ALL MUST BE FED Practically Every European Courv try Short of Foodstuffs. 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, greater. 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 them. 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 before June. 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 four yenrs? 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 tho best whent in the world. Western Cnnndu offers tho opportunity nnd the uncenslng flow of farmers into the country indlcntes the fnct thnt advan tage is being tuken of It. Advertise ment. Shaving at Home.
