De Gaulle May
For 3rd Force
.'By ASSOCIATED PRESS)
It is within the meaning of his-
tory that no two great alignments
can rule the world for long. Sooner
or later there is a division of for-
ces, not too much of a division, but
a division nevertheless. We may be
witnessing the beginning of such
a process now. It's in the cards
that there will be a third force and
perhaps a fourth aae.
President De Gaulle of Fraiiee
has declared himself seriously on
this point. He has proposed a pop-
ular referendum in Western Europe
to name an assembly that would
be a step forward toward political
unity. The goal is to assure regular
cooperation in the fields of politics,
economics, culture and defense.
There would be an assembly form-
ed by delegates from national par-
liaments. The assembly would
meet at periodic intervals and act j
as a super-authority.
Whether De Gaulle means that i
j Europe will eventually take care I
r of its defense problems outside of;
j NATO is difficult to say. As many
recall. NATO was not originally .
meant as a permanent institution.
It w s Intended is a temporary
umbrella while Europe got organi-
zed. Long-term aspects were left
in the air, so to speak.
The impression is that once
Europe feels able to operate on its
own, it will become impatient of
American advice and leadership. [
The prospect will not actually dis-
please us, by the way. This coun-
try is not against a third force.
Besides, its future is not irrevo-
cably tied to the Atlantic. Thferf
is more to be done, and perhaps
more at stake, in the Pacific.

I he whole thing began in 179a
when i lie French directory, anxious
tn siipplv its armies with unspoiled
rations, offered a pi i/t- to anyone
able to devise a new and effective
menus of keeping food in an edi-
ble state Fifteen years later, after
exhaustive research, an ohseure
Parisian chef named Nicholas Ap-
pert lilled an empty wine bottle
with partially cooked food and
corked it. Then he dunked the bot-
tle in boiling water. <"ind present-
ed it to Napoleon bonaparte.
Although neither the emperor
not Appert suspected it at the
time, they were contributing to the
hit h nf the tin can Bonaparte gave
the chef 12.000 francs and Appert
hurried home to write a book, a
volume called the are of preserv-
ing all kinds of animal and vege-
That same year Englishman I'e-
t"r Durand read Appert's hook,
and readily recognized the merit
of the chefs idea. Obtaining a pa-
tient from Kinu George the third ,
for the Fnclish rights to the pre- I
serving process, Durand did some I

A couple of other Britishers. Bry-
an Donkin and .lohn Hall, establish,
ed the first commercial canning
factory at Bermondsey, England,
in 1813. They tested their products
by offering provisions to the Eng-
lish armed forces. Canned food
was shipped to military bases all
j over the world. Ironically, one of
these posts was at St. Helena, by
that time the residence of exiled
Thomas Kensctt Introduced the
tin can in the U. S. in 1828 and
by 1837 ihey were well esetablish-
ed in this country. Canning be-
came a major industry during the
Civil War By 18H5. production had
jumped from a pre-war output of
5 million cans to a new high of 30
Tin cans had to be made entirely
by hand in those early days and a
skilled plumper could turn out a-
bout 5 or 6 an hour. Mechaniza-
tion and increased use of steel j
helped boost production to about
60 cans an hour by the late 1870's.
Then in the 1890s somebody inven-
ted a machine capable of rolling
them out at a clip of 6,000 an hour.
Today the most advanced machi-
nes make more than 30.000 cans
an hour. They also can be filled
and sealed at the rate of about
1.000 per minute.
In the L'. S. we use roughly 42
billion tin cans a year. An Ame-
rican housewife can select from
among 1.200 different kinds of can.
