i Special to The Statesman). The
management of the Silverton Food
Products company reports ' that it
Is very well , satisfied with the
first season of the company-as a
cooperative 1 concern. , John C.
Goperud, president of the com
pany, reports that because of wea
ther, conditions the pack was cot
3 largo as had been anticipated
but that otherwise ereryone con
cerned : seemed ' very well pleased
with the outcome and that the
management hoped to Increase the
oatput considerably next season.
'X fifty; per: cent increase in the
strawberry acreage in-the Silver
ton vicinity assures the company
of a much larger strawberry pack,
; According to the cannery au
thorities who have been studying
the situation, small fruit is the
best bet for. the Silverton com
munity. , tar growing ' should
also .be oncouraged, says Mr. Gop-
t ' 'Jo eara were put up at
thV Silverton plant : during , the
iasCi season and if any are to be
canned next summer' and fall they
will have to he purchased from
outside growers. In a few years
it is hoped that Silverton will be
growing sufficient supply of her
"Apple growing," says Mr. Gop
lerud, ''is not being .encouraged
under present conditions at Sil
verton. There are too many old
diseased orchards to make new
ones successful. They, too, would
only become; diseased and not be
really worth wh::e. The old apple
orchards must be done away with
and apple diseases eradicated be
fore Silverton can become an ap
ple center. But more small fruit
is what we need. There is no bet
ter place in the world to grow
small fruit than right around Sil
verton so let's plant more of it."
Mr. Goplerud reports that the
company has been "sending can
ned goods to every state in the
union and that England is the best
foreign market." ;

that Senator McNary presented the
name of Dr. W. J. Kerr, president
of the OAC as a member of the
committee to study nationwide
agricultural conditions. It also
says that "Representative Elton
Watklns of Portland and the Eu
gene chamber of commerce as well
as other individuals and organiza
tions had Joined in the request, i
Dr. Kerr is a well known, edu
cator who has made his influence
felt beyond the state lines. He
understands agricultural condi
tions in the far west as few men
do. He would especially be a
strong representative for Oregon
and Washington where new devel
opments are coming so fast that
only the clearest minds are able
to keep track and comprehend
what is going on Dr.. Kerr is
conversant . with . all the .progress
that is ibelng made. . K ;
Dr. Kerr is also familiar with
the depression' through which the
farmers have Just, passed and he
devoted a good deal of his time
to finding . ways to improve the
farm conditions. The Oregon Ag
ricultural college has done a work
second to no other school in Am
erica and Dr. Kerr is its prophet.
The . following telegram -was
sent to President Coolidge and. to

large ' number of people watched
the novel window display now be
ing exhibited by the Giese-Powers
Furniture company. Mr.'McAdams
of the Oregon Upholstery company
of Portland is building a complete
davenport in the main window,
the whole process being carried
out in full view of the street, and
attracting considerable attention. ;
Starting with the -framework,
the davenport assumes shape after
the webbing and springs have
been attached and covered with a
special batting, j The sides and
back are finished , in much the
same manner and then padded.
After this operation the covering
is stretched on. the material de
pending upon the wish' of the pur
chaser. The entire work is all
done by hand and requires from
12 to 18 hours. 4 ;
'The object of the display is to
acquaint the public with the great
amount of work necessary in the
manufacture of a davenport and
to show them how- poor material
and workmanship may be detect
ed in upholstery. Mr. McAdams

Strong Foreign Demand and
Domestic Inquiries are
Showing Increase
With a strong foreign demand
and domestic inquiry on the in
crease, the situation in the prune
market is very promising, accord
ing to Robert C, Paulus, local
fruit broker. Buyers In Germany
and France are contracting for
the pu rchase of a large q uantity
of prunes, due to the failure of
foreign erops and the fact that for
eign producers are keeping their
fruit off the market in anticipa
tion of a Better price. New Tork.
the principal headquarters for
prune buyers, is beginning to show
increased activity. This keen de
mand has served to establish a
standard -of good prices, in spite
of the fact that there has been
a tendency on the part of Califor
nia Interests to cut prices on some
lots of prunes. The' general' feel-
Inpr, however, Is that the situation
will be corrected and a good price
maintained. -
Prunes to Germany
Since the 'adoption of the Dawes
plan legislation, the credit situa
tion in Germany has improved to
the, extent that the brokers there
are able to do a good business In
prunes pnt up In bags. Prunes
put up in this manner can be
shipped more cheaply, and1 the
duty on the export is not so high.
Before, the prunes are -placed jjiipon
the foreign market,, they are re
processed and ,packed " In boxes.
Hamburg dealers estimate that ap
proximately 25,000 tons of prunes
will be purchased this season, with
the prospect of an increase if cred
it conditions are made still more
favorable. This figure does not
equal the total purchase made last
year, but Is considered quite en-
IieTe that the good prices will con
tinue' to prevail. - -
This season's "crop -of Oregon
prunes is of splendid quality, with
a heavy sugar content, and grow
ers have had no difficulty in dis
posing of their product. Most of
the prunes have already been
bought up and contracted with
commission men.
Some Going' to France
The French prune crop is not no
large this year, but the quality in
general is very good. - For this
reason, French producers are un
willing to put -their goods on the
market at the prevailing low price
there, and, to supply the demand
for' prunes in their markets, the
French brokers are buying Oregon
and California prunes at a good
frice Small sized prunes con
inue to meet favor -with French
buyers, and the price on small
sizes has , advanced accordingly.
Fear .is expressed that there will
be an over-stocking of the large
sizes. ' - t - '
i Inferior IiOt Cheaper
I A telegram received Tuesday
from H. R. Jones, of the Drager
Fruit . company,, indicated that - a
number of concerns weo quoting
prunes at a lower price, just at a
time when conditions seemed to
be favorable for even-a rise. It
appears, however, that the low
price -quoted was for an . inferior

arose seems to be now cleared up,
