If the people of Forest Urove
do not now know the products of
their bountiful state, they will
have no excuse for not knowing
after April 8th, if they pay heed
to a program to be put on jointly
by the members of the Woman’s

At a conference between mem
bers of these two organizations,
held Monday, it was decided to
devote a week to boosting Oregon
products. While the program is
not yet complete, enough features
have been planned to insure a
busy week, beginning Monday,
April 3d, and ending Saturday,
Every merchant in Forest Grove
will be asked to devote a part
of his show window space during
the week to exhibits of Oregon
products and Tuesday evening,
April 4th, there will be a program
and banquet to further advertise
Oregon products of the soil and
sea and various goods manufac
tured in the state. Only Oregon
products will be served at the
banquet. In connection with the
banquet, a program advertising
these goods will b e rendered.
The place for this feature will be
announced in next week’s Express,
as will other features of the affair.
Tell your friends about this ex
hibit and banquet and ask those
living in other towns to come to
Forest Grove during the week.
