IOWA LEADS IN FOOD LOCKERS 5,200 Plants Operated Throughout Nation By JAMES MARLOW ' and GEORGE ZIELKE Washington, (£)_Food lackers which started with an icebox in the first World War, are coming of age in this one. In food lockers--compartments arranged in refrigeration plants like safe-deposit boxes in a bank --families can store perishable foods like meat, poultry eggs butter, fruits, vegetables. Undoubtedly they will continue to spread through suburban and rural areas. II is less likely they will find equal popularity in cities. About 1,500,000 families now have food lockers in approximately 3,200 plants. The average cost per locker per year is $H. The war production board and war food administration have permitted about 1,000 plants to be built since Pearl Harbor More are being built. More will be. The first lockers, officials here say, were set up in Centralia Washington, in 1917 on an humble scale: boxes in an ice house. The idea took time to spread. The locker plants got started in the middle-west on a solid scale in the raid-1930's; The" mid- vest still leads the rest of the country. There are 500 in Joiva, topping all states. Generally (here are 2 kinds of locker plants: The limited service type, providing frozen storage only; and the complete service type, .resembling in many ways a small, modern packing plant. The service includes for the farmer; either on the farm or at the plant, chilling, aging, cutting grinding, curing, smoking, lard rendering, packaging, labeling,' and quick freezing of fruits and vegetables. The service, of course, carries a cost in addition to locker rental Here are some locker advantages for a rural or farm family: Farmer Jones, who used to sell nis PIRS at market and then buy pork for his "family from the local retail store, can take his phr to the locker plant. There it is chilled, cut, pock- aged and stored in his locker which he visits as he needs meat for his table. Thus he saves the difference betweeh what he would have oaid for that whole pig from time to time in a retail store and what it cost him to raise the pig and nave it butchered and stored. Or Jones raises chickens. It's October, His eating chickens arc 7 months old, just mature and ri«ht for killing. He figures his family will c;it 100 through the winter. He used to kill them one at a time. This meant work, feed and some chickens lost through weather or illness. Xow he takes the whole hundred to the locker plant, has (hem killed, stored and frozen, saves himself lime, work, money and worry, and has fresh chicken through Ihe winter. This is the kind of plan which could greatly help farmers who never have attempted to store their own meat on their own premises. For instance: Farmers in the south. But the idea of lockers for city dwellers seems limited in relation to the meat-growing farmer It appears less likely that a city- dweller would try to buy half a steer or a whole pig and have it stored. Certainly he couldn't do it now because of rationing. After the war meat packers may work out a plan for frozen boneless meat or some other method lo keep consumers happy. Maine Grows Lemons North Scbasro, Maine, (U.R)--. Lemon pie--made from New England-grown lemons--is being en- loyed by Lawson Rowe's family. Tho Rowes planted the lemon tree in their backyard several years sgo. Three years later it bore fruit, ^ut the lemons were no larger than grapes. The latest crop, however, weighed a total of 17 ounces, and it was possible to make the pies. Hayfield--Cpl. and Mrs. Marvin '. Johnson returned lo Fall River, ass., Sunday after a short fur- ough at the parental T. T. Blank ind John Johnson homes. Books Supplied War Prisoners by Y. M. Agency in Europe Perhaps the most unusual of circulating libraries are those which supply the working detachments of large prison camps. Some ?nnnn° nSC P ermaile "t camps have 100,000 prisoners, divided among a 1,000 or more working detachments scattered widely throughout adjacent areas. Special boxes of books are made up m the libraries of the permanent camps, each box selected both to satisfy the varied tastes within each working group, and also to difter sufficiently from all the other book kits, so that these may be rotated among the detachments some of which are absent from the main camps for weeks or months. Most of the books sent to permanent camps in Europe are from large book depots at the Geneva Switzerland, headquarters of War Prisoners Aid of the Y M C A which supplies them as part of its' world-wide program of education recreation, religion and vocational training for war prisoners.
