"We have only to remember that they were wounded men and that we were Christians." she says quietly when you ask her how she could.

Food Office Gives Figures Showing Need of Strict Economy. ( Any relaxing: of wheat conserva tion means a serious want by the people of entente Europe, the Food Administration warned last night, denying recent press dispatches that indicated the need for savin? wheat had passed. Every aspect of the wheat situa tion, both present and prospective,! intensifies the need for the great est possible limitation in the Amer ican consumption of wheat and wheat products, says the adminis tration. The Food Administration's esti mate of. the conditions June 1 in dicates a total available supply until the. next harvest, including grain that will be available from the farms, in country and terminal elevators and mill elevators, of about 66.000.000 bushels. Of this. 30,000,000 bushels must be exported before the new wheat is available for export, if we are to maintain the absolutely necessary shipments to our army and the allies. That leaves about 26.000,000 bushels for domestic consumption the next two months, and normal j American consumption Is more than 40.000.000 bushels a month, so that the most liberal consumption for the next sixty days should be only one-third of normal. New Floor Till Asfsit. I The new harvest will not be gen- 1 erally obtainable in flour until the middle of August or early September, although in the extreme South it will be somewhat earlier. The indetermi nate amount in transit and in dealers* hands csnnot be reckoned with, as these supplies must remain in flow constantly, a permanent stfck. whose exhaustion or removal would cause later an acute shortage before the dis tribution of a new stock would be obtainable. At a meeting of the Federal food administrators in Waahlngton yester day, representing forty-eight States, it was the unanimous belief that, even if the harvest does prove abundant. It will be the first duty of the Ameri can people to place every grain they can save into storage as precaution against possible bad years ahead. It was the consensus that there should be no expectation of wheat bread | unliminted until after the, war, at I least. NEW RULE ON COTTON TO BE SENT TO ITALY To expedite shipments of raw cot ton to Italy and to advance the con : trol of the Italian government over | such shipments, the War Trade Board I announced yesterday that an Individ ! ual export license will be required for I the exportation of raw cotton ship ments to destinations in Italy on nnd ! after June 10.
