Corn, the leading American crop,
is needed so badly for the produc
tion of meat that every
effort is being made to
encourage the raising of
record crops this year and
next year. This is the reason why
such generous premiums are offer
ed for good exhibits of corn at the
Minnesota State Fair, September 2
America produces more taan
three-fourths of the world's crop
of corn. Four-fifths of all the farm
ers in America grow corn. One-third
of all the land in cultivation is in
corn. In 1917 the corn crop amount
ed to over three billion bushels,
and was valued at more than, four
Corn is not only good for live
stock but for human, beings too.
TOT many years the American
eople have been accustomed -to
eating cornmeal mush, hominy,
grits, breakfast flakes, canned corn,
popcorn, and corn bread. Still, un
til the entrance of the United
States in the Great War, corn did
not constitute as much of the hu
man diet as might be imagined.
Since it has become necessary to
substitute corn for wheat, that
shipments of wheat may be sent
to Europe to feed the wheat-hun
gry people there, corn has become
more popular than ever as a part
of our diet. Until now only one
bushel of every thirty bushels has
been used for human food.
The local corn show will empha
size the necessity of using none
but the very best varieties and
types of corn, that our output per
acre may be increased tremendous

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?
No pie, cake or fancy pastry of any
kind will be exhibited at the coming
Minnesota State Fair, Sept. 2 to 7,
Since the Fair is a "War Exposi-
tion," it is believed that frills in cook
ing must be discouraged everywhere.
"Altogether too much sugar, lard
and other ingredients needed else
where in winning the war are re
quired for pie and cake," says Mrs.
Bertha Dahl Laws, Superintendent of
the Woman's Work Department. "You
won't catch the Fair encouraging
things of that nature this year."
A big bread exhibit is to be shown.

THE FOURTH LIBERTY LOAN.
The campaign for the Fourth Lib
erty Loan will begin September 28
and close October 19. The result of
the loan will be watched with keen
interest in Europe, not only by our
associates in the war against the
Teutonic powers but by our enemies.
It will be regarded by them as a
measure of the American people's
support of the war.
The Germans know full well the
tremendous weight and significance
of popular support of the war, of
the people at home backing up the
Army in the field. As the loan suc
ceeds our enemies will sorrow as it
falls short they will rejoice. Every
dollar subscribed will help and en
courage the American soldiers and
hurt and depress the enemies of
The loan will be a test of the loy
alty and willingness of the people of
the United States to make sacrifices
compared with the willingness of our
soldiers to do their part. There must
be and will be no failure by the peo
ple to measure up to the courage and
devotion of our men in Europe. Many
of them have given up their lives
shall we at home withhold our money
Shall we spare our dollars while they
spare not their very lives?
