Goess the 12th. of September

on the streets of New Orleans
for about one hour after which
we were invited to a treat for the
remainder of the day. At night
we were invited to private homes
for supper. You can imagine a-

AMERICAN families would have less sugar than the
people of war torn France, if we depended entirely
on oor home-grown sugar stocks.
Approximately 75 per cent of our engsr is shipped
to our shores. We produce about 1,000,000 tons of sugar
a year. Our imports from abroad amount to over 3,000,
000 tons a year to normal times.
The United States Food Administration asks eseh
family to limit its use of sugar to two pounds per month
per person for household use. The military situstion de
mands that every available ahip be placed at the disposal
of the Army or Navy. When we save sugar, we save
