Salvage. School children get in the scrap. The school children of America were officially organized for a nationwide salvage program starting on Monday, October 5, 1942. The children are going into the field as a junior army engaged in a major campaign for victory. Plans included the laying out of definite areas in each community to be assigned to specific groups of children. Plans were also made for holding meetings, collecting scrap, storing it and getting it to central points for shipment. Roanoke, Virginia has already gotten its program underway. This is one of the first official pictures of the school salvage campaign (taken in Roanoke where it is actually in operation) and it presents a fair sample of what is taking place all over the country. This picture shows children receiving instructions in school, after which they will be made lieutenants, sergeants, corporals, etc., and undertake the actual collection of scrap metal, rubber, fats and greases

Manpower, junior size. Too young to help? Not the youngsters of Roanoke, Virginia. They're out to win the war by gathering up every piece of scrap metal, every bit of worn out rubber, and all waste fats and greases in the town
Manpower, junior size. Saturday's a holiday for most of the nation's small-fries, but to these youngsters of Roanoke, Virginia, it's fat collection day. As part of their junior commando activities, these boys and girls collect all fats and greases from local housewives during the week, and turn it over to school authorities on Saturday. From here, the fats are sent to a rendering plant where precious glycerin will be derived from it

Why greases must be saved. A soldier of the home front--and there's one in every American kitchen--saves all waste fats and greases so that they can be processed into ammunition for America's soldiers on the battlefronts. Pan and broiler drippings, deep fats, renderings from bacon rinds, these are some of the fats which should be put through a strainer to remove meat scraps and other solids, and poured into wide-mouthed cans such as coffee or fat cans
Why greases must be saved. Introducing two good soldiers of the home front: the housewife who saves her waste household fats and greases, and the butcher to whom she gives this salvaged fat after she has collected at least one pound, strained it through a metal sieve and poured it into a large, wide-mouthed can. Butchers displaying the poster shown here will pay househoulders for the fat, and sell it to rendering plants thereby turning this valuable material into industrial channels where it will be processed into ammunition for America's fighting men

Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Valuable fats from waste household greases are recovered by a pressure process in an expeller at a rendering plant. These fats drain into a settling tank and are later drawn off into tallow storage tanks, from where they are conveyed to a soap plant for the making of soap and glycerin
Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Cans filled with reclaimed household grease are dumped into pressure cookers at a rendering plant. Often they are prepared the way the householder does. The cooker melts the greases, and the empty cans are removed for detinning. Other types of cookers remove grease from cans by steam plates and hot coils, eliminating the necessity for putting the cans into the cooker

Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Empty cans from which reclaimed household greases have been removed are shoveled from a vat at a rendering plant. The greases will be rendered for the making of soap and glycerin. These cans, often prepared the way the householder does, will be sent to a detinning plant for the recovery of tin and steel

Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Moisture and foreign matter from reclaimed household greases are drained from cookers into open vats at a rendering plant. The liquid next drains into a settling tank where additional tallow is recovered. The residue becomes cracklings, consisting of meat, bones and some fats, and will be used as animal food
Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Tallow made from reclaimed kitchen greases is pumped into a tank car from a storage tank at a rendering plant. From here the tallow goes to a soap factory where glycerin is produced as a byproduct of the soap- making process

Conversion. Rendering of household fats. Reclaimed household greases from America's kitchens drain into an open vat at a rendering plant. Some of the batches are recooked with additional fats to bring them up to certain specific grades
