Growers of apples Hti western
Oregon should feel greatly en
couraged orer the general favor

the prospecst of a big crop this
coming season.
And while the indication! are
for a good crop In Oregon, re
ports from the east show consid
erable damage from frost, espec
ially in Michigan and the Ozard
apple section of Missouri, Arkan
sas and also Oklahoma.
IUrord Crop Kspected
A general agricultural report
"Growers of apples in the north
west anticipate a record crop for
1921. If there is no extremely
cold weather up to the middle of
April, the crop tehould run to
large, sizes and be of a fine qual
C. I. Lewis, of the Oregon
Growers Cooperative association
with 15 years experience as a
horticulturist in Oregon, says
prospects now are for a good crop
of apples, as it generally happens
that a good crop follows a bad
one. And this will be especially
true this year as apple trees have
largely recovered from the freeze
of December, 1919, and the heavy
rams or the past winter have glv
en additional vitality to the trees.
Rata Reduction .ex-onnary
The 1920 crop of apples in Or
egon was 4,280,872 bushels and
the government figures the aver
age value a bushel was 75 cents.
Also that the average yield was
88 bushels an acre, and that on
this average basis, the returns to
the growers was about $66 an
The charges for freight alone
of a box of apples shipped from
Oregon to New York ts J 8 cents
a box, and the Oregon 2rowers
cooperative association is working
with other northwestern and Cal
ifornia organizations to secure a
reduction in rates.

PORTLAND, i-pril ,r. Bidd
ding was brisk at the first session
of the state highway commission's
monthly meeting today. Not only
were there numerous bld for the
,1obs considered today, bttt the
bids were close to estimates and
in Borne instances below the fig
ures of the state engineer. Rids
opened Inclded two paving Jobs,
two grading jobs, two surfacing
Jobs and four bridges.
Tomorrow the commission will
open bids for paring 9.8 miles of
the Pacific highway in Lane coun
ty, on the Walker-Goshen ec
tion. Four other projects also
will he considered tomorrow.
County Judge Robinson headed
a delegation from Polk county
to ask that the state highway
north of RIckreall go over Clark
hill Instead of around It. While
no action was taken, the com
missioners declared that it is the
policy to cat out all grades pos
sible on main highways.

oifered to iatch the state 50-50
on macadamizing this highway.
The commission recently selected
this north road for the etate high
way between Albany and; Leba
non. At that time the county of
fered to pay one-half of the cost
of macadamizing this road, but
according to L. O. Lewelling of
Albany, spokesman for the dele
gation, the county will not be
able to meet its share. -
Lewelllng said that the prop
erty owners along this road were
willing to form a highway district
and that they would match the
state's funds if the county was
unable to do bo. This tentative
offer was accepted by the com
mission. i
Forest Grove received the tid
ings that 606 feet of road on the
highway within the city limits
will be paved if the city will bear
cne-half of tha cost. This le
what they offered to do.
A letter was received by the
commission from the Multnomah
commissioners stating that the
1922 county budget will contain
an appropriation of 585,000 to
apply on the cost of the Mount
Hood loop road. This is to match
the state's appropriation of . . i
