UP)-The Cedar Rapida Gazette, in an article by Verne Marshall, editor, says letters purporting to disclose a statewide protection setup for slot machine operators in Iowa have been introduced in evidence before the "graft" grand jury in Sioux City. The letters, the Gazette says, were found when business records and correspondence of Frank Brisbois of Fonda, Iowa, were seized. Brisbois testified before the grand jury last Friday. Brisbois was brought to Sioux City on a subpena for the Woodbury county grand jury before he appeared on Friday. Several of the letters, purportedly signed by Max Langer of Dubucjue, described 1933 meetings in Des Moines of the slot machine men or committees representing them, the Gazette says. The newspaper says the letters stated the "state head," the attorney for the slot operators and · "the writer" were at these meetings. The "state head" was mentioned several times, the newspapers says, and there was reference to the "legal headquarters" and its desire that all contributors to the protection fund send in lists of the locations of their machines, so the machines would not be molested. Brisbois the paper says, denied paying protection to anyone and said he "barely knew" Mac Langer. Saturday afternoon an airplane was sent to Dubuque with a sub- pena for Langer from the Woodbury county grand jury and a search warrant for his premises, the paper says, but Langer, it was learned, had "flown" to a cottage across the river from Dubuque and in Wisconsin.

DEALINGS DULL AS WEEK OPENS (Using Temperatures Cause Stock to Drink Heavily and Lower Pirces. CHICAGO, July 1. £)-- Rising :emperatures were factors in today's livestock trade as all grades tended to drink heavily, and buyers \vere not favorable to water-fills. As a consequence trade was slowed down. The swine market was irregular with weights below 230 pounds about steady with Friday's figures. jut with other weights tending 10 cents down. Hogs weighing 200 to 230 pounds brought ?9.555?65 gen- rally and topped at ?9.75, the same Deak as Friday. The major packers received 7,000 out of today's receipts of 16,000, making them independent of the open market. In the cattle runs early sales were limited to shippers and speculative buying. Bidding in rank and iile of steers and she stock was 15 to 25 cents lower, and a few sales were made on that basis but the large amount of water consumed by stock tended to soften the incline, making dressed beef costs practically as high as last week-end. High dressing beeves were scarce. One prime lot was held at $12.75, while the best steers and yearlings sold were at strong prices with a top of $12.00. Cows were likewise scarce and steady. Bulls were slow and steady. Vealers slipped 25 cents off at $8.00 down. A very few sold at $8.50. Today's cattle receipts were 11.000. Fat larnbs and yearlings were selling slowly and around steady to 15 cents lower. Sheep were steady. Today's receipts were 13,000.

Mason City Livestock Swimming Is Hazardous Sport When Carelessly Attempted by Anyone Not nearly all children have tie opportunity to learn under proper guidance to swim in water that is not contaminated with filth. Children who go to well-conducted summer camps do learn to swim with a high degree of safety. Many junior and senior high school youth learn to swim in the school pool, and the various Y's, clubs, and public recreation centers make available like opportunity for many children. For their safety, all children should, of course, acquire this skill early. Many a child loses his life in the "old swimming bole" of the country places. Fatalities are not infrequent at picnics. Children over eight or ten and adolescents, with little or no swimming skill, will, under the spell of the crowd, take dangerous risks. Sometimes a life is thus lost while the parent helplessly looks on. Often the child will disregard the parent's warning "to go no farther." At such times an awful price is paid for disobedience, and this disobedi ence goes back to early childhood when the victim might have learned to accept NO even in adolescence. A safe rule for a novice in water is to wade out no deeper than up to his arm pits. Until he can swim fairly well his life is seriously imperiled in deeper water. Furthermore, safety demands that he know tie nature of the bottom of the swimming place. Lives Lost by Disease. Perhaps more lives are lost by contracting diseases from contaminated water than from drowning. The consequences are much slower, less dramatic, and are not always discerned as having originated in the water. The average person swimming gets a. good deal of water in the mouth and nose--two leading avenues for receiving infections in i the body. Besides, skin infections ' and ear infections occasionally result from swimming in polluted water. Not all such dangerous water is limited to beaches and streams near big cities. Some of the swimming Soles in rural areas, especially during drouths, are very hazardous to health. Questions and answers sent in care of this paper always are welcome.

NEW YORK. July 1. (^--Rising prices were the rule in today's stock market although the trading volume was comparatively small. Some of the oils, steels and specialties were among the principal gainers. Many traders were on the sidelines pending the outcome of the battle in the house over the utilities holding company bill. Continental Can, General Railway Signal and Spiegel-May-Stern got up about 2 points each. Other gainers of fractions to around a point or so included Standard Oil of New Jersey, Amerada, American Telephone, Consolidated Gas, Westinghouse, Case, du Pont, Great Northern preferred, U. S. Steel, Inland Steel, Timken Roller Bearing and Chrysler. The late tone was firm. Transfers approximated 700,000 shares. Followers of the carriers were interested in the preliminary returns of class one railroads for May which disclosed a net loss, after all charges, of approximately $5,500.000 as against a deficit in April of 58,256,900. Some concern was expressed over the hesitancy of commodities during the past month. Dun's index of wholesale commodity prices today was off 1.6V per cent from its June 1 position and stood at its lowest level since December last year. Stock List NEW VOKK STOCKS. NEW YORK. July 1.

Trade during the i^ast three weeks has been steady and at a higher rate than in the first week of June. The steady demand Irom mills and the firm replacement market in the large producing states caused holders of spot wools to market to adhere quite firmiy to current asking prices. Weakness of wool prices apparent during the middle of the past month have largely disappeared. Lamson Brothers Market Letter MARKET REVIEW. CHICAGO. July i.-Wheat--A little scllinir, developed at the opening today as weather conditions generally were somewhat belter but strength soon appeared !n Kansas City and Minneapolis markets and renewed buying in our market caused prices to advance readily and sell at new highs from the recent upturn. Additional reports of finding blatlt rust in parts of Nebraska and Kansas were influential factors. Cromwell in his statement on conditions in Nebraska said this is the heaviest, most widely spreading and advancing epidemic seen in 15 years in any winter wheat state at the same stage or the wheat crop. General trade in the wheat market today was of rather broad proportions and there appears to be more inquiries by outside Interest to buy wheat and offers, except of local traders are noticeably light. A good trading market is indicated with the possible extent of the development of rust through the west and northwest wheat country, the principle price determining factor. Com--Corn prices wcrt- inclined to lag today, most of the strtncth occurring at d i f - ferent times cominc: from the advancing wheat market. A small increase was shown in the visible, in Galvcston. which was believed to be Argentine corn. From Washington camfl the news that Argentine corn had been reported offered delivered at Atlantic ports at 72K-C duty paid. A processing tax of 30c a bushe'l on rye will be in effect from Aug. 1. 1935 to Dec. 51. 1937. if the senate amendments to the AAA act arc passed by congress. The AAA officials state that they fully expect to inaugurate a rye program in- cluijins acreage a d j u s t m e n t and benefit payment to producers, without the aid of the stimulant "f advancing wheat prices we do nol look for any p a r t i c u l a r strength to materialize in corn for the moment.
