It doesn't pay to be too smart, 'nly those who make mistakes now the joy of getting tax re- unds.--Cedar KapMs Gazette. 15 cents more than yesterday for their best holdings. Demand for pork was-so sharply improved that both shippers and packers were anxious to buy. Many loads of good to choice 150 to 190 pound weights sold at 58.00 in the early trading and others were held back to bring $8.10. The supply of hogs locally and at the 11 primary markets was smaller than for the same day last week. Prosperity in the hog market diverted attention from the depressing state of the cattle market. Weaker prices again appeared in sight as buyers- looked over the plain short feds on sale and bid lower. All the gains;ot late last week had been wiped out yesterday, and prices again ^stbod at the season's bottom. Demand for vealers was the only cheerful note in the early trade, as all buyers, appeared to be satisfied with prevailing price levels. Runs totaling 33,700 head of cattle at the 11 large markets exceeded last Tuesday's supply by 5,000. Delayed marketing of lambs yesterday, pending the trend of the market, help to swell the size of today's supplies at all points, and with the Chicago run of 15,000 on hand, buyers set out to erase the advances scored yesterday. Steady to weak prices ' were in order, with, packers taking the lead in bidding?8.50@8.75 for the bulk of light and medium weights. Hogs closed slow, .with the early advance erased on strong weights.

SAY INDUSTRIAL ACT1V1TV ClUOU'lNd Definite galna In industrial activity arc now beginning to appear, the American Bankers Association Journal, just mode public, declares In its monthly review ot business, "Steel production Increased from 25 nor cent of capacity at the end of December to 50 per-cent at the start of February," the review says. "Automobile output is b G i n y expanded conservatively and nome authorities believe the forecasts of 4,000,000 vehicles in 1931 are too low. The building program la not expected to exceed 1930, but will be bel- ter balanced. A number of Industries are now speeding up after taking price cuts, such as shoes, rubber tires and the textiles, others are steadily strengthening their position thru adherence to curtailment, such as copper mining, petroleum, sugar and paper." UIDKR PUISI.IC INTEREST REPORTED BV BROKERS Brokerage houses reported a substantial Increase In outside participation, Indicating that the public has been waiting for the right klnd^ ot leadership. The turnover of 4.100,0DO shares Monday ,was almost double the recent average and was the largest of any day since Dec. 17, At times the ticker tape was behind trad- Ing, the first time this has happened In an advancing market In several months. Not having witnessed any advance to speak of for some time, many observers viewed the performance with suspicion. The Usual talk of low commodity prices and poor business was heard In quarters Inclined to bearish - neas- Those who remembered the bear market of 1021. however, pointed to tho fact that stock prices turned upward six months commodity prices. AVERAGE YIELD OF STOCKS DECLINES The averngo "yield of 376 cash dividend paying stocks on the New York Stock «-- nge declined from S.90 to S.29 per cent In January, according to Moody'5 Investors service. Altho the movement waa chiefly due to the moderate rise In stock prices. It was also Influenced by the pausing of 10 more first-quarter dividends, with the resulting elimination from the average of A. number n£ artificially high yields. Among the industrial groups with con- apiclously hlfih yields enrly In February were coal and coke, 12.33 per cent; paper, 12.28; ahues, 12.14; tobacco, othef than cigarels, 11.97. and theaters and amusements, 11,yi. Yields much below the average, on the other hand, were shown by can manufacturing, 4.75 per cent; mall order, 4.93; chain stores, 0.67; dairy companies, 6.25, and baking companies, 6.20. Utilities, except tractions, and .he bank and Insurance classifications were also among the lowest yield groups. OPTIMISM HOLDS IN STOCK MARKET Share Prices Push" Farther Into High Ground for Recovery. NEW YORK, Feb. 10. (./P)--The sudden resurgence of optimism in Wall street again governed the speculative markets today. Share prices pushed further into fresh high territory for the recovery, despite a breathing spell in the morning-, and bonds were in good demand at better prices. Such important .commodities as wheat, .corn, cotton, copper and silver also re- fleeted the wave of good cheer. TJ. S. Steel's unfilled tonnage report as of the end of January disclosed a larger gain in bookings of new business than had been expected, also helping to stimulate the better feeling. The progrss of share prices was enlivened by gyrations in some of the volatile issues. Auburn added about 16 points tp yesterday's ad vance of nearly 19, and Case surge up 10 points. The market sold of for a time after a furious firs half hour of trading, but after mi( day kept on the uphill track. Jonn Manvillo and Republica Steel pre ferred sold up 5 points, and issue up 2 to 4 included U. S. Steel, Re public Steel, Westinghouse Electri New York Central, Pennsylvania Missouri Pacific, Atchison, Brie New Haven, Southern Pacific, Nort American, Ryers, Eastman, Vana dmm, United Aircraft and Nationa Steel. Such issues as General Motor American Telephone and ' Genera Electric sold up a point or so. In the main the violent 'upswin in stocks lacked positive develop merits in industrial or trade cond tions to back it up, and it was sti regarded as primarily a technlca correction of an oversold condition Wall Street felt, that it was in par a response to the passing of vagu uneasiness over possible politica unsetlement, both, at home an abroad.
