HEART Of AN ARMY
8[N AT ITS BASE

is the brain of the army from which
all orders emanate, so "The Base" is
'im a very large measure the heart
whence the blood circulates to the re
motest parts of the body.
A visit to a base showvs that it is
something far bigger and more com
p~rehensive than a camp; it is a dlis
trict. Its center is a town of size and
importance; a town whtose church
spires and towers rendler it visible
from a long dlistance, while its rail
ways andI street car lines present a
busy scene (luring all hours of the (lay
andl night. There is a large civilian
population, carrying on business as
usual, though air raids are frequemi
and, demol ished houses are constant
reminders of ever-present dlanger. The
Town Hall has been badly damaged,
andl a shothole from a long-range
naval gun can be seen in the towver.
All Nations rn Plaza
In the streets of the town people of
all five Continents jostle each other.
TIhere are the French, civilian and
military; there are British troops of
iall ranks and dlescriptions, even the
khaki-clad wvomen of the auxiliary
army corps; there are Australians,
Canadians, Americans, Belgians, Chi
nese, East Indlians and African ne
groes. The latter make excellent
transport drivers, while the Chinese

mailar. Tlheir camp is some distance
from the towvn, and their nearest
neighbors are the Inhabitants of a

can be see'n daily at work ihi a leisure

Guns Parked Everywhere
In the towni itself can be seen guns
by the hundred, packed as clos. as
they cnn possibly be packedl. Outside
the town are other parks of artillery
andl wagons and (lumps of munitions
and engineering materials.
There are camps everywhere, sonme

ASKS FARMERS TO SOW
417,000,000 ACRtES WH EAT
Washington, .July 21.--The Depart -
meat of Agriculture, it wvas an
nouncedl todayi, has askedl farmers to
sow 47,500,000 acres in winter wheat
this fall. This woukl yield :approxi
mately (367,000,000 bushels-the
greatest winter wheat crop in history.
While the reqluest specifically men
tions 45,000,000 acres as the area to
be sown, it asks farmers if they can
not raise the total to 47,500,000 acres.
The latter acreage would be a 12'
per cent inerease ov'er last year andl
wouldl provide abundantly for the
needs of the alliedl nations.
.When harvest time rolls around it
will be known as the "Libert~y Wheat
HaIrvest," accordling to the plan of the
department. Officials also plan corre
sponding increases in the p)rodluction(
of spring wvheat andl livestock. The
last crop report forecast a 1918 har
best of 890,930,000 bushels of winter
and spring wehat. If weather condli-r
lions next year are favorable the 1919 i
harvest of winter and spring wheat
will be well over the billion mark ini
F~rom the 45,000,000 acreage, how
ever, a total of 6316,000,000 bushels
would be .raised,. on the basis of an
average yieldl of 15.7 bushels per acre
and an abandonment of 10 per cent of'
the area sowvn on account of winter
