FISHING SEASON OPENS
FULLY 1500 GILLNET BOATS ARE
ARB OPERATING FIRST DAT.
Appeal Will Be Made far Adjustment
ef Prices to Be Paid for Salrnon
During the Season.
ASTORIA, Or.. May 1. (Special.)
The Spring fishing season opened on
the Columbia River at noon today and
fully 1500 gillnet boats are operating,
many more than was expected. Some
of these, as usual on the opening day,
made good hauls this afternoon, while
others got almost nothing, but two or
three days must elapse before the
amount of fish In tha river can be estimated.
The glllnetters are to make an ap
peal for an adjustment in the prices to
be paid for raw salmon during the sea
son. That was decided at a largely
attended meeting last evening.
The consensus of opinion as ex
pressed by those present was that
while the price of 114 cents a pound
for chinook salmon as fixed by Food
Administrator Ayer Is not satisfactory.
it is the duty of the fishermen as loyal
American citizens to do nothing which
will interfere with the food produc
Consequently the fishermen voted al
most unanimously to put their gear in
the water and crowd the fishing op
erations as rapidly as possible and at
tbe same time make an appeal to Ad
ministrator Ayer for a readjustment of
ha prices. If he will not grant tbe
request an appeal will then be made
