Pledge Card Campaign Stories
Are Result of Activities of
Enemies and False, Says
"We have heard that the people of
Nebraska are not . patriotic, said
State Food Administrator Wattles.
"We are going to renounce that ac
cusation when we get the returns of
our food pledge campaign of October
21 to 28. Every effort will be made
to get complete, returns from the
rural districts also,, where we will
have the school teachers working,
sending-cards home with the children
to get them signed up.
"The pledge is so planned that it
adapts itself to - the conditions in
every home, and it is binding only in
so far as circumstances in, the home
"Pledging oneself to conserve foods
does not mean that we will reduce so
much the amounts of foods consumed,
but that we will nse the kinds which
we can" readily substitute for foods
which are suitable to export.. Those
who sign the pledge will from time to
time receive from the government lit
erature containing' recipes and direc
tions for making nutritious and palat
able dishes out of things they had not
thought of using in that way before.
The pledge involves no serious obliga
tion to the government.
Government Don't Wan Food.
"Someone has started the story
that if you sign the card the govern
ment will then come and take your
canned goods away from you, and all
that kind of thing. That is the prop
aganda of the enemy and is not true.
You simply pledge yourself to help as
far as it is in your power by saving,
and substituting (in a large' measure
wholesbme foods' that cannot readily
be exported for those which the gov
ernment wants to export."
A state-wide convention of the
