The rules of the food administra

feed purposes have been repealed
effective now, according to a tele
grata received Sunday by Charles
Hebberd, federal food administrator
for the state, from Herbert Hoover.
This makes possible the return of
pre-war feeding conditions, but the
food administration expresses the
hope that while thlg privilege has
been extended it will not be taken
advantage of and that farmers will
continue to make use of a balanced
ration, all those using wheat mix

The telegram reads: "In view of
the, fact that thp price of other
grains is now much modified, there
seems to be no occasion for (main

wheat for feeding purposes as it
would only go into use in localities
where economic conditions are dis
turbed and for feeding chickens. It
is our uniform desire wherever the
economic conditions warrants relax
tion i n the rules to do it as quickly
as possible. Rules 2 A3 and 25 B6,
limiting sales of wheat for feed, are
both repealed November 4."
Rule 2 AB reads: "The wheat mil
