S. department of agri- :ulture-- A wailing attitude prevailed peneraliy in he B'ostoD woo] market. Since t_he market was very nearly cleared of old domestic wools, Boston houses were centering their nterest in developments thought lo j;ive ome idea as to the vahic of the new clip. They were carefully watching price trends in iRn wool markets and conditions in the manufacturing and goods branches of the '.omestic wool Industry. Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M. Scfcanfce ana Company, Telephone 1300, Mason City. CHICAGO--WHEAT--Cables from abroad were quite strong JConday and our market apain opened a ilttle higher but met commission house selling of wheat on resting orders. Prices soon reacted and during rest of the season general but moderate sellmg materialized with occasional rallies, carrying prices down to about a cent under Saturday's close. Winnipeg -was strong early on foreign cables but later selling; also weakt-ned pr:ces. There vras no precipitation of consequence over the week-end. A local rrop expert gave ihe condition of winter wheat in Kansas at 6ft as a inst 60 a year ago and Si Dec. 1 iast year. Oklahoma was piven at 65 or same figure as a year ago, Nebraska 75 vs. 78- The July-May difference held around 10 with no spreading of importance, Broomhall said the Australian wheat surplus at even 95,000.000 shows Ausrtalia having shipped out 37!~ million or nearly -10 jcr cent of the lolal in ihrce months' time. Export business w* i-Iaced at 7."0.000 bushels. The amount of outside buying in v.-heat Monday O n the serious foreign political situation was disappointing and the action of the market suggested t\wt holders of long wheat were willing to liquidate when price upturns appeared probable. CRN--Corn prices were sicatly parly fin small commission house buying but later weakened in sympathy with wheat and local selling. No Argentine corn was received at eastern markets last r.-cek but approximately 30,000 arrived in California. One hundred forty-six cars of corn were received today and about 110 sold on consignment with prices weak. Cent St El 6 pet pfd {$23 par) Cent.

W?--The curb exchange fol- owed the seneraily lower trend ol other inaacial markets Monday. Losses of small fractions up to a point were numerous in all groups with some the inactive specialties moving in a wider nge.

The genera! run of utilities and oils de- lined fractionally. American Super Power, Creole Petroleum, Electric Bond and Share nd Gulf were among issues in supply. STOCKS STEADY IN LATE TRADING Specialties Help to Bolster Market Nervous Over War Scare. NEW YORK. (JP)--Specialties stepped in to bolster a wavering, war-nervous stock market Monday. Various aviation, sugar, agricultural, oil and mining issues came into the buying range after the list had been shaded or cancelled as trading approached the final hour. Wright-Aeronautical advanced 9 points. Case got up more than 3 and ins up to a point or more were shown by Douglas, Curtiss-Wright, American Sugar Refining, Great Western Sugar, Seaboard Oil, International Harvester, Deere and American Smelting. Allied Chemical dropped 4, Johns- VT.anville was off 3 .and Westinghouse and Corn Products yielded about 2 each. Lesser losses were registered by Chrysler, General Mo;ors, American Telephone, Consolidated Gas, Santa Fe, Loews, N. Y. Central and Northern Pacific. The late tone was irregular. Transfers approximated 2,300,000 shares. French francs and other foreign currencies were rather weak in relation to the dollar. Bonds were lower. While foreign observers in the financial district generally felt that European hostilities would be avoid:d, it wag realized an explosion was entireJy possible on the Franco-German border. Curb Market Bond Market NEW YORK, i.? 1 .'--Declines were general in he bond market Monday as investors and raders remained uneasy over repercussions C Germany's troop movements and treaty 'iolations. ' U. S. government obligations reflected the lesitancy by backing dowp l-32nd to around 5-32nds by a late hour tbis morning.

International Telephone 5s dropped more nan 4 points at one time under liquidation irohably prompted by anxiety over the com- lany's foreign properties.

Inquiries resulted finally in the information that Miss Marsh and a gentleman were in a rear room with Mr. Edmond and that Miss Dahl was to join them. She followed the attendant to a small apartment lighted by a single high window. At a table, covered with black' felt, she found Wilma and Ali Babba conversing with an imposing, frock-coated gentleman who proved to be the proprietor of Edmond'a . "You're just in time to see something pretty, Miss Dahl," Wilma explained, as Thora seated herself in ie chair Mr. Edmond placed next ;o his own. The girl opened a leather case she was holding in her lands and passed it across the table. That's the bracelet I was telling you about. It's just been finished." Thora drew a quick breath as she gazed down at the flashing ornament. She had never seen anything ike it. A solid circlet of square-cut stones, huge . . . so they seemed to her . .-. scintillating and sparkling afresh with every of her land. "Take it out and look at it ... it won't bite," Wilma said laughingly. "I'm afraid to." "Here .. ." Mr. Edmond lifted the bracelet from the case and laid it on the table. "So . . . against this black. t brings out the brilliancy, does it not?" "It's marvelous," Thora sighed. Tm still afraid of it." I believe that we never have had anything finer in our hands," the eweler admitted. "We are quite jroud of it. When do you wish it delivered, Miss Marsh? Or, per- laps, you. are going to place it in a bank vault." "I'm going to take it home with me now . . . and the two large rings." "But, my dear Miss Marsh . . . " Edmond expostulated, "do you not ;hink it would be better and safer to have them delivered by regular messenger . . . the insurance and all, ·ou know." "I don't see why," Wilma returned coolly. "I'm going to want them be- ore very long now. I'll pop them in he safe as soon as we get home . . . they've been there for a long time, think." "I believe that Mr. Edmond is _ight, Wilma," Babbas advised. "I don't like the idea of you driving around the country roads with those ewels. After all, that bracelet's a mall fortune, don't you know." Thora found herself thinking that Ali Babba had assumed his foreign manner, together with the monocle. "Nonsense!" Wilma exclaimed impatiently. "I have Pat with me, and tfiss Dahl, too. I won't be getting out of the car for anything after we eave the store, and we'll be home ong before dark." Edmond shrugged his immaculate boulders, closed the case containing .he bracelet and handed it to its iwner. "As you will. You have the rings n your bag?" "Yes." Wilma peeped into it to make sure. "And here goes the bracelet," she added. "No one knows that I'm taking it today. So if there s any trouble between here and Fair Acres, we'll know where to look for he tip-off man. Lucky for you, Alec, you're leaving town. You should lave a water-tight alibi." She closed her bag with a laugh, as she made ready to leave. "I meant to show you the ring Miscellaneous I'OTATO MARKET. (Monday Market) CHICAGO, in--U. S. department of agri- :ulture--· Potatoes IS"; on track 242; tolal U.

(.B--The intercollegiate farewell to indoor track meets conducted on the metric standard, marked by Manhattan's third straight I. C. A. A. A. A. team championship conquest, forecasts the end of another noble athletic ex periment. It was learned authoritatively Monday that the amateur athletic union, last American stronghold of the metric system, probably will discard it at the conclusion of the current Olympic year. The overwhelming collegiate sentiment for a return to the old standards of measurement, with the 100 yard dash and the mile taking the place of the 100 and 1,500 meters as classic fixtures, is certain to be reflected in the next A. A. U. conven lion. Alec gave me," Wilma explained to Thora as they sat side by side in the car on their way back to Fair Acres. "I think, though, I will wait until we get home." "That would be better," Thora agreed. "I'm quite anxious to see it, though." '"It is a beautiful stone . . . rather odd. Alee was very particular about the setting he wanted, so I advised him to turn it over to Edmond. He is very well satisfied with it, so I know it must be a good job. Alec is rather . . . fussy. About things of that sort." Wilma leaned back and laid her head against the cushions with a sigh. ''You look .tired, Miss Marsh," Thora observed sympathically. "I'm all right . . . and don't call me Miss Marsh, when we're alone. 1 don't like it." She turned her head so that she could look at the other girl who reclined in her corner of the seat. "Thora . . . I wish you'd tell me something, if you don't mind." "Of course. What is it?" "Were you ever . . . in love with j anyone?" Before Thora had time to ' answer this blunt question Wilma interrupted herself apologetically. "I'm sorry. I don't know why I asked you that. Forget it." ''But I don't mind telling," Thora smiled. "I never have been . . . I think-." "Then you haven't. You're the sort of a girl who would be sure. You'd have to be sure . . . and, then, you'd never change your mind. You're like that." "Why not?" "Only because the old idea is out. moded now. You'll find it out sooner or later," she finished with a. frown, opening the jag that lay on her lap and searching for her cigarets. Thora watcher her intently as she lighted one of the white tubes and tossed the match through the open window. The older girl was thinking again how closely Wilma resembled her father in her facial expression and manner of speaking. That it was the first time she ever had spoken in so intimate a fashion. Thora suddenly took her courage in her hand. "Then you mean . . . you're not very sure?" "Not to my way of thinking," Wilma admitted with a mirthless ittle smile. "Why should I be?" "To be happy." "Now that is provincial! People don't marry for happiness these days. You're probably thinking of our father-and mother." It was perhaps the first time Thora ever had put that question to cerself in concrete form. Were Hjalmar and Mary Dahl happy in their life together? Their daughter was unable to recall a single ges- :ure of affection between the two. They seemed to take each other for granted and . . . just lived. It had been much the same way with herself, when she was at home. Always taking things for granted . . . almost always. Wilma broke in on ier train of thought by saying, in her direct fashion: "I know that my father and mother never were happy while they were together. It may be inheritance . . , but I don't know of any rcarrjed people who are very wild about each other. You don't have to be these days." "But why?" "Because you don't have to stick it out if you don't like it." "And you feel that way about your own marriage?" "Why not? It's merely a matter of common sense." "I think it's dreadful . . . I do! Marriage ought to mean everything .. . something for life. I would want to be so ... sure." "Didn't I tell you so ? ' Wilma smiled tolerantly. "You think I should be mad about Alec. I think I am ... as nearly as I could ever be. He appeals to me more than any man I've ever met. I feel almost silly about him at times, even. He likes the things I do ... to travel, do things. Maybe I am a thrill hunter . . . but I never could settle down around here and do the stuffy things the rest of them do." (TO BE CONTINUED) ^ Sports in Shorts By ASSOCIATED PKESS. WEEK-END BEVD3VV.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sixth of a series concerning the boys' state high school basketball tournament opening Thursday with 45 sectional meets. Today's story deals with the sixth district with tournaments at Creston, Greenfield, Guthrie Center and Leon. By L. E. SKELLEY Associated Press Sports Writer. DES MOINES, UP)--It's Creston and Diagonal against the field in the sixth Iowa basketball district. Creston, capably equipped with championship material, appears a cinch to win class A honors at its own sectional, and Diagonal, featuring Corwin Bonebrake, all-state performer, seems a certainty for class B honors at the same tournament. It. will take an upset of titanic proportions to halt these southwest Iowa teams short of the final meet at Des Moines March 26, 27 and 28. Win Conference Crown, Creston won the Little Six conference title with a team that is fortified wih a group of reserves prac- ically on a par with the regulars. James Freeman, Creston sports editor, picks his team to win the sectional meet, but qualifies the choice with the assertion'that Lorimer has a "bare outside" chance to halt the Panthers. Diasonal needs no Introduction to Iowa basketball fans. The little school provided most of the thrills at the state tournament at Cedar Falls last year. Its biggest conquest came when it downed East Sioux City, 1934 champion, in the second round. Hits Terrific Pace. Diagonal has hit a terrific pace since late fall. Just when it appeared the team might become stale the heavy snows interfered with the schedule to. give the boys some needed rest. They're back at it again with the same furious rush that should carry through to the finals tournament. Murray, which also went to Cedar Falls last year, has been switched to the same sectional as Diagonal this winter. Murray, however, doesn't have the class it had a year ago, and should not trouble. Diagonal. Leon Kates Tops. Leon and Mt. Ayr are the best teams in Class A at the Leon sectional. The home town club is awarded the edge and likely will move on to the district meet next week. Earlham has the call at the Greenfield tournament, although Atlantic may cause trouble. The latter finished at the bottom of the Little Six race, but always has been a strong tournament team. Guthrie Center and Perry expect to battle for Class A honors at Guthrie Center. Minburn is the .Class B selection, having a ball team that ranks as capable of giving the Class A teams a few lessons.
