they volunteered for dangerous service.

bave been an Intensive food conserva

WHAT THE VICTORY OR
DEFEAT Of GERMANY
MEANS TO EVERY AMERICAN
(Contributed by ALBERT PAYSON
TERHUNE. author and globe-trotter,
to ;the National Security League's
campaign of Patriotism Through Edu
, Germany's victory would mean all
that the alarmists have said the set
back of humanity, democracy, civiliza
tion, rights of man, etc But, to Amer
ica, it would mean Infinitely more.
It would mean oar -first national de
feat; and, thus, would smash our per
fect record for vlctorles a record as
. old as our nation a record that, means
more than the right to brag. Even as
a beaten army never wholly regains its
old form even as a beaten ring cham
pion sinks at once into desuetude so
our nation (its traditions of victory
gone) would suffer far worse deteriora
tion than the mere fact of defeat could
r It would mean that the man who has
risked all in his country's struggle for
Right could never again feel his former
calm certainty that Right must tri
umph. Thus, the moral tone of the in
dividual, as well as of the nation,
would Inevitably be lowered.
This country has never embarked In
a war of conquest From 1775 to the
present we have fought for Liberty or
for Union or for the Oppressed ever,
for some sterling principle of right.
From childhood we have been taught;
to believe that the high unselfishness
of our war aims has given us the vic
tory. We have seen the decay or de
struction of men and nations that have
battled for dominion as Germany Is
now battling. Should we fall In this,
our mightiest war for the Right, the
average man must lose forever the
simple Faith which has led our dear
country from nothingness to its pres
ent estate. For that Faith, more than
for. anything else, our sacrifice Is a
hundredfold Justified. - ..

Great Wheat Stocks
It's the shortage In ships that
is putting the Allies and the
United States on wheat rations.
Great stocks of wheat are iso
lated in India, and Australia. At
great sacrifice in ship space and
use the Allies are forced to se
cure some wheat from Argentina.
On January 1 Australia bad
stored. 100,000,000 bushels of
wheat that was ready for ex
port but there were no ships.
Then came the new crop with
an exportable surplus of 80,000,
000 bushels. Now Australia has
approximately 180,000,000 bush
els waiting for ships.
India, at the same time, had
70,000,000 bushels of wheat
Btored for export During April
50,000,000 bushels more out of
the new crop will be added to
Argentina closed the last ship
ping season with 11,000,000
bushels of wheat left In the
stock available for export The
new crop will add 185,000,000 to
the left over.
It Is not a problem that the
wheat does not , exist in the
world It Is entirely a problem
of shipping, which has thrown on
America the obligation of divid
ing our stock with the Allies.

urged to divert some of their energy
from their own interests and help

Brownlow Jackson, county chair
man of the war savings stamp com

ship chairmen have assured him that
they will raise their quota and he ex
pressed the assurance that the full
quota would be raised and that Hen
derson county would go over the top
without a hitch.
The quota for Henderson county is
$357,000, of which only 10 per cent
has been raised up to the present
time. This is a pledge campaign
rather than a campaign to secure
cash money. The pledges will be
taken during the next week and the
privilege of paying for the stamps at
any time during the year will be
given. Under this plan every one will
be benefitted 'and the stamps will be
