Fruit Association’s Enterprise
Proves A Needed
"T he Forest Grove Fruit Associa

which effects either directly or indi
rectly every person in Forest Grove,
and many people throughout the county.
There are nearly two hundred members
in the Association, and many others in

use are grown by the members and

working in this manner the market is
never flooded with any one commodity,
and good prices are assured.
"The cannery employs as many as
fifty workmen during the harvest
season, and in this way a great deal of
money is kept in the county. Last
month the labor bill was $1,128. It
sometimes goes over $100 per day.
“ Our first run on loganberries ran
over 40,000 pounds, for which a ready
market was found right here on the
Coast. In this fruit alone we predict a
great future in the Valley, not only for
the large ranches but for the small
farmer. The prices paid for the berries
were highly satisfactory to the growers.

for the reason that there are not

Fifty-five tons of pears have been
taken in by the cannery. One carload

“ There is one thing in particular of
which we are proud, and that is that
all o f our fruit has been graded one
rate higher by the buyer than was
quoted by the Association. This shows
that we have started right and insures
us a ready market for t e future.
“ Although we are not yet prepared
to give figures in regard to the year s

FOREST GROVE BAND
Th;u the hard work o f Samuel Glenn
Morgan o f Pacific Univeis.ty, Forest
Grove may now boost for a real first
class band. At various times in the
past a band has done thorough work in
this city and no one wili fail to recog
nise the important place which such an
organization will hold in the community
life. There seems ample reason to be
lieve tnat this band will exceed any
which has played in Forast .Grove in
years. The first thing o f importance
in the forming o f a band is the instru
mentation, which should be well bal
anced and reasonably large. The next
point for concineraiion is that o f a
leader, and finally the question o f music
and good instruments, must be settled.
1 Every instrument essential to an A-
number-one band, will be played in
this organization. The membership for
the winter will be between twenty and
thirty. At a recent meeting, Mr. Mor
gan o f P. U. '17, a man to whom much
gratitude is due for his efforts toward
the organizing of the band, was unan-
imously elected business manager.
