ago this month that th market crashed and th door slowly swung open to th black depressed decade of th 1930s market is boil Ying again The United States i more prosperous xthan it eve has been Incomes are large and are excite ment ishigh Many people hav extra cash Someare investin money in stocks they intend t keep Others are buying and selling stocks to gamble Twelve own stock in American corporations and the number is increasing value ofthe shares liste on the New York Stock Ex change totals about Billion Many stockholders are wonder ing if there can be anothe erash THE ANSWER IS be but anothe 1928 isnt Last Saturday was the sort o anniversary that many peopl would like to forget but that the country will do well to remeni ber Oct 24 1929 Black day that 650 shares were dumped on th N Y Stock Exchange fay pan icky holders the day a power ful group of bankers made a valiant but vain effort to ha the price the firs of three days that were to sound the knell of the new era the golden era of the 1920s the panic flared anew on Oct 28 1929 when more than 9 mil Jion shares were sold and prices plummeted On Oct 29 the fol lowing day more than 16 mil lion shares poured into the mar ket anothe 1929 debacle was an accomplished fact THE VALUE OF the shares listed on the N Y Stock Ex change plunged from billion on Sept 1 1929 to billion in mid1932 The total loss amount ed to billifln Anyone who is certain there cant be another crash will do well to think about what hap pened last month September saw the sharpest stock market break since 1931 It was a warn ing a reminder that stocks that go up can come down Either of two developments could cause a stock market crash A fresh speculative orgy could trigger the break So could a deep and prolonged business recession THE COUNTRYS chances of preventing a market collapse are only as good as its pros pects for keeping either of these developments from materializ ing The belief that there can be a crash but not another 1929 stems from a widespread con viction that the economy will not again be allowed to become as weak as it was in 1929 that the market will never again be shot through with the specula tive excesses and downright dis honesty that tore it apart in 1929 that there cannot again be the devasting combination of economic and financial weak ness and riotous speculation that shattered the market 30 years ago Nobody thinks the United States has learned how to con trol the business cycle but there is reason to hope that we have learned how to help re cessions from becoming de pressions Ittakes the

Prospects Remain Good By CHUCK WALK GlobeGazette Farm Editor Crop harvest prospects for North Iowa appear pretty good the rains ever stop and the armers are able to get back nto the fields Anyway thats the consensus of seven county extension direc ors in the area In Cerro Gordo County Rob ert Judd says the bean combin ing would probably have been completed last week if it been for the rain AS IT NOW stands the har vest is about 80 per cent com pleted with yields averaging about 25 bushels an acre with some yields ranging up to 40 aushels an acre Although ear corn harvesting had just gotten under way when the Judd believes the yields will run very high with 100 bushel corn not being unusual He does say however that certain areas were fairly hard hit by drought in July and others suffered some hail dam age To the north Bill St Clair in Worth County figures the bean harvest is about 75 cent completed with yields av eraging about 25 bushels to the acre This is somewhat better than the farmers had first thought they would get St Clair says VERY LITTLE ear corn has been picked St Clair continues but there has been some done by pickershelters He estimates that about 40 per cent of the bean ground has been plowed In Franklin County R Pearl Kelsey is looking for the largest corn harvest in the farmers can get into the fields Perfect summer weather con ditions are the reasons for the record estimate While much of North Iowa was experiencing a dry June and July Franklin County had plenty of moisture Little of the corn in Franklin County has been picked yet Kelsey says except for high moisture cornor that which is being picked and dried THE BEAN HARVEST is also behind in the county as a result of the rains in the last week Kelsey thinks about half or two thirds of the harvest is now in with yields running between 25 and 30 bushels an acre To the east Dale Studt Floyd County says the rain halted bean combining with about half of the harvest completed Yields were running about av erage and that isnt very good in Floyd Studt ex plained Some areas near Rudd had very poor bean harvests because of extreme age Studt estimates that about half the corn fields in the coun ty have been opened although only about five to 10 per cent of the total corn harvest has been picked RESULTS FROM 11 entered in a corn yield contest in Floyd County show yields running from 88 to 124 bushels an acre Studt thinks the county wide average will be down slightly fronv last years 71 bushels an acre In Kossuth County Dean Barnes says the bean harvest is pretty well completed although the rain slowed it somewhat The yields were running be tween 25 and 35 bushels to the acre with some as high as 40 The corn harvest was just get ting a good start when the rain started Barnes says the yields are spotty but should average out about the same as last year Fall plowing is progressing rapidly where the bean harvest is done EDGAR DOROW in Mitchell County says that countys bean harvest is about 80 per cent completed Yields are down slightly fromlast year due to a bad drought in the northern part of thecounty One farmer whohad a special fiveacre corn plot told Dorow ie averaged 130
