THURSDAY, OCTOBER il, 1917  TAKING A LONG CHANCE  The farmers in the vicinity of Armstrong are  pitting Iheir polalo crop ralher: than sell lo the  ���������������������������Evaporator at $22 a Ion, and lhc-Evaporator''people arc bringing spuds in from Alberla,' laying  them down m Armstrong al that price, to keep  lhc bins full. Farmers believe lhc price will.go  higher in lhc spring, and arc preparing lo lake  advantage of llie increase in price. Men Sveil  acquainted wilh crop" conditions in Eastern Canada and lhc stales, and all governmcnl crop re^  porls, do not justify lhis belief'ol" lhc farmers.'-  in facl, lhc reverse will probably be the case.  Canada's Food Controller stales there arc some  10,000,000 bushels of potatoes in Canada in excess of estimated requirements, and he is urging  lhat more po la Iocs he eaten in order to save the  crop. This docs not look like better potato prices  lhis winter. Perhaps the farmer who is turning  down a sure thing now at $22 a ton may win  oul by pitting his crop until Spring, but chances  are againsl him. ' What hc might gain in price,  he stands lo lose iii sorting at the pit and in hauling to market. The roads,lhis fall have been excellent. Twice the load could be hauled today  as could be hauled in the spring. There is the  further possibility ol" lower prices when the pits  j������������������ca=op.Qnad *    *     *   *        *     '-'���������������������������������������������������������������������������������  Uncle Sam is now spending twenty millions of  dollars a day on the war. Of this, twelve millions  goes as loans lo the Allies.  UGLY FACTS WE MUST FACE  The chief staple food of Europe is bread made  from-wheat-flour;Greal Britain,ran industrial  nation trading wilh the world, docs nol grow  morc than one-fifth enough wheat to- feed her  own people. Only f) per cent of the population  previous lo Ihe war were employed upon tlie  land. Britain ordinarily imports her bread skill's  from many countries, including Russia, India,  Auslraila. South America, United Stales and  Canada. This year, war and famine combine to  curtail Ihe usual wheat imports of Grout Brilain.  The result is lhal the civilian population is already on war-bread rations and in Ihe army Ihe  strictest of regulations are in force against waste.  In 11)10 the wheal crop was short throughout  lhe world. The harvest for 1917 in many countries will also be a partial failure. There is al  best only an average crop in Canada this year.  Tlie United Slates has only a comparatively poor  crop. The Argentine Re pub lie's crop is so small  lhal the Government placed an embargo upon  the export of wheal. Russian wheal is cut oil'  by thc enemy grip on Jhe Dardanelles and lhe  Habit' v supplies aie available from Roumania.  Pari of France i.s devastated. Sixty million men  are under arms consuming more lhan in peace  limes, or have been withdrawn from work of  production. And these men musl be fed from  the diminished output of those who are left on  the land.  By raising Ihe milling percentage of flour and  including some more of the whole wheat lhan i.s  normally included in while Hour, Great Britain  has affected a saving of 10 per cent. But even  at lhat the people of the Old Country are reduced  to a ration of four pounds of this war-bread"per  week per person compared with 5% pounds of  white bread per person, weekly in times of peace.  Thc requirements of the allies for 1917 from  other countries is 577,000,000 bushels. The bulk  of this will have to come from North America!  If this continent fails lo supply it thousands will  starve while thc supplies for lhc armies will'be  dangerously jeopardized.  The crop of lhc United Stales for 1917was  estimated in August at 653,000,000 bushels. The  normal consumption-of'lhe United Stales is 600,-  000,000 bushels, leaving only 53,000,000 for export according to August report.  Canada's crop for 1917 is cslimtaed at 254,000,-  000 bushels. Canada consumes about 50,000,000  bushels, with an allowance of 50,000,000 niore  for seed and loss in cleaning. That leaves 154,-  000,000������������������ bushels for export from Canada, plus  53,000,000 from lhe United Stales.  577,000,000 bushels are needed. There is thus  a shortage of"370,000,000 bushels. If all this  shortage had to be met by Canada and the United  States, in proportion'to population-Canada; would  have to make up 7 per cent of the total, or 25,-  000,000 bushels. To do so it would be necessary  for the people to cut down their consumption of  Hour by one-half- But more distant countries  can provide a part of this shortage. It is essential that Canada should supply at least 12,000,000  bushels. This will still leave^38,000,000 bushels  for home consumption, an allowance per annum  of 4% bushels per head of population or over a  ban-el ol" Hour.���������������������������Canada's Food Controller.'  In Brilain lhere is a slrong movement to do  away with afternoon teas so as lo promote food  economy- Afternoon leas arc about as essential  lo a well regulated body as a tail on lhe hind leg  of a dog. It would %bc safe lb wager that there  arc as many people kept "oul of sorts" by afternoon teas as by nightly booze.  OPENING THEIR EYES  Our American allies arc having difficulty in  discovering themselves. They have difficulty in  adjusting themselves-to life'new order of things  brought about by the Government's stringent  war measures. Here's from lhc Los Angeles  Times, one of the mosl conservative and lhe  most influential newspapers wesl of'the Mississippi. "Here is irony for you! Germany, in being crushed by a world ot' enemies, is foisting  ber form of kullure of stale-efficiency, which extirpates lhe individual, upon lhe very "'nations  lhal arc al war wilh her because she declared  her form* of government lo. be the best and  sought lo impose il upon-lhc planet.

And as long as this illusion prevailed, thcjccmbcr,   to   dishwashing  ������������������������������������  lo fishing-ficcts in Dc-  Glolhcs-washina   and  need of war was to be, to stilfcn thc moral fiber window-washing, to road-building and tunncl-  of growing youth. What thc world needed when I making, to foundries and stoke-holes, and'lo, the  the, war broke out> and for ycars before, was to frames of sky-scrapers, to telcgraph-pole climb-  be set to work.

Long before thc war broke oul Germany excused "her* military' spirit by saying her army  taught obedience,' decency, cleanliness, system,  courtesy,, a civil tongue, and, in fact, gave lhc  youth a general moral ancl spiritual keel-hauling  and setting-up, which was otherwise not obtainable.

We arc only recognizing a faefwhich j maindcr of one's fife. ' /  no man will attempt lo deny.   But after going, ^VT spoke of the 'moral equivalent' of war.; So  this far, wc do not have to go to the extreme and  say' that wars arc' necessary. However, thc* fact  is wc will never do away with war-until we.begin  to grow something better to take its place in ac  iar, war has been the only force that* can discipline a whole community, ahdVuntil an equivalent discipline, is organized, I believe that war  must have its way.   But I have no serious doubt  complishing that which is admitted of war.   It that thc ordinary prides and shames of social  is" not necessary for us to travel through hell to  reach heaven. To "argue that'wars arc necessary  is to argue-that wc clo." As-a substitute for war  and an immunity bath from the spirit of the  mollycoddle, Aristotle, >vtio lived four hundred  .years before Christ, argued; that "Peace abroad  is only possible when wc'begin to "realize that our  greatest dangers are from the enemies that lurk  in our own camps." , Aristotle was the first  scientist.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY-  Thursday, October 11, 1917  SPEAKING OUT AGAINST WAR  ihe Food  Controller's Ollice, there  was a  very ���������������������������satisfactory saving in  white  bread,  beef  and'bacon   for  the first month of the national food  saving plan inaugurated August 17  by lhe Dominion Government. Reports are not complete for the entire  Dominion,  but   those  already  received ������������������������������������������������������indicate  that  the  saving  in all parts of the'country has been  large'measured in  percentage and  enormous when considered  in  the  aggregate of pounds.    Four establishments alone in one city affected  a saving of 0 1-2 tons of beef and  .3  3-5   tons  of  bacon.    Add   these  figures   to   lhe    number   of  other  public  eating  places   in' the  same  cily, and  then add  all  from other  Canadian cities, and you can easily  sec how great has been the saving  in consumption of these two commodities.  Reports already received by the  Food Controller's Qilice show a reduction of 20 per cent in the con-  sum p1 ion of while bread as a result of the provision of substitutes.  in order that Canada might send  to the Allied countries its share of  the enormous amount of wheat required, the normal consumption at  home will have'lo be reduced from  Ii to A 1-2 bushels per capita. This  means lhal where wc are accustomed to eat 'I slices of white  bread wc-musl now eat only 3, and  I'or lhal othcr slice- cat a bread  made from some other cereal, such  as rye, barley, corn, or eat its  equivalent of barley, rice, oalmcal  or other cereal food.  The war party in Germany, tlie  greatest of the autocrats, is not enjoying a rosy path in dealing "syith  the people.   There have been mut-  terings heard against the continuance of war, coming from the people   of  Germany   for  weeks   past,  and a few days ago, according to  an   Amsterdam    dispatch,    George  Gothein,   Progressive    member  of  the Reichstag, is quoted as having  said  at  a 'meeting .of  the  Central  Committee   of   his   parly   that   although  the military -situation  was  satisfactory lhere was no hope of  crushing    Germany's    enemies   on  land.    As  for the submarine campaign,- 7,000,000   tons  of  shipping  had been sunk, he asserted, but no  disposition   toward' peace   on   the  part  of   England   was  discernible;'  "America   cannot    be    forced    to  nilake   peace,"   Herr .Gothein   continued. "We cannot force America  to   pay   a   war   indemnity.    There  lemains o'nly England."   But should  we, in order to obtain an indemnity: of 10,0000,000,000 marks, sacrifice 50,000,000,000 marks' aiid another half ^million  men?"  Germany's a,llies, Herr Gothein  continued, were not inclined to  continue lhc war for pan-German  plans of conquest but were striving for, peace by arbitration and  conciliation, while the pan-Germans' clamor for' annexation was  finding a bad reception among  Ihem. He asserted thai the long  working hours and insufficient  feeding at home increased the desire for peace among thc workers,  and that strikes might be expected  if the war should be continued for  aims of conquest.
