APPLE ADVERTISING It is regrettable that some apple growers are protesting against the newly imposed state apple tax of 1 cent a bushel to he used for apple advertising. Especially so, because the law was enacted to create a larger market and better price for the fruit grown by these same growers. ^Natural nmi'kvts for Michigan produce are the large cities Within the overnight delivery area from Michigan. At present, advertising campaigns by growers in other states are tending to make other than Michigan apples the "specialties" iu these markets. If this competition is unchallenged, it will become increasingly difficult for Michigan produce to get its share of the column or top market price. Agricultural groups in other states have met the experimental t-ostss and labor and have helped to develop a technique for collective advertising, which if properly planned and executed, cannot fail to increase income for Michigan growers. Those who till the soil of Michigan surely deserve every opportunity for improving their markets that their state government can furnish. They deserve opportunity to win ami protect these markets with the same assistance rimv given to the growers of other slates. It was to ac- | cpmplish this fact that the last legislature enacted an act j requiring that each bushel of apples sold or shipped in Michigan have placed thereon one of the 1 cent tax stamps. Xo doubt these same protestors of the tax complain the loudest about Washington apples apj>eariug in Michigan's rightful markets. Yet (hey thoughtlessly are unwilling to help themselves. Michigan apple growers can learn a good lesson from apple produeei's of the state of Washington. Xo food product of the west has had gi-eater ups and downs than the apple industry of the Pacific Northwest Avhich provides around 25 pen-out of the national apple crop. Since 1910 there have been frequent efforts to advertise Washington apples. Most of these efforts have been in -support of the various brands. None of the co-operative organizations, however, had had a sufficient percentage of the tonnage to bear the advertising burden of the industry. In 1930 a comprehensive grower sign-up program led to a new grower-controlled organization called the Washington State Apples, Inc. The solo purpose of this corporation was to advertise Washington apples. Rum of f 175,000 was invested in advertising during' the first year. In addition to the advertising, the association established nine dealer service representatives in leading- markets. The first year's advertising effort brought real benefit to the Washington growers. The farm value of Washington's commercial apple crop in the l!KU5-:57 rrop year amounted to $1(5,(580,000 compared with .$ 13,-158.000 in 1935. Returns to growers increased three and a quarter million dollars despite a slight decrease (3.5 percent') in Commercial production of apples in the state. Orderly movement characterized the 11)3(5-37 shipping season, and substantial increase in volume was recorded. . Permanence of the apple-advertising program was assured by the state legislature, which passed a law levying ! oy OPEN ARNOLD WRITTEN TOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION CHAPTER THIRTTf LORENA HAMILTON lay there on her pillow thinking until tears came into her eyea. The hour was late, really, but she didn't care. She knew she could always get breakfast in the kitchen; anyway, she didn't want to eat. Shot Rogers had been angry vfith her. She had, in truth, butted Gi on the men's affairs by going to the east range, but she had done It with the best of intentions. The folly of that had almost praved tragic when Shot fired three times at her with his rifle. Shot owned medals for his crack marksmanship. She was alive now just because she had piled curls up or top of her head—Mr. Rogers' bullets had certainly gone unerringly to the one spot of her that showed! jrfut beyond that was the disturbance she had caused in the hearts of the Brazees. She sensed that, more than actually heard about it. Uncle George had revealed something of it at the Monday night conference on the front porch, and Aunt Sally had been worked up, too. Even Jerry Dale, who maintained a sort of self-appointed protectorate o.'er her, had been vehement ebout her going to join Rogers' fighting men. "I guess I ought to be ashamed," she admitted to her pillow. "But— Shot once called me a setting hen! Besides tlia' I—I—" She wouldn't quite admit wnat she felt, even to herself. She just sobbed a little there all alone. She didn't want to be a disturbing factor this summer on her aunt's and uncle's ranch. They had been so good and kind to her, they lived in such a lovely place, they had so many friends, she felt selfish for upsetting th« routine. And yet, Escobar had been raiding bef'.-e she came. The trouble surely wasn't all her fault She got up and dressed and ate breakfast alone, then determined to go tell Shot Rogers how sorry she was for mMung herself an added worry and burden. But she found that Rogers and his men had ridden off before daybreak, telling no one of their plans. The discovery hurt Lorena. So Shot didn't trust even her any more! He had been attentive, he had listened to her, discussed the detective plan with her, been a confidant. But he was angry now. He hadn't even taken up for her last night when Jerry Dale was talking and acting so abominably—well, he had protested mildly, at any rate— and now he had ridden away without a word. She stood by the corral gate, thinking, when Jerry Dale himself galloped up to the barn and saw ler. "Hi, cutle!" he called. "How's the belle of the rancho this morning?" "Helly, Jerry," she answered. "Where's your boy friend ? I mean the quick-trigger gent, Mr. Rogers. Hunh?" Lorena's chin lifted. "I am not concerned with Shot Rogers." she declared. "O-o-oh! So! Well, that doesn't make me cry, baby. In fact, I feel like singing." "Go right ahead. It's a free country." She wasn't smiling at all. "I believe I will—O lee-o-lay-eee lay-eee-e-e-e! Listen, kid!" She stood by the corral gate, thinking, when Jerry Dale rode up. Before she could answer him the great cliff back of the Srazee home answered for her: "Lay-eee-e-e-e!" The echo delighted her. Jerry sang out again. He had a clear, really musical baritone, and he looked particularly happy and handsome this morning. Lorena discovered that the ebullience and verve of him were contagious to a degree. Before she knew it she was yodeling, too. She hadn't realized before that the cliff was so powerful a sounding board. "The echo's best if you stand near the corral or near the windmill," he informed her. "Mrs. Frazee's big alarm bell gets all mixed up in its own notes. It's too close to the cliff." "How high is the cliff. Jerry?" "Nearly a thousand feet. Eight hundred anyway. And straight up." "It seems to lean over. Hover over the house. Can you—could I climb up there ? Isn't it a grand view ? "Sure. You can see from Canada to South America, more or less. Indians used it in the old days as a signal point. Smoke signals and all that bunk. Chief Cochise and his Apaches used to be the tough guys in this border country. Now it's Luis Escobar. Ha!" "Oh," said Lorena, "By the way, where did you say the big brave he-men fighters are this morning? Sort of slipped off in shame, didn't they? They are artists at dodging Escobar. I may have to take a half hour off and biVig Senor Luis in myself some afternoon." "That would be very sweet of you," she said disdainfully. Why don't you?" "Give m" a kiss If I do/ Hunh?" She didn't answer him. She realized, with some regret, that he was rapidly leading the conversation into a too personal vein again. She regretted it, because Jerry Dale could be a delightful boy If he'd permit himself to be. * • * For once In his life Mr. Shot Rogers refused to trust his ojyn trusted friends. "I just don't believe It," he V saying. "The cows didn't go up our branch of the stream. I'd swear to that. So they must have gone up ('ours. Damn it, they must have!" The other men just looked at him or shrugged There was nothing further they could say. They had ridden up the middle fork of the host, watching every inch of both banks. They had gone several miles. They had come to a jungle of rocks over which the thin water* slid and sloshed and splashed in spectacular fashion, rocks jammed with trash and logs and silt and debris such as only a stream can gather. No cows or other animals had passed there, nor could ever pass such an obstruction They had therefore done as ordered—come back to the forks to Join the other five men up the right branch of the stream. But they had met Shot and his four companions riding toward them. "I'll just go see, by mysell, if 1 have to," She*, declared, sullenly. Of course they all rode back with him, despite the salient fact that the horses now were tired. Shot hardly spoke during the tedious journey up this middle branch. He scrutinized one bank on the way up, the other on the way back down. When they had come a third time to the forks, he even eyed the dry left fork curiously, but of course saw nothing in the soft sand there and knew the cattle could noi possibly have gone that way. "I don't aim to be mean, Mr. Roguhs, suh," one of his friends began, loftily. "But have you-all found what we overlooked, maybe?" Shot grinned then. "All right. All right, Dewey, and the rest of you. I'll set up drinks as soon as we git to a place. I didn't mean-; thing "-well, shucks, has got me •men, this feeling all screwy! There was cows taken out of the valleys. They were dr.ven into the stream You all saw that And yet they never came out of the stream. Now where In the devil did those cows go?" His friends only shook their heads, leaning wearily on saddl* horns. "We ain't talkin'," said one rider. "We're listenin'. You tell us." (To Be Continued) oven. Surround with vegetables.

Considering what apple growers in other states are do- inj to sell their produce in our market, why shouldn't Michigan growers at least give this act an opportunity function for (hern? It is altogether possible that the farmers would feel more inclined to purchase a trademark, guaranteeing a definite grade and qualify of apple rather than a stamp. The trade mark of guaranteed quality might appeal more readily to the consuming public and lend greater support to the advertising effort. Whichever plan is carried on in the future must be backed by quality fruit of a definite grade.—Reprinted from The South Haven Daily Tribune.
