Statement Relative to Build
ing for Revival Made By'
The following statement rela
tive to the tabernacle was made
Tuesday night by W. C. Wlnslow,
chairman ol 'the finance commit
tee: ' t ; -. y ; - ' - ' : -v
"So many questions nave Jtieen
rried regarding the building of the
Uabernacle for the completion of
4the Demareat eTangelistlc, imeei-
.g3 that I deem-it adTisable to
.make a statement regarding the
t natter. - i "
"The first meeting was held in
,,he armory and hundreds of peo
ple were turned away. Then for
i few nights it was necessary to
hold the meetings in the First
.'ethodist church and its capacity
va3 insufficient to accommodate
hose desiring to attend. On Fri
day night the - meeting was again

'ha afternoon and evening, hun
iJreuS were turned away and the
p rmory was crowded to such an
ixlent that it was impossible to
rlo personal work or to move
. round in the auditorium there
fore, at the conclusion of the meet
ing Sunday evening. It was deter
mined to build a tabernacle la
' vHch to conclude the meetings.

armory when taxed to its utmost

would accommodate only about
one-half of the membership of the
churches united in this campaign,
leaving no room for outsiders.
and with the increase in attend
ance, which should naturally fol
low the results thus far obtained,
it is believed by those in closest
touch with the meetings, that the
capacity of the tabernacle vwi.l
eoon be overtaxed. Under all the
circumstances the best that can be
done now is to build a tabernacle
with a seating capacity of 4500, '
"It is estimated that there aro
19,000 people in the city of Salcir
who are not members , of any
church. It is to these that Mrs.
D-marest desires to deliver her
message. If tne seating capacity
of the armory is to be taken al
most entirely by church-going peo-
lle. it becomes apparent that the
evangelist can not reach those
whom she most desires to reach.
Ms. Demarest cannot be expected
to reach, with her powerful mes
sage, those who find it impossible
to get seats and who are crowded
away, because of the desire c' i
those who are vitally Interested in
he campaign to furnish seats aad
room for those who desire to at
tend the movement for a taber
nacle has been launched. The rec-
oi d of Mrs. Demarest in other
towns than Salem indicates th&t
she will very likely fill whatever
meeting place is provided for her,
for. in many cases, she has filled
to capacity audltorrums and tab
ernacles with much larger seating
capacity than the tabernacle to be
constructed at Salem.
"Incidentally some questions are
being asked regarding the ex
pense of this tabernacle. I feel
that my statement made at the
armory last; Sunday evening was
somewhat misunderstood. Tb to-
tu'eost of the tabernacle will be
approximately $2200 front whirh
It will be possible to realize in th-s
silvago of the materials used ap
proximately $600, thus reducing
the net cost to about $W00 There
wl.l be some saving in the rent of
the armory and ft is conservatively
estimated that a total budget of
$4000 should cover the entire ex
pense of the campaign up to the
Uii-e of the free-will offering.' to
Mi. and Mrs. Demarest."
.To some this may seem like con
siderable moneybut to those whe
are familiar with the ordinary cost
of campaigns of similar character
and magnitude this amount seems
trifling and small in. deed.; Al
lowing for a liberal free-will offer
lug to Mr. and Mrs. Demarest, the
total cost of the entire campaign
for the city of Salem should not
exceed from1 $10,000 to $12,000.
- "It should further be explained
that with the building of the tab
ernacle the meetings will be pro
longed and that a five weeks'
campaign will be held. : It is con
fidently believed by those in close
touch with the situation, that tr.
results to be obtained will repay
the expenditure many fold. If
the expense of the campaign could
be compared with the expense of
the campaign had Billy Sunday
len brought to Salem, it will at
ence bo recognized that ' the am
ount of the expenditure here con
templated is insignificant when
compared' with the cost of a Sun
"Some people criticize such a
campaign because it takes . a lot
of money out of town. . In the
first pla?e,' a large portion of the
money expended is not taken put
of town. In the "second place, if
it were Barnum k. Bailey pr' Ring
ling Brothers, we anticipate that
the folks would forget this ele
ment. . We trust that the people
of Salem, keeping, in mind' the re
sults to be obtained, and the per
manent good to our; community,
will give this movement their sin
cere, whole-hearteji 'cooperation.!

All Interests -Working To

west Prune Federation
PORTLAND, Or., April 23.
First steps have been taken look
ing, toward the formation of the
Northwest Prune Federation, as
the central sales agency for all
northwest dried prunes, organized
for the purpose of standardizing
and advertising and marketing not
less, than 70 per cent of the dried
prunes of Oregon and Clarke coun
ty. Wash., which would represent
a minimum tonnage of about 35,-
000,000 pounds of dried prunes,
based on a three-year average of
This, plan for an all-northwest
prune marketing organization has
been put forward as the immediate
result of three recent meetings
held by the marketing department
of -the Portland Chamber of Com
merce, and attended by" directors
of the Oregon Growers Coopera
tive' Prune association, by repre
sentatives of ' the marketing de
partment of the Portland Cham
ber of Commerce and the market
ing department of Oregon Agri
cultural college, and representa
tives from the Eugene Fruit Grow
ers association, the Dundee Fruit
Growers' and Packers,, the Wash
ington Cooperative Prune Grower's
the Butte Falls Prune Growers as
sociation, the Springbrook Cooper
ative Prune Growers, and by all
the "members of the original, com
mittee of nine which have ' been
working for months toward the
formation of such an all-inclusive
prune marketing plan.
Such a tentative plan for the
formation of the Northwest Prune
Federation, in order to become
effective, assumes that not less
than 70 per cent of the prune
growers of western Oregon and
western Washington first must
join either the Oregon Growers
Cooperative Prune association, or
some definite local-unit prune
growers association. : Then it is
expected that these different as
sociations will federate Into the
all-inclusive Northwest Prune
federation. The Individual grow
ers themselves will decide which of
the tWjp different types, of organi
zation they will foster and4 sup
port in their own community. :But
the success of the plan' demands
that not lesa than 70 per cent of
all the prune growers must join
either the Oregon .Growers or a
Much already has been accom
plished toward the formation of
the Northwest Prune Federation.
The Washington Cooperative
Prune Growers, which packed 8,
000,000 pounds of prunes last
year and expects to control not
less than 80 per cent of the 1924
crop of prunes of ! the Vancouver
district., already is pledged to the
support of such a joint marketing
exchange. , : v
, The support for such a plan
also has been assured by the Eu
gene Fruit Growers which handled
about 1.000,000 pounds of prunes
last year; by the .Dundee Fruit
Growers and Packers, which con
trolls about 1.500,000 pounds, and
by the Butte Falls Prune Growers
association with about 500,000
pounds. Also, a new local unit
of prune growers pledged to a cen
tral selling agency has been or
ganized recently at Springbrook.

been taken toward the formation
or a strong local unit in the Dallas
district ' i ' .
It is hoped, if possible, to Secure
a minimum sign-up of. not less
than 70 per cent of the prune
growers of the northwest, and to
complete the organization of the
