the deer season which will close at

been tabulated. They show that in
100 hotels and restaurants diverse as

On this basis the saving for the whole

wheat, the figures showed a saving of
316,960 pounds. While these figures
are merely estimates, in the opinion of
the state food authorities, they are
more than fairly accurate. The hotels
and restaurants tabulated were of such
a diversified character as to indicate
that all would follow about the same
ratio in the end.
