never dreamed of, her modem

the table in a matter of hours.
It was almost 200 years after
Governor William Bradford de
creed a day of thanksgiving that
canning was invented. A candy
maker named Nicolas Appert
published the report of his in
vention in 1810, after collecting
the prize of 12,000 francs that
the French government had of
fered for a method of preserving
food for its troops.
Now the housewife can sim

pumpkin, or cranberry sauce—or
any of the other foods that

Or, she can roast a frozen
turkey and open a package of
frozen corn, part of the $2 bil

produced annually, according to

foods on ice, but it was the me

Egg Output In State
A State College poultry spe

production for 1961 as a result
of current prices.
“North Carolina needs an ex

the specialist, Bill Jasper. ‘‘But
let’,, not take it to the ex

No one wants a price year
