| Canning Center Drags at Start,
But Director Sees'Madhouse'
1 Ullll l ' V
Mrs. S. H. De Vault, 3350 Seventeenth street N.W., one of the
flrst-day patrons of the District Community Canning Center,
receives some pointers on canning beets from George H. Christy,
center superintendent. —Star Staff Photo.
George H. Christy, superintendent
of the District Community Canning
Center, today was hopeful of an
upsurge in business, despite a poor
showing at yesterday's opening of
the center at 1640 Wisconsin avenue
N.W.
The fact only a relatively small
number of persons appeared yester
day does not mean that Washington
housewives have lost their wartime
fervor for canning.
The 53 - year - old Greek - born
superintendent of the center had a
valid explanation for the slow start.
It appears the center opened two
weeks later than has been the
custom in the past four years, be
cause of appropriation difficulties.
Meanwhile, the first spring bean
- -.- .
crop has been harvested—but too
late to be canned at the center.
Berries, But Few Beans.
“But, just you wait,” Mr. Christy
declared. "This is a madhouse when
the tomato crop arrives. And
peaches come in at the same time.
Why, we have women sitting on the
steps waiting their turn.”
A woman arrived with some pro
duce. “I have lots of berries, but
very few beans,” she informed Mr.
Christy.
"That’s all right, dearie, you know
what to do,” he replied.
Mr. Christy commented to a re
porter: "She was booked for beans,
but we can take care of her berries.”
He explained she was an experi
enced hand at using the center’s
facilities.
Another young matron came up
and asked Mr. Christy how many
beans she should pack in each can.
“An eighth of an inch below the
top, darling, and don’t forget three
quarters of a teaspoon of salt for
each can.”
Homelike Atmosphere.
Mr. Christy’s endearing appela
tions are all part of the informal,
homelike atmosphere of the cen
ter. .Mrs. Christy is a patron of the

center, while their 18-year-old son
Leo, works in the big steamy proc
essing room where the cans are
sealed and cooked.
Mr. Christy calls the persons using
the center his "commuters.” The
lone male “commuter” yesterday
was Clarence Wilson, a steam en
gineer of 5445 Potomac avenue N.W.
He was busy stuffing homegrown
beans in cans. Nearby were pans of
green apples ready to be made into
applesauce.
Mr. Christy said men are regu
lar "commuters,” adding: “We have
men who come in to do canning
while their wives go off to the
beach.”
Harry M. Gardner, who super
vises the District’s food conserva
tion programs, came up at this
point and recalled the three FBI
men who spent one evening a week
at the center during the war. They
kept their operations secret from
their wives, in true FBI fashion.
Then on the last evening, they
brought their wives to the center
for an inspection. They were taken
to a storeroom and there several
hundred cans of fruit were pre
sented to surprised wives.
Mr. Christy’s "commuters” in
clude cabinet wives and Vives of
members of the diplomatic corps.
He recalled that Mrs. Chester W.

Nimitz, wife of the Chief of Naval
Operations, once commented It was
the cleanest spot she had ever seen.
The center will remain open until
November, when the last of the 1947
crops are in. The hours Monday
through Wednesday are 8 am. to
4:30 p.m., while on Thursday and
Friday, they are 3 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
The center is closed weekends.

I^OMEHOW the sky seems bluer and the

. this Buick are enjoying the day together.
Somehow the sudden summer shower
seems more of a lark, less of a bother,
when it’s pattering on the snug shelter
this tidy number throws up automatically
at your touch on a control.
Somehow autumn air is more winey,
swirling winter snows more fun when
your choice is a Buick — and a Convert
er ible as tight and all-weather-ready as
f| this one.
Maybe it’s because your style sense tells
you these sleek lines and this, rich treat
|! ment are going to stay the fairest of the
H automotive fair.
Maybe it’s because you find, in the big
Fireball straight-eight under your treadle
foot — an ever-eager, ever-lively
companion-in-adventure that acknowl
edges no peer for life and lift and velvet
smoothness.
It could be the rare and pleasurable
steadiness given an open car by good,
solid Buick construction. It could be,
simply, that here at last you find size and
ability and smartness and finish to match
your dreams of a perfect travel mate.
