BASIS ON SUGAR
County and State Administra
tions Both to Check Sales
- in Order to Prevent Vio
lations of Law.
A. C. Lau, deputy food commis
sioner for Nebraska, has worked out
a scheme for the expeditious hand
' ling of sugar under the new regula
tions. He has determined that certificates
for the selling of sugar by retailers
be issued by the food administrator
of each county. Blanks in duplicate
will be sent to each retailer in the
state and these and others selling
out by grocerers and others selling
sugar in retail quantities. One of
these blanks will be retained by the
county administrator and the other
filed in the office of the state food ad
ministrator for checking purposes.
Under the new ruling allotments

based on the quantities sold by such
retailers during the months' of April,

In the southeastern part of the state
and in the semi-arid regions of the
west considerable sorghum and syrup
canes of different kinds have been
planted this year and the restrictions
placed on sugar consumption will un
