A 'few days aew.-Dr. Humberto 'runo, on hits return-from

The Packing House.

On page 107 of this report, there occurs a discussion of
S the "-Servigo de -itricultur"", The packing house at Limeira is
severely criticized. I visited the packing house on Jan. 29, 19k
and spent between two and three hours making a detailed inspection
of the.machinery, a :part of which was put into functioning for me.
I made a critical examination of the parts of the machinery which
commonly give the most difficulty, in passing the fruit in a per-
Sfect condition.
The disposition of the machinery within the packing house
was extremely well made, 'he building in which the machinery was.
placed was more perfect than it needed to be for this kind of work,
demonstrating a desire on the part of the Directors of the enter-
prise to leave notling-undone to make it as perfect as possible.

In short, the packing house was better arranged i more
perfectly constructed; and the machinery of more modern type than
.ona would find-in a Flirida or California packinghouse of like

It seemed to me that what was lacking at that time, was -::
a sufficient number of v.ell trained workers to carry out this co0-
plicated and delicate work. If the packing house receives imper-
fect fruit or fruit that has been injured, it cannot correct these
defects. The packing house is certain to be blamed for. all fal-
ures, unless .rasilians are different in this respect.from the
North Americans. It is an extremely difficult matter a
man who is intellectually, educationally and practically able to--
successfully conduct a packing house: specially is this diffi-
cult in a country where a modern citrus industry is still in its
initial stages. It was my experience in Florida that ,
without knoweldge or experience was the one who made. the most vio-
lent and irrational criticisp s '

Bello lUorizonte, ';B-nAs

March 23, 1931.

Tj dear Cawargo:

Share here for a few days on official work, but hopu to get
thru tomorrow and then go back to Vigosa, It has been quite a lon. time
since it has been possible to get at anything like letter writing. Our
occupation for the 2k st few weeks has been the assembling of thedata on
the PE. ii'mniflhi nd other anti-lepric plants we have at Vigosa.

Enclonod are some pi nta of the negatives we took ihile with
you during the Christmas trip. When I show the ,iatuifw of your Cassia
javonica I always make sureto explain that the climate at Deodom is mich
more favorable to its devlnpipent than is that of Vigosa. Of course no
holto'.O;r:hL print ever does justice to the w .:. :rial color value of the
Cassia javonica. It is one of the species that should be propagated and
di.; o ii;.ted very jcner:'.lly thznout the coastal regions of Brasil. It
should also be trIl d at Pirac.icab, ba, mpinas and So Paulo Possibly it
i:::j do well in Ianta Crtharina' oreven further south.

.l;... I Sgt bac to 'i.o0sa I went to serd r,'i some :~rints3 of
reapucaia.'hl. ("iss Clarissa says the safest way for you to do, if you
.rant to get the points, is to run up for them.) I -::-.d them laid out
before startingn for B. Hte but there were tree prints lacking which
we had made while here.

Last wee vwe presented to the .Seretary of !.ricult! rc, the
manuscript of -/i nA Cultura da rs. ucaiJ.i: .", and he seemed very enthusiastic
on the subject. .oen we g, back to Viqos we will take up the work of
preparing a ixanuk.cript on the anti-lepric species in general.

In case you do not .eat this letter, orthe photo.rrlphs, let
us hour from you *n:1 vWe will -end duplicates of theA copies!!

it.h kindest re1u1mbrances from both of us to you and D. Henriqueta,

I cEa,

Very sincerely .oirs,

Caro amigo Dr. Rolfs L, 3

Hoje lhe envio uma copia ao ataque que me foi feito pelo Navar-
ro a seu pessoal.
A/Doi ora tambem a copia de minha resposta dada ao Jornal.
Na minha resposta na pagina II essa pessoa amiga do fabricante
e o Senlior.
Eu lhe pego escrever ao Sr.ktinner, oontando que o "packing hou-
se" esta completamente parade e que os critics actualmente attribuem o
insuccesso do machinismo a modificagees que me accusam "ter feito con-
tra vontade do mechanic da rabrica*.
Eu desejo que a Fabriica nos diga si na montagem desse "packing-
house" ur prego foT batido contra a vontade do mechanic e si a Fabri-
oa pode attribuir minha acgqo Junto ao mechanic a responsabilidade
pelos insuccessos verificados em Limeira.
0 machinismo foi entregue a Cooperativa nunca mais eu tendo ti-
do occasiao de pr os p6s no "packing house", a nao ser para ir buscar
uma machine do Ministerio que lA estava guardada.
A dooperativa de Limeira se incompatibilisou commigo, dahi
velo a nossa separagao at6 hoje.
Pego que escreva a carta e me envie fechada para que eu faga a
remessa por occasiao da "Panair".
Abragos do amigo

My dear CaLargo:

Your letter of 21st of Feb. to "Boa Amiga Clarstsa" was
received in due course of mill- Thank you very much for the infor-
S maiun it contacted. It -rave us the figureswe needed to complete
dataL that we had taken when at LiU ira.

A for days q;o w:e r, coived a pac age of pecans, with your
note inside~ sayinz that they were to be used for took. These nuts
were very good and 4t se'ms to me that would make excell'rit mudias.
I have placed them in a jar, and labeled thea, so they can go in
the permanent exdiibit here.

Their flavor is very decidedly like that of t:ae hicxory
nut. Their shape ni. develIopmnt of shell is Ulso like some of
the Beorth American hickory nuts. If 'they were in Florida, Prof.
Blaclmon, the pecan specialist, would undoubtedly study the tree,
as to its lot.vos, flowers and fruit, to see if it were not really
a hybrid peaeo--h.aokory nut. Several such hI-ve been reported from
tim to time but none of t;em oi sufficient i=portAnce to ju-tify
Their brin- planted. (:.-ss ClE.rissa szys to sen4 her two bushels of
them for use inr the kitcahe. )

For about the last x.eek I have been fflicted with a very .
painful carbuanle (ferunculo). This has made it impossible for ms
to either stand up or sit down. The only thing I have been able to
do 'without causing t. groat deal of pain i as to lie on the bed, whore
I a, at present, "'ctntin, this letter to you.

In regard to tha, amount of service to the State of Minas
Cerr.ea, I am not sutro but you are correct th':t miy service is not
and h:as not been a preciated for what it is worth. Of course I ex-
pect that a great auiy of the common people of ;i-"a would consider
thut 'my salary was so handsome that it i as the only reason I am here.
It goes without saying that if my services wore not sufficiently ap-' a
preciated to r*erit the salary2 then someone else Vhoso services
'. are .ppreintred should'be given the sal.ry. So far asp,,rsonal cam-.
fort is oeaoernod, I would be far better off lit ng in Gainesville.
So f.r ac productive work is concerned, and a real appreciation of
rgood '.ork, I would be a. hundred timoo better off in Florida.

I do not want you to think that I a.N: especially down-
hehrted, because I knov. there some people in Brasil that appre-
tinto the work thi.t hrve done. But you knov from personal exper-
ienoe 'tlv.t there are some people connected not only with the Uines
Govrnment, but vith other gov rnmnents as well, and one need ,ot
go beyond Floride to find them, th t are so "czbeguda2 that they
wreck almo- t everyth-ing they nro connected with.

S *


The Egpola is prospering and we have all the students'that
can be taken care of. The professors are getting along very well indeed..
The present financial depression does not seem to have interfered'with
then poiz g good 'jork. We registered 143 students, 44 municipios of
the 21.4 in the state being represented, and 6 other states. There
are seven ( 6 o nu!'r6 wentroso ?) from the State of Sae Paulo.
These Paulistas -re finoa. Students, so fino.indeed that one of thoib
is already "contrLactado" to a young lady in Vigosa. So you see we
are very quietly accjuirinr the pohltlion of SRo Paulo. But S'o
Paulo already hus L. overabundance of nico yning men, as we know
from the students who wore here in previous years.
*I *

hen you see
to ae and see uws here
forgot about it.

Dr. Thaodureto'
it Vigcsa. "ou

remind hirm tihat he promised.
see, I do nt want him to

Give ouL best regards. to D. Ilenriquet.a and a big abrago
for eacch of tho filhos. I shoufi like to have that little rascal

Campinas, 21 de Fevereiro de 1930.

Boa amiga Clarissa

Recebi hoje a sua carta a qual rasso a responder.
Em S.Paulo temos dois packing-houses: o de Limeira e o de Sorocaba.

0 primeiro e obra de collaboraqao dos tres poderes: Federal, Esta-
doal e Municipal, o segundo e todo de iniciativa do Estado.

Custo do Packing-house de Limeira:

Terreno -------------------------------- 100:000$000
Uma unidade Skinner cor capacidade de
3.000 caixas em dez horas,com machine
Morgan para fazer caixa? -------------- 170:940$000
Segunda unidade (por ser installada 51:000$000

Predio ( 40ms.X40 ms.) de construcq9o
metalica e paredes de tijollos, com bal-
cao interno de peroba ------------------ 490:000$000

Installaqao electric --7--- -- 15:000$0on

Em 1930 sera installada m outra unidade igual a existence e mais
o seguinte: Um apparelho para o tratamento de borax e de parafina, recepto-
res para caixas de colheita, 3 esteiras machanicas para conducqao de caixas
de colheita dentro do packing-house, orqado tudo em 315:000$000.

Custo do Packing-house de Sorocaba:

Predio, no estylo do de Limeira (40x20ms.)- 180:000$000

Balcao de madeira ------------------------ 10:000$000

Installagao electric -------------------- 12:000$000

Unidade Skinner complete e moderna,toda de
ferro para 1.200 caixas em dez horas ---- 75:000$000

Machina Morgan para fazer caixas e outros pe-
quenos materials ---------------------- 21:840$000
Packing-house no Rio de Janeiro: Campo Grande (Districto Federal)

Foi montado em 1929, pelo Snr. Fenston o Packing-house da firm F.O.
B. Limitada com unidade Skinner complete com capacidade de 700 caixas, ma-

chinismo todo de ferro.

^- e~- Qh }V\ fVw r/>v~wY>6 .4fc4L% .


Packing-house (Nova Normandia Districto Wederal) :

Propriedade dos Guinle, localidado alguns kilometros de Nova Iguassu.

Nao tenho dados exactos sobre o machinismo, sei, porem, que custom muito

mais caro do que o de Limeira, sendo de menor efficiencia.

As machines sao da California, construidas de madeira.

Este Packing-house possue a machine de carimbar as laranjas, que custa

caro e que finalmente pouco adeanta, pelo menos nao e cousa indispensavel.

Vou hoje mesmo escrever ao Snr. Dr. Guilherme Guinle, pedindo detalhes

technicos e custo de seus machinismo. Logo que receba, enviarei ao meu velho


Packing-house de Nova Iguassu:

Machinismo igual ao de Sorocaba, comprado por meu intermedio na Florida,

por conta do Ministerio da Agricultura.

As machines estao armazenadas, esperando a construcgao do predio que de-

veria ser realisada pelo Governo do Estado do Rio. Este, porem, nada fez ate

agora. Creio que o Governo Federal construira o predio para ser utilisado

ainda este anno, pela Cooperativa dos fructicultores de N ova Iguassu.

0 Dr. Torres, do Fomento Federal, esteve hoje no Instituto Agronomico,

e pelo que conversamos, elle ira combinar com o Dr. Lyra Castro, para convi-

dar seu Pae para dirigir o servigo de Citricultura, do Governo Federal.

O Rio de Janeiro sera melhor para saude do Dr. Rolfs, quer elle fique

residindo em Deodoro, ou, melhor ainda, numa praia, respirando o ar delicioso

do mar.

Fago votos para que o convite seja feito e que meu velh6 Mestre acceite-

o, pois para Minas, o Dr. Rolfs ja fez de mais,e,assim, estaremos mais perto.

Vigosa e muito long, sem recursos para o Dr. Rolfs estar se sacrifican-

Sobre a questao da direcgao dos Packing-houses, em S.Paulo, esta sera

feita pela Directoria das Cooperativas. 0 nosso serviqo dara apenas orienta io

e ensinara o trabalho a ser realisado.


Quanto a direcqao, nos fazemos questao de confial-a, desde o inicio,

aos proprios interessados, afim de que a Citricultura em S.Paulo cresqa

ja emancipada.

Aproveitando-me da opportunidade, tenho o prazer de enviar um aper-

tado abraqo ao meu velho Mestre e saudaqoes cordeaes.
