TTTR WASHINGTON TIMES: WEDNESDAY.' SEPTEMBER 26: 1917.
f FEW-COURSE LUNCHEONS WASTE, NOI SAVE, FOOD Bjr HILL TRICE. Society women of Washington and Other parts of the country who have inaugurated the plan of giving two course luncheons and three-course cllnners, believing this will conserve the food supplies of the country, are doing directly the opposite, according (o food administration officials today. The. good purpose and patriotism of society leaders Is appreciated by the food establishment of the Govern ment, which dlslkes to Issue bulletins telling people what they should or Should POt do in their homes, except la a general way, but nothing could be further from the wishes of the food experts than to see people resort to tvo and three-course meals. In a two-course luncheon. It was pointed out today, one dish will In evitably be meat and In a three-course dinner there will likewise be meat. In the short-course meals bread Is also a. necessity, The inevitable result la that the proportion of bread and meat consumed will be far above that of a longer course meal In which perishables vegetables and fruits play a prominent part. Eat Wlffcoat Waste. There Tis never been a desire on 4fca Birt of the food administration X to hare meals limited to a few courses, and how socisty people got the Impression that they were helping conserve the. food supply by doing this Government experts do not know. The motto of the food authorities is to eat plentifully and wisely, but Without waste, doing everything pos sible to conserve meats, breads and fata, "To restrict the courses at lunch eons and dinners means beyond ques tion." said an official 'today, "that the consumption of meats and breads Will be far greater than ir the num ber of dishes served Is much larger and Includes the perishable articles that can be obtained so easily and cheaply." Sure Bread Is Coming Down. The prediction was made today that the price of bread in Washing ton and elsewhere will soon be re duced, officials pointing to the action of master bakers is Kew Tork yes- terday In agreeing to Bene a rour-teen-ounce loaf that will be sold for 8 cents. This organisation represents what are known as the "little bakers," the big bakers having -another organisa tion. The little bakers, it was as serted, have shown a willingness to aid the food administration Is reduc ing prices, although thousands of them still have on hand supplies of Sour bought at prices much higher than now prevail. At 8 cents for a fourteea-ounee loaf, made from sup plies purchased some months ago. tne bakers will barely -Bet out without loss, although It Is declared they will be able to make fair profits for that gdze and price loaf when they begin to purchase flour at prevailing prices. It was the hope of Mr. Hoover's as sociates today that Washington bak ers will begin reducing the prices of bread here before the food admlnlsl trator for the District Is named, as that official will unquestionably grasp A Sensitive Society Subject Toflct and liyxtenlc claanltnsa la a sabject ef mscb Jntarest to tha acleatlflc. aodal and Ultr world.

Treasury experts today com puted that the United States Gov ernment -Is now spending about 11,500,000,000 a month, 150,000,000 a day, or more than $2,000,000 an hour. America has loaned to the al lies $2,426,400,000 at the rate of about I13.-460.OO0 a day. the bread situation In the District among the first problems before him. Capital to Be Example. Owing to Insinuations that Wash ington, the center of the Govern ment's food efforts. Is likewise the center of high prices generally for necessaries of lite, the food adminis trator named for the District will re ceive Instructions from Mr. Hoover personally to undertake to Inaugurate reforms here that win set Washing ton up as a place In which real things have been accomplished. If food au thorities know what ther are talking about, better times are ahead for the consumers ot this city. food specialists today took cogni zance. In an Informal way, of pub lished statements In all directions that bread and flour In England sell far below the prices In this country, although the English must pay high transportation charges across the sea for their supplies. It was pointed out that the English government has been buying all the wheat and selling flour to the bakers at a serious loss. Only recently, It was stated, the Eng lish government appropriated 140, 000,000 to pay the difference between what the wheat costs It and the prices at which It 'sold flour to bakers and the people. The same plan Is followed in France. It Is stated. It would be manifestly Impossible, without a sub sidy from the government, for flour to be sold In England cheaDer than here. It Was said today, for the reason that the English government pss for American wheat the exact price Americans here pay for it. Jordan's Piano Sale!

Warerooms -6tfisDfa& egSejsjmagS gsJ METALS PRICE BILL LIKELY TO GO OVER Tl LLNEXTSES ION Despite the Administration's fixing steel prices Congress Is likely to en act legislation which will give the Government broad powers In respect to prices of both Iron and steel, and may Include copper and various other basic metals and products. The Senate Interstate Commerce Committee tomorrow will give Its last hearing on the Fomerene bill provid ing for fixing of prices on Iron and steel. Then It will take up the bill, strengthen it, and report it. Mar G Over te Jfext Session. While the bill may not pass this ses sion. It Is expected to pass early In Ihe winter. Senators who are for the bill say It could pass this session if the President would get behind It. One reason why the steel Interests have assented to the fixing ot prices by the Government has been that they hope to avoid legislation. That the prices which the Government has fixed are extremely liberal for the steel Interests Is shown In the fact thet steel stocks have risen since the prices were announced. Agreement But Temporary. Senators who are for legislation point out that the agreement between the steel concerns and the Govern ment Is but temporary, and could be upset any time because not all the steel and iron Interests have gone into it. Furthermore, they believe the Gov ernment should be clothed with broad price-fixing powers just as In the case of coal. LAW COMMITTEE TO MEET.
