Fruit For The Years Ahead A reader recently wrote the editor, asking this important question —"What kind of a /rult growing program can you recommend for a general farm within trucking die- farce of three or four average conn- seat towns?" Wo like to at- empt answers to questions .on this iibject because it lies close to the cart of many pressing farm proh- ems and undeveloped opportuni- ics. Hers is the condensed scope of our reply: Apple, peach, plum and cherry growing is gradually moving into commercial regions, where soils and climate join with large-scale marketing operations to form the SMITH *»«IBROS. COUGH DROPS CONTAIN VITAMIN A basis of success in the Industry Therefore, unless the grower Is willing to specialize in these fruits ho will do well to restrict thoi planting to home requirements foi the future, plus sufficient numbers of trees to provide supplies his lo cal markets may absorb. Compe tition from commercial regions usually dominates even the smal local market In these tour fruits. Pear growing has been widely In fluenced by the prevalence of pea blight, a disease that has destroy ed millions of trees over most o the former pear regions of. the United, States. Advice pertainlni, to growing apples, peaches, plums and cherries may likewise be ap plied to pears, in addition to the fact that one or more of the blight resistant varieties should be plant ed in all cases. At least a (ev. desirable varieties should be grown for home use. It Is among the so-called small fruits, raspberries, dewberries blackberries, strawberries, cur rants, gooseberries and blueberries that the general farmer or gard ener finds the highest prospects for EARLY WEEK SPECIALS At Our Lower-Price Self-Service -Thrift Market Sand 7 N.

Waldeck, his wife, and Ur. Frederick Fox (left to right), were among the four people reported stranded in the British Guiana jungle in South America. They, with William Astor Chanley, comprised the 13th expedition to search for Paul Redfern, aviator missing since 1927. Redfern •was recently declared legally dead. the next few years. Tbeae fruits require^ less investment in mone> and time to bring them to produe live age; few local urban markets are adequately supplied with them; competition from larger coin- mercial growing regions does uo'l so adversely affect local demands as these fruits do not permit long shipment, nor does the northwan movement of the season find compe tition remaining over more than a week or two. Starting with strawberries in May, the maturing season gradu ally moves through dewberries raspberries, blackberries and th other small fruits in ordered pro gression, furnishing early sources of revenue and not over-lapping -enough to necessitate varying amounts of harvest labor and equip ment. By trucking these early fruits northward, the grower gain the advantage of the maturing sea son, selling his berries where loca production hns not yet appearei 0:1 the markets. To illustrate this vital point, by marketing ttiesi berries 100 miles to the north, ap proximately two weeks is gained thereby permitting sale of the bulk of the particular crop before the local growers of the northward re gions have begun to harvest theii crops. Thus, geography plays no mlnoi role in raising small fruits. We" drained, humus-filled soils, use o high grade planting stock, propel cultural practices, and an eye foi sustained marketing outlets are ini porlant steps in planning mid starting a sound small fruit bus! ness. None of these factors is be youd the reaonable scope of the average small farmer. Buttons are important in the mode.
