State Wide Organization to
Work In Interests of
Complying' with the request of people
interested in bettering Oregon fruit con
ditions, Governor Withycombe today has
appointed a state wide tnnt commit
tee. Its chief purpose is to assist in
raising funds which will be utilized in
organizing the unorganized fruit sec
tions of the state. This will be done in
co-operation with the Oregon Agricul
tural College which has signified its
willingness to cooperate in the work bv
utilizing the machinery already in ex
istence for such activity and also put
ting trained men in the field.
By definitely organizing the fruit
sections both as regards growers and
selling agencies, it will be possible for
Oregon to come under the new federal
government plan and reap its many ad
vantages. The government plan con
templates a uniform contract system
throughout all tho fruit growing dis
tricts, which in effect wil 1 permit
organized selling to protect the inter
ests of the growers without conflicting
with anti-price fixing regulations.

Unofficial information has been re
ceived by Judge Bushey that the Polk
county court has decided upon a ecu-!
crete bridge across the river at this
city and will proceed to take soundings
anil mnno tne plans tor a concrete struc
ture. The 1'ollt county court is report
ed to have held a meeting last week
and named an engineer to handle the
proposition for them. It appears that
the Polk county court was not satis
fied with the plans for a steel bridge as
submitted by the -state highway engin
eering department and has been inform
ed that a concrete bridge can be put in
for less money than the estimate on the
steel bridge. The state highway engin
eers reported that the bottom or the
river would not support n heavy con
crete bridge without sinking the foun
dations for the piers so deeply that the
cost would be excessive. The Polk
county court, however, appears to be
seeking information as to the structure
of the river bed from their own sources.
