WiLL BUY FORAGE
FOR ARMY CAMPS
South Carolina Farmers Who Have
Forage to Offer Will Find Ready
Market In This State-All Offere
Will Be Given Consideration.
Columbia.-August Kohn, chairman
of Conservation and ProductcLon of
the Food Administration for South
Carolina, has received a letter from
the Chief of the Forage Branch of the
War Department. Quartermaster's
Division, stating that offers of forage
from farmers and dealers having it
for sale in the neighborhood of the
army camps and cantonments will be
gladly received and will be given con
"In fact, says the letter, we are
here to buy forage for the government
wherever we can (1o so to the bust ad
vantage, all things considorod."
It is advised when contractors or
farmers are submitting their propos
als on forage they should state the
kind and grade of forage they have to
sell, the quantity and its location, the
time they can make shipment, and the
price. If prices are satisfactory, pur
chases will be made, it is assured.
All proposals should be addressed to
Chlof of thu Forago Branch, Ofleo of
the Quartermaster General, United
States Army, Lytton Building Chica
Mr. Kohn has been working for
some :imi past to assure this assur
ance from the Government, as it has
been felt that farmers in this and other
States, who have forage to sell should
be given consliueration, especially
when it is considered that the camps
and cantonments offer the natural
market, and the saving in freight to
the Government would be a factor not
to be disregardeL
