Conditions within the industry are the best in many years, as indicated by low inventories, a short oncoming crop, and by an active trade demand at increasing prices. These conditions warrant a field price for 1936 crop Thompsons and Muscats of at least $70 per ton. (Copy of Contract Form) ANNUAL RAISIN POOL CONTRACT 1936 CROP Contract A'o.. 1036.

(BttYBHi Sl'N-MAlD RAISIN GROWERS ASSOCIATION. Bv PRESIDENT WITNESS TO SELLER'S SIGNATURE <SELLER1 ... i SELLER'S ADDRESS) out in tlupHcatc; srnil both 10 S'uii-.t/uid for \tx signature; one will be returned to grower ) Your 1936 Raisins Are Worth at Least $70 Per Ton One year ago Sun-Maid advised you that 1935 Thompsons were worth at least $60 1 per ton. Time has proved the soundness of this advice. Now Sun-Maid advises that 1936 crop Thompsons and Muscats are worth at least $70 per ton, and points out the conditions that warrant this price, DO NOT BE MISLED r Do not be misled when you are told that Sun-Maid's advance fixes the market value of the crop or that the advance represents final payment. These advances only represent substantial cash realization to provide for growers' immediate needs. Despite the fact that many growers sold their 1935 crop raisins at prices approximating Sun-Maid's average advances, Sun-Maid's final settlement with 1935 crop growers will bring them additional and gratifying returns. Sun-Maid again advises growers of the fair market value of their crop and provides them with the opportunity of securing a substantial cash advance if they are not able to realize that value by immediate sale. -MAID RAISIN GROWERS ASSOCIATION *'**&'*«..'.11 •'-',•:
