COPELAND, Secretary. ' T-f-O CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Commander Evangeline Booth, lead er of the Salvation Army in the Unit ed" States, has been suddenly called upon to furnish 800 additional far work women for France. The request is contained in a report just, receiled by her from Col. William A. Barter Of the Salvationist forces, whom she sent to France over a year ago to fes tablish hutment and general war re ief work with the American troops. "We will do all w can to fill tills demand," said Commander Booth wl en discussing the approaching Uni ed War I Work Campaign, "and the m ed itself should impress the Amerii an public all the more with the absolite necessity for sustaining and enlarg ng the war relief work of the seven or ganizations, besides the noble Bed Cross, now merged for a drive for funds. Each Is a vital cog in a vlist machine for human relief, and each! is lndispensiDie, serving its particular elements in its own way. .

Perhips that accounts in some degree for the success our .work has attained auditor which We are thankful. ; "We are of the common people, dnd we toil on a practical basis. We learn ed the lesson of how to do it fn tbe Boer war, when we stood at the fade of Britain's troops and weathered It out to the end. We have been tised by fire, and the mothers and. fatlfera of America, as In other countries, tifust the Salvation Army to do the tling they would like to do for their mef if they but had the chance. .

The fact tfat the people of the Cnited Stategwere able to reduce by more than onp-half million tons their July, August, September and October consumption ftf sugar proves conclu sively that tirjiir war conscience was thoroughly affakened an,d that the country as a hole stood ready, to fol low the injunMibns of the Government. Our normalconsumption of sugar in the four-monb period beginning with July has beeRl.400,000 tons per month, a total of lffiOO.OOO for the quarter ear. 1 ; In July, wHen our sugar stringency began to rean its height, consunjtion was , reducedfto. 260,000 tons. In 'Au gust only 32?,000 tons went Into dis tribution andD in September only 279, 900 tons. Inl October the distribution fell to 230,001; tons. If the genfral public" had failed to observe the injunctions of the Food Administration this country would have been ijj the throes of a sugar famine befogs the end of August. Our visible supples were so low as to bring great anxlet;f to those familiar with the sugar siiatlon. They feared that it would beR absolutely Impossible to reduce con saaption to a point where sugar woul(3no longer be a mere lux ury In the .erican-'diet , ' FfjW accomplishments of the Food Administratfen will stand forth so pre- domlnantly s this reduced consump-; tlon of suga, By it we have been able to bridge oVr the period of stringency until the het4r beet and Louisiana can sugar cropsvcre in sight. i- -: 1 1 Now the jfation is in a position so that if we hoose we may return to our normalj?home use of sugar, and Europe, wit the release of ships to 0 far afield, vn maintain its recent re stricted raraons.

Upon this spirit of service and rifice will depend Europe's fate in months to come. In the past year we have . carried out an export progf am, the magnitude of . which is almost be yond comprehension. But with! the new demands that have come; with the liberation of nations freed from German oppression, j our exports must be almost doubled. Instead of 11,820, 000 tons, we must ship twenty miflion tons of food, to Europe In the coming year as much as can be pulhe through our ports, j If the Allies had not been fee by America, it would have been in pos sible for them to maintain their de .fense against Germany. Meeting this world need on a pi relj voluntary basis, the American people have conclusively proved that de noe racy Is a success ana that in tims of need it will rise to Its own defense. If there were no i other accomplish ment to its credit the very fact that it has shown the strength of democracy has lit itself more than justified I the existence of the Food Administration in the eyes of the world. Less than four months after United States declared war the United States Food Administrator expressed his determination to meet Ameri food problem on a basis of voluntary action and reiterated his confidence that awakened democracy would prove Irresistible. j "Many thinking Americans," said Mr. Hoover, "and the whole World havfc been watching anxiously the last four months in the -fear that dsmo cratlc America could not organis e to meet autocratic Germany. Germany has been confident1 that it could nit be done. Contrary proof is immediately at our door, and pur people havje al ready demonstrated their abilitjy to mobilize, organize, endure and prepare voluntarily and efl-clently in many di rections and upon the mere word of inspiration aside from the remarkable assemblage of our Army and finances."
