People Are Urged
To Can All Types

(Continued from page 1)
to the officials of the Hazelwood
Mutual Cannery, and authorities
in view of circumstances are urg
ing the people to can vegetables,
fruits and pickles. They predict
that foodstuffs will not only be
higher, but in some cases certain
items will not be available.
Due to the number of men be
ing inducted into the Service the
government will use from 35 to 40
per cent more canned foods than
formerly, and to supply this the
canneries throughout the country
will have to sacrifice other orders
to keep the government contracts.
In fact authorities are predict
ing that the output of canneries
throughout the country will fall
off 50 per cent from last year.
This shortage is due to a number
of reasons, namely, the onfavor
able growing season, the lack of
labor to harvest and property Care
for the crops, and the effect these
conditions have on the increase
of prices of the green vegetable
