This augmented personnel plans , j ugt returne( j f rom a visit to Mrs. orse's bedside in the St. Francis ospital at New Hampton and he ported Mrs. Morse was resting ore comfortably than she had for e last few days following the ac- dent. to expedite cases for prosecution. It is in line with Johnson's announcement that President Roosevelt wants a more stern enforcement of blue eagle rules. The NRA faces an extended siege of negotiation before its goal pf slashed working- hours can be at- ·tained Two committees of industrial leaders which were picked to help Johnson work out plans to put more men to work postponed all definite action until next week. Administrator Almost Exhausted. The administrator, almost exhausted from 10 days and nights of nearly continuous effort, during the trig code cohgreaa/planned a breath- ^Sif-^ltTrcfore pitching again into the task of convincing the code men that they have to act, and promptly. · Widely divergent courses were taken by the two assisting committees. , The one representing consumer s goods contained men in agreement witti Johnson's plan. They went to consult with their colleagues. There was' an expectation that they would propose fairly soon a definite alternative to the Johnson 10 per cent hour shortening plan. George Sloan, cotton textile lead- · er, was helping them with plans to get quick expressions from their industries, and to perfect organization. On Less Direct Course. The capital goods committee- representing makers of machinery construction, goods, supplies for manufacture--was authoritatively shown to be embarked upon a far less direct course. "Establishing headquarters in the ·offices of the machinery and allie products institute, a super-codi group for more than 40 industries the members mostly left town. Most of them expected to com back next week, then to undertak a' deliberate program for helpin, ttieir own industries. Their spokes men thus far have shown more in terest in having the administration' securities act amended and i stopping a drastic exchange regula tion bill than in work hour shorten ing. Both grouns, however, heard from Johnson yesterday privately an there was every indication, that h "talked turkey" to them.

(flV-Mr Cullen B. Roe, wife of an Afton physician, was critically injured today when the auto in which she and her husband were riding collided with a state highway commission snow plow near Lorimor. Mrs. Roe was brought to a hospital here suffering from a fractured skull. Dr. Roe escaped with minor cuts. The couple was on its ..way to Des Moines. MARKET REVIEW The grain markets were quiet and featureless, price holding within a narrow range. The local element standing aside as aas been the case for some time. Demand [or wheat not conspicuous on the fractional upturns while offerings disappeared on the small dips. The selling side was avoided. The bulk of the trade in -wheat was around gey. cents for the May or abo-it the same figure as the close of the previous day. Open Interest- In. May has been rather steadily decreasing of late while distant deliveries increasing. May wheat in the local market continues at a fractional premium over the July, while at Kansas City. Minneapolis and Winnipeg May gone to a discount. So far there has been no evidence of any material changing over of hedges from May Into July in the various markets owing »o the small difference in price so far, but should Kansas City May get to around 1 to 1« cents under the distant future its expected the changing will be liberal, Winnipeg showed a good undertone with short covering a factor. Corn--Com maintained its firm undertone and closed fractionally better than yesterday, although May was for sale above 51 cents which checked any advancing tendency. Shipping demand was quite large and removal of hedges had some effect also. An active demand for old Argentine corn -was reported in the United Kingdom. Broomhall's Argentine agent estimated exportable surplus this season from the new crop at 190 to 220 million. Cash sales were 130.000 bushels. About 120,000 bushels were hooked to arrive but nearly all of it was thought to have come from other terminals. While the steady undertone in wheat is encouraging we are Inclined to expect only a trading market until there are developments one way or the other. Butter--Though unchanged, today's market is visibly unsettled. Trading Is extremely quiet and at this time there Is every reason to believe that prices -will -work lower morrow. Eels--Official" cash egg quotations are again unchanged and at the time the spot market closed -were holding steady. The tendency of stocks to accumulate though apparent earlier, did not begin to make itself felt until after the close of the spot board. A little later buying interest seemed to lag with result that a generally easier tone developed. Comment: Today's setback for Imtter hould attract support at today's and lower for March. Eggs also likely to -work a little lower on this recession. Hecla Mining Hud B M B lati.
