NO HOUSEHOLD FOOD SEIZURES

The U.S. food administration has been obliged repeatedly to deny rumors that the government intends to commandeer preserves and canned goods put up in American homes. In 1918, home canning and preserving will be done on a greater scale than ever before, officials in Washington believe. And they assure all patriotic housewives that foods so saved are theirs, and theirs alone.
