The planting of deep-rooted
fruit trees on the non-irrigable
and sometimes1 thin-soiled hill
lands, and, confining the berry
crops to the lower, possibly irri
gable valley lands, is the solution
of the f rait problem for this part
of the Willamette -valley, accord
ing to County Fruit Inspector S.
II. Van Trump.' '
fThe dry; season has showed this
year, as not tor years past, Mr.
Van Trump says; 'how essential
it is to hare the shallow-rooted
berry cropi where they can gain
the utmost ot moisture.; Irriga
tion would be good wherever it
could be practical, with the water
not ' too expensive to get or to
handle. Cultivation, however, he
holds to be of vital Importance;,
it can be made almost the equival
ent: of irrigation, n the deeper
valley soils. Good cultivation
has saved many a valley fruit
farm that under the old system
of poor beri-y plowing would have
failed almost ' entirely. i
Mr. Van Trump would go deep
ly into the use of dynamite for
preparing the soil for orchard
use.1 OniB or even two sticks of
"giant,! well set 'in the shalyhitr
Mils.-wiJl rive the Up root tor
prunes,-pears and cherries a good
chance to anchor the 'trees. - A
good shattering of the sub-soil
with . dynamite may make the
moat sterile looking fcotfl quite
hospitable to deep-rooting trees.
t Mr. Van Trump urges the plant,
ing of more cherries and ' pears
and pruhea in the hill lands, es
pecially the planting of more sour
cherries,4 ' the Montmorency : being
hla favorite. It is an early bear
er,' much inore nearly pest-proof
than, some of the others, especi
ally the buck varieties, gad al
most .uniformly, commands a high
er price; with an unlimited mar
ket. The growing of more Bart
lett pears on the hill lands, some
of which now , hare loganberries
that are not ever at their best on
such soils, he belieres ia one of
the best chances that the Wil
lamette valley fruit grower has
JA sight.- The rapid development
of Salem as a canning center,
shipping in hundreds or even
thousands of cars of fruit from
other point as much as 300 to
ft 90 miles away, calls for a better
hom supply, with a stabilization
ot prices OB - -a profitable; basis.
Mr. Van Trump believes that the
Bartlett pear, the Montmorency
cherry and the prune, using giant
powder to help la pe ' adequate
preparation ot U ;oiU will be
the great pay crops .of all the
larger fruits; with the berries 6ft
the .lower, flatter lands, and ir
rigated wherever possible, .
-l Walnuts and filberts, however,
he holds to be aa near the ideal
crops tor the lands dVwhich they
are adapted, as any fruits. They
offer ' the chance for a longer
harvest season than . berries, bo
that the farm owner can count
more safely on doing his own har
vesting and not have to depend
on outside labor. The present
berry situation, with o few com
mercial pickers, h Bays' is ;ida
largely to the coming In of so
many small-acreage farmers who,
with their families, used to be
Commercial pickers-- until they
saw that the berries " werej so

ers, -both tbejr and -their - former

the TieliMshoTtacge problem.
" Mr; Van Tramp holds that the
eventual solution for this situa
tion la the planting of a larger
proportion of the later ripening,
longer' harvest reason tree crops
in connection with a modest acre
age of berries, bo that there can
be constant gainful femloy
ment of the farmer's own time as
a harvester an throtigh the sum

crops fit especially well Into an
all-fall harvestand they grow so
finely in the Willamette valley
that to neglect them Is flying in

Kpgotlatlons Sought'
During the day Samuel ; Gomp-
ers, president or the American
Federation of Labor, issued a
statement calling upon the govern
ment to open "direct negotia
tions" between union chiefs and
employing " corporations both In
transportation and coal mining.
and suggesting that the "helpless
and all but defunct railroad labor
board" be set aside in the matter.
Senators Cummins, Watson and
Kellogg during their visit to the
White House,' told' the president
they had found ;the BenlorityHsi
sues the chief obstacle to settle
ment of the railroad strike, but
also, indicated 'that the leaders of
the striking' shopmen' were also
demanding that a new federal
board of mediation be set up to
consider transportation-labor con-
troversies; - vr
Railroad ' 'executives, the sena
tors reported would not reinstate
returning shopmen in the service
positions they formerly held, even
should the strike be called off,
because they claimed that a total
of nearly 240,000 men had been
employed to till the places of 00
000 strikers. These new men, it
was said, had been promised per
manent employment tf they devel
oped efficiency. "; '

These are the two extremes of
Marlon county high school costs,
so far as reported; there is one
school yet to come fn, that at St
Paul. The figures range thus,
tor the other schools besides the
two mentioned :
Woodburn, 51.7 cents per day,
or $93.06 a year.
, Salem, 54.3 cents per day, or
J $97.74 per yean ........
Turner, 52.1 cents per day, or
193.78 per year. -
Stay ton, 56.7 cents per day, or
$102.03 per year.
eotta Mills, -58.6 cents per day
or. $105.48 per'year. '
fs (Jefferson, 60,3 cents per day,
tyr $108.54 per year, and Hubbard
cents per . day or $134.82
Some of these figures do not
4 exactly tally with, figures recent
ly published, as in the Salem dis
trict, but in this computation it
4 is assumed that all were on a
"r .JTl iZ .
la -be year, which has not
f U It-time basis with 180 school
always been exactly the -case.
Sllverton has one of the espe
cially good high schools of the
county; Its cost is much lower
thatt the nearest competitor. This
may mean especially good man
agement, or the good fortune of
a good contributing territory that
brings in numbers of pupils for
regular instead of more closely
specialized work.' The Woodburn
school, second in the list for
economy of operation, has an ex
cellent optional course, with a
teachers' training department and
one or two other fine specialties.
At v that, however, , the cost has
been very moderated It has been
figured, ; however, that such a
consolidation ofliigh school work
as was- proposed during the year
for;,: Woodburn r should cut the
pVesent average cost away lower
than the present figures
The Stay ton school has the
reputation of "being? one of the
best for a towaof it size of
airy in the valley. AX It " has been
especially attractive to ' the am
bitious boys and girls, because
of its interest In Interscholastic
rivalries of all kinds; the 5 pro
portion of high school pnpils to
the grade school attendance is
said to be unique In. Oregon high
school annals. With all this,
however, the costs have been
kept well within. - bounds. Sa
lem, with its 1200 high school
students, has a departmentalized
scnool tnat offers almost a uni
versity range of choice In Its
courses. '. , ';.'.'."' " "
These figures are carefully
checked up, Jn. compliance3 with
the state high school tuition law.
that pays from the general fund
the tuition In some regularly es
tablished high school district,' lot
the students residing outside Of
(high - school districts. - It rests
with the student to . select his
school;' in Salem last year there
were pupils from a dozen coun
ties in Oregon, whose tuition was
paid through the public funds,
since they had no high school in
their home districts. -
:l It has" been estimated by the
county school officers that in
general It 1 would be a large sav
ing in cost and a far greater gala
in efficiency to establish more
consolidated districts and balid
up big enough schools to give the
range of " work demanded; While
the . Individual instruction given
by the one or two teachers In the
smalt school, along the. particular
J?becialties - of these -teachers,
may be better than the "larger
class Instruction - in -the" big
school, there 4s only one lren
clad set of .InstnrcUon that any
specialist can giro at htsur tier
best, and the psplU who want
something else are tlmply out of
luck. TThe large school, with the
wide range of choice -tof!ered.i 'Is
held to be Infinltelr the better
plan for educating. Some curi
ous class records In Salem and
Woodbnrn, where there" are some
fine specialties that attract stud
ents from a long ways, indicate
how much stronger Is the appeal
to both boys and -girls to carry
on their high school work," It
they can get what they want. In
stead of quitting in disgust at the
compulsory eighth grade. Only
the big school can go far enough
in . specialization to , hold these
restless ones ta sch.oot , ,

to be. attempted this year, In the
