This is the way the situation is explained: — t Since the American has been cut off from his cocktails he has been consuming prodigious quantities of candy, and has been drinking oceans of nondescript but sugarly concoctions which are vended over the soda foun tain bar. At least such is the obser vation of his British brethren. In oth er words, the^ American is making su gar a substitute for alcohol. Because; of this the United States has less; sugar to export, and because there is a general shortage of sugar through-! out the world anyway, England can-! not get what she wants and conse quently has had to raise the price. : -o A mighty good thing the American army was not as slow making war as the American is making peace.
