Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta fHE L^ffpl\ip,fiK, DAILY HEnALP SATURDAY, MARCH 2. lOlfl iavingint^Rome' MRS. MARTIN BURRELL "If all the women of Canada fealtz-'ed the danger of famine, they would not-waste-neither wovild they want in the future. ^ Now as never before they must produce, and again produce. They must save with all their might. There was never a time when they had a better chance to do great work than now. -md their/service lies in .field and ^kitchen."-Mrs. Martin Burrell. "'.Waste not-want not." It was one of the first things I learned in life. In England'people arc brought up not to waste a crumb. Tliey can see so many of ihe poor around them that they realise the sinfulnetis of waste. I know t our own'home we had regular pensioners who called every day for food." The wife-of the Secretary of State. � Mrs. Martin ^urrell. believes firmly In the good old-fashioned doctrine oJ thrift. She thinks the present generation has fallen away from the careful, poonomical ways'Of the mothers and grandmothers iWho'spent most of their time'wilhiu the four walls of their liomes, .spiu.niug and cooli'mg and at-tending_to the general work-of the household. "I'm glad I'm not the Food Control-Jer." observed Mrs. Burrell. whei*ask-od ^yhat she thought about' the ques- tion of food" conservation. "It's a thankless task at best. No matter what a man's intentions are, they are sure to be misconstrued when he has to, dictate to the people at large, and especially when it is in'regard to what they must eat.' It's alwayi a hard matter tc^say what another person should do, for each one has his own problems. However, I think that the people of Canada are beginning to realize the need of economy." >ys. Burrell does not believe much in hard tind fant rules for the whole community,' such as would be necessary were compulsory rationing Introduced. She believes that - everyone should do liis utmost in sa^ng, ac-cordini; to his circumstances. "There are h. great many luxuries In use. which we think of almost as lie-cessities, tha't we could easily do'with-qut-candias and,sweets of all kinds for instance," said Mrs. Burrell. "We need a certain amount of sugar, but nothing like the quantities, commonly used. Of course, it is easy for one person to say: 'Why vdon'r* you .do this?' and '\\�iy don't you do.that.?' But eaclMndividual has to decide for himself what he shall do. "Wa,are a 8mal^family and there is no waste where.we are concerned.

Chas. Baker, called for the first address to the session. This was responded to by Mrs. E, Grovette of Calgary, who spoke upon the subject of "Pitfalls of Womanhood."

"1 think every vacant lot were planted with potatoes and other vego-lables, and the,women cared for them, they would be .rendering fine national service. The assistance of-everyone counts. I am particularly In favor of women going on the farms and assisting either the farmer or his wife. The women of England are doing almost 'every kind of work.on the farm, and ment; temptation from ovordressln by the privileged classes, etc. The speiker depreciated the mock, modesty of parents relative to inr slructiou for bodily purity, to their children. This education should bo. amplified by n syatenLitlzod scheme of education, promoted throughout the .province. � Segregated districts should be abolished but with ample and proper pro-, vl'iion secured for those affected there- .th;iy, along with the woipen of France, b.v. have shown that they are- aa capable -\ fine tribute was voiced by ^ the -in this respect as men. There are speaker to the local "traveller's^ aid" many women out West who could | agent here In Lethbridgc for her ^rive hay-racks and tractors, and in almost any part of Canada women could look after poultry and dairy produce." ' . . ... IHrs Burrell. who has lived for years in British Columbia, 'troceeded to tetf of women out there who are taKltig th! Uil.ice of their'soldier husbands and are ! most o.\cpiionl conlrlbiiiion to the con somewhat inglorious heroism and fidelity to a truly noble work, adding the suggestion that a similar official should be appointed for a like work on the trains. Or, Galbraith's Address Dr. Galliruith made ilir no.\t and ,that>4�w prdfttiatd iHi moral stand-'^ running the farms themselves. So m'any men have gone in some districts that either the farms hgve been slnit "down or the women are'"'in charge. Mrs. Burrell spoke of one Englishwoman in particiilar whose husband was killed at the front. She had been ' brought up in a luxurious Engllsli home, but she turned her hand.to tlie plow as If to the manner born, and she is now running the.farm successfully yrVh the help of her children and nonie old men. , But that is not what Mrs. Burrc^il calls the new-fashioned womau; rather she is the old-fashioned woman making use of the resoarces around her and meeting iier necessity with' the I natural supplies at her command. 1. "It seems to me that this generation 'Of v.omen loses a lot by living so speedily.'' she observed. "Not tuat we could be expected to go back to all the [old methods, but at .least we minht emulate our grandmothers in being ,better liouskeepers and homemakers." I a'v of this question forbid general ia',, ''^^ And then Mrs. Burrell spoke ot the public education concerning it. To inlL *^l^^h^ days of spinning and recalled beauti- Dr. Lovering led in discussing the 1''*^,^ - r .i;ress in an address on "Vfucreal Diseases." The .nddres.s was ..snb.-iiuuially llie same a? that delivered at ttic "Kflruiu" two weeks ago.

"1 do think, however, that after the war there v.-ill ^be more hand production, and I cer-ftalnly think that women will go on ^knitting now that they have got into the habit again.  "In recent years It has even become old-fashioned to do .vour own canhiug. There are heaps of people who never think of preserving for' themselves. They go on buying tinned stuff, which isn't nearly as gqpd and is much more expensive, just Because it means less bother for them. "If all the women ot Canada realized the danger ot famine, they would not waste-and eventually they "would not want. Now as never bptore they must produce, and again produce.

Puzzles the Doctor The question ot segregation was a puzzling one to the doctor/yet he condemned it. This point wat covered by Mayor Hardie who-paid again his stock tribute to the 'glories of segregation and whose remarks generally, were practic;\lly tantamount to a denial to the position taken by the representatives of medical science. Rev. A. W. Coone, anmng other startling information said that the present cos.t to the province re these diseases per year amounted to from ?50 to 17,500. Mayor i-iardle'a Speech Mayor Hardie c^e^next and by an amazing strategy succeeded in making the transition from a .delicate seml-theologlcal preface to the permanent substance ot an address on "Law Enforcement," '  '' His Worship as Is hia .wont In public address, and from' his wide experience in civic affairs said many good things that were interesting and vital. In the remark that there were consideration that demanded a prior attention to law enforcement, and that 1* such enforcement the' greatest difficulties were involved, the speaker commanded the fullest acquiescence and sympathy ot the congress. But the mayor caused general disappolht-ment re the subject ot education as an aid to the problem. He contended that "education does'.n'ot^^retorm" and "that Intelligence is Independent c Corns Lift Off Doesn't hurt a bit to lift any e|p or callus off with flngere, No humbug!
