May 10, 1918 The canning of clams at the Alaska Clam-Canning Company’s plant near Tonka closed this week for the season. Clams have now started to spawn and are unfit for canning. The plant was started up on February 15, since which time 2,100 cases have been packed.

The canning of clams will start again September 1. In the meantime the plant will be operated as a salmon cannery, a one-line outfit now being in course of installation.
