AMERICAN families would have less sugar than the
people of war torn France, if we depended entirely
on our home-grown sugar stocks.
Approximately 75 per cent, of our sugar 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 in normal times.
The United States Food Administration asks each
family to limit its use of sugar to two pounds per month
per persoii for household use. The military situation de
mands that every available ship be placed at the disposal
of the Army or Navy. When we save sugar, we saye

draft ages are extended, and it also
was announced that the suggested
date, September 5, would not be
the day for the registration of men
from 18 to 45, even if congress pass
es the bill in time' because several
of the largest states hold primary
elections on that date.
The provost marshal had no in
tention, it was said, of creating
registration dates for men reaching
21 throughout the year, but the
present registration was made nec
essary by the approaching deficien
cy of man-power.
There wiU be no new drawing to
establish the order of liability of
the new registrants. The provost
marshal general's office announced
tonight that the 1200 numbers
drawn for the June 5 registrants
would be sufficient to cover the Aug
ust 24 registrants in the " largest
district in tfie country.
