"Food first," is the one personal
call of the war that comes to every
man, woman and child. Not all of us
can join the fighting forces, as labor
in the fields or factories, producing
food or military supplies is needed.
But every one of us can render vital
service in meeting the great food
problem. President Wilson states
America's obligation is: first, feed
ourselves; second, help feed our al
lies, and third, to do what we can to
help neutrals where that can be done
without also helping our enemies.
This means for us: first, to produce
more; second, to consume less, and
third, stop waste.
Get the idea of "food first" as your
war job firmly gripped in your mind.
There are millions of gardens in
the United States this year that were

composed of people who have come
to Florida and settled witnm tne past
five or six years. They came chiefly
from the middle west and most of
them are republicans at home. Inves Investigations

cent of them voted for Mr. Catts.
Their motive, it was ascertained on
careful inquiry, was to break up tne
existing order of things in the poli politics

a change; especially one that would
create dissention in the democratic
party of the state. They were sure
that Geo. W. Allen, the republican
candidate, had no chance of election,
that Mr. Catts offered them the best
opportunity for the accomplishment
of their design.
That this element gave their votes
to Mr. Catts is proven by the fact
that he carried by overwhelminging
maorities all the places where these
westerners lived in considerable num numbers,
