THE CAPITAL JOURNAL
SOME OF SALEM'S INDUSTRIAL ACT1VITES
Bi Marshall Jf. Dana
(The Oregon Journal.)
state capitals have the sleeping

wand which builds industry based on
e transformation of raw products
produced locally, is the wealth that
tomea from the soil.
The wealthy soil around Salem is the
tiling that is making Oregon's capitaY
l real city despite the state capitalis
Big Fruit Output.
But not the soil alone. Add the vi
sion, the coura-re and the enterprise
that Salem'9 citizens are putting into
their Industries, the improvement or
their town, their commercial club and
their Rotary club.
Salem is not only the state capital.
It ii the seat of Marion county. It ex
tends trade control over into a part 01
Polk county. Marion county claims to
produce more fruit, twice as much
fruit as Hood River and Jackson coun
ties together. It's a big claim at that.
It claims to grow more corn than any
other Oregon county. The Marionites
ought to know whereof they speak, for
every year the typical products and
all the statistics are carted numerous
ly by their proud producers down to
the state fair, which also is held at Sa
lem. " '
The Kings Products company at Sa
lem has made u national advertising
appropriation of $200,000, and one lit
tle wonders at the size of the sum
vhen used in juxtaposition with the
fact that this concern is seriously said
to be processing annually nearly- 5,000,
WO poundB of Oregon's fruits and veg
etables for the palates of the nation at
Its Salem plant, and as much more at
Its plant in The Dalles. . . .
The Phez company is spending a
persistent $125,000 n year to make
America thirsty for a whole nation's
supply of the healthful Juices pressed
out of luscious loganberries. - x

The Kf.y woolen mills have caused
the shearing of the flocks on a thou
sand hills, for last year their product
was valued at $604,000 and the year
Wore at $900,000.
Back in 1910, a boastful pamphlet
claimed for Salem's three banks ag
gregate deposits of $3,960,572. Today
four banks have combined resources
of $10,074,071, and the banking turn
over aggregates $1,000,000 a day. One
of the Salem banks financed the prune
crop of the vicinity -to the extent of
$1,500,000 without the slightest evi
dence of strain; this speaks well not
only for the bank but for the size of
the prune crop. , The same pamphlet
credited Marion county In 1910 with with the exception of the stretch be
