lug on the problem of marketing of
home-canned products for the past
two months. A number of the lead
ing wholesale ,grocers and jobber s of
the State have not only expressed
their willingness to buy home-canned
fruits and vegetables properly pre
pared for commercial use, but will
give the home-canned product the
preference over Maryland and Vir
ginia packed goods.
The Food Administration has on
file the requirements of several largo
concerns and has been asked to find
the canned products to supply their
needs. Thousands of cans of fruits
and vegetables can be readily sold,
but the packers will be required, as a
matter of course, to conform to cer
tain trade rules.
In the first place, the price must be
ins conformity with that for which
Maryland and' Virginia packed goods
can be bought.
Canned products should not be of
rfeid for the wholesale trade except
in large lots. It is suggested that
damers and others who desire to put
uptruits and vegetables for the market
form marketing agencies, in order that
their product may be handled in larg
ct lots to a greater advantage.
The grades must be uniform and
certain standards maintained. The
canned product must of course be put
up in uniform cases, and the cans uni

The Food Administration will make
no purchases or sales, but it may serve
as a connecting link to bring the pack

As has already been announced,
there will be plenty of cans and jars

SHOWN TO BE FALSE
Columbia-Reports in circulation
to the effect that Food Administration
officials had stated no further con
nervation of wheat was necessary have
sheen nailed as unfouded in a telegram
s'eceived by William Elliott, State food
administrator-, from Herbert Hoover.
'No r~iatement of this character has
ever been issued," says Mr. Hoover,
and the federal food administrator
then states frankly the exact situation
twhich emphasizes the absolute neces
afty of even greater conservation of
.wheat than3 the American people have
yet praoticed. For that reason the up
peal was recently made to the Ameri.
.can people, through the churches, by
Mr. Hoover. asking that every one
who possibly can do so discontinue
eting wheat or wheat products in any
'form until the next harvest.
It la stated in Mr. Hoover's tole
gram that American supplies of wheat
until the next harvest allow a home
coasumption of not mere t'ian otie
third of normal, if America is to inm
* tain allied supplie-that is, the send
'ig of wheat to Europe, as this coun
4ry is pledged to do.
At the beginning of May, there were
In farmers' hands and in storage in
America about 75,000,000 hpashele of'

RELATION TO LIFE
Every Bushel Saved Now Will
Supply a Soldier With Bread
Until Next Harvest
Columbia.-One bushel of wheat
will care for the bread needs of one
man from now until the next harvest.
This means that every bushel of
wheat that is saved in this country
by the substitution of cornmeal and
other cereals will supply an American
or a British or a French or a Belgian
or an Italian soldier with bread until
the present crisis in the wheat situa.
tion has passed.
Wheat, must now be considered, not
in terms of dollars and cents, says the
Food Administration, but only in its
relation to human life.
Before the next wheat crop is avail
able there remains more than two
months in which America is required
to feed her own people and to con
tinue exports of flour to the fighting
front and to feed the people of the

>DD PELLOWS ASKED TO
GIVE UP EATING WHEAT
ColmbI.-Lodges of Odd Fellows
brouighout South Carolina and the
individual members of this great or
ganisation have been called upon by
the officers of the Sovereign Grand
Lodge for support of the program of
the Foeod Administration to save
wheat. All Odd Fellows are urged
through the Sovereign Grand Lodge
to voluntarily abstain from the use of
wheat foods until after the next bar-!
rest.' There are in the United States
about 2,300,000 Odd Fellows. The
membership of this order in South
Carolina is very large, and there Willy
no doubt be" a generous and a patri
otic response to the appeal to save
wheat to help feed the fighting forces
of America and the allies and the
people of the allied countries.
To warte wheat is to waste young~
