L¥-- Western league officials returned to their respective homes today satisfied that with the addition of Cedar Rapids and Sioux City to the circuit they had formulated -the "best league in 15 years." The Iowa cities were formally voted into the league at a meeting liere yesterday. They replaced Pueblo and Denver, Colo., who according to Dale Gear, league president, were ousted from the circuit for "business reasons" and in full accord with the league's constitutional rights.

CHICAGO, March 1. CD--Sharp curtailment of hog marketings the country over saved the market from a price slump today and quotations here were generally 5 to 10 cents higher. The top moved up to ?4.70 with the bulk of good hogs selling slowly at 54.25 to S4.60. Supplies here, 15,000 head, were 5.000 less than the estimate and 10,000 fewer than last Thursday's receipts. The processing tax was increased 75 cents to $2.25, effective today, and producers feared a sharp slump in prices as a result. About $1 Higher. Current hog prices are about SI higher than a year ago, but killers are paying almost twice as much because of the ?2.25 processing tax. Outside markets also reported a sharp falling off in supplies with price trend mixed, some points being steady, others as much as 25 cents lower and a few 10 to 15 cents higher. Cattle trade was slow with prices ranging from steady on best steers and yearlings to weak and 25 cents lower for others. Best yearlings topped at $7.25. Cattle receipts during February were the largest since 1929 at 180,000 head. Steady to Strong. Sheep were steady to strong with bids on good fat lambs up to $10 and best lots held above 510.25. Trade was fairly active because of small receipts. Sheep receipts during February were 218,000, or 117,000 fewer than in 1932 and the smallest run since 1892. Hog receipts during last month totaled 554,000 head, 17,000 more than in 1933 and with the exception of February, 1932, 'the smallest run since 1893.

ELECTRIC rOH'EB SHOWS INCREASE Electric power production in the United States, aided by storms and cold weather in p5pulous Midwestern and eastern areas, established the best comparison with a year earlier to be reported since the week ended Aug. 5, 1933, in the Washington birthday holiday week ended Feb. 24. Production figures, released Wednesday by Edison Electric Institute, revealed that weather conditions more than offset holiday effects, output rising to 1.646,465,000 kilowatt hours, a gain of 15.5 per cent over the comparable week of 1933 against a margin of 11.6 per cent .1 week earlier on output totaling 1.(540.951,000 unltJ. Although the comparison with a. year ago was favored by the fact that in the 1933 week the approach of the banking crisis had a restrictive effect on Industry thers was also present the consideration that the Aug. 5 comparison was a comparison between the crest of an Initial post-depression boom and the trough of a four year depression.
