The increase in the monthly allot- ? ntent of sugar from 2 to 3 pounds per capita per month must not be taken as meaning that the conserva- i tion of food stuffs is not now fully as important as it was at the height i of the food shortage." declared Coun-i XX Food Administrator M. C. Pleas- \ ants to a,_Franklin Times reporter to- j day. Mr. Pleasanta continued. "While the sugar situation has im proved. largely due to the splendid aid of the American housewife in re ducing consumption, and also by the , availability of new domestic cane and i Ieet sugar. ?/?? ne? *r greater ex-' ports in otitr ti: as M no less ma 1 The United St a ?? j;t increase /?o! .ved exporM by one-half from a har vest no larger than last year's . The prominent part which the A merican woman has played in con serving sugar is best understood by a comparison of our consumption of sugar during the past four months with the consumption for a similar, period in normatt"ttmes. Normal con-' sumptions of sagar for the months of J^ly, August September and October was approximately 400,000 pounds, per month, or 4,600,000 pounds for j the four months. Following the ap peal for sugar conservation there was ' saved approximately 300.000 pounds 1 during that period of thiB year. Sev- i enty per cent of the sug&r consume* i In the United States is u4fed in the i home. j Last spring when we had only',2*.- , )00.000 bushels of wheat for export i above our normal requirements, the * American ~peopTe~made sacrifices by | saving that enabled fls to send 130,.

Help the tyoy*. The following letter is timely and should be read by all: To all the people of Franklin County: The news la coming to us every day of the death or wounding of some of our Franklin County boys. They are making the supreme sacrifice, thoy are going West In a cause that is glor ious, they are dying as men. I had rather be a Sam Hoddic or Willie Ma con or any of the other boyB that are being killed or wounded on the blood soaked hills of France than to be ? slacker as some ire and walk the streets of Ixjuisburg. These meu will go down in history as not worthy of the name of a man, while Sam and Willi? ami the rest will go down in history as God's noblemen. There kre other ways of hoing a slacker than merely not going to the war, am I a slacker In not doing my duty at home, are you do ing yours. Today we are In the midst of a drive to raise money to sc ;ry thing in the way of comfoit mr won lifted boys. Aro we goin lot the love of money keep us from v ing to this noble cause? I for one *in not going to be a slacker in this and 1 know you are no* Let uh pile r;> an amount In Franklin County that will surprise every one. Our boys Urea are at stake, we m ist Respond. There is not a man womr.n or child In Frank lin CoUnty who cannot give something. i let us see the right w nd et its come 8f s. Our oim ish blood arc 'ng help In V-v nee today. .. Yoi iceroly, - T W.
