OF COVINGTON Meeting Called By Commis sioners Haller and Mackie. SALE OF SUGAR MAIN DISCUSSION Decided the Issuing of Tick ets the Best Solution of Problem. Tuesday, Food Commissioner H. A. Mackie, for the town of Covington, called a meeting of the retail dealers to discuss the control of the sale of sugar, but the meeting was not satis factory, as a full attendance was de sired. Thursday evening another meeting was called. The tourteen retailers of Covington ere request ed to attend, and there were but sev eral absent. One of the gravest problems of the food commission is the equal distri bution of the limited supply of sugar to the consumers of America. if it Were not for the commission specu lators and profiteers would so control the supply that only the wealthy would be able to get sugar. The very people 'who are -benefited by this regulation to the greatest extent are the most difficult to control, because they see sugar in small quantities in the household and do not realize the great aggregate of the small amounts. State Commissioner 'Parker hap re quested that the subject re:elve the close attention of commissioners all over the State. The meeting was for the purpose of so regulating the sale of sugar that no family, boarding house or public eating house may obtain more than, a fair share of sugar. After a thorough discussion of thg matter, it was decided that the best method to adopt was the issuing of allotment cards or tickets, no sale to be made without the presentment of a ticket. Each person is entitled to two pounds of sugar ever tflrty days, and not more than two pounds can be sold to any family or board ing house at one time, in the town. In the country, five pounds may be obtained at one time.' Sugar for canning purposes must be obtained by affidavit as to the amount to be used, and an allotment ticket must be secured. All of these tickets may be secured from Parish Commission er Haller or Town Commissioner Mackie on appli.ction. Later an agent will bdappointed to issue these tickets. Violation of this ruling may be followed by taking away the rights of the defaulter to secure tickets. ish of St. Tammany, to the amount of One Hundred and Fifty Thousand ($150,000) Dollars, and to.issue and sell negotiable semi-annual interest bearing coupon bonds evidencing the said indebtedness (the amount of the said indebtedness being less than ten per cent of the assessed valuation of the property in said Road District); said bonds to bear interest at the rate of five per cent per annum, pay able semi-annually, the interest and principal of said bonds to be payable in such amounts and at such places as the governing authority may de termine, in twenty-seven (27) years from the date of the bonds, and in a less time if the governing authori ty in its discretion deems it to the best interest of the Road District; and both the principal and interest of said bonds to be secured by a suf ficient tax to be levied and collected each year in accordance with Article 281 of the Constitution of and the laws of the State of Louisiana, the proceeds from the sale of the said bonds at not less than par to be used in constructing, improving and main taining the public, roads and high ways within Road Distrcit *No. One of the Parish of St. Tammany, La.
