FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1944 Now is Time For Canning Chicken Old Birds Best For L^ Long Processing And ; High Temperatures H is good news to hoinemakers looking ahead lo next winter's chicken pie that the old hens, abundant In many localities during the coming months, are the best chicken for canning, old birds stand the long processing and high temperatures necessaiy in meat canning, whereas young tender chickens, when canned, lose flavor and develop a stringy texture. Can chicken with a pressure winner, home economists of the U. S. Department of Agriculture strongly urge. Safe processing In a reasonable time lakes n temperature of 250 P. far hleiirr Ihnn bn!lin» Only way to get Ihis high temper, uture Is to hold eteam under pressure. Have all equipment. washed and clean, as the first step. TO prevent darkening of the meat, put up chicken in glass rather than tin, and use no copper or iron utensils in preparation. Never cook or Jet- chicken stand in galvanized iron tubs or pails. Dress chicken for canning as for cooking, being careful not to break the gall bladder when removln^ the "Innards. 1 Cut into usual serving Pieces. Leave skin on o r not as desired. Trim off lumps of fat, keeping only enough for flavor Too much fat. in Ihe jar may cook out onto rubber ring and spoil the Sort Various Pieces Sort chicken into three piles: <n Put together meaty pieces such a s breasts, thighs, legs, upper wing jointe, to be canned with or without bone. Canned with bone, ~Jicken takes less time to process wul has better flavor. 12) Put bony pieces such as backs, wings, necks together. These are best if tile meat is stripped from the bone, packed, and covered with broth before processing. <3) Keep giblets separated] Canned with other meat of chicken, they discolor and flavor It. Can livers alone and gizzards and hearts together. Precopk meaty pieces, bony pieces, and giblets separately. Place Into boiling water, lower heat, and simmer until raw color is nearly gone from center of pieces, about 8 to 10 minutes. Simmer chicken that's to be canned, without bone long enough so meat can be cut from "one, tliefi cut off meat and reheat. Don't Use Big Jars For packing chicken use pint or quart Jars — no larger—and have them hoi. ir salt is desired, put it In the bottom or each Jar, >,!, level teaspoon to a pint jar; 1 level te.? spoon to a quart jar. Pack boiling hot chicken and broth into hot jars and leave <f. inch head space at top. Be sure the broth covers the meat.' Work out 'air btibulcs with a knife. u se a clean, damp cloth to wipe the rubber ring or sealing edge clean. Any grease or bits of meal w i[| keep the lid from making a tight sea. Adjust jar lid as kind requires. Jars are now ready to put In Kmsure eanner. Have 2 or 3 Inches ot foiling water in kettle part so the eanner will not boil dry and be damaged. Place hot filled jars on the rack, being careful not to let BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 •EDSON IN WASHINGTON Light Metals Reconversion BY PETER EDBOK Courier News Wasblujfon Correspondent A new "chlnk-ln" theory of re- conversion of Industry from war to pence has been brought to Washington by 1. W. Wilson, vice president of the Aluminum Company of America. It spells out like this: Here Is n company making aluminum products for war. As long as Its production Is on war orders, everything i s fine and Hie company lias a feast. But when a contract is completed, everything goes fcoey and the company has a famine until it gels a new war order. • In the interim, organization is disrupted, manpower drifts to other jobs. And when the new contract Is received, this company has (o build up Us organization again. . H is Mr. Wilson's theory that in these belweeii-contracl periods, manufacturers should be permitted to "chink-In" production of civilian goods—subject only to manpower -shortages In the area and other military requirements — so that when new military orders are placed, contractors will have their working, forces .together and be to swing hi on new war production with greater facility. Wilson's further argument is that the "clilnke'd- In" civilian production thus obtained will help fill the pipeline of supply and enable business to avoid the three-to-si.v months' delay which will inevitably result if everyone Is forced to .wall- and coii- verl at the same : time. DRAMATIC SESSION Wilson presented his ideas before a special session of the Senate's Truman Committee Investigating the war effort, in many ways'It was a dramatic isession. War Production Chairman Donald M. Nelson was first'to testify, explaining steps his organization had taken to deal with cancellation of war production restrictions and reconver- sion in the aluminum anj magnesium industry. Nelson reduced the issue to the simple example of prohibiting tlie production of nonessential items like aluminum cocktail shakers as long as there was a shortage of more essential aluminum pots and pans. • After Nelson came Wilson anil Vice President Cieoigc Gibbons yf the Aluminum Company, and Ilnally R. S. Reynolds, (.'resitlent of Reynolds Metals, who In 1939 entered the aluminum production field In competition to Alcoa. Wliuf the Truman Committee was driving nt was the earliest, possible relaxing of controls over the aluminum and magnesium Industries, so that private business might take the ImUn- tive hi reconversion and show what postwar use could be nmde of the light metals now in surplus production and facing further heavy cutbacks. Before the three-horn hearing was over, Reynolds and the Aluminum company officials, facing each oilier as competitors, hud given a fantastic picture of what the long-predicted "light melnls revolution" might menu for America) Industry. DIVISION OF IN'DUSTKV SOUGHT Mr. Reyuolds's main point, however, with regard to peacetime utilization of government-owlet magnesium and aluminum plants. Reynolds made Ihe plea for government leasing of these plants to private, uusine&s, and for. the creation of a third major producing company to .share the business which his company and the Aluminum company now hold exclusively. Reynolds suggested that a major user of light metals—such as Henry Ford or the entire automobile Industry—become the third producer. His reason for seeking a division of the industry was so that there could be no possible postwar danger of monopolistic price increase. • This was a bold proposal lo make in public before a Senate coimnlt- them touch or tip. Steam must flow roimd and over each jar. Count processing time from the moment 15 pound pressure Is reached. If canning is done at an altitude of 2,000 feet .or more, add i pound of pressure to the 15 pounds for each 2,000 feet above sea level. Processing Time- Process chicken with bone C5 minutes for pints, 75 for quarts. Process chicken without bone 85 minutes for pints, 120 for .Quarts. Giblets are usually put up only In l*int jars; process 85 minutes. When the time is up, slide ean- ner away from heat. Let pressure return to zero on dial-type gauge, wait .a minute or:two, (hen slowly open ! pet cock. Waiting longer'limy make it hard to get lid off. Then fasten cover and tilt far side up so steam escapes away from hands and face. As soon as jars are taken from canner, complete the seal at once, unless selfsealing type of jar lias been used. These need no further adjusting. Cool jars right tide'out of drafts. Store canned chicken In a cool, dry, dark place. ce, an:l (he Truman group was obviously ImpiCfsed.

VVI'li chalrinini Nelson Is Inclined lo move slowly, fearing new war demands mid lack of mniiiioiver (o penult even "chink-in" production loo .soon.
