THE FUTURE OF THE LOGANBERRY
tk cttocTrinn ? tint informed as to how the Phez Com-
. ) "V. -'"-'" . A it- a. S. 1
pany is succeeding in selling its preierrea siock inai b iu
been offering - .
- Puf flmro i nnp thinsr certain
a i And that is, that the great loganberry industry will have
to aepena ior us greatest uevewiuucin ouu -
marketing of the product in the juice form
" And, in case there is a bumper crop in 1921, the caji
Iteries and the other users will not be able to take care of all
the surplus, unassisted by the juice users in full operation
j And in 1922 and thereafter if the juice plants are not
in full operation there will surely be a large surplus that will
cither go to waste on the vines or be sold at very low prices.
This is the opinion not alone of this writer; it was
voiced yesterday in the presence of this writer by a man the
mention of whose name and connection would carry convic
tion to any one at all posted on the situation. ,
A considerable new acreage'of loganberries in the Salem
district will come into bearing next year
And a very much larger new acreage in 1922.
' There is literally millions in the loganberry industry for
this district I ! .
r U Millions annually
If everv Dossible care is taken of the industry. r
' The canneries and the jam and jelly plants and the de
hydration and. cold pack concerns shipping loganberries can
not alone take care of the crops that are coming on in future
And could not find a market for all the surplus if they
could get then! all in shape for marketing. . . .
So the rapid growth of Salem and the highest prosperity
of the surrounding country are very closely bound up with
the fortunes of the Phez Company; and The Statesman be
lieves that the growers of the Salem, district and the people
of Salem could afford to join in taking all the preferred stock

(To the Editor.) -What is the
ruatter with the prune growers of
Oregon? ' The other day I went
Into the 'table supply store here
and asked for some Italian prunes.
They showed me feme 40-30 and
I asked what they were. The
clerk answered rather chestily
that they were California Santa
Clara French prunes and the price
was 40 cents a pound. I asked
him if he did not have some 20-
0 Oregon Italian prunes and he
answered In a rather disgusted
manner, "No." sir; they are not
good enough for our trade."
Having stopped at the Hotel
Portland years ago, when that
hotel put up prunes, four of
