'As an Iowa rarrr. editor. Vice President Henry Wallace started the contests almost 20 years ago. He had heard farm hands brag of. the work they could do during the fall harvest season. He first put local favorites In a Jifld to compete, against each other, letting them try to prove their claims. Wallace also played a leading part In the development of hybrid corn. As hybrid yields have increased, huskers have made higher records with the bigger and more numerous ears. The 18th national contest today was held in one of tJie best corn fields ever made the site of a tournament. As a result, the huskers aimed at a new record, last year Irvin Bauman of Illinois boosted the national record to 46.71 bushels In the standard 80 minutes of gruelling competition. Bauman has retired and the man most watched among the corn rows was the new Illinois state champion. Floyd Wise of La fialle county, who last Friday husked 50.96 bushels of corn. Wise's sensational mark was made in the rain and mud that kept the customary big crowd away from the state contest. Spectators Arrive Early With increasing rural interest, crowds of 150,000 have attended national contests in the past.

And.'strangely, thr merchants were not made unhappy hv '.he ? r < r *.. for 'he farmers were back in thr fields after a long absence on account of the rainy weather. The protracted rain has held up the corn picking harvest, thr soybean crop and has held back, also, the planting of winter wheat. The recent wet spell has been a dismal climax to an otherwise auspicious crop season. The rains have caused the corn In many fields to tall down, ears have sprouted on the ground and soybean ponds have split open, allowing the precious beans to scatter. But. today the farmers—such a.s clW not drive to \M. husking contest In La Salle county—have been In the fields putting in some really hard work. Nazis a Bit Vague With Charges U. S. Attacked Germany * (Continued from page one) aid of Germany If Germany Is "attacked." Hitler, however, apparently does not choose to call Japan to his aid at this moment, perhaps because of the strong common front that the United States, Britain and the Dutch present today in the Far East. Unless past performances are reversed, Hitler will try to find some way to split that common front before he summons Japan to action as a fighting military ally. GERMANY SITS TIGHT The German government kept It* own counsel today on what might develop from its declaration that the United States . had attacked Germany. German spokesmen, however. Raid thtt the Reich's charges of Saturday had found unreserved approval of the other members of the three- power pact, Japan and Italy. Vlrginlo Gayda. authoritative fascist editor, contributed to the dispute by charging anew that the United States was attacking Italian submarines in the Mediterranean. Referring to a speech last Saturday by Navy Secretary Knox, Gayda asked in II Glornale D'ltalia: "Is the United States in the war? If so let it say so and not complain about possible armed reactions of the axis powers when its ships venture into the war eone." The German statement, based on United States naval activity in the Atlantic, set the stage for possible invoking of the axis pact under which Germany, Italy and Japan pledged mutual aid in ca*e of an at tack on any of them by a power not involved in the European or Far Eastern wars, Signs mutiplled In Tokyo', however, that Japan would refrain from any hasty action although opinion pre vailed there that she would be more likely to accept the German than the American version of incidents involving those powers in the Atlantic.

CHAIN UVIEW By Franklin Mullin CHICAGO — (AP) — House committee aprpoval of legislation which would permit otreal price* to rise considerably generated enough buying to give the grain market an upward slant today. Early price gains were reduced and in some cases eliminated, however, when the market reacted due to profit taking and Washington re- porU that the present form of price control legislation may meet with much opposition. Wheat at one time showed small net losses and closed unsettled. Soybeans, up more than 3 oente early In the day, fall more than 4 centa from the highs due to Increased profit taking and hedging. Market experts estimated ceilings under approximately $1,50 a bushel for wheat and $1.10 for corn in Chicago could not be Invoked on the basis of the price control bill approved by the house banking committee. Although wheat showed early gains of more than a cent, with rye up as much, prices reacted later due to profit taking and hedging sales. Brisk shipping business in corn strengthened that cereal. Receipts were: Wheat 9 cars, corn 160, oals 31. Wheat closed U lower to '.i higher compared with Saturday, December $1.144 to $1.14. May $1.194-*,; corn S-tt up, December 774-4.
