To this extent there is regret here that hesir tancy in buying'bonds more or. less, retards-the recovery of business; In. other wosds until the bond market is- active and permanent capital is released for .commercial' purposes the stock market will be held back anyway. 'There is a feeling that in the next few months the ' stock market mindedness of. the country will gradually give away to the purchase of bonds and mortgages. Certainly until capital is available to these channels for construction much bf the talk of increased' employment of labor in building activities will continue to be largely hypothetical. Cheap money % > rates, now have gone on .for nearly six months and when large lenders of : capital see the average rate of money kept down in the next six months, or perhaps In .the next two years, they will be inclined, it is believed, to turn to private 6 per cent yields offered in the bond markets of the W9rld. Vhe Speculative fever, in other words, still hangs on as a debilitating force in American business, but there is nothing that officialdom can do about it except emphasize,and reiterate that money rates are not going tp go up, but will be kept down for months and perhaps years.

A meeting of the Altoona Quota club, a deferred session, will be held thi^ evening at 6.15 o'clock at the Pen,n-Alto hotel. LONDON, May 31.—Clocks in at least two of the de luxe hotels of London are always fast—from two and a half to three minutes. The reason? It's been found that the watches of London visitors often erratic in their time-keeping, and with the probable result that tourists and the like are pften late for^ appointments. ISo the managements of the hotels help them out by considerately keeping the front office clocks just a little fast. (Copyright, 1930, by New XorK Sun.) LIUUTNINU U1NUS A LA KM. KOYAL OAK. Mich..
