PRUNE MARKET IS
IN HEALTHY CONDITION
Salem "Oregon and the prune in
dustry are to be congratulated upon
the present buying mood of the
trade," says N. J. Newhouse assistant
general manager of the Oregon
Growers' Cooperative association.
"If it continues for any length of
time, it will mean the cleaning up
of Oregon's great tonnage now safely
harvested. According to a published
statement by a well known packer in
the northwest, about sixty percent of
this year's crop has been sold to date.
"The selling of the relatively large
tonnage still in the hands of growers
and packers was beginning to be a
problem. The complete cleanup of
the crop at fair prices to the growers,
under the present unsettled conditions
in Europe, will be a great boon to
"Published rumors to the effect
that this buying flurry is caused by
the Oregon Growers' Cooperative as
sociation overselling from four to
five million pounds is ridiculous to
any one familiar with conditions.
"While the very early estimates
will not be realized, the wonderful
drying and harvesting weather is
saving every prune in Oregon, and in
creasing numbers of growers report
"Not only has the association
filled its large canned and green
prune orders a hundred percent, but
it cou:d not be oversold the amount
published if it did not receive another
"It's nine large packing plants are
running night and day, and twelve
additional warehouses already have
had, to be rented to take care of the
great tonnage. From all indications,
the association will be in the market
again later when its early orders
have been taken care of.
"The association is glad to see the
firmer prune prices, not only because
it facilitates deliveries but it' benefits
the entire state and justifies the work
of the association in .earljjr 'opening up
I new markets for our large tonnage, ,(

The School Monopoly Bill
has a misleading name!
YOU have an interest in schools? Then be
sure to understand the true meaning of the
School Monopoly Bill which is called on the
ballet the Compulsory Education Bill.
The reason that this name is misleading is
because we already have compulsory educa
tion under the present existing law, and we
already have compulsory teaching in English
in all schools.
What this bill really proposes is to substitute state
control over the education of your children for your control.
The people of Michigan have already overwhelmingly
defeated this measure, because it attacked the freedom of
Protect your rights which are being endangered do
not be misled by the name of this bill. Read the proposed
bill carefully. Read the campaign literature. Find out
the intent of the bill which is disguised by the title.
You will find that that they propose school monoply.
A hidden attack upon freedom of education.
