It Is only passivity that escapes public venom, (.'ritlcl.im is the penalty you pay for doing .^things worth while."' "How about a land army ot women for Canada?" . . AVith the present dire need ot men for the front and the hurry-up call that has been sounded forth through ilie medium of eonscrlptiotu-- Mrs. Hold believes that tlie time has arrived for women to take it to heart very seriously and to consider what they can flo-not in a scattered, isolated wiy. but as.an organized body, Do-minion-w'.de. "It just amounts to this," declared Mis. Held. "We will have to' have food, and we will have to go out and"; get it, just as the women of i->ana? aiul Britain did. They had no choice, and they did not hesitate for a mo-'ment about doing' the hardest kind of work. The e.-can)pie they have s!;t shiytild-be an inspiration to the v.o-luen of Canada^ who, despite the splendid service they have iijndered in many wayS, know little yet ot the drudgery or .the Heavy manual tasks that the ^daughters, wives and even motIi'3rs of France and Britain have shouldered. "Idon't say that the girls'>v!ll all be terribly keen about farming, but most normal women have a natural love of the outdoors, and it organizc�l on a national scale, 'given proper accom-modat'.on on the farms, and guaran-l'2ed a fair rate of pay and definite status, there should be no reluctauco on their part to take the place of '^he farmers' sons and hired heJp.", ih-3. Reid believirs that through the sudden drafting of men a new realization ot the need for saving and production will pervade the farmhouses. There is nothing,' that is going to mKk'j you save like having some of your )wn flesh and blood "over there." Then, agt^in, she thinks tliat girls should oust men in the cities where tiicy are ehgaged in non-productive work and fores them to do men's work where they belong-on the land. The day and the hour has come \vhen there must be an entire readjustment in tha field ot labor-.when the man who is not in khaki, and whose work can > be done equally well by a woman-must lake up ^the burden of war aud produce food. It will take all the men who are available 'and all the women who will volunteer and all the S.O.S. hoys to do justice to Canada's harvest "We have ^everything here-vat." expanses of Itind and the possibilities of .tremsndous crops-but we roust have more farmerjj and farmerettes. So it's.up to the women. Something new and hard to them it certainly is, but at the end of a season's work these muat bo infinite satisfaction in knowing that one has added materially to the CQuntrjk's food supply. The women who can't go out on the farms may at least have their gardens or their chickens. PJveryone can do goinething." Mrs. R'eid has just returned from the United State^^She saw and heard a great deal about food-saving down , there, fncidentally, she sampled some ji hard and rocky war,, rolls at breakfast! But slie..)ielleves that the people of Canada are saving with no less sincerity, although there are perhaps fewer visible signs among the undemonstrative people of the Dominion, "How about that vexed quesCioit of 'afternoon tea'!" Afternoon tea? It's delightful, hut unnecessary. Therefore, W3 might cut it out altogether. It's a waste ot time and energy, as well as, food. A person feels fiuite apologetic about having new clothes these daya, and I think we might feel equally conat;lence-stricken -when we serve afternoon tea. There isu't exactly ^ clothes I'amine in Europe, But there Is �arvatlon and there is acute-misery, Slmpl's cook-iug, no entertaining to speak of, hauaework reduced to /the mli'iimum -oh! we're gradually coming down to common sense, but we ,haven't reached the stage where it hurts!"
