try in a small way some of the
things which they wish to try. !f
they fail, they will have learned for

than was anticipated.
Cherry crops are unusually heavy
in some sections single orchards in
some cases being able to supply one
or more canneries a full pack.
The labor problem Is not going to
be serious as In the vicinity of towns
there will be a large supply of unem
ployed family labor.
There Is going to be absolute nec

between these Industries, the
proilnrers and the labor employed.
