XEWELL TELLS APPLEMEX TO ENLARGE ORCHARDS President of the Horticultural Society Retums From a Trip East Find the Oregon Product the Standard of Quality Says No Danger of Over Production. Portland. Apple growers in this state need have no fear that the in dustry is likely to be overdone. The demand for Oregon apples exceed! the supply in some sections tenfold. That was the announcement of Wil bur K. Newell, president of the State Board of Horticulture, who returned yesterday from a six weeks' trip, dur ing which time he visited the apple orchards of New England, New York, Virginia, the Middle West and Colo rado. Mr. Newell left Portland about June 1 for the purpose of ascertaining the conditions In the various apple-growing districts in the east and to satisfy himself whether or not there was danger that the Oregon product would eventually lose Its eastern mar ket. Mr. Newell's investigations were in every way favorable to the expan sion of this industry. In all the fruit sections visited by him he found the Oregon apple regarded as the stand ard and in none of the orchards were the methods employed in any way superior to those In use here. "The sole purpose of my visit," said Mr. Newell last night, "was to acquaint myself with the conditions prevailing in other fruitgrowing dis tricts. Not a few of the local grow ers have feared that the apple grow ing business was likely to be over dene, and some have hesitated about enlarging their orchards. I am sat isfied that Oregon apples will al ways find a ready sale at good prices. Wherever I went I found our apples were considered the standard. Their quality was known everywhere. Eastern Orchards I)creasln?. "In the Mississippi valley, instead of Increasing the number of orchards the area is slowly decreasing. "The best orchards I saw were those in western New York and the mountainous region of Virginia. Some very good apples are grown there, but they do not get the prices in New York that our apples command. The growers there copy our methods New England apples are very fine In fla vor, where they are properly cared for. "The question up to -the apple growers of this state Is not shall we put In more trees, but how can we get better methods of marketing, so that the consumer In the large eastern cit ies can get our apples at a little more reasonable price? While I was in Washington I had an interview with Secretary Wilson, and he told me the growers of this state are not produc ing a tenth of the number of apples they should. He said that the peo ple of Washington, D. C, would eat ten times as many Oregon apples If they could get them at a reasonable price. Only a few Oregon apples are sold there, and those command such a high price that few people can af ford them. The prevailing price is 40 cents for a half peck. People much prefer apples to oranges or ba nanas, but when the price of apples exceeds the price of those fruits peo ple will buy but few apples. Competition In East. "I do not wish to give the impres sion that we have no competition in the east, for we have. The growers in Virginia, New York and Colorado are our competitors, but our apples cost more. What I want to tell the growers here is to, grow more apples and sell them at lower prices. There will always be markets for all the ap ples we can ship away. The apple crop Is lighter this year throughout the United States than last year--and last year was by no means a heavy crop. Nearly all the apple re gions run from 20 to 70 per cent of a normal crop, with an average of 60 per cent. This will insure very good prices for all the fruit we have this year. At no season In recent years has the crop been so uniformly light as It is this year." Sees Mother Grow Young. "It would be hard to overstate the wonderful change In my mother since she began to use Electric Bit ters," writes Mrs. W. L Gilpatrlck of Danforth, Me. "Although past 70 she seems really to be growing young again. She suffered untold misery from dyspepsia for 20 years. At last she could neither eat, drink nor sleep. Doctors gave her up, and all remedies failed till Electric Bitters worked such wonders for her health."
