With the exception of, two days, the courageous little fetiowi oft the outside continued to pour in"$eif money in Steadily greater volume than they took out right through the hectic week ending July 11. In that week there were repeated slumps in the market, slumps that recalled IMS. But did the little fellow's panic muscles tighten? Not so that it was especially noticeable. It is true that :after the. earliest sharp break of September 7, the little fellows seemed to feel.some.alanrt. The following day their efforts to get out of the market brought sales to 389,528 shares while they bought in only 387,778. Even on that day there were more "odd lot" orders to buy than to sell, 14,900 to 13,592, While the number of orders is not an exact measure of the number ..of buyers and sellers, it points strongly to the conclusion that the actual;number .of little fellows who bought into the market despite the .break was greater than the number who'sold out, But the following Saturday, September 11, there came another wave of selling among the big buyers in the market that brought a slump as sharp as on the previous Tuesday. Tuesday it had been suggested that the sharp note of Russia to Italy on submarine piracy was. responsible for the drop. By Saturday that theory had been discounted almost wholly yet the bewildering drop came. n ,J8Ut.,did;the littio fellow take fright? -m!, Paul Mutton Winnw irt Muirhead'* Te«t flaut Hutabn, Hope Stw ntwqttfttt carrier, was awarded the priM in) th« "pan bit pennies" contest conducMd by Mudhead'sS cents: to llstoii*.

On that day 9,494 "odd lot' 'orders cam* in .to buy 238,764 shares of stock while orders to sell came from but 7,723 involving 222,621 shares, a neat margin considering that Saturday is only part'of a day so far as the stock market is concerned. Nor did a week-end of. cogitation convince the- little fellows that there was- danger ahead. The following Monday, September • 13, "odd-lot", or. ders flocked into the market 17,998 strong to buy up.457,064 shares, com; pftred with selling Orders of 11,532 involving 337,483 shares. So much sustained buying by th« "little fellow out in the street" must indicate a wealth of public'confidence.

Puppets Used in Language Study More Feeling Can Be Put in Speech, Says University Head EVANSTON, 111. —(/P)— Saying it with puppets is the newest wrinkle in language study. More feeling can be put into "Ich stretch at the cleaners. If you can have one, and only one, evening gown, better pick a black model, simply cut and made of the handsomest fabric you can afford. Get it untrimmed, use it as a background for various accessories, then you, not to mention your loving fircnds, won't tire all too quickly of the sight of you in evening attire. To, begin the season, you might wear heavy gold, chunky jewelry (necklace and a bracelet) with the black gown. Later on, try a short bolero, made entirely of tiny pink velvet pansies, and a large pink pansy in your hair. A wide red girdle of shirred velvet and scarlet slippers might be a third good idea. Use your imagination in selecting accessories to make the dress look different each time you wear it. liebe dich," says a professor at Northwestern university, if the student of German is manipulating his puppet in a love scene at the same time. • Puppets Inspired Goethe So says Professor C. O. Arndt, on the school of education faculty,-whose high school students take to the new method of studying German with enthusiasm. . "I tell them puppets are very adaptable because they can speak any language," Prof. Arnde explains. "Goethe was interested in puppets from the time his grandmother brought him some when he was six. She used them to act out stories from the Old'Testa- ment. Later Goethe wrote that this stirred his imaginaion, and hisorians claim the first performance of the Faust legend were produced with puppets." Speak With Feeling So, Prof. Arndt's pupils try it too. When Gretchcn plucks daisy, petals before young Faust's eyes, murmuring "He love me, he loves me not," it takes more than an academic understanding of German to animate the.puppets with the proper intensity. ( "The student propqcts himself into the thought world of the author when ho uses puppets," says Dr. Arndt. "Tliis he would not do if he. were merely reading the lines." The fiuolution, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," is from Thomas Hayncs Bayly's "Isle of Beauty." New Fall Accessories for Your 1937 Wardrobe SHIRTS Handsome shirts in the newest full patterns.
