WHEAT RATION CUTJNE-HALF Americans Are Asked To Do On Pound and Half Per Person Each Week, i TO REDUCE FLOURSALES One-Eighth Barrel For City and One. Quarter For Country Customers Are DecreasedNew Food Rules. Washington, March 26.That the scant supplies available before the next harvest may be stretched to meet the demands of the army, domestic, consumers and the allies the food adminstration has asked a further reduction in the consump tion of wheat. Every American is requested to cut his average ration of wheat by 50 per cent, which would reduce the total normal consumption of 42, 000,000 bushels a month to 21,000,000. This gives a ration of not more than iyz pounds of wheat products weekly for each person. Fiour sales will be cut to one-eighth of a barrel for a town customer and one-quarter for any country customer, that re tailers' stocks may be illustrated to as great a number as possible. Statement Is Issued. The Food administartion's state ment says: "If we, are to furnish the Allies with the necessary proportion of wheat to maintain their war bread from now until the next harvest, and this is a military necessity, we must reduce our monthly consumption to about 21,000,000 bushels a month as against our normal consumption of about 42,000,000 bushels, or 50 per Cent our normal consumption. Re serving a margin for distribution to the army and for special cases, leaves for general consumption ap proximately one and one-half pounds of wheat products weekly per per son. Many of our consumers are depen dent upon bakers' bread. Such bread must be durable and therefore re quires a larger proportion of- wheat products then cereal breads baked in the, household. Potatoes Are Abundant. 'With improved transportation con ditions we now have available a sur plus of potatoes We have in the spring months a surplus of milk and we have ample corn and oats for human consumption. The, drain on rye and barley as substitutes has al ready exhausted the supply of these (grains. "To effect the needed saving of wheat we are wholly dependent up on the voluntary assistance of the American people and we ask that the following rules shall be observed: Householders to use, not to exceed a total of 1V2 pounds per week of 'wheat products per person. This means not more than 1% pounds of Victory bread containing the requir ed percentage of substitutes and one half pound of cooking flour, Macaroni, crackers, pastry, pies, cakes wheat breakfast cereals, all combined. Wheatless Day. Continue "Public eating places and clubs to observe two wheatless days per week, Monday and Wednesday, as at pres ent. In addition thereto, not to serve to any one guest at any one meal an aggregate of breadstuff's, macaroni, crackers, pastry, pies, cakes, or wheat breakfast cereals containing a total of more than two ounces of wheat flour. No wheat products to be served unless specially ordered. Public eat ing establishments not to buy more than six pounds of wheat products for each 90 meals served, thus con forming with the limitations request ed of the, householders. "Retailers to sell not more than one-eighth of a barrel of flour to any town customers at any one time and not more than one-quarter of a barrel to any country customer at any one time and in no case to sell wheat products without the sale of an equal weight of other cereals. Victory Bread Affected. "We ask the baiters and grocers to reduce the volume of Victory bread sold, by delivery of the three quarter pound loaf where one pound was sold before and corresponding proportions in other weights. We also ask bakers not to increase the amount of their wheat fiour pur chases beyond 70 per cent of the average monthly amount purchased in the four months prior to March first. "Manufacturers using wheat prod ucts for non-food purposes should 2ease such use entirely. There is ao limit on the use of other cereals, Sours and meats, corn, barley, buck wheat, potato flour, etc. Raiders Fail to Reach Ptriz.

Corn Meal Biscuits cop scalded milk 1 cap corn meal 2 tablespoons shortening j^^^^^^gBgg ToThe American People There is no foundation for the alieged violations of law attributed to our Com pany by agents of the Federal Trade Commission and I want to say emphatic ally that Swift & Company is not a party to any conspiracy to defraud, the Govern ment. Nor has Swift & Company been guilty of improperly storing foods or of making false entries or reports. Conferences of packers, where prices have been discussed, have been held at the urgent request and in the presence of representatives of either the Food Administration or the Council of National Defense. And yet the packers have been accused of committing a felony by acting in collusion on Government bids! We have done our best, with ether packers, large and small, to comply with the directions of the United States Food Administration in all particulars, including the furnishing of food supplies for the U. S. Army and Navy and the Allies, now be ing handled through the Food Adminis tration. We will continue to do our utmoat,un der Government direction, to increase our production and assist the Food Adminis tration. W consider that the opportunity to co-operate whole-heartedly and to our fullest powers with this branch of the Government is our plain and most press ing duty. The Trade Commission Attorney has, by false inference and misplaced empha sis, given to disconnected portions of the correspondence taken from our private files and read into the Record, a false and sinister meaning with the plain purpose of creating antagonistic public opinion. The services of the packers of the United States are most urgently needed, and I regret exceedingly that we should at this time have to spend our efforts in defending ourselves against unfounded, unproved, and unfair assertions such as are being daily made public.
