Retail association executives' in New York City said a definite increase over last year was shown. While exact figures for a comparison were not yet available, William J.

AMES, Dee. 21.--Barberry eradication in Iowa will be continued this winter as long as weather permits, according to D. A. Shepherd, field agent for the United States department of agriculture at lown. State college. He reported yesterday that 13,623 of tUe mat-spreading' .bushes had been destroyed lu seven Iowa counties during November. Work was done in AHamakee, Clayton, Clinton, Dallas, Dubuque, Jackson and Winneahiek counties with public works fund. With the exception of crew foremen, unskilled laborers chosen from local re-employment lists were used in the work.
