NEED TO CONSERVE FOOD IS URGENT

Mrs. E. N. Warner returned home this morning from Portland where she attended a convention of the county chairmen of the National Defense League of the state. The object of the convention was to meet W. A. Miline, chief speaker for the food administration, who gave an address on the food situation, and the necessity to still save food so that the millions of people in Europe will not starve and to urge the league thruout the state to cooperate with the food administration in getting general information over the state. He said that now the war is over, that many will forget that we still have to furnish food for the war country in Europe and may be inclined to waste food that would help over there. That it is not the intention to deny the people of this country the food that they need, but to conserve it. He said that Mr. Hoover was in Europe now to make an inventory of the food needed, and would soon inform us what is needed. After the convention, Mrs. Charles Castner, state chairman of the league, gave them a talk on child welfare work.
