We notice that many communities in
dilerent sections of the state are or
ganizing canneries so as to be prepared
to take care of and preserve much of
the surplus foodstuff which is going to
be made this year. This is a good idea
. and we suggest that there should be a
cannery established at or near Pickena,
where people who raise large amounts
of perishable foodstuff may get it put
3 up In shape so that it will ileep. There
would be no good in raising a lot of
stuff to oat and then allow it to go to
' We call this to the attention of our
people and hope someone will take steps
to put a cannery in operation here.

WONDER how Jim Ed Kerr of the
