"On the surface of the butterflies' wings are soft, tiny feathers, set row upon row like the shinies on your nrnmrna'a hourfe. When you hold the butterfly in your hot hands these tiny, feathers are rubbed off. and they never grow out again. It hurts Just as much tia pulling your hair out.

STRAOS Pnridmt jtnuncfn Sadaj Jir Thrift Nothing is of greater importance just now than a strong, united e c o n o m i c front. From all reports the people of the Central Powers are in a. serious condition from lack of food and other necessities:How far they are from complete exhaustion is a matter that cannot be. told with accuracy. But this is not the point under discussion. The point is this: America went into the war, fresh and vigorous, and through our quick adoption of thrift practices our virility is today superior to what, it was last April. Our productivity has increased in fabulous amount and we .have only scratched the surface of our possibilities. No man among us, even .by the wildest sweep of imagination, can depict the potential possibilities of thu great nation which reaches from the Atlantic to the Pacific and extends its beneficent arms across the Pacific. During the winter 5ust drawing ID a ctose our principal duty was' food · and fuel conservation--the elimination of every form of. waste. . Today ( it is as imperative that jn addition we begin to speed up ir-'jr productiveness.. We are rounding into a new spring and summer with their vast possibilities of food production, and it is| just as necessary for each of .us to do his full share in producing new- food a* it is our doty to prevent waste. Not_ all of us can farm the broad American-acres, or go out to sea and bring", hack the food that is found beneath the waves. But there are not many of us who cannot join the mtgh'ty army of war gardners or war. poultrjmen. Last year the average war garden in America covered one-tenth of an acre of ground and yielded 636 .pounds of food. Now thae are 5,000,000 families in the United (Mates who are not farmers, but whtf are so situated that they can plant a garden. If each of this'great number of families planted a, garden of the average size and yield of last year, the railroads, now £o overcrowded, would be relieved of carrying 160,000 carloads of vegetables. This norobcr of cars then would be released to carry other food, ammunition and coal. Is your Jamily one of the 5,0001000 ' that America needs to speed, up it* food production? ' If "food wiil win the war" it ia jnst as important to make plenty of food as it is to make plenty of guns and build an abundance of chips. Each of us can become a producer; of food as -well ti a cooaerrator of it. Plant a garden or raise chickens fojj tfodeun.
