Now that harvest time is herb

The great "World War" with its
tftundous dcimantii, h3 brought
about very exacting changed condi
tions. 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.
