Prune Packers Busy
Receiving Buying Orders
Prune packers are about the. busiest
men in the city all due to the fact that
the buying and selling price opened
up this year at the same time. Ordin
arily the business is strung along over
sevoral months, but according to the
government's orders, everything open
ed up Oil July 15.
Eastern buyers who thought to break
the market and not pay tho govern
ment's maximum price are having hard
luck. A big crop has been reported and
working on this basis the eastern job
bers were somewhat backward about
paying the maximum, figuring that
the packers horo and in the valley
would be overloaded
It seems that the eastern men fig
ured all wrong and that sales here
have been mado only on the govern
ment' maximum, and that up to date,
no packer has seen fit to contract at
a lower prico. Tho Drager Fruit Co.,
here m well as other ncking plants,
have been ordered by tho government
to hold all of the 50-fli puck for the
government' disposal. This will figure
this year about one-fourth of the crop.
The only thing that is iu doubt now
is a to the size of the crui as it is
estimated many things may happen be
fore it is harvested. From the present
outlook, the crop 'will be about twice
as large as that of ono .your ago in this

Decision Of Supreme Court
On Budget Law Effects
At a meeting of the school board of
directors held last evening, there was
some differences of opinion in regard
to the erection of a building to care
for the metal trade working depart
ment, to be established rnls fall
H L. Clark, favored the erection of
a building of brick or cement that
would cost the district about $5000.
Tho majority of the botrd favored a
wooden or corrugated iron temporary
building figuring that such a tempo?
ary structure would ar,srer ail the pro
sent purposes and that the permanent
building could, be erected later when
building materials wero not at the pre
sent top figure.
When Director Clark brought up the
legality of the board spending money
for the metal trades school, it was
shown that from a legal standpoint,
the question had been passed on by At
torney General Brown, on request of
State Superintendent Churchill. The
opinion covered the ground taking the
stand that the metal trade working
derailment O be 'Mganize.l thi fall
would fuif irrtV? the head oi bet
terment of the ligh school. C-h) board
also had the written opinion of Smith &
Shields, school attorneys, that as long
as the board incurred no indebtedness,
it could legally erect tho buildings, uut
that it was not authorized, on the other
hand, to incur a Itcbt against the dis
trict more than the budget called for.
Iri a question ns to the budget prop
osition, Director W. C. Winslow
bnnght out th, point that in a recfn'
decision of the supremo court in the
case of Martin versus Gilliam county,
the budget law of 1815 was void, ex
cepting as it applied to counties." The
question had been brought up as to
whetner money could be uwd for the
mrtHl trades work, as U had not beeu
voted in tho budget. Now according to
the opinion of tho supreme court, the
new budget law is null and Void.
These questions were brought out
from the fact that Director H. L. Cl-irk-
was opposed to the new departure" for
boys work thinking the whole thing
and the expenditure of money was ille
gal. The majority of the board, backed
by the opinions of the supreme court,
State Superintendent Churchill and
Smith & Shields, thought otherwise.
On motion of Chauncey Bishop, bids
will be advertised for covering two
types of building, one of wood and the
other of corrugated iron, both to havo
