The nation's farmers will be free to sell, or feed to animals, all the corn they produce this year. Soon afler the crop reporting board, forecast the crop woulc total JJ561S21.000 bushels, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace announced the AAA would not hold a farmer referendum on the question of re- stricting sales. Supplies will not be larje enough to force such a referen- dum, it wu saia. Wallace esti- mated the supply for the comtnj marketing year at bushels, lakinj into account hU estimate cf a surplus from last year. Had'the indicated supply been in excess of bushels, the farmer poll on quotas would have been mandatory under Ihe crop control law, the secretary said. Had quotas been Invoked, farmers In the commercial corn belt would have been required to store their share ot the surplus or pay a penal ty tax- or 15 cents a bushel. HIGHER LOANS The crop report did Indicate, how- ever, that loans on corn would be mandatory at a rate of about 57 cents a bushel, or 7 cents higher than the rate on last year's crop.

United States and Great Britain have settled their dispute over mid-Pacific Canton and Enderbury Island by means of a novel "working agreement" to use them Jointly as future aviation and communications bases. The question of sovereignty will be held in abey- ance for the time being. Secretary of State Hull said tonight the arrange- ment was somewhat unusus.', and suggested It should set an example for settlement of other international disputes. Other officials emphasized that It was in no way a political agreement between the two democratic governments nor did It contemplate any common measures of national defense. Mere pin points on a Pacific map, Canton and Enderbury were made Important by plans for air lines from the United States and Canada to Aus- tralia and New Zealand. Last March, the Interior department, with Presi- dent Roosevelt's sanction, asserted the claim of the United states to the islands by placing small groups of colonists on each. A group of New Zealanders already had raised the British flag on Canton The claims of the United States and Britain to ownership of the Islands rested chiefly on reports of discovery by whaling ship captains of another era.
