The creamery plant is now being re­
modeled considerably and enlarged for
the coming ice cream season. Oper­
ated cooperatively by orchardlata aud
business folk, the Institution has made
a marked success. ice cream machin­
ery will be added this year, enabling

creamery will be able to turn out SUU
| halloas of ice cream daily,
/ The creamery has received a ship­
ment of insulated liags, which have a-
capacity of live gallons, to be used the
coming summer in shipping ice cream
to those patrons who have refrigera­
tion systems. More aud more mechan­
ical refrigeration plants are being

«Team parlor. E. A. Race, at Mosier,
recently installed sueh equipment, and
before the summer season begins, it is
said, most of the places of Hood River
will have mechanical refrigeration.
The lee cream business of the cream­
ery showed a substantial increase last
' year, and it is anticipated by the man­
agement that the business for 1U20 will
make progress.
Among other improvements observed
at the creamery plant is the removal
of the lce cream machinery to the west
end of the main room. A passage door
has been cut in the refrigeration room,
lxirge tanks have been conBtrueU-d
overhead, and the ice cream mix will
be fed into the freexere by gravity.

has been equipped with more refrigera­
tion coils, and it can now be brought
to a temperature of 20 degrees below

hs cold as 32 below.
The creamery building continues to
draw compliments from visiting cream­
