Hte wife, Mrg. Blanche r Barrows, a quiet 23-year-old red haired woman, was recovering from minor injuries. Barrows' death was ftipected momentarily, physicians laid. The Barrows were surrounded by a hastily formed posse in a wooded section near Dexter early Monday. Firing machine guns and revolvers, the gang burst from the wotids and ran thru the cordon of guards. Clyde and his wife fell wounded. The others proceeded to Polk City, where they commandeered an automobile and continued their flight The chase Monday was one of the most gensaUonal in Iowa, criminal annals. The trail of the gang led officer! over 300 miles of country roads thru 14 counties. The trio forced drivers from two automobiles in their flight Airplanes and armored automobiles were brot into use, but the trio were successful in eluding capture. The trail of the gang, wanted by authorities for murder of Wts Harryman, Newten c«UBty, Mo., constable; Harry McGinnls, Joplin, Mo. detective; J. W. Bucher, filling station attendant in Hillsboro, Tex., and Alma Humphrey, Alma, Ark., officer, started at Platte City, Mo., last week. FARM NEWS Consumption of Wheat in U. S. Fails to Offset Export Losses Altho, human consumption of wheat in the United States has increased in the past few years, it has not gained rapidly enough to offset the faster decline in expbrt trade, Murl McDon. Id, assistant director of the extension service at Iowa State college and in charge of the fleld forces working 6n the wheat adjustment program s"ald in an interview. "Figures from the United States department of agriculture show that In 1928, the United States used 498 million bushels of wheat for flour and in 1982, 506 million bushels." said Mr. McDonald. "We used 83 million bushels for feed in 1828 and 79 million bushels in 1932. In 1928 we used only 55 million bushels of wheat for stock feed and 138 million in. 1932. Where farmers used only 8 million bushels for 'farm use' in 1928, they used 16 million in 1982. "But exports dwindled from 142 million in 1928 to what is estimated to be 35 million bushels for the year ending June 30, 1933." The wheat acreage adjustment plan offers farmers an opportunity to adjust their wheat acreage for 1934 and 1935 by an amount not to exceed 20 per cent, the exact reduction to be determined s'oonr by Secretary Wallace, said Mr. McDonald. In return the federal government will make a benefit payment to farmers who contract to maki this reduction. Eveu with an estimated 1933 production of 495 million bushels of wheat, said Mr. McDonald, the United States still faces the problem of a surplus if some form of acreage control ig not adopted! The carryover from the past year is approximately 388 million bushels in the United States alone. This makes a supply for th« coming year of more than 860 million bushels. The United Stater, department of agriculture ectimates that this will leave a surplus of 200 million bushels. Statistics show that increased wheat yields follow short wheat crops. The United States can expect about normal production next year ii the acreage is carefully planned. A production of 700 or 800 million bushels next year, which can nor; mally be expected ff some adjustment plan is not adopted, would leave the United States with another surplus which would contitf- ue to depress wheat prices. BAHROWS LINKED WITH MASSACRE (Continued from Page One') *d Chevrolet. They were suspected of being members of the BArrow gang. The pair escaped as the Iowa officers stopped at the Omaha police station for renfofcemeflts. The officers almost overtook the fleeing pair as the driver shopped to pay toll on the Douglas street bridge but lost their quarry after passing Into the Omaha downtown section. A heavy guard was thrown about the northern borders of Io*a TUBS- in a belief that escaping members of th« desperate gang, who •hot their way thru a posse MOB. .. were headed for desolaf* areas of Minnesota or North Dakota. When U«t seen, the fugitives, Barrows and his wife tad Sherman, ver« speeding west... from Snth*r!»nd.

Owen D; Young, a leading industrialist, said in a letter on Mr. McGuire, "I know of no better use for a federal public fund than to appropriate some part of it for the Improvement of our rural schools." W. J. Cooper, fideral commissioner of education, sa,id, "I agree with your proposal entirely." In an editorial comment on Mr. McGulre's letter, the Philadelphia Bulletin said, "The request ought to be echoed from every state in the Union and ought to receive favorable comment In Washington. . . He is saying something in the interest of thousands of communities all over the nation." &ME8 RECOVERY DRIVl!
