There : is i-jjpugh food for everyone, but not enough- of the. same kind of food everyone has liked best. There are several things we can do, to keep our armed forces, ourselves and our fighting Dallies . adequately fed de- use,volunteer expert advice. SHORTAGE OF COOKERS The government warns enthusiasts in elites and 'built-up suburban areas where land Is not nood 'or growing; that your willingness :o plant must be disciplined by your ability to raise good crops economically. Seeds and fertilizer re war equipment and must not be wasted. The home canning picture Is clouded by shorlage of pressure cookers needed for non-ncl'l (starchy) vegetables and meat, Al- hough 275,000 new ones are prom- sed under government permit they probably will not be delivered until July or August, .and even that lumber will hardly be enough for community use. . Some state agencies recommend water-bath procesclng for all foods —boasting that their 'states do not le In the , "botullnus belt" and that therefore food .raised there docs not have to be canned by i>res- sure cooker. Although It is true that bdtulJnUS .food..spoilage has occurred mostly in the Pacific coast, mountain,.and plain states the Department of , Agriculture wnrns that bacteria are no respec- tors of state boundaries. :t recom- hcnds water-bath .carinlng only for tomatoes' and fruiU., But for corn, jeas, beans, chicken, meat and other non-acid foods they recom- ncnd .steam pressure which kills dangerous bacteria. NEED NEW RECIPES Not only times, but also fruits spite, setbacks: first, buy carefully, cMpcrate with rationing programs, t{i>d banish waste; second, increase our skill at home gardening; third, inake sure/ that every one of .the estimated Jive billion jars of home- canned food in 1943 is 100 per cent .,. . ,. .. 15 per tent of our and vegetables have changed. Plant scientists have altered. the chemical conlltiioncy' of many crops and for that reason the old- time tables for canning are likely to be unsuccessful. The only practical way to prevent waste of the fruits of your Victory Garden Is lo use the latest scientifically - tested Instructions. The Department of Agriculture Is now prinllnc a lined folder on "Wartime Canning of Fruits and Vegetables." Free sample copies will be ready abou^ June 15. Bulk lots can br: purchased Ih'rough the Superintendent of Document.!, Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C. • SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON edible. ..We -was led total food supply last year, according to Dr. Klisscll M. Wilder, CI~ ' l\Kxt That \;HIan Requirements" chief; Distribution Administration. w«3 more-food than the Ariiiy -arid Navy and Lend-Lensc, togelher, used.-L ' ' "' ': More homemakers ' will have to attend modern cooking and nutrition courses,*-and determine to "starve the . garbage can." More of', us.jnust learn ,t<ve'at- wholesome foo'd's" we have been spurning or neglecting A Peanuts and soybeans, for,. example^ jwlU soon become-fa^ nilliar In ;famlly;menus as sources of. low,-°cost available protein.' Wholegraine'd breads and cereals must be eaten more frequently because of their high mineral, vl- (aijiin and "protein content,'as; well as4 their abundance. Fish-from, our risers and'oceans' and game from our forests-will be used increasing- lyi'No available and wholesome foods can be wasted through care- lesjness or-.non-use in'the face of present news. SEKIOUS, NOT. DESPERATE Although, the food crisis may bo'serious," it'certainly is not des- pctate. We aren't facing any famine!. We don't actually know the meaning of. : the word in the Unit- BY WIM.IAM . E. GILROY, D. D. The Christian-life,' even in times of fiery trial, • is not all a matter, of persecution. Peter, who has comforted his fellow Christians under trial, brings further help to them as he assures them of the promises of Ood. He sets before these Christians the highest experience to which men could possibly' attain, for he assures them that they may become partakers of the divine nature. But men do not become partakers of . the divine nature all at once, or by some . miraculous ' act. performed for them. 11 is by his own will and action that man appropriates, or takes to himself, God's grace and God's character. It Is because man may be n partaker of the divine nature that he must show all diligence In adding to his 'faith virtue, and in adding to virtue, knowledge, and in adding to knowledge/ self-control, and, to self-control patience, and to patience godliness, and to godliness;, brotherly kindness. J - Tfe 56 manifestations of' the Christian - life arc all intcrfelateci and : pne grows out of the other. The true Christian character is well-rounded and developed- It is not angular or lopsided. If we are strong in some virtue, but lacking in another, we are to that extent still un-Christian. These qualities, ads, and attitudes are the fruits of the Christian life. If they be in the Christian and abound, the Christian Peter says, Is fruitful. One thinks^ inevitably of Paul's 1st of the- fruits of the Spirit as they are llslert in Gnlatlnns 5-22- ed" States. Another phrase misunderstood widely is, "Victory Garden." II is not. a hobby'/ It's a war necessity demanding discipline, skills and .persistence." Many home.gardeners FaJ heavy- rains and bad weather eitjier delayed planting or else ruined •'• their seeds. But experts urge you to replant up to the mid- dl^.of July, later In .the south. Ujttuce, turnips, Brussels sprouts, broccoli,--.' kale-and tomatoes" arc good for late planting; Victory Gardeners must be realistic about, gardening skills. In too many communities, OCD's block system of garden leaders hnsn't worked put well. Where there is strong '• leadership and good organization,. progress Is being made. But elsewhere, potentially good crdps-will suffer from failure to option of Jesus, their faith in Him, nd the way In which His salva- ,on was realized and manifested, hcse two great pillars of the early liurch were so much In agreement hat whole portions of the letters f one could be substituted for por- lons In letters of the other wlth- iut any brea in emphasis or nieun- ng. For both had learned of Jesus, ind owed all their wisdom and cn- ightcnment to Him. Bits of Mottfjr remnal Mrs. 11, C.
