The following statement was Issued at ha close of the 24th annual conven tion of the National Fertilizer associa tion (held at "Whtte- Sulphur Springs; W. Va.). by Horace Bowker, re elected president of the association for the coming year: The fertilizer industcy recognizes its wartime responsibility in connection vein food production and Is doing its utmost to render a full measure of service tc the country, 'The action of the manufacturers has oeen to cut down the number of brands, to elim inate fractional brands, to make ship ments iiL full cars, to : use 200 pound sacks when and where possible, to adopt new methods of manufacture In volving great changes in plants and considerable Investments, to develop new American sources of raw mate rials., and at all times to be guided by national rather than personal welfare. The problems today are varied and complex, but the industrv is awake to Its duty and is trying to "do its bit." j The manufacturers recognize that on he supplies of available plant food depend the yields of our food crops, and that during -ihe-TCar.every possi ble effort must be made to Increase the production of fertilizers. The eliminating of brands, thp changes in shipping, and loading cars to maximum capacity, and other more or less revo lutionary measures that are boing adopted literally turn the fertilizer business upside down. Sacrifice are necessary, but gTeater efficiency Is se cured. Waste is eliminated. "We must ind do recognize that in every branch of our work personal gain and Indi vidual convenience are and must be made secondary to patriotic duty. In the manufacture of sulphuric acid, formerly made from Ppanish pyrites, manufacturers are being called upon to change their plants to allow of the burning of domestic brimstone. New sources of sulphur ara being Investi gated and developed, in co-operation with the bureau of mines and at con siderable expense. .These efforts have already met with a -certain degree of success, and must be pushed with ".ell possible speed, to increase sulphuric acid production and insure against such a shortage as will react against our national welfare. To meet the acute crisis caused by the shortage of freight cars, the indus try is having its products movei in cars loaded to marked capacity. This has caused changes in our ways of do ing business and inconveniences alike to manufacturers, dealers and consum ers, nevertheless, the change is setting free for other ,a-fc-e pressing uses half c fthe freight cars former! usee! in the transportation of fertilizers. It is helping all buyers and shippers, all in dustries and is agisting the railroads in performing their essential duties as part of our system of national defense. The supply of burlap- in the country Is limited. The use of the larger sized bags will conserve the supply by sav ing annually approximately fifteen mil lion yards of burlap. Here again in convenience results, but it, ''is. justified by the economic gain that 4e secured. In some states regulations do not per mit of the use of the larger hags. It is hoped that the state authorities will co-operate where necessary to permit of the use of the larger sizes. Every industry, as well as every individual, is today called upon for full service to the nation. The fertil izer .industry is not an excepting, and because of its basic impcrttU'oe is doubly responsible to do its full share. Already, it Is working in co-operation with the government, through the ad visory commission of the council of national defense, with the bureau of mines, and with the-Tt- S. department of agriculture and other production agencies. It pledges itself to co-operate fully and freely in all ways possible, in any and all movements which will help to win the war. The Xational Fertilizer' association, as representing the fertilizer industry, is fully in accord with the government on all matters pertaining to the pres ent war conditions. The sub-commit tee on fertilizers of the committee on chemicals of the advisory commission of, the council of national defense has the full support of the Xational Fer tilizer association, which represents at least !o per cent, of the fertilizer in dustry. Largest Potato Crop Ever. Washington, Aug. 15. The largest potato crop eyer produced in this country is the' promise of the monthly crop report just issued. L,eon M. Esta brook, chief of the bureau of crop estimates or the L nited States depart ment of agriculture, stated tnis morn ing that the average production for the previous five years (1911-1915) was 303.000,000 bushels, which represents a fair crop. This year the indications are that there will be a crop of 467,- 000,000 bushels, which Is 100,000,000 above the average. This is equal to one bushel extra for every man, woman and child in the country. In order-to avoid -waste, officials of the department of aericulture suggest two ways of taking care of this large increase: First, all housewives are urged t use potatoes as far as possible as a substitute for breadstuffs. Scconl, to preserve the potatoes for winter use by home storage. These measures', it is stated, will not only use the potatoes to advan tage, but will save wheat.
