CEDAR RAPIDS, Feb. 22. /B-The Western league, one of the oldest of baseball circuits, was set today for another battle for existence. Another of the drastic changes which has shifted the lineup of the circuit frequently In recent years, tv-as effected here yesterday when Pueblo and Denver, Colo., were voted out because of "business reasons." In their place Bock Island and Davenport were granted franchises. Two Iowa cities that have been without organized baseball for several years, Sioux City and Cedar Rapids, were invited to join.

Upp Brooklyn Dodgers Are Ready to Name Leader for 1934 Ball Season BROOKLYN, Feb. 22. UP)--The Brooklyn Dodgers, who usually manage to do something to keep the baseball fans interested, even if it's only stealing an already occupied base, were ready today to sign a new manager for the 1934 season. The indications were that Charles ~D. (Casey) Stengel would get the first call. Stengel, a coach under Max Carey, Is on his way to Brooklyn from his home In Glendale, Cal., in response to a call sent by the Brooklyn directorate even before yesterday's announcement that Carey had been deposed. There was a possibility that Casey's loyalty to Carey might lead him to turn down the job, if it was offered, and in that case the general idea was that Marty McManus would be summoned. McManus, who has been closely associated with Bob Quinn, Brooklyn's general manager, since he broke in with the St. Louis Browns in 1920, recently was signed by the Dodgers as a player. er Iowa to Fill Week With Contests Against Indie Teams FAYETTE, Feb. 22.--With Only one conference game remaining on the schedule, tipper Iowa will fill In this week with a, pair of conference opponents.

Loughran, gaining increasing favor as a challenger, is boxing brilliantly in his training workouts at Palm Beach, while Camera is developing hia punching against undersized, mediocre training partners here. The odds still favor Camera at 3 to 1, but dissension in the champion's camp, as shown by the total absence of his chief manager, Louis Soresi, and the huge Italian's Indifference, worry his supporters. No estimate of the ticket sale, which has been light, has been made as yet by Madison Square Garden, promoting the show.

EVANS, Feb. 22. (.W--Lulu Gear's world is a small one. Few have ever heard of her. She has lived 50 of her 70 years in. a decadent mining- village. She is a storekeeper, a school teacher, a judge of petty disputes. Some say she has wasted her talent in this inland Iowa hamlet of less than a hundred persons. "Some people think I've buried myself," she said. "But I've seen more living here than I could anywhere else.'* Lulu Gear came to Evans to teach schooi 50 years ago. She was 20 then. Six hundred coal miners and their families lived in two rows of red-painted "shacks. Fifteen clerks were employed in a company store. Helped Settle Disputes. Lulu Gear taught the children. She read to the miners who were uneducated. She wrote letters for those unable to write themselves. She helped settle family disputes, cared for the aick, presided at the ceremonies of birth and death. Sixteen years ago the mines were shut own. The rows of red painted shacks were moved away. A few remained in homes they had built for themselves, among them Lulu Gear. She started her village store. She took over the postoffice. She "carried on the books" those unable to pay. She taught the few children who remained. Owns Only Kcfrlgcrntor. There are less than 100 residents in Evans now. And Lulu Gear stil is their benefactor. She owns the only refrigerator in town, and in summer it is filled with meat for Evans dinners. The electricity that lights the small church runj through her meter. She still reads letters for those few that are unable to read. Men and boys play baseball and loaf Li front of her store in summer. In winter they gather around the big stove inside. She still settles the town's disputes. She still conducts a school for a handful of children. Lulu Gear's world ia a small one She has lived 50 of her 70 years in a decadent mining village.

Strength at Liverpool combined with lack of selling pressure turned wheat prices upward today. Final figures showed futures quotations at levels %% cent over the previous close. Trading was quiet and the usual closing flurry did not materialize. May wheat finished at 67% with July at 68V4 cents. Values held close to the high points with only a minimum of interest displayed. Offerings were extremely light, and occasionally buv: ng orders were sufficient to hold the morket firm. Export interests were credited with fair purchases in early trading, but no figure was placed on foreign sales. With the Chicago market on holiday, outside news was very restricted. Liverpool wheat was strong, and closed %@y± higher.

(A 5 ) -- Marine men remarked today upon the passage through the Panama Canal at present of unusually large shipments ol nitrate -- an essential of war. They noted that ships loaded with nitrate, used in the manufacture of high explosives, are going to the Azores, for trans-shipment of the' cargoes to England, France and Russia; and westward to Japan. 93,804 Tons of Nitrate. Nitrate totaling 93,604 tons has passed through the canal this month alone. The twelfth shipment since Feb. 1 was given transit Monday. Officials said half the shipments were consigned to the Azores, to be routed from there to England and Russia. Shipments of scrap iron, steel, lead nnd cotton enroute from the United States to Japan also pass almost daily. These commodities also are used in the manufacture of war articles. Frequent for Year. Such cargoes have been frequent since last year. Scrap material is being shipped from New York, Savannah, Texas, Alabama, Philadelphia, Boston and Norfolk. Persons close to the Chilean nitrate industry recently denied in New York that there were any unusual shipments of nitrates from Chile abroad. Shipments to Japan have been purely seasonal, they maintained, while Russia hag been developing her own synthetic nitrates and therefore has not been buying from Chile.
