Canadians aro gettltiK fed up with Ihls eroaklng crowd. They hare long patiently Ignored them, with that easy tolerance typical ot Canadian j)UblU; opinion.

THE ISOSCH HAS KNOCKED' THAT DAilNKD NONSICNSE OUT OP OUU HEADS." Have Iho people of Canada suothod themaelvoa Into a false security with the illusion that they also could continue to enjoy tho prIviloBea of peace time, wliilo the Bo.sch was being beaten? So far. food control in Canada ha.i beer, an easy load for the citizens to curry. There aro no vexa-lioii.s food rtstVlctlona. Only the hys-loricul will presume to say they have sacrificed and denied thomaelves until it hurts. WHY. WE HAVE N'ttT BIC01:N TO CONTROL OUR FOOD }IAIHTS. NO! NOT ONE OF US. There is no food hardship in Canada. Only tho hypochondriac has lost wniglit by adhering to Uie food re-Kiilation.h, and he would lose weight Kveii if he gor;rod, and for the same reason, BECAUSE HIO INSISTS T'PO.N IT, Tho rest of tie are merely ehanglng our diet, and aro oating heartily and thriving, thank you kindly. Do not let us lay tho flattering auction to our souls that we will go � very far over the tup by living up to tlie iPtlor of Iho regulations of the Canada Food Board. I'Jven if wo lived up to tho spirit It (Would not put uk on the peak of Mount Plsgah. It U our duty to do nn wo ought, BUT THERE IS NO RI-TSVARD UNTIL AFTI'>U THE SAtMtlFIOK. These uro days ot preparation and proparodncsa. for what may come, should this war go on much longer. Let u8 not begin to Itch to collect the laurel wroath until we have done oniolhing worth whllo. Cultivate the spirit of self 8acri:ice, and self denial while yet voluntary rationing is tho rule, for wo know not the day nor tlio hour wlien we will have to really reatrain our appetites In order to feed tho AIIIob. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T BRAG ABOUT \VLNNING THE WAU WITH FOOB YET. NOT Y1BT, MY FRIEND, NOT YET. And, wo havo sUII with ua this evening, the arm chair critic, tho half-lioarted friend, and the patronizing philosopher. Thoy generously j damn all food production and conservation efforts with mealy-mouthed phrases, aoeming to approve but really intimating that they oould do It all so much bettor tliomselves, Thoir fatuoslty Is revolting.-� They  peak without knowlodgo, .cr with that 'little knowledge' that Is a "dangerous tiling." In tlmca of peace, lu their narrow clrclo, their Ipso dixit was like tho laws ot Mede� and Porslana, and tliolr gentle women folk cringed he/ore their devastating authority. In time ot war they still fancy thoinsolvos infallible, andb ioat out their poasimls-tlc pittllnBs to the stupefaction of tho hoep. Thoy toil not, nolther do thoy knit, hut if you want an opinion oji anything atteoting the war, just go to thom, thoy will loll yoti, though thoy do not know a thing about It. ISN'T IT SICKKNINO?
