WHAT REALLY MATTERS.
' "The American people," says a
Food Administration bulletin, "must
ask themselves this question in re
gard to wheat What does it matter
whether we eat barley, corn meal, or
oatmeal bread, as compared with the
winning of this wa'r?
"We have suddenly come to realize
that it is not an easy battle to win;
mat there is even a possibility or a
war to be lost Every American
should face this possibility. .
"America must give and givo of all slBn,nB thc note as securlty for B,ah'
that she has. France has suffered K The defense set up the allegation
maa .. A,ilthat 0161-6 were outstanding accounts

And now our own sacrifices have be
gun. "We must make this sacrifice, count
for victory. We must give up' our
wheat to the allies.
As a military
weapon, wheat Is as valuable as gun-
powder; it is as necessary as shrap
nel. The necessity for limiting our
selves now to One and one-half pounds
ot flour per person per week, and even j
of goine without it entirely, must not
find us slacking. We have corn, oats,
barley and potatoes in plenty. Is go-!jn
tag without wheat too great a price
to pay for freedom? There can ' be
no question. What really matters is
to see that the armies are fed. It is
up to America, and America must
meet the crisis."
