Cattle Receipts were estimated at about
8,100 head today, but, as usual, a grfod
share of the arrivals were so late getting in
that the size of the receipts was problem
atic. The three days' supply. 26,198 head,
has been about 4,2,00 heavier than the first
half of last week and 10,000 heavier than
a year ago. Th market opened alow, with
both local packers and shipping buyers pay
ing fully steady prices for desirable handy
weight beeves and bidding somewhat lower
on the heavy cattle aa well as on the ordi
nary light kinds. Cow stuff also ruled alow
and lower and th general market for
killing stock Is all of 26040c lower than It
waa a week ago. Stock er and feeder

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISIONS.
Prospects of No Pressure of Foodstuffs on
Market Hardens Corn.
Chicago, Feb. e; Assertions that for the
remainder of this season no prospect ex
isted of a pressure of foodstuffs on th
anAA tnditf tn harden nrlr.es of
corn. Prices averaged slightly higher
tnrougnout in session, ana diobou
at a shade to c net advance, with March
$1.274 and May $1.25H, Oats finished V4o
to c to 0!4c down and provisions off
25c to 37c. ' v
According to a leading authority, the
fact that the number of animals on farms
showed an Increase of more than eight
million, whereas a decrease of nearly five
million had been expeeted, has forced a
big reduction In estimates of amount of
corn likely to be obtainable from producer.
In addition, shortage of rootlv power was
said to be likely to keep th crop move
ment down to small proportions. Decided
Improvement In th weather; however, and
a likelihood that mild temperatures would
prevail for several days operated to check
any material advance.
Oat underwent a setback In valuo owing
largely to suggestions of ths possibility of
a maximum price being established. Talk
of such action seemed to b based chiefly
on th stoppage of speculative trading In
coffee. ,. . ,
Forecasts of larger receipts oi nogs senv
provisions sharply down grade. Stock yard
houses were sellers.

Furnishes Honor Man in Drive
to' Obtain Workers- in Ship
Yard Campaign; Need for
Speed Is Shown.
(From a Staff Cor.poniient.)
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 6. (Special.) j
Nebraska has the honor of furnishing
the honor man in the drive for United
Statei shipyard volunteer!. K. H.I
Walker, of Scottsbluff is the man, his
application being first to reach the
authorities at Washington, according
to word received by the Nebraska
State Council of Defense today.
Simultaneously with the announce
ment of the opening of the drive to
secure .250,000 volunteers to aid in the.
construction of Uncle Sam's merchant
marine, comes the word that the Ne
braska Council of Defense is expected
to direct the campaign for volunteers
in this state. Nebraska's apportion
ment of the vast industrial army of
250,000 skilled artisans which is to be
mobilized to carry out Uncle Sam's
ship building program, is 2,500 men.
This state will be expected to enroll
2,500 skilled workers, ready when the
time comes, to work in Uncle Sam's
How to Win War Early.
Vice chairman Coupland, pointing
out that Nebraska enjoys the dis
tinction of furnishing the first vol
unteer, is confident the Cornhuskers
will "go over the top" in character
istic stvle and more than the quota
of 2.5(H) will be enrolled!
"If you would win the war early," de
clares Charles Piez, general manager
of the Emergency Fleet corporation,
in a telegram to vice chairman Coup
land today, "the work of enrolling
250,000 skilled workmen for the
United States shipyard volunteers is
of paramount importance. On earnest
labor depends the early construction
of our merchant fleet.
"Within 60 days three huge govern
ment yards will be complete and SQon
thereafter more than 60,000 workmen
will be required to furnish for them
the three-eight hours shifts necessary
if these yards are to turn o,ut ships
according to schedule.
Need to Speed Up.
"The shipping board how has 716
shipways, of which 302'are for wooden
ships and 414 are for steel construc
tion. The yards in i which they are
