Important .factors influencing the 'rend included expanding domestic business, hopes and fears revolving about the AAA, uncertain whether in ;he spring, and a pick-up in woiild '.rade climaxed by the iltalo-Ethiopian war demands. After swinging widely in the first ha^f, prices moved ahead during the third quarter and remained relatively .stable in the final period.

It was later raised to :l /'i of 1 per cent, not because of an increased demand for funds, but because the banks decided it did not pay them to service loans at the lower rate. With marginal requirements pushed to an extremely high point by the securities and exchange commission, cash buying was one of the features of the extended rise in stocks which began in March and continued, with few interruptions, throughout the succeeding months. Index Rises GO Per Cent The start of Italo-Ethiopian hostilities in October came as a mild "shocker," but proved only a brief deterrent. The market also shivered again when an Anglo-Italian crisis threatened over sanctions proposed by the League of Nations to stop the war in Africa. Carrier shares backed and filled rather indefinitely before the New York, New Haven & Hartford and the St. Louis Southwestern filed for reorganization and the Nickle Plate and Denver & Rio Grande Western announced deferment of interest charges. Later gains in car liadings and an upturn in net operating incomes of a umber of the roads brought friendlier Todd's Sidewalk Cafe," in the garage near which she was later to meet her death. She often joked about the cafe, attributing its establishment to the Upton 'Sinclair Epic movement. "I decided that though I might have to accept a pair of shoes for six meals, still practically everybody would have to eat. If barter and exchange became the fashion, I wanted to be in on the ground floor. Had Good Business Mead A gag, but it shows the practical side of Thelma. The cafe proved popular, being on the ocean-front on tiie road between Hollywood and Malibu Beach. Next year they had planned to add a "high- hat cafe" on the top floor with sky- high prices of $7.50 a plate and fancy cocktails running as hgih as $2.50, j Both she and West had separate \ apartments adjoining the cafe. Priester, an insurance man with many clients among film folk, had been friendly with Miss Todd for eight years, and at one time had been rumored engaged to her. It was he who testified that he believed that rumors of a reconciliation between Thelma and her former husband, Di Cieco, were false, and that (he presence of all three at the Trocadero party was merely coincidence. Di Cicco had often told his family after the divorce that Thelma wished to patch it up. To his family on Long Island, Di Cicco had returned by plane : Iho day after his former wife was ! found dead. ] Mystery Man Enters j As to the "dark, foreign-looking man" reported to have been seen by the estranged wife of West (Jewel Carmen* with Miss Todd hours after the time first fixed as that of her death, nothing is known of him. This shadowy figure dovetails with tlie telephone call Mrs. Wallace Ford insists she received from Thelma, saying, "You'll die when you see who I'm bringing to your party." During the weeks just prior to her death. Thelma had been dieting and reducing, though she disliked both. But she was frequently seen, as usual, sitting at the wheel of an expensive open phaeton, her blond hair blowing in the wind, her hand raised in greeting t opassing friends. She loved fine cars and speed as much as she loved pretty clothes. Big Hearted to End Miss Todd had also finished her We extend our hearty greetings 'or a Merry Christmas and Pro's- Jerous New Year.

Fernand de Brinon, friend of M, Laval, wrote in .the .newspaper L'ln-: formation that Turkey's "price for complete 'co-opevatioh is not only abolition pf the freedom of the straits under the .treaty of Lausanne, but .eventually the return of Rhod.es to: Turkey or 'a special regime for that island." Rhodes, de Brinon added, "is important for control of the Ottoman; coast." The island has been under Italian sovereignty since 1923. (The Dardanelles, .famous since Xerxes' army crossed on a bridge of boats to enter Europe in 480 B. C., with the more easterly Bosporos Straits provided the first gateway between Europe and Asia. About 40 miles long and from one to four miles wide, the narrow Dardanelles passage unites the Sea of Marmora and the Aegian sea. Rhodes lies in the latter. Under the treaty of Lausanne the regions to the World war, under a treaty with the great powers, Turkey .could bar the passage of any non-Turkish ship. Its military and naval importance was proved conclusively in 1915 when the Allies attempted, with complete failure, to .force the Dardanelles.) There was a feeling in Official circles that Trance would not be inclined to support the fortification request because it would, necessarily, involve treaty revision. Dardonelles and Bosporus were demilitarized. Prior than 50 per cent in about two months. The subsequent decline, approximate- y 20 per cent, was attributed to the •eeling among world speculators that the U. S.

Tobacco prices displayed relative stability at a substantially higher level ban .the 1934 average, Exports for the irst nine months were 24 per cent under the preceding year.

Their common opponent was the University of California at Los Angeles. U. .C. L. A. ,put the only blot on Stanford's record ,this season with a 7-6 victory on October 12, but was in .turn crushed by the Texas aerial circus, 21-0 on November IT. Simple substraction thus gives the Mustangs a 22-point over the Indians, but statistics of the two games show them much more closely matched. In first downs Stanford holds a net edge of four. S. M.

U. U. C. L. A., however, ran th> ball 114 yards against the Texans and only 75 against Stanford. It is in the passing game where Matty Bell's Methodists show the biggest edge. They completed 17 out of 29 aerials against U. C. L. A. for a total of 183 yards and lost four by interceptions. The more cbnrjtrvati've eleven passes 17 times while losing to U. C. L. A. but .completed only four for 48 yards. Three were intercepted No conclusive indications can be drawn on pass defense, for U. C. L. A. threw only two passes against the Indians, both incomplete. Its passing attack was also fruitles aga.inst S. M. U., although it tried hard. Of 18 passes, only three were completed for 30 yards and four were intercepted. The statistics set forth that Sanford cutkicl^ed U. C. L. A. by 2.3 yards while 'the latter outpunted the Texas eleven by 0,4 yards.
