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

continue to buy as fast as tnej
can sell them. They. believe they
are by no means yet through buy
Ine strawberries.
This Is significant. 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. If al
the other canneries and packing
concerns of the Salem district are
doing as well, there will be nc
strawberries of the 1928 crop left
on the vines for lack of purchas
ers. The following is a meager out
line, gathered by the reporter, oi
what Mr. Paulus did-say. in th
course of bis talk:
Criticism Unfounded
Reasons supporting his conten
tion that criticism aimed! at ttu
canneries recently for their failure
to purchase all of the surplus fruit
supply, is without foundation,
were given by Mr. Paulus.
Persons indulging in this criti
cism fail to realize that this is. an
age of substitution, and that with
a few exceptions, every product
for which a j greater sale is ob
tained, reduces the demand foi
other commodities equally, he de
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.
There will be a 15 to 25 per, cent
