Sent, Past Week'
Ii. ('. Patilus. general manager
oi th" Oregon Growers Co-operative
association, announces that
the price of prunes has been ad
vauactid by the association.
S a- 4o.5'j, of which the associa
tion holds mo.U of the unsold
stock in the northwest, is now be
ing sold at nine cents a pound,
packed in 25-pound boxes f.o.b.,
the coast and some sales have
been made in advance of this
Information was received a few
days ago that two competitors of
t tie association v.ere selling 4b
5.0s at from 6-1-2 to 7 1-2 cents a
pound. Brokers of the associa
tion were telegraphed instructions
to pass up business at such
prices, especially since the asso
ciation held most of the unsold
stocks of 40-50s in the northwest.
Mr. Paulus says efforts are be
ing made by the association to
strengthen prices on smaller sizes
of prunes, advancing 50-60s and
fio-'Os one cent a pound and
smaller sizes approximately half a
cent a pound.
As to prune stocks in California,
it is reported that the 90-100
size has almost been cleaned up
and that during the past month
more than 20,000,000 pounds
have been shipped from Califor
nia coast stocks.
Regarding the sales of the Ore
gon Growers' Co-operative associ
ation. Mr. Paulus said that dur
ing the past week the association
had shipped a quarter of a million
pounds of prunes.
No two reports agree as to the
condition of the prune crop in
western Oregon. Some are in
clined to feel that damage has
been done, while others after ex
amination of their orchrds, report
conditions justify a normal crop.
It is thougVt that a true estimate
of the prune crop cannot accurate
ly le made for a week or ten days.
According to the government's
estimate, the prune crop of Ma
rion county last year was 8.28t).
