Activity also'^tapered but turnover was around 900,000 shares, largest in more than a week. Among climbers Kansas City Southern preferred and Pullman hit new 1843-44 peatcs. Ahead the greater part of the time were Santa Fe, N. Y. Central; U. S. Rubber, Goodrich, Douglas Aircraft, Western Union-"A", Johns- Manville, Boeing and Philip Morris.

Carrier bonds turned a trifl spotty. RYE REGAINS SOME OF LOSS Off Cent at Times in Chicago Trading C h i c a g o , () -- Rye prices dropped more than a cent at one time Friday, going to new. lows since mid-January, but a mild rally late in the session cancelled part of the loss. The weakness in rye unsettled wheat and oats, although losses in the latter 2 grains were never large and they rallied toward the close. Selling' in rye at the outset came mainly from commission houses, but. it was notable that local professional traders were unwilling to give the market much aggressive support. Some traders felt the disturbing war news from the allied beachhead in Italy caused the selling. Wheat closed Vgc lower to %c higher, May '51.70%, oats were, unchanged to Vic lower, May 79c, dowfl ije was aqwn 'A-'/ac, M $1.28%-%, and barley was Vi-? lower, May $1.21%. .

UBll YANKEE PATROL KILLS 25 NAZIS Daring Assault by 7 Men Is Described By REYNOLDS PACKARD (Combined U. S. Press) With American Infantry, Ami, Beachhead, U.R--Three dough boys of a 7-man patrol returne steady safe and sound after killing 2 Germans behind the enemy line in the bloodiest American patro action since the beachhead lant ings. Two members of the America patrol were killed and 2 others were wounded. The unwoundei men succeeded in bringing bac their injured comrades under cov er of smoke grenades which the tossed every 50 yards, alt'erhatin with regular grenades as the wriggled through the ditches o Mussolini's reclaimed marshlanc under a terrific enemy machin gun and mortar barrage Cpl: Richard. Fisco, 23, who once worked in (be reptile stciio of the Barrett park zoo on State Island, bnt who always had a pas sion for collecting butterflies, led the way back to the American lines. He carried the wounded pa tool leader. i The patrolmen who weren wounded are Pvt. Thomas Dres sel, 24, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., an Pvt. Jesse McKnight, 22, Bong ham, Texas, both former farmer Fisco told me that 'of 25 Ger mans killed by the patrol, 8 wcr ia foxholes,; 12 were in a barn, were manning a machinegun nes hidden in a haystack, and 2 trie to rush the patrol. "We started out--our 7 man pa r °l--at 11 in the morning," Fisc said, "and crawled for fi hours j a ditch for 3,000 yards. At 5 p. m we spotted the enemy in the fox holes only 150 yards away. W advanced another 50 yards, then of us took flank positions and th other 5 made a direct attack. On of our men rushed the barn an kicked the door open and tosse' in hand-grenades. v . "Somebody fired some lead a aim, bat he'already had killed 1 Germans in the barn. I was going after the fox-holes which combed with my tommy gun. killed at least 8 krauts as'that' the number I saw. I started firing and they never once budged again in those foxholes. Dressel accounted for 3 ma chine gunners, which-he rushed single-handed. Two riflemen wh attempted to interfere with the patrol were wiped out by McKnight. "One of the' most tragic episodes of the entire patrol," Fisco said, "was that one of our men couldn't walk. We tried to carry aim, but he^ refused, saying.'you fellows escape, I'm finished, so I'll stay behind and kill as many jerries as I can.'" Another member of the patro who was wounded in the righ arm shifted his revolver to his left and kept on firing. Fisco said that to withdraw from the enemy position was the hardest part. The men tossed put smoke grenades, pulling back behind the smoke, - May .31.02 ,75c-Sl Hides .lr'Br«, 15 Ibs down Security Markets to Be Closed on Lincoln Birthday TM , , commodity - W-- Security and markets throughout e s r o u g o u t the United States will be closed Saturday, Lincoln's birthday Yanous livestock reports will be issued as usual fay the W.F.A.

"Behind our camp is a range of mountains" covered with vegetation of all kinds ·Below them are the tops of the tall palm trees and then the beach and th« blue Pacific. "The natives," he writes, "are a small race of people. The men stand about 5 feet tall but they are very .strong and can do a lot of work when they want to. In fact, one of them can do as much work as 2 of our men. I am glad. they are our friends and not our enemies. . "Gathering^ cocoanuts seems to be the main occupation here There certainly, are plenty of them: In fact, they are more dangerous to us than the Japs," he writes adding that he would hate to have one fall on his head since the trees are 70 feet high. "The jungle country is beautiful but very treacherous. Some people wonder why the progress of the war in this area is so slow. If they could just see what our men T have to go through, they would know why a soldier can only go about 2 miles in a day.
