IN AN ATTEMPT to lake liic high cost of living out of politics the Pcterhorq Review places the responsibiliey for our present serious situalion facing Ihc people of Canada upon Ihe housewife and ihe' farmers., 5n a recent issue it makes this slateincnt: Canadians have not: yet learned, how lo cook or what to cook and what to eat. The high cost of living' among many Canadians arises from either extravagance in food or ignorance of what food is best for the consli- lution. Some storekeepers will tell you that it does not-' pay lo keep a whole cheese in stock because the sale is so slow that il goes stale on Iheir hands. In England chctse is almost Hie staff of life lo many pe.opje. Many British working men can make a mid-day nical onl'Of a penny worth of cheese and half a loaf. SVe'do no! wish lo press our readers lo adopt n cheese diei, but we use this ns an illustration of (he. waste thai goes on in do- mestic economy among Canadians, as compared willi oilier countries. Canada can supply herself wilh all the butler she needs if she can mil conserve her rural popu- i lation. Tins is the source of all the trouble in this mat- ter of Hie high cost of living, and to talk of "free food" which means the lolling in of foodstuffs from olhcr counlries is not a remedy, il is 'only a palialivc which will aggravate and extend the disease. Siirc'y the Hevicw knows thai Ihc simple foods arc away up in tosl ,ind to the people who resort to them entirely the problem of, making ends meel is serious.
