"Bar the Barley from the Bar,
and Bake it into Bread."
The above is a new slogan of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Un
ion. Mr. Hoover says', "The re- dis
covery of barley as a food comes as
a veritable God-send. The food val
ue of high grade barley is similar to
that of wheat."
"The members of the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union are
prosecuting a campaign for the en
listment of every patriotic appetite
to help win the war. This is the pur
pose of the 'barley drive,' now in full
swing-to enlist every man, woman
and child to use barley in food in
every conceivable way as a substitute
for wheat, to create such a barley
appetite the country over that every
grain of barley grown will be need
ed to satisfy the healthful desire
and not one kernel be left to be made
into beer to gratify the abnormal
craving of the drinker?, of the land."
Mrs. Ella A. Boole, president of
the New York State W. C. T. U. was
present and spoke when the national
prohibition amendment was being
considered in the New York legisla
ture. One of the beer advocates, in
his speech said that the talk about
the grain used by the brewers being
of use as food was ridiculous, and
was unheard of. Mrs. Boole, in her
reply, said she used barley bread
and cakes in her home every day,
and asked the brewer if he had ever
read that incident in the scriptures ?
of the time when the saviour took 1
the five barley loaves and two small
fishes and fed the multitudes men- j
tioned in John's Gospel.
Mrs. Boole, who has made a speci- j
alty of barley recipes, says, "If from
25 to 50 per cent of barley is used
in connection with every recipe call
ing for wheat flour, and all barley
substituted for wheat in recipes call
ing for corn meal with a mixture of i
wheat, we will be saving a commod
ity that is much needed right now. I
A scriptural slogan that is prophet j
kally significant just at this time
was sent by a Jewish friend. It is
found in Judges 7: 13-14. "Be
hold, I dreamed, and lo, a cake of
barley bread tumbled into the camp,
and .note it that it fell_this is
nothing less than the sword of Gid
eon_into his hands God hath de
livered Midian and all his hosts."
The multitude of barley loaves
being baked in our kitchens may
prove to be the undoing of those who
waste barley in the manufacture of
The food administrator has issued j
a stirring call for wheat conservation
and the wheat consumption is to be
cut down one half. To accomplish
this many Americans will eliminate
wheat entirely from their tables.
Many organizations of women are
taking the lead in this,- our state fed
eration in Aiken having lead the way.
Barley is a good substitute and can
be legitimately used.
Approximatif' two billion, nine
hundred million pounds of barley
are wasted each year in the manu- '
facture of beer "Bake the barley in-1
to bread, biscuits, cakes, pies and bar
it from the brewery and the bar."
Let us make the . demand great so
that our government and the brewers
will begin to recognize the great val
ue of barley as a food and speedily
remove the temptation of beer from
our citizens, both men and women,
boys and girls.
