In times past we have had some
vague ideas that perhaps govern

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

luxury of government ownership.
It has not made a good showing

PURPOSES OF FOOD
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

to stabilize prices in essential
staples.— Herbert Hoover, Au

SEVEN LOAVES OF BREAD
FOR EVERY PERSON IN
0. S. SAVED FROM WASTE
Farmers and Threshermen Patriot!*
ca I ^Respond to Call of Food
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
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
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.
