(m--By hustling: a little Chicago baseball fans could bid goodbye to both the second detachment of Cubs, and the first squad of White Sox as they departed for their respective training' grounds today. The White Sox party, 27 hands Including six ball players and j prospective ball players, were scheduled to leave for San Antonio, Tex., from one station at 11:30 a. m'., ·while the Cubs had reservations on a California-bound train, leaving an hour later. NEW YORK TEAMS ON WAY SOUTH NEW YORK, Feb. 21. UP)--New York's three baseball teams were on their way toward southern train- Ing camps today, leaving behirid them the mystery of what hap pened to J. Francis Hogan. The big catcher failed to appear yesterday ·when the Giants left and his ab- scence gave rise to conflicting reports. Some had it that Hogan, a holdout, was still at his home in Somerville, Mass., while others believed he merely had missed the train. Several of the Giants and Yankee players were lost in the shuffle of departure and were to catch later trains. The first Robin of the season, Fresco Thompson, left with Coach Otto Miller for Clearwater, ' NAD LAUGHTER * * * -* * * * A ThrlJJing Mystery Story By MILES BUKTON GOLF HELEN HICKS WINS IN FLORIDA PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 21. UT) ·--Helen Hicks of Hewlett, N. Y., today wore the crown of the Florida wpmau's golf championship because . Jjer ball, lying as a cup-lip stymie, was knocked into the hole by Virginia Van Wie of Chicago, after the New Yorker appeared to have lost the extra hole final match. The finalists went to the nineteenth tee after halving all but two of eighteen holes, 12 of them in succession. Both had good drives. The Chicagoan placed her second to the edge of the green': Helen topped a brasste shot, recovered with a good pitch, and hit timidly her approach putt. Miss Van Wie putted 18 inches beyond the cup, only to * see her rival's ball roll up to the edge of the cup to lay her a dead stymie. Virginia chose-to play the stymie in an effort to 'Win with a live instead of taking a safe half in six. Her ball struck- that of Mi Hicks, knocked it into the cup for an automatic five and caromed oCC to the side.

LET US EXECUTE YOUR ORDERS for listed or unlisted SECURITIES . on any Stock Exchange Investment Department FKRST NATIONAL BANK Mason City (Continued From ComJe rage), in miles; the river hank was utterly lonely, deserted, accursed. Dick stood still and listened. Not a sound came to his ears, all was still and desolate. A horror of great loneliness seized him, and it required all his power of will to restrain himself from rushing madly back along the road he had come, back to light and life, away from this dead water and worse than dead marsh. For a moment he stood, trembling in every limb, until his courage conquered the horror that had enfolded him. A high sea-wall protected the marshes from the encroachment of the river, built of earth thrown up from the deep ditches, and covered with coarse rough grass. Up this Dick scrambled, an attempt to discover his exact wherebouts. The wharf could not be the rendezvous; it was long after half-past eleven and there was no sign of those who had summoned him.Yet he was certain, if only from the position of the beacon, which still flashed its intermittent light over the unheeding river, that he was within a very short distance of the spot indicated by the cross on the map. And then, not far away, Just inside the aea- walli he saw a dark shadow looming through the murk. The light of the beacon showed it up fitfully. It was a ruined house. (TO BE CONTINUED) CATTLE DECLINE FEATURE OF WEEK THE EDITOR'S MAIL BAG Contlmietl From Page 2). large surplus of eggs and stabilize the poultry industry. As do all right-thinking American citizens, I emphatically protest this! That American business and 3rofessional men--of which these clubs are supposedly formed--would end themselves to such an exhibi- :ion of wasteful extravagance is beyond my comprehension. There doubtless is a large sur- )lus of eggs on the market. Present egg prices, which have apparently reached the bottom, would confirm his. However, . there are thousands upon thousands of American citi- ens out of employment--many of hem going hungry. Would not humanity be better lerved if these surplus eggs were jiven to the needy, rather than lurled at fat, complacent fellow members of luncheon clubs? Eggs are a good, solid food. Scientists tell us that they contain a wide variety of the nutrients which go to build up the human aody. They tell us also that every child, for health's sake, should not eat less than an egg a day. There are millions of children, especially n the drought-stricken areas, who are not getting sufficient to eat. Why, then, waste healthful food in a useless, silly spectacle of which even school boys would be ashamed. Again I protest! Very truly yours, B. F. THOMAS. TRADE SLUGGISH IN HOG MARKET Closing Swine Sales Steady With Average of Friday. CHICAGO, Feb. 21. '(m--Altho the fall of the hog market In midweek was more spectacular, the feature of the week's trade in livestock was the continued decline-in cattle. Average price of all steers was reduced to $8.31, the lowest since 1D22. Other classes Including fat cows, heifers, calves and feeder cattle lost heavily also, and at the close of trading for the week the market was in poor shape. Only weights steers, suitable for shippers, and hulls, managed to hold their own. Demand for replacement cattle was at a standstill all week, arid prices for light feeders declined to the lowest since the drought period of last July and August. Few loads were sold above 57.25 and these were fleshy kinds, almost ready for slaughter. This narrow outlet for thin cattle had a depressing effect on the rest of the steer market, as it left too many loads of shortfeds on sale each day. ' Closing sales in the hog market were steady with the average of .Friday, but trading was sluggish, due to the absence of any choice light and medium weights for sale. Buyers took 180 to 190 Ib. hogs grading good at §7.50 and other loads of 260 to 290 Ib. heavies at $6.70 to S6.90. Local packers received 7,000 of the run of 8,500 an direct billing. Prices for the close of the week stand only 10 to loc lower than last week-end, in spite of the 25 to 50c decline in lightweights on Wednesday. . Each day since then has seen an improvement, and the top at $7.75 compares not unfavorably to 57.85 last Saturday. Uneven distribution of supplies of lambs this week resulted in extremely uneven markets, but at the close of the week there was little change in the scale of prices. Top stands at $9.00, against 59,15 a week ago, and the average at $7.75 to $8.85 is the same as last week. Native lambs were unusually well finished and the expansion in good grade from Colorado and Nebraska aided the movement of Iambs to shippers and to local killers.

UP)_,Y major upset in the hitherto smooth schetlyle of the Iowa conference basketball race occurred last uight when Buena Vista deviated the powerful Luther five 31 to 28.

At the half the Beavers were Ir front 19 to 15. They led thruout iho second session, one time by seven points, until a late flourish threatened them. Both teams flashed a fast breaking offense. Haldorson and Ritland were outstanding for Luther, while McClintock and Noe led the Beavers. LUTHER--28 Ili'tlund, f .. Haldorson, f Aase, c Bunge, c . . . Hnlvcrson, f; Shaflnnd, g . Hnnson, g ..

Forbes, former president of the Pierce Arrow motor car company, will become vice president in charge of finance of the Oliver Equipment company. Mr. Forbes was associated with Deere and company in various executive capacities from 1911 to 1918. Market Holes BV TICKEK TA1*E Talk is stlli heard In some quarters that the advance has been at an unusually rapid race, but the bulls Friday woie prone tn stress the abundance of capital s e e k i n g employment In addition to c h e a p money and the substantial liquidation In collateral loans rather than the state of bualness. Practically all of tho recognized leaders gave an excellent account of themselves BO far as the con structlve forces ware concerned and the buoyancy In the specialties Indicated that the pools were still active. New hljjhs for the year were established by such pivotals as American Can, rjntte.l Slates Steel, Union Carbide and General Electric and a Jong list "of others. Demand for the latter was stimulated by advice* that its eastern distributor had accepted a 50 per cent Increase tn Its quota of electric refrigerators for 1931 and that Its advertising this year will be mnre than doubled. General Electric. It is understood, is plan- nine an extensive advertising campaign on the electric ironing and washing machines manufactured by Its affiliate, the Klectnc Household Utilities corporation. SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTS HELPING STOCKS Individual stocks were Influenced by special developments. 'American Tobacco was ·strong on the announcement of a substantial gain in sales for January. The increuaii In sales of Lucky Strike clsarels for tbr month was 216,249.000 over the same month last year. In January of 1930 the increase was 689,210.000 over January of 1929. Production of clgarets for the Industry as a whole showed an Increase In the first month of this year as compared with the preceding month but was less than the like period of last year. Suit filed against American Tobacco by a stockholder asltiug that the stock Increase plan adopted more than a year ago be rescinded seemingly had little effect stock markelwlse. McKeesport Tin Plate gained sharply. The company withstood the depression In good style last year and thus far In 1931 has operated at 100 per cent ol capacity. Entry of the Freeport Texas company in the manganese field thru the acaulsion of control!-, ing interest in the Cuban American M a n - ganese corporation was undoubtedly a facur In the strength of the former. CiV.XEKAI. MOTOKS STOCKHOLDERS GAIN Steady accumulation of General Motors common continued thruout the past year and as a result the proportion of stock currently held by investors Is at the highest level since 1919. At the same time the number of common stockholders has reached ft new high in tho history of the corporation. Th' amount of shares available for trading purposes as represented by the stock held in brokerage names has been reduced by close to 50 per cent since February. 1S30. As Jf Jan. :u last the approximate number of stockholders was 2fi9.1fl, an Increase of 50,759 or 23.2 per cent over Feb. 15, l°3 n . The n u m b e r of shares held by investors advanced during the same period to 40,844,200 or 03.9 per cent of the total ls.-mc. 'TtlKS SERVICE HAS KIC.HFIELn CONTROL Indication that Cities Service company has obtained s u f f i c i e n t common stuck of the Ilichfleld Oil company of California, a Delaware corporation, to insure control was seen in a letter received by Rlchlield shareholder from Henry L. Doherty and company, sponsor of Cities service Interests. Thr l-lter Etnte-l that .the response to Cities Service plan lo acquire 500.000 shares ot Richfield c'.mmon on n basis of four shares for each share of Cities Service had met with a "cratlfyln?" response. Altho the o f f e r , made on Jan 25. will expire on Feh. 25. no intimation was given In the letter that it would be extended. LAMSON BROTHERS GRAIN LETTER OK/UN MARKET REVIEW W1IKAT --Western Kansas and part or Nebraska and Oklahoma received some precipitation durtni; the past 12 hours. Late nilvlccs to CIS indicated that the rain In the first named stale was t u r n i n g into snov.*. While our Information la not absolutely convincing, 't seems that the rain and snow, which extended from the eastern boundary of Colorado \vas felt as far cast as the rcfilon around Russell. Kans.. where It may be said lo have met that section of eastern Kansas, \vhich \vns already benefited by rainfall. The trade evidently was not Impressed with the amount of rain received In the a f f e c t e d sections. Prices sold o f f a little, but U complete recovery was made. Strength at Winnipeg was probably a factor in the firmness, as that market secmad to be retlecllnp the need of moisture In the western provinces. Fairly perietal precipitation Is likely, accord- I n K to the weather bureau, over the next 3« hours In the western and extreme southern portions of the north central slates and more is probable In portions of the southwest. However, the forecast does not indicate much rain east of the Mississippi river, where the soil is still dry. Action of wheat next Tuesday will depend largely on weather and other developments over the holidny- C'CUN--Corn \vas unsettled. Commission house selling carried prices o f f nearly a cent early, but there was a fair rally later on resting orders and short covorlnn;. The trade became a Httie apprehensive over possible developments by next Tuesday and n e a r t h e 'close did considerable soilinR. during which March was forced to i new low on the crop. The close was not reassnrlnij. Country offerings were not Ip.r^e altho terminals offered rather freely. Booltlnrs to arrive were 132.000, of which 120.000 was to come from terminals.

BULLS LAUNCH FRESH ADVANCE List Takes Strong Tone Trading Halts for Two Day Shutdown. as NEW YORK, Feb. 21. leaders launched a fresh advance in today's short session of the stock market after stoutly holding the line against a wave of pre-holiday liquidation. They appeared determined to give the lisj a strong tone as trading was halted for a two day shutdown, to prevent any deterioration of bullish enthusiasm before trading Is resumed on Tuesday. Shares were taken in large blocks, and gains of 1 to 3 points were numerous, while a few specialties were sent up 5 to more than 10. Utilities were again conspicuous in group strength, but even the rails, after holding back most of the week, were pushed forward. Transactions for the two hour session totaled about 2,400,000 shares. Sent Up 3 Points. American Can was sent up more than 3 points to a new high. Air Reduction and Allied Chemical showed net advances of a like extent. Auburn Auto was given another whirl, this time getting well above its previous peak for the year at 205, closing at 210%. Other high flyers among the erratic issues were U. S. Industrial Alcohol and Gulf States Steel, up about 5. American Chain advanced about 5. Shares closing a point or two higher included U. S. Steel, Radio, American and Foreign Power, American Smelting, American Telephone, American Tobacco B, Electric Power and Light, Columbia Gas, Chrysler, North American, Radio, Goodyear, Baltimore and Ohio and New Haven. American Smelting and New York Central sold up 3, and Stone and Webster gained 4. News Is Meager. Fresh business and trade developments at the end of the week were meager but further firmness in copper metal prices was a bullish development. Steel mills schedules as reported for the Youngstown area for next week were a little disappointing, showing that operations in the aggregate will remain unchanged at 50 per cent of capacity. The week-end business and trade reviews pointed out further gains in motor production, together with an encouraging report of building c6n- tracted in the first two weeks of the month, as distinctly encouraging-. but against this they indicated little if any change in wholesale and retail trade, failure of the movement of railway freight to show the customary upturn, as reported for early February.
