Three slices of bread for a meal is
too much for an individual, accord-
ing to food regulations issued by the
food administration.
Local boarding-house keepers agreed
to carry out the orders of the admin-
istration, last Tuesday, by consuming
not more than six pounds of wheat for
every 90 meals. This allows a little
over one ounce to the individual for
a meal. The averag'e loat of bread
weighs about 16 ounces, making al-
most nine ounces of pure wheat to
every loaf. Since there are approx-
imately 12 slices of bread to the loaf,
three slices would be contrary to the
"The wheat situation in Ann Arbor
is becoming more acute," said Fred
Heusel, assistant food administrator
of Washtenaw county yesterday. In
the last three or four days, from ob-
servations throughout the county, I
have been feeling more pessimistic
than ever. If the situatli ! ."t
county is to be taken as a criterian for
the rest of the country, I would say
that we are very near a wheat fam-
An investigation has been made by
the local food administration to de-
termine the supply of wheat on the
farnis of Washtenaw county, with the
result that "half the stories we hear
about the large wheat supplies on
farms is all talk." One farmer was re-
ported to have in his possession a
three years' supply of wheat, but after
a careful observation, it was discover-
ed that he had only 30 bushels, scarce-
ly enough for seed and. bread for his
own use. Another man was said to
have 2,000 bushels, but only 400 bush-
els were found.
Most of the county has been investi-
gated, and practically nothing was
found. Several thousand bushels of
wheat will, however, be placed on the
market within a very short time, but
this is said to be a comparatively
small amount. This supply has not
accumulated through hoarding on the
part of the farmers, officials says, but
merely because the farmers have been
too busy to dispose of it.
The food administration has ordered
that there be one wheatless meal on
Friday, and people are urged to "Eat
graham, rye, corn, and whole wheat
bread in large quantities." The pur-
pose of this is to preserve the spring
wheat, as it is not certain whether
this year's crop will be successful. The
wheat crop in most of the county does
not appear very favorable, said Mr.
Hensel, and much hope has been based
on a big spring crop. Certain sec-
tions of Augusta county contain good
crops, but this is only a small por-
tion of the county, and will not go very
far in relieveing a future famine.
