Strawberries Slow to Shape
Up For Treatment, But
SPINACH COMING SOON
Buyers and Producers Not
.Yet in Agreement on
Question of Prices
Spotted weather, that wags its
tail and smiles one minute and
then growls and shows its cold
teeth the next, is responsible for
the slow development of the
strawberry crop. Some of the
berries are already ripe, but they
are almost loo few for the pick
ing crews to attack in the fields.
From present appearances, there
will not be many berries picked
Local canneries, however, are
ready for tbem when they do ap
pear. The strawberries will be
the first, except perhaps the
gooseberries, and there are hard
ly enough of these to make a se
rious cannery operation. The
gooseberries, too, will stand for
several days, if necessary, to let
the strawberries out of the way
in case they should begin to ripen
Packers in Shae.
The Producers' Canning &
Packing Company plant is ready
to receive strawberries from the
member patrons. They will em
ploy 100 hands at the height of
the season. The Hunt Brothers'
factory has been put in complete
order, and is understood to be
ready to open for strawberries as
soon as the berries come in fast
enough to supply steady work.
They expect to give tlwir old em
ployes the chance of holding their
old jobs when work begins.
The Oregon Packing company
has given its plant a thorough go
ing ver, and was never in better
condition for a good run.
The Salem Kings' company does
not handle strawberries, which
have not yet proved adaptable to
the dehydration treatment, so the
plant, while it is being overhauled
and added to in many ways, will
not have anything to work on foi
some days. Spinach, which is ex
pected to be ready for treatment
about June 10, will be tbe first
Prices Still Uncertain
Prices, wbicb are as vital for
the canners as for the growers,
have not yet been made public.
If there is any agreement any

or the buyers, about what is to be
paid, it has not been made pub

cents for raspberries, indicate?
th,at there is no sign of agreement

any, must rest with the buyerf
