Jilenholz Reports Increase in 16
tif 30 Commodity Prices
.Collected for Month
Prices received by North Dakota
farmers on April IS were slightly
higher than those received a month
earlier, according to the farm price
report Issued by Ben Kienholz, feder
al agricultural statistician. Of 30
commodity prices collected, 16 in
creased, six made no change, and
eight declined during the 30-day per
All classes of grain made advances
of from one to eight cents per bushel.
Spring wheat jumped from 91c to 99c
per bushel which netted a 6c per
bushel increase in the price of all
•wheat. Feed grains made small
changes in price. Hay and seed prices
either remained unchanged or de
clined slightly, with the single excep
tion of alfalfa hay which netted an
increase of 80c per ton. With improv
ed prospects of range and pasture
feed, it is most likely that hay prices
have reached their peak for the year.
All classes of meat animals, live
stock, poultry, and livestock and poul
try produce show minor changes in
price. Although the price of hogs,
beef cattle, sheep, lambs and wool
declined slightly, the price of veal
calves, milk cows, chickens, butter,
butterfat and eggs advanced.
The price of horses, turkeys and
retail milk made no change. The small
population of milk cows and chick
ens is an important factor effecting
the advance in the price of milk cows
and chickens and their products.

Badlands Park Project
Going Forward Rapidly
CCC Soon to Begin Construc
tion of Lodges and Cabins in
New State Playground
In the western section of North
Dakota, one of the greatest play
grounds in the state is taking form
—Theodore Roosevelt regional park.
When finally completed, the giant
park—it sprawls over more than 46,
000 acres—will provide recreation and
places for outdoor activity to thou
sands of persons, Robert Byrne, state
project manager, said Friday.
Civilian Conservation Corps work
men are moving into their spring and
summer labors, beautifying the miles
of roads, constructing wayside rest
lng spots and marking historical
places of interest, Byrne said.
Through the long winter months,
more than 600 men have been labor
ing in the region, constructing roads
and bridges for the most part, and
carving motor trails through the brush
of the territory.
Actually Two Parks
Actually two parks will exist when
the work is completed—separated by
40-mlle strip.
Soon it is hoped to start on the
more ambitious part of the park pro
gram—the construction of lodges and
cabins in the two areas.
Fireplaces and grills will greet the
tourist-visitor to the various camp
ing spots being laid out in the park
picnic units are being built in
each of the areas, while from various
lofty spots In the region, 10 lookout
houses will be constructed.
Much like the system followed in
Yellowstone National park, lodges
will be constructed in back of the
areas, about which will nestle the
cabins to house visitors who do not
desire to sleep in tents.
In the northern area, a native
stone and log lodge, containing a
great lounging room, a kitchen and
dining room, will rise probably near
Arnegard, 25 miles southwest of Wat
ford City.
Lodge at Peaceful Valley
In the southern section, near the
site of Peaceful Valley ranch and not
far from Medora, will be built a simi
lar lodge.
Each of the groups of 10 cabins to
be constructed in each unit of the
park will contain a living room,
kitchen and bathroom. The cabins
will be constructed of logs, hand
hewn, while a fireplace will be con
structed in each living room. "Wild
landscaping will be followed around
each cabin.
Eventually, it is proposed to rent
the cabins to tourists and other vis
itors to the park, although Byrne said
it will be some time before the project
reaches this point.
It is possible, Byrne said, that
should sufficient funds be obtained,
the work will continue for three
years, although the park will reach a
primary completion point before that
The park stretches through Billings
county into McKensle county, in the
northern Bad Lands territory.

Historic Pimlico Race
Baltimore, May 10—(/P)—Once again
the racing clans are gathering, this
time at historic Pimlico for the forty
fifth running of the Preakness. But
unlike a week ago at Churchill
Downs, when a strapping filly, Nellie
Flag, was the "hot tip" on every cor

stretch running son of Gallant Fox
from William Woodward's Belalr
stud, which showed a muddy pair of
heels to the turf's greatest in the
Kentucky Derby.
Barring an unfavorable turn in the
weather, some 35,000 fans are expect

President Avoids Use of Word
'Bonus* in Message to Ve
terans' Committee
Washington, May 10.——Delay
ing the final struggle until next week,
bonus leaders plunged Friday into a
week-end effort to marshal every
ounce of their strength in a last
minute effort to save the Patman new
currency bill from defeat.
Methods that proved so potent in
defeating the world court protocols
were called into play as veterans'
leaders sought to deluge the capltol
and the White House with a million
or more telegrams from supporters.
President Roosevelt made no pro
nouncement, though he conferred
with financial advisers in what was
generally regarded as a move to mar
shal statistics for a veto on the
$2,000,000,000 bill. He did not
mention the word "bonus" in a greet
ing he sent Thursday night to St.
Louis, where the convention commit
tee for the forthcoming 1936 Amer
ican Legion conclave was in session.
'War veterans are and should be
interested in the welfare of the coun
try as a whole," he said. "Our con
stant objective U to care for the dis
abled, the sick and destitute. Amer
ican Legionnaires and the veterans of
all wars support this national policy."
In some quarters this was regarded
as echoing the idea the president ex
pressed at koanoke, Va., some time
ago in an address generally inter
preted as a stand against full and Im
mediate payment of the bonus.
The inflationary bill, which has
passed both houses of congress, re
mained bottled up in the senate while
its backers sought support. Private
senate polls had indicated that a veto
would be sustained, possibly by as
many as five or six votes.
Senator Thomas (Dem., Okla.) Pat
manlte leader whose motion for a re
consideration keeps the bill in the
senate, did not plan to release it for
Its journey to the White House until
next week.

Joliet, 111., May 10.—OP)—The state
satisfied its demand of a life for a
life Friday with the electrocution of
three men who participated in the
killing of three others during an at
tempted bank robbery.
Technically the switch was thrown
in the old state penitentiary only to
expiate the murder of J. Charles
Bundy, cashier at the Lenore, 111.,
state bank, because the three gun
men who survived the fight which
preceded their capture were not tried
for the deaths of two others.
Those electrocuted within a 19
mlnute span shortly after 1 a. m.
(Central Standard Time) Friday were
Fred Gerner, 27, and Arthur Thielen,
42, both of Rockford, 111., and John
Hauff, 32, Chicago.
All went to the chair seemingly
calm and gave their last breath to
pleas for forgiveness from and
their victims' survivors.
Farmer Delegation to
Plead Cause of AAA
Des Moines, May 10.—(#5—A large
delegation of dirt farmers from the

The main purpose of the caravan
Is to pull for the struggling AAA
amendments which would give Secre
tary Wallace greater powers in ad
ministering the farm program.

Officials had promised that blanks,

be ready Thursday. But late in the
day word came from the office of
Frank C. Walker, head of the appli

eral days" before the blanks were
issued. Walker's aides said that some
of the government agencies which
will participate in execution of the

pared and made necessary a revision.
Hopkins told reporters Thursday
that the progress division of the work

For Stoll Kidnaper
Washington, May 10.—/P)—Justice
department agents Friday pressed
their seven-month hunt for Thomas
H. Robinson, Jr., alleged kidnaper,
despite police rumors that Robinson
is dead.
The chief basis for this theory
among officers is that none of the
$50,000 ransom paid to Robinson late
in 1934 has bMn found, with the ex
ception of $500 ne Is said to have given
his wife in Indianapolis. She accom
