AlUd BMt PrMhMttoft Fall On-thJN PraotioaA The world today la producing forty per cent less beet sugar than the pre war average. Counting the American, Allied and Oermuu-AustrluD crops, aa well as the neutrals, the U. S. Food Administra tion has estimated that the world shortage creuted by the light crop of 101 T-1018 Ih at least three and a half milllnu tons. That the 1917-1918 crop of cane sug ar was two million tons In excess of the previous year does not relieve the general shortage. Cuba and .lava produce one-half of t!ie world nine -rop, and the Java sug ar Is too Tar removed from America to transport when shipping Is badly need ed to transport and maintain the mili tary forces in France. In Java a large part of the old sugar crop is still awaiting shipment Since It requires 150 to 1(50 days for each hoat that is sent to Java, the possibili ties of obtaining adequate shipments of Java sugar this season are remote. Allies' Production Falls. Taking the Allied nations as a group, official reports show that beet sugar production is less by one-third than the pre-war average. French beet sugar Industry has stif. fered most by the war. The French : yield of beet sugar Is now only 29.1 per cent, of the pre-war average. For the Ave years preceding the out break of hostilities in Europe, France produced an average of 752,542 tons of sugar each year. For 1917-18 the French production was 219,416 tons. With 61 factories operating, as com pared with more than 200 that were In existence before the war and before the general campaign of destructlve ness launched by the German armies, France nevertheless managed to manu facture more beet sugar In 1917-18 than In 1916-17, when the total output was 202,415 tons. Italy In 1917-18 produced 100,800 tons of beet sugar, which was 56,000 tons less than the previous year and 110.250 less than the annual output of sugar for the Cve year pre-war period. u Li y n m n fa yearling heifers 1 bull 7 cows 1 cream separator 1 disc cultivator for before being removed. F. W. CURL, Clerk Red Cross The Fourth of July in France Next Saturday evening at Phelps theatre, , the picture, "The 4th of July in Paris," will be shown. It may interest our readers to know that a Guymon boy, Lloyd E. Alderman, was in the parade, and from a letter which he wrote home, and which recently appeared in The Guymon Herald, we take the following: There were a few men from each company allowed to at tend the grand 4th of iuly par ade in Paris There we're' eight men fr6mk Co. B. I tyas lucky I guess to get such an opportun ity. On the Place deTAlma hun dreds of people had gathered by 7 o'clock in the morning. Most of the great crowd wore small American flags and French flags in their hats, belts, coats, etc. The houses, stores, and all else were decorated with the Star Spangled Banner and French Tri-color. As we passed the wounded French soldiers we received a cheer that will be remembered a lifetime by those who heard it. The scene became more and more brilliant as we continued. Around Washington Monu ment flowers and ferns were 'arranged in profusion. v During the parade American. Aviators were flying continual ly above us, doing all kinds of stunts. We were smothred with beautiful flowers during the march. everyone throwing them several places the flow ers were as deep as 4 and 5 inches in the streets. As we passed the principal places everyone was at atten tion, with hats off, until we. came along with our helmets and combat packs on just as we were in the trenches. Then would come the greatest out burst of cheering I ever heard, every one went wild it seemed. All you could hear 'was "The men from the front." I was sure proud to be with this bunch. 4 J 6 1 Mi 'VI J.
