President's Plea to Save Food Supplies The chief part of the burden of finding food supplies for the peoples associated with us in the war falls for the present upon the American people, and the drain upon supplies on such a scale neces sarily affects the prices of our necessaries of life. Our country, however, is blessed with an abundance of food stuffs, and If our people will economize in their use of food, provi dently confining themselves to the quantities required for the mainte nance of health andatrenxth; if they will eliminate waste; and if they Will make use of those commodities of which we have a sur plus and thus free for export a larger proportion of those required by the world now dependent upon us, we shall not only beN abloto accomplish our obligations to thm, but we shall obtain and establish reasonable prices at home. To provide an adequate supply of food for both our own sol diers on the other side of the seas and for the cvil .populations and the armies of the allies is one of oar first and foremost obligations; for if we are- to maintain them constantly in this. struggle for the independence of all nations, we must first maintain their health and strength. The solution of ur food, therefore, is dependent upon the individual service of every man, woman, and child in the United States. ' The greit voluntary effort in this direction which has been ini tiated and organized by the food administration- under my direction offers an opportunity of service in the war which is open to everv individual, and by whicn every individual -may serve both his own people and the peoples of the world. We cannot accomplish our objects in this great war without 'sacrifice and devotion, and in no direction can that sacrifice and de votion be shown more than by each home and pnblic eating place in the country pledging its support of the food administration and com plying with its requests.
