Want to take this occasion to thank you for the splendid
editorials and news items in your paper concerning the King s
Food Products Company and dehydration, also to compliment
you on your untiring efforts to build up the natural industries
of your community. I . . . - .
Your sincere enthusiasm and appreciation of the Pssi
h;mt in doVivrlratinn are verv eratifyine and as the public
' is beginning to see and understand these possibilities, dehy
dration is growing by leaps and bounds. --. - .-
Fnr vmir infnrmation. I micrht sav that every fruit sec
tion of California is vitally interested in dehydration and
many systems and plants are teing established, all of which
is of .great help to King's, because we have been practically
alone in the field in a large commercial way, and others com
ing into it will help in educating the consuming public and
'there is room in the market for many such institutions. Our
greatest job at the present time is to hold the outstanding
first place in the dehydration industry that we now have, and
as we build to meet the demand, isaiem ana tne community
are coiner to reaD the benefit. -
There are those who scoff at the possibilities of dehy
dration as there have been people who scoffed at every great
endtavor that has ever been put "over. Big mgn pay little
attention to the scoffer while he is knocking and grumbling
on the wayside, the progress of big things inarches right on.
;King's Food Products are firmly established in Salem
and will grow to the point of it being a great factor in the
cnmmiinitv. Kiner's dehydrated fruits and vegetables are be
coming f irmly established in the big consuming markets of
. . . m m 'it t
the country and m aue course 01 lime win De esiaDiisnea in
the important markets of the world. These efforts cannot
be accomplished over night, nor can they be accomplished
without the expenditure of money, but the results from the
efforts and expenditure of money on King's Dehydration is
pyramiding just as fast as the consumer learns to his own
satisfaction the economy, healthfulness and convenience of
the dehydrated products. t
I notice in your editorial of Wednesday morning, the
statements that an additional issue of $1,500,000 of King's
securities is being sold. This is not technically correct, and
as I have not had an opportunity to call on you to give you
the exact statement of this fact, will say . that the -King's
Food Products Company has art authorized capital of $10,
000,000, of which $1,500,000 will be paid up now. The balance
of the authorized capital will be .taken in as the industry
progresses on a conservative basis in years to come. Of this
$1 00,000 now paid up, $500,000 was underwritten by the
American Securities Company and Dundas Martin Company
of Portland and San Francisco. In other words, they guar
anteed the King's Company this amount of money and se
cured them with bankable securities, in which case they have
performed a service of immeasurable value to the industry,
and incidentally to Salem. They are now selling this under
written block; of stock of $500,000, and that is all there is
to the proposition. We personally hope that they can sell
a good quantity of these securities to the people of Salem,
who are loyal to their basic industries. Very truly yours,
. KING'S FOOD PRODUCTS COMPANY,

Food Products Company may go ahead with arrangements
for expansion including the trebling of the output of its Sa

connection therewith . :
And whatever stock the people of this section may buy
will be put into'a going concern; and an expanding one, with
the greatest benefits' accruing to this city and community,

The public bears through the

consider th selection of Mr.
Hoover a "personal arrront."

a stiff back, has pains in muscles,
aches in his joints, or has rheum

and energy and cannot do his
