Messrs. Kearns and Williams, with
their wives drove to Salem and spent
a week looking over tin logan berry
situation. They visited a number o:
big berry growers and it was the opin-
ion of all of them that the logan berry
industry had come to stay. While the

is only temporary because of the ble
price paid last year the people who
hold the product want to get their

The second jury trial was that of
