NO MORE BOPS ON HOP RANCH If there were we didn't
see them" on the Salem Chamber of Commerce tour. . . . are
referring to the Horst Hop Ranch once designated as the largest
single hop ranch in the world. One thing we did see oa this hop
ranch was a lot of asparagus. One of the members of the tour said
there were approximately too acres of asparagus now under con
tract to Pauluj Bros.. Salem But tome of the asparagus we saw
hadn't got off to a good start. . . There were other parts of the
huge planting doing nicely Some, however, had to be transplanted.

addition to a larce freezing plant a farm cafeteria, some 4 buses
to hul employes an air crop dusting demonstration . .
In speaking hnefly in the cafeteria Stanley drove, manager
of the C of C. told Die group that they should learn all they can
about agriculture as it returns more dollars to the state than any
one other business . it is now Oregon s biggest business With
out our farms we wouldn't have our processing plants our grain
