'Che eooperatlon of all dealers In
the Slate of Orison with I ho rubs
'and regulations of tin I'nlled Slates
Food Administration has been moai
effective, hut there have been a few
dealers who, either from Ignorance
or selfishness, have iKUored or cvuil
il the requirements of the law. Ig
norance Of the law excuses no one
and in caw of future violations the
following rule will be vigorously en
forced. The greui majority of the people
of this State have loyally supported
the conservation efforts of the Food
Administration, hut there ban been
some hoarding by individuals. The
luw provides severe penalty for
hoarding. This applies to retailers
who aid or ubel them It Is not pro
posed to permit a few to nullify the
patriotic efforts of the many. In
order that there may be no mlsunder
standing regarding the rule by
either the dealer or the public, all
persons In this Slate must conform
to the follewing:
KUM'R: No dealer Is permitted
to have on hand more than a thirty
day's supply; no dealer can sell to
city or town consumers more than
one-fourth of u barrel at one time
and no consumer should have on
hand more than this ijuantlly. Iturul
consumers living at a distance from
their nearest anil natural trading
points may purchase not to exceed
one-half a barrel. Sales of larger
quantities to distant farmers, ranch
ers, etc., can be made only on a per
mit secured from the County Chair
man of Hie United States food Ad
ministration Dialer., in making
sales to hakerles. hotels, restaurants,
etc . must exercise due caution, not
to exceed the ren-otiiible require
ments of their customers.
These regulations are not made
on account of any present Khoriage
of flour, but In order that a shortage
nav not occur later, and thus prevent
