SALEM'S GREAT STRAWBERRY INDUSTRY
' More strawberries are canned in Salem than in all the
i re3t of the states of Oregon, Washington and California
I, Marion is the leading strawberry county in Oregon
And Polk county is next
. And practically all the strawberries of these two coun
;, ties are marketed in Salem, besides quantities from parts of
Yamhill Benton, Lina and Clackamas counties.
There are two big problems in the strawberry industry
First; the hunt for the right varieties
Second, the .matter of irrigation.
j It i3 likely that the solving of the second problem will go
lar in the solving of the first; that is, that the general adop
! ion of irrigation by our strawberry growers wilt bring up
' the varieties already-tried-out here so that they will serve
.: all the purposes of strawberry industry as an industry, in
! its various randficat'i$, i . " ( '
. .That seems likelyl'jy ; X: v ;
. -''W?rH. Weeks, the strawberry plant king of this district,
says h will employ irrigation in all his growing in the;; future.
He tried it out withjpuccess last year,;:, j , , s
i-i vWtP Allen, the dean of the industry here, and the mant
kwhr.has donS more ffrah any other in introducing the Trebla"
and .the No; 121 varieties says in his concluding paragraph
that'hc believes Irrigation 'will solve the problems of the can-
; ners. Every" one interested at all in this city or this district
I should read this concluding paragraph and tha whole of the
illuminating article of - Mr. Allen. - - '" ! ;
i ' He is no boomer; he points out the pitfalls; and his con
1 ?lusionV are sound. He is no tyro. He knows every angle of
i the industry, frcfen experience, attended by bitter los3 as well
as smiling success '
Salem Is already the strawberry city of this coast; the
Center of , the greatest strawberry industry in the wesern
t country-. " -I-" v:
, But what has been accomplished is only a marker for
i what may be done, by practicing all the be3t methods known
, to the industry and which may be found out by experiments.
WlthJ the. advantages already gained, Salem ought to become
; ,the greatest strawberry city in the whole wide world, and
"thai in the. not distant future; and,' the writer believes this
. .winsome topass. .,; :
should make the cartons here. All the boxes should be made
here. The labels might be made here. The expansion of our
great fruit industry will be limited to some extent by the
growth of Salem. It will be more and more a question ohelp
in harvesting and packing times. The King s people are
working 500 or more people now, in dehydrating and canning
apples. The Starr cannery is working a considerable-force
in canning apples. There is a good deal of other work going
on in the fruit concerns. But there will be a considerable
season in late January to May in which there will le a j?oxl
deal of idleness here. The prudent people of Salem must find
a way to avoid any idleness at all, at any season. And this
can be done.

When she came to the corner
