. Washington, May 11. A decision
from the U. S. food administration
of great interest to the Florida peo people
ple people dealing in food commodities, has
been secured by Congressman Frank 1
Clark. This statement by the food
administration meets the ideas pre presented
sented presented by Congressman Clark in be behalf
half behalf of the Florida people as to what
constitutes a fair margin of profit. It
will be read with interest in every
community throughout the state. It
is as follows:
The food administration act of Au August
gust August 10 exempts from license the re--
tail grocer whose gross sales of food
commoditios does not exceed $10,000
a year. Our control, therefore, must
be indirect (in order to protect th
consumer) on any retailer who may be
chargin gexcessive prices. It is proper
for us to take this position inasmuch
as the only provision of the act from
which the retailer is exempt is the
licensing provision. He is subject to
the other provisions of the statute,
which make it unlawful .wilfully to
destroy any necessaries, to hoard, to
make any unjust or any unreasonable
rate or to enter into any conspiracy
or combination to restrict the supply
and distribution of food commities.
We have adopted three general
plans of controlling the unlicensed re retailer:

administrators of fair prices which
will serve as guides to householders in
making purchases, in order that they
may ascertain that they are not being

a glowing tribute of a noble soul, and

Ever realize that every dollar you spend makes some one
work? Of course the work was done before you spent your dollars,
but if you and many others didn't spend money for certain articles,
other men would cease to make them. They would then devote
their services to something else for which there was a demand.
Just now the demand for "Goods and Services" for war purposes
is greater than the supply. Therefore, when you refrain from buy buying
ing buying the things not absolutely necessary for health and efficiency,
you are releasing labor and materials which our Government
needs to win the war.

gate that requests everyone to please
shut the gate. See that it is done.

IF M E
A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani. if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
