With their belief in Its future and their faith in Us citizens they have planned several definite community projects for the year. One of these Is the series of mass meetings. "At no little expense and after con- Ijlderable effort on the part of the program committee four outstanding Breakers have been engaged.

WAT.7KR, ' U. .1*.-Financial Eilllur. NEW YORK, May 3.-First quarter earnings statements which are still appearing are not making a good showing, compared with 1929, but they are exactly in line with expectations, according to.,Wall Street observers. These statements are considered merely water over the dam, and of minor importance to the outlook for 'the second quarter now one month gone. Recovery has been noted in most lines and further gains are expected weekly. The Harvard Economic society looks for a better than seasonal recovery in the second three-month period, and this belief is borne out by many business men throughout the country. j At the present time outside construction, especially road building and public building, are going forward rapidly and the army of unemployed has been reduced considerably. Automobile production in the cheaper and medium-priced cars is also showing signs of pickup. Outlook for this industry is brighter now that producers are keeping their output within the bounds of demand. Incidentally the situation that exists in the automobile trade is apparent everywhere. Inventories are being kept low, a redeeming feature, and one that will prevent any further exten-..( ""^j'^t'ils't year' sion of panicky developments in the : 40 ' 000 trout Iast ? eal > future. The fact that production has been pared down to immediate needs brought considerable downward readjustment in the latter part of the first quarter and hence appeared to be reduction in demand, where it was actually a change for the better. , in line with the outlook for further improvements in business tyie stock market has been going through a readjustment of values and ia now in position to profit by good news that may develop. Brokers are looking for upward movement on a large scale in Seven co-operative trout nurseries run by Pennsylvania Izaak Walton league chapters have been allotted for 1930 a total of 140,000 Uhited States hatchery^ fish.. Seventy thousand are brook trout, 40,000 are rainbows and 30,000 Loch Levens. State headquarters of the Izaak Walton league has reports from the bureau of fisheries that Uncle Sam is putting more than 700,000 trout into Pennsylvania coop- erativ\a or Hoover nurseries this year, the distribution to be completed about May 15. This does not take into account the Harrisburg and Windber cooperative hatcheries, which last year ' handled about half a million trout and will have more this year. The Windber hatchery, operated by the Wlrtdber Sportsmen's association, in the northeastern part of Somerset county, not far from Johnstown, has a capacity of 2,000,000 eggs. Nearby, in Bedford county, is the new trout nursery of the state fish commission at Reynoldadale, where all of the water supply Is from one enormous spring, fed, apparently, from an underground reservoir in the neighboring mountains, as the flow does not show the effects of heavy rains. \ Izaak Walton nurseries are being stocked at Belleville, Chester, Clearfield, Hazleton, Sharon, Punxsutawney and Muncy. Renovo, Ridgway and St. Mary's handled from 10,000 to the near future. Many houses are forcing employes to take their vacations so that they can be in a position to handle big markets expected in the latter part of the summer. The stock exchange is going ahead rapidly with it£ change of tickers, to' the new high-speed machine, and when the installation is complete, the tickers will be stepped up to where they can handle markets up to 10,000,000 or more shares with ease. These markets, It is expected, will materialize before ,the end of the year. , The total distribution to nurseries by the United States bureau this spring consists of 500,000 brook trout, 120,000 rainbows and 110,000 Loch Levens. They are kept in the nurseries for varying periods and then distributed, half remaining in the neighborhood of the nurseries. Where they are to be planted in the same waters and at about the same time with stock from the state hatcheries, it is thought desirable to have the Herbert Hoover trout and the N, R. Buller trout about the same size. The state, however ia planting noth- , ing^ under six inches, and many of t,he brook trout put out last Fall and early this year were eight, ten and twelve Inches and more. The larger ones do not make «jood neighbors for fingerlings and many organizations are stressing the need for careful planning in stocking fish to prevent heavy losses. The big ones eat the little ones On the other hand, the cost of rearing the fish to the size of those planted by the state is heavy, and many fishermen, for this and other reasons, prefer to stock streams with trout of three or four Inches. The federal bureau is being asked to approve many additional nursery sites in this state to handle trout. There I? tendency, however, to be satisfied with the distribution of trout from state and federal sources and to turn attention to other fish, especially the pond fish which are regarded as "common" but are becoming extremely scarce. There is a big demand, of course, for small moVth black bass. State and nation are making progress in the propagation of this game fish and the Federal Bureau says bass nurseries are needed to a greater extent than trout nurseries. But there is a word of warning' from Commissioner H«nry O'Malley that "prevailing conditions have made it much more difficult to develop such projects." • State fish Commissioner Buller also has Issued many cautions as to bass in the matter of undertaking to rear them, and stronger cautions In the matter of stocking dams and ponds and smaller streams with them, declaring that success with the bass in ponds, dams or lakes means .extermination of other species of fish. "In every instance where the black bass have been introduced into'small In ColiunblH, S.
