Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta s.vrmnAY, april r>. wis THB LETHBRinGE DAIT/T TTERAT.n page fifteen MRS. FRANK C. CARVELL, Wife of the Minister of Public Works. "Nearly every home in .Vmv Brunswick has been saddened mid iii(>n and women are thinking seriously and hard of the �v ar problems Unit confront them. There was u lime in the bei,'iji-iii)K when no one thought (if tl\a specif" of famine ilnr was yet to rear itself, but no thinking person rati ignore that, .spectre today. It has part of Europe in its #ri)>, and we. on tliis continent, have the weapons with which to fight it. 1 cannot believe that the women of Canada will fail to do Mioir pnrt." MK8. FUA.VK J). CA.UYELL. Croni her New Brunswick home, on .(lie hanks of the St. John River, Mrs. Frank I'. Carroll comes to Ottawa with an open mind on the subject of food control and with ureal, faith in the women of her own Province. She does not wish to dominate or to speak for the women of the whole Dominion, but. she knows from personal experience what the people, of Now Brunswick have done. "Nearly every home has been saddened in that part of the world," she says, "and the men and women are thinking seriously and hard of the war problems that confront them. There was a time in the hi ginning when no one thought of tlie spectre of famine that was to rear itself, lint no thinking person can ignore that spectre today. It lias part of Kurope in its grip, ami wo, on this continent, have the weapons with which to fight it., i cannot believe, that the women of Canada will fail to do their part. I am sure the. majority are whole-hearted in their desire to help. Personally. 1 know of many families that are doing everything Ihey can to save, and while there are some belonging to the other class. 1 .believe these are in (he minority. The versatile Minister of -Public. AVorks is a farmer as well as a Cabinet, Minister and a noted lawyer. Mrs. Carvell speaks affectionately of their farm at. Woodstock. New Brunswick, where there is a patriotic mixture of crops and stock. She is enthusiastic on the fanning r|uostion, and pad! a special tribute to the daughters on the New Brunswick farms who went, out on the land last, year and helped to harvest the crops. Rut the most notable work done by the women of that Province last year was in canning, according to Mrs. Car-veil. It was astonishing to note the | amount of fruit and vegetables canines! as a direct result of the Food ' Hoard's campaign. Kvcry woman who | canned ordinarily made an. effort, to i increase her customary output, while ' those Who had never canned before' learned how and slocked their cellars ! with supplies for the winter months. This is likely to be repeated during ' the coming months she believes, and [ in all probability a great deal more j outdoor work will be done by the women of the Province than in the past. : The Kast is not yet as aco.u=tom�t | to the "farmerette" idea as is Ontario. It is only the farmer's daughter who has done this work *> far. Gardening was also extensively pttr-: sued last, year in New Brunswick, and j plans are now on foot for a big soa-� son. People .who had small pieces of j land that, they had not considered ! worth- bothering about, got to work ; and turned them to account. It is this ! spirit of making the most of the little things and saving the scraps that is going to count, in the end, in the opin-! ion of Mrs. Carvel], i "The, women in our part, of the conn-'try certainly did their hit to serve | a ltd produce. They took upon themselves ali kind of extra tasks, and I jean only pay the highest tribute to j their loyalty ami zeal. They are naturally a thrifty people in the East, who make the most of what they have at: hand " j Speaking of New Brunswick, the 1 (mention of fish naturally cropped up. I but. lite fish, like the prophet, does not j get. too imtelt honor in his own country, and Mrs. Carvell thinks that, the ncople of the West are'probably eating more fish than the people of the I Maritime Provinces. At the same time | a greater quantity is being used now las a result of the Good Board's c.am-! paign, and it is taking the place of beef a3)d bacon quite extensively. Mrs. Carvell is another Cabinet Minister's wito who would like to see afternoon teas and all unnecessary "frills and Hissings" clone away with, but she adds that this is a matter of individual opinion and that each woman, must decide her own course of action. Asked what she thought about compulsory rationing, she said that she had not even heard it mentioned in the Kast. and that, tpe discussion was new to her when she came to Ottawa, so she .would not. venture any opinion one way or another.

It's a long road to achievement, but. fine road all the way; Smooth or stony, doesn't matter greatly if lite, livelong day We're advancing, with our faces turning sunward all the while, With a sure belief forever bracing us to song and smile. It's a long road to achievement, and sometimes a grim load. too. Put, it's through determined effort that. our lives grow tine and true. j\nd the sun will soon lie shining as the arching rainbows play In the sky above the meadows, and our cares will drift away. It's a long road to achievement, and the goal seems mountain high In our dreams, hut. we shall find It. if we're faithful, bye and bye. Oil we'll make the rarest friendships, and we'll find the bluest skies! Jl's a long road to achievement, but it's there that gladness lies. - Myrlelht Southerlatn.!.-- I llar.lc of Commerce in T�!�'>. :c; Kenneth, are the. giiese- ,' SI i Mrs. 'It: Mayniird.
