NEW YORK, (/P)--A dribble of liquidation Thursday washed away part of the stock market's early gains. After rising fractions to around 2 points by mid-day, the market turned irregular and some cop- pers.and steels which rose during the morning slid back a bit along with other groups. Up fractions to a point or so were Sears Roebuck, Marshall Field, Bethlehem Stsel, National Steel, Douglas Aircraft, Boeing, Callahan Zinc, Butte Copper, Du Pont, U. S. Industrial Alcohol and Chrysler. Under pressure were U. S. Steel, Case, Anaconda, Kennecott, New York Central, Southern Railway, General Electric, Standard Oil of New Jersey and American Zinc. Although rising metal prices stimulated demand for shares in this group, some sections failed to hold ground. Grains were o f f , cotton steady. The French franc and pound sterling declined. The bond market was narrow. Stock market transactions approximated 2,400,000 shares. Gurb Market NEW YORK, (ft--Metal shares came lo the fore again in Thursday's curb market and wilh utilities and oils led the general list to a higher plane. Although buying activities in the min [n K group lacked the breadth and enthusiasm of some recent sessions, despite new highs in many melal prices, a number of sizable gains were recorded In rarly share trading. Bunker lull Slil- ivan, and New Jersey Z[nc pushed up a point or better, and fractional improvement was shown by Lake Shore Mines, Mesabi Iron, and Newmont.

Many bond men had looked for a moderate sized offering; to raise additional cash, aside from re-financing. The treas- iry's plan to obtain 550,000.000 weekly hrough increased bill offerings was ireeled with relief in a market which has ecn wobbly since- the reserve board boosted reserve requirements of member banks a second time..

"I said it was going to be gar gantuan and I mean gargantuan! Caroline said lo Janet. "JVhen does he arrive?" Jane answered. "Tuesday. The party will be Wednesday. Knowing Russ a well as I do, he may decide tc leave on Thursday and I don' want him to get away. So, this i: going to be a party as is one." Janet was amused. "What I'd like to know is: How can you give anything bigger than is don every day? Is there anything more rococo than champagni flowing by the easeful or pound; and pounds of caviar? And do wt dress as kiddies or Austrians or do we come as the person we' rather be?" "Does sound dull, doesn't it? Caroline agreed. "Back in Chester we used to nave hen parties and Dutch suppers and barn dances and they vere really exciting but out here a party is just another sweet when you're surfeited on sweets." "I know," Caroline said. "I remember when I thought the Butterfly Ball and the Victory Bal and the Beaux Arts and all the deb parties were pretty tiresome but they seem heavenly to me now." . , "The only thing we haven't had out here is a barbecue," Janet contributed. "That's it! That's how I'll tie things up:" Caroline took her lanky self oul of Janet's porch chair and went to her^pocketbook. She opened it and brought out a memo pad. "Here's where we get to work," she said returning to her chair, "I'm going to open Russ' eyes. I've promised him a circus and he's going to have it. How's this for a guest list?" She handed the pad to Janet. Janet read down the page, flipped it over and repeated the movement several times. Then she looked up astounded. "Caroline Maynard! What a list! You simply can't do it!" "Why not?" Caroline asked calmly. "My husband is an A star, isn't he? Everybody will have to come whether they like it or not." Public Utility and Industrial Stocks Quoted by A. M. SCHANKE CO.

You've got all the children stars- down and the children of actors and actresses. You've go every ingenue and siren in Hollywood." "Sure I have," Caroline retorted inelegantly. "That's the best way 1 know of lo get them altogether for an effect. In groups they're hardly effective. This waj it should make a good show. The barbecue solves the problem." "I can see where there'll be plenty of roasting, Caroline, but that's as far as I can see." "It will be an afternoon and ·ening party. After all, I've loads of room.

Mr. Allstot shot pieces of chalk from between his wife's lips and also small discs from her hand. He also spoke briefly on the dangers of firearms since the advent of powerful explosives. Fred C. Heneman, vice president of the First National bank of Mason City, was also a guest. The Lions report a most enjoyable meeting. down to the swimming pool to the right of her. Standing on tip-toe, Janet could see that already the pool was crowded. Men and girls in bright suits lined the edges of the pool or lounged in the wicker chairs and were served by white-coated Japanese. Janet intended to join that group but to reach them she had to take a path , that led around back of the garages where the children's party was being held. Janet could never resist the lure of baby voices. She decided to join the little ones to see what fun they were having. The older children were being entertained by a magician and there were four little three-year- olds playing in the wading pool. Their two nurses sat nearby on the grassy bank. Janet hailed the children as though she were one of them. "Do you know how to play a Same called big ship and little tugs?" she asked merrily. The children were delighted to have her piny with them and she made a great game of being a ship pulled about by little tugs who squealed and screamed with joy Janet really had herself a lovely time and volunteered to remain with the children while their nurses went to the refreshment tent for tea. She was. alone with them and absorbed in their play and she did not know that she was observed until a shadow fell across the wading pool. "Lady, could you use a lonesome sea dragon?" a deep, pleasant masculine voice inquired. Janet and her small playmates oolced at him. He looked as hough he'd make a very nice sea dragon. Not at all a fierce one in his white and blue bathing suit "·icl a merry smile on his face. Janet said she thought they could, and he lowered himself Jingerly into the foot-deep water. ie established himself, growled leasantly as sea dragons are sup- osed to and noted happily that his performance met with squeals of appreciation. "Say," he said after he had bliged with several exhibitions of norting, "I'll bet it's lots more Jleosant being a governess out here than it is being a movie star." Janet realized with amusement hat he thought she was a gover- icss. "It is," she said gravely. I could recommend you if you'd ike to be one." He sighed. "Confidentially, I vould," he said. "It's no fun beg a guest of honor at a shindig ike this."
