W In times past we have had some vague ideas that perhaps govern ment ownership of the railroads of the country might possibly be a good thing, but under the short experience the country has had, with its poor service, high cost of shipments, and a deticit of hundreds of millions of dollars, which must be made up from increased taxes, it's a ques tion whether we care to enjoy the luxury of government ownership. It has not made a good showing at least on the trial trip. Townley's North Dakota leg islature has worked out the school fund so that the politicians of that state will now have a chance to get at it in their vari ous schemes for doing business with the public. The danger sign could well be put up when approaching the state school fund—usually considered a sac red trust for the coming genera tions of the children of the state.

PURPOSES OF FOOD ADMINISTRATION THE PAY OF IT8 BEGINNING. The hopes of the Food Admin istration are threefold: So to guide the trade in fundamental food commodities as to elimi nate vicious speculation, extor tion and wasteful practices and to stabilize prices in essential staples.— Herbert Hoover, Au gust 10, 1917. SEVEN LOAVES OF BREAD FOR EVERY PERSON IN 0. S. SAVED FROM WASTE Farmers and Threshermen Patriot!* ca I ^Respond to Call of Food Administration.- From information received by the U. S. Food Administration from the principal grain growing states, it Is now possible to announce with fair ac curacy the amount of wheat saved last harvest by improved methods of han dling. According to official calcula tions, efforts toward cleaner threshing saved fully 1G,XMJ,000 bushels of wheat with corresponding savings of other small grain harvested and threshed in a similar manner. In addition, other states, though unable to furnish fig ures, reported greatly reduced harvest losses. The figure for wheat alone is equiv alent to seven one-pound loaves of bread for every person in the United Slates and represents food that form erly was either an absolute loss or was recovered to only a slight extent by poultry and livestock. While o| portunities in this branch of conserva tion were large, the quantity of grain recovered surpasses early expecta tions. It is noteworthy also that re sults were secured principally through voluntary co-operation. No conservation measure of the Food Administration, it is declared, lias received more wholehearted sup port than that pledged and rendered by farmers and threshermen toward reducing grain waste at Its source.
