*?"* < ON STOCK MARKET • Following Action on Market, Traders Rave Turned to f^ Side—Prices Gradually Work Higher. '/By OEOJtOE t. HUGHES. (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) • WALL STRBBT, NEW YORK, May f?.—Convinced not by anything In the news, but by the action of the market Itself, traders .turned to the buying tide in today's stock trading sesSlon. Aside from a few individual issues where there were special reasons for weakness, prices worked upward, with the utilitiea the leaders. In the early dealings the two features were the buying of the electric light and power shares, and the pressure on' the agricultural Implement stocks. All the utilities were strong, notably American Power & Light up 4 to 5 points, American ft , Foreign Power, Public Service of New Jersey, Standard Gas & Electric, North American and American Telephone & Telegraph, one of the few important stocks which had been heavy on Monday. Consolidated Gas at 130 was higher than at any time last week. The report was revived that United Corporation would make an offer for the shares _,hut there was no Information as to the terms of the exchange, and the Street was in doubt as to whether or not the arrangement had been discounted In tho price of the stpbk. The weakness in the agricultural stocks was said to be due to dotlbts as to whether the companies concerned could keep up the p'ace of the early spring, when business is understood to have been highly* satisfactory. Both J. I<- Case and International Harvester sold off'easily on a combination ol liquidation and of offerings for short account. American Locomotive dipped to another rlew low during the forenoon and Diamond Match was down sharply at one time, but all of these were exceptions in a generally firm market. MEMJST BE DROPPED m GOOD OF ALL By B.,0. fOBBES Make good—or make room. That sounds harsh. But It is the law, the inexorable' law of economics. Is it,, in reality, cruel, or \v_ould any other law be ..Unfair? Wouldn't any other law discriminate against merit? Wouldn't any other law entail favoritism? Wouldn't any other law tend to discourage effort? m , , And, finally, wouldn't any other law militate against progress, against the advancement of civilization? The most distasteful duty that falls uponr'a large-hearted executive, one whose whole philosophy of life is goodwill towards his fellowmen, is to dismiss employes, especially employes having a long record of conscientious service, but who have not proved able Today'* New Vorlt guoUlloni.

Thus: — "In a progressive organization, one constantly searching fdr new and better /nethods and for better results. It Is inevitable that occasionally there is a man who absolutely fails to keep abreast of the procession. When this arises, action must be taken. Senti- mentallsm cannot be allowed, to rujl wild. There i is one guide, 'one unfailing test. f "It is profits. "That may sound materialistic, bul In reality it isn't. The only genuinely cheap things the world gets are those produced at a profit. ("Therefore, to do what appears to be a hard thing is sometimes Inescapable. One must have the courage to do It In the, interest of the whole community, in 'the general social in- interest, in the interest of the great public that uses your products. To do the right thing under such circumstances takes a happy combination of sympathy and cold-bloodedness. Yet every executive must strive conscientiously to do the right thing by his stockholders,, by the employes and by 'consumers. And you cannot do the right thing by maintaining drones in the beehive, by shielding round pegs in square holesi" Undue conceit -undermines .the maximum usefulness of many an employe, especially In the^'hlgher ranks. Too many men become puffed up by an exaggerated sense of their -own importance and by an exaggerated sense of the value of their services. Not a few reach that fatal stage of assum* ing cocksuredly that they have become indispensible. Self-confidence is an invaluable asset. Conceit is a liability—carried far enough it becomes fatal. No man is so big that he can afford never to ask himself, coldly and. candidly, how far he is falling short of the utmost possibilities of his position. Seaching self-analysis can be (extremely wholesome, particularly for the smug. If every employe .were to keep prominently in mind the decree "make good —or make room," fewer occasions would arise for the wielding of the Hesitate to convince yourself axe.' that you are world-beater, and never — »ever — delude yourself that you are indispenslble. /No human is in- diapenslble. (Copyright, 1930, by B. C. Forbes.) DAY'S ACTIVITY IN GRAir MARKET By GEOUGE O. SCHNACKEL. (Copyright, 1930, by' Altoona Mirror.) CHICAGO, May 27.—A weak undertone prevailed in Wheat today. Foreign advices were bearish and caused general selling. Prices sold off from th'e start with selling prompted by the decline in Liverpool, reports of sales of Russian wheat to the continent, larger offerings from India, and the statement of the farm board that it will end its participation in tho market as soon as the prevailing" surplus is disposed of buying against indemnities checked the decline. Corn was Inclined to lower levels with wheat. Commission houses sold December, while locals pressed July and September for sale. Principal support came from holders of indemnities,* Country offerings were light and mostly of No. 2 yellow corn for five- day shipment at % cent under July. Shipping trade was moderate with receipts here 174 cars. Oats were slightly lower. The decline in other grains and liquidation in May served to bring about reduced levels. Provisions were lower with hogs. • Open. High. Low. Close. WHEAT— May 107 -107 100% 306 : !i 107 107 lOBVi 106% ' ... lOOli lOOKi 108% 109% 113% HS-li 113 113% July Sept Dec CORN— May July ....

', NMW- ifORk, May 27.— Renewed heavy selling ofjthe Second-grade rail bonds featured bond trading today. The street received with disappointment the reports of fourteen carriers starving a decrease of over 26 per cent ii* net Inco'me during the first four months of the 1 year, as compared with the name, period of 1929, , and those bonds most easily affected were Ihfown onto the market In large blocks. Otherwise the list presented an irregular appearance, with flrm- ness in the hlgh-gi'ade group, minor fluctuations m the Industrials and slight advances in many of the foreign dollar bonds. * Iri the landslide of junior railroad issues, St. Paul/Adjustments accounted 'for most of the trading, and had the widest loss, dropping over 2 points below its previous low price since 1928. St.- Paul 5'sf a;bdnd much more secure, eased ott fractionally. It is within 2 points of Its low for 1930. v Other active losers In this group were'Rock island 4%'a, Erie refunding 5's, International Great Northern Adjustments, Frisco 4%'s, Southern Railroad 4's, Western Maryland 4's and Boston & Maine 5's. Volume was much heavier than on Monday, chiefly due to the dealing -in railroad bonds, but activity tapered off after the first hour. Time money remained around 3 to 3% per cent for 90-day bills, but a downward trend In bankers' acceptances indicated . that rates hiay be still lower before the week is through. FINANCIAL GOSSIP IN WALL STREET ; By ELMER C. WAtZEB, U. P. financial Editor. NEW YORK, May 27. — A small amount of short covering has misled Wall Street to the conclusion that the market is due for a quick advance, but In present circumstances this cannot happen. There Is a way to start a bull movement, arm that is by springing something startling constructive. In the Coolldge administration a word from the president was enough to sway Lhe market mightily. Street is not shaken Somehow Wall by statements from the administration these days. A clean-cut tariff out of the way might be a tonic, but it has been with us so ong as a bogey that clearing up might be only temporary. A real upturn 1 in some major line such as might be depleted in strongly advancing car load- ngs or exports also might help. The real remedy would be- a definite turn upward In commodity prices. < We are now nearlng the last month of the second quarter and the'time will soon be here for second quarter and first half earnings reports. These will not be particularly good. Wall Street knows that, but It knew that first quarter showings would not match with the records set in 1929. First quarter statements were the signal for a selling orgy that brought many stocks below their lows touched in the 1929 panic. Will the second quarter reports do the same thing? Leading observers think not. They see in present conditions a different situation. Prices are at lower levels and the out- ook for a better third quarter is brighter than it was for an improved second quarter. The whole difficulty s that comparisons ate made in all cases with last year, which was as/abnormal on the upside as this year is on he*downside. HEAL ESTATE TRANSFERS. Calvin B.

(Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) UNION STOCKYARDS, CHICAGO, May 27.—The. hog market, with big packers bearish, continued to sag today, while cattle and sheep held their own. There was a fairly large run of hogs at 30,000 and since big packers hud 10,000 direct they were about out of the market. Salesmen had to depend on shippers and small packers who bought freely, but at a steady to 10-cent lower basis, The market top was $10.30 for light kinds, with best heavies at J10.15. Packing sows had a steady market, bringing ?8.85 to S9.60. A light run of 6,500 cattle compensated in a measure for the excessive run on Monday. There were many plain and medium cattle left over, but the total was about large enough to tit the demand. Shippers took good steers at $13 to $14, but not many were offered which could sell above $13 with the bulk at $10 to $12. Cows and heifers Imd a steady market with trade slow and buyers bearish. Bulls were barely steady, but calves met a strong de- Ham J. Fagan, 1917 Eleventh ave nue, Altoona $2,050 Ellda C. Flick, widow, to Mabel C. and Robert F. Flick, Bellwood .... $1 Charles B.

NEW STORK, May 27—With only two market sessions In May, and these likely to* be restricted as to volume and fluctuations by the approaching long holiday, it is possible to outline some of the features that have been conspicuous, ih an in-between month, In speculative and seml- Irtvestment securities. In general, it can be said that may has corrected a number of the Weh- nldal weaknesses that developed out of the ill-advised bull markets of March and April. It has been a period of con slderable recovery In the prices of some issues, but of further price head- justmehts in a small group of industrials that had not fully recognized the situation as to earnings and dividends in the general slump that culminated on May 5. Latterly, the daily record of new low prices for, tho year, which was quiet extensive irt the first half of May, has been shrinking. New high records have more than balanced the other side of the account, Midway between the low level of May and the present period, there were several Important shares that sold lower than in the general reaction which started in April and caused the largest depreciation In market values to be recorded for that month since November. " r May, on the contrary, should show an appreciation in value, for nearly all of. the twenty or more groups of stocks represented in daily transactions have rallied from the closing prices'of last month. It was the break in the coppers and in the rails in April that took over $1,000,000,000 from the values of listed securities, while the shrinkage in motor stocks was about 250,000,000 additional. /In May the active copper shares, with the exception of Calumet ft Arizona, whose dividend was sharply reduced, are slightly 'above the end of April quotations, although it is expected that in June the dividends on both Anaconda Copper and Kennecott Copper will be reduced. Railroad stocks had been going through a radical readjustment all during April, with the liquidation in them culminating on May 5. Since then, and in spite of the most discouraging traffic statements that have been presented in years, a majority of the prominent carrier stocks have advanced and today were above the April 30 prices. The group a» a whole should show some appreciation this month. Since the low May level, a dozen prominent rails have recovered an average of between 8 and 9 points.

CRONE (Copyright, 1930, by Altoona Mirror.) NEW YORK, May 27.—Public utilities, oils and a miscellaneous group of industrials led today's active curb market. Standard utilities, such as Electric Bond & 'Share, Eastern States Power B, Niagara-Hudson Power, United Light & Power A and Utilities Power & Light, headed the upswing that took place shortly before midday. American Gas &. Electric, however, provided the most interesting movement as 1[t rose about eight points on active buying. Floor traders credited this buying to the same group who were purchasing National Power & Light, Electric Power & Light and American Power & Light over on the big board. American & Foreign Power opened up 1% points as traders heard that its 1929 report would'be released Wednesday. This report will show acquisitions as well as earnings in the last year. Rumors that American & Foreign would go on a $5 basis are generally discredited. Creole Petroleum moved slightly higher. Its annual report, which will be made public tomorrow, is expected to reflect Standard Oil of New Jersey's activities in Venezuela, as Creole is a subsidiary of tha 1 -. company. BANK CLEARINGS.
