Military Necessity Calls for Greater Sacrifice Horc Allied War
Bread Must Be Maintained Our Soldiers and
Sailors to Have Full Allowance.
If wc nrc to furnish the Allies with the necessary propor
tion of wheat to maintain their war bread from now until the
noxt harvest, and tills is a military necessity, we must reduce
our monthly consumption to 21,000,000 bushelB a month, as
against our normal consumption of about 42,000,000 bushels,
or CO per cent, of our normal consumption. This is the situa
tion as act forth by the U. S. Food Administration at Washing
ton. Reserving a margin for distribution to the army and for
special cases, leaves for general consumption approximately
1V4 pounds of wheal products weekly per person. The Food
Administration's statement continues: Many of our consumers
urc dependent upon bakers' bread. Sucli bread must be durable
and therefore, requires a larger proportion of wheat products
than cereal breads baked in the household. Our army and
navy require a full allowance. The well-to-do in our population
can make greater sacrifices in the consumption of wheat
products than can the poor. In addition, our population in
the agricultural districts, whero the other cereals are abun
dant, are more skilled in the preparation of breads from these
other cereals than the crowded city and industrial populations.
With improved transportation conditions we now have avail
able a surplus of potatoes. We also have in the spring months
a fturplus of milk, ami wo have ample corn and oats for human
consumption. The drain on rye and barley, as substitutes, has
already greatly exhausted the supply of these grains.

Let's Get at the Facts!
No. 1 -Starting the Question
The most interesting nnd important subject in
Portland right now, aside from the war, is:
Next to that in importanco is the underlying
If they come back are you going to allow
to run wild?
Are you going to permit them to clutter into
hopeless congestion and confusion the crowded
downtown districts without compelling them to
establish any reliable or dependable service of
transportation in other parts of the city?
Many people are also asking the question: Why
should there be such an agitation for the return of
the jitneys just now?
You are also asking another important question
which bears directly upon the local transportation
situation and which explains why some of our op
ponents are so anxious to have the jitneys come
back. That question is:
Why does Portland have a G-cent fare when
other cities of approximate size do not have a
G-eent fare?
This is perhaps the most perplexing question ol
all to the average citizen, although it should not
if you understand the conditions and circumstan
ces which impelled tho Public Service Commission
to grant our company an increased fare.
At the same time a small group of opponents is
using the G-cent fare as an excuse for endeavoring
to bring the wild-cat jitneys back into operation
in Portland without regard to the .effect upon the
general transportation problem. They merely
want to do something to injure our company, and
the most ready weapon in their grasp seems to be
tho unregulated, irresponsible and go-as-you please
We feel that you are vitally interested in know
ing all the facts that have led upto the present
confused situation in the local transportation field.
And we hope we shall be able to dispel some of
this confusion and convince you that a G-cent fare
was necessary to enable this company to continue
furnishing service, and, furthermore, that the wild,
unregulated jitney will afford no relief whatever,
but will serve only to make it infinitely more diffi
cult for our company io maintain the quantity and
quality of streetcar service which careful students
declare is the equal of any streetcar service in the
United States, all things considered.
In this series of advertisements which begins to
day we shall discuss the 6-cent fare, the jitneys and
.various other problems that are inseparably invol
ved in the present transportation situation.
We shall do our best to clear away some of the
purpose created confusion with which our opponents
are seeking to camouflage the eutire subject.
Aud, in the name of fair play, we ask you to con
sider carefully the facts which we shall set forth.
