Saturday afternoon at the canning factory was lively times.
Sixteen girls tried for the prizes of swiftest peeling, the time was 5
1/2 hours. Eight girls were selected and each chose a partner,
as two always peel at a pail. There was a tie between the first
prize, which was one dollar apiece Clara Shaw and Eva Thompson peeled
96 pails and Bertha Salsbury and Lisle Welton the same. The
least any couple peeled was 74 pails. Such hustlers you never
saw. It was a picnic for the tables next to the prize tables for
they couldn't get enough tomatoes to keep them busy, and so had plenty
of time to watch the race. The presperation just poured
off the faces of the men that waited on the racers, the way they
worked meant business.
I think people generally do not realize how much business is done at
the canning factory. 215 persons are at work there now.
Last Saturday thirty-four thousand cans of tomatoes were put up that
day, beside thousands of cans of corn.
