Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FIFTEETf FoDdiavin^iiitheHome UADY FOSTER "There i� practlcaily no restriction fn tljo quantity or variety of consumption and n6 sacrifice In Canada comparable with that being made in England or Franco or Italy. Probably ohe-lialf Is a moderate estimate ot what could bo saved If even the British stand^i-d were practised, if all information at hand can be relied upon, something akin to fdmtne. threatens the population of allied countries, and we should, out of our abundance, make instant response."-Lady Foster. Lady Foster's ideas-about food control are practical first and theoretical next. She believes m women Keeping pigs and raising chickens-in fact, going in for anything that moans increased food production at the present time. She cannot see wny there should bo any prejudice against keeping a pig, and It 1� her view that women should go In for farming on an extensive scale this year, trying out every branch of agriculture and specializing in gardening and thd raising of pigs and chickens. None too optimistic about the food situation. Lady Poster thinks that Canada has a long way to travel y6t? In Its conservation measures.; "i am entirely In accord with the Hoitf to^^fop a;; Bad Cough Bwnriilat i*ralta tnm tlila ham*-Maito �rrup. EiMllr i�r�p�-" and ei ' cMto UtU*.

"Ii'i many "respects better, quicker results can be secured by elimination dt food waste, restriction and discrimination In the use of foods than by possible preparations tor Increased production,.- and it is quick and Immediate,relief which Is now imperatively needed by our suf terlng European Allies.''!'>'v' She does not mean by this that any effort should be spared to further ths cause of production, but rather she thinks that alt classes should "get busy" now-saving; whereyer they can savfe-substltutlhg. whatever they can substitute-and . producing', - wTierover they can produce;. � � 'Leaving out , for the--inpment the poorer homes In whicH'necoarjity curbs waste and extravagance almost, or quite to the limit, a curswy: glance into the homoa of many'ot tne rich: and well-to-do reveals conditions ot careless over-supply and unnecessary consumption quite parallel with thoso pro-vaillng in pence times,",declared Lady Foster. "There 'is practically no restriction In the quantity or variety of consumption and no sacrifice comparable with that being mado'm Eugland or Prance 6r Italy;- Probably one-half Is a mod'ei-ate estimate of what could be saved If even the British standard were practised. In these count- less homes in Canada-^-^n country villages, tqwns and cltiesr- that the gospel of savingi^and sacrifice shpuld be preached andJ.enforcedf, by all the pressure that governmental regulations can give." Lady Poster thinks ,that women have siftrltlced more In dreas and in other things than'ithQ|r. have jjj fdod,-and that they don't 'seem to reallKO the situation in full. "It all intorraaUin at hsnd can be relied upon, somothirg akin to famine threatens the jwpula-tlon ot allied countrleq,'and Tl'e ahouUl, out ot our abundance; make iraraedi-, ate response," she obs^^rved. Her vle^Vs on libw ttf bring home to the women ot Canada in t^ie most forcible way the seriousness of the situation were sought. "It seems to me," said Lady Foster, "that all the women should be'�enllst-ed through wide voluntary drgaiilza-tlons p�t on In every municipality Tni; der central dli'^tioil. ' Tpachers preachers and platform .speakers should be urged to Join the^crhs^de. No public meeting of any klnd'should be held without* a brief speech'being made on food control.^, This personal appeal, combined with printed'matter, should reach the^eater part ot the community. Of course, you have tbf) foreign element to consider, and for; them I think nothing could be better, thtinthe community kitchen scheme,-which Is advocated by the Local Council of Women. Operate these: kitchens in different centres;, 1st woiqep -bring their food tothem to be cooked; train them how to buy Uo the 'best^ advantage-and it Is wonderful > how much good might result. .Those'/'rkitchorfs would toucli women you can't get'hold The Visitor Soino one down tho city street Passed unseon on soundless feet. Who it wafl I do not know. But I saw worn faces glow. And I saw dim eyes grow bright With a ropturous delight; Sweeter came the children's laughter; Longer echoed it thereafter, , Somp one came and went along Through the wide street's crowded throng.
