' Aim aims (crate- 45) The principal object oii' th ezinvention is the Productionv of a' non-metalliocontai-ner adapted for the shipment or storage of a numberof cemmodities of varyingtypesfand including foodstuffs, which commodities may beieither solid semisolid and, in' some casealiquid in characterv per-likeor analagous materialthe thickness and consequentstrengthof which-may'varydependf if the meeting edges'of thebody-offthe container i with its cover and base are properly sealed. 7 The use of the invention is particularly desirableat the present; time in view ofthe prevailing metal ishortage :as metal does not enter i into the construction of the container or of the component parts.

"A further object of the invention is the pro-i duction of a container of the aboveicharacterf poses and which in. itspreferred form shall com- V which shallbe. leak pi'oot for all practical'pur-' prise alcylindricallbody"coristructed of a paper- I like material and a base and ower constructed preferably of a hardened clay-likeorplastic m'aterial which shall possess rigidity-and strength bers for the body of the container;

and act as supporting-and strengthening mem- A further object of the invention'is the produc tion'of a containerihaving the above characteris tics which shalljbe'resistant tofracture andabuse incident to ordinary. handling; 1

A further object of. thein vention .is the production of...a container of theaboveyoharacter, 1

the component parts of which may her-manumay-be assembledtogether to form the completed package in a minimumof time.

Other and further objects of the'invention .will

be apparent as the description thereof proceeds,
