Sugar Shortage Real Blessing as U. 5. Tightens Belt to Save (By AMOflatrd lrens.) New York, Nov. 16. The sugar shortage is a blessing in disguise, ac cording to a bulletin isued tonight by te Department of Public Health of the American Museum of Natural History. "The American people are beginning seriously to attack the problem of tightening their belts to save food for their allies," said the bulletin. "They are realizing also that most of the necessary changes in diet are not only economic, but positive gains from the standpoint of hygiene. "Sugar is a food which contains a high proportion of energy. In fact, it yields more calories per unit of cost than any other food. It gives us, however, practically nothing but energy, since it contains no protein and none of the mineral elements which are so essential. The same is true of butter and other fats, and a diet too largely composed of these substances may lead to a real deficiency in necessary food material for body building. "If, therefore, we take advantage of this crisis to reduce our habitual consumption of sugar, replacing it by vegetables and fruits, we shall not only be helping in the great task of winning the wary but also be forming better health habits for the future." u$3 Banquet Is Waste;" Patriot Declines Feed Chicago, Nov.

While committers were still working long hours on the 165 resolutions submitted tor consideration at the 37th annual convention of the American Federa tion of Labor, the delegates had an other day of oratory in which speak ers from two nations allied W'ith the United States counselled international co-operation of labor in the nation's war plans. John Hill and Arthur Hayday of the British Trades Union congress and William Lodde of the Canadian Trades and Labor congress told how the rank and file of their organiza tions had been battling for democ racy in the trenches and in the work shops. ' The resolution on a labor supply commission was introduced by Vice President James A. Duncan. "We suggest," ope section reads, "that for the purpose of carrying out the agreement in an effective manner an emergency labor supply commmis sion connected with the Department of Labor independent of the United States Civil Service commission, com posed of three or five members, on which commission union labor shall predominate, be appointed, with au thority to decide questions arising and to appoint deputies where and when, in their judgment it becomes neces sary, the understanding being that as far as practicable the detail work shall be done by the union. Said emer gency labor supply commission shall exist until the labor problems caused by the war are readjusted after the war is over and the fighting force de mobilized." A favorable report on the resolu tion is expected. New York Anti-Suffs Close Up Business New York, Nov. 16.

A resolution adopted reaf firmed the principles of the antis, but announced the members' inten tion of working with men for the best interests of government. c an the Aolsh R evi ussia? Strangle Free No hopeless view of the Bolsheviki uprising in Petrograd is taken by American editorial observers, although it is frankly recognized that the plan for a separate Russo-German peace might help solve Germany's food problem and release many German soldiers from the East ern front. In the view of an' Associated Press correspondent, just returned from Petrograd, however, the uprising gives the Bolsheviki the rope with which to hang themselves, and this view is shared by the well-informed Russkoye Slovo, a Russian dailv published in New York. "The Bolsheviki "may occupy all the palaces and strongholds of Petrograd," remarks this Russian journal, "as they did during their insurrection last July; they may impose their will briefly upon the members of the government and claim control of the capital, but they can not dominate for more than a brief period, the indignant, loyal forces of the Russian nation." For a clear explanation and understanding of the causes leading up to, and the possible outcome of, the overturning of the Kerensky government you should read THE LITERARY DIGEST for November 17th. By direct quotation from leading journals, American and for eign, the reader is able to obtain a clear knowledge of all the facts in this very critical juncture in the world's war. Other subjects that will claim your interest in this number of THE DIGEST are: ' Germany Thinks America "Worthless" as a Military Power Sarcastic Comments of the German Press Upon America and the American Army New York's Return to Tammany Torpedoing the Yellow Peril The Food-Problem in Europe Why We Catch Cold Pipe That Will Not Break Catapulting Seaplanes Prison-Camp Verse Sixty-five Years in One Pastorate India's Viceroy Indorses Home Rule News of Finance and Commerce Suffragists Take New York State Showing the French How to Unload Ships Rebuilding Ruined French Towns Our Husky City Boys The Boston Symphony and Patriotism Another Tagore r.
