The Weather Bureau said today that recent showers had eased the critical threat to the corn crop but that the greater portion of the Midwestern corn belt still needs a general rain. The bureau said the hot, dry weather also is retarding cotton in some sections although the condition of the crop generally is considered "fairly good.' It said in many instances corn planted on thin soil already has been damaged beyond any hope of recovery. There has been other reports of insufficient pollination and corn maturing with short kernels. The Agriculture Department reported previously that farmers in some parts of Ohio already have hope of salvaging a crop under their corn in preparation for winter wheat planting. Importation of foods prohibited. certain luxury limitations on Hope For Record Wheat Crop Meanwhile the grain harvest, including wheat, was reported practically co'mplele except in a few states along the northern U. S border and in the northern Rockies. Officials look to a record wheat yield to somewhat offset the poor corn crop. In its last official report, based on crop conditions Aug. 15, the department estimated the corn crop at 2,437,000,000 bushels. The crop presumably deteriorated even more before this week's partial relief. The original goal was 3,000,000,000 bushels. In Iowa, a key corn state, the crop ranged from poor for late corn fo fairly good for early corn. Development was reported aboul tOOCls proniOHCU. imuuiuvua v i i " J i »~ ;., T^.ro with ahnilt number of public luncheons and 10 days late m Iowa with about at them nine-tenths of the crop still in the silking stage and only about one-third at roasting ear size.
