When work, on Oak street Js

thing will be done to the road or
stret on toj of the west hill. Con
ditions there are as bad or worse
than the east hill ever was. One
Salem business ! man remarked
last summer that he had not

Taylor Believes Oregon
Flax Will Beat the World
C. E. Taylor, living two miles
from Aumsville. Is a flax enthu
siast , This spring he visited the
linen mills in the eastern part of
the country. He visited the Bart-
rums in Toronto, the Starlings in
North Tonawanda, and went
through a number of mills. He
also visited the fields an4 looked
at the products.
It is my deliberate judgment,!
said Mr. Taylor to a Statesman re
presentative, "that the flax inj)re
gon this year, poor as it is, is just
as good it not better for linen pur
poses than the best they can raise
in the east. The fact Is that the
.east is not a flax cpunry and neverl
will De. l oniy iouna one uuen
mill running and yet the demand
tpr linen is not supplied, but the
conditions there are wrong. They:
not only do not have the flax but
they do not have the water and
can not care for the retting as it
should be done. '
"I believe the flax in the Wil
lamette valley is 'a- world beater.'
I have looked up the records and
I find that our fiber excels any-;
thing reported. Our crop this
year will be about 50 per cent
but It will not discourage any of
us. This is the first year I have
raised flax but I am going to raise
a lot more next year. It. is the
coming business In the Willamette
valley." ' ;, I :-- ; L; i j
Mr. Taylor purchased the tur
bine wheel out of an old mill In
Labish bottoms and is preparing
to ret flax. He expects to develop
between 300 and 400 horse power
and says that next year he is go
ing to assure his neighbors that
their flax crop will be cared for.
; "It is only a question of time,"!
said Mr. Taylor, ''when more t ban
one mill will be in this valley. We
have the edge on production. We
have the edge on quality and men
of means are going to put their
mills here, more than one. My
neighbors think 1 am a flax 'enthusiast.-
I am. j I spent good
money to find the truth of the flax
situation and my observations con
vinced me that the Willamette val
ley is the opportunity of the world
to make money In raising flax."
