KelJgious Authorities Say It Is Duty of All Not Serving the Col
ors to Desert Ranks of the Benedicts.
New York, April 9. That the cler
gy of the United States should follow
the principle of those adopted by
Great Britain shortly after the war
started and use their influence to in
duce the men not already enlisted to
marry and thus help perpetuate the
race, was the opinion expressed by
several high authorities who gathered
at the Waldorf here tonight.
While it was shown to be an an
thropological fact that a race pro
duced by the more mature type of
men would undoubtedly be creatte
of a more brainy, intellectual species,
it was pointed out that a sturdier, har
dier and more physically-perfect type
is usually produced by a younger
generation; and it was urged that
care be taken to prevent, as far as
possible, the progeneration of an un
desirable, puny element,, and to pre
serve, if possible, the standards of
"the survival of the fittest" theorem.
Several speakers contended that
there was no sound reason whatso
ever to presuppose that children born
of men up to the age of forty years
would be productive of a race of phy
sical weaklings, and others maintain
ed that the race would be materially
benefitted by the induction of a more
mentally-matured parenthood.
Anaemics and weaklings are not
wanted by Uncle Sam, as experience
has amply demonstrated that men
without sufficient red blood in their
systems fail to develop the proper de
gree of mental and physical power to
prove valient leaders.
Run-down, thin, emaciated crea
tures are no longer wanted either in
the army or civil life. Men of strong
vitality and fully-equipped physical
power and samina are now required
whether in the battle of business life
or the more hazardous life of leading
men "over the top" in the Flanderian
The human system requires a cer
tain dergee of iron to properly replen
ish the blood and tissues of the body,
and the food of modern civilization
is such that eighty per cent of the
populace lack the proper amount of
this necessary organic sulphate.
Thus we behold a race of prema

victims, with begoggled, lack-lustre
eyes and faltering step, instead of a

for the home team, was as nervous as

completely up in the air. The first

three Greeneville runners had romped

Messrs. Froehling and Robertson,

"The combination of the mineral
constituents of A-I-M shows a most
valuable preparation. It contains in
addition to the large amount of iron
sulphate, a very desirable quantity of
aluminum sulphate and smaller
amounts of magnesium and sodium
sulphate. In our opinion the possibil

a universal panacea we would ex

this medicine. We would suggest its
use in all cases of anaemia and gen

The Greeneville Daily Sun,
Ctats Food Administrator Appeals to
Loyal Tennesaeans To Abstain from
Using Wheat Flour and Give All To
Feed Allies and Troops in Francs.
Nashville. Through the county food
administrators of more than half ol
the counties of the state, Dr. H. A.
Morgan, federal food administrator la
Tennessee, has Issued an appeal to
the people of Tennessee to turn over
J.0 the government, for the use of its
army and navy and Its allies, all the
wheat flour that they can posslblv
spare. This flour will be paid for at
a fair market price to be fixed by Dr.
Morgan, after conference with thoss
who are familiar with price conditions
It Is expected that the merchants of
the counties will finance the proposi
tionthat Is, they will pay for tl
flour as It is turned in, and then they
will be reimbursed when the flour it
loaded on cars for shipment to thi
United States grain corporation.
In making this appeal Dr. Morgan
said: "The people of Tennessee can
spare from their stocks of flour, I am
sure, a carload or two for our govern
ment, In this crl'8, without making a
very great sacrifice. It would not in
convenience us very much if. we
did without flour altogether until the
next harvest. In Grimes county, Tex
as, nearly everyone responded to th
appeal, and three carloads went for-
ward. We can do the same thing
The hoarding of wheat will not be
tolerated by the food administration.
There is now, in the Judgment of Dr.
Morgan, no reason why any farmer In
Tennessee should continue to hold his
wheat. A list of those who still have
wheat on band has been secured by
the food .. administration, and where
they will not respond to appeals to
their patriotism the wheat Is being
taken over under requisition papers,
as provided in the food contol act
One farmer had 2,000 bushels and re
fused to part with it, and requisition
papers were Issued and the wheat
taken over for the government.
To Abstain From Wheat
Following a numner of inspiring ap
peals from eloquent speakers, the
women war workers of Tennessee to
the number of more than 1,000 assem
bled at the capitol at Nashville,
adopted a resolution pledging them
selves to abstain as far as practica
ble from the use of wheat flour prod
ucts until the next harvest, and In no
event to use during any one inon'.b
mors than one and one-half pounds of
wheat flour per person, the same to
be carefully weighed. At a meeting
of the district demonstration agent
and war workers at Chattanooga a res
olution that went even further was
unanimously passed pledging absolute
abstention from the use of wheat
products until the next harvest, and
declaring that each person present
would seek to Influence others to
make the same resolution.
The meeting of district agents and
women war workers at Chattanooga
was a decided success and the mem
bers pledged enthusiastic co-operation
in all of the war activities. J I. Fin
ney of Columbia represented the
United States Food Administration,
delivering a strong appeal to the wom
en for consecration and service to the
nation In this crisis.
On the call of the war emergency
council of the National Bakers and Dr.
H. A. Morgan, federal food administra
tor, the bakers of Tennessee to the
number of about 40, representing all
sections, from Bristol to Memphis, as
sembled at the Commercial club in
Nashville and perfected a state organ
ization by the election of Charles K.
Evers of the American Bread com
pany, Nashville, as president. The
bakers were addressed by Dr. Mor
gan and J. I. Finney of the food ad
ministration. Full co-operation with
the food administration was pledged
and a technical committee of five
nominated to act with the food admin
istration in the interpretation of rules
and regulations governing the bakers
of the state. A number have Joined
since the organization and it is now
representative of that Interest.
Patriotism of Hotels.
Five of thai leading hotels of Chat
tanooga have voluntarily gone on a
wheatless ration until the next har
vest, having agreed to eliminate all
wheat products froni their menus
Houston R. Harper, hotel represent
tive of the food administration in Ten
nessee, is confident that a large num
ber of hotels In other places in the
state will make a similar resolution.
At a meeting held at Chattanooga the
hotels of the state were organized and
full and hearty co-operation pledged
to the food administration in the ex
ecution of its rules and regulations.
MaJ. Rutledge Smith's efficient work
as r.hairaan of the council of defense
of Tennessee has been recognized by
the council at Washington and he has
been asked to bring the organizations
of other southern states up to the
high standard of that of Tennessee.
It is generally conceded at Wash
ington that Tennessee has one of the
best war organizations In the Union.
Not only have the heads of all the war
organizations made good, but theft
work has been materially aided by the
cordial co-operation that they havs
received from Gov. Rye, heads of
state departments and the city and
county officials of the state. The gov
ernor has been especially active Is
war work and la always at the com
mind of any of the war organizations
far an service Utat he can render.

Explain New Wheat Ruling to
Thousands of Customers In
sures Greater Food Saving.
Grocers of the nation have accepted
enthusiastically the 50-50 basis for the
purchase of wheat flour and are doing
their utmost to explain the new regu
lation to the housewife. This ruling by
the U. S. Food Administration requires
each purchaser of wheat flour to buy
one pound of cereal substitute, one
kind or assorted, for every pound of
wheat Cour. It was necessary to re
strict the use of wneat flour In order
that the allies and our, fighting forces
abroad might be assured of an ade
quate supply of wheat to meet their
vital needs. This supply must come
from our savings because we have al
ready sent our normal surplus.
Wheat saving pledge cards were for
warded by the Food Administration to
all retail food merchants, and these
are being signed and posted in stores
throughout the country. This card
states, "We pledge ourselves loyally to
carry out the Food Administration pro
gram. In accordance with this order
we will not sell any wheat flour except
where the purchaser buys an equal
weight of one or more of the following,
a greater use of which In the home
will save wheat:
"Cornmeal, corn flour, edible corn
starch, hominy, corn grits, barley flour,
potato flour, sweet potato flour, soy
bean flour, feterita flour and meals,
rice, rice flour, oatmeal, rolled oats and
buckwheat flour."
Some confusion has resulted on the
part of the consumer In construing
this -50-60'; ruling to mean that an
equal amount In value of substitutes
must be purchased with wheat flour.
This Is a mistaken Idea. The ruling
states that the consumer In purchasing
flour shall "buy at the same time an
equal weight of other cereals."
One exception to this ruling Is con
cerning graham flour and whole wheat
flour, which may be sold at the ratio
of three pounds to five pounds of
wheat flour. This provision Is made
because approximately 25 per cent
more of the wheat berry la used In the
manufacture of these flours than stand
ard wheat flour., ,
Another exception Is that concern
ing mixed flours containing less than
50 per cent of wheat flour, which may
be sold without substitutes. Retailers,
however, are forbidden to sell mixed
flours containing more than 50 per
cent of wheat flour to any person un
less the amount of wheat flour substi
tutes sold is sufficient to make the to
tal amount of substitutes. Including
those mixed In flours, equal to the to
tal amount In wheat flour in the mixed
flour. For Instance, if any mixed flour
Is purchased containing 60 per cent
wheat flour and 40 per cent substi
tutes It Is necessary that an additional
20 per cent of substitutes be pur
chased. This brings It to the basis of
one pound of substitutes for each
pound of wheat flour.
A special exemption may be granted
upon application in the case of special
ly prepared Infants' and Invalids' food
containing flour where the necessity la
Some misunderstanding seems to ex
ist on the part of consumers In assum
ing that with the purchase of wheat
flour one must confine the additional
50 per cent purchase to one of the
substitutes. This Is not the case. One
may select from the entire range of
substitutes a sufficient amount of each
to bring the total weight of all substi
tutes equal to the weight of the wheat
flour purchased. For Instance, if a
purchase of 24 pounds of wheat flour
Is made a range of substitutes may be
selected as follows :
Cornmeal. 8 pounds; corn grits, 4
pounds; rice, 4 pounds; buckwheat 2
pounds ; corn starch, 1 pound ; hominy,
2 pounds ; rolled oats, 8 pounds.
These substitutes may be used In
the following manner:
Cornmeal, 8 Pounds. Corn bread, no
flour: corn muffins or spoon bread,
one-fourth flour or one-third rice or
one-third hominy; 20 per cent substi
tutes In whole bread.
(Virn Starch, 1 Pound. Thickening
gravy, making custard, one-third sub
stitute In enke.
Corn Grits, 4 Pounds. Fried like
mush, used with meal In making corn
Hoilpfl Oats, 8 Pounds. One-fourth
to one-third substitutes In bread, one
naif substitute in muffins; breakfast
porridge, use freely; oatmeal cookies,
oatmeal soup.
Buckwheat Flour, 2 Pounds. One
fourth Hubstltute In brVad. buckwheat
cakes. ,
riomtny. 2 Pounds. Bold for din
ner, baked for dinner, with cheese
Rice, 4 Pounds, One-fourth snbstl
tuts In wheat bread, one-third substi
tute In corn bread, boiled for dinner (a
bread cut), as a breakfast food, to
thicken soups, rice pudding Instead of
cake or pie, rice batter cakes.
Several grocers have stated that
their customers who strictly observe
the 11 wheatless meals each week find
It necessary to buy substitutes In ad
dition to those ordered under tie &
f0 plan.
Great Wheat Stocks
Zft the aborts Li ailr that
la putting the Allies and the
United States en 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
stored for export During April
50,000,000 bushels more out of
the new crop will be added to
the pile,
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 135,000,000 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.

A general Idea of the quantity of
food sent to European allies by the
United States from July 1, 1914, to
January i,' 191S, is given by figures
Just announced by the U. S. Food Ad
ministration. In that period the Unit
ed States has furnished complete j-airly
rations for 57,100,933 people, la
addition there was enough extra pro
tein to supply this portion of the diet
for 22,104,570 additional mon.
The total export of wheat and wheat
flour to the three principal allies is
equivalent to about 384,000,000 bushels.
Pork exports for the years amount
ed to almost 2,000,000,000 pounds. Ex
ports of fresh beef, totaled 443,484,400
pounds. The amount of food crported
to Russia Is negligible compared with
that sent to the western allies.

supplies of men, food, and mate
