FRENCH FORCES ATTACK —Newsmap above shows where encircled French troops jnbbed sever} miles into the key base of Nasan (1), without meeting any enemy resistance. The palrol confirmed reports lhat (he Reds had withdrawn their defense perimeter. At Phatdiem (2), near the GuU of Tonkin, a French air raid wiped out a Red troop concentration. Asked why he bought Pitney- Bowes slock, he. says "the wind was from the north." To a question about his other stock ownership, Marx lists "two dry holes in Texas." The curious management wanted to know "How capable do you consider the present management?" And their Beverly Hills, Calif, i shareholder wrote back, "Good | golfers," He also rated their annual report as "tops in fiction." Pra o Ucal advise was handed out, too.

"Attend stockholder • meetings of companies and mutual funds in which you invest when they are within a reasonable radius of where you live or work." And then the Incly Investors got the real dope on how to be a success in the financial world, "If you are a stockholder by marriage because the stock is in your husband's name," Mrs, Soss advised them, "act as his proxy If lie cannot attend, or go together." Then she looked her lady investors right in ine eye and let them have it: "Or, better still—get the stock In your own name," 48 Books Added to Shelves Of Blytheyille Public Library BIG MOUSETERY—Kitty's all confused.
