I The result of iaereevo'd proauetio;. I and conservation efforts In IheTJnlted i States has been that with the cessa I tion of hostilities we are able to re i turn to a normal wheat diet.

There Is wheat enough avail j able to hare-a white -ioaf at the com mon table. Hut last year the tale was different Only by the greatest possible savlnj and sacrifice were tte able to keep a steady stream -of wheat and flour mov ing across the aea. We found our selves at the beginning of the-itarves; year with an unusually short crop Even the most optimistic statisticians figure we b x! a bare surplus of 2d,00i -U» And yet Europe ,uas facing ihe probability of a bread -famine—and in Europe bread is by far the most important article in the diet. All of this surplus had left the country early In the fall. By the first af the year we had menaced to ship a little more than 50,000,000 bushels by practicing the utmost economy at ! home—by wheatless days, wheatless ; meals, heavy substitution of other cereals and by sacrifice at almost every meal throughout the country. In January the late Lord Rhondda, then British Food Controller, cabled that only if we sent-an additional 75, (X 10.000 bushels before. July 1 coAld he take tlie responsibility of assuring his people that they would be fed. The response of the American peo ple was 85,000,000 bushels safely deliv ered overseas between January 1 and July 1. Out of a harvest» which gave •us only 20,000,000 bushels surplus wo actually shipper 141,000 000 bushels. Thus did America fuiiill her pledge, that the Allied bread rations could he maintained, and already the American people are demonstrating that, with an awakened war conscience, last 3 ear s figures w ill bo-bettered.

This result, accompanied by corresponding savings of barley, oats, rye and other grains, Is shown by reports from 33 grain states to the" U. S. Food Administration. Other-states, although not prepared to furnish defi nite figures of conservation in the grain fields, report greatly reduced harvest losses. This rural food saving achievement, accomplished In scarcely six months' time, was In direct response to re quests by the Food Administration, which-asked farmers and thresbermen to reduce harvest losses from about 814 per cent.—the estimate«] average In normal times—to the lowest possi ble minimum. Country grain thresh ing committees carried into ev«?ry grain growing community the official recommendations for accomplishing the results desired. In numerous instances drivers of racks with leaky bottoms were sent from the fields to repair their equip ment and frequently bad order thresh ing machines were stopped until the cause of waste was removed.

NO ONE SUFFERED IIER^. ■The marvel of our voluntary food snving, now that we are "getting re sults," Is that no one ever actually suffered any hardship from It; that we ail are better In bealtn and spirit and better satisfied witli ourselves b# cause of our friendly self-denial. Food control In America hold the price of breadstuffs stendy, prevented vicious speeu'atl«*n and extortion and preserved tranquillity at home. In no other nation is there so willlhg a sense of voluntary self sacrifice,as In America—that was shown In the abstinence from wheat. Find more wheat. It came; moro pork. It came; snve sugar, it was done. So Americans answered the challenge of German starvation. Good will rules the new world ne> fear governed the old world. Through sharing food America helps make the whole world kin. Food control made sufficiency from shortage, kept the rein on food prices, gave the nation's full snength exer cise. Starvation by Germany challenged all the .world; food consgrvatlon In America answered the challenge. Food conservation In America h&e been the triumph of Individual devo tion to the national cause. _ Stomach Trouble.
