London, July 10. The people of the

liaison officer of the food ministry with
the American food administration, gave

American lelf-iacrtfice In an address
today before the consumers' council, j
"From July, 1917, to April, 11118, the.
United States exported to the allies
80,000,000 bushels of wheat products," i
said Sir William. "It was calculated
by Herbert Hoover, American food ad- !
nrtnlstrntor, thnt 50,000,000 of this rep-
resented the voluntary sacrifice of the
American exports of pork products
to the. allies In March, RUN, were 30S,
000,000 pounds. This was accomplished
by porkless days and ceaseless hog
production In the United States.
"In January." Sir William continued,
"the allies asked Mr. Hoover tor 70,
000,000 pounds of frozen beef monthly
for three months. In March 86.000,000
I pounds of frozen beef were shipped.
' This was due almost wholly to meat
