A THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER A Brief Respite from Affairs of State i n "7 if. ! Women Rush Hosiery Counters As U. S. Refuses Japan Silk To Enter Country In one of his Increasingly rare photos, President Roosevelt Is shown playing with his favorite Scotty, Falls, as Mrs. Roosevelt knits in their Hyde Park home. There is nothing in this calm scene to indi cate the stormy national and international situation with which the Chief Executive has to cope. People Are Urged To Can All Types Of Food This Year (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 market Hosiery departments in Way Hosiery departments in Waynes ville having been doing a rushing business since last week-end, when news came that no more silk from Japan could be shipped into this country.

Almost alt sales were for two or more pairs, it was said.'' One merchant said It wasn't a matter of selling the hose, it was just getting the size, with colors being ignored in many instances.
