MASON CITY NINE TAKES BYE, WILL START SATURDAY (Continued From Sports rage) Von Eps was cut down by Lane at second on Crabb's throw. With Campbell . on third, Cole- nran, on the mound for Rockwell, chopped a ball into the ground down the third base, line for a squeeze play that scored Campbell. Suter fired the ball over first bas£ to set Coleman on the bag, and Sawyer's ringing double completed the damage for 3 runs. Roeder fanned and was thrown out by Mott to end the inning. Hert contributed a nice infield play when he retrieved a wild toss from Crabb a half dozen feet off the first sack and made the putout on Coleman.

NEWMAN Manager Luther Norsemen to Meet Carleton Nine in Minnesota Battle DECORAH, April 25.--Victorious in their first throe games ol the year, the Luther Norsemen will journey to Northfield, Minn., to meet Carleton in their fourth game of the season on Thursday this week. The Norsemen have had little trouble in disposing of the University of Missouri and Upper Iowa nines in one and two games respectively and appear to have one of tteir most powerful teams in several years. Slugging the offerings of opposing hurlers freely, the Norse batsmen have collected a total of 39 hits, 14 of which have gone for extra bases, in the three tilts engaged in thus far. In the field'the team has looked equally imposing, particularly since the shifting of Art Grangaard, Minneapolis, Minn., yearling from the centerfield post to third base, a move which has given the Norse infield a polish that it has not equaled in several seasons. ONE CAR FOUND, ANOTHER STOLEN Northwood Car Recovered at Ventura Where One Is Reported Missing. Sheriff J. M. Robertson recovered a car owned by Conrad Olson, Northwood, and was on the trail of another reported stolen from Harry Thompson, Ventura, Wednesday. ' The Olson car was stolen at Northwood about 11 o'clock Tuesday night and was found Wednesday morning at Ventura, where it is believed the thieves abandoned the car for the Thompson car. The Ventura car bears the Iowa license number, 17-5304. The car is a 1931 Chevrolet sedan. CHICAGO CASH GRAIN.

Dillinger Chasers Without Any Right to Carry Firearms WASHINGTON, April 25. LB-The justice department's Dillinger chasers have no more legal right to carry firearms than ordinary citizens--but they do. Not only are they fully armed, but Attorney General Cummings seeks an increase in their forces, and the use of armored cars and a fleet of high powered squad cars. The perplexing legal twist whereby the agents are not authorized to bear arms, nor even to make arrests, has come to 1 the personal attention of the attorney general. , Asked at luncheon about this apparent flaw in the law, he asserted: "You may say that the department of justice would like to have this matter cleared up."

Market Notes By TICKER TATIii Business in the district appears to have been somewhat more active in March than in February, after allowance for purely seasonal factors. The volume of business in the district was also larger than the volume a year ago, but this comparison 13 of small significance since in March last year the events o£ the bank holiday period greatly hampered the transaction of many kinds of business, and aa a resul tthe total volume of Business in that month -was the smallest in any month during the depression years, after making seasonal corrections. The Index of bank debits, on a seasonally corrected basis, increased from 57 In February 1934, to 61 In March. The country check clearings index rose from 99 In February, to 101 in March. The seasonally corrected Index of miscellaneous freight car- loadings Increased from 67 in February, to 70 in March, but the index of less-than- carlot freight movement declined from 6- in February to 60 in March. RETAIL TRADE IS INCREASING Ketall trade reports for March Indicate that the rural areas continued to experience greater increases over last year than the larger cities. Eishty-two rural department stores and general stores reported sales 54 per cent larger in March than in the'same month last year, whereas 32 city department stores reported a 29 per cent Increase. Similarly, representative rural furniture stores reported sales 31 per cent larger In March than a yaer ago. \vhereas city furniture stores reported only a 3 per cent Increase. The greatest percentage increase over March last year amon? the individual lines of business In this district was in building contracts awarded, -which were more than six times as large In March this year as in March a year ago. However, upon analysis, it Appears that this enormous increase was due to the small volume of building contracts in the northwest last year. As a matter of fact. March building contracts in ]S3* were slightly smaller than contracts in Mardi 1952, and were less than half as large as March contracts in 1931 or 1930, BUILDING PERMITS HIGHER Other increases over the volume of business in March R year ago occurred in building permits, freight carloadings of coal, coke, forest products, miscellaneous and 1. c. 1. freight, country lumber sales, life insurance sales, securities sales, wholesale trade, and marketings of cattle and calves. Decreases from the volume in March last year occurred in freight carloadings of ore. grain marketings, flour shipments, linseed products shipments, butter production, and market receipts ol hogs and sheep. No comparative figures are available for Marcn last year in the case of bank debits and country check clearings. Bank debits and country cheek clearings In this district in the first half of April ·were larger than In the same period last year. The Increase In bank debits was 16 per cent, and in ·- - - - - - -· · 36 per cent. TOP AT $4.10, 15 CENT GAIN Market Strong on Run of 21,000 Head, Equal to Estimate.

STOCK MARKET . DOWN SLIGHTLY Price Fluctuations Mostly Narrow With Firmness in Few Specialties. NEW YORK, April 25 UFl--Stocks were slightly lower today, but fluctuations were generally narrow. A few specialties were firm. National Steel rose 2. Santa Fe cancelled a small decline. Moderate recessions were registered by American Tele- plione. U. S. Steel, Chrysler, Consolidated Gas and U. S. Smelting. Transfers approximated 900,000 shares. Stocks and staples apparently were selling "ex-inflation" again. With silver, enthusiasm wilting appreciably under the presidential frown, the bar metal was reduced 1% cents an ounce to 42,; cents, the lowest figure since last December. Silver futures dipped and rallied nervously. The utilities were not aided particularly by the report of North American for the 12 months ended March 31, which showed a rather substantial recession in earnings. First quarter gains, however, were registered by Standard Brands, Stewart Warner, Wrigley and others. 01T.

CHICAGO, April 25.-Wheat--Notwithstanding liquidation of wheat, which resulted in new low levels · fqr the week the market rallied in' the last half iour and quite sharply near the close. All :osses were recovered and prices at the close showed fractional improvement. The market during the morning -was under the influence ~l the weakness of corn, another break in silver and a sharp dip hi cotton, which jeemed to completely overshadow the numerous bullish reports received. Tbe later rally v.-as started by eastern bouses. No news for the sudden ratly but thought possible that the market liad reached an oversold position as a result of the recent bear- sh and that the decline had gone far enough for the present. Scattered showers were reported at a few points In Oklahoma md Texas and had some effect on the market at the time they appeared. Export demand was slow, Coarse Grains--Corn and oats were weak early, the former liquidation of May and a weak cash market. Later, both' rallied, the close showing' very little net change. It is estimated that around 65.000,000 cash corn has been pledged as collateral in Illinois which is over 50 per cent of the total supply on farms as shown by the government April 1 fipures. More, or less unsettlement is likely until May liquidation .Is out of the way but we feel tiiese unfavorable reports will-have their effects ultimately. 3.30 7-» 237 4.00 38 3i 226 4.10 27 $3 224 4.0.T S7 203 4.00 CATXLE.

UP)--American league attendance records so far this season are far ahead of those at the same period a j-ear ago, William Harridge, league president, said here today.
