Dealings picked up at the last and transfers approximated 650,000 shares for the two hours. Brokerage optimism broadened with the latest step of the S. E. C. in liberalizing short-selling rules arousing thoughts of much livelier markets in the future. Further modifications of speculative regulations were looked for in the wake of Monday's meeting at Washington of representatives of 1G stock exchanges snd the securities and exchange authorities. Business prospects were still a bolstering influence, it was said. At the same time another look was taken at the foreign scene as German intervention in the Slovak independence row was seen as a possibility, communist resistance to peace in Spain continued and Bolshevik Leader Stalin heaped censure on the heads of the democracies. American Telephone was an isolated gainer, getting up about 3 points at the best to another 1U38- 39 peak. . Moderately resistant were Sears Roebuck, Montgomery Ward, International Harvester, Anaconda, Kennecottr General Electric, du- headliners when the National Safety council gives its annual award dinner this year.

C., Thursday, April 13. .

At the d i n n e r last year Memphis, Tenn., was presented the National Grand award for cities enrolled in the 1937 contest, \yhile Massachusetts won the national state award. Danube River Boat Trip to Be Reviewed on KGLO Book Pilot "The Danube Flows Through Fascism" will be the book reviewed over the KGLO Book Pilot broadcast Monday afternoon at 'i o'clock by Betty Braheny, Muson City library staff. The book was selected because of the international thought stimulated in Mason City by the recent Institute of International Understanding lectures and the international forum being conducted by the local library. The volume is not entirely political but the author, William Van Til, assistant professor of social studies at Ohio State university, is concerned with political trends and the opinion of the people regarding their rulers. He indicates a sense of fear and repression in Europe in the book. Miss Braheny will describe the journey down the Danube river by the Van Tils in an 18 foot boat made of rubber and sticks. She also will explain how the European problems gradually injected their shadows into the trip.

INFLUENZA NOT SERIOUS HERE Dr. Franchere Says -Disease on Increase, but in Light Form A marked upturn in the number of cases of influenza was noted at the beginning of the month, according to the monthly health report submitted to City Manager Herbert T. Barclay by Dr. C. M. Franchere, city health director. The cases have not been severe, according to Dr. Franchere. Of 18 deaths in February, only one was due to influenza. The Isolation hospital, being practically empty, was given a general house-cleaning. Urges More Milk "Through a survey conducted in connection with various problems coupled with our millc ordinance," wrote Dr. Franchere, "I find the consumption of milk in our city has increased from 13 ounces per capita in 1937 to 17 ounces in 1938. This is not as much as it should be, as a minimum amount consumed should be approximately 25 ounces per day, which is slightly less than a quart. "Of course there are some localities that are 'milk-minded' and consume larger amounts of milk, but in an agricultural section such as our own we should strike an average higher than southern states and higher than congested city districts that exist at a lower economical level. It is my hope that we can increase the milk consumption in our community the coming year." Forty births and 18 deaths were reported during the month. Reports Made Miss Mabel E. Sucher, Bacteriologist, reported 224 milk analyses, 24 water analyses, 2 diphtheria, 3 Vincent's Angina, 8 G. C. smears, 62 blood counts and 18 urinalyses. Sanitary Inspector Claude Pfow reported that many garbage cans do not have proper covers. The cans become filled with snow and ice, which makes regular pick ups impossible. During the month 66 samples of milk were collected lor bacterial counts and 40 samples for Methylene tests; 40 sediment tests were made; 18 samples of water were collected for testing; 20 farm inspections were made; 25 plant inspections made; 20 gallons o£ milk turned back, and three milk cans condemned. Inspections were also made at three grocery stores, 10 restaurants, 8 beer parlors, 12 public toilets and 20 complaints were answered. Three cases of scarlet fever were taken care of and four cases of chicken pox were placarded.

O ur pri ccs remained almost at a standstill during most of the session. There was some Rood rain in the southwest over night. The moisture which is occurring over the soulh- west is bound to be more or less beneficial to the ·wheat, and for that reason there is very moderate buying of wheat futures by outside interests.
