A a emphasizing the importance of the work that county food directors will be called upon to do or. Harry e. Barnard Indiana food administrator again appealed to the Indiana state Council of defense at its meeting october 31, to urge county councils to make nominations for these important posts. Or. Barnard said the enforcement of the Federal licensing Law which will control retail prices for firms doing a Gross business in excess of $100,000 per year tomorrow november 1, makes More imperative the selection of a i competent county director. He stated that the food administration through publicity channels expects to effect what will amount to a Quot blacklisting Quot of All retail groceries that ask an unfair profit for their goods and Are not within the scope of the Federal License Law. Up to noon wednesday Only thirty nine of the ninety two counties had made a recommendation and As a result the tardy county councils received a very pointed and emphatic Telegram from the state Council of defense directing that they get Busy and nominate a qualified food administrator at once. These nominations will then be investigated and if found satisfactory will be commissioned by the Federal food administration. Or. Barnard also stated that there is an evidence of organized opposition to the food card in. Rollent. In Albion ind., he said school children whose mothers had signed cards had returned to school with the information that their mothers declined to display the cards for the reason that a Man whose name is now said to be in Possession of the department of Justice had informed them that the display of these window cards spotted the House for Quot the germans who would get them Quot when the enemy soldiers came into the town. Or. Barnard said mayor Mcclellan of Auburn said the Rumor is persistent there that the government will fix a maximum Price for hogs of $10 to $12 per Hundred weight and that As a result the food enrolment Campaign is seriously handicapped. Miss Mary e. Culbertson of Richmond Secretary of the Wayne county Council of defense telegraphed or. Barnard said that Quot rumours Are travelling faster than the food card agents and that it is difficult indeed to persuade people that they Are not signing something Over to the government when they sign the food enrolment the state Council will make thorough investigation of the facts upon which these false reports Are based and in turn report the names of the guilty to the agents of the department of Justice who have been assigned to stamping out sedition of this character. Or. Barnard reported an Appeal to Indiana Farmers to produce More sugar beets to relieve the sugar famine had been met with the discouraging statement that with the Price of Corn advanced 250 per cent and of sugar but 50 per cent., there was Little likelihood of the sugar beet acreage being increased to make room for Corn. The Only Indiana sugar beet factory reported that it cannot increase its output which is 13,000,000 pounds of sugar per year. At the suggestion of g. I. Christie chairman of the committee on food production and conservation the state Council referred to the National food administration at Washington the resolutions adopted by hog growers of the state in conference at Purdue that the government establish a ratio Between the Price of hogs and of Corn and that prompt action is necessary if Indiana is to increase its hog production 20 per cent next year. The matter of endorsing the organization of a girls working Reserve from High school students who agree to devote two hours per week to patriotic activity As done under the direction of mrs. Southgate in the Michigan City ind., High school was referred to a committee who will investigate and report. At the request of Charles Fox chairman of the labor committee the Council also will investigate the action of members of the Gibson county Council of defense who were reported to have interested themselves in the matter of the removal of the Sexton garment company from Princeton ind., following the proposed formation of a Union by its employees. The garment company has government contracts which it is said to have transferred to Fairfield 111., leaving the Princeton Plant and eighty five girls Idle. It was reported by or. Kurrie that the Federal government had issued an order effective november 1, consistent with the Resolution adopted by the Indiana state Council of defense september 17, that no open top cars be used for the shipment of automobiles merchandise Stone or other building material until the Coal car shortage has been relieved. The report of Charles w. Fairbanks of the committee to which was referred the matter of taking action relative to the showing of Quot atrocity pictures Quot in moving picture Heaters was that there is no occasion for action by the Council. The report was approved. At the suggestion of Isaac d. Straus to whom was referred the question of endorsing the Junior training Camp the Council will await a statement of the attitude of the United states department of labor with whose activities in connection with the United states boys working Reserve the Junior training Camps might conflict. Enemy propaganda. The unscrupulous propaganda for enemy votes naturally eschews All allegiance to truth or conscience. It is designed to Appeal to the unthinking and it is formulated to convince those who Are prone to subscribe to anything that appears in Large print. One of the favorite enemy doctrines is that the United states will be open to invasion if not destruction if we Send our troops to France. It seems to have a kind of superficial Verity and it has aroused considerable popular apprehension for that reason. It is hardly necessary to refute this particular bit of misinformation. A moment s thought will persuade any one that the United states is developing the greatest military machine the country Ever had. No matter How Many units we Send abroad we shall still have More soldiers in training than our ideas of National defense Ever conceived As necessary. This kind of thing is just a Sample of the methods and results of Kais Ristic propaganda in the United states. We shall have to be on our guard against All varieties of distortion of fact. We must not allow ourselves to be deluded by palpable Tribune. America is requested to save fats to make the German ranks thin. That will do it and you can help. Use a third of an ounce less every Day. Every Square meal you save for the boys in the trenches and their folks Back Home brings Kai sexism that much nearer moral exempt from hoarding la food administrator Calls attention to provisions of License Law effective november 1 special pains have been taken by or. Harry e. Barnard Indiana food administrator and by the Indiana state Council of defense to make it Clear that the Federal food administration specifically excludes from the list of food hoarders who May be made to feel the penalty of the Law which becomes effective today the housewife who has preserved perishables from her own Garden or Orchard or which she has purchased and expects to use in substitution for Staples during the approaching Winter. Or. Barnard s warning against the hoarding of Staples is further emphasized however in his statement exempting the patriotic housewife from the provisions of the Bill. This statement serves to answer Many questions that have come to the state Council of defense and should serve As a guide to hundreds of Indiana housewives who have been curious and fearing imposition by unauthorized individuals and statements. The government encourages and never criticises the housewife who has conserved her own Supply of perishables. The Rule against hoarding applies peculiarly to such Staples As sugar and flour. If the housewife has been accustomed to purchasing sugar in five Pound lots and buys by the Hundred weight or if she has been accustomed to buying flour by the Twenty four and a half Pound sack and takes to buying by the barrel then certainly she May be justly charged with hoarding but not directing attention to the penal clause of the new Bill prohibiting hoarding or. Barnard says Quot this Law does not apply Only to dealers in foodstuffs. It says any person and it is just As much a violation of the Law for a housewife to buy More sugar than she needs As it is for a wholesaler to buy canned goods or sugar for the purpose of holding them for higher prices. Quot any information As to the practice of hoarding on the part of individuals or dealers should be reported to me at once. An investigation will be started promptly by the department of Justice on any complaints made by retailers against wholesalers or on information supplied by individuals against individuals or the Section fixing the penalty for violation of the hoarding provision of the food control Bill follows that any person who wilfully hoards any necessaries shall upon conviction thereof be fined not exceeding $5,000, or be imprisoned for not More than ten years or both.
