Why the World's Herds Are Ie creasliur. The general policy of European na tions h to reduce these herds by slaughter of their animals to an ex tent far beyond their annual produc ! tion. It Is obvious that the number of their animals which it is necessary to support by Imported fodder re quires shipping for their support far in excess of the tonnage thitt Mould extent, their possible production of bread grains. Heyund this the diver sion of millions of men from produc tion tor war and the oeciea." in fer-?- ) tilizer all contribute to a reduction , in production of animal foods. All together from the viewpoint of our Hies who observe the constant shortening of shipping, a moyt likeiy policy is to eat th.'ir animals u rid thus have room to produce more bread grains at home and to increase their imports of meat products, from abroad. liy so doing they can make better use of the shipping facilities.

The Waits burg game was a loss also. Mr. Drill said t hat no more games would hi Kuropc's Shortage Ever More Serious. This encroachment Into the herd, for reasons stated, will go on with In creasing velocity as long as the war lasts. Prior to the war our western allies have always imported a consid erable amount of animal product. S me . person mlnbt assume that this encroachment upon the herd would satisfy the total imports. Such is not the cae. It becomes a mollification of both factors. For instance. Kuro peans have always relied, to a consid erable degree., upon the Fnlted Stutes for pork uroducts. and If they slaugh- had halted the tered the larger portion oi their hogs they could still net supply their de mands for fats. More especially is "this true because the Imports of fat products of one kind or another from the neutral count ries surround Inq Oermnny to the allies are constantly diminishing from one political reason after another. All lc l!eef situation. In the matter of beef, it appears to me (hut t he allies can. by suffi cient encroachment Into tbo herd support themselves wit hout any con sequential expansion of imports from the I'nited states during the period that the slaughter in carried on, hut there arc limits to even this. Eu rope, so far as It Is able, must pro- serve Us milk herd, for the vital ex istence of a' nation depend upon Its supply of fresh mill;. In any event, the large amount of nmghatre in every country makes this posslMf to some degree without the use of concen trates. So on the beef side it is im possible and undesirable o slaughter to an extent that encroaches upon the milk herd, for when that point Is reached all luriher supplies of beef; must be imports!. It is useless to shrishtpr beef in such an emergency under, say. -years of age. and the mcroachnu'Mt into the cattle herds f one ally is limited practically to the killing of mostly male animals alx-ve l ear- of age and of t ho useless milk ani mals. If the war com inucs long enough this point of slaughter will ic reached amongst others, and tin1 lime will 010110 when we will be rnllod up on to find large quantities of beef be fore the war is over, although for the next few months the demand f--r bee'" may not be so heavy upon us. Ilor Problem Is ;rurM. The pork problem is one nt of the deepest concern, but a hogs lend themselves to ! ;i jid crease. It Is a mutter for hope of id sol i it ion.
