Kennewick Auto to
Close Salesroom
Inability to get cars
only reason
The war has hit one business
institution in Kennewick. Alter
today, the Kennewick Auto Co. is no
more—at least until it's possible to
secure new cars again (for the civil
ian population.
Announcement 18 made this week
of the withdrawal of the company’s
offices in Kennewlck. Inability to se
cure cars is the reason for closing
the Kennewick off-ice and sales
room. The repair shop, however,
will continue to operate, the Graves,
father and son, will continue the
shop under their own management.
“We hate to close the Kennewick
branch,” Ernest Huber, local man
ager said. “We have done a nice bus
iness in Kennewick, like the people
and the town, but we can’t get cars,
so there’s no point in keeping open
until we can get them again.”

Big Increase of
Vegetable Pack
Expected in 1942
USDA sets supporting
prices to growers; on
peas and tomatoes.
Canned vegetables will play an
important part in the arsenal of
food being produced by American
farmers in 1942, says Fred Wilson,
chairman of the Benton County U.
s. D. A. Defense Board. Needs of the
armed forces, civilian population and
aid to other democracies will require
the greatest canned vegetable pro
duotion in history.
‘ Price supporting measures have
;been announced for tomatoes and
peas for canning, which will be pur
chased through the Agricultural
Marketing Service of the U. S. De
.partment of. Agriculture. Benton
County fanners should note care
fully in making contracts with can-f
hers that to insure higher prices be- 3
ing passed on to rfarmers, purchases‘
will be made only from canneries‘
which heme been certified by the
State U. S. D. A. Defense Board as
having agreed by contract to pay
producers the following minimum
prices. As near as the local U. 8. D.
A. Defense Board can ascertain the.
average 1940 price for tomatoes to
canners in Benton county was about
$12.00 per ton. The 1940 price for
canning peas was about $45.00 per
Tomatoes—Not less than $5 per
ton more than the average 1940
price paid to growers in the state or
Peas—Not loss than $17.50 .per ton
more than the average 1940 price
paid to mowers in the state or area.
Large Quantities of canned snap
beans and corn will -be required in
1942, but no price guarantees have
been applied and no direct govern
ment purchases of thwe commodi
ties are contemplated. Fred Wilson
pointed out. 1
. The nation’s needs for the next
year will require 40 million cases of ;
canned tomatoes, 38 million cases of
canned tpees, 112% million cases of
canned snap beans and 24 million
cases od' canned corn. 'niis repre
sents an incmease above the 1941
pack of 25 percent for tomatoes and
33 percent for peas. The goal for
snap beans «13 about hte same as the
1941 pack, while the com (figure rep
resents a decrease of about 2 million
cases «below that packed in 1941.

To Register Horses and
Mules of Military Age
Every horse and mule owner in
Benton county is requested by the
war department to forward before
January mo. 19¢ to County Agent
Skuse at Kennewiek the following
mformmon concerning each horse
or mule he owns between the agesl
of three and ten:
ABO. sex. color. whether riding or
draft type. broken or unbroken. and
whether or not they are necessary
for the owner's use.
This is not a draft or animal re
sources and it seems unlikely that
Ithis will even be necessary. When
horses and mules are needed they
will be purchased. 1
Prompt registration of animals of
a, useful military age is simply a
most desirable step in our defense
preparations and is a voluntary and
abviously a patriotic obligation.
