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

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

reports showed that our total wheat

shipments to Allied destinations were

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

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.

O VER 75 per cent, of the sugar used in the United
States is delivered by ships. 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
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

cane crop, ; s too far removed. It requires 150 to 160
