MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER
The items of news telling of the
. planting of fall oats in various parts
! of South Carolina do not get space
> on the first page. They are of more
, importance, if less immediate inter.
est than most of the news that does
appear there. They give us hope
> that the people of the South are not
i deaf to the lessons of the past three
. years nor blind to the great obliga.
tions which confront them.
> For it is the South, as President
J Wilson declared last spring, which
J can do most to add to the food re'
sources of the nation. The South
has proved this already, moved in
. large part by a great patriotic im1
pulse, and finding itself as a result
' more prosperous today than ever in
its history. Less food is being
L brought into this section than at any
; time in many years. The South is
1 not only producing cotton to clothe
1 the world. It is learning to feed it
" self at the same time and is introducJ
ing new foods to the rest of America.
As yet, however, we have made on^
ly a beginning. We have not begun
' really to feel the strain of the times
in which we live. The farmers of the
" South have seen the predictions
1 which were made last spring as to
the world's need of food this winter
' fulfilled only too completely. Let
them be warned now that the need
' next year will be even more acute.
- Whether the war ends before another
harvest or not famine will . stalk
' through Europe a twelvemonth hence
unless America is prepared to come to
The News and Courier, understand,
: :s not preaching against the planting
of a big crop of cotton next
? spring. It never has done that. Even
i in the winter of ID 14-15 when gloom
was thickest it protested against the
absurd propositions which were
brought forward for limiting the cotton
acreage by law. South Carolina
must plant cotton next year, just as
it was compelled to plant cotton in
1915, dangerously uncertain as the
outlook then was. But South Carolina
must not plant cotton at the ex-'
pense of food and feed. There i
i are limititations within which, even
i at the present high prices of cotton,'
it is more profitable for the South
Carolina farmer to raise foodstuffs
than it is to raise cotton; and to do so
! next year will be besides the largest
possible contribution to the winning
of the war.?Charleston News and
NATIONAL ARMY WONT
GO TO FRANCE SOON
Washington, Nov. 10.?The possibility
that the first increment of the
national army will not be sent to
France for at least six months loomi
ed large today when it became known
that the allies' demands for food,
coal and iron are so strong as to forecast
use of afailable ocean tonnage
of her troops.
A decision on the question will rest '
, largely on reports expected soon from
. the American commission now abroad
and on figures being assembled by
Food Administrator Hoover to show
. the amount of grain and other food
products available for export in thi
United States and South American
flhll ntriiia I>l-,.aon? in,linnlinn<!
the food administrator believes, that
the food situation, particularly* In
England, France and Italy, will force
the United States to use its ships to
send food instead of soldiers.
l'lans for the second draft would
be affected by any postponement of
the removal of the first increment
from camps, but since the camps' capacity
is much greater than thoir
present assignments, it would not
be necessary to delay the draft until
the camps are actually emptied.
