THE DAILY NEWS—5 Port Angeles, Wash., Sun., Nov. 24, 1974 Converted oranges new sugar supply? ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Florida's orange growers could boost profits by a whopping $435 million a year simply by converting their crop to sugar, a spokesman for a growers' association said Saturday. "Sugar is growing on trees," said Wilson McGee, general manager of United Growers Inc. "And because of low grower returns from the sale of Florida's Cinderella product, frozen concentrated orange Juice, I urge serious consideration of conversion of the crop into sugar." Turning orange Juice into sugar, McGee said, would increase the value of Florida's 197374 crop from $265.3 million to $700 million. For the growers, McGee said, conversion would boost the selling price of a standard 90-pound box of oranges from $1.51 to $4.20. McGee said he based his estimates on the current $70 per hundred weight wholesale price of sugar cane. Concentrate plants could convert Juice into sugar without any additional expense, McGee said. "All they've got to do is keep taking the water out of it," he explained. "This is nothing new. When they first started experimenting with orange Juice concentrate, they ended up with sugar. "The principle is the same as used in taking the juice from sugar cane and refining it into a solid." Conversion of orange Juice into sugar, McGee added, also would eliminate some of the rising costs which are plaguing the industry such as the price of cans. "The question is what do we want to do with our crop," he said. "If sugar solids are more valuable than Juice, why not market them. "I know one thing, there's no way growers can make any money the way prices are now." While the price of fertilizer, labor and other production costs have skyrocketed, the price of orange juice concentrate has remained relatively stable. "There are a lot of growers who are going to go bankrupt," McGee said.

The Salvation Army's "Dress a Living Doll" Christmas project has involved women from nine churches Weather SEATTLE (AP) — For those who envy the other man's grass, a nonprofit nature publication offers a novel opportunity to do some temporary grazing. Called "Search for Experience," it's an annual affair sponsored by Pacific Search magazine. The format is simple: experiences are auctioned off to the highest bidder with the proceeds going to the magazine. At the second annual event, $50 bought the chance to explore lava caves with Dr. William R. Halliday, authority on volcanospeceology and author of three books on caves. Seven hundred dollars bought a two- day river trip in a handbuilt war canoe with the curator of Indian art at the University of Washington; $75 entitled someone to spend a day building igloos in the Cascade mountains and for the same amount someone won the right to be guest monster on Nightmare Theater, a local television show.

Rice, editor and publisher of the 8-year- old periodical that details the Pacific Northwest's natural wonders. "But, it is an experience for both the winning bidder and the other person. Last year some of the authorities and experts were hesitant about it, but many of them are back again this year." The idea grew from an auction where someone offered a field trip for bids, explained Sid Rice, director of finance and planning and husband of the publisher. "It got a good price," he said, "so Pacific Search decided to put together a whole program of experiences." About 180 items were on the block and bidding brought in some $25,000 in the second auction.
