Upon this spirit of service and aac -1 rlflce will depend Europe's fate In the months to come. In the past year we i have carried out an export program, the mafeltude of which Is almost be yond But with the new demands that have come, with 1 the liberation of nations freed from German oppression, our exports must be almost doubled. Instead of 11,820,- 1(00 tons, we must ship twenty million tons of food to Europe In the looming year —us much as can be pushed through our ports. If the Allies had not been fed by America, It would have been Impos sible for them to maintain their de fense against Germany. Meeting this world need on a purely voluntary basis, the American people have conclusively proved that democ racy Is a success and that In time of need it will rise to Its own defense. Lf there were no other accomplish ment to Its credit the very fact that It I has shown the strength of democracy | has In Itself more than Justified the \ existence of the Food Administration i in the eyes of the world. . .nuc America could not organize to meet autocratic Germaay. (leriuany liau been confident that It could not be done. Contrary proof Is immediately at our door, and our people have al ready demonstrated (heir ability to mobilize, organize, endure and prepare voluntarily and efficiently In many di rections aWt upon the mere word of Inspiration aside from the remarkable ! Hsm-inliliige of our Army and flnancso." The history of the Food Administra tion lins clearly shown that the trust of those.who put their faith In democ racy haai not been misplaced.
