DALLAS, Ore., Aug. 11. (AP)
Prune "growers of Oregon were
taken to task here today by R. H.
Kipp, manager of the marketing
department of the Portland cham
ber of commerce, in a meeting of
Polk5 county prune ' men. Alleged
subversire methods used by some
under the mask of cooperation,
failure of many to cooperate in the
marketing of prunes, and the prac
tice of breaking contracts, were
dwelt upon by the speaker.
In upbraiding and excoriating re
calcitrant and negligent operators
of prune orchards,' Kipp likened
some of them to Judas and charg
ed that others oppose cooperation
with the weapon Samson used upon-the
Phllistlnes-M:he jawbone of

meant to them and they are will

believing that it will be beneficial
to all. But to our, mind, outside
