RESTRICT USE OF FLOUR United Stairs Food Administration Wanluiitfton, D. C. Mr. P. M. Harding, Federal Food Administrator, Vlcksburg, Mlsaissjppi If we are to furnish the allies with the necessa'ry proportion of wheat, to maintain their war bread from now until the next har vest, and this '.a a military naeaasity, we must reduce our monthly consumption to 21,0(JO,000 bushels a month, as against our normal consump tion of about 4,000,- O00 bushels or 50 per cent of our nor mal consumption, reserving a inargia for dlstribuliou to tho army 'and for special cases, leaving for General con aumpt'on, approximately one and one half pound of wheat products weekly per person. Many of our consumers are depend ent upon baker's bread, such , bread must 'be durable, and therefore, re quires a larger proportion of wheat products, than cereal breads baked in the households. . Our army and navy require a full allowance. Tlio well-to-do in our popu lation can make sroater sacrifices in the consumption of wheat products than can tho poor; in addition, our population in the agricultural ut tricts, where th,e other cereals are abundant, are more skilled in the preparation of breads from these other cereals, than rjie -crowded city and in dustrial populations. With improved transportation conditions we now have available a surplus of potatoes. V.'e also have in the spring months a sur plus of milk, and we have amnio corn and oats for human consumption. The drain on rye nd barley as sub stitutes has already greatly exhausied the supply of these grains to effect the needed saving of wheat. We are wholly dependent upon the voluntary assistance of the American ppople, and we aak that the following rules shall be observed: First IIovKoholilors to use not to exceed a tntni of one and 0113 half, pounds per week of wh.at produilii per person. . This means not moro tMn one arid three-quarter pounds of "Victory Bread," containing the required per centage of substitutes, and about a half pound of cooking flour, macaroni, crackers, pastry, pies, cakes, wheat breakfast cereals all combined Second Public eating places and clubs to observe two whsntless days per week, Monday and Wednesday, as at present. In addition thereto not to serve-in the aggregate a total of more hreadstuffs, macaroni, crackers, pas ' try, pies, cakes, wheat breakfast ce Teals, containing a total of mpre than two ounces of wheat flour toi any one guest at any one meal. No wheat products to be served unless specially ordered. Public eating establishments not to buy more than six 'pounds of wheat products per month, per guest, thus conforming with limitations rsquested of the hcusehoklor. Third Retailers to sell not more , than ono-eighth barrel of flour to any torn "i.i.-to.:rv r.t any one time, and not more than one-fourth barrel to any country customer at any one time, and in no case sell wheat products without the sale of an equal weight of other cereals. Fourth We ask tho bakers and gro cers to reduce the volume of "Victory Bread" sold by delivery of the three fourths pound loaf when on? pound was sold before the corresponding pro portions in other weights. We also ask bakers not to increase the amount of their wheat flour purchaser beyond 70 per cent of the average month'y amount purchased In the four months prior to March 1st. Fifth Manufacturers using wheat products for non-fond purposes should cease such use entirely. Sixth There is no limit upon the use of other cereal flour and meals, corn, barley, buckwheat, potato flour. Many thousand families throughout the 1arrl nrc rmr tm'ntr 10 wh"-t "rod nets wv.ale .; txcftj-H a very sma'l amount to" mold:: 3 p'rpos. pr ".re doing co in perfect health arul satis faction. There 'a no reason why all . of the American p?on!e win are aVe A I Vn'a Atn 1, Anonhnllu nun not subsist perfectly, well with the use of les3 wheat products than one and one-half pounds a week, and we , especially ask the well-to-do hou:t ' holds in th country to follow this ad ditional program "n order that we may provWe the necessary marginal sup plies for these parts of the country less able to adapt themselves to so large a proportion of substitutes, in order that we shall be able to make the wheat exports that are asolutely demanded of us to maintain the civil population and soldiers of the allies and our own army. W propose to supplement the vol untary co-operation of the public by a further limitation of distribution and we shall place at once restrictions on distribution which will be adjusted from time to time to secure as nearly equitable distribution as possible. With the arrival of harvest we should be able to relax such restrictions. Un til thec, we ask for the necessary pa tience, sacrifice and co-operation of the distributing trades.
