It was during the previous year. Reports
from growers, however, were that Indica
tions pointed to a heavy crop this year,
although It was conceded that It was a
little early to make a sure forecast.
The association placed Itself on record as
unanimously opposed to the proposed wide
tire legislation by the state legislature.
The members expressed themselves as be
ing of the opinion that tt would entlal
needless expense on the farmers.
That Iowa should have a law requiring
spraying of fruit trees and making other
regulations similar to those In force in
fruit states of the Pacific slope, for the
destruction of fruit pests was a sentiment
expressed by the members and the matter
was discussed at length, but no action waa
