On the Sunset highway over Sno- qualmie Pass there is a short detour in Cle Elum and a few short stretches i of one-way road several miles east of North Bend. There is good gravel to !the summit and Gold Creek camp. From here to the National Forest boundary, the road is chucky and has considerable water on the road. There is also two miles of construc- tion work. Between Easton and Cle Elum the road is in good condition with the exception of one short detour just before entering Cle Elum which has two sharp turns. The road is open to Mount Baker and in good condition but the lodge is closed for the season. There is no snow in Heather Meadows. On the Pacific highway there is a detour just north of Mount Vernon. Traffic going south detour at Burling- ton and going north detour at Mount Vernon. The detour is paved.

The rye market continued independ- ently firm as a result of continued good export demand. The movement has been fairly large but stocks in the markets have remained relatively small as the bulk of the receipts have moved directly into consuming chan- nels or for export. Prices were only about lc lower for the week with No. 2 rye selling at Minneapolis at 50@ 91ฝc and at CMcago around 99c $1.00 per bushel. With weather favorable for matur- ing the late crop old corn was being marketed in larger quantities and prices of cash grain followed the full decline of about 4c in future prices for the week ending October 21. Now corn is already moving in the South- west, several ears of new corn having decline prices are near an export basisness was claimed by the trade to have been consummated with both Liverpool and the continent. Receipts at the principal markets were about 2,000,000 bushels larger than for the previous week but were only about one-half as large as a year ago. No 3 yellow corn was quoted at the close of the week at the prlncipal Central Western markets at 78@83c per bushel. The oats market declined about 1c for the week, influenced principally by the decline in other grains. De- mand was less active but receipts con- tinued of small volume and good qual- ity grain sold readily. Lightweight oats and the lower grades sold more slowly. No. 3 white oats were quoted at the close of the week at Minne- apolis at 42@43&c, Chicago 45@47ฝc, and Kansas City 46(49c per bushel. A continued and good demand both from local malsters and from export- ers held the barley market independ- ently firm. While prices declined slightly with other grains, malting grades held quite firm with U. S. Spe- cial No. 2 quoted at Milwaukee at 76 @85c per bushell and best malting types selling at Minneapolis and Chi- cago at 73ฝ@75c per bushel. No. 3 barley was quoted at Denver at 72@ 77c per bushel. The flax market declined about 6e per bushel, influenced principally by heavy receipts and large hedging sales. At the lower prices, however, both crushers and traders were re- ported to be buying more actively. Dry grain of good quality was being taken readily at Minneapolis at $2.03 @2.08 per bushel. The damp grain which comprised a considerable per- centage of the daily arrivals was mov- ing slowly. Argentine shipments to the United States totaled about 428,- 000 bushels for the week according to trade reports and seed for November shipment was quoted at Buenos Aires at $1.66ฝ. The visible supply of flax- seed in Argentina was given at 3,200,- 000 bushels, a decrease of about 800,- 000 bushels from the previous week. The Argentine flax acreage this sea- son is now estimated at 6,916,000 acres compared with 6,672,000 acres last year.
