GREAT BRITAIN'S BEAT THE SHRAPNEL
Cheltenham, England.—Speaking re-
cently at a meeting at Cheltenham.
Capt. Sir Charles Bathurst, chairman
of the Sugar Commission, said that
they must not show the white feather
in the last of the war. It would be
doing violence to the unlagging cour-
aee of their fighting men overseas,
and to those who had fallen. The
position with regard to the food prob-
lem had been rendered more critical
by France and Italy making a big de-
mand upon the resources which had
been regarded «s available f j- the
United Kingdom and the requirements
of their soldiers and sailors. The
shortage in France and Italy, as com-
pared with a year ago, was something
like 30 per cent. They would have
to make up all that amount lest their
allies should be forced by sheer want
to drop out of the war. Owing to
the cumulative effect of the losses of
ships, and their increasing diversion
to military requirements, there was
going to be 20 per cent less shipping
for the carrying of commodities across
