IOWA MAN WINS HUSKING TITLE FRED STANEK, OF FORT DODGE, HUSKS 24 BUSHELS IN HOUR AND ONE-HALF Fred Stanek, of Fort Dodge, won the corn husking championship ot the mlddlewe6t Monday. The contest between the two leading huskers of Iowa, Indiana and Nebraska was hold on the George H. Barues farm near Alleman, twenty miles north of Des Moines. Stanek husked 1,705 pounds, or approximately twenty-four bushels in the hour and thirty minute contest. It was originally planned to have contestants husk one hour and twenty minutes in both the morning and afternoon. This plan was changed an I account of cold weather. This makes Stanek unqualified champion of the year in Iowa, as he bested tho record of 1,610 pounds in one hour and twenty minutes made by Ben Grlmmlus, Jr., of Grundy Center, in the state contest Saturday, by a fraction. Grlmmlus placed fourth yesterday. Stanek was a newcomer In championship husking circles. He qualified just in time to enter Saturday's contest, in which he placed second, winning $50. He husked 1,411 pounds in the shorter period Saturday. Yes-t'erday's contest gives him tho $100 prize, the only prize of the day. The contest is held by Wallaces* Farmer. The record of 1923, made by John Uickelman, of Mount Hammlll, Leo county, Iowa, still stands. Rlckelman husked thirty-three bushels of corn in one hour and twonty minutes last year, but was eliminated for honors able. ' Warnings might well be against shipping hogs averaging �j*> der 180 pounds in weight, aa they aire sure to encounter sharp discrimination. Near Panic Prices Pigs are little above panic prlcee. Very choice stock and killing pigs aafr selling around $4.60 and $5.00,   the plain to fair kinds down arooae> $3.60 and $4.00. Packers are taking good, light lights at around $7>00- aa* $7.25, while paying upward to arena* $8.60 and $8.76 for butcaerw^ga*. grades. Good fat sows have tofcee selling up to $8.60, or practically fl.6# above good lights and $3.60 above the best pigs available. This relationship of values cannot long endure. Kei only will the country soon run out of underweight pigs, but buyers will-show increasing eagerness to hay these bargain hogs as supplies of underweights commence to dwindle aruli the spread in prices will then narrow down. The narrowing of the spread) is expected to lead to lights advancing rather than to heavies declining, as it has been demonstrated the present week in the face of contlmre* enormous marketing that good heav-. les are regarded worth current prices. Should Hold Back Tho hlBtory of the trado shows thai average hogs prices year after year reached their low points between November 16 and December 16. There is no reason to believe that the low time of tho present season will come later than normal, as marketing this-season has been well ahead of that of other years. The near approach ef tho season of the year when advances may be expected should serve to nerve up the country to hold back hogs that lack weight. Hogs averaging 160 pounds need not be held long before attaining a weight of 200 pounds.
