Into his Bhooe, Mr 11 11. Thomson, of British Columbia, who has
in to his i resent appointment
been tilling the post of Assist*
ant Food Controller As Mr Thompson knows the ropos and Is withal
able, we do not deem It necessary to
warn him that he also takes his lift-
in his hands. As has been proven In
England) the work before a food controller, when a population is not made
up of n lot of sheep, as in Germany,
is almost beyond human endeavor,
There appears to be only one way to
control food and that is, control It.
That is to say, if we are eating too
much bacon, a food controller should
not beat about tbe hush and (ell us to
eat less, That, at best, is a half-way
measure. The thing to do is to cut it
off. Make lis consumption in Ibis
country a penal offence, and let it go
at tliat. Let bacon consumers fight it
out with a police magistrate. A
food controller should stick cotton
in his ears, avoid public meetings,
cense reading newspapers or other
public journals likely to criticize, and
refuse to see any private citizens or
deputation with a kick. This is about
the only method by which a food controller can preserve his self-respect
nnd mental balance, if he hopes to
accomplish what he sets out to do.

The British War Office has sanctioned an arrangement whereby one
parcel which does not contain
oilier than specified articles may
be sent each three months by
private individuals hi Canada direct to prisoners of war other
than officers interned abroad. The
parcel must be packed and despatched through the post office by the
relative or friend or the prisoner and
must bear a coupon.
The next of kin has first right to
the coupon and can designate to
whom it may be given if they do not
wish to use It. Persons wishing to
send parcels under this scheme
should apply for the necessary coupons, if they have not already done
so, as early as possible. Coupons for
parcels intended for prisoners belonging to the Canadian Forces are supplied by the Prisoners of War Department, Canadian Red Cross Society

Sir Frederick Smith quotes a dls-

In the end Great Britain would win
the war, and always say she had lost
it, while Germany would lose It, and
always claim she bad won It.
A cablegram from Lord Rhondda.
the British Food Controller, said: 'Unless you are able to send the Allies at
least 75,000.000 bushels of wheat over
and above what you have exported up
to January 1st and iu addition to
the exportable surplus from Canada. I
cannot take the responsibility of assuring our people that there will be
enough food to win the war.' Mr.
Hoover replied: 'We will export every
grain that the American people save
from their normal consumption. We
believe our people will not fail to
meet tbe emergency.'
A memorial from the federal board
of farm organizations has represented
to President Wilson, the difficulty of
maintaining the food production or
last year, and tlie impossibility of
increasing it, in face of the shortage
of farm labor, and of seed, low prices,
lack of credit, nnd exclusion of the
farmer from bis right and necessary
share in the conduct of the war.
Truck growers from Virginia also declare that farmers will lose a million
bushels of potatoes this year. If the
enticement of farm laborers by Industrial concerns is permitted to continue.
