Plans Are Going Right
Ahead To (iive Area Quiek
Freezing Service On Foods.
One of the three quick-freezing1
units, frozen foods lockers and meat i
curing vaults, to be rented to in- i
dividuals or families will be built
in Waynesville, it has been an
nounced by the directors of the
Farmers Federation. The1 other
two units will be in Ashovilie and
Henry Francis and Arthur Os
bourne, both directors of the Fede
ration, are ni.mltrs of the central
committee to work out details of'
the units, including selection of
the site. 1
Plans are going right ahead to
set up the units as soon as possi-
ble, with war priorities considered.
Engineers have been in the area 1
studying the plans, anil have been !
in conference with the officials of
the Federation. j
Present plans are to name a ,
committee of 10 or 12 local peo-1
pie to act as an advisory committee
in establishing the unit, an official
told The Mountaineer yesterday.
Much interest is being shown
here in the plan, and a number of I
farmers have already sought defi
nite information as to ost of rent
ing one of the lockers.
Under this plan food vaults or t
lockers, which will be kept at a
temperature of about zero, will be
provided, in which farmers and
other patrons may store frozen I
meats and vegetables and take
them out as needed. Each patroR
will be provided an individual ;
The Farmers' Federation will
provide an expert meat cutter who
i will cut up a hog, a beef, or other
incuts into convenient shapes and
sizes and cuts. These cuts may j
thin be wrapped in heavy hoisture
; proof paper, quick frozen, and
plac. d in the lockers. The locker I
patron may call once or twice a
'week and remove what is required ;
from bis -locker. "
Vegetables, fruits and berries
may also b- frozen and preserved.
The gardner w ho grows more as-1
paragus, corn, strawberries, or
other such products than he uses i
in season can take his fresh vege- '
tables to the freezer unit, have!
them properly packaged in wax
containers, frozen in the quick j
freezer chamber, anil then placed
m his locker.
The quick freeze chamber will
be an important part of the lay
out, for it is there that meats and
i vegetables will be quick-frozen at
i sub-zero temperatures before being
placed in the lockers.

Cannery Plans To
About July First
Good Prices Will Be Paid
For Beans Under Land O'
The Sky Contracts.
During the coming week the ma
chinery of the Haywood Mutual
Cannry will be tested for any pos
sible leaks that may have develop
ed during the months it has been
closed, in anticipation of steaming
up for rracking the 250-acre bean
crop of the 18 Haywood County
farmers who have signed contracts
with the Lan O' The Sky Coopera
tives. The 250 acres of string beans will
total around 570,000 pounds of
beans and will bring thousands of
dollars to the local farmers.
It is expected that the cannery
will be ready for the 1943 crop
around the first of July, when can
ning operations will start up along
with the first picking of beans, ac
cording to J. E. Barr, manager of
the Cooperatives of which the local
plant is a member.
Beans will be the only product
canned in the Haywood plant this
season, due to the fact that the
government has rationed the numb
er of cans allowed the cannery.
The pack for the year is esti
mated U total around 26 car loads,
and the cans alone will cost around
$10,000. Number two and number
ten cans are packed in the cannery
The government has requisition
ed 21 per cent of the 1943 products,
based on the output of the can
nery last year, plus four per cent
of the output, to be set aside which
they may take or not take as need
ed. The Haywood farmers will be
paid five cents a pound for the
fancy beans which are used in the
"Our Betsy" pack, four and one
blf cents for the extra standard'
and four cents a pound for the
When the cannery is going at
full tilt there will be between fifty
and seventy-five persons employed.
The snipping machine will run day
and night, and in the peak opera
tions period, there will be night
shifts in other departments.
The crops in Haywood are look
ing good in most vicinities, accord
ing to Mr. Barr, who feels that on
the whole there will be a good ave
rage of other peak years of pro
There are four canneries in the
Land O' The Sky Cooperatives. In
addition to the Hazelwood plant
are: Murphy, Gi'en Mountain and
Cranberry. The total contracted
acreage for the four canneries for
this year will be approximately
875 acres. The value of the cann
ed pack for the four canneries has
been estimated s' $205,000. When
reduced to number tw,o cans will
fill 105,588 cases, or 39,000 cases of
number of ten cans and 750 cases of
two and one-half cans.
The cost of cans in the four co
operatives will run around $45,000.
Beans will not be handled on
the green vegetable market this
year as the present support of can
ned beans is mora profitable.
