A FIFTH OF OUR PEOPLE DEPEND
ON THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY
If the automotive industry were taken
away from Salem, this would be a dull
town ;f" - j: .. ":
For on that industry about afif th of our
25,000 people in the city and its suburbs
depend fori their living, j
But it will never be taken away
On the contrary, it will grow. It will
never stop growing. ; I
In time, j the airplane industry will be
added; but for a long," long time, if not
forever, most people will remain .and do
business on terra firma using the ever
increasing : mileage of paved Jiighways
centering in Salem. i, ; - i
You will be surprised at the rapid
growth of .the automotive industry in and
about Salem. f . , r : ,
Its cumulative growth will be a continu
ing marvel.; There was steady growth
last year. jN

LIME FOR OREGON
Commenting orj a New Pam
phlet Issued by South
ern Pacific Company
The Southern j pacific company
has issued an interesting little
pamphlet on the 'subject of lime
rock for use on -western Oregon
soils. It Is all the, more interest
ing because it deals sparingly in
theory and bears; down hard on ex
perience. It quotes soil experts to
the effect that crop production can
be- increased ' from' 25 to 50 per
cent by application of pulverized
lime rock and asserts that from
40.000 to BO.OOoltons of lime
should be used annually on the
soils of western Oregon, whereas
the present annual average is only
about 2.000 tons;; but the remain
der of the pamphjet is devoted to
extracts from letters from users of
lime. - pi
One of these letters is from the
E. Clemens Horst Company, of In
dependence, whose hop1 yard near
Eola is one of the; largest in Amer
ica. H. X. Ord, the manager says;
"The cars of J lime that we
bought, were for j our own use as
fertilizer and we! applied them all
on our own ground. We paid 1 4 a
ton f. o. b. cars Gold Hill. Our
production was increased 25 per
cent by the use pt this lime and
we consider it ; a most profitable
investment because lime is the
best fertilizer for? our soil. -The
rock was of the c proper quality,
clean and sufficiently pulverized
BACON AND LARD
to be applied directly to the soli,
and we received, our benefit this
year.. We would have used sev
eral hundred tons more lime this
year if we had been able to apply
it to the land at the proper time."
Another well known grower who
contributes an opinion is Gideon
Stolz, of Salem, who tells of the
results obtained; from lime applied
tq orchard land! He gays: j
. 'Ipurchased a thirty-ton car of
ground lime rock from the state
lime board, Gold Hill. The board
makes a charge of a ton, loose
in the car, minimum car thirty
tons. - :. ' ' ,! '. I
i -f . ; ; - I
"l base my experience of the!
i - . I
use of lime on! prune and cherry
trees on tests made for a period of
five years, applying a mixture of
ground lime rock and hydrated
lime. I consider lime a good in!
vestment for trees, especially cheri
ry trees. The! thirty-ton car rej
f erred to I had; spread over twent
ty acres of my forty acres of nlne4
year-old prune orchard with a land
plaster spreader. , I expecUo use
another car next year. 1 - c
Here is an extract from a letter
from George E, Dix, of Marshfield,
whose experience with lime has
had. to do witty grain crops and?
pasture. He says: ,
. "From one year's; observation,' I
consider it was k profitable invest
ment to use lime on my land. Last
October, I applied two tons to the
acre on sandy loam soil before
seeding with oajts, clover was knee
high at time of cutting. I esti
mate the lime increased these
crops twenty-fiye per cent and it
has left me with a wonderful
green pasture for this fall's graz
ing." :-..,. V ,
i ' '-:! I ; .,. .
; Lime is needed on western Ore
gon soils because of their acid con
dition. ' Thi3 is not a limestone
country, and the water is wholly
"soft." Those; who have' come
here from the middle west, where
the water is heavily impregnated
with lime, will undertand the dif
ference. Because of our heavy
winter rainfall, there Is much
leaching out' of the lime content
as cultivation proceeds. . . ! !
The subject of lime application
to Oregon soils has been consider
ed so important that the state lias
established a lime plant at Gold
Hill,; which provides " pulverised
lime rock at a rate of $4 per ton
in bulk at the plant. The freight
rate per ton from Gold Hill to Sa
lem in carload lots is $1.90, mak
ing the-cost $5.90 per ton here.
Average practice so far has been
to apply about two tons per acre.
; Application of lime to the soil
ought to receive more attention
than It has had in the past, ft is
not to be advised that land owners
should lime' their entire holdings,
but they should, at least experi
ment with it on small plots. ,L In
creased production from the soil
means lower cost of production,
and lower cost of production is one
of the great agricultural needs.';

DID YOU KNOW That Salem is an important! center of the (
automotive industry that her central position in the' Wil-j
' Lunette valley, with a system
in every direction, brings the trade in every line here, from
hew and second hand cars and tractors to parts and repairs j
that j the collection here of the millions of dollars annually
in license fees and gasoline taxes, and the state automobile
machinery plant, and the county plant, and the State High-1
jvay J department, and the big oil and gasoline companies!
operating here, give employment to large forces, which are
' being constantly increased; that the stage and truck j lines;
are rapidly adding to their forces here, rand that the whole
automotive industry centered here is expanding rapidly
and steadily, giving to this city a constantly greater prestige;
. in this field, and that the future gives great promise inj
every branch of this great and fast developing industry?
' OF POULTDY PLANT
Some Advice in this Field
Offered for the Beginners
in the Industry
' There is a discussion of sites
and buildings for poultry plants,
especially for beginners. In last
Sunday's Issue of the Los Angeles
Times. Following are substan
tially the conclusions, . and they
are' applicable here in the Salem
In the selection of a site and
the laying out of a poultry plant
there are a great many factors
which must be duly considered if
the poultryman expects to attain
any great degree of success. Chief
of these, perhaps, is the consider
ation of the health of the flock,
and the efficiency with which the
plant can be handled to show
economy of j production. Needless
to say, the site selected should
have excellent drainage as a guar
antee against- damp quarters.
While a hilly or rolling piece of
land offers! good drainage condi
tions, fairly level land can : be
drained equally as well. Plenty
of good soil for the growing of
greens is necessary in the well
regulated plant, as it does not
generally pay to buy; this part of
the! ration, j
In selecting the type of poultry
house to build, the poultryman
has almost as wide a variety of
plans to choose from as the home
builder who is looking for the
last word In modern bungalows.
Therefore, to set up one style of
house as the most ideal, would be
like advocating one breed or per
haps one variety of poultry for
everyone engaged in the Industry.
The builder of a poultry house,
like the builder of the. bungalow,
almost 'invariably discovers after
the building is 1 completed that
some Improvement might be add
ed.' In other words, 'the construc
tion of a poultry house, like the
selection of a breed, is a matter
of taste which must be decided by
each Individual poultryman. To
be sure, the beginner should be
guided to a large extent by the ex
perience of others Who have made
Esuccess in a practical way. To
be practical, the house should not
be ! too expensive if a good profit

An Independent Organisation
; 1403 North Front, Salem
of paved highways radiating:
is expected.1 On the other hand,
It is not advisable to build too
cheaply, especially so if perman
ency is considered an asset. Many
poultrymen r have ; made a good
profit in the business of building
cheap and unattractive houses,
centering: their attention more on
the selection '-of good stock. From
a cold-blooded . business stand
point, the poultryman who houses
his nock at a cost of, say 50 cents
per bird, is in' a better position to
cash in on his investment than the
poultryman j who pays $4 per bird
for their quarters, provided the
cheaper house ' properly shelters
the birds and Is kept free from
vermin. ' The ; overhead, which: in
each instance should be I charged
to the flock, would quite naturally
leave more; net profit to the one
who has less ; capital invested! in
construction of poultry houses.
There" is; another angle to the
situation, however, that should! be
considered.fi Almost every poul
tryman has; bis home located near
his poultry plant, and in the ma
jority o( cases, the owner builds
his plant so that it will be in keep
ing with! Instead, of casting reflec
tions 6h his own "dwelling.
After all is: said and written on
the subject of poultry-house con
struction, the poultryman is the
one who must decide on. the cost
of the plant. The main! point' he
should consider is to see that the
houses are ! made comfortable I for
the birds, and easily accessible for
the attendant, which convenience
will be an; economy of time con
sumed in keeping it clean. In the
ordinary commercial flock, :the
style of poultry house most used
Is the long stationary house,: or
the intensive system adapted, to
large flocks. ; While this central
ized system offers a saving of
steps, there is greater danger from
fire or diseasethan where the col
ony house is used. By the colony

these hp lards, however, the aver

The rank and file of Pacific
coast poultrymenare quite unani
mous in selecting the ; open front
or semi-open front type of house
as more nearly meeting the re
quirements of the flock.
Whether the poultry house be
of the shed type, the combination,
the gable, the monitor, the semi
monitor, or "A" shaped type, it
makes little difference if the type
chosen brings results, for in the
