' A GIGANTIC SPINACH
. " One concern is asking for
of spinach to be supplied, by Salem district growers the com-
ing season- -. r v; ''M::1 ' tvrB - -j ''-"v. -- .
Thi3 for dehydration at the Salem plants T i -And
the King's 'Food Products Company managers say
they have never yet had enough spinach; that it has been
sold out every year within 60 days after the price was au
i nounced. : -;V' -: V:':; w; v- -'r ; ' -r" "f-H'
There is no telling how far, this thing may go. It may
; extend to gigantic proportions- And, because better quality
du to become the world center of a great spinach industry
For the iron in it, and for the vitamines and other
" requisites in dietary schemes, spinach is coming into more
; and more general use riot only in the hospitals but also in the
homes of this country; of the whole world. 'i-; -There
should be no question whatever of the supplying
here by our growers of all the spinadi that the manufacturers
end packers will take, and pay for. 1$ is one of bur best
crops, taking into account tht it may be followed by another
profitable .vegetable crop; or, even a third, on the same land
the same year. -'',.
; It is no longer necessary to say to the majority of the
readers of The Statesman that the eating of spinach freely
is a very? important requisite for health Every kitchen or
tome garden should have some spinach, and two crops should
te raised, and iome of it should be canned at home, or the
commercially canned or dehydrated article should be used
when it cannot be had in the fresh form. 'r ; -
Spinach is nearly as important in the dietary a3, milk;
race cannot be sustained without, milk, nor healthy children
raised; nor old people kept in proper condition. "v -.;'
One of the creatcst arguments in favor of spinach grow
ing commercially, in the Salem district is the fact that the
soring crop furnishes a cash return early in the season when
rr.oney i3 needed for the cultivation of, other crops. And, in
the same way, it add3 materially to the net returns from any
given number of acres of land under cultivation.;; J ,.
The story of the $50,000 strawberry plant, published in
Thev Statesman thb morning, is an interesting one. : : It is of
especial interest in this great strawberry center. W. H. Weeks
and Lester I. Pearmine (Weeks & Pearmine); the big straw
berry plant growers 6f Eoute 8, Salem, have been making in
quiry, and they find that no plants of the $50,000 Strawberry
will be available for the present season. But these enterprising
plant growers are up on their toes in expectancy, and they
v. ill get the .very first plants of the new wonder .berry that
can be1 had. There are hundreds of anxious strawberry
growers in the Sal$m district who wiH be ready tq,
try out the new "king of kings," as soon as they can get sup
plies of plants.' , : 1 - -: ' f-:4 v : "

"By George.! " Mr., i Bryce gave
his desk a resounding bang with
his fist, completely knocking
ever the calendar which he "was
regarding " Intently. -I almost
forgot Vltl 'Tomorrow is: Mar
garet's birthday and I 'haven't
a -r thing for-, her,"' Quickly he
looked at his ; watchl ... "There's
Just 10 xalnutes until the stores
close, : too." . Grabbing hi haV
he hurried out of -the office and
of his famous' aqustie jaunts ;tb
night; some mean aneaK would
flash the Udlngs across the Hel
lespont , and , he would be nabbed
by his enemies Just as he reached
the other side. ' : - ,

And so on and on and on.
For. though 'radio' holds first
place in the romance of achieve
ment today, it is a good thing for
a lot of historic" romances that it
wasn't . discovered before, when It
could and would hare put the ki
bosh on them for keeps. -; ; ; ;
There la no danger that it will
pnt an end to legal and ' proper
elopements,; however. The cost
of formal weddings, is such that
there is a lot ; of parental collu
sion ; about some elopements, and
radio will never be widely invoked
to interfere "with them. There
may be even quite a few husbands
and wivW-who won't ever seek Its
aid to stop eloping spouses. , But
the man who tries , to elope with
somebody else's money, is alreaMy
beginning to find It a mighty seri
ous handicap. , ;
; Radio is doing so much good
in the wdrld that we're all glad
to give up a few romantic esca
pades. If necessary, to enjoy its
benefits. -- After 'all, so long- as
there are human beings In the
world .there will be romance, so
there is .reajly nothing serious to
fear on that score. But a friend
at the writer's elbow declares that
we ought to congratulate Lochiri
var, Leandec. Revere, et al.; on
living when they did. . ;

an . angry red as he noticed the
smiles on the . faces of the passers-by.

held it upright In front of, him.
