Word's greatest Soldier.
Physically, Forh Is n Utile mnn, his
Inches are about those of Napoleon,
and ho has O runt's fondness for the
cigar. Like Joffre, a southerner, he
baa frankness of speech which his old
commander baa never displayed. Un

his allies. An old mun, close to sev

was still handsome when the war be

Voluntary Basis of Food Saving
Showed Heart of America
Beat True for Freedom.
To ttif voluntary service and sacri
fice of the American people must be
attributed the ' continued heulth,
strength and morale of the Allied ar
mies and the civil populace.
Upon this spirit of Service and sac
rlnVi will depend Europe's fflle tn t
months to come. In the past year we
have carried, CUT an export program,
the uiagnitnde of which Is almost be
yond comprehension. Iiut with the
new demands tlmt have come, with
the liberation of nations freed from
German oppression, our exports mast
be almost doubled. Instead of 11,820,-
000 tons, we must ship twenty million
tons of food to Kurope In the coining
year as much as can be pushed
through our )orts. '.
IX the Allies had not been fed by
America. It would have been Impos
sible for them to maintain their de
fease agulnst Germany.
Meeting this world need on a purely
voluntary basis, the American people
have conclusively proved that democ
racy la a success ano that In time of
need It will rise to Its own defense.
If there were no other accomplish
ment to Its credit the very fact that It
has shown the strength of democracy
has In Itself more than Justified the
existence of the Food Administration
la the eyes of the world.
Less than four months after the
United States declared war the United
States Food Administrator expressed
his determination to meet America's
food problem on a basis of voluntary
action and reiterated bla confidence
that awakened democracy would prove
"Many thinking Americana," aald
Mr. Hoover, "and the whole world
have been watching anxiously the hut
four months In the fear that demo
cratic America could not organize to
meet autocratic Germany. Germany
has been confident that It could not be
done. Contrary proof la Immediately
at our door, and our people have al
ready demonstrated their ability to
mobilize, organise, endure and prepare
voluntarily and efficiently tn many dl
rectlona and upon the mere word of
Inspiration aside from the remarkable
assemblage of our Army and finances.
The history of the Food Administra
tion baa clearly shown that the trust
of Uiose who put their faith In democ
racy has not been misplaced. . . -
Proper Disposal of Flaga.
"Old and wornout flags should be de
stroyed as a whole, privately, prefer
Wily by burning. Do not cast them,
aside or use them in any way that
blight be thought disrespectful to the
Bag, says the adjutant general oi tne
rjnlted states army.'
; Sight Not to Be Forgotten.
' When one Is fortunate enough to see
a line of swans etched upon the sky
near sunset, a mile or more high, as
has been my luck but twice in my life,
one hns seen something he will not
soon forget. John Burrougns.
