One of Leading Prod

While a large proportion of the
products raised in this section fin
ally reaches the market in a frozen
package, but comparatively fey lo
cal people have had the privilege of
purchasing processed stuff for con
sumption. However, it will not be
the case for very long, according to
a report brought back from the
eastern markets this week by Geo.‘
Tilbury, who has just returned from
Chicago where he attended a can
ners convention.
More and more fresh fruits and
vegetables are being processed by
the freezing method, Mr. Tllbury
reports, and the old style, tin and
glass packages are being done away
with as rapidly as arrangements
for' the new goods can be installed.
Several advantages are noted for
the freezing process. All the color
and flavor of the fresh product is
retained in freezing. The process
is less expensive and will make fresh
products available at any season of
the year. thus establishing a non
fluctuating retail price; packages
are more attractive, occupy less
storage and transportation arrange
ments and keep as long as the low
temperature is maintained.
This latter feature has been one
of the reasons for not using the
freezing method sooner, but in this
day refrigeration is standard equip

Congressman Hill I
Plugs Dam at i
ymafifla Rapids
' Radio Address Points‘
Out Necessity for Fur
ther Development
A speech favoring the further de
velopment of the Columbia. was
given over the Columbia broadcast
on February 131: by Congressman
Knute Hill of Prosser.
Telling of the necessity for the
dams, now under constructimA end
proposed, the congressman said:
“The result of development of the
Columbia will be threefold: First.
cheap electric power for the house
hold and the farm in agricultural
sections, and for the homes of la
borers, the two groups who most
need, and may I say, most deserve
the necessities and comforts of life.
“Secondly, cheap electric power
for the development of our untold
soil and mineral resources—the sur
face of whichhasonly been scratch
ed. For example, Idaho has the
richest deposit of phosphate rock
for fertilizer in the world, estimated
at five billion tons; the Cascades
have gold, silver, lead and anthra
cite—one vein estimated at fifty
million tons; fifty-seven different
varieties of minerals which will re
quire three-billion-eight-hundred
kilowatts annually for twenty-five
years for processing purposes. ‘
Thirdiy, attractively reasonable
rates for electric power which will
be an inducement to capital to con
struct extensive factories where mil
lions of laborers will find employ
ment. ‘
“This will relieve the congested
sections of many of the large cities
of the midwest and east, and should
be welcomed by them. The limit-i
less natural resources 0! the Pas
ciric Northwest both from the farm‘
and mine will furnish theraw ma-;
terial while the millions of labor-{
ers will furnish a market for the
products of the farm and lactory.‘
The climate is so healthful, the
soil so fertile, the scenery so splen
did, and the opportunities so great
that home life in the Northwest will
be real and attractive to all who
heed Horace Greeley's advice “Go
West, young man.’ ” ‘
Chain Letters Again
The chain letter craze» is here
again. This time it's not a. dime,
but a tea towel—twenty-seven of
them, according to the dope. House
wife gets a letter telling her to send
a tea towel to the top name on the
list and write three letters with
similar instructions. Each of the
three then repeat the stunt with
the first one receiving a tea towel
from each of the 27 so contacted.
Funny thing about it is that it
seems to work.
