HANKS YOUR JEWELER MEMO: TO ALL OUR PATRONS This is FROZEN FOOD LOCKER WEEK-Nationwide This week, November 10 - 15, 1947, locker plants throughout the country are celebrating. The locker industry has been firmly built. It has grown tremendously. And that's reason enough to celebrate. But we're happy for another reason, too. We know we've been able to help in America's Food Saving Program ! You — our patrons — have realized this all along. By using the frozen food locker method of food preservation, you have been able to use locally grown foods, goods produced in your own garden. And because of this, it has been unnecessary to delve into the Nation's marketable food supplies. At the same time, you've been able to save money — and eat better — and we've all made the best use of our local surpluses. In America today, over 4,000,000 thrifty families are patrons of over 9,000 locker plants. Each of^these families is helping tackle this food problem with its worldwide significance. More plants, more patrons every day are proving the value of the "locker way." You—our patrons—are to be congratulated for pioneering in better living through better eating. Let's continue talking over our food plans together — for you and your friends. It's worth it ! Postville Locker Service Telephone No. 288 MILO GERICKE, Prop.
