Griffith wan awnrrlcrt a vnr- dlct for $8-10 In tlm court of Judge Marlon T). Patterson yesterday afternoon, against O. T. Adams. It. was an action In trespass and writ of Inquiry. GrlflUh, aged f.7, and nngr'tfrrt as itinerant prrtlnr, declared ho had been struck by an automobile d-lvcn by Adams, suffering n. broken rib and injuries to the head and legs. The aged man stated that, prior to the accident, about fifteen months ago, be made a nnt profit out of his business of $50 per month, on tho average, but since then has made nothing. Ho askdd to ho compensated for the loss of earnings, $127 hospital bill and for pain and suffering. Tho defendant did not appear and the Jury took the case following tho testimony nnd charge of tho court ami made the above award. Judge John E. Evnns of Cambria county spent almost two days In tho Blair rounty courts trying tho case of William Vlpond against Kclgar It. Vlpond and when tho plaintiff, represented by Altornoy John M. Snyder, had concluded his caso, John Woodcock, counsel for the defendant, made a motion for a compulsory non-suit, because the plaintiff failed to make out a prlmafacie case and the motion was sustained. Tuesday morning Judge Marlon D. Patterson opened the trial of Frank and Paulino Christner of Mount Washington, Pittsburgh, against John Hopfl of this city In which a verdict for damages was sought for tho alleged reason that Hopfl's automobllc/struck an 8-year-old son of the plaintiffs In Johnstown and Injured him to such an extent that ho died. Hopfl, admitting that It was his car that figured In the accident, maintained that It was rather tho boy striking the car than the car striking the boy; In other words, tho boy ran in tho direct pathway of his machine and the accident was wholly unavoidable. The Jury, after deliberation, brought in a verdict of- not guilty of trespass. Judge Patterson yesterday afternoon Issued a subpoena in thn divorce suit of Yernu May Ijyman against Ail- drew James Lyman, returnable the first Monday of December. Thf wlfu charges her husband with cruel and barbarous treatment. Alias subpoenas warn awarded In the following cllvorcn suits: John W. Reffner against Virginia L. Reffncr and Taylor Fuller against Ida May Fuller, both returnable according to la\v. Judge Patterson yesterday afternoon took up the trial of tho caso of Jacob W. Mader against Frank, Carl and John Llnd, trading us Llnd Brothers. This suit is the outgrowth of an accident which occurred at Lock Haven at about 8.15 o'clock In the evening of Oct. 29, 1927. The plaintiff resides in Lock Havon; the defendants reside In Blair county and own property hero; that is why tho suit was brought here. Mader stated that on this particular evening ho hud gone to tho station of the Philadelphia und Erlo railroad, at Bcllefonte avenue, to meet the 8.16 train upon which his son was a passenger. He went as planned and other people were there as well, so when the train neared the station tho crowd , sui'god, pushing him backwards Into a .concrete oil well which the defendants were building for tho Independent Oil compan and which it is claimed was not protected. < Mader, a njun well advanced In •years, declared he was terribly Injured 'as the result of the accident. He suffered the fracture of a rib, had a concussion of the bruin, his noso was .broken and he has been an Invalid ever since. Prior to tho accident he was .earning $75 in two weeks; now ho is earning nothing. Tho man therefore brought this suit • for compensatory and punitive dam- 'agos, claiming money for loss of tlmo 'and earning power and for pain und 'Buffering.

OATH OfOFFICE TAKEN BY GRAHAM (By United Press.) PITTSBURGH, Nov. 7.—Louis H. Graham of Beaver was sworn In a* United States attorney for th« Western district of Pennsylvania in federal court here today, succeeding John D.

Gtahaih, wno returned to Pittsburgh yesterday from Washington, where h^ was said to have held conferences with Attorney General Mitchell and Senator David A. Reed regarding the appointment of assistants, was accompanied to the Federal building by a number of friends. The oath of office had been delayed, because of charges made before • the United States senate by Attorney John S. Pyle that Graham was not fit to become the prosecutor here. These charges were .aired at a heating in Washington recently and a few days later the appointment was confirmed. On the eve of the opening of ^ the Novemb'er term of court, next Tuesday, Graham has a task ahead of/him which will require weeks of steady work. However, Assistant United States attorneys have a number of cases ready for trial and the indictments to • be presented to the grand jury next Tuesday have been prepared under the direction of the secretary to Meyer.

TONGUES OF GOSSIP SCARCELY STILLED (Continued from Page 1.) 11 can member of thft American; -commission which will negotiate thfe af- matnfnt treaty, who recognized ln^ stantijr that an error had been- mada and did all he could to rectify it. The president'^ letter to Senator Johnson states that he" learned "from the press last night" that Mr. Johnson did not receive an Invitation, This is taken to mean that he was apprised of it on Tuesday ^vening, when the dinner occurred. The newspapermen received the Invitation list Tuesday afternoon about 4 o'clock and some of them called the attention of White House officials to the fact that Senator Johnson was not included. It Is not known Just when the Information was conveyed to Mr. Hoover that the California senator's name was" omitted but the assumption is that he received word too late to get In touch with Mr. Johnson. Some time betweten 4 o'clock and 7 on Tuesday evening a last-minute Invitation, with an apology for its lateness, might have been conveyed to the California senator. It may be, however, that Mr. Hoover was not apprised in time for such action to be taken. The national capital Is wondering about the allp-up because, while the California senator has accepted the apology, it is recognized _that hard;y a single instance could "have occurred which would be more embarrassing to Mr, Hoover, particularly because Senator Johnson and Mr. Hoover have not been politically friendly, and recently there has been gossip about the alleged coldness between the two men ori account of Mr. Johnaon's pronouncd opposition to some Hoover policies. It Is for this reason that Mr. Hoover took the unprecedented step of making a public apology. It is true that Wednesday morning the newspapers published reports call- Ing attention to the absence of the invitation and senators talked about it to sucti an extent that Senator Reed of Pennsylvania hurried to the White House to find out what had happened. The Pennsylvania senator explained, that there had been too many invited In order to balance th& table and that instructions had been given to cross out the name of Nelsqn iJohnson of the state department, but instead the name of the California senator had been unintentionally omitted. Whatever explanations is made about the error, the disposition is to absolve the president himself of any responsibility; but this does not diminish' the wonder of the capital generally that incidenta like this can happen in the White House with all the machinery given the chief executive fbr the handling of such matters. CONFERENCE IS HELD. The second of the series of employe- executive conferences being held by th -Altoona and Logan Valley Electric Railway company was conducted this morning starting at 10 o'clock at the company's car barns, Sixth avenue and Thirty-second street. Upwards of twenty-five employes of the system were in attendance. Among today's speakers were Charles A. Hoofrtagle, superintendent of transportation, and John P. Stouch, safety director of the company. . STiMY'SPWNS GIGANTIC SOCIAL On fhuftsdAy' ivenlngr, Nov., i*> the combined nooletl** of at.

' - FINANCIAL 60881? IN WALL By ELMER C. WA1«B« '"•** V. P. Financial Editor / NEW YORK, Nov. 7.-<As billion after billion is clipped fromtetock market valuation, finding of the bottom of; the decline becomes more puztllngV That the market has now worked itself into a better • technical condition, no one denies, but most admit therd. ars still many sore spots that must be ad- lusted. A crash such as the one which has gripped the list for the last month Is not easily gotten over. The scar remains for a long time, and Until full confidence returns little in the way of a stable market can be expected, The psychology of the mob account* for the sudden reversal in market status. Just as the market was car* rled to extravagant highs in the rush to buy that ended last Aug. 9, it is now being carried down beyond all reason. The present condition of business and its. future prospects do not justify such low prices aa now prevail for.many of the country's best stocks. But sense of value, has lost Its proportions because of fear of the traders throughout the country.. Their hasty selling has impaired margins. As margins are weakened more selling la touched pff, and this selling in turn sends prices down and down, and keeps the ball rolling toward the pit. .Where the decline willXend no one knows.
