Creston News Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 3, 1944, Creston, Iowa
Fitce of a news , Creston Iowa saturday june 3, 1944. Oven Canning method proved too dangerous this editorial comment is written at the request of the National safety Council and is intended As a Benefit and pro i Section to the millions of housewives who will soon be Busy in the work of the 1914 a scanning season. A Good Many suggestions Are made As to things that should be done and that should not be done but the chief item in the list is concerned with the a oven Canning methods. Done to use it. Last year just about this time was quite a Campaign launched in support of the oven Canning and apparent by it was adopted on a fairly wide scale. It works Well too when it works but it is too dangerous. The safety Council announces that More than eighty percent of All the Home Canning accidents in 1943 were due to women using this oven Canning system. There were so Many Home Canning accidents last year that they attracted National attention. During the season was probably not a Day that accidents failed to be reported and Many of them were very serious. This caused the Council to make a Complete National Survey of All the Canning accidents and that resulted in the discovery As mentioned above that More than four out of every five accidents came from this oven process. As a result of that investigation the following warning is now being issued a do not ask the oven a an inc method. It is dangerous even for experienced canners and under Normal conditions and it proves especially hazardous because of wartime changes in equipment and resultant in exp Peri Encey. Stress is placed upon the statement that not Only the loss of food is involved for that is the least of the results to be considered but the serious personal danger and property damage and the worst of cases were reported by doctors by hospitals insurance companies and other agencies close to the Public. Serious Burns dangerous cuts from flying Glass and most serious of All the frequent loss of eyesight. If this year american women equal the 1943 Canning record it is estimated they will put up More than 4,000 million jars of food. That estimate is made by the department of agriculture and before they Start on this task the Council desires to inform them that the boiling water Bath and open Kettle practice has been found the safest of All methods. Accidents from the pressure Canning method amounted to about fifteen percent of the total last year but the Council does not charge to the system As much As to the can nerds failure to follow directions. It is stated that Are Many poor second Grade Glass containers on the Market and women Are warned to avoid them and to use Standard Glass jars free from flaws or chipped edges. A Jar with even a very Small piece broken from the top or one with a Blister or flaw in the Bottom is much More Likely to burst when heated than a sound Jar. If the pressure method is used the Public is cautioned to have the pressure gauges checked for accuracy and have it done by a reliable commercial company or by state or local authorities. Another warning is not to Paak the jars too solidly but to a leave room of one half Inch or More for the expansion of foods and liquids. Still another caution is to place your jars on some kind of a rack in the Bottom of the Kettle or canner and not to it Ermit one Jar to touch another but leave room Between All of them for water or steam to circulate. No doubt the majority of experienced housewives will sniff at All this so called information and insist that they know How to can their fruits and vegetables without instruction. Probably the majority of them do but even so a whole Jot of them lost an Eye or two last year and scores were sent to hospitals for repairs. Beside will be untold thousands of Young women who Are doing their first Canning this year and maybe the safety Council had them in mind when it was making its request for editorial publicity. At any rate no harm will result from exercising a Little extra care and caution. Of our Indus holding out their tin cups As is thoroughly understood a Large percentage cities and towns Are seriously considering after War trial development. Many communities Are planning to invest Money in the various enterprises medium sums or Large sums depending upon the character of the Industry. Sometimes the plan is for Only temporary investments the Money to be refunded during the earlier years As it is earned. These would really amount to Loans. Other plans Are for outright gifts to induce the location of plants and still others appear to contemplate a partnership arrangement Between the industrialists and the Community or some organization of the Community such As the chamber of Commerce or commercial club. However whatever the proposed arrangement May be it is reported that thousands of municipalities Are looking to the Federal Treasury to hand out the needed Cash. The Community agrees upon a plan and immediately an Effort is made to Contact the congressman who represents the District and enlist his Effort in securing the hand out or a special committee is sent hot foot to Washington to obtain the same results. Eric Johnston president of the United states chamber of Commerce and who by the Way appears to be quite a Man told a House committee on Post War policies a few Days ago that state and City demands for Federal support of their projects would have to be greatly reduced. He further said and in most cases it is strictly True that local governments Are generally in condition to finance their own programs. Every state in the Union and probably ninety nine percent of the cities Are in a better financial condition today than the Federal government and further practically All of them Are constantly improving that condition under the advantages which now prevail while the Federal Treasury is constantly and rapidly going from bad to worse. It seems strange but is apparently True that a great majority of Quot Gimme demands come from men who Are strongly opposed to the governments participation in business men who have been outspoken in their demands for free private Enterprise and yet they must know from past experience that any project financed by the government or even partly financed becomes far from being a a free private Enterprise. And Many of same Fellows Are out and out for reduced Federal spending and for a balanced Federal budget. Not Long ago was a meeting in Chicago of a group calling itself a the american society of planning officials and a delegation from the new York City planning commission emphasized the importance of Federal state financial Aid for Post War City projects. The richest City in the world demanding that the Federal Treasury shall be used As its financial Crutch. However that is the attitude being taken by a vast number of municipalities. The Wall Street journal Calls attention to the fact that new York is far from being the Only City which is holding out its tin cup to Uncle Sam. If cities Lack the civic Pride and the ability to handle their Post War financing and if the government comes through and meets one fourth of the demands that will be made on the Federal Treasury we can simply forget the whole subject of a balanced budget and we can make up our mind to see a growing deficit continued High taxation and peace time Intond sales current comment by f. C. T. Asleep at the switch of More whisky. That report May is an old old custom of be Correct but it is to be taken colouring eggs for easier and it is a with a Grain of Salt until is claimed that much Dye stuffs Are some substantial proof that it is. It wasted in the process through Lack does no to sound like Good politics of information As to proper methods. It is also claimed that at this time is some shortage of dyes and to meet the situation the opa undertook to educate the people by getting out a Little Booklet on the subject for free distribution. It is said the pamphlet was very efficient but the trouble was that after the printing was completed and the booklets wrapped in bundles they were not mailed out of Washington until the Day after easter. O Daniel told Mem not Only is the democratic party split wide open in Texas and Texas has 23 votes in the electoral colleges and thereby creating a headache for the fourth Wermers not Only that but of Daniel senator from that state gave them another Wallop in a recent speech in which he went after the waste and extravagance. He said a your taxpayers Are being smothered under Public debt that will reach $10, 000 per family before this w arnds. And this staggering debt is due to mismanagement of Domestic my f reign affairs by the dynasty n Washington. He made a Public i peal to the voters for a a return to sane constitutional government through the election of men of ability not political parasites. Now 1 ask you was that a Nice Way for Democrat to talk and particularly Only five months before the National election the answer of the new dealers would be a a not. Rotten if True it is reported that the administration is going to Send about 25,-000,000 Gallons of gasoline to Cuba in Exchange for alcohol and the reason Given for this Deal is to permit american distillers to devote their efforts to the production for it would be a Rotten trick to play on our rationed Auto Drivers and they might show their resentment at the polls and As this administration is devoting More time and thought to politics than any other subject it is to be doubted that such a Boner is to be pulled. That Soldier vote in today a Exchange newspapers Are a half dozen or More editorials on the Soldier vote and most of them discuss the percentage that will support Roosevelt and the extent of the opposition. A report issued in late May from the italian front apparently indicates that no estimate whatever can be forecast on that vote and for the reason that the servicemen Are to a great extent indifferent to the coming election. According to that report in one Encampment of about 14 0 american soldiers in Italy has not been a single application for the Blank which must he filled out to permit the service Man to vote and this is not because the men have not been Given notice for the printed notices have been posted for More than a month but simply because they Are not interested. Only eight percent on another foreign front location not made definite a Survey was made of an Encampment of american service men again indefinite As to number and it is reported that the investigation showed that a about 30 percent of the men interviewed expressed approval of the Effort to give them an Opportunity to vote a they thought it was their rights. However less than eight percent announced definitely that they would vote about an equal number were a a considering it but a by far the largest number indicated that they would probably not bother about it. With that kind of a situation it is impossible to make any definite prediction of the effect the Soldier vote will have in the november election just vote bait a lot of charges and counter charges in Congress in conventions and in the press about Roosevelt a foreign policy. It is charged that he is becoming a nationalist. A group of socialists Are condemning him for Drifting away from his earlier policies. He is abandoning his pledge to carry Freedom to Europe. He has not abandoned that pledge. He is forgetting the Labouring Man. He is not forgetting the Labouring Man and a lot More along the same line and it is All Bosh. He is strictly adhering to his one outstanding policy that of bidding for votes. Everything he says and does from now until election Day will be regulated by its probable vote getting possibilities. Edson a Washington column Peter Edson be a staff correspondent \ wit in a government official discovers and admits that its difficult for Small business men to keep up with government regulations boy that a news. Quincy Adams recently n. Nied chief of the division of Small business in the department of Commerce after a number of years with Dun and Bradstreet has been out visiting representative Small business establishments retailers wholesalers manufacturers and has returned to Wahington with first hand observations on some of the things that keep Small business from ticking. Nearly All the Lituco follows now left in business Are making Money. Or. Adams believes but their headaches still come lion having to make out government forms unfamiliarity with old government orders inability to keep up with new ones Lack of information about where to go to get information where to go to make complaints How to file appeals difficulty in dealing w Ith the dodos without business experience who in the general manpower shortage have of necessity been brought into government to enforce the Maze of. Wartime regulations. As sidelights on complexities Are the recent announcement that opa is now trying to boil Down its 21, volumes of orders into five and a Check up on the number of War Agency Field offices set up to explain the War program and try to lend a helping hand to the Small business Man. There Are 106 smaller War plants corporation offices 110 War production Board offices 102 District and regional office of Price administration offices not counting the 5500 ration boards12 regional War labor boards 150 wage and hour Law and wage stabilization offices 12 regional 48 state and 177 area War manpower commission offices plus 1500 u. S. Employment service offices and 26 department of Commerce regional offices which Are supposed to be Able to answer All the questions about All the others. The Mere personnel problem of getting Good men for All 500 or More principal and 7000 local offices Means qualifications go Down even when enthusiasm and intentions Are the Best. In the demand for reports applications and appeals for agencies Quincy Adams finds that local firms of accountants Are doing a land office business. Instead of bothering with the formidable forms himself the Small businessman is inclined to turn the Job Over to the accountants for a fee of course. Sometimes this results in inaccurate information furnished to the f government. Where a specific answer is difficult the accountants out of their knowledge and experience of business conditions in the area will till in an approximate answer which satisfies the requirements of the of i in and keeps the government Agency Happy evea Ifim i pfc Itu fade.

The real life adventures of a society girl who goes to work in a War Plant. A Bench i _ a Ench has reorganized. There is a new Boss and four new girls have been taken in and i am one of the four. It is a Little like our earlier lessons at Simpsons so a sort of handicraft class. At Simpsons everyone was very solemn and fearfully painstaking about it Here in what Simpsons referred to in reverent tones As a actual shop practice a is a pleasant Happy go Lucky attitude. At Simpsons our first lesson was to learn the proper names for new tools our finishing hammers our mallets our six Inch Scales not Here at Kerry Kraft practically any tool is in the language of the men a that ,�?� and in the language of the girls a a say Annie lend me your Jigger a you have to Stop and see what your companion is doing figure out what tool she May want then scrabble through your Toolbox and produce it. At Simpsons borrowing was considered one of the major sins Here at Kerry Kraft we could not live without it. Alas is a Good # Deal of unauthorized borrowing too a vicious Circle for if someone has lifted your Hammer you lift someone a else a. My gun sets for riveting my beautifully polished and Satin smooth bucking bar which i had nicknamed my a Marvel magi my Little Case of drills Are put away. In Bench we need Only hammers mallets files and the More punctilious of us our Scales. Bench is a Large department of the Plant for in Bench Are made All the Small pieces which sub Assembly and final put together. But it is split up into Small divisions which Are scattered through the building. In ours Bench s-2, we make nose ribs for elevator tabs a Tab being part of an elevator and an elevator being the hinged on rear part of the planets Tail which lifts or Lowers to make the plane head up or Down. After considerable questioning i Learned that our pieces belong to a Navy Pursuit for which Kerry Kraft does sub contracting. A taking our nose ribs is not very different from other hand Metal work you file and Bend and Hammer and polish off the Edge with an Emery cloth. When you be done a Lackful you take them across the aisle to inspection and when inspection has decided they have no cracks and Are More or less the right size a one thing i like about you for a Friend is you done task no inspection puts its stamp on them and hallows to you to take them away. Then Down the aisle past other sections of Bench and past the paint shop we leave them with Gus of the heat treat department. Eunice and i lunch companions now for two months Are accepted As a girl a say who a your Good looking girl Friend Quot one of the a a Fellers asked me the other Day. A a How a about a Little introducing a it do him much Good for Eunice is already involved in a love affair. I done to know the particulars but i gather that the path of love is not too smooth. Quite often our lunch period is spent in silence with Eunice off in a dream coming Back to Earth with a Little Start and a rather sheepish smile. A a done to take it As nothing personal if i done to Tell you All what son my mind a she said one Day. There appears to be some reason Why the identity of the lad on whom her affections Are entered must be kept secret. Can Eunice be doing a Little poaching i wonder but i do not ask and this is appreciated. A one thing i like about you for a Friend is you done task no questions a Eunice has told me More than once. Neither does she. I doubt if any other two lady workers in Kerry Kraft know As Little about each other a pasts. A Ance catching some betraying remark i had made Eunice turned to me with a sudden suspicion in her eyes. Quot say Annie How much schooling did you have a when i said lightly that believe it or not i had got through fourth Grade Gert took it up. A serious now How Many years a i tried to escape. A it seems like hundreds looking Back. That annoyed Eunice. A a done to go getting smart again. What a wrong with telling me a a Well i finished High i must have sounded boastful. A a what a so wonderful about that a Gert demanded. A a jeez you did too did no to you Eunice a a yes i graduated. Back in �?T37.�?� i thought we would veer off into reminiscence but Eunice was still not free of suspicion and she sat looking at me appraising by. Finally a you did no to never go to no College did you a was a sort of uncertainty in her voice a Hope for reassurance. A me a i did no to have to say any More. Gert settled it.
