Many enquiries as to what to useplentiful
for hay this summer are being tasked.
There is little of the clover seeded last
year that has made a stand and the
-question of feed for another winter is
a serious one Corn is no doubt the
cheapest feed even if only fodder corn.
As a hay crop millet might be used but
is not as sure a crop here as oats. We
believe that oats cut on the green side
to be the best available hay crop this
year. The quality of the hay will be
greatly improved with the addition of
some field peas and a mixture of the
two we believe the best possible.

Week's Food Fact
If there existed many town in this
country such a things as a woman
clasping a half starved child in herwere
arms while she gazed at the body of
her husband who had been torn from
their home and shot merely to carry
out the doctrine of terribleness, there
would not be a single person in that
town who could sleep or eat until he
or she had done something actual and
definite to help. *We have that condi
tion right with us not only in Belgium
also in the Allied countries and
our part is to give these people the
food they must have. Things have
reached a point where we are either
definitely for or against. If we areprofit
for these people who are giving all
they have in the world to keep the
Teuton spirit from having its way in
the world, then we will remember
them at every meal as definitely as if
we had the privilege of sharing with
them at Our own tables.
The newest fighting corps in Minne
sota is composed of potatiiots. Its
purpose is to spud the kaiser and the
ranks are now open for enlistment.
The reason for effort right now to
increase potato consumption is that
the food bins are heaped with potatoes
as the result of an appeal to people
generally last year for increased potato
production and because of congested
railroad conditions last winter that
made distribution impossible.
Potatoes are one of the best wheat
sawng foods, and with the absolute
necessity for reducing our wheat con
sumption to the minimum and of elim
inating wheat from our diets entirely
if possible until after the next harvest,
there is nothing that we can turn to
with greater safety than the potato
and it's here at your sen ice.
"The potato has done it's bit by us,"
A. D. Wilson, federal food admin
istrator for Minnesota, "it is our duty
now to do our bit by the potato The
potato, grown through patriotism
should be eaten through patriotism
With limited supplies of so many other
fowl articles. potatoes which are
should not be permitted to go
to wastftan they will go to waste if
the great quantity of them in this
state are not used within the next few
weeks. So eat potatoes now is one of
the best forms of patriotism. Wheat
is needed in the front line trench 'over
there', let potatoes serve as the home
guard 'over here.'
Food dealers of the state hold a
point of strategic importance in thegranted
work of food saving. Once the food
articles pass over their counters and
into the consumers hands, they are lost
to the possibility of saving for ship
ment across the sea.
The food administration wants the
co-operation of the food dealers be
cause of this fact, and because this is
war time and the dealers should realize
that in the ordinary sense they are no
longer independent concerns, they are
or should be in the service of the gov
"The kind of co-operation most de
sired," says the state food administra
"is not the kind that obeys rules'
and regulations because compelled to
do so, but because it is an opportunity
for service to the great cause. The
kind of service that means the most
to us is the volunteer service. In mak
ing the world's food supply go around,
we do not want to be compelled to re
sort to conscription either with food
food dealers or with individuals."
REPORT TO SURGEON GENERAL
SHOWS HEALTH CONDITIONS
GOOD IN ARMY CAMPS.
The health of troops in the United
States continues very good, according
to a recent report to the Surgeon Gen
eral of the Army by the Division of
Field Sanitation. Admission, non
effective and death rates are somewhat
higher than in the last report, due
chiefly to precalence of influenza and
bronchitis with complicating pneumon
ia, in many of our northern camps.
National Guard camps, as a group,
continue with remarkably low rates.
Veryfew new cases of measles and
meningitis have occurred.
National Army camps continue to
have high sick rates as compared with
camps of other groups, though the
rates are lower than last report. Scat
tering cases of measles are reported
from all camps.
The scenes were actually taken
in Russia and it took ten months
to complete them.

WAR DEPARTMENT PLANS
FURLOUGHS TO HELP
For the purpose of augmenting agri
cultural production it is the intention
of the War Department to grant fur
loughs to enlisted men to enable them
to engage in farming during the pres
ent season. Commanding officers may
grant such furloughs within prescribed
rules whenever it appears they will
contribute to increased farm produc
Furloughs may be given by coniA
manding officers of posts, camps, can
tonments, divisions and departments.
They will be for short periods, largely
for seeding and harvesting time.

A short wheat crop needs careful distribution. Reserves
swept bare last July. Energetic milling and supervised dis-
tribution relieved that scarcity in September and since. More-
over, Allied necessities have been fairly met month by month.
A crop which on pre-war consumption promised only 10,000,000
bushels surplus for export, has furnished in nine months 100,000,-
000 bushels, after importing 22,000,000 bushels.
Americans, sinking their wheat flour preference and even
paying higher prices for substitutes, did that. Patriotic con-
sumers respond to national service call! So will the American
farmer! So will the grain dealer and miller! Some trade papers
say that grain dealers may not cultivate farmers' wheat market-
ings because larger profits offered in handling other grains. Is
motive the only stimulant in free America?
Three months yet to feed our own people. Three months yet
to continue the stream of wheat flour to valiant BritainFrance
Italy. Our Allies use every possible substitute, and yet require
some wheat flour to bind their cereal loaf.
These needs must be met. Farm retention of wheat hinders.
A National need requires every American to make common cause.
The American people will not tolerate preferential supplies or
hoarding on the farm or elsewhere.
21,000 grain dealers and 6*000 mills reach the grower. We
enlist them in national service. Explain what has been done and
what yet remains to be done. JJrge the marketing of wheat re-
serves. That is your assignment in Home Service.

influence answers"Present and ready!"

For specially qualified experts in
agriculture furloughs may be granted
by the Secretary of War upon applica

providing such furloughs are "volun

Individual applications for furloughs
submitted by relatives will be on a
form to be furnished by local draft
boards. Two sections are to be made
out and presented to the local board,
which will complete the form.

Furloughs may be granted en bloc to
men who are willing to accept them,
upon requests of farmers, when time
consumed in traveling from the post

farmers will use a form of the Provost
Marshal General's office, also going to
the local board.
THE American people fought their first
battles for liberty and therightsof self
government one hundred and forty-two
JAt that time, and for many years thereafter,
their realization of their national aspiration! and of
the goal toward which they were really striving
was vague and indistinct. But step by step they
struggled onward and upward toward alight which
grew clearer as their eyes and minds slowly opened
to its significance. Today, as a result of their strug
gles and their sacrifices, we possess and enjoy our
priceless American institutions.
J These institutions must be preserved. The
structure so laboriously reared in these one hun
dred and forty-two years will be utterly destroyed
if we do not spring to its defense with every atom
of our energy and determination. This is not a
situation which may be trifled with, or evaded, or
put off. It is one which must be met nowtoday
no matter what sacrifices it may entail, or what
the cost may be.
