Over Three Times Pre-War Shipments
Required Situation in Wheat and
Fats Proves Government's ,
Policy Sound. .
With the guns In Europe silenced,
we have now to consider a new world
food situation. But there cnn be no
hope tlmt the volume of our exports
can be lightened to the slightest de
gree with the cessation of hostilities.
Millions of people liberated from the
Prussian yoke are now depending
upon us for the food which will keep
them from starvation.
With food the United States made
It possible for the forces of democ
racy to hold out to victory. To insure
democracy in the world, we must con

may supply these liberated nations of
Europe with food. Hunger among a
people inevitably breeds anarchy.
American food must complete the work
of making the world safe for democ
Last year we sent 11,820,000 tons of
food to Europe. For the present year,
with only the European Allies to feed,
we had originally pledged ourselves to
a program that would have Increased
our exports to 17,f00,000 tons. Now,
to feed the liberated nations, we will
have to export a total of not less than
20,000,000 toas practically the limit
of loading capacity at our ports. Re
Viewing the world food situation, we
find that some foods will be obtainable
In quantities sufficient to meet all
world needs under a regime of eco
nomical consumption. On the other
hand, there will he marked world
shortages in some Important commodi
ties. Return to Normal Bread Loaf.
With the enlarged wheat crops
which American farmers have grown,
and the supplies of Australia, the Ar
gentine and other markets now acces
sible to shipping, there are bread
grains enough to enable the nations to
return to their normal wheat loaf,
provided we continue to mill flour at
a high percentage of extraction and
maintain economy in eating and the
avoidance of waste.
In fats there will be a heavy short
age about 3,000,000,000 pounds in
pork products, dairy products and
vegetable oils. While there will be a
shortage of about three million tons
in rich protein feeds for dairy ani
mals, there will be sufficient supplies
of other feedstuff's to allow economical
In the matter of beef, the world's
supplies are limited to the capacity of
the available refrigerating ships. The
supplies of beef in Australia, the Ar
gentine and the United States are suf
ficient to load these ships. There will
be a shortage In the Importing coun
tries, but we cannot hope to expand
exports materially for the next months
In view of the bottle neck In trans
We will have a sufficient supply of
sugar to allow normal consumption In
this country If the other nations re

Twenty Million Tons of Food.
Of the world total, North America
will furnish more than 60 per cent.
The United States, Including the West
Indies, will be called upou to furnish
20,000,000 tons of food of all kinds as
compared with our pre-war exports of
about 6,000,000 tons.
While we will be able to change our
program In many respects, even a
casual survey of the world supplies
In comparison to world demands shows
conclusively that Europe will know
famine unless the American people
bring their home consumption down
to the barest minimum "that will main

There are conditions of famine In
Europe that will be beyond our power
to remedy. There are 40,000,000 peo
ple In North Russia whom there Is
small chance of reaching with food
this winter, their transportation Is
demoralized In complete anarchy, and
shortly many of their ports will be
frozen, even If Internal transport
could be realized.
To Preserve Civilization.

' Famine Is the mother of anarchy,
From the Inability of governments to
secure food for their people grows
revolution and chaos. From an ability
to supuly their people grows stability
