MASSACHUSETTS CHOCOLATE COMPANY NOW IN THIRD
PLACE AMONG MANUFACTURERS
ON VOLSTEAD ACT
Believes There Is Some Dissatis
faction Over Its Interpreta
tion of Eighteenth Amend
ment, But Says It Should Be
Obeyed While It Is Law
At one of the Boston piers this week Is the steamship Lako Friiniet which
grows lighter ns bag after bag of the thirty-thousand that comprised her cargo
Is unloaded from tho hold. Soon sho will steam away to sunny Portugal for
The bags rontaln cocoa beans which
were taken on at Lisbon, Portugal, and
consigned to tho Massachusetts Choco
late company, and Its subsidiary, the
Vermont Milk Chocolato company, to be
mode Into Wan-Eta cocoa and chocolate.
The cargo Is valuod nt about throe
quarters of a million dollars qultn a siz
able sum for raw material. Yos, but
that Is only ono shipment The steam
ship Goa preceded tho Lako Frumet and
unloadod 30,000 bogs of cocoa boan for
tho Bamo company recently, at a similar
valuation of $750,000.
This gives somo Idea uf the tremendous
growth of the chocolate and cocoa busi
ness Industry of the United States, and
particularly of tho growth of tho Mass
achusetts Chocolate company, which now
ranks third amongst all the chocolate
manufacturers of tho United States.
HISTORY OF THE INDUSTRY
Chocolate and cocoa have come Into
their o.vn In America. Tho growth of the
Industry has beenand will continue to
be on an enormous scale. Twenty-six
yoara ago, or In 1900, there was a total
of 36,000,000 pounds of chocolato and cocoa
consumed by the American people.
Evidently they found this very pleas
ing, for 10 years later wo find thorn buy
ing MO.ooo.WJ pounds a yoar. Last year
tho consumption of chocolate and cocoa
reached tho enormous total of 286,000,000
pounds or over two pounds to every man,
woman and child In tho United States.
"Tho Increase In tho consumption of
chocolate and cocoa," said John Walker,
managing director of tho Massachusetts
Chocolate company, and ono of tho best
Informed men on this Industry In the
United States, "is due to three things:
"First There has been a steady Im
provement In the quality of the raw prod
uct by tho planters In the growing coun
tries. "Second Experience and skill combined
with research has so developed the qual
ity of chocolato and cocoa manufactur
ed In this country that It Is an equal
If not superior to any made in the world.
"The World war probably had more
to do with the bringing home to the peo
ple tho valuo of chocolate and cocoa as
a food than could havo been done with
$100,000,000 worth of advertising. It es
tablished cocoa and sweetened chocolate
at tho head of all other foods as an emer
gency ration, and was adopted as such
by all the armies and navies In tho
"Do you not credit prohibition with In-
creuso In the use of chocolate?" Mr.
Walker was asked.
'Yob, Indeed," he said. "It would place
that as the third reason for the Increase
In the business, and I believe that pro
hibition will continue to old all high
grade chocolate and cocoa, so that we can
expect the same Increase for tho next
50 years as we have during the past 50.
"Fifty years ago there was only one
manufacturer of chocolate In tho United
States of any elzc. and even abroad the
use of chocolate and cocoa was oxtrcmely
"To-day It is outstripping all other bev
erages. I know of no other beverage
which combines tho qualities of nourish
ment and helpful food digestion as does
cocoa and In this all dietitians agree-
so that It is only natural to expect great
Increases In tho Industry."
BOSTON PLAYS BIO PART IN
Tho history of the Massachusetts Choc
olate company, of which Mr. Walker Is
head, gives an Interesting Insight Into
tho Improvements of Its Industry and also
the largo part that Boston plays in sup
plying tho refit of tho United States with
this much-wanted product.
Tho Massachusetts Chocolate company
and Its subsidiary the Vermont Milk
Chocolato company during the year 1913
Just eight years from the tlmo they start
ed manufacturing marketed moro than
71,000,000 pounds of chocolate.
This Is better than 25 per cent, of tho
total consumption In the United States.
During the war, especially In the yoara
1918 and 1919, American manufacturers ex
ported very large quantities of choco
late and cocoa to foreign countries, es
timated at moro than 60 per cent, of
tho total amount manufactured In this
country, but as Mr. Wulkor pointed out
tho drop In exchange, had reduced the
export on these products to a vanishing
point. Notwithstanding this the chocolato
nnd cocoa output by the Massachusetts
Chocolate company for tho first quarter
of 1920 would equal If not exceed tho
flmt quarter of 1919.
The Massachusetts Chocolato company
did Its share In supplying the boys at the
front with chocolato to bo used as an
emergency ration, and also for drinking
purposes and for this they received ci
tatlon from the government for tho nfll
clent way In which they handled tho
business, and also for the fine quality
of their product.
During tho year 1919 the Massachusetts
Chocolate company, and Its subsidiary
tho Vermont Milk Chocolato company-
which manufactures nothing but Wan
Eta products, together consumed a total
of 41,000,000 pounds of cocoa beans.
The value of Its sales In 1911 wan $211,
000, while last year the sales totaled tho
splendid sum of $19,000,000.
The Massachusetts Chocolate company
was Incorporated In 1910 under the laws
of Massachusetts to manufacture choc
olate, cocoa and cocoa butter for manu
facturlng purposes, as well as to put out
a full lino of eating and drinking choc
Particular attention has been given to
tho development of highest grado of milk
and nut chocolate. To distinguish their
chocolato from others they adopted an
Indian girl In a circle with the word
"Wan-Eta" as a trademark.
From the first offering to tho trade.
which was mado late In 1911. their prod
ucts have received very favorable at
tention, nnd from that tlmo on tho growth
of Wan-Eta chocolate and cocoa has been
continuous. The hlgheft quality of the
product and tho demand of the Amerl
can public for moro and more chocolate
has made them successfully meet com

Frederick H. Babbitt, candidate for the
republican nomination for governor. Is
spending a few days at tho Hotel Ver
mont. AVhcn Interviewed by a Free
Press man yesterday regarding the
Volstead act, Mr. Babbitt said:
Thcro Is unquestionably among our
peoplo a feeling of dissatisfaction over
the unnecessarily drastic wording of the
Volstead act and Its all too harsh Inter
pretation of tho eighteenth amendment
to the Federal Constitution. Tho Inde
pendent spirit of Ethan Allen, evor
present among our grcon hills, Is a vital
force In the rugged character of our
citizenship and our people bellovft that
changes In the constitution should only
bo made by popular will. Future Legisla
tures will glvo heed to this demand. Ver
monters realize, notwithstanding tho
iigltatlon now going on In ono or two
of our State papers, that tho only way
the 'Volstead' act can bo 'humanized' Is
by congressional action, and not through
nny action by tho governor or tne
Legislature, but popular sentiment, seek
ing an opportunity to express Itself re
garding tho Volstead act, is Insistent
that the several candidates for governor
make their position on this matter
'The people of Vermont have alwaya
deserved and maintained the reputation
of law-abiding citizens, steadfast and In
dependent, confident of their own
capacity to manage their own business
and settle their domestic concerns with
out outside dictation upon the principles
ot law and order, recognizing tho duty
of obedience to State legislation, repre
senting tho popular will and consent of
Vermont. Tho purpose of our laws has
beon tho promotion and security of tho
physical. Intellectual and moral welfare
of tho community, and this purpose has
been successfully accomplished by our
statutes, enacted by tho General As
sembly of our .State. Wo belong to the
Union, and tho Federal Constitution Is
tho supreme law, and Its precepts must
bo obeyed. Laws framed under It must
bo enforced. Experience, howover. Justi
fies tho conviction that If congressional
acts, llko tho Volstead act, become
offensive to tho majority and are un
necessarily harsh, that fact will be dem
onstrated by their Impartial and ln
dlscrlmlnatlng enforcement, and when so
demonstrated, all euch enactments will
bo amended or repealed because not sus
tained by the consent of the governed, I
and therefore inconsistent with and
subverslvo of republican and democratic
Institutions. It will bo my constant effort I
to execute tho office of governor. If chosen
to that position, so as to maintain law
and order, and encourago and foster
temperance. Industry and Independence
among our people."
