SUNDAY MORNING MISSOUMAN. NOVEMBER 25, 1917
But, Says Dean Mumford,
Enemy Can Maintain
Mh Flour for Year.
U. S. TO SEND SHARE
Tn Export 100 Million
Bushels, Only if Individ

The Allies need 'wheat more than
any other food," declared Food Ad
ministrator F. B. Mumford yesterday.
-How to get fats is the great problem
of the Central Powers, although they,
too want wheat. They can maintain
their present rations of flour another
year, however, thanks to conquered
wheat- lands and a heavier crop at
home than usual. Their potato yield
is good, although not as much as was
Dean Mumford gae a summary of
the world's food situation: Russia's
wheat crop is only 75 per cent of nor
mal. Disorganized transportation has
further aggravated food troubles
there. Moscow, Petrograd and other
large cities are suffering for bread
because the wheat in the provinces
cannot be moved to them. Bread riots
have broken out.
France raised but 35 per cent of the
usual wheat crop because of the large
area of wheat land in German pos
session and shortage of man-power.
The United States is sending tractors
to remedy this.
Italy's wheat hart est is 12 per cent
short. The Italian food administration
has required millers to make 95
pound of flour from 100 of wheat. This
composition was almost inedible and
caused illness, with the result that
the people forced the food administra
tion to resign. A more liberal pro
portion of flour is 'allowed in the new
rations. America Is alleviating the
scarcity of flour In Italy by shipping
over cornmeal, the Italians being the
only Europeans accustomed to eat
England is better off in food sup
plies than she was during last year.'
The wheat yield of India as normal,!
which means that sixty or seventy
million bushels of wheat can be ex
ported from there. Australia has a
surplus of two hundred and fifty mil
lion bushels. One hundred million
bushels or more will be shipped to
the Allies from Canada.
Governmental computation place
the amount of wheat needed by the
Allies in Europe at five hundred
million bushels and the part that the
United States should furnish to meet
her proportion, at one hundred mil
lion bushels more than our normal ex
portation. Only way for America to
satisfy this demand, Food Administra
tor Mumford says, is to decrease our
consumption of wheat. "If each
American," he said, "decreases his
amount of flour one pound a week, it
will be possible for us to export one
hundred" and twenty-five million
bushels of wheat more than we norm
ally do. This is why the Food Ad
ministration stresses individual sav
ing. Although the individual may
31 consider his saving trivial, yet it is
the multiplication of these savings by
one hundred million, the numDer or
our population, which will put us in,
position to win the war."
The Allied shipping resources. Dean
Mumford says are gaining and will be
greater with the progress of the war.
F. w. Fischer wishes to announce to
the bread consumers ot Columbia that
he will place his bread on sale Mon-'
day at tie groceries asking for It We
will hate rye, whole-wheat, graham, j
Boston brown, a wheatless product In
the near future we expect to have our
f retail store at the present Gillaspie
Drug store location. Our bread is
baked in accordance with the Hoover
Licensed Bread law and in a few days
will include war bread. F-Gltf
IT'S A PENNY FOR THIS
AND A CENT FOR THAT
It's a penny for this and a penny for
that since the war tax went into effect
November 15. Two extra cents have
been added to the price of the one
time 15-cent movie ticket, and instead
of paying 2 cents for a red postage
stamp you must now pay three for a
The old 5-cent cut or tobacco has al
so risen a cent in price. So if you are
a man and so unfortunate as to smoke
and chew both, you are rather hard
hit, a down-town clerk put it If you
are a girl and not a Hooverite, more
pennies go for odd prices on candy,
caused, .not by the war tax, but by the
general rise in prices noticed also in
restaurants and at news stands.
"We are using twice as many pen
nies now as we used this summer,"
said E. M. Price, assistant cashier of
the Boone Countv National TfciTilr
Friday. More demands for pennies
man rormerly are being made on the
banks, Mr. Price said. Where the
Commons last year used a box con
taining $2 worth of pennies a week, it
now calls for a box with $5 worth.
The bank always gets the pennies
ordered, although sometimes, accord
ing to Mr. Price, there is delay. The
National Bank of Commerce of St.
Louis, through which his'bank orders.
does not always send them immediate
ly, promising to do so with the next
order, in which case the Columbia
bank soon makes another order.
The Columbia Savings Bank now
orders 60,000 pennies where formerly
it ordered none, since there were
enough in town (o supply the demand.
The manager of a Broadway drug
store said that he handles ten time as
many pennies now as formerly.
Several years ago there was little
call in Columia for paper money. Now
there is call for little else. Mr. Price
said that now he uses at his window
only two boxes, each containing 200
silver dollars. Silver is seldom want
ed except by the negro.

The Food Administrator Writes Us:
"The use of baking powder breads made of corn and other coarse flours instead of'
patent wheat flour is recommended by the Conservation Division of the Food
Administration. The wheat needed for export is thus conserved, and at the same
time healthful food for our own people is provided. The circulation of recipes pro
viding for these uses would be of assistance in carrying out our plans."
