LOCAL GEOCERS ARE
Think Food . Administrator
When it becomes apparent there is
aa actual shortage of wheat in the
country and when the entire nation is
put oa a wheatless oasis by food Ad'
ministrator Hoover, the Grocers' anxil
iary of the business men's league of
the Commercial Club declared at a
meeting held last evening that no more
loyal people would be found than in
Salem and Marion county.
But the grocers of the eity feel that
it is not for the best interest of this
community that Oregon should be dis
criminated against and put on a
wheatless basis, especially as attention
was called to the published statement
of Hoovw that if the country would
continue on using the 50-50 plan of
wheat substitutes, there is enou;
wheat in the country to supply our
allies and ourselves until after harvest,
The grocers at the meeting held last
evening expressed themselves as em
phatically against a wheatless Oregos
and official action will be taken at
their meeting to be held Friday after
noon at 2 o'clock at the Commercial
Club when they will meet with food
administrator F. W. Steusloff.
Reference was made last evening to
the fact that Canada has no restrictions
on the use of wheat flour or in tne
amount of sugar used and that in parts
of the east, there is no difficulty in
buying all the wheat flour needed.
The jrocers at tneir meeting last
evening passed resolutions to the effect
that in view of the latest reports from
wajmingion, v. i. wai mere was sui
ficient wheat an4 flour to earry the
allies and this country over until after
harvest if people continue to con
serve as in the past few months, that
it was the sense of the retail grocers
of Salem that the aetion of the Ore
gon state food administration was pre
mature placing the state on a wheat
less basis. Also that when the emerg
ency arises, the right thing to do would
be to put the entire country on a
wheatless basis and ' that the stats
state food administrators "in Portland
should not sinclo out this state.
The opinion .was also expressed that
the people of Salem and Marion county
had shown their loyalty in the Red
Cross and Liberty Loan drives and in
other ways and that now to ask them
to bo on a wheatless basis when there
was no national action was just asking
a little too much.
In other words, the grocers are will
ing to go on a wheatless basis when
the nation goes. This stand will be
taken more definitely at the meeting
called for Friday when all bakers and
eroccrs In the county are called to
meet at the Commercial club.
