NATIONAL ADVERTISING FOK OREGON I'RODUCTS Those who have atudied the qura- don of atatc development and betUr I dvertiiing for Oregon, point to the ing national advertising agency of the r ' - - - ! - J 'if . f ft lii A ' it' iV iy W ,j T?'j BERRY INTERESTS TO MEET AT SALEM WEDNESDAY Oregon City Woolen Mills have found particularly our fruits, salmon, lum ber, etc. It is setimatea inai camer as have many other advertisers, that by putting the merits of their prod ucts squarely before the nation, they have enlarged their business and thus absorbed the cost of advertising in the economics of operation. This advertising for the Oregon City Woolen Mills is handled by Bots-ford-Constantine company, the lcad- irtut need of more national advertis ing for Oregon product, Many of our renders probably saw in last wet-k'a issue of the Saturday Kvenlng Pot n double page center spread ad- w-UMTnetit in colors for the Oregon City Woolen Mill. In two different iuufs of the Saturday Evening Post thi year the Oregon City Woolen Mill have taken this great adverti.se- meiit, which i the largest ana mom eiM-iTive advertisement in the world. It's cont is 117,000 per Ukuv, but the northwest, with offices at Portland nnd Seattle. Botsford-Constantine company is also conducting large ad-i-pi-tisintr cumnai?ns in all parts of the country for such products as Till amook cheese, Hood River apples, Snowflake crackers, Albers cereals, Mapleine, Jantzen swimming suits, Goodyear rubier footwear, and others. Oregon is rapidly approaching the point where we should have many other nationally advertised products, nia cooperative associations and such products as the Del Monte canned goods are spending around six million dollars a year for national advertis ing. This has helped to build the wonderful reputation for California products which exists in all parts of the world. If you sit down and think you will realize these lower skirts are merely for higher education. Women powder their noses in pub lie, so why can't men shave on the street cars as they ride to work? Have you heard about the Scotch man hunting, a reasonable postoffice? Our idea of a good time is sitting around wondering how tired we would get if we were not too lazy. Salem The loganberry industry of this part of the Willamette valley which is again facing: a very uncer tain future, due to low prices, will be fully discussed at a meeting called of all berry growers of Oregon, to be held in the offices of the Oregon Growers' Cooperative association, ' Wednesday, December 20. The associations especially inter ested in the future of the loganberry and which will send delegates to the meeting- include the Woodburn Coop erative Berry Growers, Springbrook , Packing company, Producers Canning company of Salem, Willamette Valley Prune association of Salem, Oregon Growers1 Cooperative association of Salem and the Eugene Fruit Growers association of Eugene. During the season of 1922, there was canned in Oregon, 243,639 cases of loganberries. Figured on a basis of 30 pounds to a case, this means that 7,309,170 pounds of fresh berries were used in the 1922 pask of canned goods.' In addition to loganberries canned, King's Products company evaporated 4,000,000 pounds. It is also estimated that in Oregon there was barrelled 3000 barrels of 385 pounds each, amounting to 1,115,000 pounds. It is estimated there was made into juice 200,000 pounds of loganberries. Among those deeply interested in this great Oregon industry, it is felt that all will depend upon increasing the consumption of loganberry prod ucts. In other words, following the example of California growers in ad vancing the sale of raisins when the market was so low that the industry was about to collapse, something must be done to bring the merits of the berry before a larger consuming public Figures are not available as to the acreage of fruits for 1922 as asses sore are obliged to make a report only every other year. Hence the 1921 reports on acreages in the state are the latest Based on the 1921 horticultural re port of acreages in each county, the total loganberry acreage of the state for the year was 6253. In the central Willamette valley the county acreage in 1921 was as follows: Benton, 100; Clackamas, 204; Linn, 167; Marion, 38G8; Polk, 268; Washington, 319, and Yamhill. 423, a total of 5349 acres for thij immediate section of the valley. Comparing the year 1920 and 1921 report, it is estimated that there was an increase of several hundred acres throughout the state. In the Willam ette valley counties, there ras a slight decrease. Many growers claim that the in dustry cannot survive on a price of four cents a pound. Many are asking for six cents the coming season, but those who are familiar with the in dustry at both the growing and sell ing end, are of the opinion that if loganberry growing is to continue profitable, there must be a great in crease in markets and a much greater consuming public.

Investigation proved that the fire at the outset began in two separate places, simultaneously, ac cording to Chief Carlson. At least a dozen citizens who were in the vicin ity of the Bee Hive department store when the conflagration started said they were certain that two restaurants one at either side of the department store-p-were rgaing furnaces, while the store showed no sign of fire.
