The giant "King Crab" of the Bering Sea, which before the war supplied a substantial amount of the canned crab meat which the Japanese sold to the United States, will be canned commercially by Americans for the first time this year. Prior to the war the Japanese were taking the "King Crab" in sight of American territory, canning it on floating canneries, and shipping it to the United States for sale. In one pre-war year alone we imported 10,720,000 pounds of crab meat valued at 4,582,000 dollars from Japan and ninety-five percent of our canned crab meat came from this source

From the left: Stewart McDonald, head of the [FHA?]; Secretary Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Morris L. Coske, head of Rural Electrification, and Peter Grimm, housing expert working in the Treasury Department. Grimm and his associates from New York are concluding a report on housing conditions east of the Mississippi which is expected to show only from 2 to 4 percent vacancies. His report to the President is expected to have a bearing on the future policy of both Federal Housing, Works Progress Administration, the Rural Electrification program and Rural Resettlement, 10/29/35

Aboard a trap fishing boat, delivering fish at the freezer. Most of the trap boats are owned by the freezers. Men work on shares, the company gets fifty percent. Prices are set according to days supply in all traps. As in almost all cases traps share equally in a day's run. Fishermen get little money either way--they either sell little fish for a comparatively decent price, or much fish for very little. Provincetown, Massachusetts

Old auto and Advance Rumley tractor in junkyard at Wildrose, North Dakota. Tractor cost six or seven thousand dollars and burned. A mixture of about fifty percent kerosene and fifty percent water. The water was added to keep the valves from overheating

Soil erosion in the cornfield on William Keefe's farm in Benton County, Indiana. Note subsoil, and gradation to fertile topsoil from left to right. This county has the best soil in the state. This field has been in hay or pasture six out of the last sixteen years; the slope at this point in the field is three to five percent. The owner, who did not know how to stop this erosion, had followed the plan of filling in gullies by plowing until two years ago; thus this picture shows gullying on the field in two years' time. Rotating crops: corn, wheat, clover, would have stopped this erosion

Family of four to be returned to Oklahoma by the Relief Administration. "They won't go until they get so hungry that there's nothing else for them to do.

Mexican miner and child, Bertha Hill, West Virginia. Many Mexicans and Negroes were brought into Scotts Run around 1926 to break the strike. Now about one fourth of all mines employ any at all and these, only very small percent and "only the cream."

Salinas Valley, California. Large scale, commercial agriculture. This single California County (Monterey) shipped 20,096 carlots of lettuce in 1934, or forty-five percent of all carlot shipments in the United States. In the same year 73.8 percent of all United States carlot shipments were made from Monterey County, Imperial Valley, California (7,797 carlots) and Maricopa County, Arizona (4,697). Production of lettuce is largely in the hands of a comparatively small number of grower-shippers, many of whom operate in two or all three of these counties. Labor is principally Mexican and Filipino in the fields, and white American in the packing sheds. Many workers follow the harvests from one valley to the other, since plantings are staggered to maintain a fairly even flow of lettuce to the Eastern market throughout the year

Has enabled him to build small ski lodge and do many repairs to property

Army truck manufacture (Dodge). Trucks built for the U.S. Army by Dodge are tested on this ramp to make sure that all of them are able to meet the Army specifications of climbing a sixty percent grade. Brakes are also tested at the same time to make sure of their ability to hold the truck on any part of this tremendously steep incline

Steel manufacture, Allegheny-Ludlum. It won't be long now! Here's a pile of scrap collected from various roadside junkheaps for re-use by the steel mills producing for defense. Soon it will be loaded into open hearth and other types of furnaces to be used in the production of new steel for defense industry. Nearly forty percent of the steel produced comes from scrap metals

Salinas, California. Intercontinental Rubber Producers. Two-year-old guayule plants. At two years, the guayule contains about nine percent rubber of dry weight. To supply the emergency needs for rubber, these shrubs would have to be planted closer together if a two year harvest cycle were planned. Rubber yield per acre would then closely approximate the yield from mature shrubs

Jalopies for defense. These cubes of scrap metal were once the bodies of junked automobiles, rotting in ugly auto graveyards from coast to coast. They will now provide some of the millions of tons of scrap steel so badly needed for defense production. They are baled up in this manner to prevent their burning away when they are thrown into the blazing inferno of an open hearth steel furnace. Open hearth furnaces are fed with approximately 50 percent scrap steel

Defense housing, Erie, Pennsylvania. The General Electric Company at Erie, Pennsylvania, employs approximately 8000 workers. It anticipates additional employment of some 4000 by next year. Only some twenty-five percent of these have to be imported, for local labor is being trained for these jobs at government vocational training schools. This will prevent the disruption of the community's economic life which would be caused by an over-large immigration of labor

Knowles, a minor league baseball pitcher, broke a league record for strike-out; now he's out to break the company record for shell production (Manitowac Shipyards)

Tin can alley leads to victory. Every precious bit of metal in America's salvaged tin cans is used in the war effort. The complete utilization of discarded cans includes one percent tin and ninety-nine percent steel scrap. Here, carloads of this "black scrap," the leftover steel from the discarded cans, from which the tin has been removed, is being shipped to a steel mill where it will be forged into weapons of war

Bantam, Connecticut. War workers' homes. The war has brought approximately a thirty-three percent increase in housing facilities in Bantam--an eighty-unit federally financed housing project about five minutes from the Warren McArthur factory. The first forty units--two to a house, were occupied in early January 4, 1942 and the second forty had already been rented pending completion. As the automobiles and tires of workers in Bantam's defense industries wear out, it is probable that additional new housing facilities will be needed

Sunday Mass at the Corpus Christi Catholic church. The pastor, Father Refinus, is white, but ninety-eight percent of the congregation is colored. The total church membership is over 2,000. Chicago, Illinois

Dehydrated foods. Top war agency officials lunch on dehydrated foods--the kind of food that is being sent overseas to save shipping space. From left to right: Leon Henderson, Price Administrator; Donald M. Nelson, Chairman of the War Production Board (WPB); Brigadier General Carl Hardigg, Office of the Quartermaster General; and William Batt, WPB Vice Chairman. The luncheon was arranged on November 6, 1942 in the Social Security Building by Lee Marshall, Food Consultant to Mr. Nelson, to acquaint war agency officials with the progress that has been made in this country in the field of dehydrated foods. Such dried foods result in savings of up to eighty percent in volume and up to ninety percent in weight
