CHICAGO, Dec. 5. UP) Wheat rose 11 cents a bushel in Chicago today, chiefly owing to prospects that tomorrow's unofficial domestic crop reports would be pessimistic regarding winter wheat conditions.

Dec. 5. UP The stock market today of f ered "niore resistance to selling that in the past week or so and leading issues, on the whole, held declines to negligible amounts. The drying up of volume pro vided some cheer for recovery proponents. With the ticker tape loafing throughout, transfers ap proximated 650,000 shares, the lowest aggregate since Sept. 22. Minor fractional losses pre dominated at the close, but there was a handful of modest gainers in evidence. Adjustment of accounts for in come tax purposes continued as a price deterrent. The general run of business news, confirming the flattening out of the upward curve, was a further check on speculative sentiment. Steels held fairly well despite an officially-estimated decrease of .8 of a point in this week s mill operations. United States government securities displayed strength, but corporation bonds were mixed. Wheat at Chicago was up J to 14 cents a bushel and corn was ahead i to 11 cents. Cotton, in late transactions, was narrow. Near mid-afternoon sterling was up 11 cents at $4,691. The French franc was .003 of a cent higher at 2.64 g cents. NEW YORK STOCKS (Furnished by Sherman J.

A." Dicus, chairman of the State Highway commission, reported today. Tabulation of questionnaire forms filled out by 2,965 persons at the Indianapolis Motor show last month, show 1,542 votes for a speed limit and 1,360 votes against such regulation. Indiana has no blanket speed law governing traffic on the highways outside cities and towns, authoritiy for the establishment of speed zones being vested in the State Highway commission. In the questionnaire prepared by the Highway commission's Bureau of Traffic and published in many of the newspapers during the past week, all persons were invited to register their opinion on various traffic questions, including, "Should we have a speed limit on Indiana highways?" A following question asked what this limit should be.

UP) The mountain town of Salida has announced officially it has found "pictorial proof" that trout with fur on their sides once swam in the waters of the Arkansas river. Tales of the furry fin-flippers have circulated here since Zebulon Pike first glimpsed the Rocky mountains. Old-timers swear that trout with fur plainly visible on their sides once were numerous. A request for proof of the fur-bearing trout story was received recently from Platte, Kans., by Wilbur Foshay, secretary of the Salida Chamber of Commerce. chickens, Rocks, 16 20c; colored, near-by, 16 17c; southern, 14c; Reds, 17c; broilers.

FRANCE TO HOLD ALL TERRITORY, DALADIER SAYS PARIS, France, Dec 5. UP) Premier Daladier flatly asserted today that France had no intention of giving up any part of her territory, personally answering Italian clamor for French Corsica and Tunisia. His statement was regarded as doubly significant in view of preparations here to receive Joachim von Ribbentrop, German foreign minister, who is coming to Paris tomorrow to sign a French-German no-war accord. Daladier did not limit his remarks to Italy's newly raised demands. He also declared France's resolution to desaand respect for "the absolute integrity" of , all French territory by "every means." Both French and Germans agree that the war-renunciation pact, similar to the declarations signed by Reichsfuehrer Hitler and British Prime Minister Chamberlain at Munich Sept. 30, would be only the starting point for further negotiations between Paris and Berlin. . TUNIS, TUNISIA, Dec. 5.-4K Heavy police guards were thrown around the Italian consulates in Tunis and Susa-Tunisie today following angry demonstrations to the shouts of "Down with Italy!" in both cities yesterday. An undetermined number of rioters were injured in skirmishes, and 15 persons were arrested. FARM SALE CARD ranged from 35 to 80 miles an hour with nine votes for the minimum figure and five for the maximum. The largest vote for any single speed was for a maximum of 50 miles an hour, 581 favoring that speed while 496 voted for a 60-mile speed limit. There were 777 votes in favor of a limit of 50 miles or less and 686 votes in favor of a limit of 55 miles an hour or higher. One of the surprising results of the auto show survey was the almost unanimous vote in favor of requiring pedestrians to obey stop-and-go signs, favoring compulsory inspection of motor vehicles, and expressing willingness to voluntarily enter driver testing clinics to discover physical weaknesses affecting operation of motor vehicles. Blanks filled out at the auto show were 2,850 to 106 in favor of pedestrian observance of stop-and-go signals 2,657 to 252 in favor of motor vehicle inspection, and 2,765 to 130 for the driver testing clinics.

Dr. Jones has frequently been in Richmond in attendance upon Friends' gatherings and particularly he has many times visited Earlham college where he delivered the baccalaureate address in 1936. Dr. Jones was to have visited Richmond during the next week end under the auspices of the American Friends Service committee and was to have spoken at the First Friends and West Richmond Friends churches on Saturday and Sunday and in the Earlham chapel on Monday, Dec 12. President Dennis, when his attention was called to the press dispatch, said that he had received a letter from Dr. Jones in which he stated that the need for his going to Germany had seemed so urgent that everything else had had to give way to it, but that he still hoped tc come to Richmond later in the year. President Dennis pointed out that Dr. Jones' mission was in accordance with a long tradition in the Society of Friends under which concerned Friends had gone about over the world not merely visiting Friends' communities and meetings but visiting the heads of government in the interest of better international relations and various reforms. President Dennis added, "This tradition 'has come down from the days of George Fox, William Penn, John Woolman. Stephen Grellet, and others. All these men have left interesting accounts of their mission journeys. - "I recall that when I was a stu dent in Earlham, Prof. William B Morgan gave a chapel talk on Stephen Grellet in which he discussed his journeys in the interest of the movements in which the So ciety of Friends was concerned. One interesting anecdote which Professor Morgan read to us from Stephen Grellet's memoirs related to a visit which Grellet made to the pope in which someone deftly removed Grellet's hat just as he entered the presence of the pontiff in such a manner that everyone s scruples were satisfied Grellet had not removed his hat and he had not gone covered into the presence of the pope. Incidentally, Grellet made a mission journey to Germany in 1812 during the Na poleonic wars. "Barnabas Hobbs, first president of Earlham college and one of the early superintendents of public instruction in Indiana and one of the leaders in education in the state, went on a number of pilgrimages of this character. On one occasion he went to Washington during the Civil war in the fri- terest of the Friends who had been drafted into the army, seeing Sec retary Stanton and perhaps Presi dent Lincoln, with very success ful results. Another time he went on a mission to the Czar of Russia in the Interest of peace. Rufus Jones has the spirit and the wisdom of Stephen Grellet and Barnabas Hobbs and it is to be hoped thajr his mission will, like theirs have fortunate results."

Fails To Get Review James Cannon, jr., retired bishop of the Methodist Episcopal church. South, failed today to obtain a Supreme court review of a decision against him in a $500,000 slander suit against Representative Tink-ham (Rep., Mass.). Cannon's suit was based on statements made by Tinkham in 1930. He then asserted the bishop was a "shameless violator of the Federal Corrupt Practices act," and has not accounted for $48,300 of $65,300 he allegedly received during the 1928 election campaign. Consolidated Edison contended in arguments before the court it was not subject to the federal act because it operated entirely with in New York state and was regu lated there by state law. The Labor board replied that the company sold its product electricity, gas, and steam to railroads, communications compa nies, and other enterprises which operate beyond the confines of the state. It was argued by the board that the federal act applied because a strike or other labor disturbance at Consolidated Edison might have a "catastrophic effect on inter state commerce. Finding the company guilty of "unfair labor practices," the board said it had "set in motion a vig orous campaign to intimidate, in fluence, and coerce" its employees into loining the federation affili ate. The board also told the court prior to its decision today that the company had employed industrial spies and had discharged six employees for union activity. Their reinstatement, with pay, was ordered. Federal Matter Hughes said in his ruling "it cannot be doubted that the ac tivities of Consolidated Edison, "while conducted within the state, are matters of federal concern "In their totality," he added. "they rise to such a degree of im portance that the fact that they involve but a small part of the en tire service rendered by the utili ties in their extensive business is immaterial in the consideration of the existence of the federal pro tective power." After reciting the results which he said would be produced by stop page of the Consolidated Edison business, the opinion continued: "If industrial strife due to un fair labor practices actually brought about such a catastrophe we suppose that no one would question the authority of the fed eral government to intervene in order to facilitate the settlement of the dispute and the resumption of the essential service to inter state and foreign commerce. "But it cannot be maintained that the exertion of federal power must await the disruption of that commerce. Congress was en titled to provide reasonable pre ventive measures and that was the object of the National Labor Re lations act. ..." The chief justice decided, how ever, that the National Labor Re lations act "gives no express authority to the board to invalidate contracts with independent labor organizations." "We think," he continued, "that (the) authority to order affirmative action does not go so far as to confer a punitive jurisdiction enabling the board to inflict upon the employer any penalty it may choose because he is engaged in unfair labor practices, even though the board be of the opinion that the policies of the act might be fectuated by such an order." back 3 Men Found Dead in Boarding House MUNCIE, Ind., Dec 5.
