These new regulations carry Into

the food administration plans to carry
out, so far a »public eating places are
concerned, the announced plan that

the staples, rather than a series of
emergency regulations such as meat

Concerning theae twelve general
orders the food administration ln a
circular to the proprietors of public
eating places says: "It has not been
deemed advisable or necessary at the

United State« food administration
will not hesitate to secure compliance
with its orders throi^gn lta control of
the distribution of sugar, flour and
other food supplies. A failure to con

The new regulations affect hotels,!

sold to be consumed on the premises. '
In a message to the managers of auch
establishments the Food Administra
tor fully explains the food situation
with reference to the war, and tells
what the people of the United States
must <fo in the way of saving food In
order to make good the pledge
which, authorized by the President,
gave to the Allies at the recent j
conference of food controllers.
The Food Administration point«:
out that this accomplishment In 1919
will save a host of American lives
that, will have to be sacrificed If the
war continues until 1»20. To strike
the final blow ln 1919 means that we
must not find the men, shipping and
equipment for this gigantic army,j
but that our army, the Allied armlea
and the civil population of the
countries must, ln the meantime, have
ample food If their strength Is to be
maintained. "We can do all thew
