Buying is brisk, shipments are heavy

This is the condition among the luni
ber manufacturers 0f western Oregon
and western Washington as reflected in
the weekly barometT of the West Coast
Probably the most significant element
in the situation is the apparent short
ag;: of stocks. While the government
I'.'mands have kept'thc mills' short of
the upper grades for almost a year, it
has not ben until recently that the
shortage made itself felt in commons.
An informal gathering of representa

901,377 feet above actual production
In the previous week the orders ex
ceeded production by 10,163,687 feet.
As shipments haw been keeping pace
with orders, it Is self-evident from these
figures that tho stocks at the mills are
being fairly well drained.
Fruit Box Situation. .
Fruit packers are facing a threatened
shortage in box sliooks for this year's
Despite the heavy production of
spruce box material as a by-product of
airplane stock now being out in Ore

of the situation iflvealed that there will
be not more than enough to go arouiu'i
Some packers already aro becoming
alarmed. Oii0 California fruit agency
estimates that the present supply is tiO

Although the real demand for box
material will not bo felt for a fof

a heavy buyer. Tremendous quantities

for the purpose of handling the lumber
suplies needed for boxes and crates.
This bureau will work in co-operation

Early last winter when the spruce
mills of Western Oregon and Western
Washington began to cut Increasing
quantities of airplane stock, the so-call
ed side cut of lumber that could not be
used for airplanes began to pile up to
prodigious heights in the yards and
on the docks and wharves. Cars were
scarce and the problem of what to do
with tbis by-product was a serious one.

Whilo no official explanation was
given for tho decision of tho depart

that casualties had been very heavy
