Lord Rhondda Cables:
"We Cannot Achieve Victory Without Food."
" Canada Food Board,
" Ottawa
" In these stern days it is. inspiring to learn that Canada is tackling the
food problem with redoubled energy. The terrific pressure on our
military front makes it all the more imperative that tnose behind the
line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of
destroying the British Empire.
"Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine
campaign and then to smash her land forces. She has failed to starve
us and she will fail to smash us but we cannot achieve victory without
food. There never was a time when it was more needed.
"The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the
opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present
onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased
production of those food supplies for which we depend to such vital
extent upon your great Dominion."
(Signed)       " RHONDDA"
London, April 10th
The Prime Minister of Canada, in
a call to Greater Food Production,
says: " The crisis is grave and urgent
beyond possibility of exaggeration."
Our Allies are depending upon
Canada to produce this year more
cereals—especially Spring Wheat—and
more meat—especially Pork.
The world shortage will inevitably
continue for years after the war—with
{his continent the nearest source of
supply for the 200,000,000 persons in
Europe who will be clamoring for food.
Measures have been taken and plans
have been formulated which, on thc
authority of the Director of Agricultural
Labor, will provide help needed for
harvest.
City and town people who cannot
go on the farms are helping to feed
themselves by growing their own vepet-
ables, so that the farmers may grow
more food for export.
The food crisis calls for the utmost
effort by all the people of Canada, because, as Lord Rhondda says, Food it
essential to Victory.

FARM TO FAMILY.
Two dollars and forty cents
was the price paid for a bag of
potatoes by a Kingston lady, according to a recent press report.
One of the potatoes had a card
attached signed by the farmer
who grew them, which said: "I
sold at $1.00; what did you pay?"
Here again we are faced with
the ubiquitous middleman, concerning whose elimination much
ink has been shed. Now there
are middlemen and middlemen,
which is to say that some middlemen are necessary and some are
not, and the best way to find out
whether a given middleman is
necessary or not is to try to get
along without him.
The farmer and the city householder are- generally supposed to
be the worst victims of the middlemen and, if the victimizing
can be lessened in this case, there
should be some hope in others.
Here is a suggestion looking toward the accomplishment of that
end. Let the newspapers in the
larger centres of population feature a "Farm to Family," section in their condensed want ad.
page. This would carry advertisements of farmers who had
produce to sell to the city consumer and a'so advertisements of
the consumer who wanted to buy
from the farmer. To get the
movement started, a half-price
rate might be offered and the
new departure should be well
advertised in the news columns
of the paper.
The advertising manager having the courage to make this
venture would gain considerable
fame for his paper and would also prove conclusively whether
the farmer and the consumer
really do want to get rid of the
middleman.—M. J. P.
those unacquainted with the
present status of our wild life
and with the progress of game
legislation and its enforcement.
The chief cause of depletion has
been either the absence of game
laws or the laxity of its enforcement. The struggle to prevent
extermination has been very uphill work, but, owing to the attitude of the real sportsmen, as
opposed to the market hunters
and "game hogs", and of the
public generally, steady progress
has been made.
"To relax these efforts at the
present time would more than
outdo the results of the hard
work and effort of years and
would he catering to those individuals who have been the greatest enemies to game conservation
men who are entirely selfish in
their point of view and who have
very little interest in the welfare
of the country as a whole. In
the West, this class is largely
made up of foreigners. To all
these persons who violate the
game laws on all occasions, food
conservation has no meaning,
and any relaxation of the game
laws would simply legalize their
destructive tendencies to the detriment of the rights of game and
the rights of those who are accustomed to observe the law.
"The amount of wild meat that
would be comparatively small,
but the destruction involved in
obtaining it would affect, in the
most serious manner possible,
the future of our game animals.
In cases of absolute want or necessity it is always possible for
the provincial game officers to
make special arrangements under
permit."
RELAXATION OF GAME
LAWS INADVISABLE
The scarcity of food has resulted in various government organizations, directly concerned,
being flooded with suggestions
for the relaxation of game laws,
and the Commission of Conservation has taken some pains to ascertain just what effect such a
course would have. The conclusion reached is that it would have
no appreciable effect in relieving
the shortage of meat and would
result in the very serious depletion, and in some cases the total
extinction, of valuable game
species. Many well-intentioned
persons in making such suggestions overlook the fact that wild
game, once it is depleted to a
certain point, will, even under
natural conditions, continue to
decrease until extinct and can
never, as in the case of domestic
animals, be restored. '
Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, in referring to
such proposals, said in part:
"While these suggestions are undoubtedly made with the best of
intentions, they would, if put into practice, undoubtedly result
in consequences of a most serious

CANADA.
Ottawa, April 19th, 1918.
With regard to the arrangement instituted whereby correspondence of a private and family
nature can be forwarded from
individuals in Canada to persons
in enemy and enemy„ occupied
territory through the medium of
Thos. Cook & Son, 230 St. Catherine St,, W. Montreal, difficulty
is being caused owing to persons
remitting the charge for forwarding these letters (35c.) by
postage stamps instead of by
means of a Postal Note for 30c.
with 5c. in postage affixed thereto.
The attention of persons sending such correspondence is particularly directed to this as in
future, where the charges are
remitted by means of postage
stamps the ^letters will be returned to the senders.

An   Efficient   Service,
Always   Available.
Speaking of the great telephone system of the
United States, Theodore Vail said: " Its essential
feature is preparedness."
Just think how this applies even in British
Columbia: Whenever you want to telephone you
will find it always ready for you; should interruption occur, to the service, it is soon removed; day
in, day out, night and at all times, you can talk
near or far. The great co-operative factor is the
supervising force behind the scenes.

Get Behind the Wheel
of a Ford and Drive
TRY it just onee! Ask your friend to let you "pilot" his
car on an open stretch. You'll like it, and will be surprised how easily the Ford ia handled and driven.
If you have never felt the thrill of driving your own car,
there is something good in store for you. It is vastly
different from just ruling—being a passenger. And especially so if you drive a Ford.
Young boys, girls, women and even grandfathers—thousands of them—are driving Ford cars and enjoying it. A
Ford stops and starts in traffic with exceptional ease and
smoothness, while on country roads and bills its strength and
power show to advantage.
Buy a Ford and you will want' to be behind "the wheel"
constantly.

Save Beef! Save Money!
Save Coal!
The following statistics should be interesting to all who
are interested ir. the conservation of either Beef, Coal
or money:
Weight of Joint Weight to be ordered from Butcher
when cooked when cooking is done by
Electricity Coal or Wood
4 pounds 4 pounds 8 oz. 5 pounds 1102.
6 pounds 6 pounds 13 oz. 8 pounds 9 oz.
.   8 pounds 9 pounds 2 oz. 11 pounds 7 oz.
10 pounds 11 pounds 6 oz. 14 pounds S oz.
12 pounds 13 pounds 10 oz. 17 pounds 2 oz.
The above figures are given in the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers and are the results of
actual experiments.
With beef at 30c. a pound you will pay $1.72 for a
51b lloz. roast, or $1.35 for a 4tb 8oz. roast.
Thus if you cook the meat in an.electric oven you
will save for yourself 37 cents, and for your country lib
3oz. of beef. Think of it! 20% of our meat supply
wasted in coal stoves. This means that you will get
equal to a
Discount of 20% on your meat bill
if you cook by electricity, and you will be saving beef
money and coal for the boys at the front.

is permanent and never wears out.
The Records used are double-disc, and are indestructible—lasting a life time.
It comes in a variety of finishes and woods to match any
setting.
Mr. Edison's remarkable genius and his years of strenuous
work have resulted in this instrument, which iB as nearly
perfect as human ingenuity can make it.

Vast Issues Depend Upon
the Welfare of Our Men!
Cheer Up and Thanh God for the Y.M.CA.
TRY to picture yourself in the muddy cold trenches after
exciting days and long nights of mortal clanger and intense nervous strain. Rushing "whiz-bangs" and screaming "coal boxes" are no respecters of persons. You are hit!
But despite shock and pain you still can face the long weary
trudge back to dressii.g station. Weary, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imaginings of that other coming
ordeal with the surgeon. There are other "walking wounded,"
tool   You must wait, wait, wait.    And then—
Up comes a cheery Y.M.CA. man, the ever-present "big brother"
to the soldier, with words of manly encouragement. Close beside the dressing station the good generous folks at home have
enabled him to set up a canteen. lie hands you biscuits, and
chocolate or coffee.

Canada-Wide Appeal
"In thousands cf cases," writes an t fiiccr, "it was that first hot
cup of coffee that dragged the man back to life and sanity."
The tremendous helpfukess of the Y MCA. as an aid to the
"morale," or fighting spirit, of the Boldlers is everywhere
praised. No wonder tlie Germans make every effort to smash
the Y.M.CA. huls out cf existence.
The Y.M.CA. is everywhere. You first met thc helpful,
manly Y.M.CA. worker i'l camp, then on train and boat, at
camp in England and in France, cl se to the firing line. Often
he risks his life to reach yi it in the trenches: Me has won Ihe
warmest praise from military authorities, statesmen—the King!
Have you a precious boy at the front? Yru cannot be "over
there" to guide him away from fierce temptations of camp and
city. You cannot comfort him in his supreme hour of trial.
Your parcels to him are necessarily few. Hut the Y.M.CA.,
thai.k God, is "over there," goh g where you cannot go—doing
the very things you long to do—doing il lor you and for him.
Will you help? This vast organization of helpfulness needs at
least $2,250,000 from Canada for 1018. For your boy's sake be
GENEROUS!!

The price of paper is practically double what it was in normal
