tbe campaign to prevent a war abort
ago of food by converting Into flour a
greater percentage of milled wheat was
made In an authorized statement by
Carl Vrooman, assistant secretary of

tion vu a 'war bread' basis."
He pointed out that, while tbe pres
ent milling standard In this country
converts only about 72 per cent of tbe
wheat berry Into Hour. England has
adopted an 81 per cent standard, Italy
80 per cent, Switzerland 80 per cent
and France 77 per cent, and all of the
belligerents are making bread from
wheat flour mixed with rye, barley,
corn and potato flour.

MOVE ON CAMBRAI
London, April 18. General Halg's
greatest thrust today waa toward
Cambral. Capture of the village of
Vlllers Oulselaln, nine miles south
west of Cambral, was reported by the
British 1 commander-in-chief. Im
provement of the British positions
around Lagnlcourt, about the same
distance to the west ot this pivotal
point In the Hlndenburg line, was
likewise achieved, he said.
By capture of Vlllers Oulselaln,
northeast of Epeby, the British have
pushed another wall of steel parallel
to tbe artery ot German communica
tions between Caiuibral and St. Quen
tln. Like Epehy, Vllleret, Ronssoy,
LeVerguler and Malsray, all of which
villages lie to the south, Vlllers
