Food Administrator O. II Lockwood
is finding that tho duty of county food
administrator includes a lot of talking
and in fact a littlo more than ho had
figured on when he took tho job. The
talking comes in when ho issues sugar
permits for canning purposes. Although
he has a few set questions to ask re
garding how many times a party has ap
plied for 25 pounds of sugar for canning
purposes, his troubles do not end tlwre.
It geems that many who apply for sugar
have considerable to say on the side
and this all takes time. Ho is now is
suing an average of 150 permits each
day. Last week the total number was
845 and to applicant there was the us
ual farm of questions asked. Last Sat

197. Monday 164 were issued and Tues

during his good behavior. At one time
it was thought ho should be examined
as to his Banity. During his examina

smarter than all of the lawyers in Sa

statement alone should justify the ex
amination of any man on the grounds
of temporary mental derangement.
