Sitting in the lobby of the Pennsylvania hotel in New York on the morning of the opening day of the series, a middle-aged man approached Graney: "Hello, Jack," said the stranger, "I always knew you'd make good." In a flash Jack remembered the man. It was none other than the same minor league manager who had predicated that he'd never be a ball player. Total Kentucky Derby stakes winnings ..$215,800 The real "class" of this year's Bradley derby quartet, so far as breeding is concerned, is Blue Again, a colt by Black Servant- Blossom Time, and therefore a full brother to Blue Larkspur, which placed fourth'in the 1929 derby but which proved to be Bradley's best money-winner, acquiring $272,000. Fine Winter Kuii. Boy Valet, by Black Servant- Beach Talk, has had a fine winter campaign; Bazaar is one of the star fillies entered and was Bradley's jest two-year-old money winner ast year, and Baker's Dozen is the Bradley "dark horse," withdrawn from racing last year after one start in which he ran second. The first time Graney went south with the Cleveland club Larry Lajoie was manager, and one day Jack had to pitch batting practice. He was as ·wild as a March hare and it took about 10 minutes for each batter's turn. Finally-Lajoie stepped to the plate, drew the customary line with his hat and told Jack in no uncertain terms to get the ball over. "Here was the manager of the team, the great Nap Lajoie," Jack told me later. "If I could strike him out, I thought I'd have something swell to write to the boys back home about. . "So I wound up and let go with everything I had, and kerplunk, the ball.hit Larry right on top of the head and down he went" like a log. When he revived Lajoie said he wanted to see me in his room after the practice. I went to him, Tlid you got.a lot. of stuff,' he said, 'but all wild men'belong out west,' so he bought me a ticket to Portland Ore." ^_ Nila and Husband Firm in Denials of Split Between Them 'NEW YORK, April 13. UP)-Friends of Nila Cram Cook, former Gandhi disciple, were firm in their denials today that she and her hus- hand, Albert N. Hutchins, had separated. The Iowa poetess merely desired seclusion to work on a book and Hutchins has gone to Delaware for a brief visit with relatives, they explained. Hutchins has returned to New York.

Corby will receive some stiff competition in the high jump from a teammate, Reubelin, who reached 5 feet 6 inches while jumping for Northwood last year. William Martin, Negro broad jump artist, is improving steadily in that event and is the Mohawks' chief power at the long leap. "Babe" Bellows, one of the few vets left over from last year's squad, will try his hand at several field events, specializing in the javelin. The Heneman brothers are set to start in the middle distances, both probably starting in the 440 yard dash. Charlie Chin will probably be at the post in the sprints.

Lamson Brothers Market Letter REVIEW Wheat--Wheat was under pressure of liquidation early, prices making a new low OB the current movement, but the market later recovered all losses and closed a fraction higher than yesterday when news changed for the better. The possibility existed that the selling of the past two sessions had been overdone, as there was some covering at times, but the rally was generally credited to Washington news indicating the possibility of congress adjourning by May 15 and that the commodity exchange btt might not be acted upon at this session. The late news from Washington that the senate had adopted an amendment to the revenue bill which reduces the tax on commodity trades from 5 cents, the present rate, tc 1 cent per SlOo of valuation, was well received and closed the market steady to strong. Interest in the market was larger than-of late, which was natural in view of the developments of the day. Little attention was devoted to routine news. Dry ·weather generally prevailed over the greater part o£ grain belt- with some adverse reports appearing while the forecast suggested unsettled conditions in the northwest. Export demand for ilanltobas was slow, with Winnipeg averaging about unchanged while Liverpool was firm in the face of liberal shipments from the southern hemisphere, Coarse Grains--Coarst grains followed wheat although the recovery in oats was less vigorous than In corn. According to official estimates on farm reserves there la 428,000,000 bushels qf corn held in Illinois Iowa and Nebraska while it is figured that these three states probably have 200,000.00( bushels of corn in cribs pledged as collatcra for government loans. Selling has probabl run its course for the present and we expect steadier markets unless there are adverse developments. Butter--In general, we would call today's market firm, even at the advance. E SKS --Today's spot market is holding steady to firm at the quotations which are unchanged except for the Vic advance ol current receipts. Comment--It would seem that both butter and eggs will continue their present two-sided tendency pending further developments. How unfair that some must strive to be somebody while others fee' that way without doing a darned thing:.--Wisconsin State Journal HOG MARKET RULES 5 TO 10 CENTS HIGHER GRAINS RALLY IN CLOSING TRADE Advance Briskly at Report Exchange Restrictions to Be Put Off. CHICAGO, April 13. (#--Prompt rallies took place in all the grain markets late today following announcement congress was expected to adjourn May 15 without further commodity exchange restrictions. Helping the late recovery of grain values were forecasts of silver legislation.

Market Notes By TICKER TAPE "The first quarter of 1934 has seen the greatest advances la Industry since the de- gression was routed," was the almost unanl- nous message of corporation heads to stock- lolders Wednesday at annual meetings. Not only has the first quarter of this year shown substantial Improvement, according to these reports, but indications point to a continuance of this up-trend. Outstanding declarations of optimism were found Jn remarks addressed to stockholders of such companies as westin s house Electric and Manufacturing, General Foods, Republic Steel, American Radiator and Standard Sanitary and Continental Can, which, raised its dividend rate- BEST JN LONG TIME "It looks as If conditions -will be better than we have had for a good -while and we will make some money In the second quarter," said T. SI. Glrdler, president of Republic Steel corporation. "Earnings of General Foods corporation for the first 1934 quarter are substantially ahead of 1933 period," said C. M. Cheater, president. American Radiator experienced a 48^ per cent Increase In first two months of 1934 against the like 1933 period, and March will show sharper Improvement, said. R. J. Hamilton, secretary and treasurer. Orders booked by Westlnghouse Electric were 5T per cent greater in the first quarter of this year as compared with the like period of 1933, eald F. A. Merrlck, president. OTHERS REPORT INCREASES Other companies joining In the ranks of those experiencing improvement were American Rolling Mill company, Atlantic Refill' ing company and Barnsdall corporation. American Radiator and Standard Sanitary corporation: R. J. Hamilton, secretary and treasurer, told stockholders that the loss as a result of the first two months of operations this year was very small compared with last year. He pointed out that the company ordinarily is in the red in the early months of the year due to seasonal nature of Its business. "Gross sales were 48% per cent larger in the first two months compared with a year ago acd March will probably tend to increase this figure," he said. American Rolling Mill company: "March was the best month for the company since 1929," said officers at the annual meeting. "A3 a result the company will show a substantial net profit for the first quarter. Current operations o£ the company are at 67 per cent of capacity, higher than the average for the steel industry-" Atlantic Refining company: Operations were profitable for the first quarter against a net loss of 53.127,000 in like 1833 period, it was announced.

MARKET INFORMATION 825 I. O. O. F. Bldg. Phone S4S STOCK MARKET MARKING TIME Active Buying Flurries in Specialties Only Feature of Dull Trade. NEW YORK, April 13. UP}-Stocks mostly marked time in dull and routine trading today. Active buying flurries occurred in specialties and a number of preferred shares but leading 'industrials, rails and utilities were narrow. The late tone was steady. Union Pacific dropped 3^« points in a thin market. Steadiness predominated in U. S. Steel, American Telephone, General Motors and American Can. Transfers approximated 1,150,000 shares. With the exception of a wide variety of preferred stocks, which again responded to increased demand, the equities list was relatively dull. Most of the so-called leaders held to a fractional range. Speculative hesitation was attributed partly to the strike situation in Detroit, weakness of commodities and lack o£ stimulus from Washington. Grains had a late recovery after May barley had reached a new seasonal low at 40 cents a bushel. Rubber, cotton, silver and copper lagged. Bonds continued to register quiet improvement. Sterling dropped about a cent in terms of the dollar. Stock List Curb Market NEW YORK. April 13. UP)--The curb continued quiet today but had a firm undertone and scattering improvement occurred, particularly among specialties and industrials. Trading in Lluby, McNelll and Llbby was active, though the price showed little change. The company's report for the recent fiscal year showed earnings equal to $1.34 a share on the common against a substantial deficit in the previous period. Great Atlantic and Pacific rose a couple o' points coincident with appearance of its latest sales statement which reported a gain of 8.1 per cent in dollar volume, although tonnage was down moderately. Demand for some preferred stock was fairly Insistent. Montgomery Ward's "A" shares approached their high for the year in the earlier transactions. Such Issues as American Cyanamld "B," Shenvin Williams, Swift and company. Standard Oil of Indiana and Cord corporation were quiet. Utilities and alcohols made narrow changes. NEW TORK STOCKS.
