I'e^ai'ding Sugar for Canning and
ifcowa house wives will be able to
get all the sugar they actually need
for canning and preserving purposes.
They will be asked to sign a cer
tificate as to amount they require
and will solemnly pledge themselves
to return whatever part of the sup
ply they do not use for canning and
preserving. Food administrator
Oeems has been authorized .by the
Federal Food Administration at
Washington to issue blank certifi
cates to retail grocers who will re
quire the signatures of purchasers,
the administration will maintain the
present limit of sugar purchased for
general purposes Ave pounds for con
sumers in the cities and ten pounds
for consumers in the country but
the certificates will enable those de
siring additional sugar for canning
and preserving to secure it upon
agreement that they will return-such
parts of purchases so made as are
not used for the purposes for
which they bought it. Washington
has advised administrator Deems
that "we must have strict economy
and if necessary even slight short
ages now rather than have any
shortage whatsoever when the can
ning season is at hand." Retail
dealers therefore are instructed to
maintain the prescribed limits on
sale of sugar to the five and ten
nound limit except when the certi
ficates are signed fer the use of
sugar for canning exclusively.
