E SECRETARY HOUSTON DECLARES CREDIT WILL NOT BF GRANT ED A SMEANS OE PRESERV* IMG HI«H PRIOSH. Washington, D. C., Sept. 24.— Gradual return to the law of supply and demand as governing influence over prices and the end of "war charges" for necessary commodities was predicted today by government officials in explaining the govern ment's attitude on credit extensions. Secretary Houston declared re quests for credit could not be lis tened to where such aid might mean preservation of high prices. He add ed that many persons complaining of what they term the restrictive po licies of the federal reserve board wish credit to enable them to hold their commodities until market con ditions produce higher prices. Mr. Houston said the government could not lend its aid under such circum» stances without becoming a party to a conspiracy against the consumers. Credit for marketing of commod ities may be had from local banks, Governor Harding, of the board, has told representatives of the cotton and wool growers, stockmen and farm as sociations who have soifght the in fluence of the board for the exten sion of credit. Disposal of their stocks as the demand will absorb them, he said, will enable producers to liquidate their holdings and ease a falling market. Prices on articles which have been under government control have brok en sharply, according to Howard E. Figg, special assistant to the attor ney general in charge of the cam paign to lower living costs, who cited statements of the bureau of labor sta tistics as substantiating his claim. For the two years, Mr. Flgg said, the distribution of food and clothing will be governed by supply and demand without the need for government supervision of prices. Merchants, he declared, are realizing prices must meet the demand for their gootir and that the return to nearly normal or pre-war conditions is not for dl»- Gen.

A little ex tra effort now may save replanting the corn in the spring, suggests A. L. Ford, extension entomologist at State college. Injurious cutworms hatch from eggs laid by the ordinary cutwortn moths, usually in September. The worms become half grown before winter, when they go deeper in the soil for hibernation. In the spring they again come to the surface and resume feeding. This is the stage that is so injurious to young corn. Cutworm moths always lay their eggs in grassy, weedy places during the early fall. Should the vegetation be removed from this land during this early fall laying period, the moths will hunt for favorable places to deposit their eggs efsewhere, the result being that the land free from vegetation will be practically free from cutworms the following spring. Every farmer who has decided on his corn land for next spring is urged tt early fall plow this land if pos sible. If the vegetation on the land in question can be destroyed- and the land kept bare during the early fall by disking, it will serve just as well. Next spring's corn land treated in this manner this fall will be practic ally free from cutworm injury in the •Prll®^ Farmer Run Over By Own Tractor la., Sept. 24.—Leo Muel ler, ^0, son of Peter Mueller, a far mer residing east of here, is at the Sacred Heart hospital in a critical condition as the result of injuries re ceived at his farm when he was run over by a heavy tractor.

As he fell he grabbed the gear control lever and started the tractor off in reverse. The tractor started off on his left side of his body. The lugs on the wheels inflicted terrible gash es in his flesh. He managed to keep his head clear of the wheel. He managed to crawl to the farm house and was brought to Le Mara. Besides the flesh wounds four ribs were crushed and internal injuries are feared, although the attexuUqg physicians believe he will recover.

The wool market has been in a dormant con dition since early May, but local buy ers were offering as much as 45 cents per pound in Iowa for good .wool, in the country, a coukle of weeks ago. This is 10 to 15 cents per pound more than was offered in July and the first part of August. The various state associations that have pools in Chicago are in no hurry to sell as the market seems to be a waiting one and a national federation is in process of formation, which will assist the selling agencies in stabilizing the market. Wool growers shipping wool by local freight should be careful to put their name and address, not only on shipping tags, but upon the sacks of wool, with lamp black. There are a few sacks of wool in Chicago now without a trace of the owner. Anyone having such a lot and not having heard from it after It v has been out 30 days should either write the consignee or the secretary of the South Dakota Sheep and Wool Grow ers' association at Brookings.. Every thing will then be done to prove identity of the wool and get it re leased lo the proper parties, and stop demurrage.
