CORN LEADS IN MARKET UPTURN September Futures Are Put Over $1 a Bushel CHICAGO, fP) -- Corn led a fresh upturn in the grain marke Saturday with gains of as much as 2 cents a bushel at one stage that put September futures contracts over 31 a bushel for the first time since 1937. Wheat was up about a cent to new tops for more than five years, May futures selling as high as $1.41. Mil] buying of wheat and rye and purchases of corn by industries together with general com- nission house and professional rade activity accounted for the :resh upturn of prices. Wintry weather and wartime demand for corn products xvas a factor in the market. Wheat closed % to 1% cent ligher than Friday; May SI.40% o $1.41; July $1.41 # to 31.41%; corn llj to 2 higher; May 99 to 98%; July 93", to 99%; oats % to s higher; rye l',i to 1% higher; oybeans l=i to 2 higher. STOCK TRADE IS LIVELY Market Works at Cross Purposes for Trends NEW YORK, (/P)--The stock market Saturday continued to work at cross purposes in one of the liveliest short sessions since early November, Large blocks oE low-priced utilities, the majority of which were about unchanged, accounted mainly for the better volume which was around 400,000 shares'for the two hours against 259,000 last Saturday. The list displayed mild irregularity at the start. The power and light group lost some of its rising power as the proceedings got under way but a number of specialties pushed upward and modest advances were posted for selected rails, steek and scattered industrials. Numerous leaders, however, were unable to make any progress and, near the close, uneven tendencies persisted. Despite the cloudy " market scene, nev/ 1942-43 tops were reached by General Gas Electric "A," United Gas Improvement, Zenith Radio, Davison Chemical and U. S. Leather "A." American Telephone got up about a point. In front occasionally--some eventually backed away--were Western Union, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Kennecott, Montgomery Ward, Douglas Aircraft and Yellow Truck. Limping at intervals w e r e Standard Oil (N. J.), Chesapeake Ohio, American Can, Chrysler, ^oodrich, Lpew's, Paramount, Allied Chemical, Johns-ManviUe Boeing and International Nickel Norfolk Western lost several points. Reorganization rail bonds kept ioing on the upside.

CARVER RITES ARE SIMPLE Former Slave Buried on Campus of Tuskegee TUSKEGEE, Ala., fij.fi)--Brief and simple funeral services, .in keeping with the life he lived, were held Friday for Dr. George Washington Carver, the former slave who became one of America's greatest scientists. The Rev. Harry V. Richardson, chaplain o£ Tuskagee Institute where Dr. Carver taught since 1B96, read the funeral sermon for the 79 year old scientist, who died Tuesday. Messages 'from prominent persons, including one from President Roosevelt, commending the work and life of the Negro educator, were read by the Rev Charles W. Kelly, pastor of the Greenwood Baptist church at the institute. Burial was in the cemetery on the institute campus. Messages of condolence meanwhile 'continued to arrive, including one from Vice Presiden! Henry Wallace, who once roamed the fields with Dr. Carver in search of bugs and flowers when Wallace was a student at Iowa State college and the scientist was Ms teacher. ft * '* * if * "Conquer or Perish" Message Used by Nazi Overlords to Keep German People United (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the final dispatch In a series dealing with conditions inside Germany in the fourth war winter.)

He drove his car on to the shoulder o£ the road and got out the petition adds, when a truck driven by Mr. Tibbits also came over the hill and smashed into his car. He accuses Mr. Kempf of negligence in not setting out warning flares and claims that Mr. Tibbits was driving at an excessive speed. The petition asks S570.43 for car repairs, S75 for 15 days' loss of the use of the car. S113.50 for doctor and dentist bills for his w i f e ' and daughter who were injured in the collision, $66 for their nursing care, S40 for two suitcases destroyed in the crash, S2,000 for injuries to his wife's neck and right leg and nervous shock and A single person or a married person not living with husband or Wife is entitled to a personal exemption, of $1,200 for the year if he can qualify as head of a family. A head of family is "an individual who actually supports and maintains in one household one or more individuals who are closely connected with him by blood relationship, relationship by marriage or by adoption and whose right to exercise family control and provide Eor these dependent individuals is based upon some moral or legal obligation." Examples of head of family status would be a widower or widow who maintained a home'for a dependent child, or a son who supported and maintained a household for a dependent father or mother. In order to meet the test of actual support and maintenance as head of a family, the benefactor must furnish more than one-half of the support and maintenance. * *. * The term "in one household" ordinarily means under one roof but if a father is absent on business or a child or other dependent is away at school or on a visit, the common home being still maintained, the head ot family exemption, would still apply. Where a parent is obliged to maintain his dependent children with relatives ar in a boarding house while he lives elsewhere, the additional exemption may still apply. If, however, without necessity the dependent continuously makes his riome elsewhere, his benefactor is not the head of a family irrespective of the question of support. The term "closely connected by blood relationship" applies to a personjs progenitors and lineal descendants, to his brothers or sisters, whether by the whole or haU blood, and to his uncles, aunts, nephews and nieces. Irrespective of any legal obligation of the taxpayer to support such dependent relatives, a moral obligation to do so exists and if the individual is actually supporting and maintaining m one household relatives of this degree he is entitled to head of family exemption.' A taxpayer is considered to be "closely connected by marriage" with his step-sisters and stepbrothers, but whether his right "to exercise family control and provide for these individuals is based upon some moral or legal obligation must be decided upon the facts in the particular case. The same considerations apply to the status of a taxpayer because of support furnisher to his father- in-law, mother-in-law, brother- in-law and sister-in-law. First cousins by blood and cousins of lesser degree are not regarded as so "closely connected by blood relationship" as to give rise to a head of family exemption. A legal guardian who may maintain and support in his home a dependent ward is not entitled to the personal exemption as head of a family if the ward was not connected wtih him by relationship ot blood, marriage or adoption; nor is a taxpayer entitled to exemption as head of a fanjily by her shoulders. I for nervous shock e-iuuipiiun as ncaa 01 a la and spraining of virtue of maintenance and ^y | of a child not legally adopted. Goebbels, preaching "conquer or perish" has successfully propagandized fear of the day of reckoning, j The German people fear the swelling allied military power. They fear coming events of the battlefields. They fear that the day of vengeance for the Russians, Poles, Czechs and other naai victims is coming. But most oi all they fear the gestajio. . Observers reaching the frontier believe that Adolf Hitler's gift of fear to ihe Germans has united them (or the country, but they are certain that eventually it will result in swift and complete collapse on the home front when the axis armies are beaten decisively. * * * There are undercurrents of unrest apparent already. Goebbels' slogan, "wheels roll for victory," has been distorted into a popular cynicism, "heads roll for victory." There is no sign of a real military or popular uprising against Hitler yet, but observers agree that Munich, the birthplace of naziism, is the center of outspoken grumbling and complaining. It is questionable whether this is a serious threat of revolt or merely a nazi-approved "blowing off steam," giving an illusion of freedom and providing an outlet for futile opposition that the ges- tapo could easily quench. In Munich Hitler is criticized openly without respect for the swarming gestapo, and "the dirty Prussians" are blamed even for the deterioration of the famous .Munich beer. Some travelers report the existence of several embryonic peace movements there, but more reliable sources agree Hie unrest is mainly harmless grumbling. Germany's intellectual life has reached a new low level. Almost no books are printed because of the paper shortage. Allocation of paper supplies to the churches has been suspended and prayer books are unobtainable. The Swedish Protestant church offered to provide prayer books for Germany, aut .the government refused the offer. Male students in universities are rare, although there are more women students than ever before. Tear and unrest are reflected in widely separated sections. Discontent is reported in Austria, where 'he Catholic church is unfriendly to the nazi party and the strong socialist workers movements never have been completely crushed. Austria is described as "the German's bomb shelter" because of :he hundreds of nazis who have fled there from royal air force raids. * * * Mysterious fires and breakdowns have been reported in factories in the Ruhr valley and even in Berlin. A few strikes against the 70-hour work u-eek have been quickly and ruthlessly suppressed in the Ruhr. Fear has penetrated even to the army ranks. It is reflected by repeated official appeals to the German people to "write cheerful letters to the troops and avoid any depressing remarks." The constant fear and uncertainty has created a sort of escapist gaiety in Berlin and other cities where an effort is made to escape the strain. There was a splurge of enthusiasm for horse-racing last autumn and a rush for the most expensive seats in (lie theaters and movies which were sold out for weeks in advance. The over-priced luxury restaurants turned aside all but their oldest customers. The less expensive eating places likewise were crowded, although dancin" has been banned since the start of the Russian campaign. Cocktails usually are made of wine and fruit juices. The legitimate and motion pic- lure offerings are heavily propa- jandistic, but they also are largelv escapist. One movie hit was billed as "giving the most lovely illusions of love and happiness." The State Theater presented Salome. The Winter Garden advertised a dance review with "a doscn real Shetland ponies." Scala has burlesque, which like many other stage shows, presents the greatest degree of feminine nudity. *r- W JA The feminine question itself has presented a major problem for the uazis, with 8.000,000 foreign workers within the Reich. Drastic penalties, including death, recently were instituted for war prisoners who have relations with German women. Travelers, quoting Italian diplomats in Berlin, said statistics showed that at least 8,000 illegitimate children bad been bom to Berlin ·women dnr- the past year. * ¥ * Letters found in possession of ans taken prisoner on the ig fronts reflect the home- worries of the soldiers. A Rumanian in Germany, writing a friend on the Russian front, said: "The German women are losing control of themselves. They are very depressed. Karl, home on eave, divorced his wife because she was with child by a war prisoner." Thc nazis increasingly refuse women permission to travel out- SPORTS SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON NEW YORK, (IP)--When something unusual turns up like last xveek's 159-point game between Fordham and Rhode Island or a player like Harry Boykoff of St. John's, who is both extra-tall and extra-good, the basketball experts ask, "But is it basketball?" . . . This columnist, admittedly no part of an expert, is led to cross-question, "Well, just what is basketball?" . . . Listening in on coaches' arguments, we hear there is eastern basketball, mid- western basketball. Pacific coast basketball and maybe other sectional variations; Phog Allen says the east and west are farther apart than ever; Ed Kelleher says it ain't so, they're getting closer all the time . . . And Corp. Julius Kasner, who used to be a college star in Brooklyn and who now coaches the Camp Kohler, Cal., team and plays for Mather field, explains it this way: "On the coast everything is a planned play like in football. Back east we adapt our style to suit the occasion. We don't try to arrange our plans in advance." . . . Maybe that helps explain the popularity of one old cat. P. S. Our own taste is more for "ivy league" basketball .. . The teams usually have a couple of football players .who forget themselves in times of stress and are likely to bounce opponents around the floor as well as the ball when they dribble . . . It isn't always good but there's lots of action SIMPLE SOLTTTION Easiest way that we can see to avoid the necessity of converting Florida's' stake horses into steak liorses would be to open up a couple of those, well-equipped betting parlors in downtown Miami under track and state supervision . . . Races could be run at Tropical and Hialeah and the customers could remain within walking distance of home . . . If anyone insisted on seeing the horses run, the tracks could provide movies of the previous day's races, or even television equipment . . . Only difficulty we can see is that after the war there'd be quite a job .persuading the horse players to make the long trip to the tracks and risk fresh air poisoning. SERVICE DEPT. Soldiers at the army air forces technical school at Sioux Falls, S. D., thought the football season had been extended when they heard that the 85th aviation squadron had defeated the quartermasters, 54-0. But it was merely the top performance oi the 85th squadron basketball team . . . Boatswain 2 C.
