United States Food Administration
Home Card for 1918
Our problem is to feed the Allies
and our own soldiers abroad by send sending
ing sending them as much food as we can of
the most concentrated nutritive value
in the least shipping space. These
foods are.' wheat beef, pork, butter
and sugar.
Our solution is to eat less of these
and as little of all foods as will sup
port health and strength. All saving
counts for victory. : V
The food administration asks every
loval American to help win the war
by maintaining rigidly as a minimum
of saving the following program:
Have two meatlessy days (Monday
and Wednesday) in every week ana
one wheatless meal in every day.
On "wheatless" days and in "wheat
less" meals of other days use no
crackers, pastry, macaroni, breakfast
food or other cereal food containing
wheat, and use no wheat flour in any
form except the small amount that
may be needed for thickening soups
or gravies, or for a binder in corn
bread and other cereal breads. As to
bread, if you bake it at home, us
other cereals than wheat, and if you
buy it, buy only war bread. Our object
is that we should buy and consure
one-thind less wheat products than we
did last year.
Have one meatless day (Tuesday)
in every week and onmeatless meal
in every day. Have two porkless days
(Tuesday and Saturday) in every
"Meatless" means without any cat
tle, or hog or sheep products. On
I other days use mutton and lamb in
preference to beef or pork. "Pork-
ess" means without pork, bacon, ham,
ard or pork products, fresh or pre
served. Use fish, poultry and eggs. As
i nation we eat and waste nearly
wice as much meat as we need.
Make every -day fat-saving day,
(butter, lard, lard substitutes, etc.)
Fry less; make, broil, boil or stew
oods instead. Save meat drippings;
use these and vegetable oils for cook
ing instead of butter. Butter has food
values vital to children: therefore,
give it to them. Use it only on the I

table. Waste no soap; it is made from
at. Be careful of all fats. We use
and waste two and a half times as
much fat as we need.
Make every day a sugar-saving day.
Use less sugar. Less sweet drinks and
candy containing sugar should be
used in war time.A.s a' nation we have
used twice as much sugar as we need.
Use fruits, vegetables and potatoes
abundantly. These foods are health healthful

now than in peace times, except foods
canned, dried or preserved in the
home, is helping to defeat the food
administration in its attempt to se secure

food in households is both selfish and

The council is composed of delegates
from five metal trades unions and
represent some 600 men. It went on
record as urging the Emergency

the work on the War Wonder and the

the said company is so extraordinar

"his people," meaning the Germans.

an "American-German" in Germany,
such a speech would hardly have been
out of his mouth before' he would
have been in jail. He is not the proper

Mr. Hoover called attention to the fact

.. "In August the French-government,
found itself unable to maintain even;
this; ration," Mr. Hoover declared.)
"An appeal was made to America.'
France needed 5 100,000 tons. We:
agreed; to fill ? this demand and up to
December had shipped 85,423 tons.. In!
the meantime an appeal was made to
the American public to reduce Its sug sugar
ar sugar consumption, and requests werej
made to distributors to supply the
confectionary and sweet drinks trade
with 50 per cent, of normal supply.
This has been generally followed, al-!
though1 such regulations were volua,
tary; as the food administration had1
no authority to Impose them."
Domestic Price Is 8J4 to 9 Cents. ;
Retail grocers throughout the coun-t
try are supposed to take a profit of noi
more .than 50 cents a hundred half a
cent a pound--on sugar. By reason of,'
food administration regulations, bind-j
ihg refiners ad wholesalers, the re retailer
tailer retailer Is able today to buy sugar at
from 8 to 8H cents a pound. This!
enables him to sell to the housewife at
8H to 9 cents a pound.
There have been some violations of'
the sugar rulings. Mr. Hoover said
recently : "Salesof sugar from 16 toi

ministrators." administrators." Effect on Military Situation.
American sugar stocks could bs fill filled
ed filled to normal very soon if ships could
be .sent o Java, where 250,000 tons of
sugar is waiting for shipment But1
the shipping situation is so a cut that;
the nation canno$ spare the eleven
ships' needed to transport this sugar.:
It would take the boats one year to
haul 250,000 tons. In the same time
they s could be used s for transporting

,200,000 soldiers to France. ;

The food administration believes
that the American public will diminish:
Its sugar consumption by 10 or 15 per'
cent! when it Is made clear that such
sugar saving is a patriotic act and,
when it is understood '.that there are
plenty of sweeteners available to take,
the place of sugar, such as honey ori
corn syrup. t
Why Shortage' Exists, ;
The three great sugar producing cen-j
ttrs of the world are Germany, thej
West and, East Indies.: .German sugar;
Is, of, course, used at home. The East!
Indian, sugar Is unavailable .because of
the ship shortage. -i
While- D; boats made big inroads on j
the world's shipping, France and Italy ;

manufacture. England In the mean meantime
time meantime was cut off from German sugar
1,400,000, tons a year because of the
war. 1 The result has been that the al allied

Pleasure Cars Likely to Have to Pro Proceed
ceed Proceed from Factory to Purchaser
by Their Own Power
The Washington correspondent of
the Jacksonville Metropolis says:
Washington,1 Jan-. 26. From indi indications,
cations, indications, shipments of motor cars by
rail will be few and far between dur
ing the coming months. WhileDirec-N
tor General McAdoo has made no
ruling on the subject it is obvious that
the railroad congestion will continue
to be such that shipment of pleasure
cars, especially, by rail will be al almost
most almost out of the question. t
In all probability the example set
by the national capital city will be fol followed
lowed followed more or less generally thru-..
out the country. Most of the ma machines
chines machines received jn .Washington will
have to be driven overland from the
factories. A couple of Washington
firms have Hbeen following this plan
for some time past. Until the lake
season, closed the cars were shipped
from Detroit by water to Cleveland
and then driven to Washington, atiout
a two-day and a half journey, over
roads which, with the exception of a
few miles the other side of Pittsburg
are as good as are to be found any anywhere.
where. anywhere. One firm is now operating what is
called a "drive-away crew" that is,
a crew of men who go to the factory
and get the cars and drive them back
to Washington.
The plan has been in operation some
little time and is meeting with success
and it is understood that one or two
more concerns are arranging to put
the same plan into effect.
The men whox bring the cars thru
in this, manner are all skilled drivers,
who understand "both, the driving and
the 'mechanical features of a machine.
The pace set is no' greater than twen twenty
ty twenty miles an hour at any time, and it is
said that when the machines arrive in
Washington they have been driven
just far enough to work them in
properly. f v (
-With this plan ..of driving in opera operation
tion operation it isv n .gt likely thltf all the cars
needed to supply the demand will be
obtained, first, because sufficient
crews cannot be kept on the road to
bring them through, and,' secondly,
stnd of vastly more importance,, the
fact that the factories are all curtail curtailing
ing curtailing production. ?
With this rule in effect every deal dealer's
er's dealer's allotment will be pared down in
proportion to what he contracted for,
what he sold last year and what the
entire output of the factory will be.
As in every other husiness, it is going
to be a case of first come first served,
and the man who plans to buy now,
even though he is not ready for de delivery
livery delivery until a month or, six weeks
hence, will do well to get his order in
Dealers' show-room floors this year
are not going to be backgrounds for
automobiles, nor are warehouses to be
abiding places for stocks of, cars.
Rather, when the deal for a machine
is about to be closed and the pros prospect
pect prospect asks when delivery can be made,
it will be a case of looking on the
delivery sheet and seeing how many
orders are ahead. ;
According to government experts,
who are studyingie transportation
problem from all angles, the motor
truck industry v is about to enter on
its era of greatest development. The
war is bringing the .industry up v to
the highest pinnacle of; efficiency,
these experts say. V
Greatest Activity
"The greatest activity the motor
truck industry has ever known prom promises
ises promises to develop in the next few
months," said a government official.
"All men who are, connected in any
way with the industry believe this to
be a fact. Development of motor truck
construction, the successful adapta adaptation
tion adaptation of the motor-driven vehicle to
business transportation problems and
the business m.n's realization of tht
motor truck's economy and efficiency
are partly responsible for the pros prosperity
perity prosperity the truck business now enjoys
and the greater prospects that are at
hand. '..
. "But the principal reason why the
motor truck is about to enter upon a
new era is the congested condition of
the railroads, due to abnormally large
business and war conditions. The ef effect
fect effect of this will be that merchants
and manufacturers will turn to the
motor truck for the carrying of raw
materials and finished products within
limited areas." -"It
is reported that the railroads
are working 40 per cent beyond their
normal capacity and that passenger
schedules have been curtailed to the
minimum to give the freight matter a
better chance. Yet no one expects
that freight congestion will be great greatly
ly greatly relieved, because the roads will
have thousands of troops and huge
quantities of munitions to move for
the government.
"The council of national defense has
already issued a warning with the
suggestion that manufacturers take
care of short hauls themselves and
the result will invariably be that for
runs up to about 150 mile3 the motor
truck will be used instead of the rail railroad,
road, railroad, freight cars and therefore all
mptor truck makers are expecting a
greatly increased demand."
