Pathologist Returns With Word That
Hood River Scare Was All for
Naught Some Incompetent Per
son Passed on Diseased Tree and
Named It Blight Says Large Crop
There but Rogue Looks Good.
As near as it is possible to get a
government official to state, Profes
sor P. J. O'Gara, who returned Sat
urday from Hood River, says Rogue
River ha3 the best of Hood River as
n fruit growing section when this
j'ear's crop is considered. Bub the
professor says it would never do for
him to make such a statement.
"However," he continued, "Rogue
River will lose nothing by n compari
son of crops at this time with Hood
"There is. absolutely no blight at
Hood River. Some person stated
that he knew there was blight there
but it proved a false alarm. I warned
them to keep n weather cj-e open,
however, as tho blight is spreading
in Wnlln Wnlla and other Washing
ton fruit centers nnd will eventually
reach Hood River, but if care is
taken there is nothing to lose.
"Hood River will probably shpi
500 cars of fruit this season.
When tho professor reached home
he found telegrams calling him to
Roseburg and to California.
