FOOD PLEDGE WEEK
This week of October 28--November 4, has been set aside by Mr.' Hoover, the United States Food Administrator, to be ob
served in the interests of Food Conservation. There will be an effort throughout the country to secure signatures for the Focd Pledge
Cards, and to bring before the public the importance of saving food. Churches, schools, and many other organizations will observe
.the week. 1
Food will decide the war, and every American can do a real, patriotic service by protecting the food-supply of the Nation.
There is a shortage of supplies in the world's market, and unless this shortage is diminished by the individual effort and volunteer
sacrifice of all the people of America, the war will be prolonged and thousands of lives, not only of men, but also of women and
children will be needlessjy lost. "
Do your bit and get behind Hoover during the week by signing his Food Pledge Card, if you have not already done so. Cards
will be distributed- during the week by the Women's Committee. A copy appears on editorial page. If not supplied with another, cut
this out, sign it, and send it in to the Women's Sub-committee on Food Conservation, Lihue. Then put your economies into practice
and stick by them.
