The action -of the retailers Is ex-

declared in today's statement, only the

: WASHINGTON, D. C Oct 17 Two
subjects are now engaging the particu
lar attention of the Sugar Bureau of
the Food Administration, One of these 1
is the conservation of the available i
sugar supply in order to make it possi
ble to send more sugar to the allies of
the United States in Europe. .The
'second is to devise means of main
taining and if possible increasing the
production of sugar from American
soil during the coming year.
Plans Being Considered
Various plans are being considered
to accomplish each of these results.
One of these is campaign to encour
age a reasonable limitation in the use
of sugar in families. This is directed
specifically to the saving of ten per
cent of the normal consumption of the
United States, this amount to be ap
plied to relieving the serious shortage
among our allies. Another lan that
probably will be put into effect is a
campaign among the farmers o the
western states to encourage a larger
acreage; devoted to sugar beets. De
tails of the plans for accomplishing
these objects have not been fully
worked i out, but it can be said that
both are receiving the careful consid
eration of Mr. Hoover and his associ
ates In the Food Administration. ,
It is realized that these proposed
measures can have no immediate ef
fect In relieving the invitable scarcity
of sugar in certain sections of the coun
try between the present time and the
date when new crop ,cane sugar be
come available. The Judicious distri
bution of the beet sugar crop which Is
being conducted by. the committee of
beet sugar men sitting In Chicago, is
expected to take care of urgent re
quirements.! the western two-thirds
of the country and to relieve to some
extent though not entirely, the im
pending shortage in the East The Food
Administration is much encouraged by
tne course followed both by the trade
and 1 by consumers In limiting pur
chases to immediate needs, and it is
hoped that by a continuation of this
policy any very serious inconvenience
may be avoided. On this subject Mr.
Hoover yesterday gave out the follow
There will be a temporary1 shortage
in the supply of sugar to the area
north! of Savannah and " east of Pitts
burg during the latter part of October
ana the month of November, pending
the arrival in the market of new sugar.
The beet sugar factories in the west
ern states are rapidly coming into
action and, together with the Ha
waiian production, will be able fn a
short time to take care of the sugar
supply in' the area west of the terri
tory referred to. '
As the production of beet and Ha
waiian sugar increases, the areas sup
plied from this source will gradually
extend eastward,. .and : beet sugar
should reach the Atlantic seaboard by
the end of November.
Depends, on Economies
'. The rapidity with which this sugar
Invasion from the West can take rlace
will be largely controlled by the econo
mies snown In the consumption of
sugar by the people In the western
area, and the Food Administration
makes a special appeal to them that
they should vigorously reduce the con
sumption of sugar, more especially of
candy and sweet drinks, in order that
the northeastern states may be sup
plied at the earliest possible moment.
Practically all of the cane sugar in
the hands of the refiners and the pro
ducers has now been distributed to
the jobbers and retailers at the prices
maintained during the last two months,
or upon a basis that should reach the
consumer in the f neighborhood of 9
cents per pound. !
therefore, if by virtue of the short
age in the western states the price of
sugar should increase, it is only proof
that it has been increasedat the hands
o! the handling trades not at the
hand of either the producer or the re
finer. The Food Administration asks
the public not to pay more for sugar
during the present shortage than it
has been paying during the last thirty
days. When the supply of beet sugar
reaches the Atlantic seaboard it
should be available upon a less basis
than the cane prices above mentioned.
Limit on Sales Urged
Furthermore, the Food Administra
tion requests that all jobbers in the
West as well as in the East, should
distribute their sugar with care among
the retailers in much reduced quanti'
ties and that the retailers, "In turn,
should refuse to sell but a very limited
quantity ; to any : one consumer. We
also trust that jobbers will refuse to
sell sugar to any retailer who advan
ces the price. .
A remedial contribution can be made
if the American people will at once
reduce their consumption of candy and
sweet drinks. Many householders of
the country have responded to the ap
peals for voluntary reduction, and un
less we can secure a wider and imme
diate reduction of the sugar, consump
tion in .candy, ice cream and sweet
drinks. It fwill be necessary next year
to curtail the supply to these indus
tries, as has been done all over
Europe.:: f: , y,:-::

WASHINGTON, D C, Oct. 20.
Blame for the present sugar shortage
north': Of Savannah anrt Mst nf Pitts.
burg is placed squarely W consumers !
and on manufacturers of candies and .
other sweets by the Food Administra-
tion. f ;' ' . V.. : ' . fy 4:: - 'I'
In a statement today the Food Ad
ministration said that had 'its recent
request for the curtailment of the" use
of sugar been heeded, present condi
tions would not exist, and It again
warned the people to economize until
hew. supplies are available.
The administration made this ex
planation of its efforts to relieve the
shortage: ' , ; : ' ; ;; . -f ... .
The Food .Administration some
days ago, directed all manufactur
ers and distributors of sugar to' cease
sales to confectioners, syrup and lux
ury manufacturers until , Cuban sup
plies are available.; ,
By this , means the sugar' con
sumption of the area of plentiful sugar.
south of Savagnah and west of Pitts
burg should be greatly reduced and
thus expedite yie arrival of beet sugar
into the sparse area. - '
The purchase of more sugar by"
households than is needed from week
to week only adds difficulties to the
distributing agencies of the country, s
which are cooperating loyally to mini
mize the period " and Intensity : of
shortage that exists in the Northeast
ern states. ' .' , .
Reports today show, that many re
tailers in many cities in this section .
are doing their best to effect- just)
distribution and hold prices, but are
having much difficulty with the hoard
ing consumer. M
The .0 beet sugar factories . in the
West, with the products eft Califor
nia, - Colorado, Utah, , Michigan ' and
other states, are rapidly coming Into
action and will be able soon to take
care of the sugar supply west of Pitts
burg, but the shortage is expected to
continue north of Savannah and east
of Pittsburg until December, when the
Louisiana, Mississippi and Cuban sup
plies' will become available. '
Beet sugar will be sent into the
East, but the extent to which it will
help will depend largely on economies
that the people in the West observe.
