Hit Best Levels , Since Oct. 6, 1941 NEW YORK, (ff)-- Stocks con- . , . anc volume attaining the largest tota for the current year. Part of the advance, brokers suggested, was inspired bv investors with sizable idle funs who bought actual and potential dividend payers as a means of alleviating the greatest Income tax demands in history. The war news was still an argument for broadening portfolios and business prospects drew bids for individual favorites. Thursday's late rally was extended at the start in active dealings. Gains at the best ranged from fractions to 3 points. A few wider moves were in evidence There were intermittent letdowns on profit-realizing -but prices generally were around their tops in the final hour.

It couldn't be called a "run" or a ' rush" perhaps, but it is evident hat consumers are buying up anned goods in amounts substantially larger than for the past few veeks. That they do not buy more s apparently due to limits im- osed by the retailers themselves. * * * Mrs. Rose Marie Kiefer, secre- ary of the National Association of letail Grocers, is satisfied that loarders are at work, insofar as hey are allowed. She insists, with good many others who are not necessarily classed as opponents of ew deal measures, that the pre- iminary announcement of the orrung of compulsory rationing vas a mistake. Reports coming in to the asso-. lation office here from through- ut the country indicate that the Uualion elsewhere is much the ame as in Chicago, with Wash- ngton, D. C,, at the top of the list n respect to the intensity of buy- ng. Some local reports to the effect hat "housewives stormed grocery tores," are held by close and dis- nterested observers to be without oundation. But it is admitted that luyjng is generally much more insk than before news of the impending ration plan came out. * * * In some instances retailers have nticipatcd such a move and have Jeen going on their own rationing ystems for some weeks. It is noted that the situation ·anes with the size and type of tore. In the small neighborhood tores there is less inclination to verbuy. This is explained by the fact that the store managers and clerks know most of their customers personally, and the customers in turn know the store people, and each other. They have confidence in tha store and in their neighbors and aren't led to buy out of lC3r, Where heavy buying sprees have been reported the retailers in practically every case j, ave app ij e( j some kind of restriction after it has become apparent that their stocks would not hold out under such increased demand. Buying from wholesalers so far apparent]? is about normaJ. * * * Rationing authorities are re-emphasizing the fact that every one must declare his present stocks when applying for the new ration cards, and that therefore in the end no one will have, by hoarding any more for he can't buy more until the hoarded stock is used up This, of course, presupposes a universally honest -response to the questioning as to present stocks. Just how far individual retail rationing systems will hold back the buying inclination no one can say, but it is pointed out that even with a limit of one or two cans per day to a customer, a family in the region of several stores can over a period of several weeks build up a substantial pile of goods The full effectiveness of these local rationing plans will depend not only on the honesty of buyers, but on the alertness of the retailers, and Aeir willingness to refuse continued day-after-day sales to one family.

BOSTON, (U.PJ-A former Wall street broker's clerk who joined the merchant marine two years ago and allegedly attempted to smuggle letters into the United States was jailed Thursday pend- '"8 fe d«al grand jury action while FBI agents and the army and navy intelligence departments investigated for possible espionage. The defendant was David J. Jacobs, 39 year old Syrian who jmve his address as New York City. He pleaded innocent to a charge of violating the trading with the enemy act by brinirtne into the United States other than the regular mails. U. S. Commissioner MnrUn T. Ball ordered nun jailed in lieu of $2,500 bail, Immigration Inspector Ralph L. Connolly testified that Jacobs was arrested last Thursday when his ship docked in Boston. Concealed in the lining ol Jacobs' coat, he said were a $100 bill and four letters not passed by censors. -- -~..«.., were addressed to F T E £ff?.f d Gaye of st - Albans, L.. i.; Eddie, Long Island City, "- x.; Miss Lorraine Devereaux, Brooklyn, and Mrs. Freida Cun- , .. Jacobs told the arresting officers pat the letters were given to him by American soldiers abroad to l! dtwhen he rea ched the States. .He said the §100 bill was from Pvt. Charles Shields for delivery to the soldier's mother. * * * However, intelligence officers became suspicions when Jacobs said he did not know the woman's address and that he "didn't know the soldier very well." * * * The letters, it was said, had been confiscated and were being examined. Assistant U. S. Atty. Edward u. Hassan said that the investiga- tion had disclosed that Jacobs had »! been bringing letters into the · country for some time.
