War Rages Between Canneries, Growers! Over Price Apricot growers .fin; Contra Costa and Alameda - Counties were far from happy yesterday oyer prices being paid by canneries for their crops. ' v In the Brentwood area, quoted prices ranging front $70 a ton for "orchard run") fruit to $75 for larger sizes were not high enough to cover growing costs, orchardists complained. Washington Township growers were preparing to launch their annual price war with canners, who reportedly offered $85 per ton in that districtj According to Roy Clark ot Irvington, chairman of the apricot section of the California State Farm Bureau. ranchers would be f advised to dry their , crops. -unless $100 or better is offered.

The DiabloValley apricot crop will total about 90Q0 tons' while the total for the Brentwood area is estimated to ibebetween 10,000 and 12,000 tons. ' j I Growers in the Centerville area, "indignant" at the $85 offer, threatened to dry or sell on a "pick-your-own" basis for six cents a pound that would return them $120 a ton. . fl Orchardists declared that higher prices were needed to cover increased costs of cultivating, irrigating, thinning and picking theapricots this season.

But of all the ships he commanded or served aboard and they ranged in 38 .years from 'a World War I destroyer to the famed old aircraft carriers Lang-ley and Saratoga the favored one and the best remembered is th .Intrepid, the one he brought back early in 1944. MADE HISTORY 7 Sprague was a captain then and had had command : of the 27,00d-ton Essex class carrier from the day of her commissioning. Six months to the day after she was commissioned though, the Intrepid made her name in the history of World War U, She took a torpedo and should have sunk. Instead she became the first . square-rigged aircraft carrier In the VS. Jtfavy and limped 2000 miles back across the Pacific to Pearl Harbor with the help of a . 5000-tjquare-foot sail, jury rigged orr1 the forecastle out of odds and ends. " The torpedo blew a hole 40-feet wide in the Intrepid's hull aft and immediately over her rudder. The force of the blast was so great it sent steel propellers up through the armored" flight deck and shook a '40-rom. gun tub and its nine-man crew and' a number of airplanes into the sea. It accordioned two great steel decks together and killed a total of 12 men, SUIP CRIPPLED ; . ! The rudder jammed and the ship yawed badly while steaming on its port propellers. Above, the sail on the forecastle helped - keep her on a slightly straighter course on ner slow voyage. The Intrepid displays the battered, sail as a victory trophy as a fleet' of tugs shoved her to a Pearl Harbor berth, . . The admiral, S8, decided to retire when it was time for reassignment from command of the fleet air forces. He plans to get in some golf with his wife, Evelyn, and to spend some of his time with another hobby, photography. ,-,,.-.. A-, - .. ., .. Every Age Can Wear I J DR.
