"In an article on America's war ef-
ficiency the London Statist reviews the
results which might ensue if the Un-
ited States entered war," continues the
Review. "After calling attention to the
fact that this country is the producer
of a vast amount of materials needed
in war, it rates this country as a great
naval power which has been adding
considerably to the number of her
ships and will be able to put a con-
siderable force to sea. If the Amer-

Result of British War Loan
Out of $5,000,000,000 asked for in the
British war loan, only $110000,000
were classified under tax exemption.
This might be ascribed to patriotism.

with its stupendous totals to which
nearly one-fifth of all the individuals
in the entire nation contributed, marks
the determination of a great people
to win the war.

The debt of the Teutonic forces is
smaller, being $26,400,000,000, with an
increase of $17,800,000,000 since the
war started. Adding up the totals the

FLOUR SURPASSES POTATOES
FOR NUTRITION AND ENERGY
Iowa City, March 7.-The substitu-
tion of flour for potatoes, as a means
of reducing the high cost of living, is
the plan suggested by Dr. E. W. Rock-

an article of food in place of potatoes
