^ MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 14 1934 Debtor-Creditor Meeting Seeks Debt Conciliation Stale and Federal Officials Meet With Committees HOG MART SHOWS SEMBLANCE OF STRENGTH From 14 Counties. Representatives of creditor and ' debtor interests from 14 North Iowa counties met at the Mason City T. M. C. A. Wednesday morning for an all day discussion of the problems inherent in their relationship. -' The meeting was sponsored by the Iowa farm debt advisory council and called by Prof. W. G. Murray of Ames, state chairman of that body. Others on the speaking program included Alvin T. Anderson of Washington, a representative of the federal farm cfedit administration; Merritt Greene of Des Moines, assistant chairman of the Iowa debt council; Mr. Baird of the federal - land bank in Omaha, and Ray Murray' of Buffalo Center, state secretary of agriculture. Each County Has Committee. The gathering consisted of county agents from each of the counties and of local committees, consisting of five members'from each county. Organization of each county, with a chairman, vice chairman and secretary, and plans for subsequent meetings of these units to meet local situations weffe the principal business of the conference here. Both Mr. Greene and Mr. Mur- ray in their opening addresses made " it clear that the project is in no sense confined to a scaling down ol farm debts: "It is rather," said Mr. Greene, "an endeavor to.get creditors and debtors together on a settlement, adjustment or arrangement of some kind, mutually agreeable. It isnt suggested that there be a scatag .down of amply secured indebted- Two Major Methods. - Mr. Anderson suggested there are two approaches, or practical methods for distressed cases involving farm debt relationship, as "1 Refinancing through the FLB, which in'effect transfers the farmer's indebtedness from his present list cf creditors to new creditors, ' namely, the farmer-stockholders "and bondholders of the FLB. "2. Reorganizing the debt through a definite agreement, usually involv- ' ing an extension of time, with the farmers present creditors." £ach Case Unto Itself. "The particular method that may be used," he added, "depends upon the merits of each particular case. that If the present creditors desire to £ ; et out,' that is, if they want the cash, they will prefer the first method If they think the farmer is good and the security is good, they often prefer to effect some kind of extension' agreement. "The function of the county com- mittees is not to say how distress\ ed cases should be settled but rath- T.- Bradiield. \r to bring about settlement by ·' -' -'· - -- -air]--crafitors~rcF- ----"Ti HOLD PRIMARIES IN 4 IOWA CITIES Lewis and Crouch Selected as Nominees by Voters at Des Moines.

RECEIPTS LESS THAN ESTIMATED Vices Called Steady to 10 Cents Higher With Top Still at $4.55. CHICAGO, March 14. UP)--The hog market showed a semblance of trength today when loadings were jut sharply by producers. Receipts were only 15,000 when 20,000 had been estimated yesterday. Prices were called steady to 10 cents higher, although the top stoodsat.?4.55, unchanged from yes- :erday's extreme peak. However, several loads were sold at the peak ;oday. The bulk of hogs on sale went at ?4 upward. Outside markets also cut receipts to near last Wednesday's levels and somewhat under the 'supplies of a year ago. Trade was slow with prices ranging from steady to 10 and 15 cents higher. Cattle trade was mostly steady. Immediate requirements were not iroad enough to bring a decided upturn to values. Best yearlings topped at $7.60 with heavy steers as high as $7.35; it was mostly a $5.50 to ?7 market. Sheep were slow getting under way. Holders were asking strong to tiigher prices and holding best fat lambs at $9.75 and above. Most bids were steady at $9.50 to $9.60. Indications pointed to steady trade later as supplies were fairly liberal. HIDES, WOOL Quotations furnished by Wolf Bros.

The latter market was under the Influence of continued discouraging export demand and belief that one source was continuing to sell wheat on anything In the way of a bulge. Consequently our market failed to hold an advance of the morning which put July at a new high since Feb. 16, the close leaving prices about where they were yesterday, with the undertone firm. Private reports from both the southwest and northwest indicated a decided lack of -subsoil moisture over wide areas and more or less apprehension was noted in trade gossip as to ths outcome of the crops. There was nothing more out of Washington as the trade saw It. to Influence operations on either side, hut the belief was fairly general that were It not for the uncertainties in that direction, that a much arger interest would be seen in wheat on account of the prospective crop scare. CORN--Interest was limited. The undertone most of the session was steady, although prices eased off at the close. The government report on intentions to plant win be issued tomorrow afternoon and it s awaited with unusual Interest as It may indicate how the proposed com produc- lon control plan is working out. Argentine corn, presumably for March arrival, was quoted in Liverpool today at 60c a bushel, up over 4 cents from yesterday, but the March delivery in Rotterdam was slightiy easier. Bookings today. 45.000 with seller offerings slightly above the market. Cash sales, 32.000. The winter wheat prospects and Washington uncertainties present sufficient Influences to keep the market in a nervous state for the time being. Butter -- Declines were again general today on all grades of fresh butter, while storage remained unchanged. Eggs--The cash market at the time the spot board closed was firm, with quotations up Vt to 1 cent. Comment--It would seem' that at least a temporary low has been reached for butter and a temporary high for eggs. Would prefer to buy either on any good setback- Government League ,at Dubuque Selects 5 Council Candidates DUBUQUE, March 14.

Some of the recent favorites pushed UP moderately to new highs for the year.

Goodyear 5's, United Drug 5's, Youngstown sheet and Tube 5's, Postal Telegraph 5's and western Union 5's.

S. government market was a comparatively sma'l affair during the early trading, although a fair turnover at slightly higher prices occurred in treasury 3's and 3%'s.- The general price range of governments was 3-32's of a point down to 4-32's higher. · ' trading was of limited volume and fluctuations narrow In most foreign Issues.
