Lesson from Barrel Men
The people who pack barreled ap
ples in the East very rarely allow
their product to sell on the auction
or on commission, but both these ruin
ous systems are fed by the product
of the Northwest fruit grower and it
Is fair to assume that it will be ever
thus until a harmonioas co-operative
organization is effected which will re
duce the cost of selling, effect a bet
ter distribution and put the fruit into
the hands of the actual consumers
through the most accessible channels
of trade at reasonable prices.
With these objects in view, the nine
directors of the North Pacific Fruit
Distributors closed the conference at
North Yakima and are submitting the
question of signing up the product of
the different districts with the cen
tral organization for handling and al
so for suggestions or recommendations
for improvements in the working plan.
The discussion covered many points
not) mentioned. The proposition was
viewed from many angles and the
board hoped to submit a plan that
would meet the approval of all the
districts but that if any district could
not see its way clear to sign up Its
product that the plan would still be
good for all districts that do Join
and be of incalculable benefit to the
fruit industry of the Northwest.
There will be ample time for a full
and free discussion uf this proposi
tion at and before the date of the
annual meeting of the Hood River

REPORT ON STUDY
In an exhaustive article on apple
tree anthracnose just published in the
biennial crop pest and horticultural
report of the Oregon Experiment Sta
tion Professor Jackson has the fol
lowing to say about observations of
this pest made in this county by him
self and Professor W. II. Lawrence:
The apple tree anthracnose is not
uncommon as a rot of the fruit. This
may be developed in the orchard, es
pecially if the fruit is allowed to hang
late on the trees, or may be developed
as a storage rot on fruit which is per
fectly sound when stored.
Lawrence seems to be the first one
to have recorded this disease as a rot
ou the fruit. He studied it In some
detail, isolated the fungus and pro
duced the disease by inoculation, by
placing spores in drops of water on
the uninjured epidermis. He also us
ed material from decayed apples to
inoculate pear branches with positive
The most obvious line of attack for
the control of this trouble on the fruit
is to control the disease In the orchard
by proper spraying niehods. The di
ease has developed, however, in Borne
cases, in considerable percentage In
orchards in which anthracnose was
not present or present only In very
slight amount, not sufficiently to ac
count for any large percentage of In
fected fruit. This has been observed
both in Hood River and the Wlllara
ettv Valleys. This fact suggests that
a further study of the disease should
be made under these conditions In an
effort to determine the source of in
fection and whether or not the fungus
may occur as a saprophyte under con
ditions not at present discovered.
Where orchards aro only slightly af
reefed with anthracnose, or where It
is considered advisable to spray as a
matter of general orchard practice,
growers are advised to spray once
each year In the fall as soon as pos
sible arrer the fruit Is picked, using
Bordeaux mixture, 6-6 60.
In orchards where the disease Is on
rhe Increase and It Is desired to make
a special effort to prevent any further
spread, growers should spray twice
with Hordeaux mixture, 6-6 50, after
the fruit Is picked. The two appllca
