salvation was in producing bettor veg

just before, he began his Address, he
went to a grocery store and bought an
assortment of onions, beets and cab
bages. 'I'ho onions were small anil r.prouty,
the cabhago was uieiliuin and mushy
ami the beets vveie ol' the small variety
.tnd they were brought to the Salem
market and sold to a grocer. If these
were a sauplo of what the average
fanner was raising, i'rof. 'ISouquet
thought the said farmers were in need
of consideraide education.
"Wo need a letter potato seed in

Finally, by forcing them to hold on

successful. Prof. Muepherson told the
farmers they could not expect to have
the commercial clubs fight their bat
tles, and he did not believe the farm
ers would solve their problems by
hanging on to business men's associ
ation. If farmers want to organize a pro
duce (onipiny, they should have a
paid manager, just liko the Snlom
Poultry and Egg Circle. "The busi

interests are of two different kinds,"
said Mr. Macpherson. Kach should

they were the hardest men in the

countered in organizing the Oregon

finding a market. I'rof. ilaepherson:
farmers should learn to grade and
pack their produce. Co-operative stores
fail because farmers do not have a
standard of produce. Tf farmers had a
local brgnnizuion at each shipping

them to glade and properly pack, there

SALEM EXPECTED IN "LEAGUE
Another letter has been received by
City Baseball League officials from
John 1). Turner, the Salem, Ore., attor
ney, who is visiting in (.reggs. Pa.
Mr. Turner expects to be back in
Oregon before the bust-ball season
He is extremely eager to have his
city represented in the league and as
Salem and McMinuville both drew large
crowds last summer, it would not be
a surprise to him to see both of theie
cities taken in the circuit. Turner
wants the schedule arranged so that
there will be a team in Salem every
Sunday with them taking a. trip to Mc
Minuville and Portland occasionally.
He feels sure that the Capital City
would enjoy good attendance all sea
son. Turner advocates a rubj to prohibit
the playing in the league of ballplay
ers under contract to any league with
a rating higher than 1). ' He expects to
use the same class of players which
composed the Senators last season. Sa
lem had a team consisting of home
boys alone and were huid to meat.
Turner adds in his letter, that he will
abide by anything that the directors
of the city circuit decide to do.
The City League meeting w ill be held
