I Rï Bs ftk dstorce with which the farmers are be ; I The ir i••.£>.. .1 to an enlarged production of staple food its should help to make them realize the re quirements of the world. Even proci j hostilities end unexpectedly in Europe it will be a long time before the production of fdod continent can reaclt a normal basis. 111 t I E ruse of the shortage of such crops throughout i; ie V \;r!d, Secretary Houston declares "there is nQ r j g ^ 0 £ excess i ve production" at this time. It is .parent that the farmers of this country have a job oil their hands. They have, besides united States, most of the belligerent nations, U 0 feed. That they will patriotically respond to , jj- e )leec ] - s known without question. J Todo this they are urged to plant wheat, oats, i barley, rye, grain, sorghums, flax, corn, cow peas, j soy beans, potatoes and all other crops which can I feed men r animals. Flax, for instance, mention " ed above, is net a human food, yet its seed consti tutes an important element in the dairy food sup ply, ar.d releases other grain products for use as food. Vegetable crops of carrots, rutabaga, turnips, onion.», cabbages, etc., should receive more atten tion t : 'un they generally receive. They are cap able of large production on suitable land under 'ntensive culture throughout the more densely populated portions of the country. Consumers living in villages and in the suburbs of cities do not appreciate their means of adding materially to their food supply by utilizing suit able idle soil in yards, vacant lots and unused out lying fields. Gardening is an industry in which the family and community may share with help fulness and benefit. We urge our readers to the importance of th«se facts, War privations are bound to bécome necessary unless enough is raised for ourselves .-..nd our allies. The government will see that the farmers are well paid despite the hugeness of their crops.' The best thing that America can do is to plant foo.l enough to feed the world and in that case the farmers of America will reap the profits. Next to the war— if not alongside with it—is dkvussion of the nation's food problems. In Eng land and France-and Russia discussion hinges on the same topic. All of whjch leads to the assumption that our farmers .this year are in the first lipe trenches. It is really more important that we cultivate the soil properly and efficiently than th%t we faisè an army of 2,000,000 men. Without food neither the allies nor ourselves can win. Give us food.
