Celebrated With Talks
S By Prominent Men

7i T HE need for the Clearing
SHouse, what it has achieved the
first half year of its operation
and how it can attain its objectives
were the general ideas discussed at
the mass meeting in Winter Haven
on Growers Day of the Orange Fes-
tival last week. One thousand or
inore growers and representatives
of shippers were in attendance.
The meeting was presided over
by L. M. Rhodes, state marketing
commissioner. Speakers and their
subjects were: Senator John S.
Taylor, Largo, "The History of the
Florida Citrus Industry-Growing
and Marketing"; J. Curtis Robin-
son, General Manager of the Clear-
S-ing House, "The Achievements of
-,.the Clearing House to Date"; Dr.
W. A. MacKenzie, Leesburg, "The
7 Grower's Duty-If the Industry is
to Prosper."
Throughout the speeches the re-
curring note was that the growers
could extricate themselves from
their troubles only by united and
Loyal efforts in the Clearing House,
.,.and that failure to "play the game
four square" was not only suicidal
r'4or themselves but also for their
Neighbors. At the close of the
meeting a resolution was adopted
callingg on growers to secure the
membership of growers who have
not yet affiliated with the organiz-
'-ation, and that shippers should seek
Sto induce outside shippers to c6me
in. This was introduced by R. K.
14iTompson, of Sarasota. \
-S. An. "Anniversary" Meeting
SJudge Allen E. Walker opened
mthe meeting by reminding the grow-
ishat the Clearing House move-
Iitwas begun at a similar meet-
~njg.just.one year ago. He felt that
a-lithe progress that could reason-
dllyjbe expected had been made.

"World's Greatest Drink" Served Free to Thousands


One of the features of Growers' Day at the Orange House and the oranges squeezed by pretty girls in
Festival in Winter Haven last week was the Clearing full view of the thirsty ones who crowded before the
House booth, pictured above, at which free drinks booth from 10 o'clock in the morning until the same
of orange juice were given away to Festival visitors. hour at night. More than 200 gallons of pure orange
The fruit was contributed by members of the Clearing juice was given away during the day.


No Established Values
Senator Taylor saw in the "small
army" of marketing agencies,
"whose prime object with a few
exceptions, is to make a profit for
themselves," the chief demoralizing
factor. The senator did not ques-
tion the legal and moral right of
the shippers to operate, "But what
is the result," he asked, "with this
multitude of agencies trying to sell,
with no uniformity of prices? The
jobber or dealer at the other end
soon learns that all he has to do
when he receives a quotation offer-
ing a car of grapefruit at $3, f. o.
b. Florida, is to wire a reply that
he can buy No. 1 stock at $2.75
from some other responsible ship-
per, not because the commodity is
not worth the price asked, but be-
cause there is no established mar-
ket value at this end of the line,
and also due to ths eagerness of
the multitude of agencies to make
their volume as large as possible,
thereby increasing their profits. As
you know all expenses must be paid.
The agencies get their fee, and then
if there is any left, the grower gets
it."
Mr. Taylor closed with a plea for
a tariff on fruits and vegetables
from other countries that were com-
peting in the market with the Flor-
ida products.
Robinson With Pioneers
Mr. Robinson told of his work in
Oregon ten years with a growers'
organization before he came to Flor-
ida. That was pioneering he said.
He was-glad to have a hand in the
pioneering work here. While the


work with the Florida organization
was new to him, he had spent many
years doing the same thing for
others. He was positive in his be-
lief that the Clearing House will
solve the citrus problems if every-
one will give it whole-hearted and
loyal support.
The general manager was pleased
to report that shipper-members are
abiding by the regulations. A check
of records in the offices show that
they are keeping faith with the or-
ganization on the pro-rating pro-
gram, which is the severest test yet
imposed. "A careful check of this
is made daily," he said. "Our ship-
pers stay within the limits. The
trouble we've had is that outside
shippers, who control only 20 to
25 percent of the fruit, shipped
from 43 to 49 percent the differ-
ent weeks we've been prorating."
He then gave the percentages ship-
ped by the Clearing House each
week the pro-rating policy has been
in effect.
Problems Are Increased
This control of shipments so as
to prevent market gluts and sharp
price fluctuations is the most dif-
ficult objective the organization has
undertaken, he said. The situation
this year has also been complicated
by the much higher ratio of under-
sized fruit. While this usually runs
about 20 percent, this year, with an
exceedingly large crop, approxi-
mately one-half the fruit is of the
smaller sizes.
Mr. Robinson also reviewed .the
progress that has been made toward
the objectives of the Clearing


House. The greatest surprise that'
has come to the officials is that
standardization of grade and pa&k'
has been effected in the five months
since the general manager was
named and full organization facili-
ties provided. There has been much
progress along other lines he said.
He felt sure more had been achieved
in the short period than the most'
optimistic of the originators of the
movement anticipated.
The advertising program has been
pushed as extensively as funds
would admit, Mr. Robinson re-9
ported. Advertisements have been
placed in 183 newspapers in 174;
cities. These newspapers have a.
total circulation of more than 11,
000,000 subscribers. Advertise-
ments also have been placed in a
half dozen of the magazines of
larger circulation, among these be-
ing the Saturday Evening Post
which has a circulation of nearly:
three million. The advantages of
Florida grapefruit and oranges as
a remedy for influenza has been
stressed, and some encouraging re-
ports of the results of this adver-
tising has been received.
General progress has been made,
all along the line, and his earnest
plea was that the growers "stick
by" the Clearing House and per-
suade their neighbors, who are not,
yet members, to "get in step."
"Tells 'Em the Truth"
Dr. MacKenzie didn't come
Winter Haven to flatter the grows
era, to whom his subject relate
but to tell them the truth,. hj
The truth he had to teUJ11

Eat it-drink it-it is one of the richest winter sources of vitamins-

it builds up the alkaline reserve that prevents colds and winter ills!


V ITAMINS in lavish summer-that's easy. Vege-
tables and summer fruits are cheap, abundant.
But now medical and food authorities warn that
special thought must be given to winter vitamins!
During the six months of vegetable-scarcity in win-
ter and early spring, the vitamin supply must not de-
crease. The usual winter diet of meats and starchy
foods alone produces acidity-the body's alkaline re-
serve lessens and the germs of common colds
grippe, influenza, find lessened opposition from the
body. Resistance to sickness in winter and spring is
low because the vitamin content of the diet is low!
This is dangerous-and needless. Science says that
one of the richest known sources of vitamins is a fruit
that is in season during these low-vitamin months...
grapefruit! Grapefruit is a sure way to provide your
family with the vitamins they must have for health
and freedom from illness. That is why it is now
considered a "winter essential" in everybody's diet.
Florida Grapefruit--richest in vitamins
The best grapefruit you can get come from Florida!
Tree-ripened, sun-ripened-Florida Grapefruit are


brimful of juice, sweeter, uniform in flavor. The skins
arethin-peelingis easy. Theymayhave"bright","gold-
en" or "russet" skin-but there's no difference inside.
Serve grapefruit more often than you do now. A

half for breakfast is not enough-this "winter essen-

There are so many delightful ways to serve Florida
Grapefruit--dozens of cool-looking salads, fruit-
cups, fruit cocktails, desserts!
And for breakfast-lunch-and in-between times
the new drink,highly recommended today by doctors
everywhere, is grapefruit juice! Scientific analysis
shows that the valuable properties of grapefruit are
in the juice. Florida Grapefruit Juice is so good -
so refreshing with its tart coolness a welcome
change and a delightful idea.
But, in any form, remember Florida Grapefruit is
a "winter essential" that brings winter health!

Work of State Plant Board Given -

Endorsement and Legislature Will

Be Appealed To For Appropriation


TNTEREST in the operation and
value to citrus growers of the
State Plant Board was awaken-
ed by Dr. Wilmon Newell, dean of
the state agricultural college and
commissioner of the Plant Board,
during the Oraaige .estival ,in. in-.
ter Haven last month. Dr. N'ewell,
as a guest of honor at the weekly
luncheon meeting of the Winter
Haven Chamber of Commerce,
spoke of the Plant Board's work,
both past and present. He told
his hearers that unless proper pro-
tection is given citrus trees to in-
sure their healthy growth and life,
that there will be no further prob-
lem -such as for instance, the mar-
keting of'the fruit.
While Dr. Newell's talk/was
somewhat brief, it resulted in
prompt action on the part of Cham-
ber 'if Commerde members and the
Directors' Advisory Committee of
Fifty (which' also met in Winter
Haven during the Festival.) .These
itwo groups passed resolutions en-
dorsing the work of the Plant Board
lan 'd:iuging the State Legislature

further in its memorial to the
Legislature by instructing its execu-
tive committee to appoint a commit-
tee to investigate the work of the
Plant Board both as to functions
and its ability 'to enforce the state
laws relative- to inspection -of all
plants.
Dr. Newell's talk at the chamber
meeting follows: -
Disaster Was Averted
"At the present time, when we
are paying tribute to the wonder-
ful citrus fruits of Florida, it may
not be out'of place to .recall'the
fact that only a few years ago this
great citrus industry, representing
an investment of perhaps 250 mil-
lions of dollars, was threatened with
destruction by citrus canker; also
that the threatened .calamity was
averted, gr at least deferred, by the
work of the State Plant Board and
the Bureau of Plant Industry of the
U. S. Department of Agriculture,
"On the part of the State of
Florida this was made possible" by'
the Legislature of 1915 enacting
the Florida Plant Act and makng

State's Totrl cro

The'work of pro-rating Clearing
House shipments, which was started
Jan. 1, has necessitated the obtain
ing of an estimate of the fruit re
maining on the trees as of Jan. 1
This estimate, furnished without
cost to the Clearing House, was
obtained by experienced represent-
atives of growers and shippers in
the various counties as shown in
the table on Page 3 of this issue.
The estimate reveals that there
remains in the state (as of Jan. 1,)
something more than 13,000,000
boxes of fruit, or to be exact, 7,-
778,630 boxes or oranges, 5,546,080
boxes of grapefruit and 426,210
boxes of tangerines.
This estimate, which is as nearly
accurate as is possible to obtain,
will set at rest any further discus-
sion in certain quarters as to the
total crop being 22,000,000 boxes.
Growers in the Clearing House
should realize however that the
Clearing House still is confronted
with a difficult problem and they
are urged to get together and work
toward a common end-that of the
ultimate success of 'their Associa-
tion.


Coolidge Presented

-Prize-Winning Fruit

President and Mrs. Coolidge this
week are enjoying some of the
finest Florida fruit. As soon as
first prize had been awarded at
the Orange Festival in Winter
Haven last week, Mayor and Mrs.
O. B. Warren took a prize box of
the oranges and another of grape-
fruit and hastened with it to the
White House where it was presented
to the president. Congressman and
Mrs. Drane assisted in the presen-
tation.
The fruit was taken f1irn the
exhibit "by the Florence Citrus
Growers Association, which receiv-
ed the $500 prize for the best col-
lection of citrus displayed. The
President expressed the wish that
he might have time to visit groves
which produced such fruit, but re-
gretted that he would not have time
on the trip to Florida this week
'for the-Bok carillon dedication.
Other talks were made by Prof.
R. W. Hodgson, citrus expert of
'Berkeley, Calif., Judge Allen E.
Walker, president of the Clearing
House Association; Jay Stull, presi-
-dent of the Chamber of Commerce
.of' Winter Haven; John F. May,
cliairman of the speakers' commit-
tee, and other festival officials..

in striving to improve citrus con-
ditions in Florida.
Growers should remember also
that an election of a new Board of
Directors and a new Growers Ad-
visory Committee will be held April
2nd, and any who have not actually
signed a contract with the Clear-
ing House Association, even though
their names may be upon the mem-
bership roll, will have no vote at
the April election.

were faced with the necessity of
shipping the surplus 2,000 miles to
the large consuming centers. Freight
costs imposed too great a risk for
the individual grower.
"California is peculiarly interest-
ed in the organization of the'Flor-
ida Clearing House," Mr. Hodgson
said. "And the West Coast is ex-
ceedingly anxious to see the plan
succeed. By the establishment of
uniform grades of good, quality
fruit, control of the movement to
the markets and stimulation of de-
mand generally for the Florida
product, the Californians believe it
will then be possible for the two
states to handle their problems to
greater mutual advantage."
