No official estimate of the north­

Unofficial estmates range
around 60 million pounds. The Cal­
ifornia crop is officially estim.-.ted at
294 million pounds. The coast crop
therefore appears to total just a lit­
tle more than early Bea9on estimates.
European production is expected to
be a little larger than early estimates.
The marketable supplies however,
may not be larger than last year ow­
