey niU3t faa ai
rigid economy in other directions.
Especially is this true at present in
the case of sugar. Tho American peo
ple as a whole are expected to adopt
on August 1, an honor ration of two
pounds of sugar per person per
SUGAR SUPPLY. -
1. Where does America get her sugar?
Cuba More than one-half.

Porto Rico, the Philippines, Miscel
laneous sources the remainder.
2. Where did the Allies formerly get
France, Italy, and the Low Coun
tries raised their own. England re
ceived more than one-half from the
Teutonic Empires, imported largely
from Java, and got a little from the
British West Indies.
3. Where do the Allies now get their
The Central Powers as a source
are cut off. Production in Italy and
France Is only about one-third what
itjwas before the war. They must de
plnd very largely now upon America
sources of supply.
4. Are there no supplies of sugar in
the East Indies?
There are quantities of sugar in
Java and some in other islands; but
ship can not be spared for trips to
Java while sugar "can be obtafned else
were by one-third the haul.
5. Why is there need to conserve
sugar now in this country?
To meet the Allied shortage.
To release ships formerly used in
the sugar trade to carry soldiers and
supplies to Europe, , "
To make up the loss of beetsugar
lands and factories captured or
destroyed by the Germans in northern
France and Italy. t
hhtps which would have kept up
the now of sugar have been sunk.
rwenty-six tnousana tons of sugar
were lost recently in submarine raids
upon our Atlantic coast. Fifty thou
sand tons of sugar-carrying shipping
were transferred to meet the require'
ments of Belgian relief. :
6.' Is there danger pf a sugar famine?
No; but there is a shortage as com
pared with the prewar days when
Americans used more than 80 pounds
per capita per year. If our people will
follow the. directions of the Food Ad
ministration liberal compared with
the rules of England, France and
Italy there" will be sufficient sugar
for our needs.

3. How is the Food Administration
bundling distribution of sugar?
Lao oi sugar in manufacturing any
thing but foodstutis an dexplosives
has been forbidden; manufacturers of
sott drinks, candy, aad oilier less es
sentials have been rigidly restricted;
the supply of sugar to ice cream
makers and bakers has been cur
tailed. For ordinary household use
not more than t pounds can be bought
at one time for town and city resi
dents, and not more than 5 pounds at
one time fur . country people except
at .the discretion of the Federal Food
Administrator for the State or his
9. What restrictions have been placed
on public eating houses in regard to
For every 90 meals served not
more than 2 pounds of sugar may be

Federal Food Administrators iu the
various States may make ru'iugs to
suit local conditions in regard ta
sugar for home canning.
11. Are civilians to consider them
selves on a dennite sugar ration?
Yes. They are in honor bound to
use not more than 2 pounds per per
son per month. They are directed
to use sugar substitutes as much as
they can. Substitutes include corn
sirup, honey, maple sugar, mapie
sirup, sorghum, fruit, fruitjuices, etc.
12. What is the sugar ration at pres
ent in yugiaud, Fiance and Italy?
England 2 pounds per person per
France 1 1-2 pounds per person per
month, including all foods and drinks
Italy 1 pound per person per
These rations are not ' guaranteed.
They represent the maximum under
present rationing systoms, if the
sugar can be obtained.
13. Does the 2 pound ration for house
holders include sugar for canning?
No; not as a general policy. A limit
ed amount of sugar is allowed for
preserving fruits at home. However,
it is urged that everyone eat leas
than 2 pounds" if possible," so that
throughout the country more may be
available for canning.
14. How can sugar for home, canning
By applying to the Federal Food
Administrator of your State, or his
deputy in your vicinity. Usually cer
tificates must be signed by persons
who wish to secure sugar for canning.
These certificates are to be returned
to the Federal Food Administrator
of the States by the dealers who sell,
the sugar. Thus a check is kept on
15. Why does the Food Administra
tion at present encourage canning
Because perishable fruits would be
lost if not canned. If fruit is steri
lized and air excluded, sugar will nof
be needed as a preservative and
enough sugar can be added when the
fruit Is eaten to make it palatable. '
16. Cah jams and Jellies be made later
when sugar is more plentiful?
Yes; from the fruit pulp and juices
that have been sterilized and canned
or bottled without sugar.
17. How small an amount of sugar
can be used in making jams, jellies,
anu preserves wnicli depend upon
iu jar as wcl as sterilization for their
se.-pins qualities? .,
Allow .no more than three-fourths
t.a pound of sweetening to each

pound of fruit. One-half pound for
s'.veci fruits is enough.
IS. Can sugar substitutes be used In
Yes. Corn sirups and other table
sirups nut niiiile from granulated
su'rur can be used with sugar
In some parts of the country
suitable v&Kcties of canned sirups
and soi'Kiiums arc available for pre
serving v:i;hout adding any sugar.
19. How else may fruits be saved
without the use of Bugar?
Some fruits may be dried; others
may bo stored in a cool cellar. Fruit
pulp may be evaporated tj a paste,
thus concentrating the natural fruit
20. How do suar prices hofe comnare
! with those in other countries?
Net wholesale, prices of refined
sugnr per pound in chief cities of
Allie.1 countries since sugar control
was established in the United States
by the Food Administration:
Oct. 1, 1917. New York, $0.0818, Mon
treal, $0.0SG7, London, $0.01)98, Paris,
$0.1228, Rome, $0.26.1..
May 1, 191S. New York .073, Montreal,
.0S07, London .1259, Paris. .1228,
21.- What is the average retail price
of sugar in the United States.
From 8 1-2 to 10 cents a pound,
varying sightly in different localities.
During the Civil War sugar sold at
retail for 35 cents a pound, when
there was lio real shortage. Specula
tion then was rampant; now it has
been checked by Food Administra
22. Hffw have prices been rcnihited?
By voluntary agreement with pro
ducers and refiners with regard to
the price of the raw sugar and re
finers' margins, and by establishing
maximum margins for wholesalers
23. Would our prices ne higher If
there were no control of sugar?
The price would. In the face of the'
world shortage have momitel rapid
ly, as it has in countries where no
control exists. As the American peo
plo consume upward of S,000,00u,0(jn
pounds annually, each cen per pound
increase would cost the people more
than $80,000,000 a year.
24. Horn can I know whether my
grocer Is charging excessive prices
Consult the list of "fair prices" put
lished in tho newspapers fir write
directly to the State Food Adminis
trator or his representative in your
25. What penalty Is there tor tho
small retail grocer who is found
guilty of charging excessive prices?
Wholesalers, all of whom operate
under Ferleral licenses issued by the
Food Administration, mny cut off his
26. What is sugar hoarding?
Having on hand more than is need
ed for a reasonable length of time
You . should not fail to return my
unused balance of sugar purch wed
for canning purposes.
27. May a household have a month's
supply of sugar on hand?
This Js not justifiable except in ex
treme cases where there, are no stores
available for purchase, and It should
be done only upon advice of the Fed
eral Food Administrator or his
28. .What are some of the evil effects
of hoarding?, . ,
It throws the d stribution system
out of Joint;, it raises prices; it im
poses a heavier burden upon those al
ready doing their utmost; it results
in waste where there are no proper
facilities for stjrago; It discourages
29. What is the moral wrong
It is selfish, cowardly, unpatriotic.
It is, in effedis, taking unto one's self
special privileges at a time when all
Americans should be on the same
footing, share and share alike.
30. Is there any punishment
' Yes. The Food Control Act provides
fines of not more than $5,000 and im
prisonment for hoarding by dealers,
manufnciuiers or householders.
GENERAL SUSAR CONSERVATION
31. Is suswr re::euavy in the diet?
Neither cmo, nor beat suprar ' Is
j necessary. In the awrnre American
diot. all the bod ly- nee Is may ordln
I arily l e swpliel by using honey,
j sirup, fresh pret-erved and dried
fruits. - ,
32. What arc the general sugar sav-
Use al sugar sparingly and wh-we-
ever possible use substitutes. Be spar
ing of confections and sweet cakes.
The American people last year spent
enough mney for candy to feed all
Belgium for two years. Supplement
sugar with honey, maple sirup, and
corn sirup. Cultivate a taste for fruit
in its natural sweetness. Sugar is a
fuel-food. 'Get fuel from potatoes and
other starchy foods rather than from
sugar. Sugar excels them as anl
energy-food only because it produces
energy more quickly. They excel
sugar, since they supply more than
merely the fuel need.
33. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar,
what amount of substitute mny be
used? " -
If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar,
use in its place 1 cup of strained
honey or 1 2-3 to 2 cups of corn sirup.
If honey or sirup is used, the amount
of liquid called for in the recipe must
be reduced one-fourth cup for every
cup of honey or sirup.
34. How may the sugar ration be ex
pressed in quantities known to every
one? Two founds per month means about
8 ounces per week, or a little more
than 1 ounce a day. This daily ra
tion is a trifle more than 2 tablespoons
level full. It should be r6membered
that this Is to include all sugar used
for any purpose whatsoever for
table use, cooking, In ice cream and
desserts, on cerealj or fruit, in sugar
sirups used on giildle cakes, etc.
DISCUSSES DOCTRINE OF LABOR.
Frank P. Walsh, of War Labor Board,
Says Its Principles Are Pr'ivin
"The Presidential Doctrine of La
bor" is tho subject of an article con
tributed by Frank P. Walsh, chairman
of the National War Labor oliard, to
the August number of the Forum.
"A great deal that is said concern
ing tho mysterious influence of the
National War Hoard of Labor is mis
leading, although true as to tho chief
impression that the Board is making
a success of its principles," says Mr.
Walsh. "There is nothing mysterious
about its operations excepting what
it has shown in its recommendations,
which in themselves reveal the mys
terious change of heart that has come
over the relations of capital and labor
as a result of the awakening" impulse
of tho war.
"The presidential doctrine which
embodied the individual duty of all
men during the war, is well under
stood, if 1 say that it is my opinion
that labor understood it first, before
capital looked into it with full percep
tion of its supreme forces, I mean that
labor is. no longer in ignorance of war
obligations. The War Labor Board
has had exceptional advantages of ob
servation. The principles upon which
it was directed under the President's
proclamation, to govern relations be
tween workers and employers have de
veloped to be sound an dadaptable to
the many changing conditions of dis
turbance between them."

Solution of Transportation Problem
for War Workers Was Simple
V. hen Attacked in Right Way.
Street-car trouble congestion and
inadequate service have arisen in
ninny places where war industries
h;ivo transformed overnight a small
city to a busy factory center, perhapf
of quadrupled .population. The Do

partment have been faced with many
In one such place the street car com
pany was unable to provide service for
the war wirkers, most of whom were
forced to live at long distances from
the principal factory, and as a result
the men gradually dropped away from
work. The factory owners became des
perate, and with only a smal force
left on the Job decided to attempt a
dangerous remedy lengthening the
working day to get more done by the
men who were left.
This plan led ti a crisis, and the
Government was 'obliged to take a
hand. The (ordnance department sent
an official from Washington to inves
tigate ami he discovered that the
trouble was not lack of cars but lack
of men to run them. The reined v he
proposed was simple lie advised
choosing experienced street-car men
from among the factory workers to
make trips on the cars morning and
night to take the others to and from
work. The solution proved thorough

proved a serious alteration was
