Agriculturists on This Side of thl
Water Are Called on to Save the
World From Starvation West
ern Canada's Great Op
portunity. Considerable discussion Is tuklni
plnce in the pnpers ns to the nmount
of money thnt the United Stales, will
hnve to pity for Its guarantee of t18
price of whent for 1019. The indica
tions nt present nro thnt tho treasury
will not be nffeeted. Instead of wheat
going down the outlook now Is thnt it
will go considerably above the pres
ent trim run teo. It Is not only the npln
.'on of a ninn of the experience of Mr.
Hoover thnt give weight to this ns
sumption, but we have the glaring fact
that tliere will be mure mouth to feed
for this year, und the next year or so,
than there were lu 1!)1S, und the quan
tity of food will bo little. If any,
The nsmttnptlon Is based on tho fnct
thin fJermnny. Austria anil Poland,
nnd others of the lighting tuitions, un
able to secure food eunuch In the pnst
two or three years, mid still unable to
supply It within themselves, will re
quire to be fed. The food can now bff
taken to them. Kor some time the sol
diers will require to be fed; Italy will
hnve Its 'lemiinds. There will be ad
ditional shipping, some of which will
be needed fo- requirements of Intlln,
but It will nlso make ocean transport
cnsler. Mr. Hoover Is possibly better
acquainted than any other Individual
observer with both the world's food
needs and its prospects of supplying
He Is naturally very closely In touch
with conditions on this cnnMnent nnd
his position us virtual dlctntor of the
distribution of American-crown food
In Europe hns given hlin n possibly
unique Insight Into Europenn needs.
Mr. Hoover snys there will be no
surplus from the 1018 crop to carry
over Into 1019. Even under normal
conditions this would be. it sufllciently
precurlotis situation, for there nntu
rally never Is nny possible, cunrnnteo
that one or more of the creat whent
producing countries In Kurope mny
not experience n crop fnllure. Dndcr
present conditions, however, such lnck
of surplus Is distinctly dangerous, for
the very European nntlons upon which
thnt continent could normally rely for
the great bulk of Its whent, thnt is to
sny Hussln, Hulgurln, Serbia and Itou
mnnlu, will for obvious reasons he un
nble to supply their own demands for
the coming yonr. In ndditlon to this,
Mr. Hoover points out that fnmlne In
India will call for a substnntlnl pro
portion of the Australian surplus, and
that, moreover, a considerable part of
the Austrnllnn supply, which for lack
of shipping hns been nccumulutlng in
thnt cotinttw, has spoiled.
And the demand Is by no means
only for whent. Mr. Hoover esti
mated that he would be nble to fu
nlsh Germany 380,000 tons of grain
during the month of April. But it la
asserted that thu German stocks of all
kinds of grain nnil of potatoes and
vegetables will surely bo exhausted
Mr. Hoover hns nlso expressed tlm
belief thnt It Is questionable whether
under tho circumstances food enough
can be supplied to tide Germany over
until tho next harvest.
It is quite clear from nil this that
the world is going to depend more
thnn ever upon this continent to keep
the wolf from tho door until tho wnr
devustnted nnd nnttrchy-rldden coun
tries In Europe enn once ngnin feed
themselves. Alrendy wo read of the
protests of British soldiers occupying
Germany against nllowlug German
wnnen nnd children to perish of star
vntlon ns they nro beginning to do. If
these conditions provnH in Germany
what must be the stnte of nffnlrs else
where in Europe among nntlons which
have fought with us during tho last
To sum up, It mny be stated with
confidence that tho demosJ for every
product of tho farm will bo unprece
dented, nnd that the ngrlculturlst will
receive tho highest prices on record
for nil thnt he hns to sell.
The duty of Canndn, therefore, is to
keep up Its work of assisting in sup
plying the need. It can do so. It bns
tho land nvnllnblo nt low prices; the
market is there; rnilroad facilities are
good, the cllmnte nnd the soil .produce
