S. food administration, .the state of Massachusetts has removed almost all restrictions on its salt water fisheries for the duration of the war. This ac tion is confidents expected to be the berinnlng, of a general loosening of fishing restrictions all over the coun try. Including inland waters. "Lakes and streams la the principal agricultural districts,- said Kenneth Fowler chief of the fisheries section of the U. S. tood administration, "could yield at least 00,000.000 pounds of 'rough, or non-game fish annually. Th.mleht lost as weH'he taken out and distributed among the rand pop ulation for the' mere cost of netting and the future supply still conserved. Under the present stringent fish and -came laws, the supply of rough fish , has become overplenUful;; and at a time when the meat supply of the country is unequal to the demand. Tht moat common of these fish are suck ers bowfin, German carp, buffalo, cal "i Ico'bass, catfish, bullhead, crapple, eel, white perch; yellow perch, pike, perch, rd eye, redfins, red horse, Sacramen to perch. strawberry bass, sunflshes And rock bass.' ' , , Angling with all Its fascination as a sport i uneconomical. The v logical means ot catching fish for food is to ' seine the streams and small lakes - under proper regulations, give the ' game fish their liberty and utilize the classes that are orerplentlful, The administration has no direct power of authorizing such a course, -stated Mr. Fowler -as practically all the fishing grounds of the country are ' pnder the control pf the states. But ' we have pointed out the benefits of - less stringent fish laws as a war meas- ' tire and the Yarious state food admin- jstrators can cecure 'definite action through the governors , and the state iuh nd came , commissions.

The distribution, in ' the opinion ot the administration. should be localised so that the dally - supply in each community will be con sumed at once In the' same commun- ity.

Local merchants and jobbers are not anticipating any further decrease in flour. Flour is now lower than it has been for months, and, unless the price should be forced down by the food commission, is as low as it will ?o until the war is over, so flour ex perts say. It would be higher now than It has ever been, thinks Robert Ii. Looth of Fred L. Waldrou. Ltd. agency for White River flour, if it were not for the control exercised by the food commission. A lucid explanation was Kiven by a salesman in one of the retail groceries as to why "the price of graham flour should be so high as to prohibit its general use among householders. He said it was high because it came in small Quantities, and that it came In small quantities because so little of it -vas sold that it .deteriorated before it was used, and that there was noi much demand for it because it cost more than white flour. There has been no appreciable in crease in the use of graham flour among housewives in Honolulu who do their own baking, if the amount or dered is any . guacc of the amount iisrd. About a month aco there was a spurt of enthusiasm for graham flour but within the week the dejuand ha(i dwindled down to what it was before, which h comparatively no demand at all. Onlypnc store, that of J. M. Levy rona. renorts anything like a growh2f tfemand for graham flour. Wholesalers report the aemana jusi about where it has stood for a long time. In fact, Theo H. Davies & Com nanv's books show that they have sold le.ss this month than last, Hackfeld & Company sell very little, and May a Company are selling just about wnat they usually do. ' Except for imported poods there has not been, any great falling off in the exoenslve stuffs ordered. High priced canned zoods. and it is pretty hard to get any kind of canned goods that are not high priced now, continue to be ia demand. One order clerk who takes possibly more telephone orders a day than anybody el?e in town takes in three, said that she could not notice any difference at all in the orders that were given her. She said she usually knew as soon as she found out who was speaking just about what the or der would be. Foreign goods of course are not being brought into the islandi any more, but the demand for domes tic goods, anything put up in the Unit ed States, remains steady, and show ing the normal Increase that would come from Increased population iu peace times. None of. the buyers anticipates the slightest trouble from shortage in shipping or from iny embargo on -freight from the East and middle West to the Pacific coast. "We have been assured by the San ta Fe that we shall get all the goods we order, so far as their line is con cerned," said one of the big jobbers, "and I feel sure, as does everyone else who has studied the question, that none of our boats will be taken ofl until they can be replaced by other bottoms." - 1 Eggs are scarce, and very high, the cold storage output selling at 60 and 65 cents a dozen. Island eggs can hardly be had at any price and retail at 90 cents a dozen. In SDite of the food commission and the insistence that less butter fat be j use, Just as much is being sold iu Honolulu as was a year ago, with pos sibly a slight increase.

This is due partly to rough ana careless handling in transit but in large, measure also to rust resulting fmm insufficent drying. The United States Food Adminlstra-1 Hon considefs this situation a seriouU nn for several reasons. Plenty of milk '.and ''cream cans are absolutely! necessary for' the proper distribution of the Nation's dairy food supply: yet it Is important not to overload the metal-working industries with orders for new cans. Several larse creameries have instal led machines, for. straightening batter ed cans; also' retlnning equipment by means'of which a fresh tinned surface may be given to cans that have begun to rnsL rtv timelv reDairs of this kind the service is greatly lengthened at a cost much less than that of new cans. But for rarm dairies the following sugges. tions coming from a Federal dairy ex pert will help to make cans and uten sils longer lived even in the absence lor the special, epulpment referred to. After tne cans nave Deen inorougniy washed with luke warm water and washing powder, rinse, and scald. Allow the. cans. to drain until dry and place on a rack with the mouth down, Cans handled in this manner will keep awnaf onii Mson 4 and rotflfn "thplr i bright tinned surface. Si jn addition To the longer service ! which they will give there is the added benefit of purer flavors in the milk and cream shipped In them. Dry, well aired cans help to prevent metallic and musty flavors so frequently en countered in shipped cream. DAIRYING 'WITHOUT A SILO i I There, is a lot of sound philosophy, squarely put for farm consumption, in these words of J.: P. Mason, a widely- known IUinois dairyman, reported by Prairie Farmer: "Within a few milea of me are men trying to dairy without a silo. They are pretty., nearly plumb crazy, of course; it must cost them 54 to $5 (per hundred pounds) to make milk, work and alt I tefl you those fellows don't deserve an Increased price. Then: there .are a lot of men whn rrow neither, clover nor alfalfa. We cannot milk and maker money with out one or the other of these, and we musn't let troubles In growing stand in our way.

TO SAVE WHEAT WASHINGTON. D. C. Order a "stack of corn" or a "stack of kafir" instead of a 4 stack of wheat" cake3 at the hotel or restaurant. Pancakes made of corn or kafir corn dr one of these grains 'with a little wheat flour are fully as palatable and nutritious as cakes made of wheat only, say food specialists of the United States de partment of agriculture. Millions of wheat cakes arc consumed at the American breakfast table every morn ing. Get the "stack of corn" habit and save the wheat. The department is urging restau rants and hotel proprietors to instruct their chefs to prepare and have ready for uso batter for corn cakes etxh morning so that patrons may order corn cakes instead of wheat cakes. Corn cakes have always been popular on the family table. By featuring the "stack of corn cakes on their menus it is believed patrons will be glad to form the "eat more corn" habit at breakfast time. :Corn cakes with syrup are appetiz ing v. and satisfying. The following recipe is recommended: Corn Meal Pancakes 1 cup corn meal, 1 cup flouT ( wheat), 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1-2 tablespoon' sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1 egg,' 1 cup milk. Mix the dry ingredients, add melted butter, well beaten egg and milk. Bake like ordinary griddle cakes. Tractors-are the busy Berthas of agriculture.
