Fruit Crop This
Year Depends on
"the present season's fruit crop,"
said C. I. Lewis, editor of the Oregon
Grower, a monthly paper published in
the interest of he Oregon Growers' Co
operative association, "largely depends
upon the condition ,'of the weather
during the nest two oV three weeks. If
during that time favorable climatic
conditions prevail In Oregon, there
will be at least 60,000,000 bushels of
fruit harvested for the commercial
.trade." Mr. Lewis has irlven the fi-nit
question a great deal of study and con
sideration and seems to have very op.

the fact that the tardy growers are
the ones who will derive the greatest
returns from their yards this season.
They who failed to train the vines be

Seymour Jones, found them uninjured
when the snow departed, and as a re
sult they win bear heavy. Mr. Jones
does not encourage the negligence, oi
course, which proved, to be his gain

berries were not injured while others

special pains to train the vines after
