Need of Food. A nation at war is a nation with a food problem. A nation with a food shortage is a nation in peril. In the face of the present world food situation food products of all classes must necessarily be conserved in order that the demands of the nations for food may be met. Need of Storage. By the proper storage and utilization of vegetables larger quantities of the less perishable food products will be released for shipment across the Atlantic, and the people at home will be well supplied with food. This year, the need for proper storage is greater than ever before, because an increased acreage is devoted to the production of perishable root and vegetable crops. Unless suitable farm storage is provided, large quantities of these valuable food products will go to waste.
