Norman, Oklahoma, March 2<i. 1918,
Mrs. J. y. Adams, County Food Ad-
As you noted in the reports publish-
ed in the Sunday papers of March 24.
the flour shortage in this country is
verv serious. Strict enforcement of
all regulations limiting the sale of
flour must be maintained, if we are
to do our part in the war.
1. All sales of flour should be
based hereafter until August 15th on
an allowance of six pounds per capita.
In households no more than a total of
one and one-half pounds per week of
wheat products per person may be
used. This means that no more than
one and three quarters pounds of Vic-
tory bread containing the required
amount of substitute, and about half a
^ouml total of cooking flour, macaro-
ni. cracKers. pastry, pies and cakes,
and wheat breakfast food combined.
2. i'ublic eating places are to ob-
serve two wheatless meals per week,
Monday and Wednesday as at present,'
and in addition thereto are not to'
serve in the aggregate bread stuffs,
macaroni, pastry, pies and cakes,
wheat breaklast loous, etc..containing
a total of more than two ounces oi
wheat flour to any one guest at any
one meal. No wheat products are to
be served unless specially ordered,
i ublic eating establishments are not
io buy more than six Doundi of wheat
products per ninety meals served.
;j. Ketailers must not .-eli more
than forty-eight pounds oi flour to
country customers and not more than
twenty-four pounds to customers liv-
ing in the city. Sales are not to be
made ottener than would allow more
than six pounds per month for each
member in the purchaser s family. Au
sales of wheat products are to be made
without the sale of an equal weight ol
substitutes, except when the purchas-
er signs a statement to the effect that
he has the substitute on hand and has
not purchased any other flour to bal-
ance it, and wilt use the substitute
with the wheat flour fifty-fifty.
4. Makers and grocers should re-
duce the volume of Victory bread sold
by delivery of a three quarter pound
loaf where a pound loaf was sold be-
lore. and purchasing flour not to ex-
ceed seventy per cent of the average
monthly amount purchased in the four
months prior to March 1st.
6. Manufacturers or others ushig
wheat products for non-food products
must cease such use entirely. Flour
must no longer be used in the making
of paste for paper-hanging or bill
C. Ihere is no limit upon the pur-
chase or use of other cereals and
Hours than those made from wheat
Kvery person should be asked to limit
his consumption of wheat products to
i he \ery lowest possitjlu in order
that our Army anil our Allies may be
furnished enough wheat to win.

THE GREAT W> R HAS MADE
CIGARETTES >. NECESSITY.
"Our boys must have their smokes.
Send them cigarettes!" This is a
familiar appeal now to all of us.
Among those most in demand is
the now famous "toasted"cigarette—
LUCKY STRIKE. Thousands of thia
favorite brand have been shipped to
France. There is something home-
like and friendly to the boys in the
sight of the familiar green packages
with the red circle.
This homelike, appetizing quality
of the LUCKY STRIKE cigarette is
largely due to the fact that the Burley
tobacco used in making it has been
toasted. "It's toasted" was the "slo-
gan" that made a great success of
LUCKY STRIKE in less than a year.
Now the American Tobacco Co. is
making 15 million LUCKY STRIKE
Cigarettes a day.
A Rood part of this immense pro-
duction is makinR its way across the
water to cheer oar boys. The Red
Cross has distributed thousands of
LUCKY STRIKE Cigarettes.
