Thousands of Customers-—ln
sures Greater Food Saving.
Grocers of tha nation have accepted
enthusiastically tha 50-50 basis for tha
porchiiaa of wheal hour and are doing
their utmost (o explain the new regu
lation to the housewife. This ruling by
the U. 8. Food Administration requires
each purchaser of wheat Sour to buy
ona pound of cereal substitute, one
kind or assorted, for every pound of
wheat flour. It was necessary to re
strict the use of wheot flour In order
that the allies and our lighting forces
abroad might be assured of an ade
quate supply of wheat to meet their
vital needs. This supply must come
from our savings because we have al
ready sent our normal surplus
Wheat saving pledge cards were for
warded by the Food Administration to
■ll retail food merchants, and these
are being signed end posted In stores
throughout the country. This card
stales "We pledge ourselves loyally to
carry out the Food Administration pro
gram, In accordance with this order
we will not ee|l any wheat flour except
where the purchaser buys an equal
weight of one or mure of the following,
a greater use of which In the home
will save wheat;
"Cornmeal, corn flour, edible corn
•lurch, hominy, corn grits barley flour,
potato flour, sweet potato flour, soy
bean floor, feterlta flour and meals
rice, rice flour, oatmeal, rolled oats and
Home confusion has resulted no tha
part of tha consumer In construing
this "80-flO" ruling to mean that an
equal amount In value of substitutes
must he purchased with wheal flour.
This la a mistaken Ides The ruling
slates that the consumer to purchasing
floor shall "buy at the same lime an
equal weight of other cereals."
One exception to this ruling Is con
cerning graham flour sad whole wheal
flour, which may bo sold at Ihe ratio
of throe pounds to flv* pounds of
wheal flour. Thta provision Is made
because approximately 25 per cent,
more of the wheat berry Is used In the
manufacture of these flours than stand
ard wheat flour. —v__
Another exception te that concern
ing mixed flours containing lean than
50 per cent, of wheat flour, which may
he sold without substitutes Hrtsllers
however, are forbidden to sell mixed
flours containing more than BO per
cent, of wheat flour to any person un
leas the amount of wheat flour substi
tutes sold la sufficient to make the to
tal amount of substitutes. Including
those mixed In flours, equal to the to
fnl amount In wheat flour In the mixed
flour. For Instance, If any mixed flour
Is purchased containing HO per cent,
wheal flour and 40 per cent, substi
tutes It la necessary that an additional
.’ll per cent of substitutes tie pur
chased This brings It to Ihe basis of
one pound of substitutes for each
pound of wheat flour.
A special exemption may be grunted /
upon application In the rase of special
ly prepared Infanta' and Invalids’ food
containing flour where Ihe necessity la
Home misunderstanding seems lo ox
-Ist on Ihe part of consumers In sssum-
Ing that with the purchase of wheal
flour one mttsl confine the additional
in |>er cent, purchase to one of the
substitutes This Is not the ense. On*
may select from the entire range of
substitutes n sufficient amount of each
to bring the total weight of all substi
tutes equal to the weight of the wheal
flour purchased. For Instance, If a
pun-hate of 24 pounds of wheal flout
Is made a range of aiihstltnfes may be
selected ns follows;
Cornmeal. 8 pounds; com grits, 4
pounds: rice, 4 ponnda; buckwheat, J
pounds; corn starch, 1 pound ; hominy,
2 pounds; rolled oats, 3 pounds.
These substitutes msy be used In
Ihe following manner;
Cornmeal, 8 I*ollollß. —Corn bread, no
flour; corn muffins or spoon bread,
one-fourth flour or one-thlrrt rice oz
one-ihlrd hominy; 20 per cent, substi

Corn Orlta, 4 Pounds.—Fried Ilk*
