This is the year that the young mem-'
berg of the family will not be obliged
to use those of an older brother or
sister. There- is a new deal all around.
The. state law provides that the school
book commission, -may select -the text
books, of the public: schools. A general
new line of tiook has been chosen for
the reason-that, educators believe text
books of a few years ago are not up to
the times and that improvements are
made in school books. as well as in bus
iness methods! "'. '

When the 1919 legislature passed a
law requiring county assessors to secure
statistics as to the acreage planted tn
grains, fruit and berries,' it afforded
means whereby each county as well as
the state would know 'its . standing In
agricultural and horticultural products.
This 'law was formulated and offered
to the legislature by the Marion county
delegation. Knowing that . California
was sending Oregon's finest products
under' ' Del Monte ' 'and other labels,and
with no statistics j(o. show eastern buy
ers that Oregon was really a great fruit
raisin state, it was -decided at a state
meeting of horticultui'tilists about one
year ago to favor the passage of a law
by which county assessors should com
pile exact statistics! and that the fig
ures from each county should be filed
with the off ice' of. the .tax commission.
In Marion county the total acreage in
farms as assessed , by Ben West, cou
ty; assessor, totaled 324,505, Of ; this
acreage, there Was in- all kinds of grains,
fruits, berries ''and vegetables 188,850
acres, showing that more than half of
t ho farm' ' land assessed iii the ' county
was under cultivation this spring. '
Marion county 1 is! Btrongly an oats
producing 'county, as tlie total acreage
as shown bv Mr. West's official report
is 64,413. Wheat' ranks second in acre
age with $$,255 planted in winter wheat
and '12,435 in ' spring wheat, 'a "total of
Next in importance to oats and wheat
is the hay crop which totals 25,598 acres,
with an. extra 1202 acres in wild or
marsh hay. .. , '.
. About one year ago Robert C. Pautus,
manager of the Salem Fruit Union, esti
mated tho prune 'acreage in this valley
tit. something over 70Q0 acres. Statistics
1.9 gathered by the assessor of the coun
tyand now a" part" of the official coun
ty records show that-iKTMarioli , county
alone, there is 6611 acres in bearing
prunes and' 1695 acres no-bearing. Not
withstanding the fact that prune :trocs
for planting arc selling all the way from
50 to 75 cents each, it is understood a
large acreage will be planted this com
ing winter and spring.

. Oingham dresses will cost more, next
spring than .they do today. This is the
disturbing news brought to the mer
chants of the city in today's quota
tions. The" big manufacturing plants
in the east have already established
prices for well known brands of ging
ham and as these prices are- maintain- i
ed, there isn't any doubt about it. ' 1
- Oingham that cost about 12 cents
during those happy - years known: as
before the war," tvill retail on Sa
lem drygoods counters at about 40
cents a yard. Theso same ginghams are
now being sold at from 30 to 35 cents.
It is on samples for spring shipment
that the manufacturers announce the
advance in price.
And- even that old standby, known
as standard colored table damask, or
as the past generation knew it, "tur
key red tablecloth," will take an ad
vance in price that is suggestive of
silk, ".before the war." Manufacturing
plants iii -the east controlling" the out
put of colored table damask are al
ready quoting 90 cents a yard whole
sale with tho disquieting news that
tho market is firm . and advancing.
These fitfui-os are vouched- for bygone
of the leading drygoods merchants of
Helix, in Umatilla county, with two
paived streets, is the smallest city in
Oregon to boast such improvements.
