COST OF DELIVERIES
HELPS BOOST PRICE
Wholesale Dairy Dealers Meet
to Devise Methods of Cut
ting Down Expense.
ADVANCE ORDERS SOLUTION
Discussion Results in Plan to Seek
Co-operatJon of Jobbers, Retailers
and Consumers to Prevent
Further Increase In Prices.
TTTiolesale dalrr supply dealers of
Portland were called Into conference
yesterday by Federal Food Administra
tor W. B. Ayer for the purpose of de
vising methods of cutting down sur
plus deliveries to retailers and elimi
nating other wasteful practices which
contribute to the high cost of butter,
milk and esrgrs.
At the conclusion of a discussion of
the various problems affecting distri
bution of dairy supplies locally the
wholesalers promised their hearty co
operation and told Mr. Ayer they will
take immediate steps to bring all dairy
supply Jobbers together in an effort
to obtain co-operation also of the re
tailers and of the public to the end
that distribution costs may be cut
down and relief afforded the consumer
from the constantly mounting prices of
milk, butter and eggs.
Duplication Is Held Waste.
"Where there Is an added cost due
to surplus deliveries on any one dairy
product," said Mr. Ayer after the con
ference, "this expense la necessarily
spread over the whole stock of the
dealer, and Is passed on to the retailer,
who, in turn, passes it on to the con
sumer. There are many retailers who
do not estimate their needs closely and
who call for extra delivery, particu
larly of butter and milk, to meet the
demands of customers during the day.
These extra deliveries are an added
expense to the wholesaler, who spreads
the cost over his whole stock and
passes It back, the consumer ultimately
paying the bill.
"Co-operation, of retailers and the
public Is needed to eliminate thJs
wasteful practice. Retailers should
estimate their needs for each day more
closely and. In order that they may do
bo, their patrons should; also carefully
estimate their needs and follow the
practice of getting their orders in
early, or the day before. This Is espe
cially urgent iru the case of milk.
Consumers Must Co-operate.
"Retailers of milk often order more
than their trade needs and then turn
back the surplus to the dairymen for
rebate. Milk thus turned back repre
sents a heavy loss to the dairyman, and
constitutes an important Item in his
"If radical advances in the prices of
dairy products are to be forestalled It
will come about only through co-operation
of the consumer, who must fig
ure bis needs in advance, and give In
to his grocer a standing order, or at
least order early each day. Surplus
deliveries should be cut down substan
tially, and the dairymen should abso
lutely refuse to take back unsold) milk."
FISH POPULARITY GROWS
Sirs. J. D. Spencer Illustrates New
Methods of Preparing Sea. Foods.
All varieties of edible fish prepared
in the most delectable ways known are
becoming a popular dish in many Port
land homes since the first of a series

auspices of the municipal market.
Monday Mrs. Spencer gave In
structions In the preparations of fillet
of carp. First she removed the back
bone and then skinned the fish, remov
ing all of the bones and cutting Into
medium-sized pieces or regular small
steaks. Then the pieces were dipped
into salted milk. Into which the Juice
of an onion bad been grated. They
were then rolled in very fine bread
crumbs. These may be either broiled
or baked In a very hot oven. The carp
fillet was served with oyster sauce or
white sauce, to which oysters had been
added. The oysters were first par
boiled or cooked until their edges
curled In the oyster liquor.
Mackerel was stuffed with well
seasoned bread stuffing and baked.
being first garnished with lemon and
parsley and sewed up. Mrs. Spencer
did not cut the head and tail from the
fish, but removed the backbone.

SMILE NEEDED, SAYS JUDGE
Joking Threat to Kill Must Not Be
"Any fellow who threatens to kill
another In a joking manner has to nave
a mighty broad smile on his face when
he makes such a threat." counseled
District Judge Dayton yesterday In
holding J. W. Avis to the grand Jury
on a complaint charging him with
threatening to kill Alma B. KendalL
Avis admitted on the witness stand
that he probably made threats against
the Kendall woman, but declared he
had done so in a Joking manner.
Judge Dayton further ordered the
two to be held for Investigation by the
Federal officials on the statement of
Avis that he had come to Portland from
Sacramento with the Kendall woman.
He alleges she paid his fare to Port
hill County, to Salem and other Marlon
County towns. The existence of such a
conspiracy has been strongly suspected
sinoe the mysterious burning of a grain
elevator at Carlton last Sunday.
Assistant United States Attorney
Rankin admitted yesterday that Fed
eral authorities were conducting an in
vestigation as a result of the Carlton
fire, but he said there bad been no de
velopments to data
