Stocks wrestled with profit takers in today's market but casualities were minor in most cases and a side assortment of favorites managed to post top figures for the year or longer. Breadth and activity continued during the greater part of the proceedings although there were frequent slow - downs after a speedy start. There was much switching from recently soaring rails and industrials to long - backward utilities and the latter generally were in the forward van. While gains were well distributed .. near the close, a number of recoveries appearing in the final hour, small losses were plentiful. Transfers were around 1,800,000 shares. Exceptionally encouraging war news, investment demand and inflation ideas still were trend props but many customers inclined to stand aside because' of the feeling that the, length advance was due for a technical correction.

Wladyslaw Sikorski, prime minister of the Polish government in- exile, declared in a London address today that Poles would unite to "the" last man" to resist any postwar claims from any quarter "which aim at the sovereignty and integrity of Poland." The statement was made at a luncheon of the City Livery club, after Sikorski declared Polish soldiers had "shown their medal by fighting at the side of Great Britain." He said losses since the battle of Britain had been "very considerable." Executions and massacres his country is experiencing are "terrible," Sikorski said, "for the Polish nation is carrying on an unflinching underground struggle against the invader." "In view of all this," he continued, "I solemnly wish to state here, and with great emphasis, that if at the conclusion of the war our rights are not respected and our long and passionate devotion to freedom taken into consideration, every Pole, irrespective of religious or political creed, will unit to the last man to resist any claims which aim at the sovereignty and integrity of our country, from whatever quarter they might je raised." Earlier in the speech, General Outcome of Old Quarrel Jonesboro, March 30 — W — A thrcc-months-old quarrel that started with the discharge of a young woman employe was blamed by Fred Mathes, 07, Jonesboro Compress manager, for the slaying yesterday of the Compress Company president. James E. Parr. 61, prominent business man and close personal friend of Senator Haltie W. Caraway. Prosecutor Marcus Fictz filed a charge ot first degree murder against Mathes last night and said the man would be brought to trial at the April tomi ot court. Parr was the husband of Joncs- boro's postmaster and Mrs. Caraway made her home at the Parr residence on visits to Jonesboro from Washington. The senator has not maintained a house of her own here for a number of years. Fietz quoted Mathes as saying the quarrel started when he discharged Parr's niece who has been employed at the Compress. The manager said he went to Parr's of- fcie yesterday to obtain the company president's signature to payroll vouchers and at the same time May Result in Draft Meeting Washington, March 30 — (/I 1 ) — A conference here next week ot Slate Selective Service directors was scheduled today amid reports that changes in regulations are impending to clear the way for drafting of fathers when other classes arc exhausted. National headquarters discounted the Importance of the meeting, describing it as an annual affair to give state directors and national officers an opportunity to go over ..their problems and exchange ideas. But reports persisted that there soon would be major changes in regulations, possibly lumping all fathers outside the non deferable group into a new class, despite War Manpower Commissioner Paul V. McNutt's admonition against speculation. These reports are based in part 'jn the fact that while drafting of fathers whose children are countable as dependents is barred by national regulations until further notice, many slates will have Tulsa Killing Probed Tulsa, Okla., March 30 — (/I 1 )— County Attorney Dixie Gilmer today delved into the financial dealings of T. Karl Simmons, Tulsa oil man, with Mrs. Ella B. Howard, Fort Worth divorcee, held on a charge ot murdering his wife, Gilmer subpoenaed from the First National Bank and Trust Company the financial records ot the oil man from January 1, 1930, lo March 29, 1942. "I want to find out just how proposed an amicable settlement ot the dispute. He said Parr refused a reconciliation and the shooting followed. Fietz said the slaing was witnessed by Joe Finch, Jonesboro insurance adjuster, who was in Parr's office at the time. Senator Caraway left Washington this morning to return here for the Parr funeral. Rev. Dr. KQARL uf Sto'z Hartford, Conn., March 30 — UP)_ Rev. Dr. Karl Ruf Stolz, 59, dean of the Hartford school of re- igious education and widely known psychologist and author, died last night. Sikorski suggested that an Allied air force should go to the Russian ront after the fighting in Tunisia s concluded, as an expression of Allied solidarity. 'unselfish coordination will have ' played a vital part when finally the Allies have fought' their way •Jhrough the remaining valleys of death to success. Among the points •e nvist nole are these: I--T 1. Allied coopcralion existed not ^•ionly in Tunisia but extended to the 1 7 continent. The unprecedented ' bombiing of Berlin, and other Axis cities recently has been, among other things, to force the Germans to keep warplanes at home for defense instead of sending them to Tunisia and the Russian front. 2. The great part played by the British and American air forces in the Tunisian campaign again emphasizes the growing importance of this fighting Army. Montgomery's victory over Rommel in Egypt and Libya was due in no small degree to Anglo - American airpower, and the same can be said of the present show. The Mareth Line probably couldn't have been mastered without the terrible bombing administered to Rommel's positions Thus we have further proof that as Allied air strength increases in the various theaters, so do our successes. . . 3. Tunisia also reminds us ot GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, March 30 — (/P) — Grain futures trading held within a restricted range today although the undertone of the market was firm Most trading interests focused at tention on developments in Wsah ington and seemed reluctant to take a position on cither side of the market. Rye and oats followet wheat and corn was held at ceiling 1C VClO. to begin calling these men about July to meet quotas. Hence to keep up the flow of men to the armed services it would be necessary to lift the ban against drafting fathers generally or make broad additions to the non - defer- able list, which permits the induction of fathers who remain in such jobs and activities. Both these steps may be taken. Creation of a classification for fathers apart from the 3-A and I 3B rating they now occupy along with childless married men would simplify the task of local boards in going over their records to determine who may be reclassificd 1-A. Childless married men alread are being reclassified from 3-A much money has been paid to Mrs. Howard, and the purpose of these payments," Gilmer said. Mrs. Simmons, 55, widely known horsewoman, was shot to death in the Mayo Hotel last Thursday Mrs. Howard told county authorities that Mrs. Simmons forced her way into her room, threatened lo kill her and in a struggle over a pistol, was wounded fatally. Gilmer, in asking a delay in Mrs. Howard's preliminary hearing until Friday, told Common Pleas Judge Gracly Cornell in a hearing yrcllminary hearing until Friday, told Common Pleas Judge Gratl Cornell in a hearing csterday that Simmons, in a signed statement, related that he has known Mrs. Howard for eight years and that he gave her §20,000 in 1942. Connolly Seeks Favorable Post War Program Washington, March 30 (/I 3 ) — Post-war legislation on which more than two-thirds of the Senate could agree was the ambitious goal today of Chairman Connnll (D.Tc.x) of the Foreign Relations committee as he called a subcommittee into session to tackle a vai-iet of proposals.

Among the resolutions tii? com- j mittcc planned to take up was one ' introduced by Senators Ball (R- Minn.), Hill (D-Ala.i, Hatch (D- NM), and Burton (ROhio) which would urge this government to act now for joint action on current economic, political and relief questions and for post-war resistance o aggression by armed force. Connally hus asserted he favors joint military and Naval action to resist an future aggression, but indicated he would like to confine Senate dclcaration to broad gen- ernl terms. Meanwhile a proposal that ihe electorate pass on an pence Ircnt ncgoliatecl by the president and left unralificd by the Semite was mode by Rep. Feighan (U- Ohio). He suggested an amendment lo the conslilution that would allow a nallonnl referendum on an peace terms should the Senate fail lo ratify whatever the president proposed. In offering his resolution for approval by both houses, Keghan indicated he sought lo avoid a repetition ot the Senate's rejection of the League of Nations' plan following the First World War.

Jesse Brown, Owner Phone 2 the great striking power which Ihe Allies are piling up around the world. As I have already reported in this column, one of the outstanding impressions of my recent 35,000 mile swing through the war ones was that we finally are hitting our stride in the matter of providing the wherewithal with which to beat the enemy. 4. Of general interest to all the Allies, and of peculiar interest to America, is the fact that our newly tried fighting forces — barring the air veterans who have been with Montgomery in Libya — have come thruogh strong. Morale has been top-hole and they have done a business-like job. There remains one interesting question which I hear frequently, and that is; what will happen to Rommel when his last defense cracks? Well, one can figure out a lot of answers, but the most logical seems to me to be that Hitler will be a fool if he doesn't order the Marshal to fly home. Rommel is too valuable to the fatherland to be allowed to fall into Allied hands if he can get away. In a report to the president and congress, two of the three board members declared thai uniformity was necessary "to provide cqua opportunity for the economic dc velopment of all parts of the country without artificial rate handi cap or preference." Theyurged that Congress amend the Intertate Commerce art by "declaring that it is in the inter cst of a proper development of th country a a whole that a uniform clasification of freight rates b established for natian - wide appli calion, but with differential are clearly jutified."
