Although only five loads were weighed in at the local mill Sun- day, approximately 7,335 bush- els were unloaded during the day and up into the evening Monday. The wheat has had around a 60 test with a 12.8 moisture con- tent. No wheat was allowed to un- load Tuesday until around 3 p.m., because of too much mois- ture, but the rest of the day showed a slow, but steady st- ream of trucks unloading.

Jacks also reported that as of Tuesday afternoon very little wheat was being dumped at Ahrberg's Mill at Stillwater and none had been reported at their mill in Cushing, mostly due to the high moisture content.

Since this time the day is dedicated to the freedom that symbolizes America, a flag that is to be respected by all Americans. It denotes a positive act of pride, performed by those who realize the importance of keep- ing the red, white, and blue symbol of our nation flying in the breeze. We, as Americans, on this day should not be lax in the manner in which we display our flag or the way we behave when the flag is in our presence. The vent fact that we are free to decide how we want to honor the flag should be the best reason to wave it. Let all of us be proud of our flag and hon- or it by displaying "Old Glory" on this day. legion Auxiliary To Meeg The Perkins American Legion Auxiliary will meet MOnday af- ternoon, June 12, at 2 o'clock in the home of Mrs. Eva Woodrum.
