If| the American paopla want prohibition it should prohibit by legislation to1 that end and not forra the Food Ad ministration to tha responsibility for an orgy of drunkenness. It ia mighty difficult to get drunk on 2% per cent j hear; it will be easy enough if we; forea a substitution of diatilled drinks j for it. "The Food Administration has gone an far aa it can toward temperance without precipitating a worse situn tion. If the American people or Con gress will ntop the sale of ditftiHed liquors, the Administration will And no difficulty in (topping brewing." 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. n nn rrjfaru 10 orewinff, me alco holic content in b««r was reduced to 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, LK>0 bushel* per month, the grains used being barley, corn, and broken rice. "Theie is, of course, a great deal of rontention that the beer itself con suls the remaining food values. But imitting this, the cessation of brew Jig would effect a saving in grain of ippruximately 3,150,000 bushels a nonth, from a nutritive point of view, it needs no comment from me, from i food point of view, thai 1 should 'avor the saving of thi.; amount of train. "It does appear to me that the | oases in food are entirely secondary i o the moral and physical danger*. Phe President's letter indicates his celing in this particular. " You are probably aware that 1 lave been a life long believer in na ional temperance; on the other hand, j I is n purely administrative officer of he government, I have felt strongly hut I should not enter into any cont entions matters."
