Proof must also be Given in writing the tonnage held by shippers and cars must be ordered at least ten Days ahead. Other questions concerning the big grape Deal Are to be included in this plan which is expected to make it hard for the Fly by night operator and the Man without funds and More easy for the Man with the tonnage and the Money to operate. With 10,000 cars left on the vines last year prices were slaughtered Down to As Low As $50 for a whole Carload delivered. Shipments ll500 to 1,600 cars a Day were made the bulk which was poor Quality and millions dollars were lost by the growers and shippers. The California grape Deal with More acreage in bearing this year than last is a serious problem and operators say needs some very drastic changes or methods which will eliminate the poor Quality Cut Down the total shipment to Good Stock Only control the movement cars assure the railroads their freight the shipper his commission and the growers his daily bread. This is being fostered by the Many big men in the Trade throughout the country. At the regional Board meeting it was proposed that a committee 21 be appointed to include seven Bankers seven shippers and seven growers who will act with authority on All matters concerning tonnage cars Bonds financing the Deal payment to growers. Eastern drafts and collections. The state Jill be divided into a number zones with a committee in each zone which will pass on tonnage which a1 shipper claims he has under contract. This subcommittee will have authority to demand the inspection tonnage contracts or proof from Bona fide shippers before their orders will be filled for cars. They will see that the necessary surety Bonds Are provided that the railroads Are protected that the growers Are protected and that the shippers Are at All times protected.
