Through the postmasters of the
country, the war department will
within the next few weeks dispose

surplus foodstuffs, amounting to ap
proximately 241.000.000 pounds.
This surplus, consisting of canned
vegetables and meats, is expected to
be sold within a week at prices" rep

plus parcel post charges from the
Arrangement for the sale of the
foodstuffs, directed by a resolution
passed Tuesday by the house, were

office department officials. Secretary
Baker said a price list covering the
entire available surplus would be
prepared at once and a copy thereof,
sent to each of the 54.000 postmas-
ters of the country as well as to ev-
ery rural mail carrier. So it may be

Original Plan Abandoned
The original plan of procedure in
disposing of the surplus stocks has
been abandoned. Tt comprised the
selling of the stocks in carload lots
to municipalities and they in turn
reselling them through the medium
of public markets. But the cities
themselves did not take favorably
to the proposal and in numerous in
stances local dealers threatened to
enjoin the city officials from pur
chasing such foodstuffs anl reselling
it at below the market prices while
in others no provision could be found
in the charter whereby they could
expend money for these supplies on
a prospect of selling them. Conse
quently the plan has been abandon
ed for whet is believed to be the
more successful one.
