FOURTEEN MAX WILL RUSH OR MIX SLOWLY Won't Box With Camera in June 14 Meeting, Says Livermore Battler. . GLOBIN'S, LAKE TAHOE, Cal., March 27. OT--Max Baer announced today he would either play a. Baiting game or seek an early knockout in his heavyweight title fight with Champion Primo Camera June 14. . Announcing his plan of battle after two days of light preparatory ·workouts, the curly headed Californian made no secret of his stra- Either, said Baer, lie will rush Camera off his feet from the open- toff gong hoping to catch the champion in retreat and off balance, or else he will play a waiting game, feinting for an opening as Camera comes in What he won't do, Baer declared, is to try to clinch or box with the big fast Italian. Baer saw Camera in action when he knocked out Jack Sharkey for the title, and he has a lot of respect for the champion's ability to drape his 265 pounds across the shoulders of his opponent "Camera won't get a chance to lean on me," said Baer. 'He's too Wg and strong to wrestle with. Anyhow I hope to knock him out before he can try it." Baer will spend two weeks here doing road work and light exercise _ " . . i_ x.1-A.

Counting on Dazzy. I am counting on a come-back by Dazzy Vance to help such good pitchers as Larry Benton, Paul Derringer and Si Johnson. Dazzy is working hard and will start the season in better shape than he has been in for years. If he does not win more than 1U games, the number Lucas marked up last year, I will be sorely disappointed. I have at' least a dozen other pitchers from whom to pick the rest o2 the staff. The best look- in" rookie prospect now is Houings- worth, a left-hander. Redskin Cagers Who Starred in Catholic Tourney Meet Algona Here's something that was passed on to me, and Is being passed on once more . . . the source was Vanity Fair, I'm told: A football player in college may accept a two-hour cursing from a professional coach, who is receiving $15,000 or $20,000 a year for calling him a dunce with appropriate variations, and still remain an amateur. He is permitted to take an unholy beating from Monday to Friday from the varsity, if he is a scrub, or from ambitious scrubs it he is a varsity, and hi no way sour the smile bestowed upon him by the Dean. On Saturday he may risk his neck in a thundering game before 100,000 people, who have contributed $300,000 to the university for the privilege of witnessing the carnage, and Prexy will swear to the high Heavens and the press that he is a true amateur and a f hie fellow and scholar to boot. But let him on a Sunday afternoon sneak over to the neighboring township and play halfback for the Uneeda Biscuit Wildcats or some other semi-pro team for two tens and a five-dollar bill and get caught at it, and is he marked louSAY . . . His locker is swept out, his private articles of wearing apparel handled with tongs, his comrades are cautioned to breathe through their handkerchiefs when he is around, and the boss teacher himself posts the bull of excommunication on the university gate and pronounces sentence that, as punishment, he is not to be permitted to risk his neck any more on Saturdays for nothing. He is a dirty professional. He has committed the cardinal sin of sticking a couple of bucks into his kick.

UP)--The hog market was steady to 10 'cents lower today. Best grade of light and medium weights were steady, but heavy butchers were fully 10 cents lower. The top was $4.60, unchanged, and the bulk sold from ?4.10 to $4.50. Receipts were heavier than estimated with producers centering marketings in Chicago. Outside markets reported a sharp shrinkage of supplies compared with either a week or a year ago and this fact enabled Chicago prices to hold steady. The run here was heavier than last Tuesday and equal to a year ago. Outside markets were stronger with prices averaging 10 to 15 cents higher. Wintry weather over the greater portion of the middle west and the northern end of the eastern states was a break in favor of the dressed beef wholesalers and cattle prices reflected better demand. Prices were strong to 25 dents higher with best yearlings around $7.50. It was mainly a $5.25 to ?7 market. Sheep and lambs were again plentifully supplied and with early rud- iness at a standstill indications pointed to a steady market. Best fat lambs were held above $9.10, but most bids and early sales were at $9 down.' Yesterday's too plentiful supply had its effect on the market by the large number of holdovers.

(#·)--An opening selling rush took much of the life out of the stock market today but some recovery developed in the late trading. Extreme losses of 1 to 3 or more points were reduced moderately. U. S. Smelting and TJ. S. Industrial alcohol were down more than 4 each at their worst. Late declines of 1 to around 2 were shown by U. S. Steel, American Telephone, Chrysler, American Can, General Motors, Schenley Distillers and New York Central. Transfers approximated 1,600,000 shares. The tumble followed overnight news that the president had requested congress to pass an exchange regulatory bill "with teeth in it." For half an hour the ticker tape ran from 1 to 5 minutes behind floor transactions. The selling rush, which found blocks of 1,000 to 6,000 shares appearing, then died almost as quickly as it began and moderate rallying tendencies appeared. Dullness, however, accompanied the recoveries. Wheat, down more than 2 cents a bushel at one time, pared its losses. Cotton was off more than 50 cents a. bale. Silver and rubber sagged. Corporation bonds were heavy, but U. S. government securities were firm. International dollar rates improved. Stock List NEW TOBK STOCKS. NEW YORK. March 27. UP, Flnitl Quotations.

The most disquieting .possibility In the outlook for the government's prtee-raWnE efforts Is not that they will fall hut that they will succeed too well, states the Guaranty Trust company of New York in discussing what- the New Deal has accomplished, In the current issue of The Guaranty Survey, its review of business and financial conditions in tne United States and abroad, published today. "The time may not be far distant when the most serious problem of the administration will not be to produce an advance in prices but to hold the advance within bounds," The Survey continues. "Disappointment has been expressed in some quarters that the government's recovery program has not brought about a greater degree of business revival. Such an attitude should not be taken too hastily. Perhaps too much in the way of. immediate results was expected in the beginning by a depression-weary nation, over-eager to accept any vague promise of swift recovery. The remarkable Improvement that has taken place during the last year is a matter or record The banking crisis has been surmounted; business activity has increased: prices have risen, and much-needed relief has been given to millions o£ citizens. CHIEF OBJECTIVE OF NEW CHIEF "Fundamentally, tie New Deal is an attempt to reorganize the economic and political system in such a way as to permit the government to take an active part in bringing about co-operative action among all branches of business activity. It is based on tbe principle that a proper coordination of economic Junctions under governmental direction can bring about and maintain equilibrium; In other words, tnat man-made regulations can and should supplant t.1e operation of natural economic laws in an individualistic system. "Unfortunately, it Is W connection with these relief activities that some of the gravest misgivings arise concerning the future, for the cost of relief is tremendous, and In the present Instance it Is being met entirely by public Borrowing. The public debt Is already nearly e«ual to the post-war peak, and the borrowing program contemplated by the administration has hsjdl} be»un. The president estimates that by June 30. 1935. the debt will reach a total of nearly 532.000.000,000. The plan is to ston the borrowing at that point, and it .s earnestly to be hoped that this will prove possible. Even if It does, however, the task of repaying such a sum will be enormous; huge refunding operations will be necessary, and the government will be continuously dependent on conditions in the money market over a long period. Aside from the possibility of financial conditions that will make refunding difficult, there will exist a constant temptation to reduce the burden by Jie temporarily easy method of cheapening he currency. If this temptation is avoided, the debt will have to be paid by means of tases that will Inevitably place a hea\y load on Industry. CHICAGO UVESTOCK CHICAGO, March 27. LT)--U.

Offerings dwindled later and some declines were reduced, but trading turned dull. Turnover in many leading stocks was moderate, though a few were active. Selling appeared to have been prompted by tht president's letter about exchange regulation and although the squall was quickly over new buyers hesitated. Heaviest losei-s was in the Industrial group where Aluminum of America, Gulf Oil and Natomas dropped 2 to around 3 points.

LT!-- Seeds un- MARKET LETTER Wheat--The further impairment of con- idencc, together with prevailing uncertain- les In other directions was plainly evident n wheat today as well as in other markets. The situation appeared to have been brought to a crisis at least for the time being through the publication overnight of President Roosevelt's letter which placed him on record as strongly In favor of the proposed legislation aimed at drastic cur- ailment of speculation In both commodities and stocks. Discouraged longs who have been holding on in the hope th,-.t the trend of events would sooner or later take a turn for the better sold out and Joined the crowd on the sidelines awaiting more favorable marketing conditions. Wheat broke around 2 cents from yesterday's finish, May selling at the lowest since Jan. 9. Many stop loss orders were uncovered on the way down. There was a moderate rally late in the session on the slight improvement in stocks and cotton but the-close was heavy. No attention was paid to news on the crop. The new schedule on margin requirements goes into effect next Saturday. However, Uie minimum requirements, as far as the nubile Is concerned, mean little, according to trade r«view as commission houses have for years been requiring as much If not more than the code minimum prescribes. All world grain markets will be closed Good Friday, while Liverpool will close early Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Notui American markets are to be closed Friday ""coarse Grains--Corn and other grains were dominated by the same factors that affected wheat and only moderate rallies frum the low points were registered during the dav although the demand for cash corn from the east was good. The break in corn failed to bring in any bids from abroad. Prevailing uncertainties in the general situation are likely to act- against any stabili- sation for tbe time being and we expect nervous markets. Butter--Generally speaking, we would say that today's market continues quite unsettled with a disposition on the part of most traders to await further developments before making new commitments. F,gs«--Quotations for cash eggs held unchanged this morning though market undertone did register some easiness early in the "comment: Pending the completion of all the March contracts on butter we look for an irregular and unsettled market. Believe that eggs will be accorded fairly good support at current levels or below. JNO. F. CLARK AND CO. MARKET INFORMATION 325 I. O. F. BIdg. Phone 845 1 'T i 1 Town Topics--Mr. Roosevel's advocacy of the present stock exchange bill brought a lot of selling into the market with leaders and many specialties getting around recent low levels. After a fitful rally, stocks drifted down again. Stock exchange seats sold at another 35 per cent decline. At least we know the worst that can happen in the way of stock exchange bills at this session of tbe congress and we might as well adopt the attitude th'at though the worst is none too good, there may be a change in the aspect of things when the bill is finally made into law. CLOSING PRODUCE LETTER Butter--Spot market quotations were lowered U cent top grades. Storage withdrawals in the four markets yesterday were 252,552 pounds heavier than last year. Futures were easier throughout the session. Market closed weak and shows lower tendency on later deliveries. Deliveries March contracts 76 cars. Eggs--All quotations on the spot market were unchanged. The storage input- in four markets yesterday was 20,638 cases less than last year. Hedging sales in October today were well absorbed and it was probable that more active buying is likely to ricveldn in this delivery around today's levels or slightly lower.
