SALEM. Or.. Aug. !.( Special)
The Oregon state penitentiary,
with 24 machines in operation and
a crew of 50 convicts at work, now
has the largest and best equipped
flax : scutching mill in the .world.
Oregon's nearest competitor in tht
flax industry . is in Ireland, where
there is a mill with 2S machines.
As an inducement for good work
and attention to business, the state
pays the convicts employed in the
flax plant SO cents a day. . Similar
compensation is provided for con
victs engaged in other departments
of the flax industry.! including
work of stacking the raw material,
operating; the retting . tanks , and
taking eare of the flax in the dry
ing fields. The drying process fol
lows retting of the flax and re
quires a period of approximately
ten days. -if .
'' I Xarge Indnstry Foreseen
; Although flax operations at the
penitentiary have been in'progress
only a few years, Gdvernor Pierce
and other persons who have . ob
served closely the development of
the industry, are of the opinion
that it is. no longer in an experi
mental stager and that it will some
day become one of the largest re
sources in the entire west."
CoL W, P, Bartram, who, for
many, years was closely Identified
with the flax Industry-in Canada,
said recently that the Oregon cli
mate 'was well adapted to the
growing of flax1 and that the qual
ity of the product produced in the
Willamette valley was equal to, it
not better than that grown in Can
ada and some parts of Ireland.
In an effort to promote the flax
industry as rapidly as possible a
movement has been launched here
for the construction of the largest
processing mill in" 'the United
States, it plans carry the plant
will represent an expenditure of
-$650,000. Most of the capital al
ready has been subscribed, the in
vestors being prominent men of
Salem, Eugene, Albany, Corvallls,
Portland and many other cities.,
j $23 Acres Sown to Flax'
Records in the" office of the state
penitentiary - show that approxi
mately 2323 acres of land in Mar
lon,' Polk and Yamhill counties
were sown to flax this year. All

the state penitentiary flax plant.
Prices for the flax range from 922
a ton for the short-mowed straw
to. $38 a ton for the long-pulled
straw. Theest fiber, is obtained
from the long straw. Although
this year has not been favorable
for the production of flax in the
Willamette valley, approximately
2500 tons of flax straw will be
produced and turned over to the
prison plant, for processing.
, The contracts existing between
the penitentiary and growers are
simple. The'farmers harvest their
own flax and deliver it to tae pris
on Dlant. It Is stocked in open
1 sheds outside the prison wills and
later goeg to the retting! tanks.
These tanks have a capacity of ap
proximately 100 tons of. straw
dally and more are being aded as
the production increases. During
the past few weeks nine new wood
en tanks having a capacity of five
tons each have been added to the
Much Work Ahead of riant
After being treated in the ret
ting tank for ten days the straw
goes through the . drying process
It isjoaded into trucks, hauled out
into the fields and spread out un
der the sun. There'lt is left for
ten days more. Because of the
weather conditions in Oregon the
drying ' process . is limited, to the
summer months. When dried the
straw again is placed in the sheds,
where It remains until sent to the
straw breakers and scutchers. The
.plant was in operation most of
last winter and enough flax la now
in sight to Insure work-until late
in the spring 'of 1926, :
