{Hurt is the Gevernment Plan
Kj^. for Next
Washington", d. c.. july 26 -a
MUonal plan (or great Liberty
Wheat Harrei In 1919 was announced
today by the lT. 8. Department of A*rl
! culture. American fanners are aske.i I
to sow to winter wheat this fall not
Iom than 45 000.000 acres?an Increase
of 7 per cent over last year's
owing?iand the Department suggests
that an even greater area, approx'm i
ately 47, 600,000 acres?an Increase
of more than 12 per cent over last ]
year?coulrl be sown If conditions are
especially favorable in all the States
and would better meet tbe needs of(
the Allied Nations at war.
ITom the smaller acreage a harvest
of 116 million bushels might be ex]
pected, it Is estimated, and from the.
larger acreage 607 millions, ha?ed.
upon an average yield of 15,7 bushels
aa acre and an abandonment of 10
per cent of ibe area sown on account
of winter kill. Tne plan fixes definate
acreage by Slates, and In a campaign
to be launched immediately by the
Department and thn State agricultural
college and leading farmers through
oat the country, growers will b.- aske 1
to make good their Slate quotas. The
recommendation regarding the plant
lag of aprtng wheat and other spring
crape and regarding live stock will
follow later.
Tie total acreage assigned to th<
several States, both minimum and
maiimam, are shown in the accompanying
table with the percentage of in
ereaae over the acreage sown last
year Indicated for each Statp. In
aome States where a large increase of
winter-wheat acreage is suggested, it
la planned correspondingly in reduce
the spring wheat acreage. Winter
wheat Is a safer crop anil producing a
larger yield per acre, so the exchange
le desirable In sections where this is
practicable. The unusual weathei
conditions of the last two years are
responsible for the increased acreage
of spring whsit this year in some sections
where winter wheat usually lsl
more extensively grown.
In announcing lis wheat production
* pragma the Department considers tho
growing need of this country and its
Allies for this essential food. The
laat crop report forecast a lftlft har
.Test of 810.930,000 bushels of winter
' and aprtng wheat.
Although this forecast In gratifying,
It to pofhted out that the reserve suptol*

practically exnausted and is the smallest
on record. The need of building
up reserves of wheat is evident. It
is pointed out that although this country
produced a small wheat crop in
1117. the total exports. Including flour
In terms of wheat, amounted to ap
proximately 100 million bushels foi
the year ending June 30. 19)8. This
Is la comparison with 178 million
bashels exported In 1917, 236 million;
bashels In 1916. and 331 million I
bashels In 1115. It was only possible
ter the United States to export wheat
It large quantities in 1915 and 1916
because of the large wheat crops of
1IU-1S-14-15, which gave this country
M accumllatlon of stocks of this grain, i
The 1*16 and 1917 crops both were
smaller than any crops since ion and
besides this, there was a greater domand
for seed wheat and an incrras>
lag papulation.
Moreover. It must be born? In mind i
says the Department, that the carry-1
over In all the 10 importing countries'
of Europe was practically exhausted]
this year before the new harvest; that,
the normal sonsumption requirements
of the exporting countries are tncreas-i
tag with the growth of the nopulathn
tnatead of diminishing that some toss-1
M 111 atorlage and transit may 'on expected
continue, and that it is highly
dealrable that a sutplus should be ac
H cumulated at insurance against partial
crop failure next year. To provide
for these additional requirements it is
therefore extremely desirable that the
maximum acreage of winter wheat
H recommended be planted by the farm
era In the United States this fall.

HISTORY on a phonograph record! At the
height of the great offensive in Picardy,
while two million Germans surged toward
Amiens and the Allies fought desperately to hold
the lines, General Pershing sent his own voice
across the water to America. At American Headquarters
in France, this grim, iron-gray man spoke
with crisp, soldierly brevity, into the horn of a
recording instrument a message to the mothers,
wives, fathers, children of the men who are fighting
there with him on the shell-torn fields of France.
Is there a home in all this great land that will not
want to listen to the voice of our boys' commander?
A fac-simile of General Pershing's famous
signature appears on every one of these records.
