"I have not lost a son; I have given

Food Administration and Agriculura
Authorities Urging Greater pro.
duction No Restrictions on Seed
Raleigh. The : FoojJ Administration
and the state and national agricul
tural authorities are combining in a
drive to increase the wheat acreage
in North Carolina this fall. There was
a very considerable increase in wheat
acreage in this state last fall but it is
expected that the response of patri
otic farmers of the state this year
will be greater than ever. It is a
well-known fact that wheat grower in
North Carolina received last year and
are this year receiving a higher
price than the wheat growers of any
other state in the Union, the average
price for wheat in the state at this
time being probably above $2.35 per
bushel, notwithstanding the poor
The Food Administration and the
Bureau of Markets have interested
themselves in locating seed wheat,
and the Food Administration in addi
tion has suggested to the flour mills of
the state that they give the growers
in their immediate territory assist
ance, in locating and financing pur
chases of seed wheat.
The Food Administration has an
nounced to farmers having sound,
plump seed wheat that there are no
restrictions regarding the sale of such
wheat for planting purposes, either
as to purchaser or price.
One factor that promises to in
fluence an increased acreage of
wheat is the policy of the Food Ad
ministration in giving preferential
treatment with regard to flour con
sumption to wheat growers. Wheat
producers are allowed to have their
atire season's suply of flour ground
at one time and are allowed to figure
their requirements on the basis of
12 pounds per person per month,
whereas the voluntary rationing sys
tem for non-producers of wheat in
town and country is 6 pounds per per
son per month. ...

SMILE AS THEV
GO INTO BATTLE
Spirit of American Soldiers in
France Described by Red
CHEERFUL . AND CONFIDENT
Each Believes if He Doesn't Get Into
Action on Time Fight Will Bo
Lost What American Wom
en Are Doing.
South Bend, Ind. Kathryn Carlisle,
daughter of Charles A. Carlisle of this
city, has been In France for a long
time doing Red Cross work.
She has written' a most interesting
and thrilling letter to her parents, a
letter that should stimulate Red Cross
work throughout the world and give to
our soldiers in the trenches, on the fir
ing lines and in camp, their, mothers,
sisters, sweethearts and friends at
home fresh hope and assurance that
the American women are doing mag
nificent work in their behalf.
Here Is what Miss Kathryn says:
I wish everyone at home, particu
larly the loved ones of our fighting
men, could see "our boys" as they go
into battle. It's the proudest moment
of life and the grandest. Oh! how
brave and splendid they are, with a
smile on their lips. "Good-by." "We
will see you soon again."
We feed from four to five thousand
some days. Our canteen is always
Of course that compliment is our
greatest reward. We all try and want
to do for "our boys" the very best.
They come and go at all hours of the
day and night. Our Red Cross, can
teen is never closed. All of "our boys"
on this line of communication stop and
rest and have their meals and refresh
ments at this Red Cross canteen.
Want to Push on.
We always know, among the very
first, when a big drive is on, and then
we never seem to sleep. Nobody wants
to. "Our boys" don't even care to stop
long and rest ; they want to push on.
Everyone of these blessed men feel
that if he falls to get there on time
and at the very second when called
into action the fight will be lost, and
Here Is a toast one of our brave offi
cers left with us. It expresses the at
titude of "our boys" to us perhaps bet
ter than any word of mine:
"To our women, who sent us forth
with courage in their hearts and tears
in their eyes.
"To our women at home who are sac
rificing all that we may win.
"To our women over here who give
their own lives that we may live.
"God bless them, and damn the man
thatdoes not respect them and the
coward that does not protect them."
"Our boys" mean every word ex
pressed, and no woman was ever more
thoughtfully considered and protected
than we of the American Red Cross
who serve "our boys" at the front.
Over 5,000 American trucks, all
heavily laden, have passed our front
door In this last big drive. Every man
in charge came in for rest and refresh
ment and a little chat with one of his
native tongue, then with the smile of
the soldiers and a wave oil the hand in
farewell, "Good-by until we meet
After every battle and at Intervals
we see "our boys" coming back.
Blood soaked, weary, but oh ! how
brave, "our boys," with bayonet and
shell wounds will tell you quickly and
firmly, "I am all O. K," "I can wait,"
"Look after Jim there," or "Look after
this lad; he's gassed." The pity and
the brutality of that horrible gas !
Get Best of Care.
Every American father and mother
can rest In full assurance that if their
boy comes in anywhere along the line
the most thoughtful, considerate 'and
efficient care is given to him immedi
ately. "Our boys," of course, come first,
but in behalf of humanity, and the
love of Christ, we never say or do
anything to a wounded enemy, and we
see them by the hundreds, that any
one could criticize. The American
Red Cross is here for service, and it
renders the best, day and night, to
everyone that comes.
While it's work, . hard work, and
work all the time, we get a lot of it,
and the sun shines just as brightly
over here on the firing line as .at home.
Every day is a new one and its ups
and downs fill up the time.
A splendid general came in the oth
er day and he was a sight. His clothes
were white with dust and his face
black for want of a shave. The can
teen was packed U was one of our
busy days. The general wanted to
shave and wash up before eating, and
the only spot vacant and available was
the small private dressing room used
exclusively by we American women.
We excluded all the women, put the
general in our private dressing room,
with hot and cold water, and on the
outside of the door we wrote a note
and pinned It up, reading :
"BEWARE Girls stajout. The gen
eral Is shaving."
When our guest finished and came
out he saw the sign, and doubtless
read it with amusement, because he
wrote just below It, as follows:
"Girls, your guest has finished. Many
thanks to God's greatest gift to man
an American woman."
