like thousands of others, I did not
believe all I had heard in connection
As we live we learn, and we cannot
learn more thoroughly than by en
during great physical suffering, nor
can we sympathize with those less
fortunate until we know by personal
I know of several physicians who
read The Day Book, and as this is
one extremely interesting subject in
The Forum, it would be rather in
teresting to have their views. I re

express an opinion and stick to it.
I hope my changed opinion is ac

RETRENCHING IN KITCHENS.
Well! Well! It is to laugh! The
plutes' wives are retrenching in their
kitchens and they earnestly request
the poor workingman to do likewise.
Tell me, somebody, if the poor
haven't been retrenching since "the
beginning of time. The poor work
ingman is retrenching now, not be
cause he wants to, but because he
must. Show me the average working
man's family that can live decently,
let alone be wasteful.
We waste $700,000,000 worth of
food per year says the trust press.
Yes, maybe- they do, by dumping
things in the lake and letting them
rot in the ground and on sidetracks,
so they can force prices higher.
Some of the commission workers
that are on strike know. If these
men who are on strike know of any
food being bought and left to rot, and
they do not tell about it, they are
traitors to the country and should be
dealt with accordingly.
There is nothing left for the gar
bage pail after a meal at my house
because there is hardly enough for a'
meaL I can't afford to buy more
than we can eat The workingman
today does not live ; he merely exists.
What became of these so-called in
estigations of our foodstuffs? They
are just like a balloon that busted
Tafter the investigation. We have
more butter and more eggs in storage
now than ever before, and still the
price is double.
Canned goods are being prepared
for next winter already, and the seeds
are not even in the ground. When you
plutes and money hogs retrench in
your kitchen and take a basketful of
eatables to some poor family that
needs them, then you deserve to
have your name in The Day Book
and not in the trust press.
Your jnotto is retrench in your
kitchen and tell your husband to add
another dollar on a barrel of flour;
or 5c on a pound of butter; or 2c on
a dozen of eggs; the same with meat
All I say is, if you unpatriotic dol
lar hogs keep it up the workingman
might wake up soon and then there
will be something doing. The hand
writing is on the wall. Fred Saal,

THE.OUTDOOR CLUB PLAN.
Great opportunity for ..physical as
well as intellectual development is af
forded young people by an outdoor
club, and Wm. J. Ressel's idea is
Let us in fact get together at some
place in Lincoln park on the first
pleasant Sunday in May, as he sug
gested, and see if we really couldn't
make the best of our leisure time
during the summer and thus with the
assistance of all try to promote our
health and at the same time get the
benefit of clean ami wholesome re
creation. Let the red rose the emblem of
throbbing life and beauty be adopt
ed as our emblem.
Summer is here, folks! Let us
shake off our winter slumber and
wake up to the awaiting activities.
