AMES, April 17. (SP)--Two Iowa tate college economists--Erling Hole and R. C. Bcntley--speculat- d today on how to utilize Iowa's ealed corn, but they came to no ut and dried conclusions. Mr. Hole, who witi Professor Jentley has been working on the orn loan problem, offers two sugestions: 'Either farmers must carry out eeding operations on much less orn, leaving stocks en farms larg- r than calculated, or they must uy back before Aug. 1, the date oans are due, corn needed for feed- ng purposes until the new crop is ribbed." Depends on Ratio. Professor Bentley said that there a good opportunity to use the ulk of sealed corn by heavy feed- ig operations if livestock prices each a point where feeding 45 ent corn is profitable. If prices do ot strengthen, Professor Bentley aid that a further liquidation of vestock may be anticipated. Just how much sealed corn will e released for feeding purposes epends largely upon the feeding atio, Bentley said. He believes that crop conditions are normal dur- g the coming season corn prices kely will not fluctuate greatly 'om present levels. Mr. Hole produced figures which how that there are more cattle eing fed on farms this year than ast; there were as many hogs on arms Jan. 1 as there were a year jo; and the spring pig crop is es- mated at 104 per cent, a little arger than last year. Are Roughed Through. Professor Beutley pointed out in xplanation that although there re as many feeders as in other ears they are not on heavy feed, "e said the feeders are being oughed through with the hope the larket will strengthen. State department officials estimate that more than 130 million ushels of Iowa corn are now un- er seal.. Loans will be made on orn until May 1. Professor Bentley pointed out hat the bulk of the sealed corn s in the cash grain areas of Iowa --in the north-central part and long the Missouri river. The econ- mist has found, however, that in he heavy feeding areas--east-cen- ral and northwest Iowa--most of he counties have sealed" from :two is normally "shipped there. " ' He said that much of the corn in e heavy feeding areas was sealed on short time loans last December, the owners hoping for strengthened livestock prices so they could take up their notes and continue feeding programs. Liquidation Is Marked. "With the short crop east of Iowa and the increase in livestock being fed, it could be expected that about the normal shipment of 65 million bushels would leave the state," Professor Bentley went on. "A further disappearance of corn" within the state could also be expected." He pointed out, however, that "the feeding ratio being unfavorable during the latter part of the summer, and still more since the advent of the 45 cent loans on corn, a greater number of hogs left the feed lot earlier than usual. The liquidation has been marked in the last four months:" The economist continued that the large volume of corn stored in terminal markets indicates that there is little demand from eastern feeders. He said this corn will have to be taken off the market before prices strengthen much in the surplus areas in Iowa. Government Estimate Low. Mr. Hole said that the average monthly disappearance of corn from the state for the 19 years, 1923 to 1933, was 30 million bushels. Based on the normal monthly disappearance of corn, calculating stocks on farms and assuming the stocks at the end of the year are in the same ratio as the 10 year period, Mr. Hole estimated that stocks on farms Aug. 1 yould be 132 million bushels.

IOWA PALLS, April 17.--Genevieve Reig of Alden won first in the Hardin county spelling contest here Saturday evening. The contest here was the largest in the history of the county and brought 88 entries from all parts of the county. The contest was sponsored by the Community club of Iowa Falls. The school plaque will go to the Alden school for the coming year and will be awarded to the school winning the honor next spring.

The judges were Fern · Reisinger of Buckeye; Carmen Miller of district No. 5, Alden township; Dora Granner of Owasa. Donald Robinson lost first honors when he mispelled "appraiser" which Miss Reis spelled correctly. pointed out, however, that the government estimate of stocks on farms, Jan 1., which was 288 million bushels, was low this year compared with crop and carryover. The economist added that "Distribution of stocks on farms on that date (Jan. 1) on equal monthly disappearances gives stocks on farms Aug. 1 of 103 million bushels. If this is approximately correct the present amount of sealed com on Iowa farms is about 25 to 27 per cent in excess of what would be expected on farms Aug. 1." Hole pointed out that Iowa's 1933 corn crop of 440 million bushels was slightly above normal, although the total for the United States was considerably below normal. He said further that Iowa's carryover on farms was more than 50 million bushels, the largest recorded since 1921. 100 Honor Lake Mills Couple on Anniversary LAKE MILLS, April IT--A group of about 100 friends and relatives of Mr. a nd Mrs. Pete Weberg gathered at the parlors of the Synod church Sunday afternoon to celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
