EXPORT OF FOOD
GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF EX

EXPORT COUNCIL IS NAMED
Commerce Department Directed to
Administer Details.—President Is
sues Statement Outlining Country's
Policy.—No Curtailment of Trade.
I exports, authorized in a clause of the
I espionage bill, was assumed by Pres
ident Wilson with the appointment of
an export council comprising the sec
retaries of state, agriculture and com
merce and the food administrator. An
executive order creating the council
directs the department of commerce
to administer all details of operation.
A victorious conclusion of the war
can come, said the President in a
statement outlining the country's ex
port policy, only by systematic direc
tion of American trade.
"The free play of trade will not be
arbitrarily interfered with," he said.
"It will only be intelligently and sys
tematically directed in the light of full
information with regard to the needs
and market conditions throughout the
world and the neoessities of the people
at home, and our armies and the ar
mies of our associates abroad." —-
The first proclamation will require
the licensing of all coal and fuel ship
ments, including bunkers, and its pur
pose is to give the government first a
firm grasp on shipping. The second
will provide a system of licensing lor
every class of exports to the European
neutral countries, and is designed to
prevent supplies from reaching Ger
Every move under the act will be
made under presidential proclamation
Issued on the advice of the exports
council, which will meet every day to
discuss subjects of policy. The three
cabinet members and the food admin
istrator probably will name represen
tatives to take care of most of the
routine work. These men probably
will be Dr. E. E. Pratt, of the depart
ment of commerce; Lester H. Wool-
Bey, of the state department. Assistant
Secretary Vrooman, of the department
of agriculture, and a representative
of the food administration.
Licensing will be dose by the com
merce department's bureau of foreign
and domestic commerce, of which Dr.
Pratt is head. The bureau will be
expanded by the addition of about
three hundred employes. To cover the
cost of operation, Secretary Redfleld
will ask for $150,000 frem the Presi
dent's emergency fund and later will
ask of Congress $750,000 to carry the
bureau through the year.
Collectors of customs who are un
der the treasury department will be
charged with preventing unlicensed
cargoes from leaving the country.

EXCESS WATER HURTS ROADS
Cold Wssther Does Not Csuse Injury,
Ne Matter Whethsr Road Is
Earth, Qrsvel of Mscadam.
Water, not cold, is the cause of the
deterioration of roads In winter. Cold
weather does not In Itself injure roads
no matter whether they ore earth, i
gravel or macadam. In fact an earth
road will stand more traffic when It Is
solidly frozen than at any other time.
Excess water, however, Is always de
trimental to a highway. When cold
weather turns this water Into Ice, tho
damage that It does Is greatly in
creased. Ice occupies considerably
more space than the water from which
It Is formed, and every person who
has lived In a cold climate Is familiar
with the powerful bursting effect of
water when left to freeze In s con
fined vessel. The same action takes
place when a wet road freezes to any
considerable depth. It simply bursts
or, ss we generally term It In road
parlance, the road heaves. Later, when
the frost leaves, the road Is dlslnter
grated and ruts badly. If this process

the winter, a gravel or macadam road

Ing. In order to elpond on freezing,
these materials must contain or be

they contain the greater the expan

as the road remains frozen, the dam
age does not become apparent. Hence
the frequent and erroneous Idea that It
Is the thaw which Injures the road.
The Injury was done when the water
In the toad froze and the particles of
the road surface —broken stone, sand,
still fine particles of earth or clay—
were pushed apart by the expanding
power of the freezing water. The
thaw merely allows tho Ice to melt and
assume Its original volume as water.
The remedy Is self-evident. Keep
the water out of the road. The time
to begin preventive measures Is before
the rains begin. If the road goes Into

SECRETARY LUCAS RETURNS
FROM CONFERENCE AND
TELLS OF ACTION.

Raleigh.—More than ever convinced
of the absolute necessity of tho
South's raising Its own food and feed
stuffs/this year, John Paul Lucas, ex
ecutive secretary of the State Food
Conservation Commission, has return
ed to his office after attending the
conference held at Waahlngton at the
Instance of the Federal Trade Com
mission for the consideration of the
production, transportation and distri
bution of food and feed products. In
formation brought out at that con
ference will be used not only by the
Federal Trade Commission Itself, but
will be passed on to the Department
of Agriculture and the Interstate Com
merce Commission. Acordlng to Mr.
Lucas all departments and commis
sions at Washington are co-operating
as never before in securing prompt
action in matters especially that have
any bearing upon the proper conduct
of the war—and the production of
foodstuffs Is recognised as one of the
very Important factors In the war sit
" "One of the country's greatest handi
caps at present Is Its lack of adequate
transportation facllltlea," stated Mr.
Lucas. "This wss strikingly manifest
In our conference. It waa the concen
sus of opinion that the present prices
of wheat and flour and some other
products are due as much to Inade
quate transportation facilities as to
crop shortage. The South will not
only save Itsslf from hunger and suf
fering by raising Its own food and
feed stuffs this year, but It will le a
considerable extent relieve tho rail
road situation by releasing for other
purposes ths tens of thossands of cars
that have heretofore been necessary ta
bring us the $700,000,000 of food and
feed products that we havs bought
from the West.
"Other states are taking the aama
steps we are to meet the situation,
with variations of course. Many states
have considerable legislative appro
priations with which to carry on the
work and the best talent everywhere
is being utilized In the campaign.
Bterenuous work Is being done in the
great grain ststes because the nation
Is expecting from that source to feed
Its armies and navy and the armies
and civilian population of Its altiea.
The South and New England are ex
pected to feed themselves aad releaas
for military purposes the surplus that
the West will be able to raise.
"The problems to be solved, la the
unanimous opinion of our conference,
relate not only to as largely increased
acreage as possible, but also to labor,
tranaportatlon and the tin can situa
tion, which Is very serleus. All of
these matters are being considered
and handled by the proper authorities
and radical steps. If necessary, will
be taken In applying remedies."

■MUST PREVENT FIRES WHICH DESTROY FOOD
You cannpt continue to eat if you
continue to burn up the food!
Therefore, if you want to eat—and
to continue to eat—prevent the Area
that are destroying vast stores of ths
country's food products every day.
These are the salient thoughts of a
letter recently Issued by one of the
largeet insurance companies to Its
agents and to the Insurance frater
nity. The letter emphasises the fact
that the duty to serve cannot be dele
gated. "U. 8. stands tor the United
Btatee," it says, "but it spells US, and
with a very distinctive spelling when
a 'state of war* arrives."
The letter is a clarion call to indi
vidual service—personal assumption
of responsibility tor waste, however
caussd and whatever it affects but
with particular rsfereoce to the pre
vention of food wastage by fire—
The Insurance company's call Is to
the agents of the company first, to the
Insurance fraternity second; but It
applies with equal foroe to every man
and woman—even eVery child—that
handles or in ths remotest dsgree Is
responsible for created values, wheth
er created by man's handiwork or pro
duced aa the result of his labor.
The letter follows:
"In the strsss which confronts our
country we have also the recognised
Importance of the Individual, the quan
tity and quality of the personal obli
gation of every citlsen, which in less
strenuous times is overlooked or
Ignored. It Is not a time when per
sonal responsibility may be left to
parties, societies, officials, aggrega
tions, etc., which in "piping times" of
peace and prosperity is too much our
habit. Esch must now follow ths flag
for hlmsslf—ws cannot avoid or dele
gate our duty. U. 8. stands for the
Unl'ed States, but It spells US, and
with a vary distinctive spelling when
"A State of War" arrives.
