Heavy liquidation had sliced ered with tar paper under white asbestos shingles, and they are equipped with plumbing and a sprinkler system for fire control. They will be placed on concrete foundations and will have con- crete floors. Oscar Parker, East Central bus- iness1 manager, and Hugh Morris, head of industrial arts, have just returned from Frederick, where they inspected the buildings. Parker says that they are very similar in appearance to the vet- erans' housing units now being erected on the lower campus. The three buildings will be used to house the industrial arts shops. Now the college will be able to use thousands of dollars worth of new shop equipment that has been stored because prior to this time there has been no place to install it.

Dealers, consumers and trade associations have joined1 hands in efforts to keep prices down. The prices of all livestock shot up, despite an avalanche of re- ceipts, and record highs were es- tablished in so-.r.e markets. Both cattle and hog prices, however, experienced downward trends when offerings were the heaviest. In the commodity markets, the price of soybeans, lard and flax also went rjp. Many Commodities Drop However, a long list of com- modities dropped i'n price, in- cluding poultry, eggs, butter, wheat and cotton. Trade sources attributed the butter drop to the removal of ceilings on other fats and oils. Reports of buyers resistance to higher meat prices came from many cities. In some instances, resistance was building up basement Hall. quarters in The new buildings will'be ship- ped to Ada in the near future and will be erected on the strip of campus between the presi- dent's home and the Mayhue ten- nis courts.

Managers of the New York ex- change said only that the closing "would best serve the interests of the public and the exchange."

Jr., in a statement referring to the "con- i'-sion and uncertainty" of recent said, ''The rumor afloat that certain people are in financial difficulty is, to our mind, greatly exaggerated, all contracts in our clearing house are margined up to our full requirements." The senator, describing the drop as a "bear c.-.a.-ged that the exchanges. branch houses, customers' and clients'' had planned "to drive cotton prices down to the lowest possible point." New York exchange managers corned any such involvement and should Thomas present "any tangible evidence" it would in- vestigate and take any remedial artion required.
