The Kvc- nlhg Telegram quotes a remark made' by Sir Sam Uuglies dur- lag his latest visit to Toronto as showing, it says, that he was expecting what has hap- nened.

George has sioned drastic regulations that will place the nation's food sup- ply under one man's control. Now the bicl question in the minds of the British public is, who will that man be. There is no rush of not- ables to undertake the task of food dictator. Ba'tocki's experiences in Ger- many seem -likely to deter the men here most suitable for the position. The choice now seems to rest between Lord Milner, former high commissioner for South Af- rica, and Lord Devonport. The lat- ter would be the more popular se- lection because of his unrivalled shipping knowledge, and of his control of the biogest provision business in Great Britain. Milner, however, is perhaps more acceptible to the government. Some sections want. Walter Run- ciman, who is responsible for the scheme.
