Base and corn limits on individual farms are now being given out by the township committees. BOARD IS CLOSE WITH ESTIMATE Hits Near Mark on Amount Paid in Under State . . Job Insurance. Iowa Daily Press Bureau. DBS MOINES^Estimates of the amount of money which Iowa employers would pay in under the terms of the unemployment compensation act and the number of employers v who would make the returns,.came so close to the mark that the two commissioners of what. will be a three man board and Garritt E. . Rbelofs, assistant to the commissioners, are thinking of setting up in the soothsaying business. It had-.been generally figured that 4,300 employers would pay in about $2,750,000 under the act for 1936. Monday night 4,100 employers had reported andithe commission had on hand 52,349,446.99. Mr. Roelofs pointed out that if the one-tenth of 1 per cent which the employer pays directly to the federal government is included, the total will be just about on the estimate. . . There are an unknown number of employers, however, who have not sent in their contributions as required by law, either because they do not understand their liability under the statute, or because of delay or neglect. Commissioners Claude M. Stanley ol Corning and Peter J. Kies of Dubuque decided late Monday that there would 'be no "crack down" but that employers liable under the act would ; be sent no.- tice they must comply within a specified time. Total of. 4,107 The total contributions to March 21, inclusive,, were $2,289,292.87 and Monday there was received $60,150.12. The number of contributors up' to and including March 21 was 4,047, with: 60 more reporting Monday, to .-make the total of 4,107. Just how much money was in . the mail to reach the commissioners before the deadline of midnight last nighi could not be estimated, but a rough guess put the figure a' 5150,000 o r more. · - . · ' - , The next report to be made by employers will be for the first quarter of 1937. A tentative deadline for that report-has been set as April 20, but no definite announcement has been made. Com- missiorters Stanley and Kies said they expected that eventually monthly reports will be required. The two commissioners are moving slowly, they said, because they do hot want to do something they might have, to undo, if and when appointment of a third'com- missioner is- made and -the .appointment confirmed by the state senate. 'The senate .has turned thumbs down on one appointee offered by Governor Kraschel and no one knows, or can be.induced to tell, .just who will get,the; job. Attend Conference Last week Commissioners Kies and Stanley were in Washington, for an interstate conference on unemployment laws and their administration. Forty states were represented, that many haying passed'laws or being :on the verge of completing them, whereas but 16 states were represented at the first such 'conference held in Madison, Wis.-, last December. The Iowa commissioners conferred with federal officials from the social security commission, including R. G. Wagenet, director of the unemployment compensation division of the social security board. They returned Saturday to then- offices in the Oransky building here where, on the fifth 'floor, has been installed the organization which they took : over from the executive cpuncilljand of which Roelofs was executive director.

Thus, when the commission's arrangements are complete, it will seek to find jobs for people with one hand and pay them, if they lose their jobs with the other. HOG PRICES STAY UP INTO APRIL That Is View of Iowa State College Extension Economists. . AMES -- Little change in hog prices will occur in the next three months if the predictions of mQst observers are correct, Iowa State college extension agricultural economists reported Tuesday although the more optimistic observers foresee a new 1937 top before the fall run appears in late April or May. While there are "plenty of hogs" left in the country, the Iowa State economists pointed out, it is generally believed that the "cleanup" of spring pigs is well under way. A few fall pigs are now coming on to the market, but because of the long fall farrowing period, these may be sold over a longer period this spring than usual. Consequently, the seasonal price decline during April and May is hot expected to be as large as usual, the economists reasoned. Improving business conditions are expected to lend strength to all retail markets including the pork trade. The demand situation is picking up in general since wage hikes, flood area reconstruction and revival pf strike-delayed business entered the picture. When carrying out his beheadings, Germany's professional executioner is required to wear somber formal dress, probably a cutaway. --Boston Transcript. ^Jl I^s^^^^^ Vvery t^'* t y P e Exclusive with Merkel's IN A P1CNFT* GLOVE $1 With tiie flattery of a frill ard a neatly * strapped wrist, "Courtier" sues for your favor.
