This is the Victory bread. All bakers who willfully refuse to do this will be com pelled to close their places of busi ness. The success of the rule laid down for making Victory bread will be threatened if some bakers bake said bread while others bake white bread g VAltglfSSpg -puzzle-find the slaci^fh community. miners wno cannot procure substitutes will be re quired to fiie 8Worn statement, and upon agreement to cut down their bread volmne gp per cent of normal, may be piven permit to operate until es are procurable, but not W ton days. Potatoes may s*ijiilly used up to half sub ^-I'rements in combination ubstitutes, but when so unds of potatoes equal substitutes as per ban section of the food ad j ministration has just wired the offic , of the federal food admintstratio j for Alaska that baking rules have bee ; amended to provide tor the baking c ' a three-quarter-pound loaf. Variation ! of three-quarters of an ounce over an three-quarters of an ounce under thi | weight are permitted in individua loaves, but the average weight of nc less than twenty-five loaves shall b -not less than the prescribed weighi The new loaf may be baked singly o 1 in twin form two in a pan and it manufacture is subject to the sam rules as all other bread. The net weight simply adds an additional loa size; it is not intended to displace th one-pound unit and was adopted as ; wheat-saving measure on the showim that in some large cities there ar many families which require less thai one pound of bread per day. Its prim should be relatively lower than that o the pound loaf. ougctr rur udfirimy cinu rrcscrvmg Sugar supplies for manufacturers o essentials food products (the necessit; of both production and preservatioi of food supplies and as reflecting th< policy of the food administration a: bearing upon collateral Industrie: such as manufacturers of cans an< fruit jars and buyers of same) may b< obtained. All manufacturers of es sential food products will be able t( obtain their full necessary require ments of sugar for manufacturing pur poses during the coming season. This applies particularly to packers of fruit r ■ ■— - 31 condensed milk and such vegetables i tor preservation of which sugar may ;i be necessary, as well as to the house f wives for usage in preserving pur s Poses. When car shortage is relieved 3 supplies of sugar will be available for s necessary preservation purposes. Ship 1 ments from Cuba are steadily increas t ing. 3 Special Rule as to Canned Goods The food administration advises r | that a special rule (No. 1) governing * licensees engaged in business of can 3 ned food products is now in force, r amending existing rule, to the effect f that the licensees shall not for fuure 31 packing or delivery sell any canned 31 peas, canned corn, canned tomatoes, ; j canned salmon or canned sardines not > manufactured and on hand unless the i price to be fixed in the contracts is » subject to revision by the United f States food administration if it is un reasonable. This rule does not apply to army and navy requirements. Victory Bread on Wheatless Days. Victory bread may be sold and used on the two wheatless days. Victory crackers, pies, cakes, pastry and fried cakes containing not less than one third substitutes, bearing the name of “Victory” may be sold or used on wheatless days. Potatoes as Substitutes Until flour substitutes are more abundant, four pounds of potatoes may be sold to take the place of one pound of flour substitutes. -♦ .
