CASH IN ON STOCK PROFITS Stock Market Rally Is Reported Frozen New York, (IP)--Profit cashing in recently strong rails froze the stock market rally Friday although most leaders were only slightly frost bitten. Accounts were trimmed for protection over the coming weekend and holiday. Many Wall Streeters retired to await further ne\vs from the Pacific battle of Trufc and European developments. Sustaining of the president's anti- subsidy veto and expectations the white house would perform similarly on the tax bill helped confuse speculative and investment sentiment. Trends began to waver niter a moderately active and steady getaway. While there were exceptions, losses of fractions to a point or so predominated near the close. Transfers ran to around 700,000 shares. On the offside most of the time were Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, Atlantic Coast Line, Chesapeake Ohio, Chrysler. U. S. Steel, Sears Roebuck, Westinghouse, Standard Oil (N. J.), Union Carbide, J. I. Case and Union Carbide.

Mrs. Shaw Leaves Sum to Irish London, !()--George Bernard Shaw believes that his play "Pygmalion" may have inspired his wife to bequeath a fund to the Irish to teach them the niceties of speech and social intercourse. He made this suggestion to newsmen Wednesday when it was made known that Mrs. Shaiv hafl willed the bulk of her 5600,000 estate to become an educational fund for the people of her native land. ''Pygmalion" told of the transformation of an unlettered flower- girl into a society belle by an idealistic English professor who taught her cultured English. Shaw made it clear, however, that the money would not go to the Irish until he was dead. "Already a considerable number of people have written me from Ireland to get hold of the money," he said. "They are not going to get it. "What I have. I hold. Mr. Churchill's attitude is my attitude." This apparently was a reference to Winston Churchill's assertion that he did not become prime minister to preside over "the liquidation of the British empire." Mrs. Shaw's will specified that the fund was to be used for teaching- the Irish, amone other thinfcs, "self-control, elocution, deportment anrt.thc.arls of personal contact and social intercourse." "It is no good your asking me about Mrs. Shaw's attitude toward Ireland." Shaw said. "Don't ask me; ask her spirit. What she observed in Ireland I observe in England." When one reporter referred to "the ill-mannered Irish," Shaw snapped: "They are not the only ones. What about the English and the Welsh?" then he added: "At (lie time my wife made that will I was seriously considering doing the same thing for the English--and would now, only 1 haven't enough money left." Mrs. Shaw died last September IRISH STUNG BY arRs. SHAWS WILL New York, (/P)--The Irish were articulate Thursday, and the wil of Mrs. George Bernard Shaw \% t as responsible. Stung by the report that the will would set up a $400,000 fund to leach people of her native lane "self-control, elocution, deportment and the arts of personal contact and social intercourse," they made these comments: In Mew York-Charles F. Connolly, editor of live Irish .Echo: "It was the Irish themselves that taught the English manners and Christianity when the English were savages Why. when the Irish were civilizing the world, the English were barbarians. Sure, the English were so steeped in densencss they would kiss the clay on an Irish joot, and I've history to prove that." The Rev. Joseph J. Lynch, Fordham university seismologist: 'The Irish have always paid strict attention to the will of God, but they're not apt to pay much attention to the will of Mrs. George Bernard Shaw." John F. Fitzgerald. former mayor: "I'm sorry Mrs. Shaw wasn't successful in improving her husband's manners.' The Irish mayor of Omaha, Nebr., Dan Butler, remarked: "We think that Colin Kelly, and many more Irish heroes in this war have all the manners anyone could ask. Right now we need fighting manners, not drawing room antics. And may I inquire-just who is going Irish manners?" to teach the Will Start Boilers at Hemp Plant Eagle Grove -- The boilers at the hemp plant will be fired up for the first time Monday.
