between Combles and Peronne The evacuation of the latter point
by the foe is considered to be merely question of a lew hours as
the position has-been made practically Untenable.
v From Peronne to Bapawme fend to the north and northeast of
the latter city General Haig's advance has be?n satisfactory. Biachcs
was taken, Les Boissufs was entered and patrols passed beyond
Morval while the general advance proceeded due east of Bapaumc

Child Learns Why National rood
: Administration Has Reduced
i Substitutes Requirement
I Cubled advices were received by Food
I Administrator Child yesterday from
Wanhinton );iviiiK the reasons which
caused t lit national food administra
tion to arrive at a twenty percent basis
lor substitutes in bread used by tho
i iitt'ina t iuiiwl allies. It is auuouuced
that tho fodder grains of all of thc
Allies are estimated to be below tile
n-moun'ts of last v,ar auti that thc com
bined wheat crops are much larger than
in I 'Jl 7.
It is believed
that if substitutes are
i "ed by the
Allies at a greater per
twentv ueruent. it would
- , centnge thuu
ii -r a "shortaire of fodder irrnlus in
conjunction with a greater demrfnd kud
I oices Mould be unbearable." TheSe
prices would thus affect auinial prod
lifts such as hogs, poultry, eggs, -beef
and milk.
Taking these things under cousidera
tion, with thc voluntary wheat saving
mi the part of the people of the Unit
ed Mulej in addition to the twenty
lenent aiilist it utes required, it is bo
ievcil that sufficient wheat can be
sed'to take care of our own and the
