Father." was an Avery factory crea
nor, and was worth fortunes to ih
Wiliiamette valley farmers as an edu
cational feature. '
W. 0. Davenport, wro recently came
from Iowa and bought the Hawthorne
place on the Jefferson road a mile out
of Salem, is one of the best pleased
farmers in the Willamette valley. Back
In the Hawkeye state he and his sons
farmed with an Avery tractor, which
they trusted as no farmer ever trusted
Old Dobbin, the steady profit-eater of
we rural districts. Mr Davenport and
his sons found that the Avery tractor
was represented in Salem, and they
came to investigate. A new Avery six
cylinder orchard tractor was brought
in to town late Wednesday night, On
Thursday they came in to see' the ma
chine, bought it on condition that it
would do their work and it hadn't been
in the field ten minutes on Friday
morning when they decided that it was
'all right,' 'and gave their check in
full for the machine.
Market is Claim
San Francisco, Mar. 21 The Stand
ard Oil company of California, through
its president, K. R, Kingsburv, in an
open letter today addressed to the
state railroad commission, defended Its
recent advance in fuel' oil prices "in
the hope that an increase of twenty
five cents a barrel would stimulate
production and restore the balance be
tween supply and demand."
The letter was Issued as a result of
an inquiry addressed to the oil com
pany last week by the railroad com
mission asking why an increase was
necessary. As many publio utilities
operate their plants with power ob
tained from fuel oil, the commission
said it believed the public should know
the reasons for the increase. The oil
situation in California, which the com
pany declares to be serious. Is review
ed in detail in the company's letter,
which points out "that an increase wi
price tends to conserve the use of fuel
and to check the depletion of stocks.
This is the only known remedy."
On the subject of gasoline, which
the company says has an equal Inter
est with that of fuel oil, the letter
"Gasoline must be kept at a price
level where it will not be shipped to
other markets In quantities sufficient
o deplete the California market., per
example, at present time gasoline is
selling in New York at 28 cents a
gallon wholesale. Previous to the

"That the gasoline market is short
may be illustrated by the fact that
this company, to supply the require
ments of its trade, several months ago
purchased about 50,000,000 gallons of
gasoline in the mid-continent : field
which the company is shipping to I
points customarily supplied from Cali

that the price of gasoline has remained
practically constant, compared to the
advance of other commodities. In
July, 1919, the price of gasoline on
this coast was increased one cent "per
gallon'. This was the only advance that
had been made since December, 1916,
except an increase of half a cent a

the fuel administration to absorb tha
general freight increase throughout
