YOU CAN CAN MORE FOODS
What a difference a long row of
canned foods In your fruit closet
makes in your state of mind.
It answers the question, "What am
I going to have for dinner tonight
and how am I going to get It?" It
also does away with the terrors of
the unexpected guest. Your prob
lem is solved, the row of canned
foods has simplified life for you.
Last summer the entire country
was smitten with the healthy con
taion of canning. Women who had
always delicately avoided even
speaking of what went on In their
kitchens, rolled up their sleeves and
spent hours studying and putting In
to effect the "cold pack" method, oth'
er women who generally "only pre
served," last summer canned vege
tables, meats, soups and, some of
them, even flsh.
Now that we have all this canned
stuff on hand, don't hoard, use It!

CONSERVATION IN OUR HOTELS
A few days ago the representative
of the Food Administration met the
proprietor of one of the family hotels
which has the reputation of setting
the best table of any on Kauai. Dur
1 . 1
ing the conversation ho remarked
that when wheatless and meatless
days were put Into effect he thought
it a great hardship and like many
others, eritisized Administrator Child
und the Food Admln'stration, but
since he had been devoting a little
time and thought to preparing dish
es not containing wheat or meat he
is giving his guests better variety
and more wholesome meals at a less
cost than formerly and the guests
were fully satisfied.
"If anyone tells you that wheat
loss and meatless days are a hard
ship, you tell them to go and climb
a tree. They do not know what they
are talking about," was the way he
put It. "
What one person can do, others
can do by trying.

DO NOT WASTE ICE
Thousands of tons of ice are wast
ed in hotels, restaurants and dining
cars every year.
Should this waste continue, it Is
probable that millions of people will
have to do without ice during a por
tion of the coming hot season.
A large proportion of the ice used
in the United States is artificial. To
manufacture such ice, ammonia is
used in large quantities.
Ammonia is not going to be avail
able to any great extent for ice mak
ing. It is going to be used in making
munitions. One pound of ammonia
will make twenty hand grenades.
