The eastern prune buyers who thought
to break the mark.-t seem to have de
cided they must have been misinformed
as to prune conditions in the extreme
west. At any rate, they are now get
ting right in on the maximum price and
already many of the big buyers have
contracted for their needs at the gov
ernment s top figure. The government
dul not set a price, but merely named
a maximum figure and it is at this fig
ure that tho pruno packers are so.lling.
The growers will av.erage about one and
one half cents a pound more than one
year ago. The top figure is of course
for the 30-35 run which is figured at
11 7-8 cents a pound and the price grad
ually slides down until for the 65-70 run
the growers got 8 3-4 cents.
