canoer W. Guthrie's Deportees: meaning? (57* d) RE: W. Guthrie's Deportees: meaning? 11 Jun 00

Adding to Mark Clark's point about the growers would leave the crop to rot, that is, they would leave to rot that surplus which, if marketed, would lower prices.

One way they made sure that no one would "steal" the "surplus", (especially the people who had just picked it and were hungry), was to pile it all up and cover it in something totally inedible.

"The oranges piled in their creosote dumps."
