Tho boys from tho county seat
wore unequal to tho task of holding
the locals down. Tholr floor work
was bettor than their shooting, how
vor, for though they took many
shots at tho baskets thoy could not
score. Tho flrst halt ended 22 to "2
for Ontario. Thon coach Latbrop
put a number of second string men
in and thoy continued to pile up a
one sided score so ho gave a number
of his third string men nn oppor

tho mooting discusses tho matter as
Thoro will bo a vory important

ra. to consider matters In connec
tion with marketing head lottuco.
This mooting Is for overyoito Inter-
osioa in uoau lottuco growing In
Mainour, Payette and Washington
"In calling this mooting I am. co
oporatlng with tho Malheur county
farm bureau, tho Canyon county

meeting In Ontario, all acting thru
tholr responsible renresontutives. It
Is oho of threo or four meetings bo-
ing Held this week at control points
from Twin Falls westward. Thoro
will be prosont representatives of
tho lutencptod organizations which
have been working on tho market
ing problem with head lettuco and
of tho California Vogetablo Union,
Including President Thomas O'Noli
I of that company, says Mr. Hrlot
. haupt.
Present estimates Indicate that
1000 cars or more of head lettuco
will, bo grown in the Snako Rlvor
valley this year. 8uch a crop
should be worth around 11,000.000
Qeforo this can bo realized by tho
growors, however, a very great
amount of money must bo put Into
the various Reins making up "cost
of production " Certainly It wpuld
bo a stupendous blunder on tho part
of the growers It they should pro
ceed to "buy" with cash and labor,
a great and valuable crop without
taking Into consideration to whom
It can be sold and how It roust bo
gotten to the consumers. Such a
lack of foresight could have but ono
result, and that would not be to the
liking, of tho growers nor to the
general business Interests of the
Snako River valley, to say nothing
of what would happen to tho lettuce
Industry which now gives such great
promise for tho futuro. The fate of
tho producer of good lettuce do
pends upon the efficiency of the
marketing organization which must
be built.
