AVERTED EUROPEAN DESPAIR
Wth Military Demands Upon Ocear
Shipping Relieved, World Is Able
to Return to Normal White
Since the advent of the latest wheal
crop the only limitation upon Ameri
can exports to Europe has been the
shortage of shipping. Between July 1
and October 10 we shipped 65,980,30,
bushels. If this rate should continue
until the end of the fiscal year we wil
have furnished the Allies with more
than 237,500,000 bushels of wheat and
flour In terms at wheat.
The result of increased productiou
and conservation elofrts in the Unite<
States has been that with the cessa
tion of hostilities we are able to re
turn to a normal wheat diet. Supplies
that have accumulated In Australia
Argentine and other hitherto inacces
sible markets may be tapped by shipi
released from transport service, an<
European demand for American whea
probably will not exceed our norma
surplus. There is wheat enough avail
able to have a white loaf at the com
But last year the tale was different
Only by the greatest possible saving
and sacrifice were we able to keep 1
steady stream of wheat and flour mov
ing across the sea. We found our
selves at the beginning of the harves
year with' an unusually short crop
Even the most optimistic statisticiam
figured that we had a bare surplus o:
20,000,000 bushels. And yet Europe
was facing the probability of a bread
famine-and in Europe bread is by far
the most important article in the diet.
All of this surplus had left the
country early In the fall. By the firs
of the year we had managed to ship a
little more than 50,000,000 bushels by
practicing the utmost economy a
home-by wheatless days, wheatles
meals, heavy substitution of othei
cereals and by sacrifice at almos
every meal throughout the country.
In January the late Lord Rhondda
then British Food Controller, cabled
that only If we sent an additional 75,
000,000 bushels before July 1 could he
take the responsibility of assuring hiF
people that they would be fed.
The response of the American peo
pie was S5,000,000 bushels safely deliv
cred ox crseas between January 1 an<
July 1. Out of a harvest which gave
us only 2).000,000 bushels surplus w<
actually shipped 141,000.000 bushels.
Thus did America fulfill her pledg
that the Allied..bread rations could bE

critical year of the war.
