FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 24 1936 CHICAGO LAMB PRICES HIT NEW HIGH SWINE STEADY, TOP STILL $11 Lower Grade Cattle Steady But Other Kinds Weak to Lower. CHICAGO, (J)--Lamb prices advanced to the highest point since -last December and to the best level ,:for April in several years Friday. -The market was 15 to 25 cents higher with the top for choice wooled offerings soaring to $11.75 per hundredweight in early dealings. Pronounced improvement in demand for lamb meat encouraged the upturn in the live market. · Wholesale prices of lamb meat have gained as much as $1.50 per hundredweight since the first of the week. Lower grades of cattle were cleared at steady prices but other . kinds ruled weak to lower. Some ^-weighty bullocks brought as much as $9.25 but the bulk of sales were made at $7.50 to $8.25. Computed on a quality basis, choice steers are selling lower than at any time since December, 1934, a year ago new five year high records were being established, with chpice beeves selling up as high as ,515.85. Receipts were low then and the market was so attractive that ·it was profitable to bring Canadian "steers here for slaughter. However, traders said the current prices here and in Canadian markets are not -favorable for the importation of Canadian beef to this market. Hogs were mostly steady Friday although some early sales were a to 10 cents higher. The close was dull and most bids were 10 cents or .more lower. Top held at $11.

CHICAGO, JP -- In nervously shifting trade, wheat scored gains ate Friday. Speculators were wary of the sell- ng side of the wheat market because of persistent dearth of mois- ure southwest, and owing to lack of response at Liverpool to price downturns here. Estimates were current that the Canadian government wheat board has holdings of but 137,000,000 bushels at the present time. Wheat closed firm, %-% above Thursday's finish, May $1.01%-',4, July 91%-%, corn off to i up.

Centralization of Tax Income m Statehouse Is Scored by Wilson CORRECTIONVILLE--"Straightjacket tax measures and the centralization of more and more tax income at the state house," were at tacked by Senator George Wilson candidate for the republican nomination for governor, at a conference of party workers here Friday noon.

"It is unjust for example, to have 96 per cent of all moneys for schoo purposes in Iowa raised by direcl tax on property. Any mandatory tax legislation thus falls heavies on our schools, and may penalizi those subdivisions which may havi no other source of revenue.''
