Friday's cut of 2c In the price of
eggs locally brings the selling
value in Portland to the lowest
figures known during January.
The local drop which was forced
by extremely liberal lay and a
scant outlet, forced extras down
to 16c dox. with mediums 14c.
The latter continues "very: weak

The fact that the New York
market is now quoting the low

Pacific coast extras. Indicates
the plight of the trade of the
west coast. Inasmuch as a large
part of the: surplus is always

tive of the price, the returns
available for such shipment are
somewhat below the basis bing
quoted here, low as it is.
The low price has presented a
problem to producers and distri
butors alike. Culling of flocks
and the forcing of many out of
the industry have resulted from
recent extreme low record values.

Portland is very firm but distri

Responses to Informatory Double
On its face an Informatory
double shows strength In three
suits ; it may or may not be that the
doubler holds considerable strength
in the suit doubled; in any event
the doubter's partner assumes thai
strength is held in the three un
hid suits, and answers accordingly. 1
Probably the most desired re
sponse is a major suit bid, and the
least wanted reply to the double
is no-trumps. Lack of a biddable
suit sometimes obligates a no-,
trump response upon two stops to
the adverse suit plusv average side
cards, or even upon a single stop
to that suit in case better than
average side cards are held.
Of course the dou bier's partner
should let the double stand upon
great strength, lacking a sound
suit declaration. If not certain to
defeat the bid doubled, in case no
biddable suit is held, the doubter's
partner must make his best bid. In
some circles a response of 1-No
Trump is made to show utter
weakness, but I prefer my part
ner to bid even a three-card suit
to bidding l-No Trump unless he
holds cards upon which he is will
ing to play that declaration. I dis
like conventions that leave a part
ner in doubt as to what the re
sponder holds. In my vocabulary,
a reply of l-No Trump says:
' Partner, I have no sound suit
declaration; I have at least one
stop to the doubled suit and
3ome side strength. The following
bands show preferred procedure
ing considerable favor with re
tailers at this period. Quality
hogs are also moving out well.
Demand for bulls Is excellent.
There is very ittle trading In
the apple market either for do
mestic or foreign account. Ex
ports are much smaler than at
this period a year ago while only
extreme low prices are con
firmed. Talk of better business is
not borne oat by surveys of dis
tributors. BEIGE FOX TRIMS
