The trades and Industries section decided that labor, not helping thb boys at. the front should be curtailed and that wherever women could to tbe.wprk, of men to let the men do the heavier work as women are often injured by heavy farm work. . Thrift Section The thrift section, of wliich Mrs. Edwards- was secretary, after n. uch dis'iu'sslDu of the .question, "What are luxuries?" decided that a luxury is all that isnot essenllal to lite and health, taken in a broad aspect, and that in war time we should do without luxur-ios. Tlie conference was given sialis-tics iiroving tho absolute need of men, food and money. The world is almost at the point of starvation, said Mrs. Kdwiivds. There is a shortage o? tsn,-000,000 .bURhela of wheat. Canada and Ihp United States can give 150,-000,000 which leaves a shortage of 200,000 000 bushels. The rest only come by us giving bites und slices from our norma) supply and thcri! should be laiculcated a spirit of self denial that will hel|) in this. There are luxuries of dross, food and amusements, went on Mrs. Ed; wards and the section decided against the doublp menace to the war of imported cokumes, not only is the money sent out of Canada but as Ihcro is another war loan coming the money should bo saved for this worthy and necessary cause. Women should economize in every possible way in clothing and jewelry. Imported foods should likewise not. be bought, nor imported flowers. A certain amount of amusement is necessary for recreation and piiysical welfare, therefore tho moving picauros should not bo condemned as a whole for often they aro a relief from worry. Recommendations tn conclusion Mrs. Edwards reported nine resulting recommendations: J-lOcononiy in tlie home to be limited only by needs and necesRltioB. 'i-Tho use of substitutes for wlieat and meat. 3--i;itllizatlon of food and the leftovers from previous meals. 4-Careful supervision to prevent waste in the amount used or by bad cook(ng. S-Tli� application of the principle of solt-sacrlficQ applied to all conditions of dbmostle economy. (i.-No bread to bo itsed that is not 24 liours old. 7-There should bo official inspection ot garbage cans and a fine Imposed for waste. 8.-There should be a wide educational capipaipn to organize Ihe women of Canada to help, 9.-As tho. adefjuuLC feeding of the men overseas is essontiai to the winning of tho war, the members of the thrift coriimittoe assure the government ot their support of a compulsory mousuro, put into force by the government to secure tho necessary food. Rationing Not Possible Mrs. Edwards remarked that., the women favored conpulsory rationing but it was G>cplnined that this was not possible becauso' of tho immense ox-jiaupo of territory to be covered to visit the farms and unless they/were Included tho city pqpplo would be the only ones watched with the result th^it they would do all the rationing.' It' was considered- hotter to use the mpn aud money t(iat would be needed for rationing in the production oE food. Mrs. Edwards thinks that many Canadians do not see their relative place iu this tight, that we do not vision ourselves as part of the army. Jt is the Canadian woman's part to be at the back supplying the bread, as different members but u part of one body, clo.sing with a touching appeal to all to see the vision that Canadians at home are in the back trench and doing their part in the army by saving and doing without, , ' Mrs. Edward's most simple and eloquent speech is of vital interest to ev- ery woman iu Canada and was tul! ot a great many thought-produci�8 facts for every listener to carry awaj �with her. At tho conclusion ot this most original address, a hearty vote of thanks was moved by Mrs. McKlllop. second ed by Mrs. K. E. Skieth and tendered, to Mrs. Edwards by Mrs. G. AV. Hob insou. President ot the Local Council ot Women. Mias Minnie Hazel sang a most pleading solo, accompanied by Mrs Nelson, and the meeting closed wlH the National Anthem, Have Beautiful Hair GIRLS!
