Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 28, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGK l. There is no intention that any intlusiry lie put out of joint or business disorganized. There is every intention tlia! all tlie resources of the country be judiciously used in making the most of fan-ada's harvest thi.'^ year. The need is i;::pe.'-2:ive. .Vothing can off-set tliis fact. What the women of Ktirope have done to save the crops is an old talc; yet ever new in the wonder of it. What the women of Canada have done In this line is negligible, yet. although tliere has been some/brave pioneering in Eastern Ontario; and for years past in the West, when no otlier labor �(S-as obtainable, the farmer in desperation enlisted his wife's help in the outdoors. Not even the deeds of the thousands of men who are daily csacrificing iliein-. Buffering and the humiliation of the women of invaded countries. They have had few material privalionti, even in tliree and a half ye;irs of They have worked splendidly, and time and again they have reiterated their desire tn do everything asked of lliem by the liovernrnenl. Indeed, lliey have' pleaded for u wider field of activity. They have had the answer now. The way has been clearly indi'cated, The Great Need. The grealeHt need or the liour i.s for labor on the farms. .Mr. Henry' H. Thomson, chairman ot the Food Board has put it up to tlie men and women ! of Canada in no eijuivoeni teriu'i. The women can answer llila cull to arms in one of'two ways. Either they can go out on the land tlinmselves. or they can. release a man for the period ot the harvest. The farmers have dbne tlieir share. They are working like slaves, and their wives are^'iloing no less. They responded splendidly to the aiipeal for liit'reasod production earlier this year, with, the result that it is estimated that there are now 2.1U1O.OOO acres more than last year under (lie prin-j cipal grain crops in Western Canada. It stands to reason that if labor was (Toronto Telegram.1 "We almost felt that wo could let them cut our heads oft and put'them on again." rrlvalc Blank was speaking with eiithusiatitlc admiration of the work of ("apt.

Almost hopeless cases arc brought to them from all over England and Scotland with the assurance that if anything can be done they can do It. I'rivnte Blank got back home from overseas on Sunday hist. lie is a fine, sturdy, clear-eyed, bright-faced chap, who evidently kuow.s what he is talking about. Nine' Months' Work. "1 was about nine mouths with Capt. Rlsdon." he says. "I wits wounded at the battle of Viiny Uidge. My left Jaw was fractured, my upper gum in front was blown away, the roof of my mouth was shattered, nnd part of my nose was gone." Vou look at him in amazement as he tells you this, but when you know and look closer you can see the traces of a scir,. which is now scarcely noticeable. "I couldn't speak for a mouth and a half after I was wounded.'' sa.vs I'te. Blank, and when he produces photographs taken by the doctors of the various stages of the remaking of liis face, it is e;isy to understand that speech must have been impossible. No^v he speaks with never a lisp. No Mirrors. When I'te. Blank came out of tho battle a-nd the first dres.sings had been applied, he %^as naturally in a weakened state. For days lie lay i between life and death, when it re- | . ouired very little to turn the scale i I either way. As he grew stronger, iip began to notice things, and amongst other things that ran through his hea  * o  c. ? : an investiture, ? .> -  ?

Bui wiien it begins to rot would be i loo late. j T!ie lime to act is now! It doe.s not matter a scrap v.-hat a woman is or ever will be; what her j social status, ,iier occupation or her; share of this world's goods. There is , a new democracy abroad-a wonder- j ful levelling of grades. Csefulness and service are things that count. Every woman must starch her soul j and a.?k herself how she can best help i iri taking care of the harvest of lllis. i Slie does nol need to be a trained farmerette, tliough if siie is. it's all tlie better. j If she is a city girl wlio -was 1 brought up on the farm she would-be \ useful right on the kind. if she is a good housekeeper she can volunteer to iielp the farmer's wife for a lime. If she knows of any male loafer.s, she can repori them anil have them .sent to "pastures new" to pitcli hay. If she can take a man's place temporarily in the city, then by all means lei,�her do it and add one man to relieve the labor sitaullon. if she can give up her holidays this year to work on the farm she will be doing a plucky and patriotic thing. If she is a girl ot leisure,' It Is up to her to go out on the land or send a man frojj* the city wUUe she fills his shoes. In short-every -ivoman and every teen-age girl can do SO.METHING during .luly and August towards assuring the country of the full benefit of those crops which nature so bountifully yields, war or no war. It la one of the biggest things ever asked of a woman, li is for the sake ot our Allies. But most of all-for our men j 'ever there."
