MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 19 1931 .__. SCOUTS PLAN TO BROADCAST OVER IOWA U STATION Alpha Phi Omega to Present Another of Its Radio Programs Tuesday. The Alpha Phi Omega, national honorary scouting fraternity with the Omricon chapter of the University of Iowa 'at Iowa City, will give a radio program over station WSUI on Tuesday, Feb. 24, from 9 until 10 o'clock in the evening. This fraternity is made up of scouts and scouters who are in attendance at the university and who are keeping up their active interest in the work thru this fraternity. The purpose of the program is to stimulate interest in the patrol organization" which is really the only actual working basis of a troop. List Many Subjects The various subjects to be covered during this meeting will be "Patrol M e e t i n g s and Hikes," "Tracking" and "My Last Overnight Hike." Prof, A. C. Trowbridge of the University of Iowa geology department, who is a prominent scouter in Iowa City, will also give a talk on "Fossil Collecting." Besides these several talks, there will be scout songs by the group. This group of older scouts have arranged to give programs every other Tuesday evening over this same station from now until the close of the school year. Announce New Club In a recent broadcast they announced their "Iowa Winter Hilling club," the rules of which are that any scout taking a hike of 10 miles or more and making a report of it thru his scoutmaster will receive a certificate of membership to the club. This report should be sent thru the local scout office. This group of scouts will be more than pleased to receive suggestions as to how they may improve their programs.

NEW YORK, Feb. 19. ;!--Big BUI Tilden, professional tenni: player, apparently is just as much of an attraction to followers of the game as Tilden the amateur evei was.

Tilden opened his pro fesaional tour by beating Kare Kozeluh of Czechoslovakia. The dispute will be continued in at least six more matches aa th troupe organized by Jack Curley tours the country.

HOGS MOVE ALONG AT STEADY PRICES SOME GRADES AT BETTER PRICES No Change Seen in Trend of Cattle Market; Sheep Run Large. CHICAGO, Feb. 19. UP)--Reconstruction was the order o£ the day in the hog market for the first few hours. Having wrecked C*je price structure yesterday, buyers were more lenient today and the slow early market moved along at steady prices in the division of light and underweights, while medium and heavyweight butchers sold at strong to lOc higher prices. Weights from 150 to 200 Ibs., sold at 57.35 to 57.40, while 260 to 280 Ib. kinds made $6.50 in the ' f irr-l hour. To help matters a bit, th.3 eleven markets had only 90,800 today, against 115,800 a week ago, which represented a cut of 25,000 head. Again the sheep run fooled the estimators and this time it overran to 19,000, probably because the section of the run that did not arrive yesterday, when supplies fell to 4,135, came today. There were too many lambs on sale today, wherever they came from and prices looked weaker at the outset. B\st grades were held at $9, but thers, were no bids that high in the early trading, and packers bought light and medium weight fat lambs at $8.25@8.50 without serious objection. No change In the trend of the cattle market was in sight today. The plain half-fat short-feds were forced to wait around for a buyer. Bids on even the plain steers and on fat cows were steady, however, with the average of the day before. Hogs closed active, 10-15c higher on weights above 250 Ibs., others slow, steady to IQc up. Cattle finished about steady, but very slow. Sheep'closed around 25c lo\ver on fat lambs, others steady.

Market Notes KS TICKER TAl'E The automotive itocks continue to respond- to favorable advicea regarding the nolor industry, which has provided the chief 'asEs for opUmlsm recently. While arguments pro and con continue to be heard about the- soldiers* bonus bill, practically veryone was of, the opinion that It had lost much of its force a* a market factor. On be other hand, the strength of the auto- notlve division was attributed to the belief hat It would benefit most from the pur- haslng power released by Ihe passage of he bonua bill. Demand for Bricgs Manufac- urlng and Murray corporation was accompanied by reports that lhe«e companies would receive a larger share of Ford's body business. EN-KRAI, MOTORS; SHOWS KALES CAIN In addlllon to Hie strength In Bendi; Aviation in xvhich it has a. s u b s t a n t i a l interest, General Motors was helped by un official reports that sales t h u g far this month have shown a sizable gain over the same period of lajt year. Gllddcn was strong on reports that Its new food subsld- ary would be merged with a large organization In this line of business, and General Asphalt responded with an advance to the court ruling In favor of the company in connection with the suit against the Royal Outch Interests. In announcing earnings of J7.58 a common share last 3-ear, E. J. Cornish, president of the National Lead company, declared that there is no doubt In his mind about the ability ot the company to maintain the present S5 d i v i d e n d and for that reason he will not recommend any change at the meeting to be held today. MAY MAKE TELEVISION NNOUNCE.UEXT SOON De Forest Radio continued a strong spot, reflecting talk ot an Important announcement soon .and the benefit expected to accrue from the court decision against the pooling of patents by the larger companies En Ihe fiald. What the nature of the announcement will be could not be learned but ; t Is possible that It will be m regard to television, about which GO much has been neard recently. De Forest. In addition to be- "ng a manufacturer of radio tubes and receiving sets, occupies an important position In television Ihru control ot the Jenkins Television corporation. RAILS I,AO WHILE WXILIllES ADVANCE During the current upswing which started at the beginning of the month the railroad stocks have been notable for their lagging tendencies while the industrials and utilities have shown persistent strength. The rails, measured by the Dow-Jones average, are practically at the same point as at the beginning of the month, based on the closing prices Tuesdays. while the Industrials showed a gain of around 11 and the utilities about 5 points. This la just the reverse of the trend In the month of January-. In that month the rails were the outstanding strong spots, showing a gain of close to 10 points, while the industrials and utilities showed little chance one way or the other. CHRYSLER CORPORATION SHOWS PROFIT Notwithstanding a loss of 52,258.593 in the fourth quarter of 1930, Chrysler corporation reported a net profit for the full year of 5234.151 In the annual statement. The net. which included income from subsidiaries, was equivalent to 5 cents a share on 4,414,645 shares of no par common slock, compared with a net profit of 521,902,168 or a share on -1.431,465 shares In 1929. STOCK ADVANCE QUIET, ORDERLY Bulls Appear to Have Been Tamed by Recent Setbacks. NEW YORK, Feb. 19. Lfi--- The stock market settled, down to a quiet, orderly upturn today. Bulls appeared to have been tamed by recent setbacks, and willing to proceed at a pace more in keeping with the moderate pace of business recovery. It has been no secret in Wall street that conservative banking interests viewed the tendency to stir up a widespread fever of speculation at this time as unhealthy, and some observers express the oninian that blocks of I stock were ·' - --ed upon the market earlie" week as a warning to ov : bulls. Steels. . . utilities, font! shares and m j;Unneous industrials made moderate progress. Rails and oils were still inclined to hold back. U. S. Steel, Republic, Otis, Colorado Fuel and Byers gained 2 points or more, and Inland, Bethlehem and others were firm. In the coppers and non-ferrous metals, Anaconda, Kennecott, Howe Sound.' International Nickel, American Mefjals, St. Joseph and National Leads, and American Smelting were among issues rising a point or two. National Biscuit, Gold Dust, Borden, General Foods, Consolidated Gas, International and American Telephones, Stone and Webster, American and Continental Cans, and Eastman also sold up 1 to more than 2. A few volatile issues, including case. Auburn arid Worthington, rose t to o. Steel shares moved up further in response to the somewhat brighter news from the automobile industry. Copper shares were helped by the third i-cent-a-pound price increase in recent weeks, carrying the red metal price up to 10 i cents. Call money was again available in the outside market at 1 per cent, altho a little firmer tendency in credit appeared with another advance of % of one per cent in acceptance rates. · STOCK LIST NEW YORK STOCKS.

Foreign news, on which the, market seems to be relying to lift prices out of their rut, was mixed. Australian visible estimate was rather bearish, but the Orient la b u y i n g . Rumors that Ihe Indian situation may be nettled was bullish on Australian wheat and considered as favorable for Canadian shippers, who use silver, when selling lo China. Officially, Italy needed 3,000,000 wheat, for tho balance of tho season- European porl stocks, according to Broomhall, .have decreased considerably and millers there have become apprehensive, especially as the quality of southern hemisphere wheat la reported as none loo good. As. to our domestic situation. Chairman Legge was quoted __ saying Ihe department agriculture has been unable to find additional stocks In Its calculations. This is probably the result of the open winter which has permitted of free marketing. He made reference to the large holdings of the stabilization corporation as a possibility by July 1, which we think, will continue as a' sorl of a damper on bullish Inclinations, based on world conditions. No change IB forecast in prevailing weather conditions. Still favor a trading attitude with purchases preferred only on good breaks. CORN--Buying by shorts and local Irad- ers moved corn upward a f t e r -some hesitation in the morning trading. The strength In w h e a t - h a d some effect. Bookings to arrive were 31,000, but of Ihls 25.000 was from terminals. Shipping sales were 47,000 bushels. News that a record crop was expected In Argentina, was of no effect. The Burtness grain embargo bill stands about a 50 to 50 chance of passage at this session ac cording to Washington advices. Trading was quiet, awaiting weather or other developments.

Price movement lacked uniformity because many laggards were acattereti thruout the list but the tone of the market was distinctly Improved and activity accelerated. The advance or some railroad Issues to the hjgh level of the year suggested that banks were more active than they have been In recent weeks In adding bonds to their portfolios. They have been hesitant due to the uncertainty as to the treasury's plans for f i n a n c - ing, complicated by the soldiers bonus. A m o n g the bright spots En the railroad list were the Boston and Maine obligations.
