, F. S. Food Administration.
The increase in the monthly allot- ?
ntent of sugar from 2 to 3 pounds
per capita per month must not be
taken as meaning that the conserva- i
tion of food stuffs is not now fully
as important as it was at the height i
of the food shortage." declared Coun-i
XX Food Administrator M. C. Pleas- \
ants to a,_Franklin Times reporter to- j
day.
Mr. Pleasanta continued.
"While the sugar situation has im
proved. largely due to the splendid
aid of the American housewife in re
ducing consumption, and also by the ,
availability of new domestic cane and i
Ieet sugar. ?/?? ne? *r greater ex-'
ports in otitr ti: as M no less ma 1
The United St a ?? j;t increase /?o!
.ved exporM by one-half from a har
vest no larger than last year's .
The prominent part which the A
merican woman has played in con
serving sugar is best understood by
a comparison of our consumption of
sugar during the past four months
with the consumption for a similar,
period in normatt"ttmes. Normal con-'
sumptions of sagar for the months of
J^ly, August September and October
was approximately 400,000 pounds,
per month, or 4,600,000 pounds for j
the four months. Following the ap
peal for sugar conservation there was '
saved approximately 300.000 pounds 1
during that period of thiB year. Sev- i
enty per cent of the sug&r consume* i
In the United States is u4fed in the i
home. j
Last spring when we had only',2*.- ,
)00.000 bushels of wheat for export i
above our normal requirements, the *
American ~peopTe~made sacrifices by |
saving that enabled fls to send 130,. (
u09,000 addil)'. rial bushels of wheat
1 OKldes the itormaj exportable sur
plus. Of tltid the housewife alon*

had signed the armistice terms deliv

an official dispatch could be believed.
Neither the American government
or the "Allied embassies or war mis

the German envoy? had been conducted
through the, French lines some time

The following letter is timely and
should be read by all:
To all the people of Franklin County:
The news la coming to us every day
of the death or wounding of some of
our Franklin County boys. They are
making the supreme sacrifice, thoy
are going West In a cause that is glor
ious, they are dying as men. I had
rather be a Sam Hoddic or Willie Ma
con or any of the other boyB that are
being killed or wounded on the blood
soaked hills of France than to be ?
slacker as some ire and walk the
streets of Ixjuisburg. These meu will
go down in history as not worthy of the
name of a man, while Sam and Willi?
ami the rest will go down in history
as God's noblemen. There kre other
ways of hoing a slacker than merely
not going to the war, am I a slacker In
not doing my duty at home, are you do
ing yours. Today we are In the midst
of a drive to raise money to sc ;ry
thing in the way of comfoit mr
won lifted boys. Aro we goin lot
the love of money keep us from v ing
to this noble cause? I for one *in not
going to be a slacker in this and 1
know you are no* Let uh pile r;> an
amount In Franklin County that will
surprise every one. Our boys Urea
are at stake, we m ist Respond. There
is not a man womr.n or child In Frank
lin CoUnty who cannot give something.
i let us see the right w nd
et its come 8f s. Our oim ish
blood arc 'ng help In V-v nee
today. ..
Yoi iceroly, -
T W. ALSTf'
