General Reduction In Use ef All Com
modities Not So Easy at Con
serving Particular Thing.
Use less of all food; save all along
the line. That, briefly, la the con-net-ration
program of the Pood Admin
istration for the coming year.
Last year there were wheatlessdaya
ii nd meatless days, but this year the
people of this country will not be
asked to stop eating any particular
food. The program will be one of a
drive on unnecessary conBumption
To those who want to be told ex-
atcly what they should eat and what
they shouldn't eat it may appear some
what nebular to say the Food Admin
istration wants them to reduce all
food consumption to the minimum
point of public health and strength.
But the Food Administration Is confi
dent that suoh a program will be car
Return te Old Principles.
"A program of this kind Is a return
to many of the principles enunciated a
year ago and which have been more
or less lost sight of in the attempts to
substitute In order to gain first one
position after another," said F. B,
Mumford, Federal Food Administrator
for Mlnsourl. "A year ago the Food
Administration asked the Amerloan
people to redure all unnecessary con
sumption and waste. We preached the
Kospel of the clean plate. And that is
the gospel we want to get over In
every household in Missouri this year,
If we can get It over It will have a bet
irr total result than any plan of sub
s'ltut'ons to fill specific programs.
"Mr. Hoover believes the housewife
has got to the point of education on
food questions that will enable us to
tell her to UFe her own judgment and
tet along with as little as she can. He
believes she will show more pride and
mure national service in it If she Is
given a general job to do than if
everything were laid out to her step
"The Food Administration Is not let
ting down In the food program. This
should be understood distinctly. It Is
asking more than ever before. It li
easy enough for people to keep a
meatless day it la not so easy for peo
ple to reduce their consumption of
meat. And we are going to ask for
the difficult 'service and not for the
It is Mr. Hoover's opinion that If
eery man, woman and child In the
United States tests every action every
day and every hour by the one touch'
stone does this or that contribute to
the wart Germany can be beaten In

What Must Be Accomplished.
To attain victory and "bring this
dreadful business to an end," tho fol
lowing must be accomplished:
wore tnan b.buu.uuu righting men
must be placed In Europe; we must
supply the greatest mechanical equip
ment ever given an army; we must
provide ships for our army and, to do
this, cut, down our Imports of sugar,

1,050,000 tons more meats, fats, dairy
products, etc, than last year, 8,600.000
tons more breadstuffs, 830,000 tons
more sugar and 760,000 tons more feed
Even this program means further
self-denial of the Allies next year.
They are making this pacrifice in the
common cause, Mr. Hoover said. We-
must maintain health and strength
among them, he declares, or they will
be unable to put their full strength

Let Consumption and Waste.
"We must secure a reduction in the
consumption and waste in the two
great groups of breadstuffs and meats
and fatB in all breads and cereals,
oeer, porn, poultry, dairy and vege
table oil. The average consumption
oi our people of breadstuffs amounts
to about six pounds a week, and of
meats and fata to four pounds a week
for each person. A reduction of con
sumption to less than one-half pound
a week a person in each of these two
great groups of foods would aocora

Handling Labor Shortage.
Different places are getting a good
deal different results in the matter
of supplying the shortage of labor
in farming and war industries. In
some places it is more or less hap
hazard, and thore is no general co
operation. Employers bid against
each other, employes drift from one
shop to another ia search ot higher
wages, A large number of new
men have to be broken in all the
time, and a force never gets down
to a working basis.
The situation is terribly serious.
because of the need of men for war
munitions is not being met. The
War Department has projected an-
enormous war program, but it takes
an enormous amount of material to
carry it out. If we can have plenty
of shells, we can blast our way next
year to Berlin. Otherwise not.
Whatever we fall short in material
will have to be made up with the
bodies of our young men.
In the little state of Delaware
they have bad unusual success in
handling the labor problem through
Community Labor Boards. These
are working harmoniously to draw
abor from the Ir-ss essential in
dustries and put it where it is most
The first day that the first of these
oards got to work, it issued notices
to 150 workers employed in the less
essential industries. Within 24
hours after they were mailed, 60 of
these workers called at the employ
ment office, and were assigned to
essential war work where their
work was badly needed.
Thirty five of the journeymen
barbers in Wilmington. Del. were
called on to enter essential indns
tries, and everyone of them his
If the government could get that
kind of co-operation everywhere we
would not hear much more of
scarcity of labor or of inability of
the munition plants, farms, and
other productive agencies to do
what is expected of them.
