THE GREAT DUTY.
As wo go about our daily tasks in
peace and safety men are dying every
minute on the battlefields of Europe
to save civilization. Our own gallant
soldiers are shedding thir blood in
France and our sailors engulfed in
the waters of the Atlantic as they go

Upon our performance of the work
committed to us depend the lives of
thousands of men and women, the
fate of many nations, the preserva
tion of civilization and humanity it
self; and the more efficient and
prompt we people of America are in
doing our part, the more quickly will
this war come to an end and the
greater the number of our soldiers
and sailors who will be saved from
death and suffering and the greater
number of the people of other na

POTATOES AND PATRIOTISM.
By eating potatoes Instead of wheat
the people of the United States can
help win the war. We have not
enough wheat for the allies and our
selves if we are to continue at our
normal rate of consumption. We
have an abundance of potatoes.
Wheat flour Is a concentrated food
andtherefore good for shipping; po
tatoes are bulky and are consequently
not suited for limited shipping space,
nor aretbe allies so short of pota
toes as of wheat. Next to cereals,
potatoes have been in this country,
the mainstay of starchy food, which
The more potatoes we eat, the less
wheat we need. A medium-sized
potato weighing about 3 ounces,
supplies about aa much starch as
two small slices of wheat bread
one-half inch' thick. In other re
spects also the potato measures up
well with wheat bread and even has
the advantage ovqr it in supplying
certain salts which the body needs to
counteract the acidity resulting from
the use of such foods ,.as" cereals,
meat and eggs. By.' exercjslrig her
ingenuity the housewife can prepare
potatoes in, many different attractive
ways, thus Increasing their "proportion
In the family diet, and conserving
wheat and other staples needed for
shipment abroad. An important use
of potatoes also, is in the. '.mixing of,

to fully ten per per cent, may be used
without detracting either from its

How is America interested In the

suits of this war? Well, first, we are
at war. Germany believes that peace

a Germany victorious. That means a

Against that German ideal we are
fighting. But we are also fighting
to save the Americas from the "next
step" in German Imperialism. In tho
first year of the war, the one great
fear expressed by German officers was
that a long war in Eurore would
cause America to wake up." Wake
up to what? Not to the need of
American participation in the war.
Tho German officers thought America
negligible for this war. But they did.
nd do, fear that America would
awake to the danger to herself, her
ideals, her Institutions, her Interests.
and that being awakened, Germany's
next step in world domination would
be harder than the present one. ,
