Many problems of vital Interest to
orchardlbts were discussed at the ap
ple growers' convention held last
week in connection with the National
Apple Show at Spokane, which was
attended by several local horticultur
Prof. It. Edward Trumble, of Wen
atchee, discussed spraying for cod
He said that his remarks were
chiefly based on experience in the
Wenatchee valley. After several
years' persistent spraying the Wen
atchee growers ,he said, had practi
cally banished the codling moth from
the valley, there not being more than
one per cent of wormy apples. Every
year had been an Improvement. Two
years ago 80 per cent were wormy.
This year no one had claimed a re
ward of one dollar for each wormy ap
Pointers on Spraying
In spraying, he declared, care must
be taken to fill the calix cups. In
some seasons the first spraying can
be done at the same time. In other
seasons different varieties blossom at
different periods and should be sepa
rately treated, and two or three spray
ings will be necessary.
Discussing the various forms of
arsenic spray Professor Trumble was
on the whole In favor of arsenic lead
spray as opposed to arsentte, thougn
the latter was good In certain cases.
For one thing arsenite did not stick
to the apples so well as arsenic lead.
Arsenite was, however, useful in deal
ing with other large worms, cut
woims and the larger caterpillars.
How much spraying should be done
was Impossible to say as localitie
varied so largely. If 80 per cent was
killed on a ten-acre tract 1,500,000
might result from the first brood of
worms. Even one worm might multi
ply so greatly as to seriously injure
an orchard. In some valleys there
were no worms and their increase de
pended largely on climatic conditions.
Asked as to whether the law did
not forbid spraying trees while in
flower on account of injury done to
bees and other beneficent insects,
Professor Trumble said that although
there was such a law in many states
there was no such law in Washing
ton. In the Wenatchee valley they
kept the bees confined during the
Professor Trumble, speaking from
the experience of supervising hun
dreds of thousands of trees, advocated
the planting of two-year-old trees.
C. J. Lewis, a large grower of Ore
gon, was In entire disagreement, say
ing his experience was that two-year-old
trees grown In nurseries were de
formed, and that much better results
were to be obtained from one-year
"whips." He was proud of his orch
ards raised from one-year trees, and
would be ashamed to show' his orch
ards raised from two-year trees, he
Professor Crane of the Hamilton
Fruit Association of Montana ,and
Charles A. Cole, horticulturist, of Lew
lBton, Idaho, spoke on the harvest
ing of apples. Professor Cole warn
ed growers not to let their pickers
overfil their baskets, as some would
in that case fall and get bruised. He
also said that the drawback to canvas-bottomed
baskets was that the
pickers might put them on the ground
where the apples would get grubby
or get bruised.
Prof. C. I. Lewis of the department
of horticulture at the Oregon Agricul
tural College, followed Mr. Morris
with a short address on "Preparation
"Don't overcrowd," he said. "While
an overcrowded orchard might yield
a greater number of apples at the
start, the quality of the fruit would
be so Impaired as to render its sale
at anything like a profitable figure
Impossible. From experience I have
found that the 'five-tree system' of
planting is best. In this system a tree

"There are too many varieties of
apples being raised in the state of
Washington," he said. "We have over
50 varieties of commercial winter ap
ples, and we should not have over 10
varieties. This condition is caused
by new growers planting the variety
of apple which1 grew best for them In
other parts of the contry, without
taking into consideration the fact that
the growing conditions are totally different."

In citing the postoflice vacancies
which Senators Chamberlain and Lane
will fill, a Washington correspondent
gives figures which show that only
six other postoffices in the state pay
their postmasters larger salaries than
Hood River, the salaries being based
upon the amount of business passing
through the office. Portland pays
$6000, Medford 12800, Salem $3200,
Eugene $2900, Baker and Astoria
$2700 and Hood River $2600.
Albany, although a much larger
ity, pays the same as Hood River.
So also does Pendleton. Ashland pays
$2500 and Corvallis, Grants Pass, Ore
gon City, LaGrande and Roseburg pay
$2500. The Dalles pays $2600, the
same as Hood River.
As Postmaster Lucas was appointed
for a four-year term, his tenure of of
fice does not expire until 1915.
