\ WORLD SHORTAGE OF
WHEAT AND IRISH POTATOES
ATLANTA, Ga., March 31. —Acting
on information from Washington that
the southern states will face a serious
shortage of food in the event of war,.
which is now regarded as certain, lo- (
cal civic bodies at the instance of the
United States department of agricul
ture have issued a call for a southern
food conference to be held in this city
next Thursday, April 5, for the ppur
pose of organizing the farmers, mer
chants and bankers in a movement to ;
grow an enormously increased quan- j
tity of foodstuffs in this section.
Already there is a world shortage of
wheat, Irish potatoes and some other
staple articles of diet. The United
States has been feeding its own pop- i
ulation and the Allies for two years.
Its food supply is- running low. When :
the government raises an army of a
million or more men, it will take every
pound and bushel of the surplus food
supply from the west to feed the men
in training camps, with none left over
to send to the south. In this situation,'
the authorities in Washington have 1
sounded the warning that the south's '
only hope of averting actual famine is ;
to cut down cotton acreage to actual
cash necessities and plant everything
else in food.
Representatives of the department
of agriculture will attend the confer
ence, and every agency will be used to (
secure a large and representative at-1
tendance. The date o fthe conference '
was fixed so early for the reason that
planting time is right at hand, and
delay will mean that the south can
not provide for the needs of her peo

FEAST OF PASSOVER
TO BEGIN ON FRIDAY
Passover, or the Feast of Unleaven
ed Bread, begins this year Friday ev
ening, April 6th, at sunset, and con
tinues for seven days. Orthodox Jews
celebrate it for eight days, that is, un
til Sunset, Saturday, April 14th. The
fest commemorates the deliverance of
the Children of Israel from their slav
ery to the Egyptians, and so most of
the ceremonial and ritual of Passover
is intended to be reminiscent of the
events and circumstances of that an
cient deliverance. Thus in the Tem
ple at Jerusalem, paschal lambs were
sacrificed to remind the people of the
lamb sacrificed by their ancestors at
the command of Moses before they de
parted from Egype; because the Chil
dren of Israel in their haste to leave
the land of bondage, did not have time
to permit their bread to leaven, it is
the law to this very day that during
the entire Feast of Passover, nothing
but unleavened bread (Mazzoth) may
be eaten. On the seventh day of the
feast the scriptural portion read in
the synagogue is the song of triumph
sung by the people at the Red Sea, be
cause this day is considered to be the j
anniversary of the dividing of the
The characteristic feature of the J
feast is the ceremonial meal, called’
the Seder, conducted on the evening
cl the first day. The ceremony en
deavors to recall the events of the
deliverance of old. Thus bitter herbs
are eaten to indicate how bitter were
the lives of the slaves in Egype. A
lamb bone is kept on the table to re
call the paschal lamb, offered in Egypt
and in the temple. A paste-like com
pound of nuts and fruits called “Haro
seth” is eaten; this is considered to
be a reminder of the mortar used in
building the treasure cities for Pha
roah. Four cups of wine are drunk
before four yere the expressions of
redemption used in the Exodus epi
rode. And it is obligatory to tell the
story of the Exodu severy year, the
youngest son of the household asks
four sets of questions as to the nature
of the feast, and the father answers,
telling the story of the deliverance
f”om Egypt. |.
In Palestine Passover also commem-,
orates the ripening of the barley, the!
earliest crop, and so marks the close j
of the winter. Thus the general mes-i
sag? of the feast is freedom, the free-;
dore of nature from the thralldom of
winter and the freedom of Israel from
PREPAREDNESS IDEA WORKING
AMONG ATLANTA DEBUTANTES
ATLANTA, Ga.. March 31.—The
preparedness idea is working like a
bee in the bonnets of Atlanta debut
antes and of debutantes in other
southern cities. Girls are banding
themselves together in clubs to learn
how to shoot pistols and rifles, and the
membership of the Girl Scout organi
zations in various cities is reported to
be increasing rapidly. The women of
Germany and France and other Euro- j
pean nations involved in the war are
doing the work of men on the farm
and in the cities, and if the United
States should become involved in hos
tilities the women of this country will
be prepared to take the places of men
with equal efficiency.

SIXTY-ONE YEARS OLD BUT
IS ANXIOUS TO FIGHT
WASHINGTON, March 31.—Anxious
to fight, but fearing that his age would
prove a bar to his enlistment ofr ser
i vice, Thomas J. Walker, 4401 McPher
son avenue, St. Louis, has written to
Major General George Barnett, Com
mandant of the United States Marine
i Walker wrote: "I am sixty-one
years old. healthy, active, temperate,
and reliable. I wish to offer my ser
vice in some capacity—shore, river,
dep sea. or otherwise.”
The recent rush in recruiting has
brought many odd types of both sexes
jto the Marine Corps recruiting sta
i tions. Like Walker, many have ex
pressed a wi'lingness to "do their bit"
wherever duty calls, whether it be
I "shore, river, deep sea. or otherwise.”
