The process of handling berries and other fresh fruit by the cold-pack method will be practically revolu tionized by the new process-put into use for the first time this year by the Oregon Growers' Co - operative association. Barreling and subse quent refrigeration of the fresh ber ries have been practiced for some time, but this has been supplanted by the use of five-gallon lacquered cans. . The fruit is placed in cans in fresh condition and sealed, after which they are frozen hard and placed in cold storage. The advantages claimed for this process are that the frunit is cooled in less time, containers are small, which encourages a greater distri bution amoftg consumers of small quantities and because of their size, the cans are less expensive to nan die. It is reported that the association has packed a considerable quantity of berries and other fresh fruit by this process as an experiment. Fruit which has been in cold storage for a considerable- time is said to be in splendid condition. NEW ENGINEER IS NAMED Colonel Schultz Will Succeed Colonel Cavanaugh Here. SEATTLE, Wash., July 28.
