WORKS ON PLAN
April 18, 1927
Editor, Eastei-n Clackamas News:
Hiving been asked several times
for a statement of the situation as
to organization among the dried
prune growers, particularly in view
of the fact that the report was made
by the Government Economist at Sa
lem on the 12th, we want to say that,
while some people were desirous of
holding up action awaiting this gov
ernment report, in view of the state
ments made to us by the different
prune growers, to the best of our
knowledge, the growers are not wil
ling to enter into any other kind of
an organization at this time except
one which includes the commercial
packers along very similar lines to
the plan used in California.. There
fore, it seems to us there is nothing
to do but wait until there is a defi
nite organization formed in Califor
nia, or at least a tentative contract
definitely signed by the shippers.
After this is done then the committee
of five can immediately meet and see
if some plan can be agreed upon to
conform to the ideas expressed by
the prune growers of Oregon in pre
It has seemed to us that May 5th
should be the latest date for Oregon
to wait, and if the committee of
five by that time has not been able
to fully outline a plan for the Ore
gon growers and packers both to
work together, then we think it is
time to take up a different plan
which may be possible with the
glowers. We believe before May
5th California is going to have her
plan completed and we are going to
have a plan to offer from the com
mittee of five. When that time ar
rives we will be ready to do our part
in going out and discussing the plan
and assisting to organize the dried
prune industry in time to handle the
1927 crop. Until such time as we
can go before the growers with a de
finite plan as a substitute in case we
cannot work out the plan they desire,
we have nothing new to give to the
growers. The committee of five is
now working on an Oregon plan.

Some flocks are found entirely free
