Ccuamia.-If there is in South Car.
Olisa any community where prices of
Irish potatoes have not decreased to
a level which places this food within
the reach of all, by reason of the fact
the food dealers have not beens able
to secure potatoes at a wholesale price
which will permit of selling them at
lower retail prices, the Food Adminis.
tration is in position to inform such
dealers where potatoes can be secur
ed at prices comparable with the sur
plus stock in South Carolina at the
present time. A letter or postal ad

Columbia will bring this information
to anyone inquiring.
Potatoes are the most plentiful and
economical food that consumers can
buy at the present time.
SOUTH CAROLINA BOYS ARE
HELPING FEED THE WORLD
Splendid Work of Corn and Pig Club
Boys Forms Big Contribution
to Food Supply.
Columbia.-The report of L. L. Ba
ker, Supervising Agent of Boys' Club
Work in South Carolina, recently
made to Dr. W. W. Long, Director of
Extension Work in this State, a copy
of which has been received by the
Food Administration, illustrates in a
most forcible and convincing manner
how farmer boys can, on their own
responsibility, aid materially in the
production and conservation of food
at this critical time in the world's
history when the er.:ng demand of a
hungry, fighting v- ld is for more
and more food. As 'e same time, the
boys are earning :ney with which
to buy Liberty ion-'s, thus helping in
a double-barreled ir nner to help win
Members of the Corn Club in South
Carolina produced last year 26,813.21
bushels of corn at an average cost of
forty cents a bushel. the average yield
being fifty-three bushels to the acre.
Figuring corn at $2.00 per bushel,
which is conservative, the total net
profit, was $42,689.47. The total net
profit resulting from the Boys' Pig
Club in the State was $13.998.01. The
total net profits of South Carolina
farmer boys in these two projects for
the year was $56.687.48.
There is an effort being made to
more than double the membership of
the Corn and Pig Clubs during pres
ent year. Last year there were 1056
boys enrolled in Corn Club Work, of
whom, however, only 501 reported;
and 1,250 boys enrolled in Pig Clubs,
of whom only 856 reported.
To assure the success of the Corn
and Pig Club work in South Carolina,
the co-operation, encouragement and
support of the public-spirited citizgis
is necessary. For instance, last year
a number of bankers in different parts
of the' State helped by offering prizes,
and in th'is way thousands of dollars'
worth of pure bred pigs were brought
into the State, very materially~ adding
to the breeding stock of hogs. One
of the greatest difficulties has been
encountered in supplying the boys
with pigs. This splendid work of the
farmer boys of South Carolina has
formed a big contribution to the food
supply of the country, and it is a
work which offers opportunity for
many public-spirited people to lend
their aid. There will be more Pig
Club boys this year if the pigs to sup
ply them are offered-or the money
with which to buy pigs-and L. L.
Blaker, Supervising Agent of Boys'
Club Work, Bishopwille, S. C., who Is
in charge of the work in this State,
will be glad to hear from any one who
will aid the farmer boys in their effort
in greater production of food. Offers
addressed t~o the Chairman of Con
servation of the Food Administration
for South Carolina, Columbia, wA@ be
forwarded to Mr. Baker.
WOULD BECOME CLAY
EATER TO LICK THE KAISER
Secretary McAdoo Says It Doesn't
Matter What Strange Foods
People Eat Nowadays.
Columbia.-In the course of his ad
dtress, launching the third Liberty
Loan in South Carolina, William Mc
Adoo, Secretary of the Treasury, call
ed attention in his Columbia speech
to the great shortage of food, and said:
"The greatest thing needed is
wheat. We are all eating strange
breads composed of elements which a
short time ago no American ever
d eamed of. But what does it matter?
For my part, I'd become a clay-eater
to lick the kaiser. Save food. Save
for our Allies. You won't save un
less you economize. 1Economize and
you not only save food, but you also
save money which you can put into
the Liberty Loans and thus help win
the war in two ways."

Dear Editor:-I Shall appreciate a
small space in your valued Sentinel in
which I wish to make an earnest appeal
to our patrioticpeople who may read
I have noticed some startling figures
compiled by the government. It is es
timated there are 1,446,600 acres of the
best lands we have used to produce to
bacco. Of course this lies principally
in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee
and Kentucky. At the lowest figures
this area should produce enough corn to
make 29,000,000 bushels of meal or 3,
600, barrels of flour. We are asked to
save 21,000,000 bushels of wheat be
tween now and harvest time. This we
must do. It is our patriotic duty to do
so and no loyal American can grumble
at doing his very -utmost in conserving
food-stuffs for our heroic soldiers and
sailors at the battle front. I would like
to see the little fertile spots of our own
county that have been used to grow to
bacco converted into "roasting-ear
patches" just to help gain the victory
in this war.
There is no doubt many of our boys
appreciate the cigarettes sent them but
the time will come when a biscuit will
be more appreciated than a "duck."
I wonder, too, how many War Stamps
and Liberty Bonds could be bought
with the money America spends for
tobacco products. As tobacco is not a
necessary instrument in winning the
war, let's all discourage its production
and use till our army marches back
victorious. Mothers are sacrificing
sons, wives are giving up husbands,
boys are facing death clinging to duty
that we may still peacefully live in the
land of the free and the home of the
brave. Surely we, a freedom-loving
people, can sacrifice a few months
habitual pleasure and invest the sav
ings in War Stamps and substitute for
non-essential tobacco an essential food
product though we sustain a small finan

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 ar-e forcedl to se
cure some wheat from Argentina.
On January 1, Australia had
stored 100,000,000 bushels of
wheat that was readly for ex
port-but there were no ships.
Then camea the newv crop with
an exportable surplus of 80,000,
000 bushels. Nowv Australia has
approximately 180,000,000 bush
els waiting for ships.
Indila, at the same time, had
70,000,000 bushels of wheat
stored for export. DurIng April
50,000,000 bushels more out of
the new crop wvill be added to
Argentina closed the last ship
ling season with 11,000,000
butshels of wheat left in the
stock available for export. The
new crop will add 135,000,000 to
the left over.
It is not a problem that the
wheat dloes not exist in the
world --it is entirely a problem
of shipping, whleh has thrown on
Amer-iea the obligation of divid
lng our stock with the Allies.
