THE SITUATION IS CLEARED LOWEST, BILLS ARE former Practices of Merchants Must Zfoir Be Abandoned and Uniform Enle Foil owed; County Administrator Gives Notice to Enforce Order. The misunderstanding and confusion that has prevailed up to this time with respect to the flour selling rule, has been cleared up by an order issued Saturday by the State Food Administration directing that the original proclamation of the President be adhered to. This means that, beginning today, consumers must purchase a pound of other cereals every time they purchase a pound of flour, instead oC in the ratio of six pounds of flour to one of cereals, as was the ruling in force up to an, including Saturday. The proclamation of. the President, under which the order of the Food Administration was issued and made effective January 28 very explicitly provided that the consumer should buy and the retailer should sell wheat flour "only with an equal weight of other cereals." Without other information than the press reports a number of ConneHsviHe. merchants began selling floor on the pound for pound; basis. Others placed a different con-i struction upon it, the result being that! no uniform rule was followed.

The increase in tbe salaries will take effect immediately, the additional ?10 being added to the Ij-ebruary pay. There was some discussion over the ·raise in salaries and the motion car-' ned by a three to two -rote. Directors Hinea and Woods voted for the increase with Directors Hart and Echard against it. President Hetzel cast ois vote for the increase, deciding the qrieadon. Miss Elizabeth Baker of State College was elected to fill the position of Miss Helen Humphreys, who resigned some time ago. Miss Baker will teach English in the high school. The board voted her a salary o£ |90 per month. The school board will appeal from the decision of the Fayette county courts which awarded W. H. Soisson $6,750 for his property which was taken for the erection of the new high school. The case ( win be taken before the 'Supreme court. The case of W. H. Showman, will come up ia April. A meeting of the school board will be "held neit ^Monday night when baci taxes will be discussed. Davidson directed ConnellsviUe merchants to sell flour in proportion of sir pounds to one of other cereals. State Administrator Heinz had temporarily amended the order of tho President because ot an insufficient supply of flour substitutes, under authority granted state administrators in emergencies or exceptional cases. The Washington authorities believing that ample time has been afforded to replenish thc stocks of wheat substitutes to permit .the full operation of the original "pound for pound" regulation, has deemed the withdrawal of tne modified order necp.-^sary for wheat comervaiion. Thc proclamation Saturday therefore di- rf*ts as follows: "It is accordingly oraere.1 that, beginning Monday, February -I, and con- tinning until further notice, all dealers tn wheat flour, either wholesale or retail, will be permitted to sell it only la combination with other recognized wheat substitutes in the minimum ratio of one pound of wheat substitute to each one pound of wheat flour sold, unless H is first definitely de- n ^ovohn, tho taaa the tracks.
