USING UP REDWOOD
8upply in the United States Will Ba
Gone In a Century.
Conntantly tncreasinK production of
redwood lumber In Humboldt county,
California, means that In less than a
century the only commercial redwood
forest In the world will be stripped
bare, according to compilations made
by Oenrne A. Kellogg, secretary of the
Humboldt chamber of commerce. In
J8JI5 It was estimated thnt the stand
ing redwood timber In the county
would be sufflilent for 200 years, but
since that time the capacity of the
mills has been more than doubled,
w-lth prowpecu for a continuous In
crease In the future. t
Out of r38,WK acres of redwood tim
ber standing untouched before lum
bering operations were begun In the
country, DS.WO acres have been cut
owr. This cut represents some of the
best timber of the county, for the bot
tom lauds atonic the rivers where th
best timber stands have been harvest
Redwood lumber thus far produced
from the forests of the country ha
represented a value of $180,317,237 and
has totaled 9.3n0.8fl5,K26 board feet
HELPS PAY FOR BREAD
There baa been much uilsunder
atandlng about the bread program In
England. It Is true that the English
man buys a loaf of bread for less than
an American can, but it Is poorer
bread, and the British government Is
paying fl!00,0oO,000 a year toward the
cost of It
All the grain grown In Great Hrlt
ala la taken over by the government
at an arbitrary price and the Imported
wheat purchased on the markets at
the prevailing market price. This Is
turned over to the mills by the govern
ment at a price that allows the adul
terated war bread loaf of four pounds
to sell at 18 cents, the two pound loaf
at 9 cents and the one pound loaf at 5
In France, under conditions some
what simitar, but with a larger ex
traction, the four pound loaf sells for

FACE the FACTS
LET us face the facts. The war situation is critical.
Unless the Allies fight as they never yet have
foujrht, defeat threatens. Hungry men cannot fight
at their best; nor hungry nations. France, England,
and Italy are going hungry unless we feed them.
Wheat Savings They must have wheat It is the
best food to fight on. It is the easiest to ship. We
alone can spare it to them. By saving just a little
less than a quarter of what we ate last year we can
support those who are fighting our battles. And we
can do it without stinting ourselves. We have only
to substitute another food just as good.
The Corn of Plenty Corn Is that food. There's a
surplus of it. Providence has been generous in the
hour of our need. It has given us corn in such bounty
as was never known before. Tons of corn. Train
loads of corn. Five hundred million bushels over and
above our regular needs. All we have to do is to
learn to appreciate it. Was ever patriotic duty made
so easy? And so clear?
America's Own Food Comt It is the true American
food. The Indians, hardiest of races, lived on it.
Our forefathers adopted the diet and conquered a
continent. For a great section of our country it
has blong een the staff of life. How well the South
fought on it, history tells. Now it can help America
win a world war.
Learn Something Corn! It isn't one food. It's a
dozen. It's a cereal. It's a vegetable. It's a bread.
It's a dessert. It's nutritious; more food value in it,
dollar for dollar, than meat or eggs or most other
vegetables. It's good to eat; how good you don't
know until you've had corn-bread properly cooked.
Best of all, it's plentiful and it's patriotic.
Corn's Infinite Variety How much do you know about
corn? About how good it is? About the many
delicious ways of cooking it? And what you miss
by not knowing more about it? Here are a few
There are at least fifty ways to use corn meal to
make good dishes for dinner, supper, lunch or break
fast. Here are some suggestions:
Corn-meal molasses cake.
Apple corn bread.
Boston brown bread.
Corn-meal croquettes. Corn-meal fish balls.
Meat and corn-meal dumplings.
Italian polenta. Tamales.
The recipes are in Farmers' Bulletin 5G5, "Corn
Meal as a Food and Ways of Using It," tree from the
Department of Agriculture.

company that the new work would be
taken up soon under the direction of
the Pan-Amerlcun Wireless Telegraph

If the plans of the new company are
not hampered by lack of labor, steel
and other supplies needed for the con
struction of the new high-power sta

No sites for the stations to be built
In the system have been decided upon
yet, but officials of the company said
today that the North American sta

where land lines radiate to ull parts
