The Allied nations are following the lead of the Central Pow ers la placing food upon a basis of scientific distribution.

Coutlonlng against Irresponsible talk at this time about a problem "far too big to be condensed Into short Interviews," Commerce Secretary Bed field today declared that no one "Is pre pared to say what can be done and to what extent" In the American food shortage ques tion "until very careful study of the whole problem has been made," The Idea that the United States might nave to come to a food dictatorship, like England and Ger many, he refused to consider seriously. The Secretary laid that many of (he causes for the present high prices of food products were very simple, but the prob lem growing out of It, he admitted, Is very complex. "For Instance, on the face of It," he said, "the thing that Is needed Includes hundreds of millions of bushels of grain and dozens of millions of animals which we haven't got" One of the bases of the food shortage und contingent high prices, he declared, wus the fact that all crops In the country last season were short. "At the same time the people of the coun try, more prosperous than ever before, with bigger wages and bigger profits than ever before, demand more and better things." The Secretary Intimated that the high price situation simmered down In the main to the old law of supply and demand with the supplies this time smaller and the de mand greater. He said the problem was a world-wide one. and that It was idle to conjecture what the Government could do until the whole situation has been carefully studied. As for a food dictatorship or a special department under which the food situation could ba handled, the Secretary saWJthb would have to eiae aboat through.-legUla tt !
