NEW YORK -- (.T) -- Numerous new highs for the past five years were recorded in Thursday's lively stock market. Communication, farm implement, fail and specialty issues led the forward movement. The activity was pronounced at intervals. The list quieted during profit taking periods. American Telephone. Case and Worthington Pump soared about 5 points each, and Western Union, Deere. Mack Truck, Chrysler and Caterpillar Tractor advanced 2 to 3. Gainers of fractions to a point or so included International Harvester, U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Firestone, Goodyear, Goodrich, International Telephone. Union Pacific, Louisville Nashville, Delaware Hudson, Cerro de Pasco and Warner Bros. The oil and power stocks were only moderately ahead. The late tone was firm. Transfers approximated 2,900,000 shares. Expectations of higher earnings and larger dividends were said to have spurred buying in the favored groups. The dollar more than held its own against leading foreign exchanges.

READ THIS FIRST: Thora Dahl, who has left her home in Minnesota and journeyed east, obtains a position as housekeeper for an eccentric gentleman named Selwyn Marsh who lives in suburban New York. She is to replace a Mrs. Myron who is going on a long vacation. NOW GO ON WITH THE SIOKY CHAPTER 8 To Thora's surprise, there was no sign of Mr. Marsh when she entered the diningroom the next morning, refreshed by a night's sleep and ready for any emergency. After some hesitation, she had donned -'i house dress, blue-checked, a shade that very nearly matched her eyes. Her golden hair was smooth and her cheeks glowing. Mrs. Myron, who was seated alone at the table, compressed her lips a trifle as she looked up. All she said was: "Good morning. Mr. Marsh is having his toast and coffee in the library. He wants to see you . . . after you eat." Tbora's spirits suddenly fell. What did he want to tell her . . . that he couldn't just as well have told Mrs. Myron? That little woman's face wag perfectly expressionless as she attacked her cereal. What had Thora done . . . or what hadn't she done? Was Mr. Marsh going to tell her that she didn't suit? Should she have acted differently? Been doesn't like me. She knows I'm smart enough to see what she's up to and she's found out she can't boss me. It took Selwyn a long time to figure I needed a vacation. She put him up to it, of course. She'll try to boss you, my dear." "Why' she?" "She will. You may not know it . . . but that's why I told you what I did the other day. She's a designing woman, if ever there was one." (TO BE CONTINUED) more talkative, assertive She couldn't do that, under the circumstances. Well, whatever it was, it would soon be over with. She made an apearance of eating and drank her coffee gratefully. Then, without a word, left the table and walked composedly to the library door. It was closed. She rapped on it gently. "Come on in!" called the familiar voice of the day before. . .!" Marsh sat back in his Whiskers to Flow Freely Paul Bunyan Cage Meet in Wells, Minnesota. harsh "Well chair and stared, "Mrs. Myron said you wished to speak to me, Mr. Marsh." "Oh, yes. . . ." He continued staring at her from under his drawn brows, as if she were an apparition of some sort. Thora felt more uncomfortable still, but she decided to take the situation into her own hands. "Did you wish to tell me that you had changed your mind about . . . me?" she suggested calmly. "No. I wanted to say that I had a talk with Mrs. Myron last night. She's either completely sold on you, or she's taken a sudden notion to get away. She tells me you can manage the place well enough. What do you think?" "I will try." "Then I'll tell her to get along whenever it suits. If you run into anything you think you can't handle see me. But try and work it out by yourself. I hate to be bothered with trifles." "Very well." "And let's get off on the right foot.

Little Mrs. Myron lost no time in making- ready for her departure from Fair Acres. "I guess Selwyn gave you the idea I was all worn out and ready for the scrap heap," she told Thora, glancing up from the stool she had placed between two open trunks. At her feet was a pile of precisely folded garments which she was dividing between the two receptacles as her deliberations dictated. "He said that you hadn't been very well," the girl admitted. "Nonsense! I haven't had a vacation for years. But this place is getting on my nerves." Thora nodded and said nothing. "That's all," Mrs. Myron explained positively. "I need a rest and Selwyn knows it ... same as he knows I'll come back any time he wants me." She held up a long black cotton stocking a n d examined it through her spectacles. "I guess there'll stand another mending. I'm quite a hand to hold on to things. Her glance shitted to Thora's hose. "It's a good thing for a girl to put something aside while she's young. One never knows what may happen. Wilma throws enough away in a year to dress two or three women. Pity you're not nearer a size." Thora waited. Mrs. Myron appeared to be lapsing into a near- confidential mood. "I hate to leave Selwyn, now the time's come," the older woman pursued meditatively. "Land knows, he'a plenty old enough to look out for himself. But I've always done it. I can tell him anything I've a mind to ... even if he doesn't pay much attention. He's terribly absent-minded at times. I hope you'll look after him." "I will try to." "I don't know. . . ." Mrs. Myron's eyes traveled to the nearest window and stared out speculatively. "I guess I shouldn't say anything about it, but I figure you got a lot of good sense. I started to tell you one day about . . . Dottie Stcele. I think I will.' Here it was at last. "She was a friend of Elizabeth. I don't know what she did with her husband . . . maybe he's dead by now. She lives on the next place, but she runs over here a lot. You'll see through her. Anybody could . . . but a man. She's always tried to make it look like Selwyn rvided 'tending to. More lately it's been Wilma. She's forever having something to say about the poor girl needing a mother. As if Wilma | didn't have me!" | Thora made no rejoinder. This i was not a time to break the spell. "That's what's been getting on my nerves." Mrs. Myron' admitted. She compressed her lips Lightly. "Dottie Stcelc's very sweet, to me in front of my face.

North Dakota State at Teachers College. CEDAR FALLS--The first divis. ion of the North Central conference basketball ace, which includes only the two North Dakota schools, was undisturbed last week but the second division saw every team moved. With the league leaders padding their scoring columns with easy wins over the Iowa State Teachers college, the two schools remained in the undefeated class. Friday night North Dakota State handed the Panthers a 31 to 23 loss and the following night North Dakota humbled the Tutors, 52 to 29. The two defeats dropped the Teachers college five from third to fifth. Morningside, playing only one game, moved from fourth to third by defeating South Dakota state, 37 to 25. Omaha, tied with Morningside for fourth last week, lost to South Dakota, 30 to 29, and South Dakota State, twice, 29 to 23 and 46 to 27, to fall back to a tie for sixth with the Coyotes. The only game with a direct bearing on the title this week will find North Dakota State at Morningside Friday night. The Maroons must win this encounter to remain in the running for the loop championship. The other contests will bring the Bi- sons to Cedar Falls, and North Dakota to South Dakota.
