Dairy and Food commission todav is- sued the following statement: From reports on conditions mude to tho Dairy and Food commis- sion this fall, we, feel safe in stating that a marked advance in the retail price of many staple articles of food may bo looked for The shortage in many lines of canned foods, particularly canned vegetables is almost sure to be realized by the purchaser during the winter months. CITY {FRENCH STRIKE TERRIFIC BLOW; WIN DOUAUMONT; ROUMANIANS HARD HIT 'AMERICA WILL BE i Will .Permit No Foreign Intrigue No Place for Divided Al- legiance, He Asserts. New York, Oct. E. Hughes last night told an audience that crowded Scheutzen Park hall in Queensborough that he did not want the support of "anyone who has any i interest superior to that of the Unit- States, who would not instantly champion the right and interest of j America against any country what- [cver, who wants immunity for for- [eign aggression, or who would have [the power of this nation held captive ito any foreign influence or swerved I by alien machinations." Mr. Hughes' declaration was made sat the first of three meetings at which j he spoke in New York City last The other two meetings were jheld in Harlem and the Bronx. EFOR AMERICA ONLY "It is hardly necessary to say that I am Mr. Hughes de- Eclared, "we shall have an exclusively {American policy in the service of interests. I have no secret no unstated purpose, any one supposes that in case of Imy election the right and interest? of 1 American citizens will be subordi-j to any ulterior purpose or to interest of the policies of any for- With the increase in price of foodstuffs the problem of adjusting the demand of the table to the purse will become more difficult unless cheaper foods of equal nutritive value are substituted for the more ox- pensive. We believe a study of the food values of our staple foods will aid the housewife in conserving the family funds. Most certainly If the food values of the cereals were better under- stood economy would be practiced by serving them more freely they are our most economical foods. CORN CHEAPEST FOOD Based on its food value, corn in the form of. meal or hominy is the cheapest foodstuff obtainable. The wholesomeness of properly prepared corn dishes has been proven to be unquestionable; they are very readily digested. When cooked in the homo, breakfast dishes such as miish, hom- iny, corn cakes, etc., cost but one-tenth as much as the averaco tiriced breakfast foods. The increased consumption of Iowa's banner crop, corn, is therefore earnestly recommended to those who would practice economy in the se- lection of foods. It contains about twice as much fat as any other cereal- except oats and about 72 per cent ot starch, COMPARATIVE COSTS What the same, nutritive value as contained in one pound of corn meal, costing 3 cents would cost in other foods at the present prices Is shown as follows: Milk, 19.2 cents; cheese, 24 cents; eggs 64 cents- steak, 41.5 cents; white bread 10 cents; potatoes, 14 cents- cabbage' Bandit Chief Entrenches on Out- skirts, Awaiting Evacuation by Trevino's Army.
