Ohio Man Gives Facts Regarding
Supplies Used in Production
From data at hand the coal con
sumed by brewers in Ohio in the
year 1917 was ?00,000 tons. There
were 4,S3S,710 barrels of beer
brewed. If it be conceded that beer
is not a necessity, then this vast
amount of coal was uselessly con
The office of the fuel administra
tor of Ohio reports that it took a
pound of coal to brew every pint of
beer in HUT. This means 1,200,000,
000 pints of beer, and at the average
retail price of eight cents a pint
paid by the consumer would mean
. 896,000,000 paid out in 1 !? 17 fora
virtually useless, beverage in Ohio
In addition to the enormous quan
tity of coal consumed in this useless
luxury, we must take into considera
tion that its effect upon the coa;
miner.-?'efficiency greatly decreases
production in the mines. Then we
may add the decrease in transporta
tion facilities because of the space
required to carry the product and
We find from the latest report on
food conservation from Germany
that no beer can be brewed any
where in the empire after April 1,
19IS, for and during the period of
the war. i-iermany brewed 1,000,000
barrels of beer last year, while our
own United States brewed 00.817,
379 barrels-more than sixty times
as much-yet Germany must regard
it as an unnecessary, a detriment, a
destroyer of efficiency, and Germa
ny brought the brewery to America.
Everj' breweiy ia America came
from Germany (hardly an excep

The great amount of grain brew
ed into beer that could be used for
food is startling. The amount of
foodstuffs used to make beer in the
United States last year would make
more than 11,000,000 ordinary-sized
loaves of bread every day of the
year. There is no argument but that
the "staff of life" is a necessity;
neither is there any but.that beer is
not a necessity. Therefore, who
would not uphold the president
should he issue an edict against the
brewing of beer during the period
of the war?-Jesse E. LaDow in

H. E. Bunch,
Every interest of the Nation and
of the world demands the closing
of every saloon and the total prohi
bition of the manufacture of alco
holic drinks during the war. The
liquor interests have protested in
times past that prohibition would
throw out of employment many
thousands of workers. To-day the
country needs millions of hands,
and every man who is now oper
ating in breweries or etanding be
hind the saloon bar could be turned
into employment of benefit rather
than be kept in an employment
which is a curse.-Union Signal.
KD TO PLANT
ls Practically a Sure Crop And
Especially Attractive Owing,
iu- To Labor Shortage.
Columbia, S. C.-There never has
been any doubt as to the raising of
sweet potatoes in South Carolina. It
is practically a sure crop and in view
of the labor situation it is one of the
very best crops that can be planted.
Every sweet potato that ls grown in
this State is growing to help in the
food fight to win the war. In addition,
potatoes in the present market con
ditions are a wonderfully profitable
At the request of the Chairman of
the food production campaign in this
State, Prof. George P. Hoffman has
prepared a series of articles in con
nection with the planting and gather
ing of seed potat es, and will be pub
lished from time to time. The imme
diate urgency is in securing seed^tock
for the satisfactory planting. The real
shortage of seed potatoes is perhaps
not realized, and those interested in
the planting of seed potatoes should
at once arrange to get their seed.
Professor Hoffman has this to say:
"With an increase of nearly three
times the normal selling price* com
bined with a wanton loss of more than
75 per cent of South Carolna's sweet
potato crop of the past season, it is
obvious that the necessary seed for
planting this year's crop will be far
insufficient. Therefore, it is impera
tive that plant dealers and planters
make immediate provision for sup
plying their needs. Disease-free seed
should be bedded as soon as possible.
This shortage may be supplemented
by a large per cent through early
plantings of small areas from which
later plantings may be made by use
of vine cuttings.
"The Nancy Hall and Porto Rico are
the leading and most popular varieties
In this State, but these varieties not i
being available, no time should be
lost in obtaining disease-free seed or
plants of other varieties. Every ef
fort should be made for thc planting
of a sufficient area to supply home
consumption with a surplus for the ,
"The planters of South Carolina
have been asked to increase by 60 per
cent the crop of last year, which was

acres. This necessary increase may

Jhe Value Of The Dollar.
The importance of raising food
stuffs at home can not perhaps be
better accentuated than by quoting
figures prepared oy Mr. Arthur L. Lee
for the New York Times. The dollar
on the day the war broke out as com
pared with the dollar of today in pur
chasing capacity shows just a little
more than fifty-six per cent of its
value at that time. ThiB means that
the dollar the farmer derives from
his crop buys for him just fifty-six
cents worth of corn, bacon, flour or
food-stuffs as compared with the same
dollar that he would have had in 1914.
Aside from the patriotic duty of
helping to raise food crops at home,
from a purely selfish standpoint the
man who can raise food-stuffs at home
ought to realize that his dollar has a
purchasing capacity today of only
fifty-six cents as compared with the
same dollar of 1914. Mr. Lee in his
article gives these graphic diagrams
Indicating the reduced value of the
dollar. This applies as fully to every
thing that is bought as it does to food
The diagrams of the dollar's real
purchasing capacity are presented by
the Food Conservator as he is con
vinced they stress an important phase
of the campaign for more food.
SUGGESTION ON GARDEN
The Chairman of Food Conserva
tion, at Columbia, S. C., will be
pleased to stud any one interested
articles and suggestions on garden
planting, the raising of chickens
or the best way to handle the
