The State Food Administration lays
emphasis on the fact that the military
situation does not form any adequate
reason for any relaxation in food oon
serration. "The evacuation of French
and Belgian territory by the Germans
simply meant that we have additional
civilian population to feed," declared
Mr. Page. "Even if peace should
come within the next few weeks or
months it would mean a greater de
maad than erer upon the food supplies
of this country because when peace
comes there are starving "iTtfVns m
