Some Weird ' Animals in Stockyards By WILLIAM FERRS Chicago, Sept. 5 — (/P)— Some • weird looking meal animals were stumbling into the slockyards to-; day as arrivals at all livestock, markets declined drastically jn 'ihe . first week of revived OPA ceilings , on hogs and caltlc. , Most of the calllc received" here for slaughter were dried up cows, offering a highly unappetizing type of meat ior consumers. They were practically lost in the Great Union stockyards which last week were ; jammed with bawling steers.- All former low volume ' Chicago records were broken yesterday when only 1,200 cattle, 700 hogs and 800 sneep and lambs arrived. Nearly all of thc 8,000 pens wcr ocmpty. An equally sorry lot of hogs was being unloaded. These consisted of, emaciated sows, boars and inferior grades ot pigs. Livestock observers said there was :iot one good pork chop in the bunch. Similar unimpressive runs were reported at other marketing centers. As the receipt sdwindlcd. •• many packers began laying ofi workers. Thc number of salable caltlc arriving at 12 major mid-western markets thc first three days this week totaled 59,800 head. Isv thc same period last week, 246,500 head arrived. An even more drastic drop was shown in hogs. Salable arrivals Ihis week lolalcd only 15,000 head against 122,100 head in thc same day last week. Meat packers were nol surprised at thc dearth of offerings. They had predicted it. Nearly everything which rntild be marketed, including some light caltlc and hogs which should have been held back on "arms, was unloaded in thc period ot price-free markets, observers explained. Livestock men would not predict how long thc small receipts would continue. Ordinarily, thov noihtnd out, hog arrivals fall off in September and then slart increasing toward Ihc end ot thc year. He- ccipls normally arc heaviest in January and February. Cattle receipts usually arc heaviest in October and .November. Last week, with restrictions lifted, the markets were iloodcd '.s'ilh catllc and hogs and a record high of $30.25 was paid 'or steers. Thc previous ceilings on cattle wore $10 as compared with the present maximum of $20.25. Ceil- ngs on hogs nosv nro $16.25 compared with $14.75 up lo last June 30.

Here in Arkansas livestock particularly has come to the front; but cotton still remains the No. 1 cash item in the over-all Southern farm picture. Everyone knows what the threat to cotton is. A famous tire company switches from cotton to rayon "'cord in the manufacture of carcasses for tires.. Synthetics have cut deeply into markets formerly dominated by the South's tough and durable staple. The Council quote,* L. T.

"With these two run-of-thc-crop melons we challenge Texas and demand once and for all a decision on the watermelon championship," the governor wrote.

BURTON HEATH Growing Pains There arc powerful arguments behind Ihe American proposal that thc United Nations should grant membership en masse to all of the eight applicants who sought that privilege. Long, bitter wrangling would have been avoided, at a time when feeling already is run- ing high.
