Voters Become Lawmakers in
November General Election
In addition to the election of a
president and vice president, or
electors with authority to select
incurabents for these highest of.
flees in the land, a full state, con
gressional, legislative and county
ticket with such minor offices as
justices of the peace, voters at the
November election will be called
upon to decide several very im
portant measures which will ap.
pear at the tap of their ballots.
fom Mill Tax Limit and
Gasoline Tax as Amendments
There will be two constitutional
amendents on the ballot, one which
if adopted will prevent use 0 1
funds collected as gasoline taxes
for any other than highway con
struction and maintenance and the
other would make the 40-min lim
it on real estate taxes a part of
the state constitution.
This limitation on real estate
I taxes has been adopted by the vot.
ers as an initiative at each elec
tion since 1932, and the proposal
is now to make the law a part of
the state constitution which will
eliminate the necessity of submit-

ting it to the voters each two years
as in the past. It is being spon
sored. by the same committee
which submitted it in the other
form for the past 12 years and
seems to meet with general sup
port as in former campaigns.
Public Ownership of
Power Plants an Inn.
A law, passed by the 1943 ses
sion of the state legislature which
would permit the purchase of
statewide electricity distribution
systems, will be on the ballot un
der Referendum No. 25. This
plan would permit public utility
districts to combine and make the
purchases, then operate or resell
the plants to the individual dis
tricts which seem to be confined
to county boundaries, or parts of
counties for their distributionOx (1
counties for their operations.
Power companies and others are
opposing the suggested law, pub
lic utility district officials and
others are working for its passage.
Enlarged Socielfiecurlty Plan
And Old Age Pensions
As recently mentioned in this‘
space, Initiative No. 157 will be
on the ballot as a plan for in-‘
creasing payments for social se-L‘
curity benefits. The proposed law
would ~include more persons and
liberalize the amount of payments.
A proposal to submit“ Intitiative
158 which is a pension plan of S6O
per month for all citizens over 60
years of age is yet in doubt as‘
names are now being checked by
Secretary of State Belle Reeves.

Can Tomatoes this Summer to:
7 Winter Vitamin C
‘ Civilians can count on buying
only five-eights as much com
mercially canned tomatoes and
tomato juice this coming winter
as they did last year. That’s a
word to the wise for homemakers
who have tomatoes ripening in:
their Victory gardens. Home-can
ning some of these garden toma
toes during the next few weeks is
onewaytomakesureofvitamin
C for meals later.
Tomatoes should be canned by
the boiling water bath method.
Any big, clean vessel—washboiler,
metal pail, lard can—will do for
a boiling water bath, provided it
has a good lid and is deep enough.
IThe canner must hold a rack and
‘the jars, and have' three t four
>inches to spare above jar tto‘ps so
.water can roll and bubble. For
\homemakers who are canning sur
‘plus tomatoes from a small victory
garden, a kettle holding two or
three jars may be big enough,
Keep kettle, rack and lid handy‘
all summer long, and can the‘
extra tomatoes as they come fresh}
from the vines. '
Tomato canning routine is as
follows: ,-.y _
’ Look over every tomatb and use
only' the ripe, firm and perfect‘
(softer, but still good tomatoes are.
all right for juice.) Get ready;
only enough tomatoes for one}
canner' load at a time. Handle:
them gently so they will not
bruise, wash in several waters.
For easy peeling, put tomatoes
in a wire basket or thin cloth,
dip‘ into boiling‘ water a minute,
then plunge into cold. Cut out‘
stem end and peel. Quarter toma-;
toes and heat in their own juice,‘
stirring frequently to prevent
sticking and burning. While toma-i
toes__ are heating, g_et jars ready.
When tomatoes have come to
a rolling boil, remove from heat.
Fill one hot, sterilized jar at a
time With‘ hot tomatoes (a funnel
helps). Cover with hot juice to
within a half inch of top. Add
a teaspoon of salt to each quart.
Work out air bubbles with a
knife blade, and add more juice
if needed. Adjust jar top ac
cording to directions for its type,
woiiking fast so tomatoes will not
coo .
Put each jar into the canner
as soon as jar is filled and lid
adjusted. Water should cover one
or two inches over jar tops. When
water boils hard, put ,on canner
lid and begin counting time. Pro
cess 10 minutes at sea level. At
higher altitudes, add an extra
minute to processing time for each
1000 feet. Jars should be placed
top-side up on thick cloth or paper
to cool. Keep jars well apart
and out of drafts. ,
Tomato juice is put up in much
the same way as plain tomatoes.

and put through a fine sieve. Add
to tomatoes one teaspoon of salt
to each quart. (Other seasonings
should be added when the juice is
tobeusedascertainspicesmay
cause unattractive darkening dur
ing storage.) Reheat at once to
boiling. Fill into hot jars and
leave 54 inch head space. Adjust
lids according to kind and process
for 15 minutes. Approximately
2% to 3 lbs. of tomatoes are
needed to yield one quart.
Apricots are not being canned
this year. at many canneries for
civilian use; Since this fruit is
a very valuable source of cop
per and vitamin A it would be
well to plan to home can some.
