The sudden transfer of such a hest of men, over from the field of pro ducers, to the class of consumers- among other unnatural cond'Jjloi.3 threw the food problem, out cf nor mal equlibrium hence the "high cost of living". ' This stress, of demand was over reaching the, Supply and touched, not only the great oommarcial centers but was felt in every hamlet, village and suburb tond knocked desperafely at every home.- A. search ws'made for a greater variety cf -foJd stuirs, various sut-. at.tutes were, recommended,' which came speedily and in , vast numbers to the relief. ,' -v ' '. To increase supply "intense form ing"; vacjmt lots and "war gardens" were encouraged, the superior value of home grown fruit and vegetables was cited. . These with many other plans of j'conservatfon and utility have helped in a marked degree, to bridge ever this stressed condition, but we are net entirely by. The high cost is still on and the demand is still calling for a far greater supply. How is this need and call to be met? The people of Belding are surely to be commended for the willing 're sponse they have already made,-the truth of "wihach," the many thrifty gardens testify. But these ..good gardens should not . all be on your nd!gihKors lot. Thjere is no gofl reason why Ionia and iGreenvilfie should raise your fruit and berries for you, nor should you always be content to go to Texaa for your on ions. As lc ng as you continue such a program, prices will be too high. This is an age of intense farming, Intense attention makes possible the factory's pay-roll. ' Why not put more intense interest irtto your backyard, that vacant lot or unused acre? and let them give you a "heme grown" supply of fruit berries and vegetables, to bless your table, drive away the "high cost" and help make Belding Beautiful.
