New York city, former president of the
International Apple Shippers' associa­
tion and a tnemher of the firm of May­

hundreds of producers and shippers
who instead should be stimulating de­
mand from that quarter by the most
careful attention.
In the courae of the address, Mr.
Hearty said:
“The commercial Importance of ex­
port markets dates back to 18H0, dur­
ing which time the development baa'

tion of the world. The total yearly
shipments have varied in keeping with
the extent of our crops. Export ship­
ments of the past two years represent
about 15 per rant of the total commer­
cial crops. It I« qulte impossible In
particular terms to calculate the bene­
fits that accrue to the producer of
