problem that now contronts the na
tion. "WASTE NO FOOD!" This should
be our motto from today until the
end of the war.
Remember that food is waited: .
When we eat more than our bodies
need for growth and repair and to
supply energy for our work
When food is burned or spoiled in
When too much food is' prepared
for a meal
When too much food is served at
When anything edible is allowed
to go to the garbage pail or allowed
to spoil for lack of proper handling
When food is handled caerlessly.
Say to yourself now, Mrs. House
wife: "For one month I am going to
purchase, prepare and serve the tood
for my family on the basis of the
most rigid economy consistent with
health. I am going to do my part
toward conserving the world's defi
cient food supply. I am going to
demonstrate thrirt in my home, to
make saving, rather than wasting,
my household standard."
Then at the end of a month care
fully analyze the results and unless
we are greatly mistaken, you will not
only be proud of what you have done,
but you never will be satisfied to go
back to the old wasteful methods.
A yourfg fellow at the club was
talking to an old and conservative
member with reference to criminal
procedure, when he observed:
"I see there's some talk in this
state upon the question of abolishing
capital punishment. Would you vote
to abolish it?"
"I would not," was the decided re
ply of the -old chap. "Capital pun
ishment was good enough for my an
cestors, and it's good enough for
me'" Everybody's, '
Gypsies traveling by motor car
were seen m New York city recently.
THE PUBLIC FORUM
SEVERAL THINGS Very, very
many of the backyard gardeners will
not raise enough to pay for seed and
tools, but perhaps the outdoor exer-.
cise will be worth something. If the
same amount of energy and expense
put into this gardening proposition f
could be employed in finding a way v?
to have food produced and distrib
uted for use instead of for profit, the
high cost of living problem would
soon be solved.
If the time and money spent and
to be spent on the Billy Sunday cam
paign to save souls could be spent
instead in saving bodies, what a host
of dear little babies and loving chil
dren who will die of hunger and want
between now and the end of the rtre- ,
vival" could be saved to useful lives.
But it is 'dollars to doughnuts there
is more to be gained in a financial
way by the large contributors in get
ting Billy to draw the people's at
tention in his direction while they
pick their pockets of a few things
like street car franchises, war prof
its, .class consciousness, etc.
Wouldn't it be grand if the money
spent and appropriated during the
last two years for war preparation
could have been used for making this
an ideal republic? That would be
real preparedness, for then no for
eign ruler would think of making war
on the United States. He would be
morally certain that as soon as his
men set foot on our beloved shores
they would rush to the nearest of
ficial where they could take out cit
I would suggest a way for the
school teachers to protect their pen
sion fund from those who are so anx- )ft
ious to help them take care of it V
Either increase the amount of pen
sion or cut down the rate to be paid
in dues, so that the balance on hand
will never be large enough to excite
the cupidity of those who are now
so solicitous about its custody.
One of the very worst habits that
