TWELVE PLANNING STATE OFFICE BUILDING Work Out Specifications for Temporary Structure at Herring Request. DES MOINES, Nov. 30. (m-- Plans and specifications for a temporary state office building are being worked out at the request of Governor Herring:. The governor suggests an annex to' the state historical building in which might he housed the state board of educatio the state insurance department ^now in a downtown office building, the department of health and other boards and commissions scattered within several . blocks of the state house. The executive pointed out that he thought the annex might be constructed for around ?75,OOQ and that it would be possible to erect the structure as a civil works project, using federal funds largely. The project, he added, would relieve crowded conditions in departments, provide additional space for state documents and give work to unemployed. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE .FOR EVENING WEAR WEEKLY WAGES SHOW INCREASE Worker Cannot Buy as Much for Money as He Could Back in July. By CLAUDE A. JAGGER. Associated Pres Financial Editor. NEW YORK, Nov. 30. UP--The worker is earning slightly more per week than he was in July, with less exertion, but his wages will not purchase as much because of a rise to the cost of living, monthly statistics compiled by the national industrial . conference board show. Tie recovery in industrial production and in employment was pronounced between March, and the summer peak of production reached in July, but since then indices of industrial production show some recession. Employment since July, however, lias not only been maintained, but increased, by shortening hours of work under the NRA codes, and average weekly wages have gained a trifle since the aumer peak of industrial output. Average Increases. Average hours a week by industrial workers, the board's figures enow, increased from 32.2 last March to 42.6 in July. By September, however, they had decreased to MO REAL lady would swagger o course, but she may wear swagger coat, even for evening with perfect discretion.

Ayer. age weekly wages rose from $14.56 "in"' March to ?19.15 in July. With ioura shortened the rate of increase was retarded thereafter, but it was 519.16, or 31 cents higher in October. The employed workers gain in income from March to July meant a gain in purchasing power, but since then, the gain has not been continued, according to the board's figures. An index figure of real earnings, combining wages with the cost of living, rose .from 76.1 per cent of the 1923 level in March to this year, to 95.7 in July. By October, it had fallen back to 93.7. Keductlon ot Hours. "From all this," says the board's monthly report, "it must be clear that the salient fact in the status of the employed worker in comparison with July has been his reduction of hours. His purchasing power, his command over the things needful for living, has not increased. "On the other hand, there has been a greater gain in the number of employed workers than would have taken place without codes and agreements in a situation of slackening production."

E Brown, head of the soils department at Iowa State college here believes the Iowa system of soi management "fits in remarkably well" with the emergency program; of the AAA, he has announced. "We have been advocating pro curing greater crop yields an acre but not the increase of total production," he declared. "This has been recommended In order to cul the cost of production and obtain a greater profit an acre from the crop grown." "It is not the farmer who has followed our recommendations as to soil management and lias grown greater yields an acre who is responsible for the over production- it is the farmer who has not managed his soils, who has attempted to bolster up his decreasing' yields nn acre by bringing more and more acres Into cultivation who has brought about over production." To demonstrate the advantage of soil management Dr. Brown quoted figures showing that it required 112 acres of low yielding land to produce $1,000 net Income, while 37 acres of high yielding land produced 51,000 net return under average price conditions. The low yielding^ land required 4,133 bushels of corn or 37 bushels an acre to net the amount, while on the high yielding land a production of 2,64D bushels or 72 bushels an acre brought the same sum. The difference was due, Dr. Brown said, to a lower production cost. In Greek inscriptions and manuscripts generally there is no attempt to separate the words, and in early times no system of punctuation was employed. MOVIE ACTORS TAKE VICTORY Win at Least Temporarily in Fight Against Cut in Salaries. WASHINGTON, Nov. 30. (.¥-- Hollywood actors have won at least a temporary victory in their fight to strike from the motion picture code provisions designed to curtail their salaries. When Jiecovery Administrator Hugh S. Johnson returned from Warm Springs, Ga where the president signed the code, it was learned that an executive order issued then suspended for further investigation both the anti-raiding clause and the provision authorizing- the code authority to fine producers offering excessive inducement to new talent The writers, authors and dramatists w re exempted altogether from the anti-raiding provision, but that clause may become effective with respect to actors when Johnson has completed his investigation and reported .to President Roosevelt.
