One of the large problems of the reconstruction period is the feeding and maintenance of these starving in habitants of the countries of the near east. In calling upon the people to sup port this drive President Wilson 4,000,000 Armenian, Syrian, Greek and other war sufferers in the near east will require outside help to sus tain them through the winter. Many of them are now hundreds of miles from their homeland. The vast ma jority of them are helpless women and children, including 400,000 or phans. The American committee for relief in the near east is appealing for a minimum of $30,000,000 to be sub scribed January 12-19, 1919, with which to meet the most urgent needs of these people." The quota for Latah county has not been fixed. There is to be a meet ing of the county chairmen of north Idaho and eastern Washington, at It is estimated that about the Davenport Hotel, on Friday, Jan. 3rd, for the purpose of organizing and laying plans for making this drive, which will start Jan. 12th.

This lias been made possible by the whole souled co-operation of the people, who, besides practicing self-denial, have speeded up production and re sponded nobly to the appeal from abroad. Food Administrator Hoover, in a letter to President Wilson, gives a brief summary of the results of food conservation in the United States and of the activities of the Food Admin istration to this end. The conserva tion measures have been put through practically on a voluntary basis which is regarded as a splendid tribute to the patriotism of the American people. Meat shipments were increased 844, 000,000 pounds during the first fiscal year, as compared with our meat ex ports during the year before America entered the war. "The total value of these food ship ments," Mr. Hoover wrote President Wilson, "which were in the main pur chased through or with collaboration of the Food Administration, amount to, roundly, $1,400,000,000 during the fiscal year." In 1916-17 the United States sent the Allies 2,166,500,000 pounds of ment. In 1917-18, with voluntary con servation practiced in America, and aided by extra weight of animals, we sent the Allies 2,pil,100,000 pounds of meat, an increase of 844,600,000 pounds. Wheat Saving Enormous. When the Food Administration be gan operations in the summer of 1917, rids country was facing a large deficit In wheat. Counting in all carry-over wheat from the 1916 crop, we had at the beginning of the 1917 harvest year just enough wheat to take care of America's normal consumption,—not a bushel of surplus. At the close of the 1917-18 harvest year the Food Administration's official reports showed that our total wheat shipments to the other side had been 141,000,000 bushels, shipped was ^ wheat saved by the American people from their normal consumption. In cereals and cereal products re duced to terms of cereal bushels our shipments to Allied destinations were 340.800,000 bushels, 80,900,000 bushels more than the amount sent in 1916-17. Included in these figures are 13.900, 000 bushels of rye and the 141,000,000 bushels of saved wheat. In addition we sent the neutrals dependent on us 10,000,000 bushels of prime breadstuffs. "These figures do not fully convey the volume of the effort and sacrifice made during the past year by the whole American people," the Food Ad ministrator wrote. "I am sure that all the millions of our people, agricul tural as well as urban, who have con tributed to these results should feel very definite satisfaction that In a year of universal food shortages in tlie Northern Hemisphere, all of those people joined together against Ger many came through to the new har vest, not only with health and strength fully maintained, but with only tem porary periods of hardship. "It is difficult to distinguish be tween various sections of our people— the homes, public eating places, food trade, urban or agricultural popula tions—In assessing credit for these results, but no ope Will deny the dom inant part of the American women. Every bushel a SUGAR SHORTAGE HITS SPAIN AND PORTUGAL In Spain and Portugal sugar prices are soaring. Both countries have been seriously affected by the short beet sugar crop In Europe and the lack of ocean tonnage to move stocks of cane sugar Isolated In far away ports. Granulated sugar, home grown, was being sold in Barcelona, Spain, during the early summer at 19 cents a pound. The price eff brown sugar in Lisbon, Portugal, fixed by governmental order, was $1.04 to $1.12 a pound. By comparison the price of beet sugar in Sweden is 14 cents a pound.

There is produced about 800,000 tons of beet sugar and 250,000 tons of cane sugar in Louisiana. The total consumption of the United States is about 4,500,000 tons of raw sugar, which makes about 4,250,000 tons of refined sugar. If our coasts were blockaded as Germany's now are, we would have available for the use of the people of the United States only one pound of sugar for every four we use. Under such circumstances there is no doubt that the American people would get along on this limited supply without complaint. The United States Food Administration is asking every American household to use not more than two pounds of sugar per person each month for domestic use. Reducing our sugar consumption here means that we will be able to help supply the needs of France, Eng land and Italy. Sugar conservation on the American table also means conservation of ships. The Army and Navy have sent out an "S. O. S." call for ships. "Save Our Ships to Transport Troops and Munitions to France, in order that we may keep the fight ing front where it now is and not allow it to extend to our own homes," is the message. There is ample sugar in the world for all require ments—in fact, there is a large surplus, but on account of the ship shortage it is not available for use in this country. Java, which produces 15 per cent, of the world's cane crop, ; s too far removed. It requires 150 to 160 days for a ship to go to Java and return. of Clyde Campbell Not Dead.
