FOOD ADMINISTRATION APPEALS
TO PEOPLE TO CONSUME SUR.
PLUS AND AVOID WASTE.
Columbia, S. C.-In a letter sent
-out by William Elliott, Food Admin.
istrator for South Carolina, to the re
tail grocers throughout the State, at.
tention is called to the big surplus in
rish potatoes, and the retailers are
rged to push their sales. The ap.
eal is made by the Food Adminis
tration to the people of the State that
they cat more potatoes and consume
the big surplus during the next few
weeks in order that a tremendous
waste may be avoided.
There are in South Carolina at the
present time 40,000 bags of potatoes
in,hands of the wholesalers and 10,000
bags in the hands of the retailers. It
is estimated by the Federal Food Ad
ministration that the surplus this year
over normal times is 110,000.000 bush
els. The new crop will be coming in
in a few weeks to add to this surplus.
"It woul dbe a crying siame inl this
time of food shortage for this surplus
in potatoes to go to waste," says Mr.
Elliott in his letter to the retallers.
Farmers Were last year urged to
plant big potato crops in order to re
love file foo(' situation, and did so
atriotically, and at present prices,
says Mr. Elliott, Irish potatoes are not
only the most plentiful food, but they
are the cheapest food that consumers
Wholesalers at different points in
the State are selling potatoes at from
one dollar to two dollars a bag less
than they cost then..
