To discuss cannery plans
Claus Peterson, the Mill Creek poultryman, was in town Wednesday. Mr. Peterson reports that a special meeting has been called for 2pm Sunday afternoon, in the West Union Grange Hall at Camp One, to discuss plans for the organization of a cooperative company to establish a fruit and vegetable cannery in the valley. Mr. Peterson is strongly in favor of some such move being made, and believes it would greatly encourage the growing of small fruits and vegetables, and be the means of promoting a new prosperity among the farmers.

With those words, Willapa Harbor Hospital Administrator Victer Vander Does described the reason more than 20 persons gathered Thursday to begin shaping the long- range goals of the South Bend hospital.
