Every, major crop has its " problems.. We may overdo on
most of them; We may grow; more Strawberries than we can

these berries in barrels. And loganberries. And gooseber

doubt all right themselves in time, partly owing to our super

the Lamberts will likely bring up

. The experiments in canning
black cherries; carried on by sev
eral of our largest can ners in the
valley, may develop an outlet that

crops of BIngs and Lamberts. But
the cherry growers will always
need a good deal of fair weather

from heavy rains Interspersed
with warm sunshine.
The Portland Telegram suggests
factories that will process prunes
and send them to market under
attractive names, to avoid the
odium of the ancient boarding
house joke. Not a bad idea. In
England all prunes are called
plums. They are plums, in fact.
The cannery demand is likely to
help a lot, too. Under any name,
the prune is a great fruit, and the
world might be taught to under
stand this by good advertising.

There are two sides to .every
story and I would like to devote
a few paragraphs to the auto rac
ing situation in Salem.
No matter how sincere or hon
est a promotor may be he must
be well discouraged with the sit
uation prevailing at the state fair
grounds. Just east, of the fair grounds is
a j small farm property bordering
the track. When there is any
thing of interest promoted on the
track, the owner of this property
without investment in the enter
prise, for a small sum sells admis
sion to the fence on the east side
of the track.
This Is unfair and is one of the
things that has killed the Salem
fair grounds track and consequent
ly injured the establishment of
the track as a Willamette valley

During the rai-s of May 7th,
hundreds of persos took advant
age of this "economical" means of
witnessing the evt n.s. forgetting
that ' this would handicap the
game, here. : - "

i( :' Robert C Paulus reviewed the cannery situation in a talk
at the Salem Rotary noon luncheon yesterday: " He told of the
weak spots as well as the strong ones. He said the English
dealers have a large carry-over of loganberries, because they
over-bought last year. But they are taking a loss, and the
cheaper prices, will no doubt stimulate buyer demand, and
bring the dealers into the market later for supplies of this'and 1,0081 everything that helps

Paulus thinks the same law will even up things later on. But
this retards buying for future use, and obliges cannery men
ty carry large? stocks, and thus cripples ' small concerns in
'financing tfie present year's pack. There is a bright side tti
.the! canned prune market. It is cleaned up, so that every
cannery will likely use all - that can be put through in the
short season for canning this fruit. And in apples there will
likely be a big pack, for the same reason. ; The canners have
Hheir troubles," but they will no doubt muddle through. The
whole Salem fruit district is vitally interested. Without
'prosperous canneries ; the outlook would be far from good for
future fruit'erop sales. , v

Addressing the first meeting of
the Salem district route salesmen
for , the Western Dairy Products
company,' E. E. Sweet, merchan
dise man for the Seattle firm
which has a large local plant here
in .Salem, last night commended
tb local men on the sales work
being done here, and explained
plans for further development of
the local field.
The major product of the West
ern Dairy Products company is
Sunfreze ice-cream, which recently
completed a $2, 000 contest tor a
name, and because of the publicity
given it' then, and also because of
it? fine quality, has become a popu
lar seller everywhere. The same
company manufacturers the weH
known Dixies. Plants manufactur
ing Western Dairy products are
located at 15 points, on the coast,
from Los Angeles to Spokane.
Mr. Sweet announced that the
record of Sunfreze sales in the
Salem district, including Salem.
McMinnville. Albany, Toledo, and
Tillamook, has been far beyond
the expectations of the company,
and predicted another large in
crease in the future.
Part of the success of the sales
force of the company is due to the
gigantic advertising campaign be
ing conducted -on ; the coast, fea
turing its products. - The States
man is at present carrying adver
tising for the company which ex
ceeds any-ever before carried for
an ice cream manufacturer." "
