and good export demand in the Sprint

prospective hort crop, misled many
early in the iieason. Opening liigh

The inadequate toragi facilities and
limited car supply in the face of in
creesed production in the Northwest is
demanding the serious consideration of
growers anil p flippers. Lack of suffi
cient storage space caused heavy losse:
this year. Barw, garages, stores and,
in fact, every available space was tilled
to OVefflowing With packed and nil
parked "fruit. While some fruit was
frosen in these temporary and common
storages during the extreme cold
weather in December, the heaviest
shrinkage and deterioration was proba
bly caused by poor or no ventilation
and overheating to keep out the frost.
The very large Hood River crop,
which gave promise of being the best
in yi ars, with inadequate facilities for
handling, caused beav.v losses to some
eiowers. Storages, common. cJd and
t mporary, were crowded to utmost
ca aeity, and growers were forced to
keep much of the crop in whatever
itoraga they could find on the farm.
The i ar shortage was serious and
cauffld much los. Some fruit was
fro.en on the tio in October, but the
heaviest loss by freezing occurred in
December, when radically all apples
i;i temporary sturi ;e were either frosen
or spoiled by hi iters, and repacking
with a big shrinkage was general. By
products plant look a big portion of
thi damaged i ni t.
While the quality of the fruit was
good it did not Keep well, principally
in cause of the many adverse conditions
incident to handling. Newtowns pre
dominated and the SpitzenburgS make
un about 06 i ' ent of the crop. The
balance is composed chiefly of Jona

The telegram said :
"1 have always been in favor of the
exclusion of Japanese immigration and
the prevention of Asiatic ownership of
land and natural resources. The anti
dote to sggreaaive action against us by

alternative, gigantic armament, and a
