20 to 4 5 bushels to the acre of $2 wheat its
easy to figure the profits. Many Western Canadian
farmers (scores of them from the U. S.) have paid for their land from a
single crop. Such an opportunity for 100% profit on labor and investment
is worth investigation.

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
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
"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

Pari3, March 25.A group of enemy
lirplanes have crossed the lines and

to turn back by the fire of French

tended to raid Paris itself, but one
enemy machine succeeded in reaching
the capital.

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
We will continue to do our utmoat,un

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

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.
