Households, Eating Houses and
Bakers Must Decrease
Use of Wheat.
Urgent military necessities of the
United 8ttee and the AMU ha
feread a mora draatlo reetrlctlon In
the wheat conaervatlon program.
Coupled with an aarneat appeal to all
Individuate, houaeholda, public eating
placaa and baker of bread and pas
trlea for their co-operation and eup
port, Herbert C. Hoover haa lued a
new eet of rule designed to further
reduce wheat consumption In thl
country until the next hnrveat.
These rule and Mr. Hoover' per
aonal appeal are given out through :
Mr. W. B. Ayer, Federal Food Admin
latrator for Oregon, In the following j
"If we aro to furnish the Allies with
the tieopsmiry proportion Of wheat to '
maintain their war bread from now i
until the next harvest (and this is a
military necessity) we, must reduce)
our monthly consumption to twenty
one million bushels a month against
our normal consumption of about
forty-two million bushel or fifty per
cent of our normal consumption, re
serving a margin for distribution to
the army and for special casus, leav
ing for general consumption approzl
mately one and one-half pound of
wheat products weekly per person.
Many of our consumers are dependent
upon baker's bread. Such bread must
be durable and therefore require a
larger proportion of wheat products
than cereal breads baked In tin' home
"The well-to-do in our population
can make greater MertftCM In the
consumption of wheat products than
can the poor In addition our DOpn
latum in the agricultural districts,
where the substitute cerea's are abun
daut. arc more skilled in the prepara
tion of breads from these other cereals
than the crowded city and industrial
populations Willi Improved transpor
tatlOO condition! STO now have avail
able n lurplttl of potatoes. We also
have in the sprint; months a surplus
of milk and we have ample corn and
oats for human consumption The
drain on rye and barley as substitutes
has already greatly exhausted the sup
ply of these grains,
"To effect the needed saving of
wheat we are wholly dependent upon
the voluntary assistance of the Amer
ican people and we ask that the fol
lowing rules shall he ebserved:
First Householders to use not to
exceed a total of one and one half
pounds per week of wheat products
per person. This means not more
than one and three fourths pounds of
victory bread containing the required
percentage of substitutes and about
one-half pound of OOOUBfl (lour, mac
aroni, crackers, pastry, pics, cakes,
wheat breakfast c Teals all combined.
Second- I'uhlic eating places and
clubs to observe two wheatless days
per week. MMtdaVJ and Wednesday, as
at present, and in addition thereto not
to serve in the abrogate a total of
more breadstuff, ni icnronl, crackers.
. . iry p,.s cakes. i iH wheal break
fast cereal containing a total of more
than two ounces oi wheat flour to any
one guest at any one meal. NO
Public eating estab. (aliments not to
liny more than Hlx pounds of wheat
product per month per guest, thus
conforming with limitations requested
, f the boo leholders.
Third Retailors to sen not more
than Oa-eightb or I barrel of fluur
i .i.y town consumer l any one tim
and noi more than one-quarter of u
l a- rel to any COO itry customer at
any one time an 1 .11 no ease to sell
Ale at products without the nil of an
ip.ul weight of other cereal.
Fourth We ask the baker anil
grocers tO ro'luee the volllflM of ur
oiv broad sold Uj delivery of a'
tlir equal I n p'flin.l loaf where DOS
; , ind was sold before and correspoml
ing proportions In other welftttn. We
nlsft ask bakers net to Increase tin
amount or their wheat flour pur
(bases beyond MvOat per cent of the
average monthly amount purchased In
the four months prior to March first.
Fifth Manufactuiars using wheat I
products for non food imrposes should
aaac sui h use hrelj
Sixth There is no limit upon the
use of OtllOl unreal flours and meals,
such as corn, barley, buckwheat, po
tato flour, el cetera. Many thousands
Of families throughout the land are
now using no wheal products what
ever except a very small amount for
Hooking purposes, and are doing so
in perfect health and satisfaction
There Is no reason why all of the
American people who are able to cook
in their OWI household cannot sub
slat perfectly well with the use of less
wheat prodUOtl than the one and one
half pound:, a week allowed. We spe
dally ask the well-todo households
In tho country to follow this additional
programme so that we may provide
tho necessary marginal supplies for
those parts of the community less able
to adapt themselves to so large a pro
portion of substitutes and In order
that we shall be able to make the
wheat export that are absolutely dc
mantled of us to maintain the civil
population and soldier of thu Allies
and our own army.
"With the arrival of the new harvest
we should he able to relax such re
strictloiiH, but until then we ask for
tho necessary patience, escrlflce, and
co-operation of tho distribution trades
aud public."

"We have the preservation of the
world on our handa. Every aiugle
living human being in thl republic,
from ocean to ocean, should make It
hi or her special purpose to save
The ore the word of B. F. Cullen,
personal representative of Herbert C.
Hoover, In a recent address.
"Men will resist any power hut the
power of starvation," aald Mr. Cullen.
"Hunger In the final analysis. Is the
only force that can weaken a nation
and demoralize an army. Food Is
Strength, and without a perpetual sup
ply of strength, the world ran stand
In danger of tottering, weakening and
falling into utter chaos. A man can
not think, work or fight If he is hun
gry. "The allies today ure practically
wholly dependent upon the United
States for food. Upon this nation
rests the responsibility of preserving
the world from I'russlanlsm. This is
the task of tho people of this nation
to produce and save food enough to
keep a steady stream of essential sup
plies moving towards the front so
long as it shall be necessary to wage
this war. If at any time we fail In
this, we must Inevitably go down, with
the allies, to defeat. This Is no ex
aggeration, but a serious fact. It Is
the purpose of the United States Food
Administration to brlug the realisa
tion of this fact home to every Ameri
can man, woman and child, and to en
list the Individual aid of our hundred
million people in producing and sav
ing food. The Food Administration
Is not asking you to cat less; It only
urges that you substitute one nutrl
timis food for another equally nutrl
tious food, thus saving the vital sta
pies needed by our armies and the '
armies and peoples, of the allies. We
must, during the next three months, j
are wheat especially. Our surplus
hits already been shipped abroad, and
a hundred million bushels more are
needed. When you eat a slice of bread
less, omit the crackers with your soup,
or Otherwise conserve on wheal prod
nets, yoii are contributing towards the
hundred million bushels needed owr

potatoes have bee l In this country
