FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 23 1934 GAME'S BETTER NOW, SAYS HANS , Flying Dutchman Would B Playing Again If He Could Make Grade. By L. S. KMBALL LOS ANGELES, March 23. (Si-Hans Wagner settled 195 pounds o fcone and muscle into a chair in h hotel room, hunched hlg massiv shoulders forward and said: "You hetcha boy, the game i better'n what she used to be." "You'd like to be playing today? "Ah," and the sharp, rugged fea tures of the great flying Dutch man of baseball 20 years ag glowed. "Ah, you bet--but I gues. that's all over. She'* Scientific. "She ain't as rough as what sh used to be but she's scientific to day--teamwork, that's what it i now and they're playing better base ball!" "What about baseball then an now?" the famous old shortstop now.a coach with the Pittsburgh Pi rates, was asked. "Well it was this way--you ar the Cubs and we are playing you in ,the old days. Before the game w get together and someone says so- and-so spiked him and somebody else got bumped. Didn't make nc difference who got spiked. Everj gay on the team was gonna kee working on It until the guy who die it got his. Why some of the boy used to bring files into tie ball house and sharpen up their spikes. No Talking. "We didn't do any talking with you,, either. I played in the major three years before I ever got spok to by anybody on the other team .That wouldn't have happened ex cept some feller hit two homerun in one game. As I passed him walk ing in, I says: '"Nice hits, feller.'. "You know what he said? He tol me where I could go. "How's the pitching today?" ."Good pitching. Of · course, we ain't got no Christy Mathewson bu there's Grove. He's about the fines left hander, except maybe Rube Waddell. Big Scores Then. "But they run up a lot of big scores," his listener suggested. "Well, I seen some good scores when'I was playing. One day we was in Chicago and Chick Fraser wanted to pitch--he's coaching Brooklyn now. Well, the manager didn't want him to but Chick has his mind made up, so he .goes in You know how the game ended? 36 to 6, they got to Chick and the manager just left him in, there and let hiTM suffer."

CHICAGO, March 23. (St--Awaiting definite developments regarding automobile labor troubles and as to stock exchange regulation by congress, grain trade dwindled today, and wheat prices averaged lower. Wheat dealings were the smallest met with in a long while, and ceased altogether at times. Some observers said that until uncertainty regarding the industrial situation was out of the way and that more was known about 1934 new crop prospects only relatively slight price changes were to be expected. Wheat closed draggy, unchanged to % down as compared with yesterday's finish, May 87%-%, July ~ ~ ~ H 4 ; corn %-% off, May 50%July 52%-%; oats at %-}4 decline, and provisions varying from to play, he say, Although the dim. rZZbrtZZTto ate is most suitable for athletics in California--Johnny Baker was a Denison, Iowa, native--the. fact that a player can lose 14 or 15 pounds during a game makes it tough on eastern teams not used to the heat. A week or more of conditioning on the coast is a prime necessity. Although the professional gama is growing, the "money" players cannot replace the college game In interest unless they become as numerous as the amateurs. Baker thinks. And he believes that a good college team and a good pro team would play a mighty even contest. Football's not getting rougher, either, he says. New rules aid in safety. Baker stands highly in favor of the new high school pass rule which allows a throw from any point behind the line of scrimmage. SALES 60 OVER EXPECTATIONS Dun and Bradstreet Report 48 Per Cent Trade Gain Over Last Year. NEW YORK, March 23. (-3")--Dun and Bradstreet said today that "reports received from all parts of the country this week reveal sales of Easter and spring goods surging- above anticipated quotas." "The average gain in retail sales over those of last year," stated the review, "is placed at 48 per cent, while in many instances the 1932 figures have been passed by 10 to 12 per cent. "Because of the prevailing rising markets inventories have been doubled, as retailers are anticipating needs in advance of normal requirements. Wholesalers report even greater gains than retailers, and are scpressing concern ovsr the inabil- ty of manufacturers to supply some grades of the most popular types of nerchandise, because of restric- :ions of operations by NRA provisions." "The course of leading industrial indices," the agency said, "now is showing greater uniformity in reaching higher positions, produc- Upn almost without exception being st definitely higher levels in comparisons with the same period last year."

The volume of Business in wool, however, remained too Imlted, to establish, any change in price levels. In vtew of the extremely small demand, prices of some types of domestic wool ·were slightly In the buyers favor, especial- on very ordinary and inferior offerings. At the same time, there was a decided resistance to price pressure by many holders. Market Notes By TICKER TAPE TOP S4.55 FOR RUN OF 17,000 Outside Markets Stronger, With Gains Ranging Up to 20 Cents. CHICAGO, March 23. UP)--Indications of a reduced supply led hog buyers today to efforts to accumulate supplies and, although initial bids were only fully steady, stubbornness on the part of sellers pushed prices up to 5 to 10 cents higher. Good 190 to 240 pound animals reached ?4.50 in the first hour's trading, with -other loads held for better figures. Top was $4.55. Packers had 8,000 direct of the total day's run of 17,000, and there were 4,000 holdovers. Among outside markets, St. Louis and Indianapolis reported price improvements ranging up to 20 cents with Omaha, Kansas City and Cincinnati reporting less activity, but similarly stronger prices. Cattle buyers were interested mainly in weightier classes and these were bringing prices up close to the season's peak at $7 to $7.65 Eastern killers were active buyers, on the basis of expanding consumer demand from Atlantic seaboarc points. Supplies, however, were light, only 1,500, with 1,000 calves, and even plainer grades of animals brought steady prices. Sheep receipts fell off today at 10,000, but it was too late to offset the heavy runs earlier in the week and prices were not better, best stock bringing ?9 to $9.25.

' The mining and metals were the principal features of the stock session although substantial trading Interest centered in the automobile and steel shares. The latter two divisions were forced* to absorb profit taking at the expense of portions of their best advances for the day ind, while the metals also receded from iheir best prices, differences at the close for the section were small. LESS THAK MILLION SHARES from the broad market aspect, the session was inconclusive as to the problem cf trend analysis. Little more than 1,000,000 shares were . traded and such a volume is considered too small to afford a basis upon which to arrive at a conclusion on the importance of the rally staged. Strict followers of. the charts expressed the viewpoint that the moderate recovery was not enough to change the bearish influences portrayed by the reactionary trend of the past few weeks. In the metal bracket, U. S. Smelting, Howe Sound, Mclntyre Porcupine Mines, Cerro de Pasco, American Smelting and Dome Mines made the most progress while Patlno, American Metal and International Nickel scored fractional net gains fur the day. U- S- Smelting scored the widest change for the whole list in a climb of more than 5 points to above 120 from which level the stock reacted to a close at 110%. Among the motors. Chrysler and General Motors were consistently supported In good trading activity, the former registering a net advance of 1 while the second named was up l^i at the end.

STOCKS REMAIN IN NARROW RUT Late Prices Iregular in Spite of Milk Buying in Few Issues. NEW YORK, March 23. (!ft--The stock market moved quietly today, and was unable to get out of a narrow rut. Despite mild buying in alcohols, aircrafts and some of the metals, late prices were irregular. Rails were generally easier. U. S. Steel, Schenley Distillers, Curtis Wright "A" and Mclntyre wer steady to firm, but Santa Fe am New York Central lost slzabl fractions. Transfers approximate' only 700,000 shares. Doubtful and dull financial mar kets awaited further inspiration from Washington. Stocks were mildly mixed durin,_ the early hours. The ticker tap dragged along at a snail's pace Fractional changes were the rule With the motor labor situation in status quo, notwithstanding report of progress in the presidential nego tiations for settlement, trader showed little Inclination to step ou of line. Business and industrial news con tlnued bright in the face of poten tial strikers. The railway wage sit uation seemed hopeful. There was much timidity in com modity transactions. Grains wer slightly easier as were rubber fu tures. Cotton was up a trifle anc silver did better. Bonds were spotty Foreign exchanges were featureless Stock List Curb Market NEW YORK. March 23. (.V)--Curb trad Ing loofced largely professional today and new stocks developed either important vol ume or significant price changes. Fluctuations over most ot the list fractional. Mining Issues, which featurei yesterday's upturn, quieted down, holding a steady tone. Lake Shore Mines, Pioneer Gold and Wright Hargreaves showed little chang and Newmont was inactive. Utilities drifted. Electric Bond and Shar* had a fair volume with buying and selling orders rather evenly divided. In oils the higher priced issues were qutet. Standard o: Indiana eased moderately.

Traders shared the tendency of operators in other markets tc slow up commitments pending the outcome of labor controversies a "condition which was readily reflected in the small early turnover In the usually popular trading mediums. U. S. governments slipped off a little and high grade corporate issues varied but slightly from yesterday's finals. Loans like American and Foreign Power 5s, Armour and company 4 ^s, Bethleherr Steel 5s, International Telephone 5s, Shel Union Oil 5s, Texas corporation 5s, United Drug 5s and Consolidated Gas 5^s pushed up fractions. Jn the rail group the best showing was made by Great Northern 4i£s up 1, and Missouri Pacific 5s and Northern Pacific is, up half a point each. In the federal list the sarly range was unchanged to 6-32s of a point lower. U. S. BOND QUOTATIONS NEW YORK. March 23. .=PJ--United States government bonds closed: Liberty 3^3 102.26.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter MAJRKET BEVIEW. CHICAGO, March 23.-Wheat--The grain markets today reflected the prevailing uncertainty in the Industrial situation, the result being very evident In the narrow price range and In 3. volume of transactions which was the. smallest over a considerable period. Prices averaged slightly lower but there was no pressure and the slight decline was due largely to lack of Interest. Until at least some of the overhanging problems In the economic situation are solved and more known as to the outlook for thfe new crop, only relatively small price changes are expected. Snow was reported IP parts of South Dakota and braska and at a few points in Kansas. The forecast suggested further precipitation which might be expected to extend Into the central west. Northwest interests were said to be privately expressing some apprehension regarding the moisture situation in the spring wheat belt owing to the lack of subsoil reserve, "Winnipeg was quiet and not much changed. Corn--Corn was equally dull with wheat and prices eased fractionally. Shipping demand was slightly improved, sales being 46,000 bushels but the country was not ln- r.tned to sell in volume, 'although bookings were 71,000 bushels. Oats--Cash demand today was the largest in many weeks but it had no effect on the futures, which m the main followed other grains. Cash sales today were 100,000 bushels, all of it to move out all rail. See no change ahead In' prevailing market characteristics until there Is -something definite one way or other In the news. Batter--Though higher on some grades today, the market has since turned easier. Trading quiet and offerings somewhat more liberal than earlier In the day. Unexpectedly heavy deliveries against March contracts had a depressing effect with a result that there is some accumulation of extras. ERS--Early in the day, cash eggs ihowed some scattered firmness, with official quotations unchanged to ^c higher except for a ^ic decline for cars of firsts. Comment--Deliveries against March con- Tacts is the dominating Influence here at the moment. Perhaps somewhat lower prices on both butter and eggs will prevail for the present, but expect buying be renewed on iny major setback.
