FOOD ADMINISTR'N Raleigh, Dec. 21 In line with the 1 )licy it has pursued since the sign ing of the armistice, the Food Ad ministration is consistently, and as rapidly as possible removing defi nite rules and regulations affecting the handling and consumption of food stuffs. State Food Adminis trator Henry A. Page today an nounced that practically all rules iiid regulations affecting the wheat Mid corn milling industry have l een rescinded effective immediate- t RSIle yam 1 1 romoiM urtrlai. !!nanoo : id be subject to some degree of iiitrol, but the regulations fixing a J:ir price schedule on feeds, the jn rcentage of extraction, etc. are removed. EffectiveMonday, December 23rd, definite regulations governiug j- sblic eating places are rescinded. te State Food Administrator has ritten to the 2000 public eating I :uces in North Carolina advising ! . 9. m of the removal of these restric ts jas, but pointing out that there is ecn greater need for food conser- uion now than there would have li':en at this timehad the war con tinued. The definite restrictions u:o removed because there is no h. iger any war necessity for them, 'i lie motive for conservation from i w on is humanitarian, and, there fire, the matter, of conservation Must be left to the conscience of the consumers. On account of the removal of a large number of rules and regula tions, and a consequent decrease in ti.e volume of work handled by the Food Administration, effective Jan 1 the organization of the Food Ad ministration will be very materially reduced. Already the sugar divis ion has abandoned the field. After Cuis month the office staff which, with clerical and stenographic help numbered approximately 35 during tiie summer and fall, will be consti tuted as follows: John Paul Lucas, Fxecutive Secretary, Jos.

Uricl&ssi&ocl CSMBZl. 1918. MB A food map of Europe today shows not a single country In which the fu ture does not hold threat of serious difficulties and only t small part which is not rapidly approaching th famine point. With the exception of the Ukraine only those countries which have maintained marine commerce, have sufficient food supplies t meet' actual needs until next harvest, and even In the Ukraine, with stores accu mulated on the farms, there Is famine In the large centers of population. ;;" r Belgium and " northern 1 Prance, as well as Serbia, appear on the hunger map distinct 'from the rest of Europe because they stand in a different rela tion from the oilier nations to the peo ple df the United States. America has for four years maintained the small war rations of 3elgium and northern France and is already raakinsr soecial efforts to care for their Increased after-the-war needs, which, with those of Serbia, must be Included In this plan, are urgent' in the extreme and must have immediate relief. The gratitude of- the Belgian nation for the help America has extended to ner aurlng the war' constitutes the strongest appeal for us to continue our work there. The moment the German I armies withdrew from her soil1 and she waii established once more in her own seat of government the little nation's first thought was to express her grati tude to the Commission for Relief in Belgium for preserving the liyes of millions of her citizens. Germany, on the other hand, need not figure in such a map for Ameri- I cans because there is no present indi-1 cation that we shall be called on at all to take thought for the food neecls of Germany. Germany probably can care for. her ownfoodeoiem jiveu ntxesa iu snipping ana is enauieti to distribute food to the cities with dense populations, which are the trou ble centers. .?;v England, Fraipthe Netherlands and Portugalrof which have been maintained from ' American supplies, have sufficient food to meet immediate needs, but their future presents seri ous difficulties. The same is true of Spain and the northern neutral coun tries Norway, - Sweden and Denmark whose ports have been open and who have been able to draw to some degree upon foreign supplies. Most of Russia is already in the throes of famine, and 40,000,000 people there are beyond the possibility of help. Eefore another spring thou sands of them Inevitably must die. This applies as well to Poland and practically throughout the Baltic re W. B. Stiles V. V. Hooper J. J. Mason ' John Brown G.T. Wike , 44 M . . . J. E.
