Danger of Food
Universal war bread of better qual
ity than last year for all the nations
fighting Germany, practically without
rationing, will be one of the results of
the food controller's' conference at
London. Herbert (J. Hoover says
there will be ample supplies of fats
and moats If the populations are econ
omical and avoid waste.
"The danger of privation is now
passed," said Mr. Hoover.
PROGRAM AGREED UPON
He said a program had been agreed
upon regarding different commodities
required to maintain health and com
fort. He appealed to the United
States for continued economy to meet
the increased demands of Europe and
carry over a stock of foodstuffs that
, will form positive insurance against
climatic eventualities. The text of
Mr. Hoover's statement follows:
T"I am well satisfied with results
from the conferences of food control
lers. These conferences were called
at my request with a view to the for
mulation of nr.Hi 'Ina find n tii'.n.t.itii
ith regard to the entire Imnnrt. nf
food supplies to the countries at war
with Germany. An agreement has
been reached as to policies which will
ffect a greater measure of coordina
tlon In the purchase and transport
ation of supplies during the coming
year and their equitable distribution
between all the countries; and a pro
gram has been agreed upon as to the
different commodities that are reuuir-
ed not only to maintain the health
but the comfort of the armies and
EFFECT SAVING IN TONAGE
"The people of North America are
this year able to take upon their
ihoulders the movement of the ereat
bulk of food supplies required, and it
ill therefore be possible to curtail
the total length of voyage necessary
to bring these supplies to the Europ
ean allies, ehus effecting, a consider

FOOD COUNCIL IN CONTINUOUS
"Arrangements have been made by
the .four food controllers not on'.y to
cover these matters of policy, but .iIho
I to provide for the erecting of machi
I nery for cont'.nual supervision of the
1 necessary operations. The food cotin
i cil, which is a body that has just been
; created, will be maintained In con
! tinuous session by means of having
representatives of each government
with their headquarters In London.
"With the consumation of the work
initiated at this conference there will
be n universal w.ir bread of better
(i!ilily than last year fur all those
light in:: (iermany. mid this bread ;
practically without rationing. There!
will be ample supplies of fats and
meats if our populations are economi
cal and avoid waste. We will be able
to build up some stocks of cereals
against the next harvesa, and we
shall save tonnage over last year by
the shorter voyage upon which food
ships must be sent.
"The coal miners of Europe are
now at the front; consequently this
next winter will be a period of great
suffering in Europe through a short
age of coal. If the people can have
liberal supplies of breads, meats, and
fats there can be no fear of the morale
unions the .civil populations of the
European allies. The promise of this
has lifted a load of fear off the minds
of the people on this side, particu
larly in France and Italy. It now
remains for our people to make good,
and as usual, we have the resources
to do it."

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place, and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly,
Scarce heard amidst the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were foved, and now we lie
In rlanders fields.
Take up om quarrel wilh the foe,
To you from falling hands we throw
The torch be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep tho poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
