CHy OU W-Ourtte, Jmly 21, 1848 Pollination of Corn to Be Favorable Den Molncs (ff) —It seems probable that the important pollination period of the Iowa corn crop will occur under very favqrable conditions, the weekly weather and crop bulletin said Tuesday. Present soil moisture is adequate and the past week provided another period of favorable growing conditions, the joint report of the state and federal departments of agriculture and the weather bureau said. In Pollination The corn crop is now entering the important pollinating stage with 17 per cent in tassel as of last Saturday. During the next 10 days, the bulk of the state's corn will be tasseling and silking. Present development of the crop is about 5 days earlier than nor- mal. The Indications, the report said, are that the probability of :rost damage and soft corn is be- ow normal. Oats Harvest Slow The oats harvest was slowed up >y rains last week and only 22 per cent was harvested as of last aturday. Reports of yields still are fragmentary, but indicate a jumper crop, the report said. The soybean outlook is" favor- labe and pastures have improved materially, the report said, but it added that grasshoppers are doing considerable damage to corn and beans.

Russia Claims Invention of 1st Airplane Washington,- (U.R)—Russia Tuesday claimed it built the 1st air- Diane in 1882. That was more than JO years before the American Wright brothers made their famous flight at Kitty Hawk, N ; Car- This "first" was chalked up by Radio Moscow beside other suddenly -d-'scovered historical achievements in science and engineering being claimed almost daily by the Russians. Here are some excerpts from a broadcast to the Russian people which was overheard here by government monitors: "Our country is the birthplace of aviation. The first airplane in the world was built in Russia in 1882 by Designer Mozhaisky. Only 20 years later did the Americans build their own 1st airplane. "The famous Russian scientists Lomonosov, Mendeleev, Shukov, and others are the founders of present-day aviation theory- The USSR is also the birthplace of multi-engined planes, the 1st of which was designed in Russia in 1914.

Clark has refused to order a criminal investigation of former, army officers who negotiated . wartime railroad freight rates for the government. He said in a letter to Chairman George Bender, (R-Ohio), of a house executive expenditures subcommittee that, at present, he has no facts to justify such an inquiry. Such an investigation, he said, would do "irreparable damage" to the officers' reputations. Improper to Start "Until facts which justify a criminal investigation are found to exist," he said, "it would be improper for me to order one." Witnesses before Bender's subcommittee testified that during the war the railroads "gouged" the government. Bender turned the matter over to Clark with a demand that he investigate some railroad executives who served as army and navy negotiators during hostilities.

Murray led in all counties and had a 4-to-l margin over Dr. Henry J. McGregor of Great Falls on the basis of returns from 480 of the state's 1,142 precincts. His followers regarded his renomin- ntion as assured. McGregor was the only primary opponent against Murray, who has been in the senate since 1934. Torn J.
