BARREL DONATED BY WIDOW Sumner County Lr.dy Gives Half of Savings to Assist in Feeding Sol diers will Prosecute Viola tions in Eating Houses. Nashville. That th women of the state are a real tower of strength tc the Food Administration is proven al most daily. They have been among the foremost In the work both of in creased food production and conserva tion. Dr. H. A. Morgan, food admin istrator for Tennessee, estimates that 90 per cent of the food pledge cards In Tennessee were signed as the re sult of direct efforts of the women. The spirit of the women is shown in the case of the poor widow In Sum ner county, who shortly after the flour hoarding rules were promulgated, called on Ccunty Administrator Hunter ar. said: "I have two Varrels of flour, fie result of my labor and savings last summer. It will run me until next harvest But I have come to tell jou that our nation needs it taore than I do, and you can hive one barrel fo the government: I will keep the oth er." There were no strlrgs tied to her donation. She insisted on glvl-g the flour to her nation that it xnigut be used to provide for the brave soldiers and sailors who have gone from us O fight our battles of liberty. This spirit Is In marked contrast with that too often manifested by full grown men who oMect to the llma tlons imposed on th3 amounts of wheat flour that they may obtain. On the whole, however, the people take the ttA regulations in that spirit of de votion and sacrifice that Is character istfc of the people of Tennesses. Speakirg of the new MmltM'ons o the amount of flour that distributor can let any one hTe, Dr. Morgan sal-. "I fully realize the fact that these re strictions will cause some hardship in the country, where farmers must m many miles over rough roads to mill at frequent intervals. But their sac rifice is small Indeed .as compared with that we have asked the farmers sons to make in polng to the battle front to offer their lives for our lib erties." There is no option upon the part o! any public eating place in the matter of observing; the conservation pro gram of the food administration. The time for voluntary action has passed and acting under instructions from tho United States Food Administration at Washington, Dr. Morgan,, the food ad ministrator in Tennessee, has an nounced that all v'oTatlons upon the part of public eating places will be punished. Especial attention will be given to the enforcement of the wheat conservation regulations. Public eat ing places that serve customers more than one and a hai: pounds of wheat Hour altogether during the week will be dealt with. Increased Egg Production. The wisdom of the order of the TJ. S. Food Administration forbidding thi slaughter of pullets and hens for mar ket until May 1 ha already been dem onstrated in the lately lacreased egg receipts at all marketing places in the state. This invalu- ole article of food is going into the markets in a volu-fau never before known, and despite slumps in price the producers have received more monry for their spring eggs than ever before in the history of the nation. By lolding their hens and pullets, the farmers have also re celved more profit from winter feeding cf these fowls than ever before War Gardens. The Food Administration, through every agency at ifs command, is en couraging the planting of gardens. No market gardens pe-ticularly, but gar dens for the home use. In order to re u., fha frafionnrtfit.lon system of the Hit. - ( nation, already overburdened, as far as possible, the Food Aammisiruuu.-i asks the people of Tennessee to grow at home as many food products as pos sible. This servos a double purposp. It adds to the home food supply and at the same time sives larger trans portation facilit es for moving soldiers, munitions and equippage of war. Local Organizations. Only through efficient local organi zations can the Food Administration hope to function as it should in every section of the state. The state, food administrator must depend largely for the enforcement of regulations upon the county administrators. In turn., the county administrators are finding that in order to adequately police their counties and reach all of the homes they must have good community or ganizations. It is recommended thai wherever possible ttie school hous be made the unit of organiza tion, having as the head some ener getic and patriotic man or woman who will personally see that every food message goes into every home in that community. These communities shouli not only be organized for food conser- vation and food proaucuon, qui ioi ( every war activity. These community organizations are made to function in all Red Cross drlvetf, Y. M. C. A. cam- i t tKoffxr inn nflvlner stamns. fuel conservation and other war move ments. RED CROSS TO COLLECT CLOTK FOR BELGIUM Hoover Asks Davison's Aid In Work Of Relief Beginning March 18 and ending March 25, a seven day, nation-wide campaign will be carried on by the American ' Red Cross and the Commission for Relief in Bel gium to secure a minimum quantity of 5,000 tons of clothes for the destitute people of Belgium and the occupied portions of Northern France. At the request of Herbert Hoover, chairman of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, Henry P. Davi son, chairman of the Red Cross War Council, has granted the use of the na tional Red Cross organization for col lecting the needed clothing. As the commission has allowed most of its local committees to disband be cause of the financial arrangements made last June with the government. It has turned to the Red Cross for help. Where the local committees of the Relief Commission are still Intact, they will work side by side with the Red Cross Chapters. The practically entire exhaustion of clothing, shoes, and leather in occupied Belgium and Northern France and the shortage of these necessities in the world's markets are making it in creasingly diff.cult for the Commission to keep clothed and shod the unfortun ate neoDle in these territories. In ad dition to new material, g;lfts of used and surplus clothins, shoes, blankets, i flannel cloth, etc, are needed in large ! quantities from the people of the Unit ' ed States. The donaUons will be shipped at -nee to the Atlanta seaboard and sent jverseas for distribution.

This will ne cessitate building a Red Cross house in every army camp in the country and securing for each house a man who will keep in personal touch with every man who is admitted to the camp hospital, as well as a sufficient steno graphic force to handle the letters dic tated by these men and to keep their families constantly informed as, to their condition and progress. Col. William- Lawson Peel, General manager of the Southern division, has just received letters from W. R. Cas tle, Jr., director of the Bureau of Com munications, and from Harry B. Wal lace, assistant director-general of mili tary relief, explaining Secretary Ba ker's plan and asking for suggestions as to men in this division who are qualified for the positions of respon s'bility .at the camps.

The directors of the work, in the Red Cross houses will be under the au thority of the Red Cross Field Direc tors in the various camps, who in lurn are mnder the supervision of Z. Bennett Phelps, director of military relief for the Sou'thprn division. Secretary Baker says in his letter: "Since the American Red , Cross has already established in France, in ",.ccoriP.r,,1 w'th prmy order, a ser vice to keep families in America in ersonal tonch with their boys, ill -r wounded in the field, it is suggest ed that this service be extended to fhe camps 'n the United States.
