"The lumber market has been weak
for many months, the only way to

lumber. Suppose there ', was an ; over

Lumber fought good prices early in
the year. We charged exactly the same
price for logs then as now and did not
advance them although it could have
been done. We wanted to establish a
basis from which the lumber manufac
turer could work on future business to
some degree Of certainty, and that Is
what the loggers are trying to do now. ;
They do not approve the idea of getting
$T for logs one month and $17 the next,
but would rather get; a, fair price , the
year round. It would sglve a sound,
