From a negligible lcemk of juice in 1936, the governlment reported that the 1944 nationwide total was 3,034,495 dozen packs in tin and glass. This figure included sweet cider, which represents only a small amount of the total, it was explained. Washington growers, w i th 30,303,000 bushels of apples in 1944, seven million over 1943, are watching this new market. In th e first quarter of this year, a total of 752,167 dozen packs were reported wi'.h a considerable increase in tin packs, although ci- vilian use of tin is still limited. This marked inc'reage in the pro- duction of apple juice took place during th wartime years. An of- ficial of a nationwide food cam- pany maintained no figures on the pack until last year. "Aiding in this continued in- Crease in consumer acceptance m I.research work on apples juice can- ning practices and packaging pro- cedure which have resulted m greatly improved quality," said Dr. B.S. Cark, director of the re- search division of the American Can Company. Work on apples juice, according to Dr. Clark, has not been limited to improving methods of manufac turing and packing the pressed or "cider" type of juice but also has included the development of a new type "pulpy" or "whole" apple juice. "This pulpy juice is similar m consLstency to tomato juice and fruit nectars, and contains all of the edible solids of t.he fruit," he said. "Thus, it is quite different in appearance and body from the clear,, pressed and filtered types of apples juice that have found favor in the past. Like the latter, t}e new type of juice is prepared from selected, blended and pre- pared apps. It differs in that the fruit is then round uder conditions to prevent oxidation, to p resrye tim original flaor and aroma. ' " " : ,, f - . . , Thi. product has met wta favor in many c'ties and gives Fro- raise of taking its  alongside the clear or "cider" type apple juice in the postwar canned mar- kets," declared Dr. Clark.

War End An .inquiry among police and sheriff organizations brings the information that there is an in- crease of from twenty to fifty per- cent in automobile" accidents since fne ban on gasoline has been lift- ed. Garages are filled with cars for repair and thousands of ma. chines on th highways have every apPearance of being taken from a junk pile for thg[r last journey. A prominent citizen says that he will not take his car out on week- ends so long as this condition pre vails. Many cars are ten years or more old, the average would no doubt be seven or eight years for all cars on the highways. An average of four or five years would no doubt be the age of tires in use.
