Asks America to Cut Sugar
.Consumption 15 Per Cent
If the United States is to meet the
demands for sugar during 1918, con
sumption will have to be reduced 15
per cent from 1917.
In making this statement Gurdon
W. Wattles, federal food administra
tor for Nebraska, points out the im
perative necessity of complying with
the sugar regulations, which are pro
mulgated to meet necessary require
ments. "The total demands, based on 1917
consumption, aggregate 7,945,423 tons,
with available supplies of '6,759,453
tons, or a deficit of 1,185,455 tons,"
says Mr. Wattles.
Wheat Products Placed Upon
New Differential Price Basis
The food administration has made
a ruling establishing a differential
charge for wheat by-products.
The price at the Nebraska mills per
ton is to be $2 over the bran price.
This applies to shorts, standard mid
dlings, gray shorts, gray middlings,
flour middlings and red log.
The price "for mixed feeds, contain
ing all the wheat, except flour, is fixed
at $1.25 over the bran basis per ton.
The bran basis is 38 per cent of the
actual cost of the wheat which goes
This ruling is to eliminate the differ
ent grading of wheat mill products.
