IRE Iff ROVED
New fan Device for Tunnels
Cuts;: Cost; Invention
Introduced Herei
Oregon prune growers haTehad
few favorable breaks In the recent
East, tending t stabilize this
branch of horticulture; to. render
t&elrs eren a reasonably remun-
eratire line among Industries- on
; ; the land that may be counted
upon to render something above
bare expenses even in rears nrnen
their trees bear average or above
average crops. ; An - Important
break that has come to them
: lately 1 oae that concerns a low
priced, fan system calculated to
cheapen the drying of their irult
to such a degree as to make1 it a
noteworthy advance.
Out in western Douglas eeun
ty, below" where the torth and
i south: branches Join to form the
' greater -TJmpqua river flowing to
the sea., there lives a farmer boy
named Walter H. Solle. Or he
was a mere feaunk-of a boy" five
or-six years, ago. when he was
discouraged at the slow and; im
perfect performance of his fath
er's prune dryeri He conceited
the idea that the air in the tun-
aels, of the dryer, did no.jt , have
sufficiently rapid and even cir
culation. He tinkered with an old
fanning mill, brought it into play
on' one of the tunnels and it
worked. It was crude, but it gave
greater speed and efficiency on
the one tunnel where it operated.
i But it did no service in the other
tunnels. Then he elaborated soaie
w hat on his plans, applying a
fanning device to, each, tunnel. He
then achieved results that were
astounding, revolutionary, I and at
little vest, and with a decided
saving In fuel.
Patent Attained cm
Application of Fan '
, Young. Solle w,roteto the pat
ent office. Word came back that a
fan was too old and common! a
device for a patent; but he was
advised that the 1 application of
fills fan to a drying tunnel, a new
idea as to placement, might re
ceive a patent. This was followed
;il and the object accomplished.
. Al number of the leading prunef
! growers of Douglas county have
jhiace adopted the device, paying
: Softie small royalty,
i iMembers of the organization of
,H S. Gile & Co. of Salem, grow
ers of prunes in Marion and Yam
hill counties, and ( packers -and
merchants of prunes and shippers
' throughout western and southern
Oregon, took note of the Solle de
vice. The result is that it is be
ing tried out in the Salem dis
trict.;. . .
j The device has so far been giv
en no distinctive name. It la call-
ed merely the SoUe recirculating
Tun jmtem T4nt It la marit'thin
that. The application In i drying
tunnel is the main thing.
' H. S. Gile Jb Co. are using it
for the third season in their 12
tunnel - Sunnyside ' dryer, the 12
fans being on one1 shaft, and op
erated by a five horse power mo
tor.' The tunnels were lengthened
o aa to take in a few more trays
i -made as long as the building
would permit. If there had been
more 'room, the tunnels would
have been made longer.
! The fans in the Sunnyside plant
are of wood; as are nearly all if
not all' those used fa Douglas
county. A metal fan would be far
ibetter. an obvious fact, which
jwill be. explained a, little further
on. ".' i
i The heat applied, by the fans in
the Smayaide plant is kept at
161) to 1 1 e. degrees. This gives a
capacity of about six tons a day.
Tlie -orchard tracts served ; here
cover about z acres, Deionging
to H. 8. Gile & Co., and with the
exception of a small tonnage of
prunes in the rush season, this
dryer is taking care of the whole
.crop from that acreage. They are
mostly Italian or Oregon prunes,
'with a few petites and date
-prunes, sweet or French varle-
- ties. The Italians require a long
er time in drying than the oth-
- era. ;.
Fran Harvest
Employ' Many " '1 -i
Here - may . be " appropriately
mentioned - the fact that prune
growing is a real industry on the
land. For about SO days, during
rlfhe drying season, this 2 Off acre
f orchard " gives employment; to 65
to-.? people, including the pick
ers. Throughout'- the war, in the
various orchard operatlo ns,
steady forces of labor are" neces
sarily em ployed. "Thus the laborer
gets work and his hire,- whether
prune prices are high or low In
' the world's markets. Spread this
. to : the . thousands of acres of
prune orchards in the "Salem dis
trict, and it is seen that the dis
tribution of wages makes a
large, contribution to the stability
and volume of business here,
j After the members; of the or
ganization of H. S. Gile & Co. had
their- attention called, through
their Roseburg branch, to the
Solle fan device, they looked
about for some one who would
make a better fan. T. M. Barr, Sa
lem plumber and metal worker,
tackled -the Job. The fan must be
cheap. It must be made from ma
terials requiring a minimum ef
new fashioning; standard stuff.
That an been done. !

on one shaft. With a small
amount of reconstruction,; the
five tunnels are operated with
great efficiency. The heat here I

prunes for the season, with about
a week yet to run. And the prod
uct; is high in quality,! as Is .the
case at the Sunnyside plant of
H. S. Gile & Co.
The tunnels at the R h u b e tx
dryer are longer than those at
the; Sunnyside. plant. He gets
greater efficiency, because he has
a better fan. He can hold the heat
higher with? safety. The Sunny
side plant will have metal fans
next rear. Wood is not suitable.
The nuts get loose, with shrink
ing and swelling, as is obvious.
Why is the use of the Solle de
vice such an - advantage in the
prune Industry? Because it gives
low; cost of installation, or slant
investment with more economical
cost of operation. It can be In
stalled with alight changes In al
most any dryer with tunnels. It
increases efficiency, perhaps by a
third. ; And It requires , less fuel.
Growers In Douglas county say It
cuts the fuel cost in half.- H. S.
Gile figures that, these items may
be counted upon as being lower
ed 30 per cent:; and perhaps more,
with metal tans and more rebuild
ing of old tunnels, or with new
dryers. Thus larger tonnages may
be handled with lessened costs all
around.
It should not be Imagined that
there are not other fan devices in
us in prune drying. There are
several.- But .the cost of Installing
1$ prohibitive for most growers;
especially in, these time of tight
money and depression generally.
Some of the air circulation plants
run to $10,000 to f 15.000 and
more for buildings and ma
chinery. . I ; i
Device Introduced
At Strategic Time
The Solle device comes at an
opportune . time, to encourage
prune growing here. Several
prune dryera have been destroyed
by fire, in this i district, : the pres
ent season. It has been so in for
mer years. Not many have been
rebuilt. The Solle device will en
able an old dryer to serve more
Orchards acres; more tonnage,
and at less cost. A newly built
dryer, with metal fans and prop
erly arranged tunnels, long, high
ones, still more.
Thisv article might be greatly
extended, with descriptions of the
picking and hauling of the prunes
from the orchards, .the washing
and sorting in order to-eliminate
fruit with brown rot, etc., and at
times the . use; of a solution to
break down the tough skins of the
fruit; the storing in bins after
drying, etc., etc. The picture is an
interesting industry on the land,
and one worthy, of every effort at
preserving and extending it, for
the world will not likely In Our
day, of.lof ages to, come, eat as
many prunes as is good' for lte
dietary requirements in the in
terest of health and strength. !"
This fan device ' alsw gives su
perior service in the drying of the
walnut crop. It is capahle of such
control as to give any required
temperature. ; j

Forty Resolutions !
Before Convention
When the contention recessed
early yesterday afternoon a total
of 40 resolutions had been Intro
duced, and referred to the various
committees. ' Resolutions: ! intro-
daeed today included a demand
for .labor , members to purchase
Oregon-made products wherever
possible, opposition to similar or
ganisations representing them
selves as the federation of labor.
support of a disarmament pro
gram, consideration of the nation
al war debt moratorium,' urging
organization, of the cleaning and
dyeing workers, and the request
that laborers demand the union
label on garments. v
J. J. Sechrlst, of Ballstdn, vice
president of the Farmers lUnlon
of Oregon, .spoke on the causes
and remedy of business ; depres
sion as it .affects the farmer and
the laborer. ; .1 .
"Prosperity left the city fay way
of the farm, and it must return
by way of tne farm," ; chrl9t
said. VThe biggest problem of
the laborer is to get Jobs to Secure
money to purchase farm products,
while the farmers problem! is to
find a market for their produee
in order to secure money -to buy
the product ! of the laboring man.
The cause of this, condition was
noted before the stock crash of
1929. j . ; !; j -
"The i cause dated back! to de
preciation of farms, and ended by
more than, a million farmers los
ing title! to their lands and placed
in competition with laborers for
Jobs. Industry lost its greatest
market during this time. Farm
ers were forced to buy: from a
protected domestic market, while
they were forced to sell j on : a
world, market, where the! price
received for the ten per cent ex
port governed the price of all
farm products. . !
"The remedy for the situation
Is a fixed price for farm products, .
thus making farmers Independent
of the foreign market,: j where
competition with the r lowest j
wages paid in the world was forc
ed upon them. The men will re
turn to the farm."
