Attorney for Nebraska Admin
istrator Will Decide What
Action is to Be Taken
Ed P. Smith, attorney for the Ne
oraska food administration, is going
over the evidence against a number
of retail grocers in the state who have
been selling sugar and other staple
commodities in quantities greater
than permitted by the federal food
administration under the anti-hoarding
Some of the violations are said to
be flagrant. One retailer in a town in
the state is distributing hand bills
over the town asking people to come
in and get his prices on 100-pound
lots of sugar', and is selling sugar in
100-pound sacks, though the govern
ment's regulation is that anyone hav
ing more than a 60-day supply of
sugar or any other staple on hand is
guilty of hoarding, the seller equally
liable 'with the buyer.
In another part of the state a firm
, which has never done a grocery busi
ness and whose business is entirely
foreign to the handling of sugar,' has
in some, unaccountable manner ob
tained a large quantity of sugar, and
is selling it out in 100-pound sacks.
This case is also under investigation.
Reports Are Numerous.
The reports coming to the office
of Food Administrator Wattles of
violations of the rules are numerous,
but have all been referred to Attorney
Smith, who is preparing to give an
opinion as to what action should be
taken immediately against alleged
guilty persons and concerns.
- On account of the fact that the
sugar situation has eased up some
what, the food administration is now
sanctioning sales of sugar up to 25
pounds to a single purchaser. Up to
a week of two ago the dealers were
urged not to sell more than $1 worth
to any person at a time.
Bakers Soon Will Have .
To Standardize Loaf
' Omaha may ejrpect to get bread for
6 or 7 cents a pound after a while,
1 if the bakers here do as well as they
havCdone in some cities throughout
the country. Information contained
in a government chart on wheat,
flour and bread pricey of the coun
try shows that, although millers of
Minneapolis are now getting $10.50
a barrel for flour, bakers in some sec
tions who are selling for cash, and
make no deliveries, are able to put
out a full pound loaf for from 6 to 7
cents. . ' '
These are the bakers who have
standardised their loaf. , '
On December 10 all bakers
throughout the country are required
to standardize their loaf, as this is
one of the requirements under the
baker's license; Under this require
ment bakers must ' after that date
makes loaves of 16 ounces, 24 ounces,
or multiples thereof, i ;,, s 4
