j Oregon had the largest late
strawberry acreage of any state
la the union, according to fig
ures recently issued. Of the total
acreage in the United States
which amounted - to . 175.720
acres, Oregon had 9.450 acres.!
(The late group- of states, in
which Oregon , Is the leader for
acreage and 'production. Is re
ported to be' about holding Its
own with an acreage approxi
mately the same as that of 19)0
and about seven, per cent above
the five year average. I j
jln the late group, which come
most actively In competition with
Oregon, the total for thie states
as enumerated above, Is an esti
mated acreage of 44,O0 for
1931 as against 44.19 In, 19 JO.
These 1 same states in 19S
showed a total acreage of 31.
180. - - - f '!
" Oregon acreage during, the six
year period, : and . including ' the
preliminary estimate for i 1931,
had acreages as follows, accord
ing to the department's figures:
1925. 5930? 1521. . 7J20; ; 1927,
8400;. 1928, 10.000; 1929, 10.
500; 1930. 9451; 1931, 1 9930.
Probably-half of Oregon's straw
berry acreage Is In Marlon coun
ty, perhaps more. This shews: a
grand total acreage, for Oregon
over- the entire period of , 01,-530.-
as compared, for instance,
to 31.110 for- New York, the
next largest producer outside lot
"Washington, of any states In the
croup. wasnington s estimated
' acreage for 1931 Is placed
7980 as compared to 7500
-1930. r. ?-r- 1
A marL'd decrease in the Jo-
cal teas pack Is Indicated, by re-
rjorta . coming in-irom .growers.
So far attempts to secure bean
contracts ' from canneries have
ben ansuecessful. - The same
situation Is true et the pumpkin
pack as . local canneries are re
tasincr to sign any contracts for
nnmDkln acreage. ; Tne bean sit
nation however is considered i
most Vital. to local growers.
f The . reason given . Is in the
enormous , amounts of beans
packed at low prices ia the east
and raiddle west. As far aa the
silnatlon npw" Is lined up It be
gins to look as though, the west
ern outlets for these packs . have
to . be. stimulated to develop the
sack here to any extent Justi at
; present, but It may be the east-
eru voutiook win again snape it
self in another year or two so
the local peeks are started again
en a big" scale. - . . j
I Of course, as far. as this year
Is concerned, there Is always- a
chance of a right-about faces in
the planting up to Miy or even
later and there is still some time
for tb planting et beans, in fact
quite a little. So contracts may
come a little later but right How
It doesn't look so good for either

TO STAGE COMEDY
JEFFERSON, Jan. 20." The
Jefferson high school will present
a three-act comedy, "The Daugh
ter pf the Duke of Ballyhoo." at
the i Masonle ball at 8 o'clock
Tuesday evening, February 2.'
;The story centers about Eileen.
a mysterious girl, who comes in
through the window of a strange
house and faints on the floor. Sh
seems- to bo a victim of amnesia
and because she cannot remember
her name, the hero. Gray Philips.
jokingly calls her "The Daughter
of the Duke of Ballyhoo.' Later.
after th snobbish Cynthia, who
looka down on Eileen socially,
makes her think Gray Is engaged
to her, Eileen disappears, leaving
Gray to think she is his sister who
has been kidnaped years before.
Micky McMonogan, a hick detec
tive, eventually solves the mys
tery; Micky is the "gentleman
friend" of Maggie, the maid, who
revels in the details of murders
and in sensational fiction.
