9 THESE are the days indeed which bring the

greater responsibilities. .

rapid succession that, at the best, there remains
only the vague and indefinite conception of all
that has happened within our own country.
One marvelous thing stands out as perhaps
the greatest of all our achievements. The won
derful, rapid successful and effective change
from a calm, peaceful life, to that of one of the 1
greatest fighting machines that the world has
ever known. And how quickly and harmo
niously it was all brought about.,
We can, with equal conviction, expect as
great a transition of the mighty force of fighting -men
into a peace-loving citizenship, express
ing the marvelous adaptability of our Nation
in 'meeting successfully the demands made
In the multitude of details governing our
great army of fighters, there has been nothing
of greater importance than that they should be
fed properly, and there has not been a single
item of their diet that has been so carefully
guarded and watched over, as bread. '
We have had once again revealed to us the
fact of bread-being the very foundation of our
physical existence and good health, but back
of bread itself is the thing of greater impor
tance how is the bread made, and from what
is it made.
Here again we realize the difference be
tween one bread and another ' as a health and
strength-giving food. There have been, and
probably will continue to be all sorts of changes,
new ideas and substitutes for the .
best practices in the making of
bread, but in the future, as it has
been in the past, the foundation
of good bread properly made
will continue undisturbed.
