Can Vegetables, Fruit and the Kaiser, Too

"Can Vegetables, Fruit and the Kaiser Too"
-by J. Paul Verrees

War in Europe meant that the United States would need to step up its efforts to supply the Allies with enough food.

Paul Verrees' "Can Vegetables, Fruit and the Kaiser Too" encouraged food conservation and disparaged Germany at the same time.
