FRUIT CELLARS vs.

I AST year, American housewives canned a billion
and a half more jars of fruit and vegetables than
ever before nearly half of the nation’s entire food
pack. This made it possible for our Armed Forces,
our Allies, and those families having no canning facil
ities, to get their fair share of the billions of cans of
fruits and vegetables commercially processed during
the past year.
busy housewives deserve all credit, don’t
overlook the automatic gas ranges and hot water
heaters all over America that gave quick, efficient
service at the mere touch of a finger.
The fast, eager service of reliable gas appli
ances made the canning job easier, thus more
food could be preserved.

Swearing vengeance for Bataan, American forces have launched
sweeping drives in the Southwest Pacific. General MacArthur has
scored spectacular successes in island invasions, while the Pacific
fleet has executed daring assaults on main Jap bases. Admiral
Nimitz has declared his intention to establish Chinese coastal bases
from which long-range bombers can raid Tokyo. Navy planes like
the Dauntless dive-bombers above, have knocked out 4,316 Jap
