ter from J. D. Ross, Bonneville ad
ministrator: "We have been informed that
many agricultural groups, including
cooperatives, have been interested in
setting up small community plants,
including refrigerating lockers, for
the processing and .preserving of
agricultural products. It has been
suggested that one of the main dif
ficulties has been found in the meth
of financing these relatively inex
"We are eager to assist you and
these various groups in this matter,
and would therefore appreciate your
placing the subject before your ex
ecutive committee. We would be
pleased to receive comments and
suggestions as to the types of plants
which might be feasible in your ter
ritory, the kinds of products to be
preserved or processed, and esti
mates of the costs involved. This in
formation will enable us to form an
idea of your needs and to formulate
ways and means whereby these
needs may be met."
Coordinating this need comes the
"Country Home" editorial:
"Many oldsters remember when
drying, pickling and smoking were
the principal home methods of pre
serving home-grown foods. Then
canning became general. Of late,
the community ice locker, keeping
fruits, meats and vegetables by
quick-freezing, has been available
to many neighborhoods. Now science
is giving us another aid to increase
further the value of home produce
the individual quick-freezing unit
for the farm home. Containing per
haps thirty cubic feet of storage
space, this simple heavily insulated
box can be placed in a cellar, shed,
or anywhere convenient, and the
extra mess of beans or peas, picked
at their best, can be stowed in the
freezer right at home. The contents
will be available, of course, at any
moment. Thus will be eliminated
the principal disadvantage of the
community locker, the necessity of
making a trip to town whenever
needed. Now about to emerge from
the experimental state, the new unit
will enrich the farm table with home
grown products out of season, and
give new values to the home gar
den." Get ready for Bonneville. B. H.
