SALESMEN GIVE HELP TO HOOVER Travelers Will Spread Gospel of Food Conservation. TO SAVE MEN, FOOD AND FUEL Will Push Sale of Foodstuffs That Can Be Used as Wholesome Substi tutes for Wheat and Other Commod. ities of Which There Is Shortage Urge Corn as Food. The distribution division of the United States food administration has perfected plans by which the sales men of the country, particularly those employed by wholesale distributors of food products, shall be organiled for the purpose of spreading the various conservation measures advocated by the food administration. There are at least 40,000 of these salesmen, and in the course of a month they visit hun dreds of thousands of retail mer chants. Each salesman will be asked to join the food administration, and to pledge himself to urge upon the re tailers, and through them, upon the consumers, various measures to save men, food, fuel, energy and materials for war uses. How They Will Help. They will push the sales of those foodstuffs that can be used as whole some substitutes for wheat and other commodities of which there is a short age. They will show the retailers how to make attractive displays of cornmeal, potatoes, beans, and other products of which there may be a suffl clent supply or a surplus. They will bring home to retailers the imperative necessity of eliminating all extra delivery service, thus saving men for the army and navy. The credit evil, particularly the long credits given by retail grocers to their customers, will also be attacked in this way. The waste and loss from this evil can hardly be overestimated. The salesmen will be pledged as mem bers of the food administration to use their influence in getting retail gro cers to shorten their credits, and the wholesale grocers will also be asked to adopt a similar policy. Push Use of Cornmeal. All indications are for an enormous corn crop. American consumers, par ticularly those in the north, have never learned the value and the possibilities of cornmeal as a food. The organized salesmen will make every effort to in crease the use of cornmeal, and to hasve it sold( in la .i1i r q a'lntities by all wholesalers and reitilers.
