According to C. P. Sacks, vice
president of the Chapin-Sacks Ice

the usual summer demand of the
people, with some conservation.
"Washington depends mainly on
manufactured ice. and of that there
is by no means a scarcity. It is
true that thero is not much natural
ice, h*?re or elsewhere, because of
the mild winter, but a lack of
natural ice should not affect Wash
