LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1920 PECANS DEMANDED BY BRITISH, RE SAYS American Trade Representative Ur* ges Shipments of Paper Shell Variety. England offers an exceptional market right now for American food, especially fruit, says Edward Foley, San Francisco lawyer who was chief of the enforcement division of the United States Food Administration during the war, and who is serving as agricultural trade commissioner of the American Embassy at London. Mr. Foley is in New Orleans on his way home, but stopped off at several points to start the ball of opportunity rolling. Mr. Foley’s special message to Louisiana is to send over her surplus of paper shell pecans. The British know only the hard-shell, common kind, and would pay the price for the improved delicacy. In the same way he encouraged Georgia to ship some of her peach crop overseas. Abroad they know only the hot-house veriety, which are very expensive, to that the profit would be large. He thinks safe carriage could be insured by adopting the method employed in wrapping the forced fruit, which is to wrap each peach separately in w T ood-wx>ol and cotton, after the man ner in which eggs are handled. There are other opportunities just as at tractive. The scope of Mr. Foley’s office in cludes mainly foodstuffs and cot ton, marking the condition in which American wares arrive, and watching the markets for them. America is already doing an enormous fruit busi ness in England, over 2,000,000 bar rels of apples coming in last season. The only apple rival is Canada. Eng land is looking to this country for sugar, which means the sweet is scarcer there than on this side, with no supply in sight for the near future. The British have formed the sacharine habit, two tablets to a cup of tea. The stuff is sweeter than sugar, but, said Mr. Foley” you know that it is not sugar or in sugar’s class.” General conditions over there have improved a lot, he commented, but the low exchange rate is still a serious matter. ‘‘Cotton is the most interesting subject with which we have to deal,” remarked Mr. Foley. There is a vol untary tax of 2 cents a bale at all ports to cover the cost of the cam paign. Tfye general impression is that the time has come for Great Britain to raise the cotton for her own spindles. Conditions in Egypt do not inspire continuance of the hope of a source of supply in that country. So new fields are being sought ,especially along the Gold Coast of Africa. England is worried over the immense and rapid increase in the" number of spindles in the United States and Japan, and the conviction prevails that they will eventually absorb all the cotton grown in America. The British idea is first to find adaptable soil and area, and attention will then be turn ed to the matter of grades best to raise.” The foregoing, taken from the New Orleans Times-Picayune of Sun day’s date, containing Mr. Foley’s message, can be applied to Mississip pi as well as to Louisiana, especially to our own Gulf Coast, and The Echo reproduces it for that purpose. The very high value of the nut as a source of protein, fat and starch entitles it to a higher plane of use-’ fulness than as a dessert delicacy or CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL, AT KILN, MISS.

It is fast becoming a chief source of food, and is so re cognized by the best authorities. The increasing recognition of the value of the nut is shown by the fact that importations of nuts and nut pro ducts in the fiscal yeax. 1917 were valued at $33,000,000. It is, more over, the most valuable crop pro duced by trees. episWaTchurch WILL HOLD CONVOCA TION HERE TWO DAYS Christ Church, Bay St. Louis, on Tuesday and Wednesday, will be the scene of the two-day '‘Convocation of Pass Christian of the Protestant Episcopal Church,” which composes the Coast deanry.

New Orleans, May 27, 1920. To the Editor of The Times-Picayune: Following the notice in several of the daily papers that Biloxi and other bathing resorts along the Mssissippi sound had passed legislation against the “one-piece” bathing suits and women going bathing without stock ings, the following excerpts from an editorial appearing in a physical cul ture magazine would be to the point. “Chicago, the home for generations of the most painful sort of prudery, is coming out into the light. No city in the union has been more cursed by laws based upon the idea that the human body, and particularly the body of woman, is an indecent ob ject. Though none of these laws have been repealed, the people of Chicago have taken the situation into their own hands, and they now bath on the beaches of Lake Michigan in cos tumes that allow them the free use of their bodies. The women wearing one-piece .costumes without skirts or stockings! Just think of it! Chicago has indeed made some progress to ward decency when it can bear such a reform without comment from either pulpit or press. The degree of decency existing in any community can be measured by the extent to which it will view the human figure undraped, without vile or obscene comments. Let our women bath in a costume that will add to their vitali ty, health and beauty. It is only in decent minds that make skirts and stockings necessary for women when bathing. * * ♦ltds very difficult for a woman to*swim in the conventional costume. Thus is she not only han dicapped in learning to swim, but in time of danger is unable to swim as well as she otherwise might.” The legislators of Biloxi and Gulf coast resorts should take notice and keep up with the rest of the world.

The bonds of the United States are the safest securities in the world and the present market price, which is very much under their real value, offers an extraordinary opportunity to make an absolutely safe •invest ment at the high rate of return upon the money paid for the securities. These bonds are the best in the world because: This is 'the greatest, richest and most powerful nation in the world. It has never failed to pay prompt ly the interest and principal of its obligations. It has less debt capital -than any other nation. Its resources are the richest and its people produce more and earn more than any other people. Money is cheap now, but it will almost certainly be scarce and dearer wiien these bonds mature. Conse puently it will buy more then than now. Your money invested in these bonds now has three great advan tages, low cost, high rate of return and higher purchasing power of the dollar you will get back. Hon. John Skelton Williams, Comp troller of the Currency, in a state ment issued on May 26th, has this to say about Government bonds as an investment: “For the first time in half a century, those who have money to invest have now' tho opportunity of buying the safest security on earth, on a basis which will yield, during the life of the investment, an average income of more than 6 per cent per annum. This is three times a smuch at the interest paid on United States Government 2 per cent bonds, which in times past have sold above par.” You can buy these bonds in such sums as you desire through your bank or trust company.
