MOTHER REALIZES THE
NECESSITY FOR CARE IN
CONSERVATION OF FOOD
SAYING FOR SOLDIERS AND ALLIES
Thinks of Her Duty Toward The Coming
Generations, and Finds Economy
Not Only a Duty, but Pleasure
She had been looking at a collection
of war photographs, and waa telling
friend about them. .
"They are terrible," she said, "But
I have to look at them. I have, to re
mind myself that the war la real, and
not just a horrible nightmare. I want
to do my best in every way, but 1
found that the impression needed coa
stant renewing their very horror
caused them to fade. So I started a
picture gallery of my own that would
be permanent, and that would enlist
my deepest sympathies with the task
of conserving food."'
To the other's questioning look, she
'I made a list fata, meat, fuel,
Those are, roughly, the things we are
asked to conserve by wise use and
substitution. It used to be easy for
me to eat a lot of butter just because
I am fond if it; to take two meat and
wheat bread sandwiches to the office
for lunch, and then throw one away
and eat some candy instead; so eas)
to leave the electric light burning In
the dining room at home while I was
in the sitting room. Or the steam
heat turned on all day while I waa at
the office; and, above all, so easy to
think that each tiny bit of waste could
n't make any difference at all In that
limitless, titanic turmoil in Europe
All this was bo easy that I started my
mental picture gallery to make it hard
too hard even to consider wasting
an atom of possible war material.
"I fixed it this way. 'Fats,' I said
Of course I know that fats must be
had for a wide array ot needa. But
because fat includes milk, cream, but
ter, the foods without which children
cannot grow up, I choose to make
"save the fata" an imperative demand
to me by the symbol of a baby."
"This baby la really the future the
future of France, of England, or Bel
glum, or any allied country. For it is
on this baby that the future of the
country depends for its continuance
in history and this baby depends on
the fata you and I can save for Its con
"So, with the picture of that baby
in my mind, holding out its hands to
me for its necessary food, putting it
up to me whether It shall grow up
sturdy citizen or whether it shall be
wasted, weak, its life, it it lives, a bur
den with that picture in my heart, do
you think I dare waste a drop of milk
or a morsel of fat?
"Then meats because of the phrase
'strong meat' I associate meat with
the strong, and visualize the soldier,
the man who ia fighting the war that
shall decide forever whether men shall

nature's demand for necessary energy.
And though I know that the sugar is
needed for all, I choose to think of it

men-to-be, whose youth has been de

ilmost alone, take prematurely on
their shoulders a burden greater than
has ever been piled up in this world

Red Cross Work
The present age la one of gigantic
resources,, gigantic opportunities, gl
;antlc organizations; the efforts of in
dividuals In every field is united and
hereby increased, in power. Ono of
he most striking evidences of this
tendency Is found In the work of the
Red Cross, one ot the great ro
mantes of modern times. Florence
Nightingale stands out aa a single vivid
figure, an angel of mercy; but in thi
present war, Itself an example of the
Interdependence of nations, the angels
are in battalions, and the work of
mercy handles units, not in terms of
the individual, but of towns and d!s
trlcta. Almost the whole country is
mobollzed, by money or by labor, in the
activity of the Red Cross. R C. Krle?
In the Hearst Magazine for January,
tells how it was done, in his article en
titled, "The Colossus of Mercy." The
story is one of achievement so great
that It reads like fiction so great
that It could be nothing less amaz
ing than truth. He tells how the most
Important partner of the firm of J. P.
Morgan thought it over all night, and
then left his business in order to be
Chairman of the War Council of the
American Red Cross. Ho tells how the
membership was Increased in six
months from 500,000 to 5,000.000, and
how the sum of $100,000,000, at first
considered Impossible, was gladly giv
en by the American people. The inspi
ration of it strikes home, and you
feel proud to share in this mighty work
ot human kindness, even if you could
contribute only a dollar or put in your
spare minutes knitting. It gives con
crete, definite Information of the actual
work accomplished. It tells how beau
tiful, devastated France is being re
stored, how the rehabilitation of 2500
towns and villages Is gradually being
performed. It describes how Serbia,
Belgium, Roumanla, Italy, Russia and
Armenia have been succored how the

work of the society, at first limited to
the soldiers and sailors of the United
States, has been enlarged to Include
suffering humanity in every accessible
land torn by the war, until It won the
great tribute from Theodore Roosevelt,
who said: "Second only to the army
in the work of winning the war comes
the Red CroBs." We are all working
for the Red Cross; but unfortunately
t is very easy for that work to become
ilmost mechanical. We need to read
Mr. Forbes' article' In order to realize
precisely what we are working for, the
necessity and the value and the power
of the work to which our dollars and
our time contribute.
