A FOOD MESSAGE TO THE
CHILDREN OF AMERICA
By Alice Wagenhelm, Vasaar College.
We're all trying to help win the
war, aren't we? Each of us In our
own way, of course, for we can't all
be soldiers and sailors, however much
we'd like to!
But are you sure you know what
your way Is?
That's why this message comes to
you now because perhaps you don't
know about the big way there really
is for you to help!
About things to Eat and the War
You've heard people talking about
saving food, haven't you? But do you
really know why? Here It is a real

Somebody that knew once said that
our country was the greatest food
store, butcher shop and grain ware
house In the world. Most of the other
countries especially those in Europe
though they grew big crops every
year, never had quite enough to feed
all their people, and so they came to
us for the rest. We sent them wheat
for bread, and meat and sugar and
butter and oil.
Then came the war. The European
countries hadn't enough and then to
make it worse, the farmers, all went
off the 'land to fight, and the big farm
machines weren't used for farming any
more, and the trains were filled with
soldiers so that there was no room
to carry grain. The countries of
course stopped trading with each
other, and when they tried to send
over to us, and to India and South
America, for more food, there wasn't
enough ships that they could get hold
of, and a great many of them were
sunk by German submarines besides.
The United States had most of the
food and was nearest. So they sent
what ships they had to us. We prom
ised to keep the ships moving with
food for them.
Then we went to war too! The
Allies were depending on us for food
more all the time. Our own soldiers
were going over. We couldn't very
well let the Allies and our soldiers
fight for us over there without enough
to eat, could we? while we stayed
at home and had enough.
Of course we couldn't! We prom
ised to send to Europe every -grain of
wheat we could save, and lots of
meat and sugar and butter and cheese
and condensed milk more. than ever
before. And we did It, too we are
doing it ' now. Not as well as. we
should be, perhaps we have to eat
much less of some things like bread
and sugar than we would have if we'd
been a bit more careful nl the begin
nine. " But that must have been be
fore we all understood.
With all this new need, there isn't
any more' bread or butter or sugar or
meat in the country than there ever
was. Somebody had to arrange now
we were going to divide that food
and to see that it was done. Last
year President Wilson appointed Mr,
Hoover to do this and his department
which controls our food in war time is
called the Food Administration, and
abranch in every city and county in
About Bread and the Things Made of
Wheat is so important on account
of the bread and other things made
from it that some people have said
that the war will be won by the side
that has plenty of wheat. The Allies
have not nearly as much as they need.
Their crops have not been as good
as they used to be, because the men
are fighting, instead of cultivating the
farms, and it is harder than ever to
get wheat from the outside.
So we have promised all the wheat
that we can spare to the Allies and
they need it a great deal more than we
do. And of course to keep our promise
we must eat much less wheat bread
than we used to. That doesn't mean
we can't have all the bread that we
need. We can have plenty if we like,
But part of it must be bread made
from other grains than wheat, that is
all it can be corn bread or rye bread
or lots ot other kinds. You ve no
idea 'till you try how many good kinds
ot bread that there are.
And in some countries of . Europe
they don't know about all the other
kinds of grains, or else they can't get
them, and so no wheat bread means
no bread to them. Isn't that all .the
more reason that you, who like corn
bread and lots of other kinds, and can
get them, should eat them all you can?
And don't you want to send your wheat
flour to the poor, little boys and girls
of France and Belgium.?
About Sugar and Sweet Things
There are two ways of getting sugar
from sugar beets or from sugar
cane. The beet sugar used to come
mostly from the great plains of Eur
ope, but now most of the beet fields
there are in our enemy's hands. Cane
sugar comes from the tropics much
of it from the far awaw islands of
Java and Cuba. Cuba is where most
ot our sugar comes from; but now
that our allies cannot get as much as
they need, we are sending part of this
supply to them. So you sen we must
be very careful about Hiignr too, for
there Is not nearly enough for all, if
wo URe it the way we used to. In
France today every person can have
only a quarter of what we each ate
before the war. Cutting down a little
shouldn't bo very hard on us do you
Meat Is scarce in Europe, because
so many cattle have had to be killed
and so many of them have been stolen
by the Germans and because it is
so hard to send them from 'the far
away countries that have enough.
Here again our country must come
to the rescue. Already the "meat
ration" ot the Allies is being made
smaller. If we want them to have
enough we must Bee that we use less
ourselves. 'And if they won't have to
eat their own cows there will be much
more milk for the children. Growing
children must have milk, you know,
to keep them well.
How You Can Help s
You can begin to help just by re
membering for whom it is you are"
giving things up, when you don't eat
quite as much white bread as you'd
like to or a bag of candy. It's for
tho sodicrs who are fighting for us
over there in France, and for the
Allies, who are fighting for us over
there in France, and for the Allies
who are fighting with them, and for
the little hungry children and their
mothers, who are in the countries
where the war is, of course; remem
bering alono won't do it, but remem
boring such things is sure to remind
you how little that slice of bread or
piece of candy really means to you,
and how very much to thyem.
You can do these things, all you
children. And surely it won't be very
hard, if you think of the soldiers, and
the thin little children of France and
Belgium. Best of all you'll be play
ing your part in winning the war
and it can be a big part too.

The correct test
Until recently many purchasers considered the gravity
test the only proper measure of gasoline value.
Then the National Bureau of Standards atWashington
pointed out that this test tells nothing of the power
value of gasoline.
It further showed that the real test of gasoline lies in
its vaporizing and combustive qualities, which can only
be measured by its boiling points.
Boiling points are vaporizing points. They determine
the action of the gas developed from gasoline.
As combustion starts with the lowest boiling points and
flashes on through the gas, the continuous, uniform
chain of boiling points from the low to the highis
necessary for instantaneous, full-powered combustion.,
Eliminate one link and the power chain is broken.
Only straight-distilled gasoline can have the continu
ous, uniform chain of boiling points. Mixtures always
have "holes" in them.
Red Crown is a straight-distilled, all-refinery gasoline,
having the full and continuous chain of boiling points
necessary for steady, dependable power: Low boiling
points for easy starting, medium boiling points for
quick and smooth acceleration, and high boiling points
for power and mileage. Look for the Red Crown sign
