ROGER WILLIAMS' PRESIDENT
PETITIONED TO REMAIN.
Dr. A. M. Townsend, the. successful
president of Roger Williams Univer
sity, who announced some few days
ago his intention to resign, has con
tinuously received appeals, petitions
and personal visits of white and col
ored friends asking him to recon
sider and retain the position as presi
dent of the school which has had its
most successful work .during the five
glorious years of his administration.
The institution has made wonderful
progress during hUj administration,
so much so until now it ranks with
any school in the south in point ot
real Christian education.
Whon President Townsend took
charge of affairs there were - two
buildings only partially equipped, a
small student body and a few teach
ers, with the institution in the midst
of a great debt. In fact, things look
ed mighty bad for the future of the
school. Dr. Townsend came and i l
five years, he has not only given new
life to the institution, but out of a
ripen rntiRciniiKHPss of its most 111'
gent needs, out of a love evidenced
by personal sacrifice, out ot a rertne
mind new blood has been put into
an old Institution whose sun was go
ing down, though It was day. This
Institution has been rocked by" him
in the cradle of consistent toil and
close attention, uitil today she Is
about out of debt and running
smoothly. Dr.- Townsend's work has
been phenomenal. A revised course
of study, the most efficient teachers,
new departments, increased student
body, a great printing plant, new
light and . water system, the most
modern facilities and the appearance
of six beautiful buildings are only a
port of his splendid work.
The organization of the now
world's famous Roger Williams Sing
ers under the direction of Mrs. A.
M. Townsend, organized by her, is
one of the added features of the
school. These singers have been all
over the country and critics hive
pronounced them the greatest living
exponents of Negro jubilee music.
They recently returned from Atlantic
City, N. J., where they charmed a
convention of seven thousand white
people and were begged to return
to the next session at Denver, Colo.
Certainly we all -pray that the real
leader will remain as president ot
Roger Williams University talented,
kind, considerate, scholarly, a con
structive worker, a master in finan
cial straits, jovial, consecrated, a
Christian young man and best of all
honest: To permit this .man to leave
a school that so much needs ' his
services is 'a mighty big mistake for
the people of the state to make. Far
better would it be to lessen his bur,
den, show him you appreciate his
services than to allow him to leave
the school. Few men could be found
who could and would make the sac
rifice and fill his place. His remain
ing seems to depend upn what
means are secured ta relieve him ot
so great a financial burden.
FOOD CONSERVATION NOTES.
The Food Administration makes the
Washington, March 23, 1918.
, If we are to furnish the allies with
the necessary proportion of wheat to
miaintain their war bread from now
until the next harvest and this is a
military necessity we must reduce
our monthly consumption to 21,000,000
bushels a month as against our normal
consumption of about 42,000,000,. bush
els, or 50 per cent of our normal con
sumption. Reserving a margin for dis
tribution to the Army and for special
cases leaves for general consumption
approximately one and one-hair
pounds of wheat products weekly per
person. Many of our consumers are
dependent oinon bakers bread. Such
bread must he duraible, and therefore'
requires a larger proportioned wheat
products than cereal ibreads baked In
the household. Our Army and Navy
requires a full allowance. The well-
to-do in our population, can make
greater sacrifices frn the consumption
of wheat products than can the poor.
In addition, our population In the ag
rtclttval -dlstrlctia where the other
cereals are abundant, are more skill
ed In the preparation of breads fromj
these other cereals than tne crowa
ed city and Industrial populations.
With Unproved transportation con
ditions we rw have available a sur
plus of potatoes. We also have In the
spring months a Burplusf mdlk, and
we have ample corn and oats for
human consumption. The drain on
rye and barley as substitutes has al
ready greatly exhausted the supply
of these grains.
To effect the need saving of wheat
we are wholly dependent uporj the vol
untary assistance of the American
people and we ask that' the following
rules shall be observed:
1. Householders to use not to ex
ceed! a total of one and' one-half
pounds per week of .wheat products
per person. This means not more
than one and threefourths pounds ot
ictory bread containing the required
percentage of substitutes and one-half
pound of cooking flour, macaroni,
crackers, pastry, pies, cakes, wheat
breakfast cereals all combined.
. 2. Public eating places and clubs
to observe two wheatless days per
weekMonday and Wednesday, as at
present In additon thereto not tq
serve to any one piept at any on
meal an aggregate of breadatuffs.1
macaroni, crackers, pastry, .pies'
cakfWi wheat breakfast cereals con
talnlug a total of wore thaa 2 ounces
ot wheat flour. No wheat products-
to do served unless speuiauy oraereo.
Tii.Ho Antlncr oatnhliahmpL4 Tint iV
buy more than 6 pounds of wheat pro
ducts per month per guest, thus con- ,
forming with the limitations request
ed of the householder.
' 3. Retailers to cell not more than
one-eighth of a barrel of flour to any
town customer at any one time and
not more than one-quarter ot a barrel
to any country customer at any one-
; li,i o
and In no case to sell wneat
i lour muiuiis yiioi
5. Manufacturers using wheat pro
ducts for nonfood purposes should
cease such use entirely.
6. There is no limit upon the use
of other cereals, flours, and meals, .
corn, barley, buckwheat, potato flour, (
Many thousand families throughout
the land are now using no wheat pro
ducts whatever, except a very small
amount for cooking purposes, and are
doing so In perfect health and satis
faction. There is no reason why all
of the American people who are able
to cook in their own households can
not subsist perfectly well with the
use of less wheat products than one
and one-half pounds a week, and -we
specially ask the well-to-do house
holds in the country to follow this
additional program in order that ve
may provide the necessary marginal
supplies for those parts of the com
munity less able to adapt themselvea .
to eo large a proportion of substi
tutes. In order that we shall 6e able to
make the wheat exports that are ab
solutely demanded of us to maintain)
the civil population and soldiers of
the allies and our own Army we pro
pose to supplement the Voluntary co
operation of the publio by a further
limitation of distribution,- and we
shall place at once restrictions on'
'distribution, which will be adjusted
fronfc time to time to secure as near
ly an equitable distribution as possi
ble. With the arrival o harvest we
should be nblo to relax such restrjc
tions: until then wo ask for the nec
essary patience, sacrifice, and co
operation bt the distributing trades.-
