AVERTED EUROPEAN DESPAIR. With Military Demands Upon Ocean Shipping Relieved, World Is Able to Return to Normal White Wheat Bread. Since the advent of the latest wheat crop the only llmitatioa upon Amerl can exports to Durope has been the shortage of shippinag. Between July 1 and October 10 we shipped 85,980.305 bushels. If this rate should continue until the end of the fiscal year we will have furnished the Allies with more than 237,500,000 bushels of wheat and Sour in terms of wheatt The result of increased production and conservation efforts in the United States has been that with the cessa tion of hostilities we are able to re turn to a normal wheat diet. Supplies that have accumulated in Australia, Argentine and other hitherto inacces sible markets may he tapped by ships released from transport service, and European demand for .erican wheat probably will not exceed our normal surplus. There Is wheat enough avail. able to have a white loaf at the com mon table. But last year the tale was different Only by the greatest possible saving and sacrifice were we able to keep a steady stream of wheat and flour mov Ing across the sea. We found our selves at the beginning of the harvest year with an unusually short crop. Even the most optimistic statisticlans figured that we had a bare surplus of 20,000,000 bushels. And yet Europe was facing the 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 of the year we had managed 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. 000,000 bushels before July 1 could he take the responsibility of assuring his pIeople 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 we actually shipped 141,000,000 bushels. Thus did America fulfill her pledge that the Allied bread rations could be maintained, and already the American people are demonstrating that, with an awakened war conscience, last year's figures will be bettered.
