Iu a letter to Senator Sheppard,
leader of the prohibition faction in the
Senate he referred to an exchange of
rommunicationii between the Preai
dent and the Senator, and indicated
that the President held the name
view* as himself. He wrote:
"The wines produced in thin coun
try. are froir grapes of which a very
small proportion are available as table
or rmiHin grapes, and therefore the
stoppage of wine making would add
no consequential amount of food to
our national supplies. The conver
sion of vineyj'.rtln to other production
would not be likely so lon>? as there ia
prospect of resumption of wine mak
ing at a late date. The conversion of
these grapes to grape juke instead of
wine, as suggested, would add nothing
to our national food supplies.

2% per cant, and th« amount of grain
and other foodstuffs that could be
used has been limited to 70 per cent
of that used during the corresponding
period of the previous year, the effect
being to .stop any expansion of brew
ing and to reduce the fodostuffs con
sumed by 30 per cent. The actual
amount of grain being used in the
brewing of beers is at the present
time approximately 4,500,000 bushels
per month, of which approximately
30 per cent is recovered as cattle feed
and the loss, therefore, into the beer
is practically the equivalent of 3,150,

used being barley, corn, and broken
"Theie is, of course, a great deal of
