The action followed a series of 27 public hearings held throughout the state, at which producers held almost unanimously that there should be no increase in the price of milk, and consumers made the same plea to the state. The bureaus automatic formula has been pegged largely to fluctuations in the cost of manufacturing milk. The bureau had served notice that the sharp advance In the price of this product would force an automatic one-cent rise in the price of a quart of milk throughout the state July 1. Woodbum said the formula has been abandoned "at least until milk marketing conditions are more stable. He said such factors as heavy government buying of manufacturing milk under the Marshall plan had thrown the formula out of -whack.
