Just how good at canning are
Transylvania women and girls?
This question suggested itself to
day from an announcement in Chi
cago of a National Canning Contest
to find the best jar of canned fruit, |.
vegetables or meat in the country. I (
Twelve hundred and fifty dollars in i ,
cold cash awaits the woman or girl j (
in the United States whose entry is |
selected as the best jar of canned
food entered in the contest.
The contest, which is sponsored by
the Sears - Roebuck Agricultural!1
Foundation, seeks to acquaint more j
housewives with the economy and j 1
healthfulness of home canned foods, i
For years the U. S. department of j ?
agriculture and home demonstration!
agents throughout the country have
worked for inoreased production of ;
native canned foods. It is to further j
this excellent idea and at the same '
time to help absorb the threatened
surplus of farm products in many '
sections, that this canning project i
was conceived.
Two hundred and twenty-two cash
prizes, totalling $5,825, will be dis
bursed to the winners in the contest,
which has three major divisions: fruit
vegetables and meat. The best entry
in each division will be awarded $250
and one of these will also receive the
thousand dollars sweepstakes prize,,
thus bringing the total cash prize for
the best jar of canned food in the
contest to $1,250. Second prize in
each of the three divisions will be
$200, third prize $100, and fourth
prize, $50. There will also be five
prizes of $25 each, ten prizes of $10
each and fifty prizes of $5 each. In
addition, a thousand dollars in cash
will be awarded to the home demon
stration agent whose county sends in
the greatest number of entries, $500
to the agent whose county has the
next largest number, and $100 to the
agent whose county sends in the
third largest number of entries. A
number of lesser merchandise prizes 4
are also offered.
Contest Close* October 15.
According to the rules, the con- 1
test is open to every woman and girl
in the United States. There are no
restrictions as to the nature of the
food sent; and fruit, vegetable or
meat whether home grown or purchas
ed, is acceptable. Contestants may en
ter one, two or all three divisions.
Entries regardless of when canned,
must be sent in not later than Octo- 1
ber 1, which is the closing date of the |
contest. No entries will be returned, !
but instead these will be sent, with
the name and address of the contest- j
ant to an orphanage, hospital, in- 1
firmary or other charitable institu- 1
tion to be selected by the Foundation, j
Specimens of canned fruits and
vegetables in the contests will be
judged on the basis of clearness, col
or, pack, neatness, flavor and tex
ture. Meat specimens will be judged
in their relation to pack neatness,
texture and flavor. There will be
three judges, to be selected by the
Foundation from a list of outstanding
authorities on home economics, do
mestic science, and canned food.
Their decision will be made known
just as soon as possible after Octo
ber 1.
Gives Hint* on Canning
"Any method of canning may be
used for this contest," announces
Anne Williams, director of the con
test. "The use of a steam pressure
cooker, however, is highly recom
mended by canning experts and by j
the U. S. Department oi Agriculture,
especially in canning meats. Not only
does this method of canning save
time and fuel and assure absolutely,
sterility and preservation, but food
canned under pressure retains all its
natural flavor and texture, which are
vital points in any canning contests."
That the judging may be thorough
ly impartial and the display of canned
samples absolutely uniform, con
testants are required to submit their
entries in standard glass jars of the
i quart size. All contestants will be
furnished with one Ball mason jar
and carton for sending in a canned
article, but those making entries in
, more than one division are expected
| to supply their own jars shipping car
i tons. The sample jar and prize entry
[labels for use in submitting entries
may be secured without cost by com
Imunicating with the headquarters of
: | the National Canning Contest, 925
j S. Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.

The State of North Carolina has
made wonderful progress along many
lines but it has to its credit no
more striking achievements than the
results attained by the efforts of its
firemen, teachers, editors and other
public-spirited and forward-looking
citizens who have carried on for years
a relentless warfare against iire
waste and its attendant loss of life
and property. I am glad to be able
to say that there has been improve
ment year by year for the past sever
years. While the records of oui
State Insurance Department cover
ing the seven years between January
1, 1922, and January 1, 1929, shows
a total fire loss of $44,799,499, t
truly staggering amount, the los
was well below the national averag*
and the fire los for the year ending
December 31, 1928, was $4,912,925
a million and a half of dollars un
der the 3even years' average.
I attribute much of this improve
ment to the educational work donf
throughout the State annually dur
ing "Fire Prevention Week' whicl
falls this year in the week of Octo
ber 6th to 12th. While we are proui
of the progress made, the fire loss o
1928 was much t?o great for an ena
lightened citizenship ,such as onrJ
and I appeal to all good citizens tfl
become vitally interested in leBsei#
ing this economic waste.
But the property loss in NcrtK
Carolina last year, heavy as it waS
was not our greatest loss from fir A
The Bureau of Vital Statistics ol
our State Board of Health report!
that two hundred and seventyonl
lives were lost by fire in North Caifl
olina last year. These appaliinjB
losses were caused by carelessneaj
and ignorance of the fire hazard. 1
I, therefore, set aside the week oH
October 6th to 12th as FIRE PftEfl
VENTION WEEK in accordant
ivith Section 6080 of the Consolida?
ed Statutes, which provides that thfl
Governor of North Carolina shall
each year, in October, issue a pro?
lamation urging the people to I
proper observance.
During this week I also urge thi
lire drills be held in schools, facto
ies, and stores, and that they 1
continued at regular intervals.
That schools, theatres, church?
public and private hospitals and ins
tutions, factories and stores and h
tels be inspected and see that eve:
safeguard against fire is provide
and also that exit facilities are su
ficient in caBe of fire.
That local authorities examii
their fire ordinances and make the
sufficient if they are lacking in ai
To this end I urge our citizens
cooperate with our Insurance Coi
missioner, and that every mayor
sue a proclamation. I earnestly i
quest the cooperation of every ei
zen, Chambers of Commerce, Rotar
Lions, Kiwanis, Civitan, Americ
Busines, Monarchs and Wornei
Clubs, and all other civic bodies a
the press.
Now, therefore, I, Oliver M
Gardner, Governor of North Ca
lina, in accordance with law, do is:
this my proclamation, and do

and do urge all the people to
proper observance of this week
