To have canned between 143 million and 160 million quarts of fruits and vegetables in a year is a pretty fair sized job. Iowa homemakers, assisted in some instances by their families, did just that last year, if a survey which we made shows the true picture of what happened in 1943.* The survey was made by Iowa State College and the State Nutrition Council.
