While Food Prices Soar
CHICAGO, July 2.-(P)---A wide-
spread damper on the crop consum-
ing drought was forecast by the
Weather Bureau today as various au-
thorities estimated its cost to date at
Rainfall was predicted for the Ohio
Valley, the Southeastern states and
parts of Minnesota and North Da-
kota-the latter in the heart of the
live state belt including South Da-
kota, Wyoming and Montana where
the dry spell has been characterized
as the "worst in history."
The Bureau said precipitation this
week had relieved the seriousness of
the situation in all the affected states
except the Dakotas, Montana, and al-
Relief Plans Pushed
With' an estimated 100,000 North-
west farm families needing subsis-
tence aid, President Roosevelt's spe-
cial drought committee in Washing-
ton made plans to push the genera
relief program into definite form by
next week. On the drought front in
five Northwestern states, WPA ad-
ministrators hurried machinery to
set 50,000 men to work building con-
servation dams, roads and other
public projects to provide them with
At Duluth, Secretary of Agriculture
Henry Wallace, announced he had
authorized government purchasing
and processing of cattle forced off
North Central ranges by failure of
Cattle Taken Off Ranges
Up to a million head of livestock
will be taken off producers hands
under the emergency plan, he said.
But, deterioration of crops con-
tinued today and reports of the
drought's spread into neighboring
prairie provinces of Canada electri-
fied wheat markets over the world.
Wheat jumped above the dollar mark
here with a five cent bulge-the limit
allowed for a day. The gain brought
to 15 cents the total advance since
the disaster to spring wheat first~ be-
came apparent a month ago. Decem-
ber wheat sold at $1.03 here. Quo-
tations for other commodities joined
Rain Moves Eastward
As the rain center, which brought
floods causing at least 21 South Texas
deaths and more than $1,000,000 in
crop and property losses, moved East-
ward over parched Dixie, drought
damage in the Southeastern states
was figured at $150,000,000.
To this, Chicago statisticians add-
ed at least $100,000,000 for America's
spring wheat belt alone and asserted
Canadian drought losses would add
possibly' as much as $75,000,000.
Northwest reports told of train-
loads of stock being rushed from
withered prairies. At Rapid City, S.
D., observers said the livestock ex-
odus equalled that of the 1934

tripled down the right field foul line
and scored on Gehringer's infield out
to tie the score.
Whithead's wildness aided the Tig-
ers to score what proved to be the
winning runs, in the fifth. Simmons
beat out a slow roller to Dykes, and
the Chicago pitcher uncorked a wild
pitch and then issued passes to Owen
and Hayworth, filling the bases with
none out. Rowe's single scored Sim-
~mons. Burns hit a short fly to
Kreevich. Owen held third on this
play and scored as Rogell flied deep
to Haas. Gehringer ended the in-
ning by striking out-.
This would have been enough runs
to win, behind Rowe's hurling, but the
Tigers added three more in the
eighth and another in the ninth.
Still leading the Washington Sen-
ators by a single percentage point,
the Tigers entrained for St. Louis
\tonight to open a four game series
with the tail-end Browns. Roxie
Lawson was nominated to oppose Les
Tietje in the opener tomorrow.

tion." Police said those arrested
would spend the night in jail and be
held for the disposition of the federal
