Hardwood consumers fof the
past two-weeks hav gntten' into
the market with gusto at the dull
est season !of the year, with the
resQlt that the decline. In prlcea
has been checked abruptly and
orders have mounted to 7 per cent
mbre than "production, according
to 'statistics of the Hardwood
Manufactures' Institute. i
' Mill operators 'throughout 'the
South .are operating on reduced
50 hour a week schedule, and oth
ers are closing down - for two
weeks for. repairs. .Usually there
la considerable surplus stock on
hand at this season of the year.
' Automobile manufacturers, fur
'niture manufacturers and the
building, trades, which: .are - the
three ma jor 1 consumers of 'hard -
L woods, are taking active parts in
the buying movement. Probably
not in , years has- the hardwood
barometer, as published by the In
stitute, been as equally balanced
on orders, shipments and produc
tion at this season as it Is no.
Four-quarter, common .sap gum is
leading ' the way In : the upward
movement. The demand, for this
lumber ia so great that many
large producers are oversold, t '
Lumbermen 'say that such ac
tivity at this season is Indicative
of an active season in the fall and
