"Last month  in London the Red Coss had calls for  7615 cases of supplies. They had but  2812 on hand. . "such is the appalling statement that is made. What is  causing women- to  slacken  their  efforts in this fashion?  Has the    war  been so prolonged that what at first  was almost a fashionable fad has now  become  just   "uninteresting   work"?  This can not be.    But the truth    remains, Red Cross workers need some  rousing.    However Canada is not the  only slacker.     From London a correspondent writes:   "JiiBt as there are.  black sheep in every foid.so there is a  certain number of'slackers among the  aristocratic  war   workers���������fair "ones  who do just enough nursing or canteen work or munition    making    or  labor on the land to have the    rigui  to wear the pisturesciuc    garb    associated with these- industries    and    to  gut their photographs in tlie illnsti.i-  ted papers.    thiB satisfactorily effoc-  . ted, the ������������������enthusiasm of these swankers  as they are dubbed by    lueir    scornful and earnest sisters, soon suffers a  perceptible wane and  the  hospitals,  factories anad workrooms that knew  them for a brief space know them no  more.    Such triflers, however, represent the    smallest    minorities,    the  thing that chiefly strikes one in connection with the fair ones, titled    or  otherwise, who    are    doing    lieipfi.l  work in connction with tlie war, being the 'determination and    dogged-  ness with which they stick to it.    A  good example is pretty and    quaintly  named Lady Mary Cecilia    Rhodesia  Hamilton,    eldest daughter    of    the  Duke of Abercorn, who has kept    on  with her munitions work at the pickers works for over a year, in spite of  one rather bad accident, and who apparently has not tho slightest notion  of quitting."      It is    interesting    to  note, by the way,    that    this    lady's  engagement has just been announced  to     Col.     Kenyon-Slaney,     aide-decamp to the Duke of Devonshire.  that the rapidly rising price of food stuffs  means that the World's reserve supply is  getting small ?  Uelp  mar'  th*.VL.rt   Germany's   desperate   sub-  .nc thrut.t on the high seas.  GAT**  DO YOU KNOW-  that a  world-wide   famine   can   only  averted by increasing this supply ?  toe  DO YOU KNOW-  that a " food famine " would b^ a wr  disaster to the Empire and her Allies  reverses in the Field ?  rse  than  Y<"ju Can���������  do this by helping to make every bit of  land in Canada produce-the very iu*l  pound of fcx.d stuffs cf which it is capaole.
