FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE APRIL 3 1934 DEBRTEVAUJE OF "HILLBILLY" Should He Be Recognized or Apologized for Like Poor Relation. SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 3. UP) --Is the "hillbilly" with his superstitions, hia wierd remedies and his hoedown dances, an asset or a liability to the Ozarks mountain region of Missouri and Arkansas? Should he be apologized for like a poor relation? Or should he be recognized for his quaint individuality? These questions have started a furore. It all started when a Springfield committee began scouring the hills for examples'' of hillbilly culture-ballads, square dances, singing schools, play parties, religious forms, superstitious beliefs, and clothes--for a folklore festival April 17-18. Best specimens are to be en' tered-in a national festival at St. Louis the last week of this month. ' Ask for Assistance. Asked for financial assistance, the chamber of commerce protested, explaining it would not be a party to putting on a "freak show." "We're not in favor of advertising to the world that we're ignorant Why call back the things we've been trying to forget? Missouri already has received a lot of unfavorable publicity, and Arkansas has had more." All of which just about made Mrs. May Kennedy McCord, folklore authority, "boil over," as she put it. But in a calmer mood, she excused "those men because they don't understand what we're trying to do." tetters Pour in. The issue didn't stop here, how- however. Letters began pouring in commenting on the chamber's stand. To the undaunted Mrs. McCord and the festival committee, one in particular furnished encouragement. Thomas Fauntleroy, · Memphis, Tenn., newspaper editor, suggested that the civic organization be put on show instead of the hillbilly. Others supported the chamber directors. One from Richard Lloyd Jones, Tulsa, Okla., editor, said "neither industries nor better home eeekeis want to settle among people who glory in their crudeness." NOT TO RETARD SPRING UPTURN 2 Per Cent Sales Tax Not Bar, Iowa Professor _ _ _ · ' · Predicts. IOWA crrr, April s. cs»--Iowa's 2 -per cent sales tax will not retard the "brisk spring upturn" of business in the state, Prof. George K- Davies, statistician for the University of Iowa bureau of business research, predicted today. "We shall scarcely notice it except for the trouble of making change if the rising tide of business continues," he said. "Generally speaking, a tax transfers purchasing power and its long run effec depends upon the wisdom with which the funds thus raised are ad ministered;" .The business expert pointed ou that more wage earners were a work in manufacturing during Feb ruary than in any other month sine October, 1930, and predicted the up ward trend would continue. "I do not anticipate that the sale tax just put into operation will in jure business in any material way lie concluded. PLAY HARDlOR VICTORY-RAJAH (Continued From Sports Page) I do know they will be hustling, tha they will play better ball than the did last year and that the pitchin is going to be greatly improved. W have several great prospects in fe lows like Buck Newsome, who wo 30 games in the coast league, an Jim Weaver, who won 25 with New ark in the International. If some of the younger men lik Alan Strange, the shortstop from the coast, make the grade, this club may move up several notches and give them all trouble. Man for man, especially with players like Irving Burns and Ossie Melillo in the infield, Sam West in the outfield and seasoned pitchers such as George Blaeholder and Bump Hadley, we stack up pretty well with some of the clubs that are · talking now about being in the pennant race. No Difference in the Leagues. People ask me what it's like to Toe managing an American league team after all the years I have spent in the National or whether there's any differences to worry about. The answer is that baseball is played the same in both leagues. It takes time to size up the opposing players, the weakness or strength of batters and pitchers. I saw all the other clubs in the two months I managed the Browns last season, so I have a pretty .fair idea :r» have Cochrane. That spreads le strength around and makes it iteresting.

PESSIMISM IN GRAIN MARKET Downturns Predominate as Corn and Wheat Show Weakness. CKICAGO, April 3. UB--Trade sentiment regarding- grain values became notably pessimistic today, and downturns of quotations predominated, with shrinkage of speculative interest a conspicious feature. AtterrJion of traders focused 'a good deal on Washington reports that experts of the department of agriculture were in favor of the newest bill to enforce further drastic regulation of commodity exchanges. Notice was also taken, of a tentative unofficial forecast that the United States total prospective wheat supply July 1 would be approximately a billion bushels, against $913,000,000 the current season. Wheat Closes Nervous. Wheat closed nervous at the same as yesterday's finish to % lower, May 85%-7 8 , July 85%-%; corn H- 14 down, May 47%-48, July 50%- J ,i; oats y-% off, and provisions varying from 7 cents decline to a rise of 2 cents. The best soaking received in a long while was reported from the Dakotas and Minnesota, with heavy snow in Montana. Advices said that as a result, the spring seeding of wheat would be greatly helped. Predictions were for immediate further moisture. Influence on Wheat. Corn market weakness, attributed to liquidating sales of May corn, had a contributory bearish influence on wheat and also on oats. May oats reached a new low price record since Oct. 21. Houses with eastern connections were the principal sellers of May corn, breaking the market to around last week's low point. Provisions followed downturns of hog- values and of grains. Wheat futures purchases yesterday totaled 7,381,000 bushels, corn 2,935,000. Open interest in wheat was 115,452,000 bushels, and · in corn 93,454,000. Corn receipts in Chicago today were 46 cars, a week ago 90, and a year ago 69.

Lack of Government Buying Factor in Depressing of Prices. CHICAGO, April 3. (tPi--The hog market dropped sharply lower today, chiefly of its own weight. Demand for dressed meat was practically at a standstill and this, coupled with the nonappearance of government buying, served to depress prices. A few early sales of good hogs ere reported at $4.25, the day's p, but later prices dropped with .10 as the practical peak. This arried most quotations under the 4 mark, the bulk selling at ?3.75 $4.10. Receipts were not excessive. The rincipal western markets reporting rrivals a little heavier than last uesday, but lighter than a year go. Prices ranged from 10 to 20 nts lower. Failure of the federal relief cor- oration to institute its proposed ew program of buying was one of IB chief depressing factors. Cattle trade was steady to weak, est steers topped early at 57.40 ith best lots held up to $7.65. rade was greatly delayed by a eavy rain, but most steers sold at i.50 to $7. Sheep were weak. Fat lambs ere slow getting under way. Most were under $9, on offerings eld above ?9.25. Hogs closed 10-151 lower; cattle steady to eak; sheep 15-25C lower. NEW YORK POULTRY. NEW YORK, April 3.

Only slight recovery from the lows of the toy was witnessed. Small operations, especially n wheat, continued to Influence prices to more than a normal extent. On the whole, buyers were not- Inclined to follow the small rallies of the day and the light buy ng power was as much responsible for the easiness as the scattered selling. Sentiment was anything but cheerful, the light interest in grain as well as other speculative markets being a factor tending to reduce operations everywhere. Washington advices indicated that experts of tie department of agriculture were in favor of regulation of commodity exchanges. Dr. Emvel, administrator of the grain futures section, was me of those testifying. He talked against the effect of large scale trading operations and was quoted as saying that "It might be advisable to limit the entire trading one day to two or three million bushels in the case of wheat." Neither the sharp advance in sterling nor weather news attracted more than passing attention. Beneficial moisture was reported in parts of the northwest. As much as two Inches of rain was reported at one point in South Dakota and numerous other sections in the Dakotas and Minnesota received moisture In lesser amounts. However, there was again persistent mention of the lack of the subsoil moisture in those sections. Kansas reported dust storms again today with official returns Indicating the entire state would he benefited by rain. Coarse Grains--May corn sold off nearly a cent from yesterday's finish. Longs sold the nearby future while cash houses bougnt May and sold July. However. In the past few days, the decrease In the open interest In May has been In excess of the Increase in the distant futures, sugcostlnc that there has been more or less outright- sell- Ing of the nearby future. Domestic cash demand was fairly good but country bookings decidedly limited. See no change Ini prevailing character of the market as Washington developments are awaited. Butter--With quotations practically unchanged today, there was little buying by The market undertone, however, little improvement.
