Pocullur and mysterious conditions have combined to make the clam lu diuitry for tho latter part of 1916 and up to the present tlmo of this year, a rank failure. Usually the Fall und Spring seasons yield large quantities of luscious, bivalves; this season, however, clams have been so imiall that they , have proved of no commercial value and Clatsop Beach canneries havo not been receiving enough to Justify running the plant. In tho past few months, the sea has been jinusuully rough, and It Is pre sumed by export clam diggers that tho bivalves have moved further out, on tho continental shelf.
