War Foods: 0050.0400

            Britain and her Allies need 160,000,000 bushels of wheat more than there is available for export from two countries to whom they look for supplies – Canada and the United States – according to a statement by Hon. W.J. Hanna, Canada’s Food Controller, and this is calculated on the decreased scale of consumption already practiced in Great Britain.  To make up this shortage, the people of Canada and the United States are organizing to substitute other foods and reduce consumption of flour foods by one-sixth.  Household scientists say it can be done without loss of health or comfort.
