THURSDAY, APRIL 11. 1018. t
Spring: cordons have had quite a T
pet hack in the last few days of cold ^
weather. Never mind! Warm sun- c
shine will come agrain, and you will 1
have all the thrills of dointr some- 1
thing: repeated. v
What man is there of you that can ^
not buy one Tliberty Pond? One dol- 9
lar a week for lifty weeks will turn j
the trick. Surely everyone can do y
that much towards backing: up the v
government. And while you arc back- y
inc up the government you will be j
teaching: yourself some valuable les- j
sons in self denial and economy. c
You can show your interest in your
schools by attending: the preliminary 1
contest at the Iliprh School this even- c
inc. This contest is to determine '
what boy and jrirl is to represent the *
school tomorrow in the Field Day con- ^
test. The boy winning: this evening: *
will he the orator to represent the
school tomorrow, and the grirl who
wins will he the one selected to recite
in the contest tomorrow.
Buy Bonds?do not wait for your Il
neighbor to act. To buy Bonds is the '
thing: to do. It is your imperative j
duty. Man and women of all occupations.
all who are filled with the f
spirit of patriotism?buy Bonds. It
is as little as you can do?lend Uncle %
Sam your money. He needs it; lend
it to him. If he goes down your mon- s
cy would be worthless. Yes, and c
everything else that you hold to be of c
^ value would be worthless. Buy Bonds t
and save yourself! \
UNITED STATES FOOD ADMIN- e
ISTRATION FOR SOUTH c
By eating potatoes instead of c
wheat bread, the people of South
Carolina can help win the war as well v
as bv purchasing Liberty Bonds and
contributing to the Red Cross. c
With this statement, the conserva- a
tion division of the Food Administrn
tion for South Carolina, announces
the "Potatoes for America, Wheat
for Europe" campaign in this State, h
The existing situation calls for 1
further curtailment of Wheat con- a
sumption, and there is no better sub- q
stitute, and no substitute for wheat a
bread that is to be had in such quan- u
titios, as potatoes. We have not
enough wheat for our Allies and ourselves,
but we have an abundance of 0
potatoes?an excess of 00,000.000 t!
1 u. hols over normal times. If we G
are to win this war the allied armies
and the allied peoples must have ^
wheat. The potato can not quite come
i;p to wheat in food value, but it does it
cnine about as close to taking the h
[dace of wheat as any other food. "
Py eating more pot itoes, therefore,
the people of South Carolina can save \\
more wheat to send to Europe.
Americans first realized how imV
port ant a part of their daily food the
potato played when last year a scar- n
city of this vegetable drove its price t<
almost to prohibitive hoierhts. When w
planting time came aprain, everyone ^
planted potatoes. The farmers were ^
particularly urged to plant potatoes c,
as a patriotic duty, and accordingly
there was an abundance of potatoes s'
At a time when the world is so vj
sorely in need of food?only in America
is there an abundance?it would w
be criminal to waste anything so import
ant as the potato. The pot atoes
raised through patriotism should be }ll
eaten through patriotism?substituted tt
for wheat bread to as great an ex
tent a? possible, and the wheat thug *'r
saved sent to Europe, because while m
the people of European countries con
ume in normal times about twice the i
mount of potatoes per capita as do j
he people of America, shippinp failities
are so limited that it is im,ossible
to ship the surplus of potaoes
abroad owSnj? to their bulk; also
iy reason of the fact that potatoes
lo not keep so well as the grains.
Neither are potatoes needed so much
"or the Allies as wheat, meat and
:ats. It should, therefore, be aecord;d
a privilege that we may eat potaoes
at home and release more wheat
'or the army and the people who are
ookinp: across the sea to us, dependntf
on us for their daily bread.
Potatoes have been such an interrnl
part of the dinner diet that peo>le
do not tire of them, nor is there
\eod of monotony in serving them,
rhere are more than a hundred ways
>f serving potatoes, and one way of
ising up some of the surplus supply
s the use of potato bread rather than
vheat bread. Many old-fashioned
>read-makers still cling to potato
east, and since the potato is rich in
tarch, less wheat flour is necessary
n order to form a stiff dough. The
tread made from potato flour is somewhat
darker in color and more moist
han that made from wheat flour; but
>y using it as an admixture, at least,
t would contribute much to the con.ervation
If the "Potatoes for America,
tVheat for Eurone camnaicn is to sue
;eed, the planting of sweet potatoes
>ecomes a very important matter at
his time, for sw'eet potatoes, like
rish potatoes, may be substituted for
)read to help win the war.
