In a slow downward drife leaders conceded fractions to a point and a few rcent climbers, such as American Telephone. dropped around 3 at the worst. Transfers were around 600,000 shares. The fact important selling failed to appear provided a grain of comfort for bullish analysts. Possibility of Germany's intervention in the Czecho-Slovak independence row was sajd to have caused only mild market apprehension . Bonds were irregular, with recently strong La tin-Americans suffering a setback Commodities were .also mixed, as were most European markets Shares inclined to slip included Bethlehem, G e n e r a l Motors, Chrysler, American Telephone, Anaconda, Westinghouse, TJ.

NEW PARTS FOR OLD The next time you catch a grasshopper notice that if you ;old him by one leg he is pretty ikely to escape by giving a hard :ick, leaving his leg in your hand, le seems to know that it is bet- er to lose a leg than to lose his ife--something of the same idea ve humans practice when we ave a person's life by removal of an injured or diseased organ. But that is as far as the comparison goes, for the grasshopper can do something that we nannot do--grow a new part again n place of the one lost. If the rasshopper is not yet full grown, le will have a new leg the nexi ime he sheds his skin. But he oses this power of regrowth after maturity is reached. Other ani- nals, crabs, crayfish, lobsters, and the like, keep this power even when adult. Hence, if a crayfish gets into a fight and an eye is clipped off by an opponent's pincers, it is no serious matter; he gets busy and grows a new one ·ight away. Though, strangely enough, he sometimes makes a mistake and grows a leg in place of the lost eye. Some of the simpler lower ani- nals such as the jellyfish tribe, the sponges and the flatworms possess this power of rebuilding lost parts even to a greater degree than the crayfishes and grasshoppers. Sponges, for example, may be crushed and forced through a fine cloth like apple butter, yet the tiny pieces thus formed will again unite and make a whole sponge. Hydra, a little sac-like animal, may be turned wrong side out and still manage to go on living in proper fashion. Pla- naria, a common flatworm of our ponds and streams, may be cut up into almost any sort of pieces, and } r et each piece will either remake itself into an entirely new but smaller Plariaria, or will promptly regrow the missing parts. We humans who watch these rebuilding processes cannot choose buf envy, for if we lose a leg we must go one-legged to the grave. Yet even our bodies are not entirely without this power of re- growth. Our hair and nails continue to grow throughout life, .but there is no evidence for the popular belief that they keep growing for a time after death. A nerve completely cut in two may grow out again along its former path, thus restoring feeling and action to the part, but most remarkable of all in this power of regrowth is our outer layer of skin. Just below the several dead layers of cells -- the part exposed to the outer world-- ^there is an active growing layer which keeps on reproducing new cells as long as we live. These cells are vigorous at first, but are rapidly pushed outwards, become thinner and thinner and finally die. Their final fate is to be rubbed off by our clothing or the bath towel. Our red blood cells are short- lived too, dying by the millions every hour, but are as rapidly replaced by new ones made in the bones. We can heal up wounds too, but when compared to th( lower animais, : we are pretty POOL at this game of making new parts for old. War would soon lose al its terrors if man could ever learn to regrow lost parts like Plan- aria. Fifty soldiers might spring up from the parts of one torn to pieces by a shell!

I ,_ Only slight production ffalns should be expected of the automobile industry in the next week or tu-o. This is "a very healthy development," as it will tend to briro; dealer stock? io normal requirements for the outset of n favorable spring market, according to Ward's 'Automotive Reports. The independent manufaclurers were responsible for over half of last week's output advance to 84.095 cars and trucks and 78.703 units the week before, the .service said. Although the- three major producers made minor gains, probably the operations step-up, Ward's said, "first manifested itself among the independents because they have been Rearing operations more closely to sales." Hudson, Nash and Studebaker are reported to have important output sains, while Willys and Hupp relumed to production. "Indications are that major manufacturers u-ill augment schedules later this month," it was said. General Motors climbed to 35,165 units last week, against 34,493 the week- before; Ford was up to le,200 .from 15.400. and Chrysler plants BalTied to 20.423 from 19,835, according to Ward's estimate*. Automobile sales have been augmenting their gains last week to continue lti« upturn which "first manifested itself in the last third of February. The aobbrev- iated period of eight days saw substantial advances generally over the shou'- ings of the first two ten-day periods," the publication commented. Indications are for a favorable spring market. U. S. STEEL BUSINESS OFF IN JOSS United States Steel corporation, largest domestic steel producer and industrial organization, transacted a $166,673,733 volume of business In 1038, a smaller total than both of the two preceding years but ahead of 1933. according to the annual rfeport being released Monday. This total dollar volume of business by all subsidiaries last year represented decline of 45.05 per cent from 51,355.549.630 for 1937 and compared with $1.- 083.337.U5 for 1935 and S754.5H.08S for 1933. Edward n. Stettinius, Jr., chairman, termed 1938 "one of the major depression years in the steel industry during the last two decade?, viewing the year as a whole, from the standpoint o! both volume of business transacted and the results obtained." He added, however, that at present "conditions in the iron and steel industry- indicate an improving tendency." He pointed out tliat during the first txvo months of 1939 orders for steel pro- duels as well as production and shipments, have shown some Improvement over the December average and were substantially better than during the corresponding, period in 138." BK.VDIX REPORTS 7 CENTS A SHARE Bcndix Aviation corporation reports consolidated net income for 1933 of $136.048, equal to 7 cents a share on 2,097,- G63 shares of capital stock.

Gross sales aggregated S30.893.547 in 1933 compared to $«.5J4,629 the year before. Sales of the aviation divisions and subsidiaries increased about 40 per cent last yea- over 1937 while sales o£ olher products showed * small Increase, it was reported.
