John Yoone. whose fathet OweoD
Younj?. is vice-president and. chairman
of! the board; of Uhe General Electric
Co.. died at the Cottaee hospital Mon
day two hours after injuries sustained
when he was run over by a locomotive
of a narrow guage railroad at the
phoenix construction camp 00. Hood
river. Mr. Young; aged 18, was here
with' John- Atwofxl. colleire mate.
Bpendinn bis vacation gaining practical
experience on the local worKaj
;;YoungAtwood.i whe witnessed the
accident, savs he thinks the boy los
bis life in saviniz "Skee," a fox terrier
doc end maacot tf the bie construction
camp The dog -was riding on the front
of the dinky engine, with the boys. The
locomotive had slowed, almost to a stop
and the do?, lumned down directly in
front of the wheels. In reaching for
him Mr. Young lost ' his balance and
himself . fell uirectly under the locomo
tive, which . crushed i his ebest Mr.
Young was a general favorite with the
men at the camp and had made - many
fiwnds in the cityj Immediate-efforts
were made to notify his father, whose
office. i jn NewvYork City.
Until his tragic death under the con
struction Jine locomotive,- few fellow
workers of the ,camp had known they
were -working beside the son of one of
the country s most influential indus
trial leaders The General Electric
Company, whose rjolicies the . father
directs from the New - York headejuar-
trs, ia among the nation's largest cor
lhe engineer stoDDed the locomotive
quickly and Mr. Young was extricated.
His body had been badly crushed. He
was taken to the-. Cottaee hospital.
and a call was sent to Guy W. Talbot
to send one of Portland s beet sur
eeona immediately to give all possible
assistance in trying to save the youth's
life. . Before, the surgeon had started
on . tnia mipsiort) information , was. re.
ceived that the youth was dead. ,'
Mr. Young was still a student in col
lege. He had been attending bt. Law
rence university in northern NewvYork
Hia father,-known as one of the 'most
democratic of the counrty's industrial
leaders, makes it fl policy ; to sec that
his children learn life from the bottom
up, -said Mr. Talbot..
When the summer "Vacation arrived
the son and a college chum, John At
wood, came to Portland to accept work
as ordinary laborers' in any position
Mr. Talbot should find for them.- lhe
young men accordingly were, sent to
the camp of the Phoenix Utility Com
pany. The job given Mr. Young was
that of materiel cheeker - lhe boys
arrived in Portland July. 5 and. went
to work at the camp a few days later.
Mr. Talbot telegraphed news of the
tragedy to the boy's parents., whose
summer home out. of New York is at
Little Point, Riverside, Conn. Mem.
bers of the family, other than the
father and mother, said Mr. Talbot,
are a brother older . than. John and . a
younger' sister
The body left Tuesday night for Fort
Plain, N. Y. The remain! were accom
paniedjby young, Atwood. The two
boys were planning to start east Sep
tember 1, traveling through Canada -on
the way back.. :
Guy w. Talbot.- president or the ra-
cifia Power & : Light Co.. and J. A.
Cranston, manager of the. General
Electric Covin Portland, motored here
Tuesday from Portland and joined the
escort of men from the construction
camp who accompanied the body from
the Anderson undertaking - parlors to
the train. Mr." Youig was a member
of Beta Theta Pi Greek letter fratern
ity as is young Atwood. Geo.. R. Wil
bur and Arthur Johnson, local mem
bers of .the fraternity, aided in details
of arrangements for shipping the body.
The tragedy left the construction
Camp and the city shocked. Mr. Young
was generally liked around the camp
and had become popular among the
young folk of the valley.
Henry Munroe. a fellow official of
the boy's father in the- General Elec
tric Co., has started, from New York
City and is expected te meet the. body
west of Chicago.

Oregon Fruit Crop Report
(F. L. Kent, U. S.. Agricultural SUt-
Except where irrigation is praeticed
it is believed that the long continued
dry weather will result in small sized
fruit (applet, pears, and prunes.) A
month ago we estimated the Oregon
commercial apple crop at 5,645 car
loads, and the commercial pear crop at
about 1,300 carloads. - The prevailing
weather conditions will quite likely re
duce these crops. Prunes continue to
drop, even in some , of the best culti
vated orchards, and: the small sises
will doubtless predominate at harvest
time. The. production of cherries was
much below- normal, particularly the
Hoyal Ann crop in the western part of
the state. The Lane. County Royal
Ann production has been estimated at
only about one third that of last year,
loganberries ripened very quick ly due
to the hot dry davi at picking time,
resulting in fruit of inferior quality.
and an abnormal demand for- pickers.
The marketed yield per acre was much
below the average this yeas. .-.
i The supply of farm labor, for the
harvest season has hardly been equal
to the. demand. The. wheat crowing
districts have drawn on the Portland
labor supply .to a considerable extent.
The Heppner district, for - instance,
''imported" about 100 men prior to
August 1, in addition to those who
came in without special request The
wage scale adopted at the .beginning of
the seaion has been fairly . well main
tained. Common . labor is be ins paid
43 to $3.50 per day.

failed in killing a deer in the past 10
years, brought in the season s first
buck, a 6-point animal yesterday. Mr.
r'regge was accompanied toahe Mount
Defiance region, where the deeriwas
killed with a single shot, by Geo. W.
Baker, Barrett orchardist Telling of
the hunt,' Mri Baker savs : -
"We eianted the -animal a little after
daybreak. First a beautiful doe walked
nimbly from the brush into the cleared
space, on one side of which we were
waiting. We watched her for a time
and then . Mr Pregge. made., a slight
noise and she made 20 feet the first
leap... Her departure., was -sudden and
exciting, j I almost wanted to let out a
yell. We 'remained absolutely quiet,
however, and soon the. buck; cam into
view. , Mr. . Pregga1 laid ,him low with
a bullet through the back of the head."
It is the opinion of C. E. Graves
that early steps must be taken to ex
