After half an hour's delay, while one of the girls tried in vain to enter the high school to get her gym paraphernalia, they finally arrived with red nose and numb feet at their destinatioon. Sultan, Lake Stevens, Goldf Bar and Snohomish being already there, the girls were all given numbers and in- structions as to which team they would play on, there being fifteen teams in all. Play started about 10:30 and can- tinued up unti.l noon when lunch was sez-ced in the cafeteria. By this tim= six of the teams had played off theil games so teams 7'arLd 8 took the floor at 1:30. By 3:30 each of the :fifteen teams had vlayed and a short intermission was held. Then dedge-ball and a series of posture marches were taken up b.x the' girls to pass the tithe, while the judges decided upon two teams ms,( up of the best players to take part in a game from which the all-county team would be selected. Finally amid much abated .breath the names of the twelve players were read off. Three Monroe girls were among them Ellen Sheppard, Mary Donovan, and Laura Kennon. The game was a fast one and at the half three subs were put in, two of them being Alice Ms[hey and Grace Lac- on, Monroe. When the game was over the fif- teen girls who had taken part i the game lined up against the wall and awaited the judges' decision. It came after about ten minutes of heated argument and careful con- sideration. Ellen Sheppard, forward; Mary Donovan, center, and . Laura Kennon, side-center, were electe:t to the all-county team and presente. with ribbons signifying this honor. I a great success.

The break- ing up of the country road rrstrict:! the movement of corn to market and receipts fell off sharply and caused a fh'mer market situati.on for this grain. The market for oats con- tinued weak and prices made fu;;ther declines. The rye market was also slightly weaker but an active demand' for desirable grades held barley prices firm. Wheat--Argentine and, Australian wheat shi.pments totaled approxi- mately 9,500,000 bushels fe,r the week and this, together with the heavy stocks on ocean passage, weakened the general wheat market situation and resulted in a decline of 1 1-2 to 2c in Liverpool prices.

No. 2 red selling at St. Louis as much as 4c under the May price. Milling demand was dull and elevators were taking principal- ly the cheaper grades. No. 2 red winter was quoted at the close of the week at St. Louis at $1.37-1.38V; Chicago $1.33-1.36; Cincinnati and i Toledo $1.37-1.39. The spring wheat market was also quiet. Heavy weight dry wheat sold readily but damp lightweight types were very slow sale. 12 per cent pro- tein No. 1 dark Northern was quoted at the May price to 5c over in Minne- apolis with the 13 cent protein sell- i'ng at 2c to 7c over the May, wifich closed' February 11 at $1.405/. Durum premiums were again sharply reduced. No. 1 Amber being quoted at both Minneapolis and] Duluth at 15c to 25c over the Duluth May, which closed February 11 at $1.43. Both milling and export demand showed, some improvement in the Pacifi northwestern markets with mills paying about 2c over the ex- port price for milling wheats. White wheats fcv export were quoted at Portland at $1.34 per bushel. Sales of the white wheats were prinicpa]ly to Europe and of the red wheats to the Orient. An inproved demand for flour from the Orient was 'ma.king a better (lemand for the lower grade wheats. Corn.--Corn prices remained prac- tically unchanged at most of the mar- kets during the week but the lighter receipts caused by the bad cohditions of the roads caused an ianproved de- mand for the lighter offerings. Re- ceipts at the principal markets to- taled only about 4,000,000 bushels compared with nearly 8,000,000 bush- els for the previous week.
