According to James A. Burger, market administrator, total Class I usage for the month reached 54.1 million pounds with daily usage averaging 1.8 per cent above the May level and 9.8 per cent above the level of a year ago. The increase over the May level is the first ever recorded in the market. The increase over the pre- vious month primarily re- flects a sharp increase in sales of fluid milk products outside of the marketing area. Out-of-area sales aver- aged 7.2 per cent above those in May and were 28.1 per cent above the level of aI year ago. Fluid sales within the market averaged 1.2 per cent below those of the pre- vious month but were stilli 4.7 per cent above a year' ago. Milk production continued the upward trend during May with total receipts from producers reaching 137.7 million pounds. Dairy re- ceipts declined seasonally by 2.2 per cent from those in May but were still 4.2 per cent above the level of a year ago. An estimated 1,269 pro- ducers were associated with the market during June. Daily production per pro-i ducer averaged 3,617 pounds an increase of 343 pounds or 10.5 per cent over last year. Producers will receive $10.20 and $9.32 per hun- dred weight, respectively, for their June deliveries of base and excess milk. The base price declined 2~ from last month but is still $1.58 above a year ago. The excess price increased 2~ from last month and is $1.21 above a year ago. The weighted aver- age price for all milk in June reached $9.12 per hundred weight, up 2e5 from May and $1.37 above a year ago. Monroe ire alls Thursday, July 22, 9:30 a.m.--Transformer fire in Tualco Valley. Sunday, July 25, 1:15 a.m.--Aid call to Highway 2 accident. No aid required. Monday, July 26, 4:30 p.m.-Chimney fire on Old Sultan Rd., minimal damage reported. Monday, July 26, 6:00 p.m.--Truck fire at intersec- tion of SR 522 and Highway 2. Fire was extinguished on arrival. Sunday, August 8 and about twice as many of the glory- crazed water pilots are pre- dicted to descend upon the Sultan starting point as last year, according to Ron Wag- ner, Jaycee in charge of the race. "We could have close to 100 entries," he said. "Already, 30 people have contacted me about it." In last years, race, 46 entrants finished the river course. So many entrants are expected that Wagner is con- sidering running the race in "heats," with rafts and pole- powered vessels getting an earlier start than the swifter kayaks and canoes. Under such a method, Wagner hopes most of the entries will cross the Lewis St. bridge finish line at about the same time. Last year, one raft pulled across the finish line more than seven hours after it started. "Everyone else had packed up and gone home," Wagner said. Because of the large turnout expected for the raft race itself, the Golden Barrel event was "bagged" this year, he said. "There was just no way we could work both the raft race and the Golden Barrel," said Wagner. "It was too much of a hassle." He said the Jaycees hope to bring the event back next year. Meanwhile, the deadline for entry forms nears for raft race entries. There are four divisions of floating craft: canoe-kayak, fixed oar, poles and paddles ar d commercial hull. Trophies will be awarded for the first three finishes in each category, and prizes have also been added. Entry blanks can be ob- tained at the Monroe Youth Club, the Pit Stop Tavern, Curnutt's Appliance and Pat's Chevron. For additional informa- tion, contact Wagner at 794- 7013.
