I In the face of unseasonable precipi
tation, making it necessary for crews
of pickers to work between showers for
the past two weeks, apule growers
have made fair progress in harvesting
their crop. A canvass of the vallev
shows that more than one third of the
apples have been picked and are under
cover. It is estimated that more than
i!0 per cent of the crop has already
been packed. The Association has al
ready received 100,000 boxes of packed
apples, ana approximately the same
number have been received by other
shipping concerns. AIout 175 carloads
have been shipped from here by all
As harvest progresses growers con
tinue to place the total yield of the
season at 1,200,000 boxes. 60 per cent
of last season. The crop will be almost
60 per cent Newtowns, which is con
sidered a fortunate condition, as ship
pers expect the heaviest demand for
boxed apples to materialize about the
Christmas holidays, when the heavy
yield of eastern districts is off the mar
kets. At present, shippers sy, the
apple market was never dulller for this
season of the year.
Grower! continue to call for more
help. As a result of publicity given
through the Oregonian more than 100
additional apple pickers arrived Tues
day. Most of them came over the
Highway by automobile. Many grow
ers are picking their apples as fast as
possiblle, stacking them away in orch
ard boxes in parking houses. The work
Of packing the fruit out will be con
tinued later. This custom, it is said,
will enable harvest hands who desire it
to prolong a protitahle season, working
in packing houses as soon as the pick
ing is over.
Toward the latter part of last week
growers in some districts were annoyed
by activities of labor agitators of the
I. W. W. order. Men, well dressed,
apparently foreigners, by their exhor
tations at packing sheds and orchards,
for nine hours' pay for an eight hour
day, caused several growers to lose
most of their pickers. The agitators
seem to have grown les., however, and
the hope is expressed that the harvest
will advance without any labor trou
bles. The class of help that has been
coming the past several days is of a
high type of citizensip, it is dec-lured.

had prevented Mrs. Acheson from
starting. She was gone. Still Mr.
Acheson was not worried, expecting to
see his wife arrive after failing to meet
him. Hut after he and Mr. Harton had
eaten Mr. Acheson grew alarmed. He
called Leslie Hutler. C. H. Vaughan
and Rev. Hoddv joined the party which
returned to Mosier and searched -ill
roads but the new Highway. That was
searched until a plank obstruction was
reached. It was seen that no car had
gone over the planks. After midnight
Mr. Harton and Mr. Acheson caught an
automohile and rode to Rowena, the
others of the party returning here.
They walked back over the new road
toward Mosier. They found Mrs. Ach
eson about 5.30 o'clock about a half
mile east of Mayerdale. She had taken
a detour around the plank obstruction
and thus the searchers lost her trail.

Commercial dob Sends Out Urgtat tetter
To All Members (o Attend the
Portland Conference
Hopes of apple growers and shippers,
who had anticipations of a possible
modification of freight rates on applet
after the recent conference with rail
way executives at Yakima, were
da hed Friday when J. Curtis Robin
son, traffic manager of the Northwest
ern Fruit Kxchange, wired that he had
reeived word from It. H. Countis, repre
senting the railroads that no requests
for lower freight would be considered.
At the Yakima meeting the rail oflici
als agreed to present the request for
lower apple freight rates at a confer
ence between Pacfiic const rail lines
and eastern rail officials at Chicago
last week. The presentation was in
effective, according to Mr. Countis'
Shippers contend the increased
freight rate is a heavy blow at the ap
ple industry. It is declared that the
failure to heed the, requests for a lower
rate will eventually mean a loss of
much tonnage by the rail lines, as
many orchards will be neglected and
allowed to die out when growers fail to
see the return of a profit.

horn Friday night. "The Society for
the Preservation and Fneouragctiun
of the Science and Practice of Iticofl

new club. The idea originated recent
ly when J. H. Fredricy returned from
h fishing trip and reptroed having
sighted a lizaro sporting a blue head
red tioov and white tail. A Pell was
purchased by a number of public spir
ited citizens, lo it was attached

Mr. Raker then made the address o:

earned the possession of the belt by his
story of a recent hold up. wherein two
men with a rille had halted his automo

McCullagh, according to the story,
stopped his car and chased the hnld-ui
man through the city, finally losing
him when the bandit crawled beneath
a freight train and disappea ed

1 he. purpose ol the meeting was a
secret to Mr. McCullagh until tht
championship belt was mentioned. He
accepted the symbol graciously and de
clared that a future possessor of the
belt would have toirove himself by
real story.
Mr. Fredricy, Mr. Raker and Mr.
McCullagh were made regents of the
new organization. I hey will pass on
the claims of future applicants for the
champion-hip belt. Mr. Fredricy
inuwluetorv address r riday night was
a ram of eloquence. He was like unto
a new automobile. He climbed to
heights with a suavity something to be
compared to the smooth running of a
new and powerful motor. He dipped
down gentle slopes and skimmed over
the level places. Only once ilid he
skid, when he glided by the obstruction
of an unfamiliar word
Mr. Fredricy 's ad fress, appropos of
this and that and the other, was in part
as follows :
Spring with its verdant freshness has
come and gone. The summer's sun has
turned the fields of waving green to
amber and the golden grams have been
garnered. The blooms on the trees
have turned to lucious fruits, the wild
flowers have gone to sleep and the
song birds are winging their way to
the southland, but nature's painter is
still on the scene, for the hills are
ablaze with color, red, green and goM.
Soon the wintry winds will be upon us
and the golden leaves will glide silent
ly to rest upon the bOBoell of Mother
Karth. Then nature's painter will cov
er the landscape with a blanket of
lieautiful white and retire to await the
coming of spring.
We are not unlike the seasons. In
the springtime of life we come into
this world, "a feather of love dropped
into the lap of motherhood," our tot
tering footsteps are guided and our
prattling tongues arc taught words of
endearment by parents' love ; then
comes the summer-childhood, when the
mysteries of life are unfolded to us
arid we love and yearn to be loved :

A circular letter to many citizens
was Bent out by the Commercial Club,
asking all citizens here who could pos
sibly make the. trip tomorrow to attend
the conference. Hood River citizens
will urge the State Highway Commis

ter follows:
"We are advised that the State
ilihtfway Commission is considering
the postponment of the Mount Hood
Loop Road. The United States gov
ernment has already let contracts for
about six miles of the Loop road and
has agreed to match dollar for dollar
any amount appropriated by the, Ore
gon Sta'e Highway Commission.
"The Mount Hood Loop Road is one
of our greatest assets, and aside from
its scenic beauty, it affords practically
the only means for the forestry service
to fight rireB. At present the (Wflght
ers have to use such traite as are
available in getting their equipment
where it will be of service. With the
loop road equipment can be taken
where necessary promptly, and the
enormous losses now caused by fire can
be reduced to a minimum.
"People living in southeastern Ore
gon will be afforded a route to Portland
when the loop road is completed1. We
want as many as possible to come via
Hood River, but the Columbia River
Highway will attract them one way at
IcaM, so we will get them coming or
"If for any reason the building of
the loop road is delayed, the federal
government will spend the funds now
available for the loop on some other
project, and we will be in Joat the
same position three years from now as
we are today.
"You are appointed a committee of
one to attend a meeting of the' State
Highway Hoard at the county court
house Friday, October 16 at 10 o'clock
in the morning to protect any delay in
the loop road. We want Hood River
represented by a large delegation.
