20 Thursday, March 16, 1911 ' MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE EAR CORN PRICE REVISED BY OPA Corn Transportation Charges Also Fixed Maximum prices for sales of car corn have been dropped by the office of price administration to below the ceiling price for shelled corn, it was revealed Thursday by the Cerro Gordo war price and rationing board. The maximum price for ear corn now "shall be the maximum price for a like sale of shelled corn less the cost that would be paid by the seller to make the conversion from ear corn to shelled corn." The purchase price and transportation charges by trucker- merchant also are regulated now, it was announced. "A person who purchases corn for resale and transports and delivers the same to his buyer" may only pay "the maximum price he could lawfully have paid to the person from whom he purchased the corn plus transportation to his buyer's receiving point." He is allowed at least a 2',4 cent markup a bushel, however. Transportation of shelled corn 100 miles or less shall be 3 cents a hundred pounds for the first 5 miles plus 1 cent a hundred pounds for each succeeding 5 miles. For ear corn, the price is doubled. For more than 100 miles, the charge is "the lowest carload rail rate from rail points nearest the point of origin to the point of destination plus 8 cents per 100 pounds."

POSTWAR BOOM IN BUYING SEEN Cleveland Looks for Spurt When War Ends By. LEE LINDER United Press Staff Correspondent I Cleveland, (U.PJ--If World war II should end tomorrow, cold cash --estimated at $167,664,870--will pour into consumer markets from overflowing Cleveland pocketbooks. Quests for new (if possible) automobiles, homes, household appliances T and household furnishings will loosen the wholesale spending in the immediate sunrise o£ the postwar era, according to Cleveland business interests. Representing a fraction less than 1 per cent of the total U. S. population, Cleveland is said to possess 1.35 per cent of the nation's entire buying power. A market analysis of consumer buying made by the Chamber of Commerce supplies that fact. In order of importance, according to Chamber figures, Cleveland folks will buy mechanical refrigerators, radios, washing machines, stoves and vacuum cleaners. Autos and new homes rank next on the list. / ' Further breaking down the statistics, it is estimated that 137,550 people will spend $16,114,785 in CIe\-eland for household appliance within 6 months after the armistice. In addition, 64,400 Clevelanders intend spending 59,604,035 for household furnishings, while the will and intent of 36,750 taxpayers is to pay $44,651,50 for the privilege of owning a new car. And finally, there are 15.400 residents who will shell out $96,994,800 to buy or build a new home. However, even these figures don't tell the whole buying story. The Cleveland home builders--· 15,400 o£ them--don't include the 29,440 families--planning to repaint their homes or the 11,680 who will want new roofing. Then there are 8.480 planning interior decorations; 8,160 who are going to install new heating equipment; 3,680 who are talking about outside remodeling; 7.200 planning to build additions to their homes, and 4,960 who intend modernizing their kitchen. In 1941, dealers sold 56,210 automobiles in Cleveland. Compare that with the intended purchase of 36,750 cars--if they are available --in the first 6 months o[ the postwar period. Also, the 15,400 families who \vill buy or build new homes is nearly triple the 6.220 new dwelling purchasers in Cleveland in 1941--the biggest peacetime consumer spending year in the nation's history. j Single Company Broke Japs' Kwajalem Drive With Seventh Army Division at Kwajalein, (U.R)--One company of one battalion of one regiment of the 7th division was credited by division officers with possibly shortening conquest of this desolate island by many days. The company, led by Copt. Robert Foulston. 25. Wichita, K;ins.. formed outside s h i e l d against the Japanese major counter-attack, launched the night of our assault. "The Japs began moving down the airstrip on our left flank," Capt. Foulston said. "They were coming 50 and 100 at a time, sneaking along in the darkness. Our machine guns opened up but the Nips kept coming, and some of them died right at the muzzles of the guns." j The determined Japanese assault continued all night, and the company produced many examples ot heroism in defending its position. When dawn finally came, Sgt. Marvin Raabe, Lincoln, N e b r., leader of a machine gun platoon, was still firing and the Jap drive had been broken. Capt. Foulston estimated between 400 and 500 Japanese were involved, and many were killed. The company's losses were only 2 dead and 15 wounded.
