Food Administration Outlines
Policy to Meet Desperate
The National Food Administration is
anxious to impress the message of
conservation to the utmost. The. peo
ple of the country at largo do not ap
preciate the demand for whoat. 'ie
Food Administration at Washington
has atlessed the situation in this na
tion wide proclamation:
"If we are to furnish the allies with
the necossaty proportion of wheat to
maintain their war bread from now
until the next harvest, and this is a
military necessity, we must reduce
our monthly consumption to twenty
one million bushels a month as against
our normal consumption of about for.
ty-two million bushels or fifty per cent
of our normal consumption, reserving
a margin for distribution to the army
and for special casos, leaves for gen
oral conaumption approximately one
an one-half pounds of wheat products
woolly per person. Many of our cus
tomers are dependent upon bakers'
bread, such bread must be durable,
and therefore requires a larger pro
portion of wheat products than cereals
baked in the household. Our army
and navy requires a fill allowance.
The well to do in our population can
make greator sacrifices in the con
sumption of wheat products than can
the poor. To effect the neoded sav
igs of wheat. we are wholly deepoil
ent upon the voltintary asilsta:ce of
