'tl est; A Good 6-PAGES TODAY ~ Home Agent Sees | Great Need For Storage Places Farm Women Need Better Facilities For Storing The Foodstuffs They Preserve During Summer MEN SHOULD HELP IN THIS UNDERTAKING They Are Handier With Nails, Saws And Other Tools And Should Construct Facilities BY .MISS ALENE McLAMB 1 Visiting many homes in Brunsvick during my first seve:al nonths as home demonstration igent, I have learned that much ood has been preserved during he summer months. As we tnow, the canning season is not' ret over. It is encouraging to enow that such a tremendous imount of food has been put iway and is being saved for Winer. It is fairly certain that lespite the war being over food vill still be scarce this winter ind every bit saved between now ind frost will come in handy in he homes before another spring irings with it a vegetable and iuic viup. In this county very little in 1 he way of fruits has been dried, "his is because of the climate and he humidity being too great to ] tore dry foods, unless they are laced in airtight containers. I have noted with gratification hat all of the housewives are roud of the foods they have anned this year, and they have right to be. It is an almost aily occurance for some house- . rife to boastingly tell me of how ' lany quarts and gallons of sodstuff she has put up for the /inter. The greatest general roblem at the present time seems o be the lack of facilities to | tore away such food. Most oft he ladies are having to store heir canned goods in odd corners, j ince they are not gifted in the se of nails, saws and hammers, : seems to be a responsibility of he men folks that better storage icilities be arranged. j An adequate and attractive torage place can be provided by areful planning and the use of small amount of money. Wheth-I r the storage space be an out- j ide building, a celler, or a closet, j ; should be located near the itchen. It must be cool in ummer and frostproof in winter, hich means that it must be iehtlv constructed. If commercial insulation is not j vailable pasteboard may be tack-' 1 d on the walls, floors, ceiling nd doors. The place must be ne that will be dry at all times, j It must also be well ventilated f fruits and vegetables, other ban those in airtight containers, re to be stored. The size of the room naturally epends on the amount of can- j ed food the family needs and1 hould keep. If the room has J indow shades should be used to \ re vent the sunlight from dis- I oloring foods in glass containers, t lie storage space should contain t dequate, well braced, shelves of s esirablc depth and height for if torage of all types of containers. ] Lets get busy and demand of j lie men folks their cooperation'r o the extent that we arc provid- u d with adequate and attractive laces In which we may store our anned foods. Its value is such lat it deserves better attention, istead of just being left around nywhere. Much food that reuired a great deal of lahor to ather from the trees and vegeable gardens is often spoiled beause it does not receive proper ttention after being canned.

Annie Mae Woodside that all schools, white and colored, will open for the fall session tomorrow (Thursday) with the exception of the Shallotte school which will open next Monday. September 10. The delay is due to the fact that the new teacherage will not be teady for occupancy until Saturday. The building is not yet completed but construction has reached such a stage that the structure can be occupied at that time. The Shallotte School will open at 9:30 on Monday morning and parents and friends are invited to attend the 1 opening exercises. A report from Miss Woodside this morning indicated that the teacher shortage existing a short I time ago now seems largely overicome. Whereas the white schools ' were short around fifteen teachers 1 ten days ago there now seems | to be a shortage of only three or i four in all. Prof. G. O. Rogers, who was principal, at Whiteville for many years, heads the Southport school; Prof. Glenn M. Tucker, who has been in charge at Bolivia for j seven years, will be in charge at ' Leland this year; Prof. Henry C. j Stone is again in charge at ShalI lotte where he has headed the school for about a dozen years; J Prof. J.

Owing to the great need of the building he has pushed the work to the utmost and will have the structure ready for oc- ,! cupancy two or three weeks ahead of the expected time. He stated to the Pilot Monday that lie i would not have it done this week i but it could be occupied Saturday. He also stated that the other new teacherage at Ash, - ij for the Waccamaw school, would ,1 be ready for use the latter part of October. Miss Woodside stated today that the Shallotte teacherage h^s 12 rooms for non-rcaident tcucM- > | ers. All rooms have a semi-private j bathroom.
