THE WASHINGTON TIMES: THURSDAY,' JULY 18,' 1918. Americans' Saving Enables Uncle Sam to Send Vast Amount of Food to Allies "HOOVERfflG" SAVES NEARLY BILLION LBS. OF FOOD IN U. S. "When America, tightened up her belt Jane 1. 1317, she made It pos Blble for the United States to chip to the allies 84.GOO,000 more pounds of meats and fats and 80,900,000 more bushels of cereals during the ensuing twelve months than was possible the year previous. In a letter to President Wilson, out lining this nation's grocery deliveries i to her associates in arms. Food Ad ministrator Hoover said that "all the millions of our people who have con tributed to these results should feel a very definite satisfaction that in a year of universal food shortages in the northern hemisphere, all of those people Joined together against Ger many have come through into sight of the coming harvest not only with health and strength fully maintained, but with only temporary periods of hardship." Cites Figures. All food shipments to the allies, the Belgian relief and the Red Cross to taled 11,400,000,000 during the fiscal year, .represented in 3,011400,000 pounds of meats and fats (Including meat and dairy products, vegetable oils, eta), and 340,800,000 bushels of 1 cereals. (In addition some 10.000,000 bushels of grain have been shipped to neutrals.) This has been possible. Hoover shows, despite the fact that "slaugh terable animals were not appreciably larger than the year before, and par ticularly In hogs, they were probably less." Also the urgent request of al lied food controllers early in the year for a further shipment of 75.000,000 bushels from the 1017 wheat crop found our surplus "already more than exhausted.' Tribute to Farmers, Hoover pays & high tribute to the effort and loyalty of the farmers and to those "whose sacrifice has been ac complished voluntarily and individual--ly." Without trying to distinguish where the greatest credit belongs, Hoover says, "No one. will deny the dominant -part of the American wom en." The Food Administration, by per mission of the White House, makes public the following letter, written by Mr. Hoover to the President "Dear Mr. President It is now pos sible to summarize the shipments of foodstuffs from the United States to the allied countries during the fiscal year just closed practically the last harvest Tear- Tbese- amounts Include AMUSEMENTS FILM FEATURES TVATHTD TOP AT AND JkLl, THE lXAVHt WKEK.-PEGGT HTLAKD IN OTHER MEN'S DATjaHTEItS.

The figures Indicate the measure of effort of the American people in support of allied food sup plies. The total value of these food ship ments which were in the main pur chased through, or with the collabor atlon of. the Food Administration, amount to, roundly, 11,400,000,000 dur ing the fiscal year. Meat Shipments. The shipments of meats and fats (Includes meat products, dairy prod ucts, vegetable oils, etc.) to allied destinations were as follows: Fiscal year. 1016-17 246600,000 lbs. 1917-18 3,011,100,000 lbs. Increase.. 844,600,000 lbs. "Our slaughterable animals at the beginning of the last fiscal year were not appreciably larger than the year before and particularly in hogs; they were probably less. The Increase in shipment Is due to conservation and the extra weight of animals added by our farmers. The full effect of these efforts began to bear their best re sults In the last halt of the fiscal year when the exports to the allies were 2433400,000 pounds, as against 1.266,500,000 pounds In the same period of the year before. This compares with an average of 801.000,000 pounds of total exports for the same half years in the three-year pre-war period. "In cereals and cereal products re duced to terms of cereal bushels, our shipments to allied destinations have been: Bushels. Fiscal year, 1916-17 239.900.000 Fiscal year, 1917-18 340300,000 Increase 80,900,000 "Of these cereals our shipments of the prime breadstuffs in the fiscal year 1917-18 to allied destinations were, wheat, 131,000,000 bushels, and of rye. 13,900,000 bushels, a total ot 144,900,000 bushels. Exports to Allies. The exports to allied destinations during the fiscal year 1916-17 were, wheat 135400.000 bushels and rye 2.300,000 bushels, a total of 137,400.000 bushels. In addition, some 10,000,000 bushels of 1917 wheat are now In port for allied destinations or en route thereto. The total shipments to silled countries from our last harvest of wheat will be, therefore, about 141,- 000.000 bushels, or. a total of 154,900. 000 bushels of prime breadstuffs.

A large part of the other cereals ex ported have also con Into war bread. "It is interesting; to note that since the urgent request of the allied food controllers early In the year for a further shipment of "5,000,000 bushels from our 1917 wheat than originally planned, we shall have shipped to Eu rope or have en route nearly 85.000.' 000 bushels. At the time of this re quest our .surplus was already more than exhausted. This accomplish ment of our people In this matter stands out even more clearly if we bear in mind that we had available in the fiscal year 1916-17 from net carry over and as surplus over our normal consumption about 200.000.000 bush els of wheat which we were able to export that year without trenching; on our noma loar. This last rear. however, owing to the large failure or tne 1917 wheat crop, we had avail able from net carry-over and produc tion ana imports only just about our normal consumption. Therefore, our wheat shipments to allied destina tions represent approximately sav ings from our own wheat bread. Figures Insufficient. -rnese figures, however, do not fully convey the volume of the effort and sacrifice made during: the past year by the whole Auerlcan people. Despite the magnificent effort of our agricultural population In planting: a much increased acreage in 1917, not only was there a very large failure In wheat but also, the corn failed to mature properly, and our corn is our dominant crop. We calculate that the total nutritional production of the country for the fiscal year Just closed was between 7 per cent and 9 per cent below the average of the three previous years, our nutritional surplus for export In those rears ht Ing about the same amount as the shrinkage last year. Therefore, the consumption and waste In food h been greatly reduced In every direc tion curing ine year. "I am sure that all the millions of our people, agricultural as well as urban, who have contributed to these results, should feel a very definite satisfaction that in a year of uni versal food shortages In the northern hemisphere all of those people Joined together against Germany have come through into sight of the coming """i not oniy witn bealth and strength fully maintained, but with only temporary periods of hardship The European allies have been com pelled to sacrifice more than our own people, but we have not failed to load every steamer since the delays of the storm months last winter. Our con tributions to this end could not have been accomplished without effort and sacrifice, and it is a matter for fur ther satisfaction that it has been ac complished voluntarily and individu ally. It Is difficult to distinguish be tween various sections of our peo ple the homes, public eating places, food trades, urban or agricultural populations in assessing credit for tnese results, but no one will deny the dominant part of the American women Youn faithfully, (Signed) "HERBERT HOOVER."

James Edward Duke, who was cited by General Pershing for bravery as told in The Times yester day, also has the distinction of par ticipating In the .first successful all. American bombintr raid made in Ger man territory. This was made known today through & letter received from Ueutenant Duke by his mother, lira. Mary lb Duke, 1723 Corcoran street northwest. The bombintr raid which the lieu tenant was in resulted In the destroy in? of a number of warehouses, water tanks and a roundhouse behind the German lines. This was the first suc cessful attempt of American planes to raid German territory and was carried out without loss of machines or men. Several times during- the flight boche airplanes were seen, but no fighting occurred. The lieutenant tells of an engage ment, shortly after the raids, with nine German aviators, In which his ma chine became disabled and was forced to descend to the ground, and did not engttae In the flght "Zrtter Describe Raid. The letter received by the mother is given here: "Dear Mother I am writing this, after having returned from the first successful American bombing raid the Americans have ever carried out. Here Is how the raid occurred: "We went over the German lines about 6:30 o'clock Thursday and crossed at Verdun. We were heading to a point west of Metz. "We were traveling along nicely un til two black puffs of smoke from anti-aircraft guns were discovered. This kept up during the whole trip, but no damage was done. During the whole trip we only saw a few enemy planes, which were some 4,500 feet be low us. These German aviators did not bother us at all, and we continued our trip. "After reaching a point west of Metz, which was our objective, about 7 o'clock, wo began dropping bombs on a railroad yard. We cut the water tanks, smashed the warehouses and the roundhouses In the Immediate vicinity and everything that came In our way.
