Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Pineapple Giants Stress Fresh Sales SARAH SHOPPER I'.btl rialto Voting. '    I    »tem hi on Arni Of ti en, low-» SMtn University By Boh Murphy HONOLULU (AP) - Repro-sedatives of Hawaii's two major pineapple producing companies, Dole and Del Monte, contend thai mainland buyers are going to continue to have fresh Hawaiian pineapple at their markets This is their view despite reports that the two companies are phasing out their operations in Hawaii for cheaper labor markets in foreign countries “The future for the Hawaiian pineapple is in unshipping it fresh to the mainland,” says Kmil Schneider of Castle and Cooke, parent company of Dole “Now that we have new low-cost agreements with the airlines on shipping the fruit, people im the East Coast are now getting good quality pineapple something they never experienced before “ con- Pullout Reports Many of the reports cerning the two companies pulling out of Hawaii were sparked by company announcements several months ago that they were closing down their pineapple operations on the island of Molokai at the end of 1975. Dole has 12,000 acres of land in pi-neapples there and Delmonte about 10,000, the spokesmen said The Del Monte Corp., citing an “increase in the world s demand for pineapple," now says it will continue the Molokai operation until .Jan. 31. 1978. Dole, however, will close down on Molokai as earlier announced While the companies are expanding their fresh-fruit shipping operation, they are. however, cutting hack on their canning operations here Key Factors • The labor market in Hawaii for canning is too expensive to compete with labor in Southeast Asia and Africa, the companies say. A union laborer in Hawaii is paid $2 98 an hour. while pineapple workers in the Philippines and Taiwan draw as little as 15 cents an hour Inexpensive airline shipping rates and the superiority of • he Hawaiian pineapple are the two key factors that have caused the mainland demand to increase for pineapples grown in Hawaii s fill,(NNI acres of the fruit, the company spokesmen say There also is a world shortage of pineapples which was caused by droughts in Africa and Asia, one spokesman said A pineapple picked in a field on a Monday could be in a grocery store iii New York by Thursday," said Castle and Cooke's Schneider. “This is what is contributing to the demand “ He said this fast shipment has caused the buyer on the mainland to get a better quality pineapple from Hawaii than ever before because the companies are now able to let the fruit stay on the plant longer for tw'tter ripening. Cohorts Recall Ford at Yale NEW HAVEN, Conn (ITI) — Gerald Ford was “just a sort of down-to-earth kid. an honest sincere guy," says a former coaching colleague at Yale university “If he had a feeling about something, he was ready to back it to the hilt — and you had to be pretty damn sure of yourself to talk him out of it," said Jim DeAngelis, in the October issue of the Yale Alumni magazine. Myres McDougal. one of three deans who interviewed Ford prior to his acceptance to Yale law school, said in his notes, reprinted in the magazine, that the future President seemed to be a “very mature, wise person of good judgment, good looking, well dressed, plenty of poise, personality excellent."
