Paulus was the speak er at the Salem Rotary club noon luncneon yieruy. was the fruit ana canning and packing industries. It was a big subject, and the time was short. Mr. Paulus, either in his niod eBty or on account of forgetful ness or lack of time, failed to say one thing that is very important. He did not mention the fact that the Paulus Bros. Packing company bought and packed last year 140 tons of strawberries, ana that they have already bought 400 tons of the 1928 crop of straw berries - And are still buying, and will . .

It is known that the Hunt canaery has con tracted for a much larger tonnage of strawberries than was packed at that big plant last year.

Mr. Paulus went on to outline the prospects for various cropf this year: Crop Prospects Noted Gooseberries: The pack has in creased steadily for the last eight or nine years, chiefly at the t cost of a. money sacrifice on the part of the packers. Gooseberries must compete with blackberries, which are now selling at 2 to 3 Vi cents a pound, and they cannot meet the competition. Packers lost ap . nrnitmatel v a dollar a case on them last year. Strawberries: Much extra acre age was bearing last year, because of a shortage the year before, and the crop was above normal, -so that 56.000 barrels were packed and 9,000 barrels remain unsold.
