Up Fallen Fruit
EDINBURG. Nor. 8.—J. W. Pat
terson, federal fruit inspector, has
issued a statement urging orchadists
to keep the fallen fruit off the
ground in order to destroy one

grove inspection.
\isitors to the Valley who desire
to return to their homes with small
quantities of fruit are warned to
have this fruit properly inyreeted
and tagged before leaving the Val*

established at Encino and all fruit
that is not properly tagged is being
confiscated department of agricul
ture inspectors.
So far, no carloads of mixed fruit
have moved out of the Edinburg
Pharr-McAlien district. Seven of
these cars have moved from McAllen
and one each out t Pharr and Edin
burg. More than half this amount
of fruit has moved by motor truck.
