There was considerable hedging pressure in anticipation of a liberal new crop movement Export I sales, however, took the slack out of I the market New rye showed excel- lent quality and was preferred over old crop offerings. Premiums held fairly steady until the close of the week when heavy receipts caused a sharp slump in cash prices, No. 2 rye at Minneapolis late Saturday sedling at 1 to 4c over the September, which closed August 6 at 85%c. The movement of corn continued moderate, primary recei,pts totaling around 2,750,000 bushels The late- ness of" the crop and slow growth made during the week in some sec- tions were the principal strengthen- ing factors Cash offerings were in generally good demand and priced showed an advance of 3 to 4c during the week, No. 3 yellow being quoted at around $1.06 per bushel at Chi- cago and No. 2 yellow at $1.08 to $1.09 atSt Louis. Some rust damage to oats, together with reports of threshing returns shpwing lightweight and rather poor quaDty of an appreciable percentage of the crop caused an upward trend in oats prices Cash prices did not follow the full advance in futures in most markets, but the market was firmer with No. 3 white oats at 44 to 46c at the close of the week at Chicago, an advance of 2 to 3c for the week. No. 3 white at Minneapolis were quoted at 45 to 46%c and at Kansas City at 44 to 47c. There was an improved demand for barley.and this, together with the ad- vance m prices of other coarse grai.ns, :strengthened the market New crop grain from South Dakota and Min- nesota were received at Minneapolis and barley from Iowa was arriving at Chicago and Milwaukee The new crop grain showed good malting qualities and met with an improved demand. Choice to fancy malting types were quoted at Mnneapolis at 76 to 78c, a Milwaukee at 81 to 82c, and at Chicago at 78 to 82c. The flax market at Minneapolis ad- vanced 2c for the week, closing Au- gust 5 at $2.34L Possibility of frost idamage a the late crop bbth in Canada and in the United States to- STATE COLLEGE SENDS EXHIBITS TO LOCAL FAIR Exhibits on Nutrition, land clearing and soils and crops will be shown by the Extension Service of the State College of Washington at the North Pacific Fair, which witl be held at Everett, August 17 to 21. Fifteen exhibits on agricultural and home economics subjects are being sent to about 30 fairs this fall by the Ex- tension Service. The Nutrition exhibit will outline the method used in developing a school nutrition program. Since monthly weighing interest children in health, this exhibit shews the class- room weight records and the class- rom wall charts which are used. It also explains the colored cards which are given to indicate to parents the health condition of their child- ren. The value of fertilizers will be shown in the Soils and Crops exhibiL That use of fertilizers will pay good dividends is indicated by the experience of S. M. Butler of Bur- lington. Where a fertilizer was used the returns from 30 acres .of oats were $795.25. On an unfertilized plot of 20 acres the oats brought $360.40 The Land-clearing exhibit will show a series of slides on methods of using explosives and approved ways of clearing land in this section. OANS TO FASCISTI Mussolini's aggressive measures are expensive, according to the Fas- cist banking confederaUon of Italy, which states that capital in that country at the present time is scarce. This confederation, according to a dispatch in the New York Times, is urging that the Italian government seek another $100,000,000 loan in America. The stock exchanges, it was stated, are at present so depressed that it would be highly profitable for the government to increase its for- eign indebtedness and apply the pro- ceeds to wfthdrawing part of its in- ternational debt Doubtless the ex- pense of maintaining the large army and navy so necessary to Mussolini's aims and policies draws heavily upon the resources of that country. NAVAL CONFERENCE The conference being held at Ge- neva for the limitation of naval arm- aments has not been meeting with much success. American and British ideas are in conflict The former wishes to extend the Washington these craft. It is the opinion of the American administration that the British proposals call for the building of a much larger navy than is neceso sary. Indications are that the con- ference will fail and the British and American governments are exchang- ing views as to the least harmful method of providing for the expected collapse. jT ' ' | he NIFTY SHOPPE M MILLINERY m IV HEMSTITCHING I Ig ART GOODS II! : 114 E.
