TWENTY-FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 29 ·M II · ··s i 51 END SESSION TO OPEN CAMPAIGNS Illinois Legislators Fail to . Replenish Treasuries of I; School Districts. '"SPRINGFIELD, m., March 29. e-Primary campaigns were regard- e'd as being more important than school aid legislation go the general assembly is now in recess until April 17. The assembly ended seven weeks M futile bickering and political ·wrangling late yesterday when both louses adjourned so that members could hurry back to their bailr- .wicks in quest of votes for re-nomination. When they departed they left behind not a single bill which will bring any immediate replenishment to' the tills of financially distressed school districts. Make No Appropriation, While house and senate have passed the measure diverting liquor tax revenues to the school distributive fund--the only school aid measure which got through both houses --they neglected to pass the corn- pinion bUl making the appropriation. ° ; The diversion bill without the appropriation measure is worthless. '" But tie failure to pass the appropriation is probably of small moment anyway. Governor Homer reiterated his intention of vetoing the liquor diversion bill. "·In addition'to.passing the liquor diversion measure, the senate yesterday passed, two other school aid tiills, neither of which have yet re- ceived'house sanction. -'· Alt Sales Tax Receipts. · 'One of the senate bills gives to the school distributive fund all sales tax receipts in excess of $2,500,000- morith. The other--sponsored by the Horner administration--diverts one- third of the gasoline taxes to school aid for one year. The senate was unable to muster a two-thirds vote for this bill so even if it is later passed by the house and approved by the governor it would-not become effective until July 1, with the result that the schools would receive no financial aid from it until after Aug. 1. Governor Homer described the legislature's efforts to date,as "an effective gesture which accomplishes nothing." EXPECT RUTH TO PLAY 100 GAMES OR MORE IN YEAR (Continued From Sports o far his overtures to rival clubs lave not been fruitful. Start New Infield. For the second time in three years the Yankees plan to start the sea- on with two new inf ielders. The ex- leriment did not click long in 1932 j-hen Jack Saltzgaver started at econd and Frankie Crosetti on third but McCarthy appears to have ecided Rolfe will do all the short- topping necessary and team up with Don Heffner, the Baltimore recruit, .t second. The shakeup puts Lazzeri on third and leaves Crosetti and Saltzgaver as-the likely utility infielders. Lary may replace one of these two, if he s not traded. First base will be well aken care of by the iron man, Lou ehrig, who appears ready for one f his biggest years. Byrd May Open. Sam Byrd, a great spring hitter, robably will start in center field, lanked "by Chapman and Ruth, but Earle Combs is still available. Hoag as been understudying Ruth in ex- ibition games but Dixie Walker is icing groomed to succeed the Babe, f and when the great man makes his final gesture as a regular. Bill Dickey, minus his appendix, will do. all the backstopping neces- ary but he has a promising young understudy hi Norman Kies, up rom the Newark farm. Arndt Jor- ;ens also is available.

Comparable to the gloom -which pervadec the financial district a little more than a year ago when the machinery of financ was at a standstill and few were willing t predict what the outcome of the moratorium would he, is the melancholy attitude pre dominating in the financial community to day. Notice is not being taken of develop me'nts of enhanced stability In many lines of business and continued recovery in others These signs are not being read from the! broad- significance because of the allege destructive Influences which will be oper atlvc upon enactment of the stock exchaog regulation bill. BROUGHT REVIVAL '"The outlook during the moratorium defie analysis, but the succeeding months brough many evidences of reviving national health The hope Is widely expressed in broke circles that were affected to a neglL extent by tha nervousness generated by th automobile strike threat, activity remainin close to the 50 per cent margin and th trade hopeful that- uncertainty had bee thoroughly eliminated by increased wage for steel and automobile workers. Iron Ag touched in a passing way upon the likelihoo of a mark up in steel prices which th publication considers "a logical sequel." Another major index, electricity produc tion, showed an expansion for last- wee commensurate with gains of recent week although slightly under that recorded ' the preceding week. The explanation, it wi believed, lies In the fact that with th ending of the moratorium production bega to assume more normal proportions. If th is '..rue, succeeding weeks' compilation should tend to disclose improvement on scale more in line with averages than wa the case in the last few weeks. RAILROAD SITUATION Although railroad reports of car loadmf indicated some recession from the precei ing week this was not considered great important In view of the consistent rise . handlings since the first of the year. A tentlon was directed more to the curren releases of February earnings which pro vided hope that final results for the moni would show an earning capacity better tha for any corresponding month since 1930. Foreign trade in February, as report, by the department o£ commerce, was n fected by seasonal Influences, but the '1 cllne from January's total was less tha half o£ what is normally considered ' sonal." Imports were about in line seasonal expectations and the effect of ti gold policy -was mirrored in receipts of 5451 600,000 of the precious metal during t last month. The prospect Is that wh* March figures are compiled an equally an possibly larger total of imports of -will be reported.

CHICAGO, March 29.-Wheat -- Wheat was .firm early, advancing ,.c to lc over yesterday's close but liquidation later by scattered longs, together with the same operations upsetting corn, resulted in a. loss of all gains and more. The strength was based on the idea that the action of congress in overriding the president's veto on the Independent offices bill carried inflationary possibilities and this was also believed to hare been the main factor in strengthening stocks. There was a little evening up during the morning for tomorrow's holiday and operation of the code which becomes effective next Saturday. May wheat acted tight at times and went to around ";lc over the July at the extreme, against half over yeserday at the finish. While there was some moisture reported over night In the northwest, it was generally light. North Dakota, however, reported as much as six inches of snow and the forecast suggested more snow might be expected in some sections. At the same time messages from that section indicated the lack of subsoil moisture which was likely to cause apprehension' later on as to the "crop. Western Kansas, also remained dry. Corn -- Corn broke around a cent early on rather heavy liquidation and closed lower than yesterday, following an early upturn I with wheat The dip represented a new low since last December for some deliveries. with stops being uncovered on the way down May went to a discount of 2 U c under July at the extreme, at which difference cash interests took the nearby future and sold the July, changing over hedges. Cash basis declined Vic to ',sc late in the day after being Vic higher early. Cash sales of corn today were 45.000 and bookings 5.000. Considering the break in corn. oats held up w-ell. The trend Saturday will likely depend upon weather and other developments over tho holiday.
