Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATUMDAY, MARCH 2. 101.8 THK LETHBRIDGE DAILT IIFRALD PAGE THIRTEEN What Food Control Is Saving In Canada (Tliitt ui'tli'.li! wild iii typo before, t.uo change fn Food Conlin) took place). Savings which in lliu aggregato amount, to several hundreds tons per 1110111U of beef mid bacon have been effected UK a result of un Order in Council prohibiting serving ol' these moafri in any of the IH.OOfl public eating places in Canada on,Tuesdays and Friday and restricting Uiejr.VseHo que meal on other (lays.

The requirement Hint public eating places provide siibstifulos lor white bread at nil meals and voluntary use of wheal Hour snhutiIutes in the homes have resulted in a large savin)? of wheat flour for oxporl to I lie. Allies. Accurate, figures are not available for (lie increased domestic eonsump-llon of fisli.lmt undoubtedly there has been a very great iuoroitso in s'ueh ei in sumption, as a result: ol' the Food ('out roller's el'forls, and n corresponding doorcase in Iho Canadian ennsnmp-l.ion of beef and bacon, in this way large riimntitios of beef and bacon have been freed for export. Pledge Cards 'Die Kood/Controller has cii:ciilal-ed 1,1 nii.iimi pledge and window cards enlisting vohuilray co-operation of Householders and nearly I,liOll.tHH) oilier pamphlets, recipe books, etc., dealing with the food situation and showing the need of conservation and substitution of other foods for those commodities which are urgently needed overseas. These publications have been printed In both French ami. English, lu addition, the Canadian Kood Liulletin is published periodically in both languages and mailed to representative people throughout the lln-ininion. The daily war menus prepared by a Domestic Science expert, and issued from the Office of the Kood Control-, lor are being followed in thousands of homes and important, savings'of needed food commodities have been effected. The Milk Committee appTiinted by the Kood Controller has carefully studied the cost of production of milk and ipieslions in connection with the supply and prices of milk in urban in cans, glass jars or other containers, the- Kood Controller stimulated the consumption of perishable fresh vegetables and made possible an increase j in the supply of Canned vegetables which are available for the winter months. In this way anioavy waste of fresh vegetables was prevented and 'a saving effected in tin plate. Tn co-opera I ton with Iho provincial governments much has been done to errcourage the, -utilization of inland waters as ti.source of fish supply. / Pledge card campaigns have been conducted in several provinces and arrangements made for similar campaigns in other provinces. In Ontario 'ili'm- work was done in co-operation with I he Ontario Organization of .Resources 'Committee. My I his means I lie need of fooil conservation has been impressed upon the people of the I)o-| minion and the co-operation of the I women in many thousands of homes has been secured. An organization representing the Kood Controller is working In each of the ,provinces. An- educational', campaign has been conducted and the people are being informed of the gravity of the food situation. Prominent, business men and representative women have been enlisted in this work which is being conducted with absolute freedom from political influences. Dining car and" hotel menus have been simplified with a view to conserving food. The Kood Controller has co-operated wilh the Cniterl States Kood Administration, the British War Mission, and representatives of the Allied nations and joint action lias been taken in many instances to secure equitable allocation of certain important food supplies and to obtain for export to tho Allies overseas supplies which were urgently needed. The Kood Controller has secured definite information as to the commodities most needed by the Allies and the co-operation of the Federal ttiid Provincial IJepartmeats of Agrie-ture has been secured in a campaign for greater production, especially of food animals. An Order in Council has been passed upon the recommendation of the Food Controller prohibiting the sale I after certain dates, except under lic-j ense, of cereal foods in packages of i less weight than 20 pounds. This I action will enable the Kood Controller to require that substitutes for wJrjut no packing company will be allowed n greater profit than 2 per cent, on Its total sales during any one year, that one-half of all profits on packing house operations between 7 and .15 per cent, on acinar1 capital invested In tho business shall belong to the (Jov-ernmeiu, and that all profits In .excess of 15 per cent, shall belong to the Government. Upon the recommendation of the I Kood Controller, an Order In Council has been passed prohibiting the use for Hie distillation of potable, liquors of grain of any kind, or any substance which can he used for food. For violation ol .'his Order heavy penalties are provided. An arrangement has been made with the millers Under which mill by-products will be sold by them at. cost, and the margin of profTf. allowed to the dealers may be on a fixed basis for cash. Information lias been obtained as to the available supply of tin plate and the amounts required by the food industries of the Dominion! By curtailing the use of tin plate for other purposes where practicable, it, is hoped to secure a iiufficient supply for the dairy industries. A Uureau of Licenses has been organized in remarkably short time and is dealing promptly with all Inquiries and applications for licenses for the export of the food and other commodities enumerated in the list of exports which are prohibited except under license. Through the Fish Committee of this office, and with the cooperation bf the Canadian Government Hallways, the Food Controller arranged a special fast service for fresh fish in refrigerator cars by the "Seafood Special," running three times per week from IMiiIgruvo, N.S.. to Montreal, and reducing time iu transit from the Atlantic Coast from CO to 45 hours. This regular service, which .was provided without expense to the Government, ensures a steady supply of fresh sea fish, marketed throughout Quebec, and Ontario in good condition and at the lowest possible prices. Co-operation of the express companies has been secured and fish consignments are given special .consideration. The Fisli Committee receives reports on oil shipments from the Atlantic and Investigates the cause of any delays. The Committee arranged for sup-lilies of gasolene for the fish industry neing luven lie hope that a\ lay lie found of nc the excessive? municipalities. Their report offers a plan which if'adopteclyvouhi, it is estimated, effect a saving of more than ?I,Siht.nm) in the cost of milk' distribution in seventeen of Iho principa\ cities of Canada. Their report has been published and is being given wide circulation in Hi permanent solution in;: the problem of reducing the excesslv cost of distributing milk. Tile Food Controller has obtained the power to require all dealers in food 'commodities to secure a license from his ofiee to carry on business. Such licenses may lie cancelled or suspended for violation of any of the Food Conl roller's regulations, lie also lias been given authority to prescribe the conditions upon which any food may be sold, and to regulate such matters as grades, markings, units of measure or weight, and price. In this way the Kood Controller has obtained a control of the trade in foodstuffs which will be used, at his-discretion, to prevent speculation and to keep the profits of middlemen within a reasonable amount. Before 'applying the license system to any particular trade, representatives of that trade will bo consulted as to conditions of licensing, etc. Legitimate dealers will be 'protected and will not. be subjected to injustice or unnecessary Inconvenience by any measures which may be taken In the interests of the general public. Tho Food Controller has required all flour mills with a capacity of 100 barrels of flour or more per day to obtain a license from his office. Every licensed establishment, must submit regular sworn statements of costs of manufacture, and profits on sales and tho net profits of Canadian millers, have been limited to a maximum average of 25 cents on the milling of sufficient wheat In make a. barrel of flour of 106 pounds and Iho offals produced in connection with such milling. The manufacture of standard grades of flour, representing the high-osl percentage of extraction from the wheal, that will give a wholesome loaf of bread, will be compulsory upon all mills, lu this.way there,will be a saving in wheat because a1 larger-, prppnr-f lion of the wheal. Jjerry will .be oil il-' ized for human consumption. -.A W|nxi-muni cash price for each of the sftind-ard grades wi||. be l'lx�SI>fij(>(jj\.iim,e� to' lime. The Food Controller' has appointed Mr. \V. Sauford E\\uis lo supervise the carrying out of this arrangement, with the millers and a .special millers' committee of the Food" Can-U'ollor's Office has been constituted..' By a temporary prohibition of the sale or purchase of peas, beans, tomatoes, heels, celery, corn, spinach, rhubarb, and pumpkins when preserved should be. available to the public, in bulk, if so desired, and to protect Iho inh/i'csts of the consumers by ensuring that, package cereal foods represent fair value for the price charged for them. A committee has investigated the whole question and has reported on the conditions upon which . licenses should be granlcd for the \ sale of Hindi cereal foods iu smaller packages than of 20 pounds weight. Under the powers sec-wed by the Food Controller to require returns from wholesale dealers in food commodities, much information has been obtained as a guide to action in the best, interests of all concerned. A Motion Picture Committee has been constituted to co-operate with the Kood Controller, and films have been shown in every province of the Dominion as a, measure of informing the public as to the importance of food conservation and tho elimination of waste. Slides with food control messages will soon be exhibited in every theatre in Canada. The motion picture exchanges are handling these films and slides without remuneration. An investigation has been conducted into the cost of producing eggs and poultry, coat.of feeding, etc. The Food Controller's regulations in regard to the serving of heel* and bacon and white bread substitutes in public eating places are being enforced. A representative of the Kood Controller's office is visiting hotels, restaurants, etc., in connection with the enforcement of the law and the local police aulhorities are fully co-operating with the Kood Controller. In several cases police court proceedings have been .instituted for failure to comply with the regulations. Canadian requirements of food supplies from the United Slates are being' studied and Canada's interests are being protected. The United Statos Food Administration is showing every possible consideration in this respect, and Canada will obtain lis fair proportion in tho allocation of all supplies. The Kood Controller has prevented an advauoo iu, lh.o price of sugar by requiring the;refineries to supply sugar only upon- the condition "'a' dealers should, 'nut. tak,e advantage .. of the temporary ! short ago to secure high prices/.' This -was made possible bo--cause the Kood Controller for Canada was represented beforo the Internal ional Sugar Commission, whiely".on irols. the ..allocation of all 8n|P"V supplies.' In like manner- j.i ~,an been .possible to check hoard) ., by requiring that only a reason able amount of sugar for the temporary requirements should be sold lo.c(ach family. The. GoYernuif/ni hus announced that in the Maritime Provinces and distillate for the Pacific. Coast fisheries, thus preventing a shortage of these supplies which threatened to tie up the shore fishing fleets on both coasts. Consumption of fish has been increased in the Province of Quebec by a special campaign. Reports from wholesale dealers' show that sales have been increased and that many new orders are being received from small toAvns. Some 500 refrigerator fish display cases have been supplied for retail dealers in fish in order to facilitate marketing in good condition. The Pood Controller's Office is paying part of the cost in order that f.sh may be available to the local dealers at a price which will encourage them to handle fish. A similar offer will be extended to the trade in Western Canada. By stimulating increased consumption of fish and encouraging many new dealers to handle it the Food Controller has effected a very large saving in beef and bacon lor export to the Armies and to the Allied countries. MaxIm'uW'prlt-Rh nave been fixed for winter cailgiil lake fish in the Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,. and protiis of middlemen have been limited thai, the prico to the consumer will be in direct proportion to the price aciually paid to the fishermen. This lias eliminated competitive bidding for the export market.. Under the new arrangement with the fish trade Canadian dealers must be, supplied, so that, ample lake fish wJH'be.available in Western Prov-i: cos to iJi'o.et. domui-lic requirements. Authorities (of each municipality may regulate thc retailers' spread so that the entire trade in winter-caught Western lake fish 18 subject lo strict regulation and' profit;, regulated all the way between Oi" fishermen and the coiiM.imeiY ,'.',',; The'Klsh:;iluoniiiiiitee lias made Ye.c-onVihendat'/(J�'wi th regard to extension of seasons Itt-variims lakes, extension lo catch llnltts. and Hie provision of transportation fai iliiies by co-operation ef i'jovcrnment Departments and others. Some of these recommendations have been put into effect. With the co-opei adoii of the Department of Marine and Fisheries, the �Vwd Controller iii-ranged for the payment, by the'Government of two-thirds of .the transportation charges on certain classc-fi^of Pacific fish, except halibut, and salmon, to points as far east as Winnipeg. In this way encouragement was given in tie- marketing of edible fish, which, up to the present time have been little utilized. Representative.- of the Kood Controller's office an- negotiating with the "acific coasi iisliennen and producing houses in enter m secure the handling of these fj-ii ;u a reasonable profit, only, in open ni;i| they may be made available cheaply to consumers in the cities of V..-i.tii Canada. Upon the recommendation of the Food Controller ilie manufacture of oleomargarine in Canada and its importation has been authorized as a War Measure only, and under regulations which prol'-ei the dairy Interests from unfair competition and fraudulent, practices. Tin- action was taken because the high cost of butter and the.demand for ii overseas .were making it impossible for ninny people to purchase fats in the quantities which were needed in iliejt- diet. Owing to the embargo on the export of apples to ill-cut Britain, and the shortage of the Ontario crop, the Food Controller, acting through the Fruit, and Vegetable Committee, after careful investigati'mi of the apple situation in Nova Scotia, arranged to supply a traffic officer to assist in the movement of the Xnva Scotia crop to points in. Ontario ami Western Canada. This action has proved to be of very great service in facilitating the movement, and ha- made it possible for the crop to be marketed much more freely than would otherwise have been possible The Fruit and Vegetable Committee has further given lull consideration to the factors ont'eriM; in to the marketing of fruits and eatables. The Committee at an earlv date will make recommendations which it Is believed, will do much towards making impossible purely speculative dealing In these commodities, and will at the same time encourage the legitimate merchant to conduct his business on sound and fair lines. Problems in connection with the distribution of the Canadian potato crop have been given much attention and measures have been considered to ensure consumption' of the iarge supply and to prevent, loss in the spring months from larger stock being carried over than can be used. The Kood Controller has Ts'suen" a survey of the entire potato situation and lias stated that in case there is evidence of hoarding or withholding supplies, he might find It necessary to fix maximum prices, allowing producers and handlers only reasonable prices. Arrangements have been made for the movement in large quantities of Prince Edward Island potatoes during the winter months, for the first time, to Ontario and Quebec. This has been made possible by the new car ferry now operating between Prince Edward Island and the mainland. The fruit and vegetable committee has considered the question of establishing a standard grado of potatoes for Canada. This would undoubtedly assist in establishing the potato business on a sound commercial basis. All wholesale dealers in fruit and vegetables have been required to register at the Office of the Food Controller, and they .will be required to secure licenses to carry on business. Details of the licensing system are being worked out, with the co-operation of the trade, and the plan will be made effective at an early date. All dealers or handlers who do not. conduct their business on a fair basis will have their licenses subject to suspension or cancellation. The legitimate dealers need have no fear of any hardship on account of the licensing system. People's Forum Communications nuclei this heading must, boar tho signatures of tho writers. PICTURE SHOW PRICES 5tli Ave S , I,eihbridgc. February :i7tlt. PUS The Fditor Letbbridgc Herald. Sir, - 1 wonder how long -the l.eth-brldge theatre going public are goiiu-r to stand the extortionate prices now-being charged- by the proprietors of the local moving- picture thea'tres. There Is absolutely nd justification for them raising the price �fi P-'-.i" cent. Lei us try and imagine for a moment thai I) am the proprietor of a grocery sum-In IiOthbrldse.

Mr. i Starland and Mr. Fmpress look rather dumbfounded and at last the latter, ';says rather cantankerously. "Well, i Where's the change." Then I retort '"Change, why there is no change. Aren't you aware that the cost of pro-ductlon of tea has risen enormously and I have been compelled to slap on a 116 per cent. Increase in order to make a living." The least I could :-oc-jPect would be that, they would both Icall me a liar and threaten to have me .arrested and I wouldn't blame them one bit. j Yon will find enclosed a clipping taken from an American paper! dated [February 16tb, advertising moving pic-turesi This paper is published in a j western city, a few hundred miles ifrom Lethbridge, and with a population just a little larger than that of Lethbridge.

Please take note that the prices ;at this theatre are children Gc, adults lflc, both matinees and evenings.

Licensees storing eggs in cold storage which they own or control must keep a proper record of Mich candling. The committee in its report stated that it. had in mind "a fjir-reacliing and tremendously important conservation of food that may readily be accomplished. It. is stated that, the |()7,s from bad eggs in Canada, amounting lo several millions of dollars annually is largely preventable ami thai the imposing of this loss on the parties uiKier whose lack of care it has (level oped would result in such improved methods and care in handling eggs a.-; will, to a very great, extent, do away with the loss. -.hall ol tor- ' ill) again stale the reasons for advancing the prices at. Starland. To begin .with we will classify the piclure busuiei,ii. (�First, there is the manufacturer or producer, then comes the distributor or we .may r�ay wholesaler, and lastly tho exhibitor or retailer. Not. so very much difference between this business and any other. Now it is a well known fact, that the cost, of production in the motion picture industry has advanced by leaps ami bounds thi same n� in any other line. The consequence is that the manufacturer is paying more to produce pictures, is charging the distributor more, the distributor in turn is raising his prices, and when it comes to the exhibitor It. is a ease of {IBE THE STAR WITNESS !N CASE His Lordship.

A Statement From Mr.' Fleming Mr. Fleming, of Starland, makes the following statement regarding increased prices: "In connection with the advanced prices at the picture houses I may say-that so far as I am concerned I advertised the fact in the Herald extensively last. fall, hut in case someone, has not. seen the advertisement. I will WITH THE Y^MtC; A.-iH FRANCE either advancing his prices or closing his doors, fn my own particular case, I. am paying in some instances four times as much for features as I was paying a year ago. I am not playing a-single feature that is not. 100 per cent, higher in cost than a year ago. Carbons have advanced 200 per cent, in the past two years. Machines and machine parts bave advanced 100 per cent, in the same time. Then there is the-matter of wages. Everyone knows' that it is .necessary 'to raise wage's to meet thediigli cost of living. Also there is the climate., to contend with. If the people'-who do the"Inciting would stop to think for a minute of the number of days in the year that..we. lose money on account of the weather they would see that there is a great, element of chance in the picture shown business. 11 stands to reason that when evt'-y-tliiug else is: soaring in price, that the prices must rise, in this business the same as in any other. People are demanding good pictures, not two or. three reels of junk to a, program. It. Is not many years ago since they were glad to pay 15 cents for two reels of stuff that they would not look at. today. People who1 have brains-are tle'-i mauding that they get. something lo loojc.at that is worth'while. Conae-j fluently we are getting a higher stand-..] ard of pictures, are paying more for them, and must charge a higher price.' I will admit. I.hal there are some places .in 'the United States, or were some cities, -where you could see the same programs that I show at. less cost, hut this is accounted for by the fact that they get their programs 100 per cent, cheaper.-This I can prove. Also there are other places wtiore they elnnrgo double what I 'have been charging.

In conclusion L may say-that' if anyone thinks he can play my' fn'o-gram for fifteen cents and not' go bankrupt In a very short time he imisl.i ho. a multi-in'illionaire. 1 am prepared j lo back up my statements with figures on record in my office, and can prove that. I "am making less profit:; since advancing prices, than when I paid less for tilm' service and charged only fifteen cents. I believo that the majority of the people of. Lethbridge, have sufficient intellect to see by these statements that the.rise in prices �was inevitable, and it is not iu Lethbridge alone that they have risen but in every city west of the Great l-'bkes, jand many easterh cities and I'. S. iclties as well." ' her husband at. hfs trial. - After getting out. of Mip hospital Howard went to Vancouver.
