"Winnipeg, Sept. 25 > FOOD REGULATIONS > * 4 v- > * :�* o o 4 Miss Ponton, of the Provincial Food Control Board, who has been.in tho city for the last two days in connection with the food laws, has some interesting things to tell in connection with food regulations. She has great praise for the way people are making every effort to help and do their share in food conservation, and has a great I deal of practical advice to offer, whicL'jlawB read, is of great benefit. While the public eating places are under strict regulations, many, though not all, of the regulations with regard to private homes are left to the honor of the householder, states Miss Ponton, and this method is productive of very good results, the matter of enforcement of laws in private households being a, very difficult question. Those #who advocate, the firing of prices on all things must remember the extreme difficulty attached to this while those who are in the habit of complaining of tbe constant changes in the regulations must remember that conditions vary and with this frequent change must come regulations to comply with them. Also until these have been tried their success or failure is not ascertained. There are many points in regard to food regulations that have not been clearly understood by many, which Miss Ponton b*�. explained. In the first place it nv?>i jkf Known that waste is illegal and that it is the duty of each municipajity to enforce regulations with regard to it. Some of the "orders" are punishable by a fine, others have no penalty attached, but the householder is asked to conform to Lhem. There has been some confusion regarding the serving of food between meals, and the serving of sandwiches at midday by. organizations. Regarding the former, the ruling is to the effect that in private households (less than 15 persons) if food must be served, then serve substitutes for wheat-flour. Regarding the latter the food At the mid-day meal no sandwiches 'shall be served......and not more than a total of one ounce of standard wheat flour shall be served to any person in all products including bread, buns, biscuits, pastries and other like products." Sugar The orders regarding sugar are I very strict owing to the undoubted shortage. Order 30-1 reads, "No person shall hold or have in his possession, or under his control at any one time, cane sugar more than is Buffl-cient for his ordinary requirements for a period not exceeding fifteen days" (exceptions follow). The allowance for 15 days being 1 pound per person,'or 2 pounds per month; it can easi'l/'ije figured how much sugar can be'laSyfully bought. Regarding iclngs^'tjje1' order treads, "No person shall make in Canada for private consumption, fresh pastries, iced, cakes or biscuits or cakes with icing of cane sugar betwe ..> ? : >> ; > > : the exterior; and no person shall use in Canada cane sugar for making for private consumption, what is commonly called candy." - That is, it is prohibited to make icings or fillings for cakes, or to make candy, from either white or brown sugar. The householder is expected to make his allowance do for mealB. using- substitutes of corn, syrup, honey, etc., in the cooking, though extra sugar is allowed for preserving. A violation of the order regarding isings and candy is liable to a fine. Flour Most people are familiar, with the fact that they must buy substitutes with their flour, and the fact-that "No person shall hold or havo in his possession ......flour made wholly or in pare, from wheat more than is sufft-, cient for"hi3 'ordinary requirements for a period not exceeding fifteen days" (with certain exceptions), but does everyone know that the substitutes that may be bought are of great variety? "Wholesome corn, oat, barley, rice, rye, buckwheat, tapioca, or potato flour; bran, shorts, oatmeal, rolled oats, corn meal, cornstarch, hominy, corn grits, rye meal, rice>, tapioca or any mixture of same, and potatoes. In using potatoes 4 pounds of same shall be equivalent to 1 pound of other substitutes" Another - phase of this question is that not only must the substitutes be purchased but in baking for home consumption, 1 pound of substitutes must be used with every 9 pounds of white or standard wheat flour. Milk There is the milk question , too, which: is Ithe cause of much agltaitlon. According to Miss Ponton this difficult question must be dealt with locally. Order 9, 2, states "That no retail dealer shall charge'a higher price for milk than the price the milk distributors charge the consumers in the locality in which such retail dealer is carrying on; business," and "that if the I cost of distribution is increased...... any distributor may submit evidence of such increase to the Food Controller and ask that the maximum amount ......be increased." -Thus it 1b left to the Iqcil municpjality to make an investigation should they consider the prices not justifiably, advanced. The educational campaign which is being taken up by. the ladies of the city on food questions promises to be most Interesting and of great educational! value. ---i.kiB.
