Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 6, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATIJKDAT, .Tl'I.Y B. 191S THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY IffiRALD Canning With a Conscience \-Homo Drying and Canning of Vegetablea. StorlHiIng fruit and taking trays of dried vegetables out of the oven. 2-Typical display of canned fruit and vogetabler. No woinan need lack war work while thete ve" fruit and vegetablea Btil! dn hand. No woman need �lt down and think Kho has done her duty It she does nol know lliat her nantry shelves are well llUod thCed' days. In tlio-oUlen days women vied with c.uh. other in tho ciuantlty and qual-Itx ot fruit tiVey "put up." It was a ' matter of housewi ely pride. Again wc are-xiomlng back to the same stan : darua when thrift and domestic ac-compIiBhments count ifor much. Why can when stigar 18 scarce? U �1 l.s ;i question iri''tlre mouths of 'hurf-drciifl of women. The Food. Board anawpra tho auos-tlon. Sugar is not: going to be scarce . for canning, because canning Is a conservation measure Fats are among . the most vltar neefls o( Europe. But-. tcr is tho most important of fats. Canada has � intlnlto  possibilities where i licr butter.and cheese Industries are concerned, but she Is not making the best URO of them. She Is only supplying 1% per cent of the Allies' butter reniiirementa. The more Jam made and the more fruit and vegotablcfl canned by the Canadian housewives this year, the more butter there will bo to export. l^ut this Is not to say that sugar Is to be naed carte blanche. Restrictions have been placed ou the confectionery bua^neas in order that there may bo more sugar for preeerves. Regulations Jiave been passed limiting the Hso ot sugar for exactly the samo reason. But care In the use of sugar Is atiU necessary. Wlille making all, the jam they can, Canadian housewlvee should use the minimum of sugar. An old fashioned idea prevails that to make good Jam a pound of sugar la necessary ito a pound ot fruit. It Isn't! Usually three-quarters of a pound of sugar Is suftloient; with eome fruits one-half pound te enough. The early fruits are coming on tho market now, and It Is high lime tor the piquant odour qE canning opera-Kbns to bo tloatln^'bn the breeze from hundreds ot homes. Team-work pays In this as In most other klndi of work.'To get the beat reeults, women should pool their equipment, their ideas, thpir energiea. In other words- havo community canning centres! Tills Is nq novelty. It was tried out in different parts of Canada last year and It worked well. For Instance, one little Ontario town put lis name on tho map through the wonderful work done by lU canning centre. In addlttlon to 700 jars ot canned fruit, vegetables and pickles donated to the Convalescent Home, It sent overseas th� following: 1,064 quarts jellied chicken, SOO quarts chicken soup, 850 quarts tonmto Bonp, 360 quarts peacli jam, 2fi0 quarts pickles.

PAGE5I1NE FLAG I H have taken the matter up this year, and by applying to them full inforraa--tlon can be secured regarding equipment, the expense Involved and so forth. Concrete help will be given wherever it Is needed. The Hed Cross working In close conjunction with the Ontario government is willing to provide canning centres with glass Jars or tins and labels and ehlpping cases where the preserves are going to be shipped to Canadian military hospi-'tals. There is aomethiug about canning on a communal scale that should appeal ^to every woman. The large sunny room with light and air, the companionship, the absence of confusion and dirt attendant on home canning where the equipment is Inadequate and -well, that feeling that ^'everybody.'fl doing it" help to lighten the labor' and make it seem worth while. 'i' Why "waa it that we were asked to throw ourselves heart and Soul earlier In tho season In the cultivation ot war gardens'? Why Is It that we are asked to slow down on our sugar coneumplion? Chiefly that during the winter months which are ahead of us we may have an ubundanco ot homemade substlt"utes for the things that are needed overseas. Plenty of .1am used in Canada means more butter tor the Allies. -Plenty ot dried and canned fruit and vegetables means more meat released for export. In was In tha year 1885 that canning became a commerlal Induetry. AwaJ^ back In 1860 the mystery . that had surrounded the art disappeared, and by 1890 It had a\umover Jn the United States of over |45,000,000. In the year^l916 the turnover had Increased to thirteen times that sum, and the canning Industry Is now established as on� ot the most Important In the life ot the nation, The same Is true ot C|n'ada; Aside from canning and jam-making there are other processes by which our Imtt and veBt�b!es may bo saved, and chief among these is the dehy-drmtlng or drying process. War con-dltlbns have brought the old art ot dryine into promlneBca and. nt^em equipment has stimulated It and made It' a profttable and safe method of saving toed. The storing and. pickling of vegetables are further meas-jjres of conservation.

Yet the gasoline consumption is low. Even the low-grade gasoline of to-day. A larger radiator and water system keeps the Gray-Dort motor "on the job" all the time. The carburetor is of improved type. The crankshaft is heavy and balanced. The fan i8 bigger and better. ' The Gr^y-Dort motor is the final accomplishment in 4-cylindcr construction-the ultimate in flexibility, noiselessness, accessibility and ample power. As for appearance-we ask you to see the car. Sec the higher radiator, the double-curve fendersj the khaki-lined top. the wider wind-shield, the Gray-Dort green finish, the Trifocal reflectors. The new Gray-Dort embodies aU these improvements with all the good-features that won instant success for former models. The 4-cylinder motor is a triumph of smooth, economical speed and power. The chassis i� sturdy-and quiet. The springs arc long, v The upholstery is deep. The equipment is absolutely complete from electric starting and lighting to the tools. New lines of beauty have been given this model. .The fivc-passcnger touring car is 31195; the thrce-pas-senger fleur-dc-lys roadster is SIOSO; tic Gray-Dort special, beautifully finished and with extra details of equip-'ment, is 2125 above the list.
