Page Two Grapeview Men Continued From Page. One an unusual achievement. bility to the staterlegislators who in 1935 helped to create the Wine industry in Washington by insert-i ing a “domestic winery” classifi— cation i'nto the state liquor con- trol program, that I can report that Washington wine production now ranks third in the nation, ex- ceeded only by New York and) California. The industry has a to- tal capitalization of approximate- ly 5,000,000 with an annual pay-, roll of $750,000~—operating on a much higher wage scale than that in effect in many other large wine-producing states. Farmers, Growers Benefit "Washington farmers and fruit growers vsill continue to be bene- fited by increased grape and other Wine fruit prices," Wright said. “ll‘ivc yt::r.; ago grapes were going tugging at M50 it ton,” he declared. “Last year growers re- ceived $40 a ton for ordinary var— ieties. and as high as $65 a ton for European varieties which are eing cultivated now in the North- west for the first time on a com-.- mercial Scale.” One of the most interesting de- velopments in the state wine in- dustry, according to Wright, has been the successful introduction of European wine grapes into the Northwest, principally on the fer— tile slopes of the Sunnyside and adjacent regions. “In the now arid regions that will be made fertile by the comple- tion of the two great Rosa and Coulee projects, lie acres of East- ern Washington soil that wine ex— ports have declared grow better European grapes than European vineyards," Wright declared. "To- day, nineteen varieties of Euro- pean grapes are being grown in \Vashington, for wine and retail sale. “With the completion of these two great projects, and the open- ing of additional millions of acres to cultivation, the Washington wine industry will play a major part in the utilization of the pro- ducts of those acres.” DIES.

She served one two-year term as Mason County school superintend- ent.in 1911—12, then shortly after Ethat went to the Seattle system, 'where she taught for many years before she voluntarily retired. But the urge to get back into the teaching harness brought her return to the profession when the Lilliwaup opportunity arose this week and tomorrow Mrs. Hans- com takes over duties at the canal the .school to complete 3 term. Cantata Tryouts Due Next Monday l First tryouts for male voices for the “Good Friday" cantata to be given here this spring have been advanced a week and will be held next Monday evening at 8:15 o’clock in the senior high school auditorium, Director Ben Hall- grimson announced yesterday. Already an excellent response to the call for male voices has been given, Mr. Hallgrimson said, a large number of Shelton and Mason County men with voice training to their credit having in- dicated they will seek leads in the cantata. Likewise an excellent start has been made in organizing the 30- lpiece orchestra which will render [the ‘music for the cantata, Mr. Hallgrimson added. He plans to .arrange a spectacle_which will place a 50-voice choir and a 30- lpiccc orchestra on the stage at ,tlic junior high at the same time. l lFormer Circus 1940741 .

From perusals of these catalogues will evolve the plan for next summer‘s garden, which can be a great success or failure, depending on the quality of the seeds and plants used. . . This holds true particularly for the new varieties that are appear- ing on the market for the first time this year. The catalogues and the garden magazines will all be featuring these newer types, setting them forth in as brilliant a light as word descriptions will allow. Here is where one should exercise most caution. ‘ "' While every word of those glow- ing descriptions may be true in one part of the country, it does inot follow that the new variety will perform to the same degree of excellence in all other sections. Hence, unless one knows .f r em personal experience that a new type of plant will grow well un- der particular conditions, it is not wise to use too many in the most prominent parts of the gar- :den. This does not mean that one should disregard the novelties. Use Director, U. of W. Arboretum (git.
