"Proceeding on this theory, the
food administration is bending every
effort to cfect a maximum saving in
wheat products to the end that ample
supplies may be available for home,
war and allied requirements."
Kestrirtions imposed by the new

regulations will be accepted by the
American people in the spirit of ccm

economies in all foodstuffs, especially
those that can be readily exported."

than 5 per cent of clear or low grade
flours, none of which may be mixed

of the 1910 pounds of flour remaining

No Social Distinction
Twixt Officers and Men
Washington, Doc. 19. In re
sponse to a senate resolution ask
ing whether there are War depart
ment rules and regulations to pre
vent social intercourse between
officers and men of the army, Sec
retary Baker wrote today to Vice
President Marshall that distinc
tions of rank in the army imply no
social distinction and are solely in
the interest of military discipline.
Frequently in a country like this,
the secretary said, the advantage
of education and culture is in favor
of the soldier.
Nevertheless, he added, safety
demands that the soldier and of
ficer acquire by continuous and un
varying" practice the habit of in
stant obedience to his superior.
