By KtTBY A. BLACK Globe-Gazette Washington Bureau. WASHINGTON--Iowa is one of the 30 states on the preferred list for receiving further public works administration funds. According to extremely variable quotas, which Public Works Administrator Ickes contends are nearer being guesses than quotas, 18 states and the District of Columbia have, to date, received more than their equitable share of public works allotments. All applications now coming in to the administration will be studied and considered on its merits, as in the past, but the administration will be "a little more discriminating" in its allocation of its remaining funds. The "quotas" are based partly on population and unemployment, arid all types of allotments, federal grants and . loans, and highway garnts, etc., are included in the state totals. The over-quota states are Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Idaho, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.

He gathered the materials and made his own chairs, table, dressers and every article of furniture he used in his house. "This pioneer cooked over a fireplace. He baked potatoes In the hot ashes. A long legged kettle was used for cooking certain foods. He gave me the saw with which he sawed the small boards for his house. This saw had belonged to his father and he said it was more than 100 years old when he gave it to me." Mrs. Gallagher said that she was given this saw more than 40 years ago. Her son has the saw now. She also owned a dresser made by Mr. Johnson from timber taken near the Turkey river. KANSAS CITY CRA1N KANSAS CITY;, Dec. 7. (m--Wheat, 25 cars; 'i cent lower lo H cent higher.

NEW YORK, Dec. 7. (/P)--The stock market worked upward today under buying in rails and a wide variety of speciltieg. Utilities and many of the old standbys among industrials, ruled only steady to moderately firmer. American Telephone and U. S. Steel were up major fractions but advances of around 2 r. more points embraced du Pont, Union Pacific, Delaware and Hudson, Armour Preferred and Auburn Transfers approximated 1,650,000 shares. There was an absence of important naws from either the political or economic sectors. .The dollar firmed in terms of pounds and French franca as the domestic gold rate was again unchanged, but currency fluctuations were rather narrow. Equity specialties were in moderate demand and gains of fractions to more than a point predominated in the early hours. "Quiet accumulation" was the phrase used by bullish commission houses. Grains, cotton and other commodities were mildly mixed. Bonds, including U. S. government securities, were somewhat irregular.

NEW YOK, Dec. 7- f/TJ--The market tor U. S. government bonds was not greatly enlivened today by the announcement of details respecting the Dec. 13 treasury financing, the retention of the 524.Ot cent gold price and the general firmness of the dollar In rellton to foreign currencies. Dealings In the federals were rather small during the first half. ,of the session ·with quotations showing narrow irregularity. Gains of two-thirty-seconds to three-thlrty- seconds were about balanced In number of losses ranging from one-thfrty-second to five-thirty-seconds of a point. Some ot the treasury Issues were unchanged. Corporation issues ware firm. Some of the secondary classifications edged into new Jil^h ground for Ihe current recovery with rails leading the way. Utilities and Industrials had a few slightly reactionary spots, although the more active features tended higher. There were moderate advances in Columbia Gas and Electric- 5'fi, Detroit Edison 4Ws. Lautaro Nitrate 6'a, GootJyear 5's t Unites Drug 5's and Western Union .Vs. In the foreign section prices moved divergently under limited dealings. French Issues lost 1 to 2 points; British loans were steady.

CHICAGO, Dec. 7. ff--The federal surplus relief corporation 19 buying hogs at eight of the leading markets in the nation, but how many and for what purpose livestock men were unable to say today. Word that the government was buying hogs had been rumored around the yards for several days but were generally believed only to day. The prices paid are the pre vailing ones asked by sellers. The eight markets are Chicago Kansas City, Omaha, South St Paul, St. Joseph, East St. Louis Sioux City and Indianapolis. The utmost secrecy surrounds th purchases. About the only thing known certainly is that only good and choice butcher hogs from 160 to 300 pounds were being taken. Parole Is Revoked. OSAGE, Dec. 7.--Ina May Bergo, who was paroled after she was sentenced to 150 days In Mitchell county jail Oct. 9, 3931, In default ot a $500 fine for selling intoxicating liquors, was brought into court Tuesday for violation of parole. Judge T. A. Beardmore's decree was six months in Mitchell county jail. Lamson Brothers Market Letter Wheat--Wheat was nervous and IncHneil erratic movements today, y e t there was no weakness. The m a r k e t paid little atten- ilon to the strength In atoefcs and seemed to derive Its flrmnesa from the stronp tone In coarse grains. There was nothing in the new.i to attract attention. Around 700,001) tmsh^ls of Manitoba. 1 * were reported taken for export In all positions. Relative easiness at Kansas City naJ some e f f e c t on ptlce-i here. The forecast for unsettled anrt colder over the great e r part of the \vl nt e r and aprlnp areas had some e f f e c t on the July delivery which was Inclined to lose ground as compared with the May. Corn and oaln were really the features OT the market. Both Rraina showed a declijediy firm undertone and prices averaged higher. The tendency to liohl hack corn with tl:e assistance of government loans In riecomtng more pronouncfld. Movement of cash com to terminal markets contlmies to fall o f f sharply and only .1,000 bushels were hooked in the chfcago market. Private reports from Iowa indicated that ]mlustrJc3 In that state hnd started to wire direct to country «te- vators In nn effort to bring out offerings. A little export business was understood to have been put through although amounts were lacking. It looks as though the greater activity Is to be seen in coarse grains and strength there may continue to aid wheat. Injured In Fall.

The number of Confederate veterans receiving pensions in Kentucky decreased from 5,000 in 1913 to 103 in 1933. J-adies Aid Entertained.
