It is needed for the immense armies we are sending abroad at the present time. It is needed for the Allied armies who are so gloriously hold ing the Battle Line in Western France until the Americans can get "on the job" and drive the German Hordes back across the Rhine. It is wheat flour that is so badly needed for bread stuffs over there. It is wheat flour that the American Government must have and our American Pa triots at home must provide it by savings in the homes. There is no other source of supply until the next harvest. Thus duty calls an to our part in the war. Knowing that all loyal citizens are glad and willing to conform their house holds to the six pound ration until the new havest. but knowing also that we have some among us who are disloyal and and perhaps not averse seeing sacrificed the splendid brave youth of the nation who are going from to our homes to fight for our freedom, the Government is protecting our loyal citizens against those disloyal in meeting this call for the saving of wheat Hour. There is on the Statute Books a law against Hoarding under which those who hold an unreasonable amount of flour are being prosecuted by the Department of Justice in the Federal Courts. The penalty (or convicted hoard ms is a tine not to exceed S5.00U, and imprisonment not to exceed two years. or both. The Food Administration has determined the amoaat ef wheat that Is available from now until harvest for the American people. It has determined that a reasonable use must not exceed six pounds per month per person and has stated that it is unreasonable in this emergency to have on hand akore than a thirty days' supply on this ration for our householders. Any person who has on hand more than this amount is liable to prosecution as a hoarder of flour under the law on orders from the Food Administration. The procedure is by indictment in the Federal Court. Recognizing, however, that many patriotic persons, following practices formerly considered legitimate and usual, have laid in larger quantities of flour than in this time of National Emergency is considered reasonable and right, and that many of these persons acted in so doing from proper motives, the Food Administration in the interest of fairness and justice, now offers to those citizens who have thus acted in good faith, the opportunity of snowing their u triotism and insuring themselves against the notoriety and penalties that wuid result from prosecution. No person in Kentucky, therefore, who makes and flle9 with their County 7ood Administrator the statement disclosed in the Pledge at the head of this irticle and holds his surp.us dour for 'he Government, agreeing to turn it over t it is needed, will be prosecuted by tno Government for boarding flour. The Food Administration will not call for your surplus unless it is neces Tf, and when it does call, will leave you your thirty days' supply, but it must now where the flour is and it must bave your promise to turn it over as a neasure of National Safety. In some Kentucky counties, owing to shortage of supply. It has already een found necessary to direct that excess t. ridings be marketed, but it is only u cases of euic-- seiu y that such action is contemplated. When this call comes to you think of the needs of our soldiers, the brave oys who I',;, lit our battle for freedom, for the safety of our homes from the neuace of the Huns. Don't let anyone say you are a slacker because you have iot ottered your surplus to the Government in time of need. Every pound of lour new counts in this time of trouble. Remember also that the influence oi .our oiler on other citizens not so patriotically inclined, may save the lives o nany brave boys from your own home town. Make your sacrifice for then .Lid in.ii.be jour name in this pledge on your Country's Roll of Honor! FRED M SACKETT, Federal Food Administrator for Kentucky.

S. are also a promise to pay. War Savings Stamps Are as Good as Money and Pay You 4 Compounded Quarterly Both the money and the stamps are guaranteed by the richest nation in the world. Suppose we were to lose the war? What good would money be? None at all. It would be a mere memento of the past. And if we bought our freedom back, by indemnity, it would be at a price so colossal as to wipe out our savings and mortgage our earnings for generations. The safest place for all your money is in War Savings Stamps, because the money saved and raised by War Savings Stamps will win the war, and thus insure the preservation and solvency of our Government and the safety of our homes and families forever.
