FOOD ADMINISTRATION REQUIRES REPORT
ON FLOUR SUPPLIES BE MADE BY MAY 1
to the People of Minnesota:
The Federal Food Administration hereby requires everyone who
has more than 30 days' supply of wheat flour to return the' flour at
once to the dealer or miller from whom it was purchased or report to
his County Food Administrator. This order applies to every one no
matter when or how the flour was obtained. Thirty days* supply is
determined on the basis of 6 lbs. for each member of the household.
A family of four may have 24y2 lbs. of wheat flour, and a family of
eight, 49 lbs. Substitutes may be purchased in any amounts desired.
It is not assumed that having an excess of flour on hand makes
one a hoarder. It does not. In normal times it is an indication of
thrift and sensible buying to purchase flour in reasonably large quan
tities. W do not want any one who is following his normal methods
and has an excess of flour on hand to feel in any way that he has done
wrong. has not.
N E E O O GREAT
But conditions now are far frorn normal, hence this call. America
and the Allies are short of wheat and wheat flour. Th Allies are
driven desperately for food. W are under obligations to furnish the
food. Shipping facilities are limited. Bread they must have and
bread we must furnish them. Th government must know how much
flour there is in the country and where it is. Ou own people must
use other foods which we have in abundance and save flour.
O A I N
Any one who insists on keeping more than one month's supply or
is using more than 6 lbs. per person per month is considered a hoarder
and will be dealt with accordingly. Hoarding of necessary foods is
punishable by a fine of $5,000 or imprisonment for two years or both-.
It is hoped that no one in Minnesota will place himself in the hoarder
class W beg of the people to respond at once to this call and on
before May 1st, 1918, to dispose of any excess flour or report to
their County Food Administrator as follows:

Fill In, Cut Out and Mail to Food Administrator in Your County.
The Minnesota Commission of Pub
lic Safety, has by order, extended the
provisions of the so-called Absent
Voters' Law, Chapter 68, Laws 1917,
with certain modifications, to*th«*pri
mary election to be held June 17,
1918. Under the terms of the order
any person in the military or naval
service of the United States, who is
absent from his election district on
that day may vote by mail. To do
so, however, the absent voter must
first make an application for ballots
in a form prescribed by said order
he must also subscribe to the oath
printed on the back of such form and
mail the application and oath to the
COUNTY AUDITOR OF THE COUN
TY in which he is entitled to vote.
The auditor will then mail the voter
the necessary ballots to be marked
by him, and the envelopes within
which to mail the same to the

When possible, persons sending
these blanks to absent voters should
ascertain and inform the voter the
proper description of the election
precinct in which the voter for whom
it is intended will be entitled to vpte.
He may not know or remember the
ward and precinct number in which
he has his residence. This is espe
cially true as to voters residing in
cities having many election districts.
Attention to this matter on the part
of the "folks at home" will greatly
facilitate the work of the county
auditor and insure the proper cast
ing and counting of the absent voter's
ballot. Blank "applications for bal
lots" may be had without charge by
applying to the county auditor or the

MUST ENLIST OR WORK
Able-bodied loafers are under the
ban. War time necessity makes them
a useless drug on the market, as well
as a drain on the resources of the
country, which at this time cannot be
tolerated. Major John D. Yost Re
cruiting Officer of the Minnesota Dis
trict inaugurated an "Enlist or work"
campaign in several Minnesota towns
recently with much marked result
that he is anxious to make the move
ment statewide. Through the news
papers of the state Major Yost re
quests the co-operation of all munici
pal and county authorities, as well as
Recruiting Committees in pushing
Figures compiled show that there
are at least 15,000 men in the State
outside the draft age who are avail
able for military service, and who are
not engaged in any line of work. Un
cle Sam can use such men, is in need
of them in fact, and can teach them all
a useful occupation. Idle men are
trouble breeders, and the best place
for such men at the present time is in
the the Army where they will be kept
too busy to think of trouble.
The New York State Legislative
Assembly, as well as the Legislature
of the State of Maryland, have enact
ed laws on the above plan that are
already operative. Municipal officers
have welcomed the opportunity to rid
their towns of loafers, and it is expect
ed Minnesota officers will also go after
them with a vengeance.
The needs of the Army are constant
and ever increasing, so every known
means of securing men must be resort
ed to. Secretary of War Baker favors
increasing the draft age limit to 40
years, and prospects are excellent that
his suggestion will be followed by
