Many of you have no doubt kept In
touch with the plans now being made
ror tne organization of a central r.
change through which medium the fruit
products of the Pacific northwest may
be marketed to the. benefit of both
producer and consumer. I
This requires that co-ODeratlon of all
fruitgrowers, as far as possible, must
be secured and the business conduct
ed slong Intelligent lines, governed
by men experienced in selline and
distributing, and sustained by oth r?
willing to supply these, agencies with
an honest pack of guaranteed quali
To perfect this organization two
meetings of the growers of the stat
uregon, Washington. Idaho an.1
Montana have been held with the re
suit that a plan of operation has been
aaoptta, which plan is now In the
hands of an adjustment committee
and Is belr-presented to the various
local assertions, with Instructions
that the plans be ratified or the ob
jections tnereto bt made manifest. It
is the duty of this committee to adjust
these differences which arise and at
some later date call anoth-r conven
tion to accept or reject the amended
plan. If the revised plan is found to
be satisfactory the exchange will be
incorporated at once, presumably un
der the non-profit Incorporating law
of the state of Washington.
Being a delegate at the Walla Wal
la meeting and having been appoint
ed to bring this question before the
fruit grow-rs of Eastern Oregon I am
confronted with a condition which
rrakes the work extremely dlfflcuit.
Little or no organization' In many
lines has kept , La Grande and the
Grande Ronde Valley in the rear
guard of the forward march of the
?reat northwest, and this lack of. or
ganization has hindered the fruit In

tation we have establish is by no
It Is to advance the cause of con
certed action In this particular line
that I have thus pablicly taken up
this work. It is a matter that con
cerns not only the apple men but all
itlrrs who believe In our future and
have' faith In the Grande Ronde val
ley. l et me point out one clause in the
proposed plan that eliminates this setv
Mon from any voice in th? movement
unless we wake un and become thor
oughly convinced that we a"re a fac

dustry and are willing to back our
conviction by earn?st endeavors to
harmonize our differences and

temporaries have offered us the corn
but they are not going to grind It for
