should maintain the remainder of his
life. 'Some authorities claim that wt
will be able to cure between 60 and
75 per cent of those previously re

At the Temple Today
The Paramount picture "Arms and
the Girl," starring winsome Billie
Burke, is the attraction at the Temple

today. This picture deserves a large

patronage. It follows rather closely
the stage version of a few years ago
which met with unprecedented suc

cess on Broadway. Briefly the plot is: j
Ruth Sherwood, an American girl, is
stranded in Belgium at the opening

of the present war, without money or
friends and innocently exchanges
passports with a Russian girl a spy.
Wilifred Ferrers, a young American,!
helps the Russian, girl by the loan of

his automobile. The Germans seize the.t
town, Ferrers is arrested and sentenc-
ed to be shot. The girl saves him by.
declaring him to be her fiance. The
German general doubts this and or-;
ders them to be 'married at onceJ
Very amusing as well as embarrass-,
ing situations follow. The husband
escapes, the real fiance appears and j
there are many happy developments'

This production was directed by,
Joseph Kaufman. The cast is ex

tremely, well chosen and Miss Burke
is at her best. There are two mem-'

Do you like to dance ? Yes, of course
you do, for it can be made a pleasant
and healthful diversion. But dancing
takes its place far away in the
background in comparison to the help
we must now give our boys over on
the other side. But when the pleasant
diversion and the substantial help can
be merged into one; then indeed can
it be made a rare pleasure. Thus it

Explain New Wheat RuHng to
Thousands of Customers In Insures
sures Insures Greater Food Saving.
Grocers of the nation have accepted
enthusiastically the 50-50 basis for the
purchase of wheat flour and are doing
their utmost to explain the new regu regulation
lation regulation to the housewife. This ruling by
the U. S. Food Administration requires
each purchaser of wheat flour to buy
one pound of cereal substitute, one
kind or assorted, for every pound of
wheat flour. It was necessary, to re restrict
strict restrict the use of wheat flour in order,
that the allies and pur fighting forces
abroad might be assured of an ade adequate
quate adequate supply of wheat to meet their
vital needs. This supply must come
from our savings because we have al already

Wheat saving pledge cards were for forwarded
warded forwarded by the'Food Administration to
all retail food merchants, and these
are being signed and posted In stores
throughout the country. This card
States, "We pledge ourselves loyally to

gram. program. In accordance with this order
we will not sell any wheat flour except
where the purchaser buys an equal
weight of one or more of the following,
a greater use of which In the home
will save wheat:
"Cornmeal, corn flour, edible corn
starch, hominy, corn grits, barley flour,
potato flour, sweet potato flour, soy
bean flour, f eterita flour and meals,
rice, rice flour, oatmeal, rolled oats and
buckwheat flour."

Some confusion has resulted en the

part of the consumer in construing
this "50-50" ruling to mean that an
equal amount in value of substitutes
must be purchased with wheat flour.
This is a mistaken idea. The ruling
states that the consumer In purchasing
flour shall "buy at the same time an
equal weight of other cereals."
One exception to this ruling is con concerning
cerning concerning graham, flour and whole Wheat
flour, which may be sold at the ratio
of three pounds to five pounds of
wheat flour. This provision is made
because approximately 25 per cent
mpre of the wheat berry is used in the
manufacture of these flours than stand standard
ard standard wheat flour.
Another, exception Is that concern concerning
ing concerning mixed flours containing less than
50 per cent of wheat flour, which may
be sold without substitutes. Retailers,
however, are forbidden to sell mixed
flours containing more than 50 per
cent, of wheat flour to any person un unless
less unless the amount of wheat flour substi substitutes

one pound of substitutes for each
pound of wheat flour.
A special exemption may be granted
upon application in the case of special specially
ly specially prepared infants' and Invalids food
containing flour where the necessity is
shown.
Some misunderstanding seems to ex exist
ist exist on the part of consumers in assum assuming
ing assuming that with "the purchase of wheat
flour one must confine the additional
50 per cent purchase to one of the
substitutes. This Is not the esse. One
may select .from the entire range of
substitutes a sufficient amount of each
to bring the total weight of an substi substitutes
tutes substitutes equal to the weight of the wheat
flour purchased. For instance. If a
purchase of 24 pounds of wheat flour
is made a range of substitutes may be
selected as follows :
Cornmeal, 8 pounds; corn grits, 4
pounds; rice, 4 pounds; buckwheat, 2
pounds ; corn starch, 1 pound ; hominy,
2 pounds ; rolled oats, 3 pounds.
These substitutes may be used la
the following manner:
Cornmeal, 8 Pounds. Corn bread, no

one-fourth flour or one-third rice or
one-third hominy; 20 per cent substi substitutes
