RED CROSS TO COLLECT
CLOTHING FOR BELGIUM
Hoover Asks Davison's Aid In Work
Beginning Mari 18 and ending
March 25, a seve day, nation-wide
Campaign will be carried on by the
American Red Cross and the
Commission for Relief in 1l3
glum to secure a minimum
quantity of 5,000 tons of clothes
for the destitute people of Belgium
and the occupied portions of Northern
France. At the request of Herbert
Hoover, chairman of the Commission
foe Relief in Belgium, Henry P. Davi
son, chairman of the Red Cross War
Council, has granted the use of the na
tional Red Cross organization for col
lecting the needed clothing.
As the oommission has allowed most
of its local committees to disband be
cause of the financial arrangements
made last June with the government,
it has turned to .the Red Cross for
help. Where the local committ ees of
the Relief ('onim ission are still intact,
they will work side by side with the
Red Cross Chapters.
The practically entire exhaustion of
clothing, shoes, and leat her in occupied
Belgium and Northern l"rance and the
shortagto of these necessities in the
world's markets are making it in
creasingly difficult for the Commission
to keep clothed and shod the unfortun
ate people in these territories. In ad

and surplus clothing, shoes, blankets,
flannel cloth, etc., are needed in large
quantities from the peoplo of the Unit

CANTEEN SERVICE FOR
SAMMIES IN FRANCE
Red Cross To Serve Doys In The Front
Line T cnches
The American F I Cross has just
arranged to pstahl .1 with the Ameri
can troops in Fran. a front ling can
teen service similar to that through
which they have served more than
a million poilus with hot drinks during
the last. six months, according to a
cable just, received by the War Coun
cil from Major James H. Perkin:, Red
Cross Commissioner to France.
This will consist. of rolling canteens
atationed close behind the front. line
trenches. There are now fifteen of
these operating behind the French
lines, from which fifty or more large
receptacles of hot drinks are sent for
ward daily, usually in the small hours
of the morning. These drinks are
served free to the men going on or
coming off duty.
This service has proven of such
value to the French that the Ameri
can army has asked the Red Cross to
have this service directly in touch
with the medical relief stations near
est the front. The work is often done
under heavy shell fire and requires
men of great bravery and sympathy.
The American army officers are man
ifesting a keen Interest in having this
serv'ice at the disposal of the AmerIcan
troopis and have asked the Red Cross
to enlist a substantial number of men
of the highest caliber to undertake
this work. It will be performed at the
point nearest the firinig line at which
civilians are permitted.
NURSES NEEDED IN
Surgeon General Asks Red Cross To
Supply 5,000 Nurses
Surgeon General G'orgas of the
United States army has called upon
the American Red Cross to supply to
the Army Nurse Corps five thousand
nurses between now and the first of
June. These nurses are needled for
service in the military hospitals both
in this country andl abroad. Although
the Red Croas has already supplied
nearly 7,000 murses as a reserve, for
the Army and Navy Nurse Corps since
the beginning of the wvar, the impera
tive need for a greater army of nurses
grows daily as the wvar progresses.
According to a statement made by
Surgeon General Gorgas, it is estimat
edl that there are between eighty and
ninety thousand registered nurses in
the Unit ed States, and that approxi
mately thirty thousand will be need
ed for service in army hospitals during
the present year. The immediate needl
for five thousand of these is empha
Miss Jane A. Delano, Director of the
Department of Nursing of the Ameri
can Red Cross said:
"Not only are we appealing to the
nurses to volunteer for this service,!
but we also appeal to the public and to
Ithe pihysicians employing these nurses
to aid in making it possible for them,
wvithouit too great financial sacrifiee
on their part, to hold themselves in
readhiness to respond to the call of
theIr couintry. Wd wish also to bring
to the attention of nurses the unusual
opportunity offered by the insurance
law enacted for the protection of our
army aind navy, which applies equally
to nurses assigned to duty as members
of the Army and Navy Nurse Corps.
"A great responsibility rests upon
the nurses of tihe coutntry. They are
the only group of women recognized
as a part'of the military establishment,
and should be looked upon as the rep
resentatIves of the womanhood of
America at the front.
"Not only should the other womi:n
of the country encourage nuirses to
volunteer~ for service, but they shouldt
make every effort poRsile to protect
the rlhunes holding themselves re-idy
. or service and share with them thle re
spnnibil t y s nd sacrifices necessary."
URGEO TO PLANT
Is Practically a Sure Crop And
Especially Attractive Owing
To Labor Shortage.
Columbia, S. C.-There never has
been any doubt as to the raising of
sweet potatoes in South Carolina. It
is practically a sure crop and in view
of the labor situation it is one of the
very best crops that can be planted.
Every sweet potato that is grown in
this State is growing to help in the
food flight to win the war. In addition,
potatoes in the present market con
ditions are a wonderfully profitable
At the request of the Chairman of
the food production campaign in this
State, Prof. George P. Hoffman has
prepared a series of articles in con
nection with the planting and gather
ing of seed potatoes, and will be pub
lished from time to time. The imme
diate urgency is in securing seed stock
for the satisfactory planting. The real
shortage of seed potatoes is perhaps
not realizcd, and those interested in
the planting of seed potatoes should
at once arrange to get their seed.
Professor Hoffman has this to say:
"With an increase of nearly three
times the normal selling price com
bined with a wanton loss of more than
75 per cent of South Carolna's sweet
potato crop of the past season, it is
obvious that the necessary seed for
planting this year's crop will be far
insufficient. Therefore, it is impera
tive that plant dealers and planters
make immediate provision for sup
plying their needs. Disease-free seed
should be bedded as soon as possible.
This shortage may he supplemented
by a large per cent through early
plantings of small areas from which
late- plantings may be made by use
of vine cuttings.
"The Nancy Hall and Porto Rico are
the leading and most popular varieties
in this State, but these varieties not
being available, no time should be
lost tn obtaining disease-free seed or
plants of other varieties. Every ef
fort should be made for the planting
of a sufficient. area to supply home
consumption with a surplus for the
"The planters of South Carolina
have been asked to increase by 60 per
cent the crop of last year, which was
7,600,000 bushels, produced on 80,000
acres. This necessary increase may
be easily obtained by the planting as
a mi:imum of one-lbalf acre per plow.
"From 8,000 to 10,000 plants will
be needed for planting one acre or
8,000 to 10,000 bushels of seed stock.
Small potatoes are equally as good
and will furnish a greater number of
plants per given quantity than will
the larger roots, therefore, planters
are advised to use the smaller pota

The Value Of The Dollar.
The importance of raising food
stuffs at home can not perhaps be
better accentuated than by quoting
figures prepared by Mr. Arthur L. Lee
for the New York Times. The dollar
on the day the war broke out as com
par'ed with the dollar of today in pur
chasing c'apacity shows just a little
more than fifty-six per cent of its
value at that time. 'rhis means that
the dollar' the farmer derives from
his crop buys for him just fifty-six
cents worth of corn, bacon, flour or
food-stuffs as compared with the same
dollar that he would have had in 1914.
Aside from the patriotic duty of
helping to raise food crops at home.
from a parely selfish standpoint the
man who can raise food-stuffs at home
ought to realize that his dollar has a
purchasing capacity today of only
fifty-six cents as compared1 with the
same dollar of 1914. Mr. Lee in his
article gives these graphic diagrams
indicating the reduced value of the
dollaar. This applies as fully to every
thing that is bought as it does to food
The diagrams of the dlollar'sI real
purchasing capacity are presented by
the Food Canservator as he is con
vinced they stress an important phase
of the campaign for more food.
