I si rater far Orsitn, In tha fallowing
"If We are ta furntah the Allies with ,
, the necessary proportion of wheat to.
maintain their war bread from new'1
I until the next harvest (and thla la a 1
military necessity) we mint rudijca
our monthly consumption to twenty
one million buaheli a month ns against
- our normal consumption of about
2. forty-two million bushols or fifty por
cent of our normal .consumption, ream-ring
a margin for distribution to,
i the army and for special cases, Icav
" Ins for ceoeral consumption nnnroxl-
saataly one and one-halt pounds of ,
wheat products weekly per person.
Many of our conaumera are dependent
upon baker's bread. Such bread must '
f b durable and therefore requires a j
larger proportion of wheat producta ,
'' than cereal breads baked In the homo,
"Tha well-to-do In our population
can make greater sacrifices In tha
consumption of wheat products than"
I can tha poor. In addition aur popu
f latlon la the agricultural districts,
where tha aubstltute cereals are abun
v' dant, are mora skilled in tha prepare
tlon of breads from these other cereals
than the crowded city and Industrial
populattona. With Improved transpor.
tatloa coadltloaa wa now hare avail
able a surplus of potatoes. We also
bave In the spring months a aurplus
of milk and we have ample corn and
oats for human consumption. The
drain on rye and barley aa substitutes
has already greatly eibausted the sup
ply of these gralna.
"To effect the needed saying of
wheat we are wholly dependent upon
the voluntary assistance of the Amer
ican people and we ask that the fol
lowing rules shall be observed:
First Householders to use not to
, exceed a total of one and one-half
pounda per week of wheat producta
per person. This means not more
than one and three-fourths pounda of
victory bread containing the required
percentage of substitutes and about
one-half pound of cooking flour, mac
aroni, crackers, pastry, pics, cakes,
wheat breakfast cereala all combined.
Second Public eating places and
clubs to observe two whcatless days
per week, Monday and Wednesday, as
' at present, and In nddltlon thereto not
to serve In the aggregate a total of
moro breadstuffs, macaroni,-crackers,
pastry, pies, cakes, and wheat break
fast cereals containing a total of more
than two ounces pt wheat flour to any
' one guest at any ono meal. NO
WHEAT PRODUCTS TO BE SERV
Kl) UNIjE88 SPECIALLY ORDERED.
Public eating establishments not to
buy more than six pounds of wheat
' produots par month per guest, thus
conforming with limitations requested
of the householders,
Third Retailers to sell not more
than one-eighth of a barrel of flour
to any town consumer at any one time
and sot more than one-quarter of, a
barrel to any country customer at
any one time and a no case to sell
wheat producta without the sals of an
equal weight of other cereala.
(. , Fourth Wa ask the bakers land
grocers to reduce the volume of 'vic
tory bread aold by delivery of a
three-quarters poun,d, Joaf whe,re -one
,' pound was 'sold bet6N and correspond'
lug proportions in other weights. We
.also ask bakers not to Increase the
amount of ther wheat flour pur
chases beyond sevonty por cent of the
average monthly amount purchased In
the four months prior to March first
Fifth Manufacturers using wheat
products for non-rood purposes should
cease, such use entirely.
Sixth There Is no limit upon the
use -of other cereal flours and meals,
such as corn, barloy, buokwheat, po
tato flour, et cetera. Many thousands
of famlles. throughout the land are
now using no wheat producta what
ever except a very small amount for
cooking purposes, and are doing so
in perfeot health and satisfaction..
There la no reason why all of the
American people who aro dble to cook
16 their own households cannot sub-
.slst perfectly well with the use of less
Wheat products than the ono and one
half, pounds a weok allowed. We ope-
dally ask the well-to-do households
In tho country to follow this additional
programme so that wo may provide
the necessary marginal supplies for
those parts of the community less able
to adapt themselves to so largo a pro
portion "pf substitutes and. In order
that we shall be able to make the
v whoat exports that aro abnolutoly de-
manded of us to mdlnfaln the qlvll
population and .soldiers of the Allies
,nnd our own army. " .
' "With tho arrival of tho new harvest
wo should be ablqjo rolox such re-,
atrlctlons, but uhtlnthon wo ask for
tho necessary potltnce, gacrlflco, and
co opuratlon of the dtstribVlou trades
