ALASKA’S SALMON
INDUSTRY MOVES INTO
THE BIG FIGHT
Packers, with higher operating and selling costs, double adver
tising in States to maintain Canned Salmon sales
and protect Territory*s prosperity
QUESTION: What is behind the slowing down in packers' sales of Canned
Salmon since last summer?
ANSWER: A year ago, wholesalers in the States foresaw higher prices on Alaska’s
Canned Salmon and other food products, due to higher wages and pro
duction cosrs. They bought heavily for future needs. The 1937 pack
came into a market already well supplied with Canned Salmon. Result:
the Industry has not been able to sell the normal volume from this last
summer’s pack.
QUESTION: What does this mean to the Salmon Industry and to Alaska?
ANSWER: Unless sales are greatly increased, the Industry faces the possibility
of entering a new pack season with heavy supplies on hand, and a con
sequently depressed market. Packers may have difficulty in moving their
output at reasonable prices . . . and the Industry’s capacity to share in
supporting the Territory may be restricted.
QUESTION: What are the salmon packers doing about it?
ANSWER: They have doubled their war chest for the battle to increase the use
of Canned Salmon among U. S. families. The Industry's national adver
tising. which has been boosting sales steadily for two years, is being
dud.11./ in 19.' 8. It will be the largest campaign in the Industry’s history.
With over 143,000,000 salmon selling messages in Sunday newspaper
supplements and leading magazines, plus additional daily newspaper,
outdoor and radio advertising.
Thus a far greater number of American housewives than ever before
reached by salmon advertising will be sold on serving Canned Salmon
more often. For only by stepping up Canned Salmon consumption in
this wav can the log jam of unsold stocks be broken—and the way be
paved for further protecting the future of the Salmon Industry and its
friends here in Alaska.

Situation Summed
Up After Seven
Months War
SHANGHAI, F b.7, UP)—Here’s
the Chinese and Japanese war
picture after seven months hos
tilities, summoned up by the As
sociated Press Special correspon
dent at the war front:
Chinese and Japanese forces
are locked along the Hwai River
north of Nanking in a battle whi
ch may decide the fate of vast
areas of China’s richest territory
and the control of her major rail
way lines, since the war began
on July 7, 1937.
Japanese forces from the North
swept southward along the Tient
sin-Pukow Railway approximate
ly three hundred and fifty miles,
then spread out from the sides
of the railway parallel with the
Peiping Hankow line.
The Japanese now dominate all
or most of Shantung, Shansi and
Hopeh Provinces, and most of
Peiping. They have captured the
key cities of Chahar and Suiyuan
Provinces.
Japanese forces marching north
west from Shanghai, have cover
ed approximately 320 miles, leav
ing 182 to 200 miles between nor
thern. and Shanghai armies as a
battle-ground along the Lunghai
Railway, China’s main East-West
transportation line.
The Japanese invaders also gain
ed control of the capital of Nan
king and her greatest city, Shan
ghai; also the important cities of
Peiping, Tientsin, Tsingtao, Hang
chow, and hold the lower Yang
tze Valley, most of Yellow River,
and the Grand Canal of China.
Most observers aTe agreed that
the dead and wounded total more
than one million, and that war
damage runs into untold millions.
Colder Weather

weather minimized the danger to
the Soviet Polar Party on the
Arctic ice cap. The breakup of
