record for twenty-fire miles.
Rickenbacher worked all day yes
terday on his motor. He tore the
engine down, got out the sandpaper
and the emory, and toiled for several
hours. Late yesterday afternoon he
had the motor all assembled again
and today he will put on the track for
a few brief tests before making his
attempt to lower the record Sunday.

Eddie will try to break is now held

WHEAT AND CORN
Decrease is Due to Large Ex
tent in Eeduction of the
Acreage Planted. -
GAIN IS MADE IN JUNE
Washington, July 7. -Growing con
ditions during June improved the
prospects of the wheat and oats
crops. The Department of Agricul
ture in its July crop report today
forecast the combined crop of winter
and spring wheat at 759,000,000
battels, which- is 44,000,000 bushels
more , than predicted last month, and
increased the estimate of the final
yield of oats to 1,317,000,000 bushels,
or 62,000,000 bushels more than fore
cast in June. ,
A slight increase in the area plant
ed to corn this year was reported,
and a crop of 2,866,000,000 bushels,
which with favorable conditions might
exceed last year's 3,055,000,000 bushel
record crop, was forecast. The con
dition of corn was reported as slightly
better than last year on July 1, but
was about 2 per cent below the
ten-year average condition for July 1.
Some other crops also will be
smaller than they were last. year.
That is due principally 'to a Reduction
in acreage. Winter wheat shows a
decrease of 18.6 per cent in acreage,
spring wheat, a reduction of 8.2 per
cent; oats less than 1 per cent; barley,
an increase of 4.9 per cent, and rye,
a decrease of 4.4 per cent
