Commission houses as usual had wheat to sell on resting orders but some of this was absorbed by local traders who were inclined to be a little friendly. There was very little influence in the action of Liverpool, Broomhall safd there were ir.oderate- purchases of Argentine wheat bj- the United Kingdom including an afloat cargo. Modem Milter says that he- cause of the unusually heavy snows for this season of. the year which were received last week, moisture conditions in Oklahoma and Kansas are now regarded as the best since seeding-. We consider tho Cromwell statement Friday of importance and it there Is a continued upward trend; in commodity prices In general, we be- }icvc there is a possibility of moderate but slow appreciation in wheat values. Corn; The corn market was easy early under small local selling. Later traders replaced their early commitments and prices advanced moderately helped by the firmer trend in wheat. No export business was reported. Wise Men Schedule Stag for March 16; Hear David Olson A stag party scheduled for March 16 was announced at the dinner meeting of the Wise Men's club in the Y. M. C.

Again there was an assortment ot highs for the past year and activity broadened on the advance. Transfers approximated 1,000,000 shares. The return of buying courage to jpeculative forces, brokers said, was largely the result of reap- praisement ot spring business prospects and the. waning of fears over European political developments. Optimism over prospects for at least a moderate spring business upturn and lessening of worries regarding foreign affairs, brokers said, had much to do with bringing traders back into buying ranks. Aiding sentiment was a revival of demand for American stocks in London. U. S. government securities led the bond department on a forward tilt. Commodities were irrgularly higher. Shares posting new highs for 1938-39 included International harvester, D e e r e , Caterpillar Tractor, Greyhound, American Telephone, United Fruit and Philip Morris. Attracting support were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem, Chrysler, Goodyear, Santa Fe, Great Northern, Westinghouse, U. S. Gypsum, Montgomery Ward, Phelps Dodge and Consolidated Aircraft. Climbing as much as 3 in the curb were Pittsburgh Plate Glass, Scoville Manufacturing, Sherwin Williams and Humble Oil. 38 '.i 74V- 30 13ii 19 V« C'i 23'.i 27 49 ',i 1H 8V, SO'.k 641 SH 23!', Supplementary List of Stock Quotations Supplied by.

This Week's Safety Lesson One of a series of 15 to be broadcast over KGLO by the £ Clausen-Worden post of the American Legion each ^ Thursday evening. Mason City high school students will draw on this material for weekly classroom discussions. SPEED, RESTRICTED ZONES By E. A. Conley, Assistant Highway Patrol Chief LESSON No. 5 Why is It that so many lives are being needlessly sacrificed each year on pur highways. This question is asked many times every day. Why? Because, we are all vitally interested in this accident problem. We realize this danger effects us alL We would Eke to do something about it. I really believe the solution of this problem is within our power. However, we seem to ltfok at it in rather a fatalistic manner. We feel that we are more or less immune to the dangers that exist, that nothing will happen to us. We are good drivers. We -would laugh if someone would predict that we would be involved in an accident today because we really believe that we are good drivers and that we comply with all of the safety requirements. We continue driving down the road with one hand on the -wheel and at a high rate of speed. No, nothing is going to happen to us. It is the other fellow who is going to have the accidents, the other fellow who does not comply with the law, the other fellow who is a poor driver. But who is this other fellow? This other fellow is you and I and every other person who operates a motor vehicle on the highways. Exaggerated Opinioiu We think we are good drivers but statistics prove that'nine out of every ten persons involved in motor vehicle accidents never were involved in one before. It is true that only 10 per cent of our motorists are ever involved in accidents, but remember this, this 10 per cent keeps shifting and unless we use proper caution, we may find ourselves in this group. In checking the driving ability of a large number of self-styled good drivers it .has been found ·that they have developed a number of little habits in their yeais of driving, which singly may seem to be of a harmless nature but collectively and committed continuously contribute in a large measure to the dangers that already exist on our highways' today. Dangerous Little Habits If motorists could be made to realize the dangerous situations these little habits create, I am sure they would hasten to correct them at once. Or must we learn the hard way, by being involved in a bad accident? In talking to many victims of motor vehicle accidents, they will usually reply, I don't know how it happened. No, they do not know, because they never thought that it would ever happen to them. Speed is one of the worst contributing factors in the cause of motor vehicle accidents and by far the highest contributing factor in the cause o£ fatalities, yet when one of these speed demons is stopped by a highway patrolman they feel very indignant and give the impression that they have been needlessly stopped. Their first remark will be: "There is no speed law in Iowa." The patrolman will answer: "The law does not specify any number of miles an hour but it does require that you drive in such a manner that you have your car under control at all times." Motorist Will Argue The motorist will reply that he had his car under control, that he is a safe driver, that he has never been involved in an accident and it is almost impossible to convince him that he is creating a'danger- ous hazard by his fast driving. Some drivers think It is a demonstration of skill to drive fast, take corners at a high rate of speed, to cut in and out of traffic and to pass everything on the road. "Accident Facts," published in 1936 says, in one sense, every motor vehicle accident occurs because a motor vehicle, some other vehicle or a pedestrian is traveling too last for conditions. The higher the speed, the worse the accident and over 50 miles an hour one accident ic 11 is fatal. Anyone who believes that he has his car under control doing 80, 70 or even fiO miles an hour has a very exaggerated opinion of his or her own ability. I honestly believe that anyone operating a motor vehicle over 50 miles an hour is operating that vehicle in a reckless manner! If you wish to contribute to highway safety, eliminate speed from your driving habits. MATINEE TO BE GIVEN SATURDAY "Gondoliers" To Be Presented for Children;' For Adults Tuesday Students of Holy Family and St. Joseph parochial as well as those of the 13 elementary and junior high schools will have the opportunity Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock to take a trip to the Italy of two centuries ago--the Italy of romantic gondoliers and moonlit canals as they listen to the lilting strains of the Gilbert-Sullivan operetta, "The Gondoliers," at the high school auditorium. Presented by the vocal students of Mason City high school under the musical direction of Miss Eilen M. Smith and dialog direction of Miss Mary Sherman, the operetta offers an amusing plot, brilliant as well as authentic costumes and an able cast and chorus. The operetta is in two acts, the setting for the first on the Piazet- ta in Venice, and the second, the pavilion in the Palace of Barataria with an interval of three months between the two. The story concerns the complications which ensue before the real identity of the King of Barataria is established. Marco and Guiseppe Palmier!, "the pink and flower of the Gondolier!." played by Lee Lusted and Clark Sweetser, discover that one of them is the King of Barataria and consequently married to Casilda, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Plaza- Toro, played by Bill Wright and Jane Satter. This discovery comes, however, just after the marriage of Marco to Gianetta, played by Wilma Walters, and Guiseppe to Tessa played by Joan O'Neil. Virginia Bringolf in the role of Casilda, hears this news with equal dismay for she is secretly in love with Roger Larson as Luiz, drummer boy of her father.
