SOME CATTLE 25 GENTS HIGHER Heavier Receipts of Swine Are Reported Chicago, (rP) -- Activity in the hog market slackened Thursday on heavier receipts. Trading in the cattle market was very active and as much as 25 cents higher on all grades and weights. Bidding on lambs was about equal with Wednesday's market, but very lew sales were recorded. The salable receipts of 19,000 hogs Thursday were heavier than expected and packers had stocked their slaughter supply with 15,000 head bought at outside loading points. Indications were that a holdover of 6,000 head would result. Prices were lower than Wednesday, the top ol $13.85 was not paid freely.

Dealings continued light and most of the activity was provided by local traders, although there was a little mill buying in wheat shortly after the opening. Buying of rye appeared based on hopes the war food administration would succeed in its efforts to have some of this grain used in industrial alcohol production. There were reports of some wheat Hour sales to the family trade. Oats lagged at the start but came ahead with other grains toward the close. Corn bookings expanded from the comparatively low level of preceding days this week. Closing prices were at the day's highs.

Dealings slackened after a steady opening but picked up at intervals as the session proceeded. While steels, motors, rubbers and other pivotals failed to do much on the upside, they mostly recorded modest plus marks. Gains elsewhere were well maintained in the majority of cases near the close.

Prof, George Glockler, head of the department of chemistry, said that consideration is being given to an additional west wing of the chemistry building. In his annual report to alumni, he said the employment situation, judging from the number of requests received, must be remarkable. "Firms request chemists and chemical engineers of all descriptions, men or women, with or without degrees. Anyone wishing to.get a job now or to change jobs should have a f i n e chance, for the demand is unprecedented," Professor Glockler said. The draft situation in relation to graduate students is a difficult problem, he said. Although direc- ives from selective service headquarters advise draft boards that men in chemical training are to be carefully considered for deferment, the local boards are paying ess and less attention to these statements. The department's "basic thought of operation is to carry on and do everything asked in" order to help the war effort," declared Professor Glockler. Much of the teaching during the past year has been concerned with the cadets of the army specialized training program, involving more than 500 Call Manly Operator., to Cedar Rapids Task Furman, 2nd the Rock Island here, left Tuesday for Cedar · M a n l y -- H .
