DAIRY EXPERT IS OPTIMISTIC OVER FARMING FUTURE Lascelles Gives Address a County Holstein Gathering. An optimistic picture of the agricultural situation, particularly the dairy industry, was painted by H R. Lascelles, west central states representative of the Holstein Fre- sian association of the United States, in addressing the annua meeting of the Cerro Gordo County Holstein Breeders association at a luncheon held Thursday noon at the Cerro Gordo hotel. Mr. "Lascelles' produced statistics showing: a decrease in inventory of farm products, which coupled with an Increasing demand are certain to make for better prices in the _near future. "J.-don't expect an immediate return of'50'cent butter, but I think we are just as well off without that," he declared. Income Increasing To show tie better position oi the dairy 'industry as compared with other farm operations, Mr. Lascelles pointed to the' fact that farm income outside of milk in the United States increased 1.54 per cent from 1924 to 1929, while th» income from milk increased 22 per cent in that time. Increased consumption accounts for 19 per cent of this increased income. Inventories of meats' and statistics on the number of livestock and quantity of'grain indicate the depression has practically spent itself, according to Mr.. Lascelles. Total · meats in storage Jan. 1, 1931, was 16 per cent under that of the year before, he said, while there has only been 1.7 per .cent increase in the number of cattle, 2.8 per cent increase in sheep and lambs. Pork in Storage Doivn. The decrease in pork in storage has been accompanied by a million decrease in live hogs. There are also fewer cattle, hogs and lambs to feed. The storage of butter decreased 17,500,000 pounds, approximately 20 per cent, Mr. Lascelles said. Cheese also is down and stocks of feeds, such as corn) are far below that of last year, according to the speaker. [ Mr. Lascelles also spoke of the} prizes that are being'offered by the ' association. The organization will award a watch fob to the champion Holstein club showman in each county with 10 or more Holstein: club .members, with either grade or ·;purebred .-calves, at^ the county --·ahowr· The · award : to be' made on ' fh.e.^.basis of : the condition, fitting MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE publican primary Tuesday and prepared for the big contest two months hence.

Still, the post of understudy to the chief executive carries plenty of dls tinction with it. Curtis, after all, is a naive old man, and quite obviously he likes it.

WORLD TUNES IN UPON WINDY CITY (rontlnued From 1'ngf 1). mous factories, the stockyards, great building projects, the glory ol one world's fair and the hopes of another. But the political life in the mid' west metropolis .has always attracted attention, especially since the,entry of the master showman William Hale Thompson. "Bill the Builder." "Big Bill the builder",has staged many of them, vote-getters and side- splitters. He campaigned in 1915 on the .resurrected slogan of "a full dinner pail," argued among other things for home rule for Ireland in 1919 and astounded the world in 11927 by promising to "crack King George in the snoot" if he ever came to Chicago. This time Thompson has found someone closer home to campaign against. He vows with gusto daily that he "wears no man's halter" and attempts'to show that his opponents do--that their halters lead to newspaper offices. · . For once Thompson', has an opponent willing to engage him at hfs own game. Lyle, who became a national figure while in the usually in conspicuous office of municipa judge,: relishes a fight and has no objection to histrionics or to strong language. Carries Gang Guns. Thompson started using a jackasf parade, depicting Lyle on a mule and Albert on a burro. Lyle, vociferous foe of gangdom, responded by bringing machine guns,sawedo/f sho! guns, blackjacks and pistols to his meetings and charging that the men who used such weapons were all for Thompson., Starting from "the nuttj judge" and "that big clown," the two worked, up to a name calling" contest that got too strong for print. Albert, 'backed by the faction headed by Senator Charles S. Deneen has pointed to the antics of his opponents and asked the voters, "}s that the .kind of a mayor you want?" i A SENATORSHIP is not such bad berth, anyway. Curtis appears to. feel not the slightest doubt that he can have Kansas' next vacancy if he requests it--and neither does anyone else. In fact, it virtually has been saved for him. When he resigned,~to accept the vice presidency, it was supposed to have been the understanding that anyone but Henry J. Allen, with whom he was on extremely bad po- jitical terms, would be appointed to succeed him. Otherwise he need not : resigned quite so soon--not intil after Governor Clyde M. Reed, a friend of Allen, was out of office.' But directly he had done so Governor Reed did appoint Allen. Subsequently a- most . unusual thing (for Kansas) occurred. The Sunflower state went- democratic. . It did not go democratic enough to beat the republican Sen- itor Capper, who was triumphant- y re-elected, but; it went democratic enough to defeat Allen and to wipe Reed off the political map. Many folk surmise that Curtis attended to-it. * * * ANYHOW, K a n s a s , normally *»· strongly republican, now has one democratic senator in George VtcGill of Wichita, whose two-year :erm expires in 1933, leaving an opening, unless George can win again. If he can, it Will be a won- ter--provided the republicans do not give Allen another run, which would be still more wonderful. Should Curtis speak for that place, it is safe to say he can have it. In case he does so it will be equivalent to a prophecy, but prophets make mistakes occasionally. SHIPLEY STORES IN RECEIVERSHIP W. A. Westfall Is Appointed Receiver for Five Establishments. , On the petition of W. V. Shipley, Judge Joseph J. Clark Wednesday evening appointed W. A. Westfali Mason City attorney, receiver for the five stores owned and operatec by the W. V. Shipley company. The stores involved are the Sterling Dry Goods company of Mason City, the Shipley-Black company of Webster City, the Shipley-Pedersen company of Ames, the Shipley company of Iowa Falls and Shipley, Inc. ot Oshaloosa. In the petition for the appointment of a receiver, filed by Attorney R. P. Clough, the allegation ir made that the W. V. Shipley company owns substantially all of the capital stock of each, of the othci five companies. All of the five stores are engaged in the women's ready-to-wear and dry goods business. Falling prices and business depression were given as the cause of the receivership. Each of the defendant companies has taken considerable losses in the past few years and does not have sufficient funds to carry on the business, it .was stated. The aggregate obligations of the five store are about 580,000 it was stated. The plaintiff expressed the belief that if the corporations bo permitted to operate and not be subjected to suits, attachments and levies, which have been threatened, that the obligations will be paid in full. P Senator Borah seems to have lost his sense of perspective.
