Tlie industrial center of the United States is rapidly gravitating td Oregbn because of the marvelously favorable conditions and prodigality of resources. World markets are opening before

Editor Statesman:- . -
A few words about the Ever
green . black berrlea: A" few day a
ago I read In the" Oregon States
man quite an article about Ever
green blackberries. In that arti
cle it said that they were an acci
dent, like the Loganberries, and
it was not known when the firat
seeds were dropped In the neigh
borhood of Salem. I will tell
what I know about the first Erer
preen blackberries in and around
Sublimit?-. Marion county. Oregon.
Id 1870 a man came through that
part of the county. lie had a box
with an' Evergreen potted In; It
and a small glass jar of the ber
riH lie was Bellini? plants for
future delivery. (Being then a
smalt-bey ,of 10 'yearn I ftia't
know what nursery " or where It
was located that he represented.
Mr father; Uadley Hobson, Sr.,
bought three plants at one dollar
each, and only one of them lived
and ft was several years before it
amounted to anything; and then
people tor mile.s around were beg
will be put iuHhe same box. ,lf
the two could be indiscriminately
mixed and then canned or shipped
in that fashion, the method of
putting one limb and pollenizer to
a tree would be practical and the
best method of placing pollenLers
Grafting the rollenizers -
One 'difficulty encountered in
grafting In pollenizers in the old
er trees has been the development
of heart rot. In many cases very
large cuts have been made so
that the wound would heal over
yery slowly, allowing the entrance
of the heart rot fungi. At the
present time it seems best to limit
th grafting1 to those cuts not
more than 2 to 2Va inehes in
diameter, and wherever possible
to make the cuts much smaller.
This means, of course, many more
grafts to set into a tree, but it
also acts as an assurance against
the rooting of the tree. With some
of the older trees, it would be a
difficult or impractical probWm
to work over a whole tree, and in
those cases putting in a few limbs
to the tree win probably bet -he
only solution. In that case the
selection of the variety most
widely different from the tree in
which it is being, worked would
probably bet he best way of hand
ling the problem.
For Individual Growers
As it is now, the question of
cross pollination comes down to
the actual testing of the individual
trees or varieties. As the experi
ment station will be unable to
test any large quantity sufficient
tor-working over, all the older
Orchards for propagating material

In many cases come down to t
question of testing .by the Indi
vidual growers. It is often the
cases that the Royal-Ann, Bins
and Lambert will be found grow
ing with a single secondary vari
ety, and all of them bearing well
Where this is the case, the
secondary varieties should be used
regardless of the name. In many
cases we find very poor seedlings

Some , of the rows of Lambert
cherry trees being set out by the
Lambert a Orchards Incorporated
are nearly a mile long, and
straight all the way; absolutely.
There will be about 12.0(H) trees
in this orchard, every one a Lam
bert, and the orchard will oceupy
224 acres. Nearly half the trees
have been set out, and the rest
are going out asfast as a large
force can finish preparing the
ground and do the work of plant
ing. The heavy rains of the past
few days have somewhat slowed
down the planting' operations, i
A Beautiful View
This 2"24 acre Lambert cherry
orchard, the largest of its kind
In this part of the country, if not
In any country, begins a half
mile east of Macleay. on the paved
county market highway. The land
lies high, overlooking Salem, Mt.
Angel, Shaw and other cities and
towns, and with five mountain
peaks of the Cascades in view:
Hood and Rainier and St. Helens
and Jefferson and the Three Sis
ters. It is "Waldo Hills land at
its best. It was so recognized in
pioneer days, for the holdings of
the Lamberta company are part
of the donation land claim of Wm
Taylor, taken up in 1843. It was
sold to the orchard company by
Harvey Taylor, and he himself has
some of the stock of the orchard

Any individual grower can also

to. In this the Royal Ann, Bing.
or Lambert flowers can be sacked
with ordinary paper ' sacks just
before the blossom open. Then
take limbs of the blossoms of the
tree to be tested as a pollenizer,
and keep in a roon away from
insects. When all. the flowers are
opened 4of both varieties, open up
the sack and carefully rub the
poll en iz ing limb thoroughly over
the blossoms enclosed in the sack.
This is a rough wayr of carrying
on pollination, but over a period
of years has shown that it will
give at least half the per cent of
a careful band pollination. This
is a quick way of testing on the

Why They Hope
The capital stock of the Lam

subscribed. Oh what do the stock
holders base their hopes for pro
fits, on their investment? The
leaders among them bare been
pooling their Lambert cherries the
past few years, and shipping them
in cold storage to New York City
and other bljr cities. They have
been" going under the MARION
BRAXD, of the Salem Rlack Cher
ry Growers, association, and they
have received, net here, as high
as ,8 cents a pound for their
cherries. They averaged about 13
cents last year, and 17 cents the
year before. Mr. P.rooks has head

George Vick is the, new direc
tor of the department of agricul
ture . of the Salem Chamber of
Commerce. Mr. Vick is some
thing more than a dealer in auto
mobiles and tractors and trucks
and radio outfits. He is a farmer
and fruit grower, and he thinks a
good deal of the time in terms of
what would be good for the farm
ers and fruit growers of the Sa
lem district, and therefore good
for Salem and all people in any
way interested in Salem's contin
ued growth and prosperity.
The Slogan editor has no au
thority from Mr. Vick to tell what
is on his mind, since he is obliged

Those kind of facts make the
stockholders of this big orchard
company hope for great things
when they get their trees into full
They know, however, that there
is more to the proposition than
merely getting land and .setting
out trees and then going to sleep
till the fruit trees begin to bear.
They knew there will be care ne
cessary all along the line; and
especially when bearing time
comes. There will be spraying,
especially. The price of good
Lambert cherries is e t e rln a
vigilance. There cannot be success
without working and watching.
The man who looks for an easy
job in the cherry industry, and
more especially the blnck cherry
industry, is foredoomed to failure.
Mr. Brooks is now setting out
ei'ht acres more of Lambert cher
ry trees on his own place. He
tloes not expect to see the growing
of the highest quality Lambert
cherries over done.

Mr. Vick has not made up his
mind yet as to T whether this
would be the best major cam
paign he could carry on as di
rector of the department of agri
culture of the Salem Chamber of
Commerce, but he is studying the
matter and asking the advice of
experts. -.: :-.
If he comes to the concusion;
that this is the biggest thing that
could happen to the Salem district j
he will attempt to get the support
of the other chambers of com
merce and commercial and com
munity clubs throughout the Sa
lem district, in order to put over
the idea in a large way.
"Would Not Be Missed
It is argued by the people who
favor walnut and filbert growing
as a major effort for this district
that there is scarcely a farm in
all this section en which there is
not a small tra"t of ten or five
acres or less that would, with the
proper plantings and cultivation,
produce a successful walnut or
filbert orchard; and that the land
would not be missed while bring
ing such an orchard to the bearing
stage only four to five years for
filberts and seven to nine years
for walnuts; after which the trees
may be counted upon to produce
enough to at least carry them
selves with an annual increase
for an indefinite time.
And strawberry or other fillers
may be used while the orchard in
either case is being brought to thej
bearing stage, in the rases tfj
those farmers who cannot spare
even a little land out of profitable
use for a short time.
If there is a better slogan, no
doubt Mr. Vick would be glad, to I
have suggestions along that line.
This is a land of diversity, and
there are many industries on the
land that ought to be pushed.
