OUR SAVED FOOD
FED m ALLIES
Fcod Administrator Writes Presi
dent America Conserved 141,
000,000 Bushels Wheat
CREDIT DUE TO WOMEN.
Meat and Fat Shipments Increased by
Conservation measures applied by
the American peopfe enabled the Unit
ed State to ship to the Allied people
and to our own forces overseas 141,
0rt),000 bushels of wheat and &44.GH0.
000 pounds of meat durin; the past
year, valued in all at $l,400,0X),Ot.
This was accomplished In the face of a
serious food shortage In this country,
bespeaking the whotehenrtedness and
patriotism with which the American
people have met the food crisis abroad.
Cood Administrator Hoover, in a let
ter to President Wilson, explains how
the situation was met The voluntary
conservation program fostered by the
Cood Administration enabled the piling
up of the millions of bushels of wlieut
during 1917-18 and the shipment of
meat during 1917-18.
The total value ot nil food ship
ments to Allied destinntlons amounted
to $1,400,000,000, all this food being
bought through or hi collaboration
with the Cood Administration. These
figures are all based on official reports
and represent food exports for the
harvest year that closed June 30, 1018.
The shipments of meats and fats
(Including meat products, dairy prod
ucts, vegetable oils, etc) to Allied des
tinations were as follows:
Cisco! year 1018-17... .2,106,500,000 lbs.
Flscul year 1017-18. ...3,011,100,000 lbs.
Increase 844,600,000 lbs.
Our slaughterable nnltnnls at the be
ginning of the last fiscal year were not
appreciably larger than the year be
fore and particularly in hogs; they
were probably less. The Increase In.
shipments Is due to conservation aud
the extra weight of animals added by
The full effect of these efforts begnti
to bear their best results In the last
half of the fiscal year, when the ex
ports to the Allies were 1,13.1,100,000
pounds, as agnlnst l,2Gt,.ri00,0O0 pounds
In the same period of the year before.
This compares with an average of
801,000,000 pounds of total exports for
the same half years in the three-year
pre-war period. i
In cereals and cereal products re
duced to tortus of cereal bushels our
shipments to Allied destinations have
been : ' i
Fiscal year 1910-17.. 2."0.!h)O,0OO bushels
Fiscal year 1917-18. .340,800,000 bushels !
Increase 80,000.000 bushels :
Of these cereals our shipments of
the prime breadstuff In the fiscal year
1917-18 to Allied destinations were:;
Wheat 131.000,000 bushels and of ryt
13,900.000 bushels, a total of 144,900,-j
000 bushels. !
The exports to Allied destination
during the fiscal year 1916-17 were:;
Wheat 135,1(X1,000 bushels and rye
2,31)0,000 bushels, a total of 137.4O0.Oik)
bushels. In addition some 10,000,000 1
bushels of 1917 wlieut are now In port ;
for Allied destinations or en route!
thereto. The total shipments to Allied '
countries from our last harvest ofj
wheat will be therefore, about 141.0t.t0.- j
000 tnshets, or a total of 134,900,000
bushels of prime breadstuffs. In atl-i
til I ion to this we have shipped some
10,000,000 bushels to neutrals depend-!
ent upon us, and we have received
some Imports from other quarters. !
"This accomplishment of our peopia
In this matter stands out even more
clearly If we bear In mind that we hnd

from net carry-over and as surplus1
over our normal consumption about
200,000,000 bushels of wheat Which w
were able to export that year without
trenching on our homo loaf," Mr.
Hoover said. "This last year, however,
owing to the large failure of the 1917
wheat crop, we hud available from net
carry-over and production and Imports
only Just about our normal consump
tion. Therefore our wheat shipment
to Allied destinations represent ap
proximately savings from our own
'"These flgureshowever, do not fully
convey the volume of the effort and
sacrifice made during the past year
by the whole American people. De
spite the magnificent effort of our agri
cultural population In planting a much
increased acreuge In 1917, not only was
there a very large failure In wheat,
but also the corn failed to mature prop
erly, aud our corn Is our dominant crop.
"I am sure," Mr. Iloover wrote ta
concluding his report, "that all the
millions of our people, agricultural as
well as urban, who hare contribute
to these results should fet! a very
definite satisfaction that In s year, of
universal food shortages In the north
