MARCH 15 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE SEVENTEEN CLAIMS PRICES SET BY CITIZENS Canadian Grain Board Head Declares Housewife Is Ultimate Power. CHICAGO, March 10. (/I 1 )--Sanford Evans of Winnipeg, president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, asserted here today that housewives and other citizens arc the ultimate power in price movements of grain. Evans was a speaker before the association of grain commission merchants of the Chicago board of trade. "There are many misconceptions of the power of market methods and operations to affect price," Kvans said. "The housewives who buy a package of flour at the. grocery store and a. loaf of bread at the bakery, and the men who order bra;i j and shorts for their cattle or a sack of wheat .for their chickens, are the ultimate power in price movements. "If wheat does not continue tu flow into ultimate consumption at a late proportionate to the quantities available, then an adjustment of price will be forced, *nd if central markets do not immediately adapt themselves they must later make a more abrupt and substantial correction." HEADS UNIVERSITY INDIANHEAD FIRE REACHES TREES Firemen Called When Grass Fire Gets Out of Control. Fire swept the row of trees near the highway on Indian Head farm No. 2 east of the Hanford Mac- Nidcr home Wednesday evening, when a grass fire, which was started to burn off stubble, got beyond control and fired the trees. Engine No. 2 of the Mason City fire department was sent to the farm and extinguished the fire.

Previous to the vote last night the aldermen were informed that the action might result in sentences for contempt of court because no provision was made to return more than $600,000 to judges and em- ployes of the municipal court. Superior Judge Denis E. Sullivan had issued an order for payment to court officials and employes of amounts deducted from their 1932 and 1933 salaries. The court also ordered payment of salaries in full for the current year. The aldermen, however, approved the budget providing a 52 day cut for the court judges and workers. The aldermen themselves took a 78 days pay reduction. Daughter Is Born. WESLEY--Mr. and Mrs. Roy Taylor are the parents of. a girl born to them Wednesday morning.
