Orders Received Front Washington
Discontinuing' Canning Allotment.
No more permits for sugar to be used
for canning purposes will be issued by
the local food administration this sea
We have received orders from
Washington to discontinue issuing
these permits at once," said Assistant
Federal Food Administrator W. K.
Newell last night, "and no more per
mits will be given out from this office.
It will be useless for anyone to apply
for additional sugar for canning pur
poses this season.
"Oregon has been a great deal more
generous in allotting sugar for can
ning than have many other states, and
from reports made at the food admin
istration, the average Oregon household
is splendidly stocked with fruits and
vegetables canned by patriotic housewives.
"All fruits are now scarce and higher
in price, so the food administration
feels no hardship will be worked by
discontinuing sugar permits."
