Farmers Plan
To Limit Daily
Price Changes
Tentatively Agree To Limit
Fluctuations In Grain
Prices Permanently
WASHINGTON, July 25.-(A')-
Farm administrators and represen-
tatives of grain exchanges today
agreed tentatively to limit daily fluc-
tuations in prices on wheat and other
grains to five cents a bushel as a
permanent policy.
The agreement was reached before
the close of a two-day conference at
which four principal changes in grain
marketing practices were approved.
The first, the daily fluctuation
limit at five cents, to obtain final
approval, must be submitted for ac-
tion to the business conduct commit-
tees of the.Chicago Board of Trade
and exchanges at Minneapolis, Kan-
sas City, Duluth and other points
which ordinarily operate along rules
similar to those at Chicago.
The second provision will be the re-
duction of the holdings of futures
of any trader to a maximum volume,
probably from 2,000,000 to 5,000,000
bushels, the exact figure to be deter-
mined later after exchanges have
surveyed the situation.
The third provision calls for in-
creasing margins of traders. In this
instance, the 'exact figure was left
undetermined and probably none will
be fixed. Rules of the exchanges now
re-quire that brokers insist upon "ade-
quate margins" from traders.
Farm administrators took the po-
sition that higher margins should be
employed to prevent a sudden in-
crease in margin requirements and a
depressing. ffect on prices.
Indemnity Removal
The fourth "reform" demanded by
admilistrators and approved by the
exchange representatives will be the
elimination of trading in both week-
ly and daily indemnities. This has al-
ready been suspended by the Chicago
board and other exchanges as a re-
sult of insistence by farm adminis-
trators and -the grain futures admin-
istration.
Since last Thursday, limits on daily
fluctuations to 8 cents a bushel on
wheat,.5 cents on corn and 3 cents on
oats have been employed under a
special rule of the exchanges.
Administrators informed Peter B.
Carey, president of the Chicago
Board of Trade, that President
Roosevelt regarded eight cents as too
large a margin of fluctuation.
5,000 More Technicians
Quit Jobs In Hollywood
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., July 25.-
()--Motion picture studios endeav-
ored to maintain the production of
entertainment for American and for-
eign movie patrons today as 5,000
more technicians struck.
Union workers left their jobs,
spokesmen said, because the studios
yesterday hired non-union men to re-
place the 865 sound technicians who
struck Saturday midnight.
Producers attributed the trouble
solely to an argument between two
unions as to which had jurisdiction
over 'sound men.
The sound men's organization an-
nounced studio musicians might
strike later today by virtue of their
trade agreement with the Interna-
tional Alliance of Theatrical Stage
Einployes.
elysThe employes who struck at mid-
night Monday because, said Richard
J. Green, union executive, "the pro-
ducers have violated an agreement1
not to employ non-union help in the

event of a strike," were property men,
operative electricians and special ef-
fects men, laboratory workers and
film cutters, studio projectionists,
cameramen and still-camera men.

Picard Says Recall Of
Comstock Is Ridiculous
SAGINAW, Mich., July 25.-(P)-
Declaring that any movement to re-
-all Gov. Comstock "is destined for
'ailure, as t .s ridiculous," Frank A.
Picard, chairman of the State Liquor
Control Commission, has come vig-
orously to the defense of the State's
chief executive.
He said the recall petitions were
eing circulated by "disgruntled so-
-alled Democrats and a few Repub-
icans who want to say the founda-
tion for success a year, from next
November."
"If anyone can find a single dis-
ionest thing that Gov. Comstock has
done," he said in his statement, "it
is his duty to call the attention of
everyone in this State to that malfea-
sance in office. But even the Legis-
lature, in a hostile mood, upheld him
:n all but two vetoes, and one veto,
the chain store bill, was vetoed by the
Governor only because it jeopardized
the sales tax."l

ing, however, in that, like the other
Put-In-Bay caves, its formation was
more complicated, and that, in addi-
tion, the celestite crystals lining its
walls are most unusual."
The group which will go with Pro-
fessor Gould on tomorrow's excursion
will leave here on chartered buses at
7 .a.,m. for Detroit, where the steamer
Put-In-Bay will be boarded for the
trip through the Detroit- River and
Lake Erie to the island. The steamer
will dock at Put-In-Bay at 12:30
p. m.
Tours under the direction of Pro-
fessor Gould will occupy the after-
noon until the boat leaves on the re-
turn trip at 4:15 p. m. to dock again
in Detroit at 8:15 p. m. The party is
expected to be back in Ann Arbor by
10:50 p. m.
Professor Gould said yesterday that
he will be particularly interested in
the course of tomorrow's trip to ex-
amine a number of distinct glacial.
markings which have been found on
Put-In-Bay Island. He believes they
may be of great geological import-
ance.
The excursion tomorrow will be
the second which Professor Gould
has led this summer. The first was
to Niagara Falls July 15 and 16.

Cuba Declares Amnesty
For Political Offenses
HAVANA, July 25.-(t)- A bill
granting amnesty for political of-
fenses since 1927 and described as
a forerunner of a restoration of sus-
pended constitutional guarantees in
Havana province was set for consid-
eration today by the House of rep-
Resentatives after the Senate passed
it, 20 to 4. ,
A message from President Mach-
ado introducing the measure said the
depression and other causes resulted
in the failure of his efforts since his
inauguration in 1925 to promote po-
litical harmony in Cuba. New ten-
dencies toward peace and reason
have now appeared, he asserted, so
he can again ask for amnesty and
the restoration to their civil status
of political prisoners.
