Unsettled Condition Marks
Action in All Grain
Futures.
BY HAROLD £. RAINVILLE
United Press Staff Correspondent
CHICAGO, Jan. 12. Wheat
opened irregularly % cent lower to
% cent higher on the Board of
Trade today. There was scattered
selling in July, but the other months
were firm.
Liverpool cables were firmer than
due. Stocks were quiet and also
irregular. Action was slow at the
start with no real pressure.
Cora was unchanged to % cent
lower in a quiet trade. Oats was
dull and unchanged while rye was
% cent lower. Provisions were slow
and steady.
The vague rumors of war between
Japan and Russia boosted wheat
prices rapidly and the denial
dropped them even faster in the last
few minutes of trading Wednesday.
Previously, small buying through
commission houses kept the market
steady, although professional ob
servers were of the opinion that the
market was overbought as prices
were the highest since last August.
This caused profit-taking.
Conditions in the southwest re
main bad and now the Pacific
northwest is reported in poor condi
tion. Liverpool was not as low as
expected, although % to lb cent
lower at mid-afternoon.
Intimations of export business
have been heard in corn for the
last few days, but no actual business
has been reported. Foreign markets
have been advancing.
Selling by elevators and cash in
terests have weakened oats at times,
but the market receives good sup
port on declines.

ROBINSON DONS
ARMOR TO WAR
FOR 1934 VOTES
Indiana Senator Shoves
Way Back in Limelight
for Re-Election Drive.
BY WALKER STONE
Times Stiff Writer
WASHINGTON. Jan. 12. Sen
ator Arthur Robinson, who will be
the only Indiana Republican hold
ing a national elective office after
March 4. is "making medicine"
preparatory to his campaign for
re-election two years hence. And
he is leaning heavily on the drys.
the veterans and the anti-Reds.
The junior senator from Hoosier
land—he will be the senior senator
within two months, when Jim
Watson relinquishes his senate seat
to Frederick Van Nuys—was no
ticably inactive in the senate ses
sion which ended last July.
He seldom engaged in debate on
the senate floor. He acted very
much like a man who didn’t like
his job. and who would welcome
a chance to return to his private
law practice in Indianapolis.
But since the opening rap of the
Vice-President's gavel last Decem
ber 5. Senator Robinson has been
a changed man. He is now very
much like he was when he first
came to the senate —full of vine
gar and ready for a battle.
He’s in Forefront Now
He bustles about from committee
room to committee room, and is
very much in evidence in the sen
ate chamber. He has crowded his
way back onto the front pages of
the nation’s newspapers..
One of the significant things
which Senator Robinson did, fore
shadowing his new era of activity,
w - as to bring back to Washington a
publicity agent—A. A. Mcrcey, for
mer Vincennes newspaper man.
Young Mercey was attached to
the senator's secretarial staff, tak
ing the place made vacant by the
resignation of Mrs. George Comp
ton, wife of the senator’s principal
secretary. In addition to routine
office work, Mercy is functioning
as Senator Robinson’s "contact
man."
Worked in Vincennes
Mercey, in 1929 and 1930, worked
on the Vincmnes Commercial. He
was graduatcii from the University
of Illinois law school in the spring
of 1931, and in July of that year
returned to Vincennes to become
editor of the short-lived Vincennes
Times, a Republican organ, which,
unable to stand the strain of the
depression, folded up last February.
Mcrcey then went to Indianapo
lis. where ie served as publicity di
rector for the Republican state con
tral committee in the recent—and
for the Republicans disastrous—
election campaign.
The senator’s first opportunity for
a front-page break came in connec
tion with his memfceiship on the
joint congressional committee, ap
pointed to investigate the adminis
tration of veterans’ affairs and rec
ommend economics.
Battles for Veterans
At the first committee meeting,
Senator Robison bloomed forth as
“the veterans’ friend.” He indig
nantly declared that the economy
pruning knife should slice not a
nickel off the benefits to any of the
ex-soldiers.
Nor did he long remain on the
defensive. Employing his well
known strategy of attack, the sena
tor turned his wrath on the famous
polar explo’er. Richard E. Byrd,
chairman of the national economy
committee, an organization dedicat
ed to reduction of government ex
penses.
There seems little doubt that
Senator Robinson is molding the
war veterans of Indiana into the
Dackbone of his re-election cam
paign machine.
Another group on which he un
doubtedly will lean heavily is the
Hcosier dry bloc of voters. Sen
ator Robinson is one of the few men
in public life today who still in
sists on a rigid maintenance of the
status quo in the prohibition situa
tion.
He makes no concession what
ever to the rising wet sentiment,
so manifest in Indiana in the recent
election. Senator Robinson is the
darling of the drys.
"Patriots’’ Join Him
And there is another group which
soon may be whooping it up for the
senator—the flag wavers who be
long to such super-patriotic organ
izatioas as the Sons of the Amer
ican Revolution and the Daughters
of the American Revolution
Senator Robinson is a member of
the foreign relations committee,
which soon inevitably must con
sider matters pertaining to the
recognition of Soviet Russia.
The senator hates the Commun
ists with a vcngance. He is opposed
bitterly to recognition.
