HERRING MAKES REQUEST FOR AID Asks War Department for Help in Work of Flood Prevention. DES MOUSES, W-Gov. Clyde JL Herring said Thursday the state ad- utant general's office is preparing a formal request to the war department for army and CCC aid in flood jrevention throughout Iowa. The governor explained the request will first be made to Maj. Gen. F. C. Bolles, seventh army corps commander. He said Bolles indicated in a conference earlier this week that he would approve the ap- lication. The recent thaw, followed by reeztog, lessened the flood danger ,o some extent, but the thickness of ce on Iowa's streams and the possibility of ice jams constitutes a serious threat, the governor said. He stated that if the war department agrees to lend army flood prevention engineers to Iowa and permits CCC mobilization at danger joints, the army engineers and ;hree Iowa hydraulics experts .will work out a plan for the state. The three Iowa men mentioned by :he governor are R. K. Kassel and T. T. Mavis, University of Iowa hydraulics engineers, and Ray Braun of the state highway commission. The governor said much c-f the danger of ice jams may be averted y stationing CCC workers at river jottle necks to keep the ice moving. He has asked that the army engineers survey the possible jam points. Petroleum Industry Committee Studies Code of Marketing CHICAGO, UP)--A committee of the petroleum industry in 12 mid- western states met here Thursday to consider approval of a voluntary code of marketing practices for sub. mission to the federal trade commission. Representing all branches of the far-flung oil business from refiners to retailers, the committee received reports on the industry's reaction to the code under consideration which were "very favorable," -P. J. Schroeder of Minneapolis, chairman, said. The code was prepared three weeks ago after a long series of conferences, and then was sent to state association in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio,. Michigan, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Involving rules prohibiting re bates, "under the canopy," (at the filling station) price cutting, the giving of premiums, the furnishing of equipment or services to retail ers, and numerous other practices deemed unfair and economically un healthy, Schroeder · said the mid' western code would become a pattern for the petroleum business nationally. .

LONDON, ca--Italy, understood to be balking at the continuation of league of nations sanctions against her, advised the British government Thursday that she was not ready to sign any new naval treaty with Great Britain, France, and the United States.

' AAA PAYMENTS TO BE RESUMED Machinery Put Into Gear; Check Writing to Begin in About 2 Weeks. WASHINGTON, GP)--Machinery went into gear Thursday to pay the nation's corn-hog farmers about «100,000,000 for their compliance .vith 1934 and 1935 AAA programs. Farm administration officials said actual writing of checks to inish payments probably would be- jin in about two weeks and soon hereafter would proceed rapidly. An opinion by Comptroller General J. R. McCari covering some legal, questions is being awaited. Secretary Wallace signed an order authorizing the payments- under, an appropriation bill recently passed y congress which included at ?296,100,000 item for farm administra- ion benefit payments. Instructions Sent Out. The AAA corn-hog section immediately dispatched telegrams to major corn-hog states instructing Jiem to proceed just as they had jeen when the payment work and compliance check: was stopped Jan. 6 by the supreme court decision invalidating AAA. One major change in regulations has been made to permit farmers who were unable to raise 25 per cent of their hog quota to receive partial payments. Under the 1935 contract, farmers had to produce 25 per cent as many pigs as their average 1932-33 production but because of heavy liquidation of stock n the 1934 drought, many were unable to meet this requirement. Such farmers, corn-hog officials said, will be permitted to receive heir com payments even though :hey are barred from hog payments oy non-compliance. Proof of Compliance. Proof of compliance with the 1935 program has been furnished AAA jfficiala here on about 50,000 contracts. These probably will be the first to be paid. Practically all of the 1931 contracts have been paid, the ones remaining being cases where legal or technical difficulties were encountered. Most of the first payments on the 1935 contracts also have been made, $79,000,000 having been disbursed to about 965,000 contract signers before Jan. 6. Corn-hog officials estimated that about 3,000,000 more would be paid out in first payments to other contract signers and nearly $100,000000 would go for administrative expenses and second benefit pay. ments.
