Chicago, Feb. 10.—Prospects tor
the new wfieat crop are the poorest
in hsitory, B. W. Snow, Chicago
board of trade operator and market
expert, said today. The world will
feel a severe pinch for wheat before
the 1922 crop comps in, according
to present indications, Snow told the
United Press in an exclusive inter
view. This is due to fact that last
years production of wheat in the
United States was relatively small.
Also from limited r.upplies in Ameri
ca's granaries. More wheat was ex
ported to Europe than at any time
in history, the board of trade fig
ures show. The wheat crop in the
southwest is in a critical condition,
said Snow. Lack of snow, together
with wind, sand and dust storms
leads to the' belief that prospects roi
a crop are poorest in history to meet
tlM demand, he said.
Angeles, Feb. 10.—The field
of inspects in the Taylor murder
mystery today narrowed down to
four tone and a mysterious Miss,
whose name has not heretofore been
mentioned in the murder. The for
ces of the law tracking the murderer
of the movie director have been com
bined under a single head to concen
trate on these suspects. District At
torney Thomas Lee Wool wine today
assumed leadership of the various
aencies searching for Taylor's slay
er. All new evidence unearthed will
be placed at his disposal. Mable Nor
mand, entirely recovered from her
nervous breakdown, was to appear
before Woolwine today and tell all
she knows of the dead man and his
past. Miss Normand flatly denied
to the United Press that her visit
to Taylor's apartment on the night
of the murder was for the purpose
of demanding a return of "the bless
ed baby" letters which she had writ
ten to him and which were found
hidden in the toe of a boot in his

taken up tomorrow by a sub-commit

Committeemen said it was not the
intention to rely on any part either
of the interest or principal of the
British or other foreign debts in
ner tion with the bonus. They said
that something around 1350,000,000
a year would take care of the cash
payments to be made over the two
and one-half years period, beginning
January 1, 1923, and that the find
ing of definite and certain sources
from which to obtain this amount
was their immediate concern.
The $350,000,000 estimate, it was
explained, was made on the basis of
figures presented at public hearings

President Harding. The step was

Secretary Denby acted after As

suggestion that work t»e halted im
