FOR APPLE MARKET
Hood River, Ore., June 8. Joseph
Stetnhardt, member of the fruit com
mission firm of Slelnhardt Kelley
ot New York, after visiting the sev
eral fruit sections In Oregon and
Washington, spent the day at Hood
River In conference with the Apple
Growers' association.
"The action of Fod Commissioner
Hoover In placing the apple on the
list of food necessities Is the salva
tion ot the entire Industry this year."
said Mr. 8telnhardt "The railroads
will now be compelled to furnish
cars to move the fruit tonnage to
eastern and other markets and the
growers need have no fear over the
matter ot car shortage for the handl
ing of thta season's apple crop.
"If the embargo waa lifted this
season. I do not think that it would
materially help the boxed apple In
dustry of the northwest, tor the rea
son that bottoms would be ao scarce
and freight so high, that only a small
portion ot the fruit would find Its
way Into foreign markets.
"Apple will be king this year.
Sugar Is high; cant and fruit Jars
will he hard to secure, consequent
ly there will be a tremendous thort
age of canned fruits and berries with
which to enter the winter season, and
for this reason the apple will be the
one fruit that must take the place
ot the canned fruit."

OF ARMY DUTIES
The following excerpt from a let
ter written by Robert F. Doerner
will be of interest to the many
friends of the boys mentioned. Young
Doerner Is a member of Company B,
First Provisional Aviation School
Squadron now stationed at Fort Sam
Houston, Texas.
"Ase yet we are not restricted
in any kind of correspondence. But
there is a bunch that is leaving
for some place where, they know
not. Even the persons In charge
will receive their Instructions only
every hundred miles or thereabouts.
Indefinitely, the end of the Journey
la France.
"I am with Charlie Holland, Clif
ton Booth, Bert Coffenberry. Le Roy,
Newton Gotcher. Ray Bailey, Ray
Briggs and Ernest Fry.
"As long as I am not sick and In
as much as I can do no good by 'kick
ing' I take what ever comes as a
matter of course. At present we are
taken care of very well indeed.
"At present our company Is on
guard duty. We are on guard for
24 hours (that is, 50 out ot 160 of
us) out of 36 hours. The 24 hours
that we are on duty, the 50 of us
are divided Into three reliefs of 15
men each; and ot the other five
there Is one corporal to each relief,
and two sergeants who divide up the
24 hours between them. We go on
guard at 6 p. m. and are relieved by
the next 50 ment at 6 p. m. the next
day. At six o'clock the first relief
of 15 men are posted on 15 posts,
relieving the men of the old guard.
They walk their posts until eight
o'clock, when the second relief of 15
men come on; they In turn walk
their post until 12 o'clock. Thus
during the 24 hours on duty, each
guard has two hours on and four
hours off. alternately.
"This guard duty Is a pretty ser
ious thing, if a guard goes to sleep
