Prospect For Coming Season

Twenty Thousand Dollars of Eastern
. Money Resulted! From Sale of .
Douglas County Broccoli
During Last Year.
The Broccoli growers of Douglas
County met at the City Hall, Rose
burg, Oregon, Saturday, January 4,
1919. Dr. C. H. Bailey being elected
chairman, and the meeting promptly
called to order. He stated that the
meeting was called for the purpose
of talking over any matters of Inter
est to broccoli growers, and invited
discussion on any subject the growers
might wish to bring up.
Mr. Cooley was the first speaker
and said: "I believe broccoli grow
ing is of vital interest ami of great'
importance to this community. Those
who have grown it regular for the
past 4 or 5 years have done well, and
have found It to be one of .the best
paying crops. But it is a community
crop, andi one man cannot success
fully raise a large acreage without
employing a great deal of hired help.
What is needed is more growers, soi
that a larger acreage may be planted
thus securing greater returns of out
side money to the county and to our
selves. Last year some $20,000 of
Eastern money was returned to the
growers of Douglas County for their
boccoll crop, this year It will be less
owing largely to the acute shortage
of farm labor, but now that the war
Is over, and the men will bs return
ing to the farm, they should be en
couraged and Instructed bow to raise
broccoli, and, as I said before, they
will And it to be one of the best
paying crops a farmer can raise. We
can also raise cauliflower more ex
tensively than at present. We should;
raise enough caulitllwer to be able
to ship it In car load lots, and It
should be ready market in November
or early pecember. I am advised
thnt California Cauliflower is now
selling in New York at very nice
prices, some of it bringing $3.00 to
$3.75 per pony crate. We can rnlfe
better cauliflower than anybody and
should make an effort to learn what
strain Is best suited to this locality.
Dr. 'Bailey in reply said: "We
Bhould certainly make an effort to
plant a greater acreage of broccoli,
also cauliflower, and raise bigger
croJ)B of both. I believe we have
only begun to scratch the surface on
the broccoli question, when compared
with what Douglas County will do in
the future In the production of broc
coli. "We shoukii be planting 20 to
30 times as mluch of it as we are
how planting, so that instead of re
ceiving $20,000 a year of Eastern
money for this crop, the returns will
be four-'or five hundred thousand
dollars per year, and it Is the aim of
the broccoli growers of the Umpqua
Valley Fruit Union to encourage Its
cultivation, and to impart to others
the benefit of our experience gaineu
within the past few years in raising
this crop, to assist them in getting
the very best results. In raising
broccoli, like some other things, there
is nothing that will take the iplace
of rain, sunshine, work and common
sonHO. The Almighty, in His gracious
providence, has and will, supply us
with nn abundance of the two first,
but they will be of no avail without
an intelligent application of the two
last, and the greatest of these is
work. Let no man think that he can
plant the seed, set out the plants,
and then sit comfortnbly down in the
barn Klioor and smoke cigarettes to
awnlt the harvest, and get a crop.
One or the most important things Is
cultivation, and I believe the best
timo to cultivate is before the plants
are set out in the fleld, and I will
ask Mr. Fred Curtis to tell us some
thing about cultivation and putting
the 1 u li it In lit condition."
Mr. Curtis, in .sneaking of expen
ses, made the following romark: "My
big expense is in propnring the
ground. 1 begin early, plow deep,
disk deop, and get a good deep dust
mulch before setting out tho plants.
I find whero the ground is rough and
lumpy the broccoli does not grow
well, and often the plants will die.
I put In iplenty of work preparing tho
ground, and I believe It pays me
best to do so. I find that I cannot
properly proparo more than 7 or 8
acres of land with one man and one
tunui of horses, and nt the snmo time
do tho other work there is always to
bo done on any Bmntl fnrm, and 1
am satisfied that this acroago pays
me hotter than twice as much acroago
would If tho ground was not properly
preparod. Broccoli Is tho best (pay
ing crop I know of, and I bolleve
thero Is nothing thnt will boat it if
a man works right and takes enre
to proporly prepare the ground be
fore planting. One year a neighbor
of mine had ten acres of broccoli that
was almost a total failure for no
other reason than because the ground
was not put in first class shape be
foro planting. I have always had a
ipnying crop from ground that was
proporly workedl up before setting
out the plants.
Mr. Cooley replied: "Each grow
er docs not take care of his broccoli
the same as everyone else. This is
a community crop. All must culti
vate nnd raise a good qunlity, to as to
raise tho nverngo standard grade, and
all should take the best possible caro
so that the pack will nil grade Extra
number 1. If they will do this, there
Is nothing they can plant, that will
pay them better."
Mr. R. C. Brown said: "I am a
email grower, but want ta say, there
is nothing I have planted that has
maid me any bettor than broccoli. I
know nothing, I could put In thn
ground that wouldi bring me In moro
clear money per acre."
Mr. Butnor commented the dis
cussion with this summary: "The
seed question Is one of groat Import
ance. Growers cannot afford the ex
pense of testing out their seed. For
a man to prepare several acres of
land, set out the plants, cultivate
and care for It, only to find at har
vest time that the plants do not head
up, is very discouraging, and all be
cause he got hold or poor seen, we
should llnu some way of testing the
seed one year ahead, but that would
cost a great deal of money for each
one to do."
On motion the chair appointed
Mr. Buttner, Mr. Ueland and Frank
Brown a committee to investigate
the seed question. On motion C. H.
Bnlley, S. D. Cooley and R. H. C.
Wood were appointed a committee
on publicity. After further discus
sion on preparing the Beed bed, trans
planting, differences in soil, fertili
zers, etc.,' the complete report of
which cannot be printed for lack of
space, Mr. J. E. Harvey and C. H.
Bailey were appointed a committee
to Investigate fertilizers. . .
Among those present were Messrs.
Geo. Winston, H. A. Winston. L. Ue

LONDON, Dec. - 7. (Correspond
ence of the Associated Press.) There
will be no passenger or commercial
airplane service from England to any
other country until complete plans
are formulated for regulating and
controlling air traffic, Bays an official
of the British Air Ministry. That
will be a task, he said, fraught with
enormous difficulties.
' "To begin with," he pointed out,
"there are no laws of the air at
present, and to bring the air Into
the commercial sphere without laws
would produce chaos. There would
be immediate trouble with the cus
toms authorities of all nations. Ade
quate legislation will have to be
framed to prevent contraband mer
chandise being "carried through the
air from one country to another.
