Sugar control has saved the Amer
ican public *180,000,000, Herbert Hoov
er, United States food administrator,
declared the other day.
He pointed out that sugar was sell
ing for 11 cents a pound last August
and that it would have advanced to 20
cents a pound, with the world short
age as a stimulus, had not the food
administration secured the co-opera-
tlon of the refiners and wholesalers
and fixed a sugar price that today en
ables housewives to buy sugar at from
8 ^ to 9 cents a pound.
“ Every 1 cent raise in sugar from
September 1 to January 1 means $18.-
000,000 to the American consumer,"
Mr. Hoover said. “ Numbers of gen
tlemen will tell you that 20 cent sugar
would have prevailed and the public
robbed of $180,000,000 this year if we
had not taken these actions." Later
Mr. Hoover called attention to the fact
that uncontrolled sugar advanced to
35 cents a pound during the Civil War.

Today the American public has been
allotted 70 per cent, of its normal sup
ply. Before the war the average nn-
riual household consumption here was
55 pounds a person. In England the
annual consumption during the war is
L‘4 pounds, and in France each person
is allotted a little over one pound a

found itself unable to maintain even
this ration," Mr. Hoover declared.

agreed to fill this demand nnd up to
December had shipped 85,420 tons. In
the meantime an appeal was made to
the American public to reduce its sug
ar consumption, and requests were
piade to distributors to supply the
confectionary and sweet drinks trade
with 50 per cent, of normal supply.
This tins been generally followed, al
though such regul itioiis were volun
tary, ns Hie food administration had
no authority to Impose them.”
American sugar stocks could be fill
ed to normal very soon if ships could
be sent to Java, where 250,000 tons of
sugar is waiting for shipment. But
the shipping situation is so acute that
the nation cannot spare the eleven
ships needed to transport this sugar,
it would take the boats oue year to
haul 250 000 tons. In the same time
they could be used for transporting
200,000 soldiers to France.
The food administration believes
that tlie American public will diminish
its sugar consumption by 10 or 15 per
rent, when it is made clear that such
sugar saving is a patriotic act and
when it is understood that there are
plenty of sweeteners available to take
the plr.ee of sugar, such as honey or

is. of course, used at home The East

While U boats made big inroads on
the world's shipping, France and Italy
ceased to be self sustaining in sugar
manufacture. England in the mean
time was cut off from German sugar—
1,409,000 tons a year—because o f the
war. The result has been that the al

Corn, America's greatest cereal crop,
is now moving rapidly to market.
More than 3,OUO million bushels— i
80 bushels for every man, woman and '
child in America—were raised in 1917.
It was a mighty crop. The actual in
crease is about 500 million bushels.
And this extra store of grain is com

Just as it hnpfieneJ in the Colonial
days, the War ol' the Revolution, and
the Civil War, corn has actually be
come the nation’s maiitstay.
In the entire list of America’s food
commodities there is no item that is
better than corn. In puddings, bread,
corn pone, nnd as homfaiy combined
with meat or eggs, corn is without a
peer. Housewives are fast learning
the large number of delicious dishes
that may he made with corn and their
families are benefiting by on increas
ed use of the cereal. Corn, more than
any other cereal, contains nil of the
elements essential to maintaining life
In order that the fighting men
abroad and in the army camps at home
may be fed, and in order that factual
famine may be kept from the nations
associated with \merica in the war,
the citizens of America are finding
corn products delicious and palatable
on "wheatless days" and glory in the
fact that “ wheatless days" here mean
more wlient for the war worn allied
nations In Europe.
England, France and Italy must he
fed from America's great storehouse.
They will get some com —especially
Italy—but most of their gmln ship
ments must be wheat. Their ability
to use corn is small coin pa red to the
facilities they have for using wheat.
And it is tiie opinion of officials in j
Washington that the present is no time
to try and change tHe eating habits of
America's greatest use of corn will
he in the form of corn broad and corn
meal, mixed with wheat tn the making
of leavened bread.
Mixed with $0 per cent, wheat flour,
corn monl can lie used in bread mak
ing, producing a loaf more nutritious
than bread baked with wi:eat alone.
