A million and a quarter signatures
were secured to the pledge cards dur

a great achievement, for the handi

from the rest of the twenty-two mil

tatoes into small cubes. Put into fry

milk enough to cover. Cook for 15
or 20 minutes or until the potatoes
are veil done and the sauce thick
and creamy. It is necessary to stir
the potatoes frequently to prevent

thickens the sauce. Creamed pota-

Here are practical ways to usr dry
bread and thereby keep in the food

United States food administration :
Cut it in thin slices and toast it.
Crisp toast is appetising with almost
any breakfast drink.
Cut portions of loaves into cubes
about three-fourths of an inch square,
put in a shallow pan and toast in the
oven to a golden brown. Serve for

-f A drop in the retail price of
flour is expected by the first of
-f next month. Flour that is now
selling for $3 a bag is expected to
drop at least 10 cents. Local
dealers are anxiously awaiting
the arrival from the mainland of
new shipments of white flour
which was sold at the mills on
the new basis of $10.30 ner bar-
rel, the price that was recently
fixed by the federal food comruis-
sion. Dealers expect a drop of
at least ii) cents a barrel by the
first of November, which would
make a reduction of 10 cents per
bag to the consumer. Flour on
Uie local markets is ranging in
prices, but $3 is a good average
As soon as the mainland ship- :
ments are received the first of a ,
series of drops is expected. i
don't waste dry bread; !
Single slice valuable:
at a conference of the Federal Food
Administrators with the United States
Food Administration heads.
In his address to the state officials.
Food Administrator Hoover explained
the psychology of the pledge-card.
"We need," he said, "some sort of a
moral, definite attachment of every
household in the country to national
service that will form a binding link,
that will maintain the constancy of
reaction in the household over the en
tir'e period of the war."
The state campaigns will be worked
through state executive committees
down through country, city, village,
and township committees. The fed
eral administrators have complete
lists of families, by counties, and the
campaign workers are prepared to
reach every family from the most
crowded city tenement to the remo
test farm home.
All existing organizations will be
utilized in reaching these. It will be
a man and woman proposition, calling
for the voluntary services of enthusi
astic community leaders. Their work
w ill be backed up by the publicity
furnished by newspapers, moving pic
tures and teijse posters that carry the
story. The fact that the campaign will
be carried on by communities and
states will doubtless inject into it a
large element of competition. The re
sults will be communicated each day
fiom the country committees to states
headquarters, and from there wired to
Washington. Each town and country
is expected to try for a 100 per cent
record and the Food Administrators
count on a final tally of all America.
This means that in the windows of
every American home will hang the
emblem that pledges that family, man
and wife, young and old, to food con
servation, and to an open declaration
of allegiance to the governent. I
