S. Ray of the Federal Bureau of Crop Estimates forecasts a total wheat production considerably larger than that of last year and an oat crop somewhat smaller than that grawn in 1920. Barley production will be but little more than that of last year, while the rye crop is expected to be much larger. Apple prospects are very jrood, peaches show an increase over last year, while the pear crop will be smaller than in 1920. Winter wheat in Washington on June 1 was 96% of normal, indicat ing a yield of 27.5 bushels per acre. The 1,085,000 acres for harvest this year are» expected to produce 29, --790,000 bushels as compared with ■20,120,000 bushels in 1920 and 20, --128,000 bushels in 1919. The area sown to spring wheat this year is 1,246,000 acres or 83% of the 1920 acreage. On June 1 the average condition of the spring wheat prop was 91, indicating a yield of 17.3 bushels per acre and a total production of 21,543,000 bushels. In 1920, the 1,501,000 acres of spring wheat produced 17,862,000 bushels, while in 1919, 1,388,000 acres pro duced 18,877,000 bushels. The combined acreage of winter and spring wheat this year is 2, --331,000 acres as compared with 2, --:,29,000 acres in 1920 and an aver age of 2,103,000 acres for the past trm years. The total wheat produc tion this year, as indicated by June 1 conditions is 51,333,000 bushels, against 37,982,000 bushels in 1920 and an average production of 42,428, --000 bushels for the past ten years. Washington has 320,000 acres of oats this season as compared with 323,000 acres in 1920. The oat crop, on June 1, averaged 96 per cent of normal, indicating a yield of 45.1 hushels per acre and a total produc tion of 14,438,000 bushels. In 1920 the crop amounted to 15,052,000 bushels, while the average produc tion for 1915-19 was 12,124,000 bushels. With 104,000 acres, barley shows a small decrease in acreage this season as compared with the 110,000 acres last year. The condition of the crop on June 1 was 92 per cent of normal and indicated a yield of 36.3 bushels per acre and a total production of 3,903,000 bushels, against 3,883,000 hushels grown in 1920. Rye dropped from a condition of 99 per cent of normal on May 1 to 97 per cent on June 1 and the crop is now placed at 597,000 bushels as compared with the May 1 estimate of 609,000. The 1920 crop amounted to 370,000 bushels. The hay crop of the state declin ed from 98 on May 1 to 96 on June 1 and now gives promise of 1,875,000 tons, of which 1,829,000 ton* are tame hay and 46,000 tons are wild hay. The 1920 production was 1, --659,000 tons. The 70,000 acres of clover for hay this season are slightly in excess of the 68,000 acres in 1920. Condition of crop June 1 was 100 per cent against 9L per cent a year ago. The state has 157,000 acres of al falfa this season, or practically the same acreage as last year. June 1 condition of the crop was 96 against 89 one year ago. The apple crop of the state on June 1 averaged 93 per cent of nor mal as compared with 85 per cent one year ago. June 1 condition fore cast a crop of 20,666,000 bushels, 80 per cent of which is reckoned as commercial. Pears, on June 1, were but 70 per cent of normal as compared with 79 per cent one year ago. Preliminary estimates place this season's crop at 1,486,000 bushels as compared with 2,246,000 bushels last year. Peaches give promise of a crop of 1,268,000 bushels as compared with 423,000 bushels in 1920. Peach trees in many localities still show some effects of the hard freezes in the winter of 1919-1920. This weakened condition of the trees to gether with hard frosts in some sec tions this spring has lowered pro duction and the crop on June 1 averaged but 59 per cent of normal. NEW REGULATIONS FOR HIGHWAY USE Highway Protection The highway protection force which will enforce road regulations after August Ist., will not be organized until July Ist., at which time but twenty-five men will bo appointed. Director McArdle of the department of Efficiency emphasizes the fact that the men will not be mere "speed cops" but will be expected to prevent the misuse of highways that leads to their destruction and to generally enforce the rules of the road adopt ed by the last legislature. Rules of the Road New rules of the road follow the recommendations of a national con ference of automobile dealers, clubs and highway organizations. The new laws give legal force to common sense and well known road rules, doing away with confusing regula tions in different sections that con fuse drivers. Important rules which the Depart ment of Efficiency will enforce under the new statutes are: Pedestrians on public highways between a half hour after sunset and a half hour before sunrise, shall travel on left side of road and step off traveled portion when meeting a vehicle. Street and interurban cars and emergency vehicles have right of way; owners of private machines can not use gongs or sirens adopted for ambulances, police or fire department machines. Drivers must obey all orders of traffic officers. Motorists meeting with collision or accident must stop; render assist ance when needed, give required in formation as to identity; and when injuring any person report same to nearest chief of police, or mayor, or sheriff of county. Mufflers must not be cut out in city or country. Licenses, bearing signature of own er must be carried in container hav ing transparent cover, on steering post or instrument board. After August 1, drivers license required. May be forfeited by a justice of the peace after second conviction of violation of automo bile laws. Speed limits are unchanged except for auto trucks for which a sliding rate is given, and auto busses carry ing ten or more passengers which must not exceed 25 miles an hour on unpaved highways; cities and towns forbidden to enforce ordin ances conflicting with state speed laws; racing on public highway is forbidden. To pass another vehicle going in the same direction, give one short blast as a first signal; if unheeded, give three blasts; if still unheeded, you may pass without further signal at first convenient spot but must not decrease speed immediately to throw dust in the other driver's eyes. "One way" signs may be. posted and must be obeyed on narrow park drives, defiles or* passes. At least three days' notice of clos ing any highway for repairs, etc., Important Announcement to the Public There is scarcely any announcement that is more important to the most of us than that cheerful message that the high prices are coming down. We take pleasure therefore in announcing that all "Uni versal" electric appliances have been very materially reduced and that such reduction becomes effective at the factory on July 15th. The retailer in the reorganization must accept the reduction even though he bought a: the peak price. We are therefore adjusting our prices as set by the factory and will not wait until the fifteenth. The new prices on all these heat and labor saving appliances become effective with the publication of this notice. We respectfully invite you to come in and inspect the appliance that has heretofore been just a little out of reach —at the new price—and with the privilege of paying on the installment plan, you can now afford those things that make housekeeping a pleasure.
