More Work , Greater Demand Makes Rationing Necessary By THELMA CRAIG Now we have rationing of tea, of coffee, of sugar, of butter, and pretty soon theres to be rationing of meat, too. What does rationing mean? It is a national plan for dividing fairly the supplies available among all who need them. It U sharing and sharing equally those commodi ties which are necessities of life, which are in short supply. It means that a man with a millions dollars in the bank, for example, cannot buy more sugar than the person with no more than the price of one ration allowance in his pocket. An old friend of the butcher's cannot obtain a greater share of meat than the war worker who has just arrived in town. Everyone is equal in this partnership of making the most and the best of the things we have The fact is that when war upsets Canada's regular economy, rationing is the one measure which the Government can take to ensure equal opportunities for all citizens to obtain the necessities of life when the.e are in short supply. Total war means three things, as K. W. Taylor, foods administrator, Wartime Prices and Trade Board, has said: First, a very large part of our labor and production energies have It last!, A SOAP BBUBLi IDE IIEB of pr childrens clothes Jfs aaifcSuper Suds... 4m (V d,h.

Second, the nations that are directly in the front line, have had to divert even more of their energies than we have, and they are relying on us to supply them with more and more food. Third, our people at home are fully employed, and because they are woiking harder and longei than ever before and have larger money incomes, they are buying and eating more food. And so in spitts uf the fact that our farmers are producing more food in most iinps than ever before, we are faced with some food shortages in Canada . , . that is, we have less of some kinds of foods than our people want to buy and eat. That is why rationing is inevitable." By rationing the meat that is available, after obligations have been met to those who are keeping the war from Canada's shores, sky-rocketing of prices, and hoarding can be pi evented And most important, the supplies Canada has can be used to the greatest public advantage in maintaining the health and efficiency of our people.

These people, she said, wanted to stay in Canada, and they had to be made feel that they were wanted, not just tolerated. By our attitude we can show the Government," she said, our approval of more immigrants for the post-war period." Miss Hayward started her story with the flight of refugees four years before the war began, telling of present refugees who were then assisting others to escape from European countries. It was not merely a question of Jewish folk for there were many in Germany, Czecho-Slovakia and Austria, who resisted Hitlers power and sought freedom in England and other !and$. When war started there were between fifty and sixty thousand German refugees in England, who had been twice investigated and regarded as friendly aliens working at shipbuilding and other key work in factories. After Dunkirk there was temporary internment and fur ther investigations. Many were re leased and some sent to refugee camps, there to receive further in spection. When the Canadian Committee on Refugees was formed in 1938, it was started to help with permits without financing them and to help establish the newcomers in Canada. It endeavored to tell the public about the refugee problem and the value these immigrants, in many cases, were to the country. Immigration laws did not make it easy to get permits, the speaker said. Every individual entered as a separate case which meant a great deal of work. Permits were given principally to those with enough money to get along, and to those with special skill. It became easier as the need for these highly trained folk increased. Miss Hayward told some fascinating stories of men who had made good on the land and in industry, of those who had developed new types of work and employed hundreds of Canadian people. The first naval gun to come out of Canada, bhe said, had come from a refugees plant. Many of them were experts in making precision tools. One had set up a silk plant and was now manufacturing rayon and gun powder bags. Another was drying hemlock for export and making plywood for airplane wings. They weie not satisfied to be merely refugees but eager to help the nation's war effort. There were engineers and technicians who had been woiking at miJhitions until the last minute, mostly Polish men, who escaped through Siberia and Japan and were now employed in Canada There were outstanding chemists, doctors, artists and musicians, whose contribution and value to this country could not be estimated. These were the people who wanted to make Canada their home and the speaker hoped that they were being given a friendly feeling of welcome. Mrs, A. J, Irving thanked Miss Hayward for her interesting address, Mrs. J. F. Bryant, who presided, announced two Canadian Club speakers Major II. G. Scott for Thursday evening and Vernon Bartlett for Monday afternoon, May 10. She also appealed for volunteer workers to help staff the War Stamp tooths on Canadian Club day. HANDKERCHIEF WASHING What with the present variable spring weather, and any number of colds floating around, this seems the right time of year to remind you that washing handkerchiefs is much less unpleasant and laborious if they are soaked beforehand in a solution of common salt and cold water. This dissolves the mucus and it Is then only necessary to pop them Into some suds that float the dirt away without hard rubbing or scrubbing. When soaking, use two ounces of salt to a quart of water.

Meat Ration Will Be Sufficient for Nutritional Needs Nutrition-minded Canadians and all Canadians are nutrition-minded these days, are asking, Is the meat ration big enough to meet nutritional needs " The answer, from Dr. L. B. Pott, director of nutritioq services at Ottawa, is a definite Yes." Doctor Pott Is one of several outstanding nutritionists who form an advisory committee on nutrition to the Foods Administration. After making a very thorough study of the nutritional aspects of meat rationing, this committee reported that the meat ration "plus customary and available amounts of milk, cheese, eggs, fish and poultry, gives more protein from animal sources than is required for a person of any occupation. Protein, the principal food element in meat, has a vety specialized nutritional Job to do. the job of building and repairing body tissues. When more protein is eaten than Is required for this work, the surplus is used to provide heat and energy which is the function of starches, sugars and fats. Eating more protein than is needed is like employing a highly qualified specialist to do a job that can be done just as well and more cheaply by someone else. In fact its not sound economy. Meat rationing will certainly I bring changes in the eating habits of the people of Canada. especially ( those people with fairly comfortable incomes, for the use of meat increases as the family income rises. The advent of meat rationing1 does not mean, however, that the1 Canadian diet will Buffer from the standpoint of nutritional adequacy. FERRYING r LANES LONDON.

W. Estey Outlines Proposed Scheme; Mr. R. M. Pinder Speaks Health Insurance, a subject soc-ond In importance to the war in the minds of the people, In his opinion, was the subject of an address by the Hon. J. W. Estey, attorney general for the Province of Saskatchewan, at an open meeting of the Saskatoon Womens Liberal Club, held In thp 1.0 O.F. hall, Tuesday evening Mr. Estey said he felt that what people were inteicsted in was a program that would advance the welfare of the people from a social and physical pont of view. The Federal committee set up to study this question, he said had recommended that a preventative program was necessary. It had also recommended that the scheme must embrace every pet son, must be national in scope and that there must be compulsory contribution. The Dominion Government, Mr. Estey said, would collect and administer the scheme. The Federal organization would be under the Department of Pensions and National Health and the Dominion Council of Health. In the Provinces there would be a commission presided over by a doctor who had been in practice at least ten years. The Provinces would be zoned to provide medical care and to prevent concentration of medical services. Benefits from this scheme, he said, would be complete medical and nursing services, hospitalization, medicine and dental care, the cost of which would be $26 a year for overy adult earning $8 66 or more. Saskatchewan, he continued, had been commended as one of two Provinces in the entire Dominion which had an adequate system to take care of tuberculosis patients, and also for its medical care in rural districts, A committee, Mr. Estey pointed out, had been sot up in the Provincial Legislature to study this scheme of health insurance. Its interim report had suggested that it was satisfied from the data presented to it, that there was a need in the Province for extending health and socinl services, and that there was a willingness on the part of the people to pay for this service. Before concluding, Mr. Estey spoke briefly for the current Victory I.oan, urging its support. Mr. R. M. Pinder, M.L.A., also addressed the meeting. He gave some of his impressions of the past session of the Provincial Legislature, stating that it was the busiest session he had attended. He paid tribute to Premier W. J. Patterson for his fine budget speech. In specking of social security, he said he hoped that when it came down it would be a properly worked out bill end as strong as the Rock of Gibraltar. He said that when he looked overseas and saw the amount of supplies that would be needed after the war he felt It would be a long time before this country had an unemployment problem, as Canada would be Just as busy making supplies for peace as it had been for war, in the period of reconstruction. Mr. Pinder also urged the support of the Victory Loan, saying that had it not been for the heroic stand of Great Britain, Canadians would not now be & free people In a free country. Mrs. Carl Niderost, president of the club, introduced the speakers and Mrs. C. L. Durie expressed the pleasure of the Womens Liberal Club at having Mr. Pinder and Mr. Estey at the meeting.

British Women, Young, Old Engaged in Vital War Jobs Today In Britain, women, young and old, are engaged in war woik. The wotk they do is hard, and the hours are long A normal week tangos from 48 to 54 hours. Rationing. blackouts, long distances to and from woik, separation of families all press heavily both on the industrial woiker and the housekeeper. Early In 1941, the Ministry of Labor was given power of direction over women. Under this. British women could be called upon to register In age groups, and then posted where most needed. In December. 1941, these poweis were extended and women can, as nnH ti.HAn nanln4 R a nh.n.jn(A,i and when needed, be conscripted for national service. Not compulsion, however, but the eagerness of the women to serve on the one hand, and the power of direction of the Minister of Inbor on the other, has assembled the vat army of wompn now working and assigned to the vast range of tasks now performed with such success. By the autumn of 1D42, in addition to women in the uniformed services, auxiliary civil defence, nursing and police, there were nearly 7,000.000 women in Britain working full-time in industry. Another 250,000 were working part-time. Adding to these numbers the uniformed women, and the women doing full-time unpaid work In the Womens Voluntary Services and other organizations, the number left out of war activity becomes very small. The Minister of Labor tan and does schedule essential lines of woik from which women workers may not move or be taken. This covers agriculture, canteen and hostel staff, the civil defence services, coal, cotton spinning and weaving, dentistry, hospital services. teaching, tiansport, and public utility services. British women's war efforts can be divided into four main groups First comes the uniformed services, including civil defence and police.
