It it my purpose at this time to begin shipping about June 10th, how* ever, will be governed by mar kets. Every grower should begin to look for sacks. Good clean fer tilizer sacks may be used if they have been washed. No sack should be used that will hold in excess of 120 pounds when well filled. All potatoes must be graded according to Government rules. Any one desiring a copy can get them from me. Do not dig potatoes now and attempt to hold until a latei date for loading as they will sun burn and wilt, either of which will be sufficient grounds for rejections. It will be to the growers in terest to fully inform themselves as to grade requirements before digging and offering for ship ment. S. R.

The allied nations have made further increased demands on us for breadstuffs — demands that Americans are obligated to meet. In the meantime America’s meat supply has been greatly Increased for some months to come by the unprecedented shipping to murket of hogs that averaged 232 pounds each In stead of 203 pounds—the uor* mal. The United States Food Ad ministration, endeavoring to ad just the international food bal ance, promptly removed certain restrictions In this country on the use of meat and at the same time asked for a smaller con sumption of breadstuffs. We ure asked to observe only one meatless day each week— Tuesday. We will have larger meat stocks for awhile. Hut our bread ration must be held to a minimum. In altering its food conserva tion program the Food Admin* is.ration emphasizes that tlie food situation is of necessity, subject to radical changes, caused by crop conditions at home and abroad and by the precurious transportation prob lem, both In overseas shipping and In America's overburdened transportation system. The Food Administration will keep the American people fully and frankly advised of each change in the developing situa tion that they may know defi nitely the part their food sac •1 flees play In the world war.
