(By Territorial Food Adminrstrator)
The food administration has called
attention by telegraph to the ruling
that all bakers must use 20 per cent
of substitutes in their bread. 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

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

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.

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

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.
