The week beginning February 14 to
19 has been designated as prune week
and it will be generally observed
throughout the state. Prunes are a
staple Oregon crop and no better ar
ticle of fruit is grown anywhere than
the Oregon product. Export condi
tions are unsatisfactory this season
and growers are left with large stocks
»Id, facing because of this fact a
large loss. Every effort is being
made to remedy the situation and it
ia known that if local people would
utilize this healthful home _
product in the dishes that grace the
table in Oregon homes both the pro
ducer and grower would be benefitted

price today and can be used in prac

the good of the industry itself, but

will relieve the situation and bring
