Cannery Manager Reports
Processed Cherries are
; Now Sought Here
The new cherry tariff has
changed the source of supply for
' processed cherries, and the manu
facturers are" looking to this coast
Instead of to Italy, was a remark
of W. G. Allen, northwest mana
ger for Hunt Bros. In a talk to
the Rotary club on the canning
Industry yesterday. Sour cher-
ries, such as Salem Montmoren-
eies. are being tried out ior mis
market bowerer; and these are
grown widely over other parts or
Jhe United States, so the coast
will br no means nave tn mar
ket to Itself, for these sour cher
ries can be grown and sold more
cheaply than our. sweet cnernee.
The opportunity for putting la
brine cherries that hare been
split by rain Is limited because of
the danger of mold and rot;
which the government Is trying
hard t prevent in fruit soid ior
food. However Mr. Alien ex
pressed, the hope .that scientific
development might breed a cherry
whi would not split In the
rains, though this he said was a
matter of the future.
Expansion Is I'oasible
Mr. Allen gave a very Interest
ing review of the canning situa
tion. He pointed out that the
turveya showed that .only 10
jcenU of the consumers' food dol
lar was spent for canned foods.
k" while 85 cents was spent for per
V ishables. There is thus opportnn
, ity for expansion of the share the
canner gets of the food dollars.
' Nature fooled the canners this
year. Where overproduction was
feared in strawberries, cherries,
and prunes, and some canners
got scared and cut prices, adverse
weather cut down the production
so in Allen's opinion the first of
the year will see little surplus in
At the close of -his talk Mr. Al
len demonstrated ; the making of
the pressure test on pears which
! has been a great help to the
! pickers In 'determining just when
to pick, and to canners to deter
mine Just when to tin fruit that
has been held in storage. .
Mr. Allen summed up his ad-
dress with the remark that while
the past few years have been
trying ones in the Industry, the
hope for the future lies In ex
panding markets and in giving
better values to the , eonsumlne

Scramble of Killers
For Live Chickens

PORTLAND,' Aug. 1- (AP) -Scramble
of killers for live
chicken supplies is causing; in
tense strength all through the lo
cal poultry trade. In fact the
strength la - practically general
along the entire Pacific slope. It
appears primarily due to the
sharp advance in California prices
recently, and especially those at
- Two of the bigger killers are
waging a war to secure their
needs. Qne of them, with a new
grading system, which Is claimed
to benefit those that have qual
ity offerings, appeared the ag
gressor. In fact its higher bids
forced other killers to pay more
for their needs.
Prices are today more uniform
but somewhat higher than a
week ago. -Demand la- keenest
for light weight springs, which
are extremely scarce.
There Is practically no change
in the market for butter here.
On the ' produce exchange as well
as on the open market, sales are
much in line with supplies. '
Generally maintained prices
are reported in the market for
strictly fresh eggs although some
alleged fresh stock is being sold
at discounts of 1 to 2c from the
list. The trade is not taking to
the special grades because of con
flict with the state law.
Generally slower trade tone is
reflected in the market for coun

Ctll BE REMEDIED
Child Entering School Needs
1 Handicapped Without
The first day of schooll That
if nal event in every -child's life
la made the subject of, a timely
bulletin Just released by the Ore
gon state ; board - of health. Has
the child a .clean slate, physically,
the bulletin asks, and: continues:
. Parents , look forward with
pride to the day when their child
Lfirst starts to school. To the child
the pride Is even greater. It Is to
him the day when he becomes a
big boy with the honor and pres
tige to which he has long been
looking forward; ,A new and wide
world' is opened to him the day he
enters school. He has to adjust
himself mentally and physically
to the new. atmosphere, in to which
he has been Introduced. For all
this,' and to Insure a . reasonable
program at .seXool, the child must
be as free as 'possible from personal-handicaps.-
Have the parents given the
child a clean slate? Is the child
physically prepared to go to
school? Is the child going to be
under a handicap through some
defect in teeth,. In eyesight,' in
hearing, in breathing', or tn some
other way? While life in school
can hardly be compared to a race,
yet the child. should not enter it
until freed of all unnecessary im
pediments ' and all remediable
Very few children suffer from
physical defects which cannot be
corrected, most of them rather
easily, hut a tremendous number
of children are "entering school
who have physical defects which
have not been corrected, because
their presence is not known or
because they have not been con
sidered by . the parents of suffi
cient Importance to have them
No parent can truthfully say
that he or she knows all about
their child unless that child has
a complete physical examination
of comparatively recent date by a
competent physician. A health ex
amination Is a thorough physical
and mental appraisal of an Indi
'An Unwelcome Gigolo

vidual by a competent physician
for the purpose of detecting men
tal and physical Impairments and
faulty habits of living. This ex
amination may- result In the dis
covery of these defects at a time
when the signs and symptoms of
them are yet vague and even, ab
sent. ' - .
. The object of the health exam
ination Is to keep yon well. It la
obviously easier, safer, cheaper,
more certain and more comfort
able, as well as more convenient
and more efficient to keep well
than It is to get sick, and .then
try to- get well. It is -probably safe
to say that If every child had an
annual 'complete physical examin
ation, wlth-rthe proper action tak
en on the advice given, many hap
py years would be added to the
average length of life.Jt. lavajfact
that nearly all of the diseases re
sponsible for disability and death
during childhood and early adult
life can either be cured .or arrest
ed it discovered early.
. It follows that a physical exam
ination while good for children Is
equally Important for the parents.
Too many parents are inclined to
believe that if they have the be
ginning of a serious illness they
would rather , not know about It
until it becomes so serious as to
cause subjective symptoms.' They
do not realise the good results of
early treatment and the very dis
astrous results of late treatment,
Keeping well, is always better
than getting well.

Popular Stocks up T to 4
Points; British ; Give
NEW 'YORK, Aug. 26 (AP)
The stock market appeared to
have been sold to a standstill to
day, so bears decided to buy back
the shares they had sold short,
causing a substantial upturn in
the last hour. t.
There were numerous net gains
of 1 to 4 points in the popular
trading Issues. The price average
of 90 leading stocks -recorded a
net - gain of nearly 1 4-5 points,
the largest In more than a week.
Trading all but stalled in dead
center during the earlier hours ol
the session, and even with the
late corerlng flurry, the day's
turnover was only 343.519 shares.
Developments in the British
government continued to provide
considerable encouragement In fl- -nancial
circles, which was reflect
ed by an advance of 5-18 of a
cent in sterling cables to 4.86 U.
the best level in sometime, and
only 3-8 "off a cent below gold
- Most of the advance-In shares
was . recorded In the last half
hour. Allied Chemical gained
about 4 points, possibly reflecting
revival of the European nitrate
Cartel, and other chemicals were
generally higher. American to
bacco was subject to further sell
ing for a time, but recovered to
close a fraction higher. Ran a gen
