federal food administration, according
to announcement of C. B. Ames, Okla-
Judge Ames emphasized his an-
nouncement by closing three Okla-
homa City bakeries found to be using
less substitute than required by the
regulations. One bakery was closed
for 41 days, another for 14 days and
a third for seven days, dependent
upon the amount of wheat substitute
lacking in the bread and pastry.
Bakeries which do not use the re-
quired amount of substitutes will be
closed and all grocers who sell white
flour without selling an equal amount
of substitutes will be dealt with sum-
marily, according to Judge Ames.
"The fact that we have just harvest-
ed a great wheat crop does not give
us license to throw down the bars
to the flour barrel," Judg Ames said.
"We must observe wheat saving regu-
lations rigidly in order to build up
a reserve of wheat which will tide
us over an emergency."
