Clear skies were predicted for most of the state Saturday, however, when a record-breaking amusement-seeking crowd ventured forth. The coolest spot in Iowa Friday night was Charles City where the thermometer recorded' 28 degrees, Federal Meteorologist Charles D. Reed reported. Omaha was the warmest reporting station Friday with 44 degrees. Traces of rain or snow were recorded in Charles City, Des Moines, Dubuque and Davenport Temperatures Saturday night probably will remain above freezing, Reed said. Skies Clear Here Saturday Following a day of freezing weather here Friday with continual threats of snow, a change in prevailing conditions took place Saturday morning. While the sky cleared at daybreak, the wind strengthened, the barometer was rapidly falling and the temperature was rising hourly. From 4 a, m. until after 21 p. m., Friday, the mercury hovered between 31 and 32 degrees. About 11:30 p. m., there was a one-degree rise, and the temperature held at 33 degrees until 6:30 a. m.

The Corn Empire celebration, which continued over three days in Ames and was a part of a state wide observance sponsored by^the Iowa Daily Press-association, came to its conclusion in Ames Saturday. Final events were the parade and concert by the 72-piece Iowa State college band in the downtown business district at 11 a, m.; the address of Prof. T. W. Sthultz of the department of agricultural economics at Iowa State college in the Twin Star theater at 1 p. m., and the close of the corn show [ cpmlucted for .three days in a "Ifiwnfwon store"room. r "~ 7 •"-•^ > Prizes in 1 the show were awarded Saturday, and exhibitors were to be permitted to remove their exhibits after 3 p. m. Many visitors in the city Saturday saw the corn exhibits, visited stores of Ames merchants where special sales events were arranged for them, and then prepared to attend the Iowa State homecoming 'ootball game at State field at 2 p. m. . . . There was a large gathering of shoppers and .out-of-town visitors in the business district Saturday morning. Parking space was scarce and store clerks were busy. The Ames merchants had coop- rated to the fullest extent with the Ames Daily Tribune-Times in jresenting the Corn Empire celebration here, and contributed 75 prizes which were awarded at the corn show. reserve bj ard that the application of codes aid processing taxes had retarded industrial activity. The dispute was the outbreak of a fight between the old and the new. On one side were officials of the treasury and federal reserve. On the other were chieftains of the recovery and agricultural programs. Th«Ir official statements scarcely reflected the controversy behind the scenes. The prospect that President Roosevelt might be asked to clarify the controversy was not far-fetched. Recovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson asserted the industrial' situation was just the reverse of that pictured in the reserve board's statement. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace countered the board's charge by blaming the recessio^ on the industries themselves. Officials of the reserve board stood firm. They pointed out their statement was based on research and statistics; thsir weekly bulletin came out Friday night, saying there had been a decline Jn industrial activity. What aroused Johnson and Wallace v.-as the statement that the decline had been "marked in those industries in which processing taxes and codes have become effective recently." Rejoinders came quickly. They mixed denial with explanation. Johnson telephoned E. A. Gold- enweiser, editor of the bulletins Sharp ,^rords were exchanged. r Engaged?

Government Boosts Gold Price Again WASHINGTON (DIE).— The government Saturday raised its price of newly mined American gold to $31.82 an ounce from the $31.76 level of Friday. The price was an over-night advance of six cents an ounce. Saturday's Washington price was $1.35 above the world price set in London Saturday. The London price was 1.29 shillings, eight pence, off one shilling, six pence, on the basis of noon exchange rates on the pound, $4.70. This was equivalent to $30.47 an ounce. Notice to Subscribers in Rural Towns The Tribune-Times is instituting carrier boy service in most of the rural towns of the county. Subscribers who have been getting their paper by mail may have it delivered to their homes for a slight extra charge, payable either in advance or weekly to the carrier boy. In towns where carrier boy service has been provided In the past, many persons who have been paying by the week are bAlng solicited now on an annual basis by contestants in the Tribune-Times circulation contest. Weekly subscribers should understand that transfer to an annual carrier basis does not cut off the compensation of their carrier boy. They will not pay him directly but he will receive his pay from the office. Only If weekly subscribers transfer to mall service, is the compensation of their carrier boys reduced. Both carrier boys and contestants are being provided with printed slips giving full details of both carrier and mail service. for a slip, Then the NRA ground out a statement. , , —ft saW ^oldetiwslser had ed Johnson the charge was "Inadvertent" Goldenweiser refused to confirm he had given Johnson any such assurance; "instead he said the bulletin was based on statistics. In addition to editing the reserve board's bulletin Goldeh- weiser heads the board's division; of research and statistics; members of the board refused to be drawn into the controversy. Johnson elaborated with the contention: "Practically every major industry has been operating under a code since August Those tot under codes have hoen operating under presidential re-employment agreements in which the provisions were usually much stricter than" the codes. And yet; with the exception of the steel industry, every report we have received from major industries has shown a definite upward trend." Financial observers Relieved Johnson referred to employment and payroll gains, rather than to output of industries. Output was- shown in the reserve board statement to have declined further in October than in September when it touched 84 per cent of the 1923(Continued on Page Two) Slater Legion Is Reorganized Friday Night It's just another professional matchmaker's tale, declare Ishh^l MacDonald and Prof. C.

John Herman was elected commander. Other officers are: Harvey Sholund, vice commander; Stanley Mosey, adjutant; Bert Sutter, finance officer; Simon Winsett, sergeant-at-arms; Oscar Johnson, chaplain. The post succeeded in signing ) 12 members, all paid up. This equals 80 per cent of the quota fixed for the Slater post for next year. It is the first post among the ll in Stjory county to reach 8ti per cent of its quota. District Commander Wilkie L. Harper; Chef de Gare J. R. Hat- :ery of the Story counJy Voiture No. 2Sb, Forty and Eight; Commander Charles W. Yeager of the county Legion council, and other county and post officers were imong those who cume here to see the post thru its reorganization. The Slater auxiliary, under eadevship of Mrs. H. W. Marshall, president, took an active part In he reorganization, and served a unch following the meeting. The program prior to the business meeting of the Slater veterans Included an Inspirational mes- age from Oley Nelson, noted Slater G. A.

DONELSON DES MOINES, (UEJ—Waen and if Hussia is recognized, the Soviet will find in Iowa a storehouse of goods and materials they need- worth $824,017,000, a United Press surrey showed Saturday. Russia will find that lowans lave for sale annually about $170,000,000 worth, of livestock.. In-1932 :o^a farme^f'marketed $93,489,p0|) n swine,- $74;120,006'fo cattle and ?4,184,000 in sheep. They will find an area whose farmers annually produced between 1922-1931 $255,047,000 in corn, $75,000,000 in oats, and $9,101,000 in wheat. The Jan. 1, 1933 total value of livestock and grain on Iowa farms was $356,017,000 of which livestock contributed a value of $197,715,000 and crops a total of $158,302,000. Perhaps the most important discovery Russians will make in Iowa is that the state is a leading producer of farm machinery and tractors. In their efforts to mechanize the nation, Russians have made the tractor a vital factor. In Iowa they would find factories that in 1930 produced more than $10,000,000 worth of farm machinery About half of this volume was tractors. Another important industry in which Russian traders will find supplies is the annual $402,000,000 .business in foodstuffs processed in Iowa plants. General manufacturing plans within the state produced articles acceptable to Russian consumption- in 1930 valued at $53,200,000. The farm machinery, general manufacturing and foodstuffs industries, according to the 1930 census, employed approximately 23,000 persons. Among the cities and towns in which factories that probably would directly feel the effect of Russian grade are Charles City, Waterloo, Mason City, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque, Davenport, Perry, Ottumwa, Marshall(Continued on Page Two.)

Opening hours In the morning will range from 7. a. m. for food markets and hardware stores, to 8:30 a. m. for women's apparel stores and other lines not requiring early morning service. Judges Select Prize Windows On Main Street The window trimmers of the Ames food markets know their groceries, and also their art. There is continual rivalry among them in the quality and attractiveness of their window designs. A committee of judges has inspected several specially decorated windows in connection with the Ames Corn Ei.pire celebration, and selected four food markets among five stores to receive special mention for their efforts. The committee awarded first Pla$e in window display to the Red Arrow store No. 5. at 200 Main Angry Words Passed by Both Sides WASHINGTON <EE) — Negotiations between the Eord Motor .company and striking workers in eastern plants seemed Saturday to hold the.key to a^mounting controversy between Henry Ford and the Roosevelt administration. President Roosevelt gave full support to Recovery Administrator Johnson's determination to institute proceedings against the billionaire motor manufacturer the moment he has evidence that Ford is violating the automobile code. The code, which Ford did not sign, imposes three main obligations: 1. Maximum hour and minimum wage schedules. 2. To submit operations reports to the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce on employment "and payrolls. 3.

This brot a sharp reply from Ford headquarters that the company was obeying the code and that Johnson "has assumed to talk like a dictator and the supreme court com-1 bined." The collective bargaining issue was much more complicated. But. it appeared likely to bring the real show down in the Ford dispute. Johnson laid stress on a statement that Edsel Fold "told me they never would consent to any collective bargaining." While the Ford officials have received a delegation of the strikers, there has been no indication as to whether Ford, long a foe of unionism, will permit his workers to bargain thru tteir union leaders. $6,107,225 Alotted to Non-federal Jobs, \ Several la.
