THE TDAJLT COURIER, CONNEI-LSVILLE, PA. ALLIES DEMAND MORE CEREALS American Meat Restrictions Relaxed to Effect Greater * Wheat Savings. ARGENTINE ARRIVALS SHORT. Meat Supply Here Considerably Enlarged -- Food Administration, How«ver, Warns A0ain*t Waste. : Tbe alltei have made farther and Increased demands for breadotuffa, these enlarged demands being caused to some degree by shortage In arrivals from the Argentine. It Is, therefor*, necessary for the CL S. Food Administration to urge a still further redaction In the consumption of bread and breadstuffs generally If we arc to meet our export necessities. The Food Admin- Utmtioa has Issued a statement explaining the situation in detail, partfc- aMrly tbe reasons which lead It, for tb« parpose of centering effort for the tine being upon tbe cereal situation to relax temporarily the restriction* on meet consumption, Z; Experience snows, this statement says, that tbe consumption ot bread- ·tuffs is intimately associated with tbe ionarampUoo of meat Por various reasons oar «appUeE ol m«at for the next two or three months are considerably enlarged. *ad we can supply the allies with all of the meat products which transportation facilities render possible aid at the same time somewhat increase our own consumption. In these circumstances the Pood Administration considers it wise to relax tbe voluntary restrictions on meat con- ·vznption to some extent with a view to farther decreasing bread consumption. Conservation of food must be *d- Justed' to meet necessities from time to tlra*, for neither predaction, nor allied demands are constant factors, nor cmn any of these factors be anticipated for long periods In advance In. the disturbed conditions to which we at present lire. While the world situation la.I not one that warrants any relaxation I ID tbe efforts to eliminate ^waste or to r*Jax economy hi food, the Administration desires to secure better adjustment ti\ foo# balances, So lng as tbe present conditions continue thfe only special restrictions we ask are'the beefles* and portJes* Tnwday. Tbe meatless meal and tbe porktess Saturday are no longer asked. The farmers of tbe United States are responding to the national call to Increase hog production. Their hi- ! crease, to all appearances. Is being-attained more rapidly. Of more Jaime-'j dl*te Importance, however, are several complex factors which n*ve effected an Immediate increase In meat »up- piiea Tbe transportation shortage before tbe government took over the _rnll- roads, tbe bad weather In January and early lu February,-the targe percentage of immature corn In the last bar- Test arid the necessity of feeding this corn as rapidlras possible to save It from decay, have not only resulted In backing up tbe bogs--on the farms for a longer period of feeding, but have resulted In a great Increase in their average weight and will result* with Improved transportation, conditions, which already appear, In larger than normal arrivals at market for the next two or three months. The weight of bogs coming/ to tbe market for tb« past two weeks Indicates an Increase in weight of from an average of 203 pounds last jeer to tbe almost unprecedented average of 232 pound*, or a n«t ra- CTM»e In their meat value of over 15 par cent TbJx IB a distinct 'addition to tbe nation's meat supply. It there- far* DOW aacma certain that we have ·ocb enlarged voppUea for at least -ions* months to come, that we can not * *nty increase our export* to the alliaa to th* full extent "of tb*lr transporta- tlao facilities, bet at the same time can properly Increase oar domestic consumption. Tbe response of tbe pnblte to our requests for reduced consumption of - meat during tbe past few months n« been most gratifying, and this service .aloM has enabled the government during this period to provide each supplies ac transportation to tbe Qlliea permitted. Tbe Administration also soggest* that in those parts of the country where the old fashioned home preservation ol pork Is itQl tbe custom, this practice should be extended at the prevent ttxae, ae it will relieve the burden upon transportation to and from tbe pecking booaea and t* economically Bound as sartoff tbe cost of packing operations and at the same time will provide horoe supplies of pork to last __over the months of decreased auppllea. Great Wheat Stocks Isolated. If» the shortage In ships t»at Is putting the Allies and the United States on wheat rations. Great stocks of wheflt are Isolated In India, and Australia. At great sacrlflco to ship-space and ose Hie Allies are forced to secure some wheat from Argentina. On' January 1, Australia had stored 100,000,000 nnsheis of wheat that was ready for export--but there were no ships.' Then came the new crop with an exportable surplus of 80,000,000 bushels. Xow Australia has approximately 180,000,000 bushels waiting for ships. India, »t tbe same time, bad 70,000,000 bushels of wheat stored for export During April 50,000,000 bushels more out of th» new crop will be added to the pile. Argentina closed the last ship, ping season with ll,000,00(r bushels of wheat. loft In the stock available for export. The new crop will add ISS.OOOiOOO to tbe left over. It is not a problem that the wheat does not exist In the world--It Is entirely a problem oC shipping, which has thrown on America the obligation of dividing our stock with the Allies. All Should Have Vltnl Tovrer. SIGN PLEDGE TO CARRY OUT FOOD ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM. POST CARDS STORES. Explain New Wheat Ruling to Thousands of Customers--Insures Greater Food Saving. The Food Administration desires to repeat that It does not want to give tbe Impression that these ore times when simplicity and moderation of living are not critically necessary, bat that Its sole cleslro la to secure on nd- Jnsrtment between our different food j supplies imd meet changing conditions from time to time and to keep tbe public fully and frankly advised o Its position with the* full confidence and reJlance-that whenever It becomes necessary renewed appeals for Baring win met the same loyal res])onse as In tbi Grocers of the nation have accepted enthusiastically the 50-50 basis for the purchase of, wheat Soar and are doing their utmost to explain the new regulation to the housewife. This ruling by the D. S. Food Administration requires each purchaser of wlieat flour to buy one pound of cereal substitute, one kind or assorted, for every pound of wheat flour. It was necessary to restrict the use of wneat flour In order that the allies and our fighting forces abroad might b« assured of an adequate supply of wheat to meet their vital needs. This supply must come from our savings because ·fte have already sent our normal surplus. Wheat saving pledge cards were forwarded by the Food Administration to all retail food * merchants, and these are _betng signed and posted In stores throughout the country. This card states, "We pledge ourselves loyally- to carry out the Food Administration program. -In -accordance with tMs order we will not sell any wheat flour except where die purchaser buys an equal weight o£ one or mom of the following.

MONDAY, APRIL 15, 191S HISTORIC FLAG INCIDENTS BATTLE FLAG DAY S OME thirty-five years ago the gold-domed marble State Capito! at Hartford, Conn., illustrated above, which stands so imposingly upon an eminence in Busnell Park in that city, was completed. A day was set aside for transferring the tattared, war-scarred battfe flags from the state arsenal to the new Capitol, where they now repose in state, revered and honored by hundreds of visitors who view them daily. The event of their transference went forward with great military pomp and honor. And the day was called. O A r T"T'¥ r* r"¥ A O F\ A "V BATTLE FLAG DAY Each tattered banner was carried in the procession at the head of the living remnant of the original regiment that bore it to the fiont through the bitterly fought bottles of the Civil War. And the ennrc city was ODC -wind-blown, fluttering mats of the Red and White and Blue. It was a day of w iW enthusiasm. Patriotism ran Riot The eight of these battle-scarred banners made men to cheer and throw hats into the air; women screamed and old veterans' cheeks ran wet with tews in the ecstasy of their patriotism. And who shall shall say that American patriotism is dead? OCCASSION only is required lo make it burst forth, a strong, healthy exprersskm of sympathy with tha honored prba'ples in which thia Republic stands founded. Thrr: are many occaiions that should be Fla$f Days with every true American citizen. Every N»linoal t Stale and Ovic Holiday is a day upon which to jhow your patriotism and SHOW THE FLAG.
