While closing prices were above the lows in many cases, real come'. back stamina was lacking. A moderately active first hour- turned into a sluggish performance and transfers approximated 700 000 shares. Early selling followed weakness of stocks in London which -was attributed mainly to renewed fears the latest German-Polish tension might touch off a fresh war crisis Business news, while not too bad, seemed to furnish scant stimulation for Wall street and inspiration, marketwise, was lacking in most Washington happenings Brokers reported considerable I short selling in the morning.

CONVICT'S DAUGHTER Continaed From Comic Page "Oh, thank you, thank you!" she replied, allowing the tears she had kept back to spring to her eyes. "It's such a relief--you don't know how terrible it's been, knowing about--all this, and trying to keep it quiet I've been so afraid, and I dared not tell anyone, not even the doctor." j He nodded sympathetically. "It's tough," he agreed. "And if there's anything a friend can do, I'm here." - "Oh, thank you again," Lona told him, wanting nothing so much as to get off by herself where she could stop thinking and just rest. "I'm sure Jim will thank you, too, , able to -- know about when he's things." He let her go, then, without another word, sensing her tiredness. Mrs. Morriss had gone to the library for her day's work, and there was only Dinah, wide-eyed and curious, to greet her in the silent old house. She managed to satisfy the girl's barrage of questions as to Jim's condition and, declining even the steaming cup of tea Mrs. Morriss had ordered prepared for her, she crept upstairs to bed. It was to be the best sleep she had had since Jim's accident. Down .n the bottom of .her mind she realized, as she drifted off, her worst fear had been of Clark Martin. To. be assured by him, to know there was nothing to conceal from m'm any longer, was a load lifted, from her shoulders. With Jim definitely on the way to getting well, she no .onger felt so alone, so weighted down with responsibility. It would be easier now. She slept on, until late after- loon. The sun was already peer- 'ng obliquely through the scrolled ace of the curtains on the west window when she started up, a aguely guilty feeling warning her of something she should be doing. Tor a moment the strangeness of Wrs. Morriss' gracious bedroom bewildered her. Then she came to 'ull consciousness and sprang out VIRGHOW HEADS UNION GROUP Officers of Farm Equipment Workers' Union Are Elected CHARLES CITY--Permanen officers of local union 115, Unite Farm Equipment Workers o America, were elected Saturda night at a meeting held in thei hall !n the Schlick building.

She remern- )ered her appeal to Clark Martin, and his reassuring reply. He was a riend, he had said. She had be- ieved him, then, the stupor of her iredness dulling her brain. But now . . . somehow, it didn't ring rue! Could she trust him? Had he trusted him too far already? She was half afraid to answer vhen Dinah's inquiring tap came at the door just as she had fin- shed dressing. She stood still in he middle of the room, her eyes earching the girl's face as Dinah vheeled through the door. But it ras a smiling face, faintly amused it the lateness of the hour, a little hiding. "Nobody called, then?" Lona sked, her relief finding voice. There's been no word from the .ospital?" "Everything is fine. I called in ust an hour ago. Jim was just vaking up. He's better. There's 10thing to worry about." Dinah's ·oice was soothing, and she relaxed. "You're s u r e nobody else called?" she insisted, half afraid to feel safe. Would the police call here, she was wondering. Or would they just put a guard at the hospital? Maybe they'd even break in on Jim. Put him under arrest there in bed, while he lay helpless, with nobody to protect him. She gulped down Dinah's tasty supper hastily, afraid the girl was being hurt by her impatience, but unable to conceal it "I promised him I'd be there when he woke up," she told Dinah, apologetically. "I didn't intend to sleep so long. He may be wanting me." She was glad when she was'out of the house and could hurry as much as she pleased. She felt driven, s o m e h o w . Why, she couldn't explain. Her fears crystallized as she came up to the hospital and saw, parked complacently, one of the green cars bearing the gold-lettered B. P.
