; ;__SATUJiDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 19-15 Public Is Urged To Produce Food Townspeople Con Help U. S. Reach Food Goal Set By Government "During the past three years, every American who has played a part in the job of growing, conserving, harvesting, distributing and processing ^.our food supply lias done a magnif- ..•iccnt job," said President Roosevelt Hi a recent appeal to every citi/.en to continue this job. "As we enter a new year, the demands for our food at home and abroad are so great that it is essential for every woman and man to do everything to help in tiic huge task of setting the food produced and seeing thai a j, s conserved and shared. Many of our favorite foods are scarce. ' 'To this end, I ask Hie people in cities, towns, and villages to assist our farmers in every possible wax- to reach Ihe food coal which have heen set for this yc:>r. "I call upon the millions of victory gardeners who have done so much lo swell the nations food supply in these war years to continue their good work. "1 ask those people who can spare the time to assist the nation's food processors in the task of preparing the food for our armed services, our civilians and our allies. "I ask the millions of women who have preserved food at home so that our armed services could have the milts and vegetables they need to carry on until the war is won. i "1 ask every American to share our available food by observing the rules of rationing nnd by cooperating with food merchants in the observance of food price ceilings. ^ "1 know 1 can count on the American people to respond lo (liesc calls to action, so that we can all trillv continue to say when the war Is won that our food has played an important role in the fight for freedom.

C.—For e.lse In , understanding what makes things happen the wny they do In this crazy toivn, it may be conven- ICIH to strike a parallel with the pre-war French system of political blocs. Instead of there being one U. S. Democratic party which determines nil policies of the administration, there are In reality about live blow, For lack of better names call these blocs the Middle, the Liberal, the extreme Left, wing the Conservative and tb c extreme Right Wing UHiu-Conservative. Each of lliesc blocs has Its doni- i Insult personalities. There Is no formal organization In any sense, but making an arbitrary division of people who can pretty much be counted on to think through the same straw makes It. easier to understand iiow these blocs pull and haul ngalnvt each other In Irym" to Influence While House opinion («»d the administration line.

Perhaps Presidential advisors Harry Hopkins, Judge Sam Hosemmui and the yea-men of the White House faccretarlat should be included in this group of the Middle because Ihey go along with whatever the President docs. Most observers, however, would put Harry Hopkins ' some what further to the left.
