$·* tii TWENTY-TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 15 · 1934 MICHIGAN TOPS SWIM RANKINGS Coaches Favor Wolverines, Pick Northwestern for Runnerup in Meet IOWA CITY, March 15.-- It will fc« Michigan again for the fourth ·traight year, with Northwestern, which has won the greatest number of championships, as the runnerup. At least that is the consensus of Western conference swimming coaches regarding the championship meet in the University of Iowa field house pool Saturday. The coaches, asked to predict the teams' order of finish, with one exception picked Michigan as the tltlist by a comfortable margin over Northwestern, the national collegiate winner of 1933. . Iowa Banked Third. Iowa, the host team, won third place in the consensus ranking, just a shade ahead of Illinois. Minnesota placed fifth, Ohio State sixth, Purdue and Chicago tied for seventh, and Indiana ninth and last. Wisconsin will have no team in the meet If the Wolverines run true to predictions and finish first, it will be the seventh championship for them in 12 years. No Michigan team competed in the swimming meet until 1923 but in 1927, 1928, and 1929 and 1931, 1932 and 1933 the championship was taken to Ann Arbor. Wildcats lead In Ttltles. Northwestern, which has competed in every meet since- the first one in 1911, leads with 9 victories and a share, having scored 56 first places and 665 points. Illinois has- 3 triumphs, Chicago 2 and a share, and Minnesota 2. The other five universities--Iowa, Ohio State, Indiana, Wisconsin and Purdue-- never have won a title. To win first place, it has been necessary to score an average of 39 points. The lowest victory total. was Northwestern's 29 in 1914 and the highest was Michigan's 57 in 1931.

MOSCOW, March 15. UP)--Grave concern was expressed today for the flyer Liapidevsky, missing:- on a flight of mercy in an attempt to rescue 89 persons stranded oil cracking ice floea in the Bering sea. On a previous flight into the icy wastes 10 days ago, he saved 12 women and children, survivors of the Russian steamer Cheliuskin which was crushed by the ice. The government rescue commission dispatched dog teams to seel the flyer. It was believed he might have been forced down somewhere between Cape Van Karen and Cape Wellen. He left the latter point early yesterday and had planned to establish a new base for rescue operations. The men stranded on the ice are members of the Wrangel Island scientific expedition, Prof. Otto Schmidt. headed by LEGAL NOTICE HOGS GAIN I^TMQDERATELY^ ACTIVE TRADE WHEAT DROPS AS SILVER TUMBLES Weakness of Winnipeg Mart Contributes to Decline at Chicago. CHICAGO, March 15. Off)-Tumbling of silver prices today went hand in hand with decidedly lower quotations here on wheat. Weakness of the Winnipeg wheat market contributed to the downward trend in Chicago. Belief was reported as prevailing at Winnipeg that lowering of prices there night result in a better European demand for wheat from Canada. Some export business in corn from the United States was. done today. Wheat closed unstable, !%-!% under yesterday's finish, May 86%87, July 87-87%, corn %-% down, May 50%-%, July 52W-%, oats %% off, and provisions showing 2 cents to 7 cents decline.

CHICAGO, March 15. IrB--The hog market advanced 5 to 10 cents today in moderately active trading, ["he top moved up to ?4.65 with the bulk going from $4'25 to ?4.50. Supplies were as estimated, only slightly smaller than last Thursday and 7,000 head fewer than a year ago. However, supplies have been gradually increasing ic size at the principal markets all week, although no damage to the price fabric has resulted because of an increasing demand for dressed pork. Supplies at the principal western markets were heavier than either a week or a year ago with the mar- tet tone generally steady to 10 to 15 cents higher. With two more weeks of the ten- ten season ahead of the cattle trade, producers and feeders began to step up marketings. Demand was not heavy enough to absorb the offerings without weakness and the market ruled steady tin best offerings, but 25 cents lower on all others. The decline carried prices fully 50 cents below Tuesday's high time. Best yearlings were absent. Medium weight steers topped at $7.15. Sheep and-lambs were weak and slow. The market was 25 to 50 cents lower with best lambs held around $9.50 and most bids at $9 or a little better. Outside markets showed a substantial increase in supplies and this tended to price weakness.

'JOHN F.CLARK AND CO. MARKET INFORMATION 325 1. O. F. Bldg. Phone S45 MRS. A, J. GARRETT recently in talking with the Gly- Cas Man at Michael's Drug Store, 5 So. Federal Ave.: ·"For six years before I tried Gly- Cas I had hardly had a. well day," continued Mrs. Garrett. "It was constant suffering for me, walked all night, night after night, as sleep was impossible. Would perspire until the sweat would run off me. At times I felt as if I could not endure it I was on a strict diet -and even then was distressed almost beyond endurance with gas, bloating and misery over my body. But Gly-Cas was wonderful for me and today I can eat anything I want, sleep well and feel like my former self once more, even my blood pressure has been reduced. I know that no one except myself can ever know what I suffered. And it was so discouraging trying medicine after medicine without results and it was certainly a happv day when I begar. to get just the relief I had been wanting from this Gly-Cas. I feel like telling everyone to try this new remedy for I know from experience -- it does the work and does It well." Gly-Cas Is sold by Michael Drug Co., 5 South Federal Ave., Mason City, Iowa, ' General Motors corporation will cut hours from 40 to 36 a week and raise wages correspondingly In accordance with the recommendations recently announced by the National Auto chamber, ol Commerce, W. S, Knudsen, executive vice president of General Motors, announced at hearing on auto plant labor controversies before the national labor board. This, action will be taken despite the belief that under prevailing conditions wages cannot be raised without increasing prices and probably curtailing production and reducing employment, the auto executive added. - Lynch says: Lack of stimulating news In wheat and the announcement that Secretary Morgenthau was opposed to silver legislation at this time along with the decline stock market was responsible for a 1 cent break. Liquidation ot long May -wheat was again In evidence. Generally favorable weather condition prevails over the winter wheat belt. Recent snow and rain providing adequate surface moisture for the time being. Soil conditions as regards to moisture are not so good in the spring wheat and will need generous spring rail to remedy It. There has been considerable spreading between May and the off options here today. Late break was caused by weakness In stocks which brought heavy liquidation. Still think wheat will no better but would wait until liquidation runs its course before buying. BCTTEK AND EGG CLOSING LETTER Batter--The spot market was steady with quotations all grades unchanged. Withdrawals of storage butter In the four markets were much less than they have been, the total net withdrawals being only 32,000 Ibs. There were lighter offerings of March butter and this delivery advanced ^i cent closing at 22% cents. November butter was also firmer 'at unchanged price. Any favorable developments In the spot situation would likely result in advancing futures from present levels. ,, E gR8 --car lots of top grades were }i cent higher on tic spot market while other grades were unchanged. Trading in October eggs was more active and thb delivery was fine throughout the session closing at the top price for the delivery 20% cents. Higher prices seem likely on futures.

Ull- Seeds un Thc volume oi business In the ninth federal reserve district during February continued at about the level of January and was. much above the level a year ago, al though not as high as in the pre-depression ears. As in earlier month., rural conditions showed a greater improvement than urban conditions. The country check clearings index rose from 88 in January to 99 in February, and in the latter month. It was the highest since June 1930. On the other hand, the .bank debits index, which chiefly reflects the volume of business transactions in the larger cities, declined from 58 in January t-) 57 in February, after allowance for seasonal changes. The seasonally corrected Index of miscellaneous freight carloadings decreased from 71 In January to 67 In February, and the corrected inde^ of less-than-carload freight movement decreased from 64 in January to 62 in February. TRADE SHOWS The volume of retail trade in the district was larger in February than In the corresponding month last year. City department stores reported an 18 per cent Increase and rural department stores and general stores reported a 38 per cent Increase as compared with February last year. Country umber yards did two and one-half times as much business In lumber in February as in the same month last year, partly as a result of the mild weather and lack of snow which permitted building and _ repair work to be carried on outdoors. Other Increases over ths corresponding month lasl year were revealed by the latest reports of electric power consumption, .building permits and contracts, flour shipments, linseed pro- duets shipments, copper output, freight car- loadings of grain and grain products, coke, forest products and Iron ore, and market- ings of cattle and calves. Decreases occurred in the freight movement pf coal, marketings of hogs and sheep and butter production. The cash income of northwestern farmers from seven major items was 11 per cent larger In February than in the same month last year. Much greater Income from cash crops more than offset a moderate decrease in income from dairy products and a large decrease In Income from hogs. These farm Income estimates do not Include Payments to farmers by the agricultural adjustment administration, or loans to farmers through the federal farm loan system, or through the corn loan activities of the reconstruction finance corporation, all of which were major sources of farm revenue during February. FARM PRODUCTS The 'farm product price developments during February were notable for the increases which occurred in the prices of many farm products which did not advance as rapMls as the grains last spring. Using wedlan prices. hJgs advanced SI per hundredweight from January to February, iambs advanced SI 25 and veal calves advanced $1.50. The price of butter, computed as a basis for March payments to farmers for butterfat delivered during February, was 5 -a cents higher than the price in the Pry month and was also at the highest level more than two years. The price of eggs declined only 1 cent a dozen between January and February, which was mud, less than the usual seasonal decrease. The price of potatoes Increased sharply in February. Among the grains, no significant price changes occurred, except a small advance in the price of barley, which nevertheless brought that grain to the highest price in Itoee years, comparing February prices with prices a year ago, potatoes, ewes and barley were about three times as high, durum wheat, com and oats were more than twice as high, and all other Importantprices were higher than test year's prices, with the exception of hens.

LATE TONE HEAVY IN STOCK MARKET Moderate Forenoon Losses Extended in Last Hour Selling Flurry. NEW YORK, March 15. UP)--Heaviness in metals depressed the general stock list today. Moderate forenoon recessions were extended in a brief but active selling flurry at the start of the last hour. The late tone was heavy. U. S. Smelting lost more than 8 points and Cerro de Pasco and American Smelting were off 3 each. Declines of 1 to around 2 points were shown by Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, U. S. Steel, American Telephone, Chrysler, Montgomery Ward and American Tobacco B. Transfers approximated 1,300,000 shares. Weakness of the non-ferrous metal issues was an unsettling element following word that the administration was not disposed to do anything more for silver at Imis time. Other Washington developments continued to hold the attention of the speculative fraternity. Most commodities were hesitant and silver- futures dropped nearly 2 cents an ounce. Grains and cotton eased, but rubber again registered improvement. Bonds were not quite so enthusiastic as in previous sessions. Stock List SEW YOBK STOCKS. NEW YORK. March 15. lift-Final Quotations.

Some corporate Issues which were in lively demand yesterday attracted sufficient further buying to climb another half a point or so.- There were no very wide advances during the forenoon and in a few instances prices sagged a bit. U. S. government and high grade corporate ratings were firm In quiet trading. In loans like United Drug, Great Northern and North American company, which moved ahead rather easily yesterday, the trend continued upward but at a more conservative pace. Other issues recording minor gains Included Santa Fe 4s. Armour and company 4V-E, Duquesne Light 4%s. Postal Te'egraph 5s. Western Union 5s and Youngstown Sheet and Tube 5s. A few transfers sufficed to put American and Foreign Power 5s down a point. Allc- gbauy corporation Issues were traded a little below yesterday's finals, and losses ranging up to three quarters of a point marked Chesapeake and Ohio 4%s, Milwaukee 5s, Missouri Pacific 5s, Union Pacific 4s and Standard Oil of New York 4%s.

CHICAGO, March 15.-Wheat--The decline In stocks and silver and persistent heaviness at Winnipeg easily ffset any constructive ideas held with re- ard to the outcome of the spring and Winer wheat crops and prices were on the owngrade most of the session. Support was oor and part of it was regarded as having eveloped from the fact that prices around nidsession were more than a cent under esterday's close and that a rally might oc- ur There was an undercurrent of uneasl- ies s apparent in trade gossip during the ay, the sharp drop in silver being the hlef unsettling factor as som saw it, Scli- ns was general near Uie close, coincident vltb a further decline In stocks and the close was heavy. Winnipeg advices indicated hat there had been some selling ot futures of the same class that developed at iOC for he May and it was fairly persistent. It was ntlmated that sellers were inclined to the belief that a lowering in the price might result in a better foreign demand for Manl- tobas. Considerable interest is being shown n the proposed control legislation in Canada, desipned to carry out the dominion s part In the International wheat agreement signed last fall in London. Com--The expected export business In American corn developed today but it was ·without lasting effect and corn closed lower with the general trend of grains. Intimations were that the United Kingdom had aken 16,000 to 25,000 bushels ot what com Ma the gulf. The sharp advance in Buenos Aires March corn, which lifted It to a fractiona premium over Chicago May for the first time in some years and the scarcity ol old corn in Argentina were regarded as chlel factors in the advance. Com bookings today "5 000 bushels. The decline in silver ana stocks is discouraging to holders and we look for nervous markets until news turns constructive or an oversold position develops. Butler--All grades were unchanged and the market steadier. Offerings were light In the futures and this no doubt had some Influence In bringing about a better market undertone. There were r.o deliveries todai. EIKS--Carlots of extra firsts and firsts fractionally higher today while the remainder of the list was unchanged. ^«"TM steady and there seems to be a fairly active demand for all grades. Commcni--No particular change Is Indicated for the present although it seems Ilko- ly that either or both butter and eggs nil be accorded reasonably good suppor on al: recessions at this time.
