Dry, Hot W ave Brings Spotted Conditions Into Harvest Outlook MONTANA HAEDIT AND BOTH DAKOTAS REPORT BIG DAMAGE Cry All Over Northwest Is for Rain to Relieve Deterio- ration of Grains SOME COUNTIES LOOK FINE Others Show Premature Ripen ing, Weeds, Rust; Farmers Cutting Down on Labor More than a week of excessively hot temperatures have caused permanent injury to much of the wheat in the northwest and prospects for a heavy —or even normal—crops have faded rapidly recently, the Farmers Union Terminal association weekly report says. “July is the critical month for wheat in the Northwest,” the review says. “Prospects prior to the Fourth were generally the best in years, but exceptionally favorable weather now will be necessary if damage which al ready has resulted is to be even partly recovered. “The heat has caused heavier dam age in South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana than in Minnesota. Crop conditions in Minnesota have been vastly improved in the past 10 days, as corn is of far greater impor tance in that state than Wheat. Cor respondents who have examined wheat fields around Montevideo, Redwood Falls, Olivia, Willmar, Milan, Orton vhle, Wheaton and in the upper Red river vaUey report no more rust dam age than is normal and little or no blaltk rust. Rye is being cut in south ern North Dakota and Minnesota and barley is fast ripening. ‘Wheat and all grains are fine almost without ex ception in Minnesota,’ one crop expert wired. Immediate Rain Needed “However, the heat has prematurely ripened wheat in many parts of North Dakota and South Dakota. Unless there is immediate rainfall and more moderate temperatures, little improvement can be expected. The heat has produced a rapid growth of straw and brought about conditions which make wheat susceptible to in cubation of rust spores. Weeds also will play an important part in wheat yields in many sections. “Montana has been hit probably more by the heat than any state. The Montana department of agriculture reports that crops have deteriorated in the past 10 days to the extent that prospects are now that the yield will be less than the unsatisfactory crop of 1929, with some of the fields ‘too far gone for recovery.’ A telegram from Culbertson, Mont., says that ‘intense hot weather has blistered the wheat in northwestern Montana. Much of the wheat is blighted. Some crinkle joint is reported. Rain is badly needed to help crops.' “Until the excessive heat wave, grains in North Dakota had made favorable progress. Flax is in bloom, but the crop is uneven. Rains are generally needed. Spring wheat, barley and speltz are headed out in most parts of the state. Rains in Walsh, Ramsey, Cavalier and Towner counties had improved prospects prior to the heat wave. Reports from Pierce and Benson counties are quite favorable. In south central North Dakota the outlook is good, especially in Ransom, Dickey and La Momre counties. Crops in Grand Forks county are spotted. Hope Still Persists “While the heat wave has caused pessimism to replace optimism in crop reports generally, there is still hope that favorable weather may relieve the situation and that ’clouds' may paint a brighter picture than has the sunshine of the past 10 days. “While there has not been an abundance of moisture at any time this year in the northwest, except in scattered districts, there had been quite general rains prior to the wave of 100-degree temperatures and grains sometimes stage a comeback after farmers and crop experts have decided that there is little hope. “In nearly all districts there is a surplus of labor. Indications now are that very little extra help will be em ployed on farms, due to the low prices for grains and the desire of farmers to reduce expenses to the minimum. The use of combines also will decrease the call for outside labor.” AT THE MOVIES I CAPITOL THEATRE Something new in the way of a mystery melodrama arrives on the talking screen of the Capitol Theatre tonight with the presentation of "Midnight Mystery," the new Radio Pictures production featuring Betty Compson and Lowell Sherman. Here is a thriller with a punch of novelty that makes it doubly interesting. Splendid playing by a star cast, smooth direction and a story that builds to stirring climaxes make “Midnight Mystery" an evening’s genuine entertainment. The story has been adapted from the stage success, “Hawk Island," and Is concerned with an oddly assorted set of guests at a house party in a castle on a storm-beaten island off the Maine coast. Every hit of action In the film is encompassed within less than a twelve-hour period, with the major part of the story running through a night of electrifying ad venture. Based on the “murder” of a “dum my" which later proves to be more tragically real than the joker sup posed# the picture offers the novel •ogle of letting the audience in on gbe secret before the characters themselves suspect what has tran spired. Even so, the element of mys maintained to the end. PARAMOUNT THEATRE Charles Buggies, the well known gomedian of the stage and screen, ME was a hilarious newspaper re porter in both "Gentlemen of the !»•** and "Roadhouse Nights," con tinues in this joyous state in Para meoHtfc tIT-^f l H"g dramatisation of | Three ‘Junk’ Men on World Voyage Chinese junk. An English crew. And a voyage around the world . . That’s the strange adventure which began in Hong Kong, China, the other day, when, as pictured above, the junk “Maskee” set sail for the Philippines. It was to be the first leg of a globe-circling trip undertaken by J. L. Stephen son, the captain (top), S. C. Banks (center) and J. C. Grenham (bottom). They expect to cover 150 miles a day in the antiquated craft, visiting prin cipal sea ports on every continent. Katherine Brush’s best selling novel, “Young Man of Manhattan.’’ In “Young Man of Manhattan,” Ruggles shares honors with Claudette Colbert, the heroine of "The Lady Lies,” and Norman Foster, the popu lar star of the legitimate stage now appearing in the Broadway hit, “June Moon.” “Young Man of Manhattan” Is a poignant, exciting, often humorous story of modem marriage, with the world of sports as its colorful back ground. The picture’s action centers about Norman Foster, a sports writer, and Claudette Colbert, his charming wife who is a special feature writer for the magazines. Their efforts to maintain a modern home while each remains independent of the other and the subsequent developments that occur when the “other” woman makes her appearance on the scene, bring to the screen many highly dramatic, suspense - filled, moments, that carry this picture to its compelling, well-ex ecuted climax. And with Charles Rug gles to relieve the dramatic tension, “Young Man of Manhattan” emerges as one of the most entertaining pic tures of the season. Monta Bell directed “Young Man of Manhattan,” which comes to the Paramount Theatre Friday, for a two day engagement. 6. N. D. A. Offers Cash Prizes on Seed Grains Fargo, N.

BLAKESLEE (Associated Press Science Editor) Ann Arbor, Mich., July 16.— (/P) Gymnasium athletics are only a minor factor in development of student health at the University of Michigan. Medical examinations show an Im provement in the health oi por cent of the seniors as compared with their freshman years. This result is attributed to the col lege health department, which for 17 years has been teaching moderation and attention to diet, sleep, and men tal poise, and easily available medical care, in short, to an all around care of health. Athletics are only Incidental, and one form of them, compulsory gym nasium work, long a cornerstone of supposed collegiate health, h&s been found of doubtful usefulness. Enforced gymnasium training as a health measure was exploded by stu dies of its results upon two groups of freshmen. One took two hours a week, and the other group was ex cused. The students taking the gymnasium work developed more colds, more acute bronchitis, more boils and local in fections, more time spent In hospital and Infirmary and more accidents. Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, head of the college health department, says: “A critical study of these data would probably indicate that there is no significant difference to be deter mined In the sickness experience of those taking the required two hour gymnasium work and those excused. At any rate it is clear that there Is no appreciable advantage to those taking gymnasium as compared to the excused group, as judged by the fre quency of the usual recognized con ditions of sickness. “Much common sense experience all seems to validate the idea that phy sical exercise particularly in out of door conditions is definitely bene ficial to personal health.” North Dakota Files Protest on Merger Washington, July 18.— (/P) —North Dakota’s railroad commission today joined Minnesota in opposing the pro posed merger of the Great Northern and the Northern Pacific railroads.
