Only 200 c»t*Je came into the yards, compared with Friday last week medium weight and weighty steers averaged unevenly 25 cents to 75 cents higher with the top 90 cents above that a week ago. Good to choice yearlings and light steers also ruled higher as did light heifers and vealers.

THILGESWAirS FOR ATTORNEY Other 2 Confessed Torture Bandits Ready to Plead at Emmetsburg. EMMETSBURG, May 5.---Joe Thilges, 47. Whittemore, one of three held here for torture robberies in North Iowa totaling $18,000, today · awaited word from his attorney, John Sloan, Des Moines, before he would enter a plea. Thilges declared I he had participated" in only two robberies and that he was forced by a stranger to participate "in the robbery of Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Eisen- man of Woden. "Bad company got me here,' Thilges asserted. "I never harmed anyone." The other two robbers Estel Anders, 45, Decatur, 111., and Rutland, and Ole Thorsland, 37, Bode, are ready to plead guilty they said. Thilges told reporters that he didn't care to enter a not guilty plea and be forced to wait in jail until fall for trial. "They'd give me the same rap, then," he said, "and I'd rather start serving a sentence now." A robbery with aggravation charge carries with it a 25 year mandatory sentence. It was stated. Inquiries from all parts of Iowa have been received here by Sheriff Bert Montgomery, as authorities from various cities are endeavor-in] to connect the prisoners · with unsolved crimes. Mason City officers stated that Thorsland and Anders strongly resembled two bandits who held up and robbed the Standard Oil station there of $700 several months ago.

IS")--- Stocks led by the alcohols and some of the farm group, suffered relatively se- AnaMn da vere declines today. Losses of 1 to Atchison around 4 points were recorded in a selling rush that put the ticker tape several minutes in arrears during the second hour. Their were some mild recoveries just before the finish, but the close was heavy. Transfers approximated 875,000 shares Commission houses generally could assign no specific reason for .the break. While Wall street was still somewhat gloomy over the prospects of government regulation of speculation, there was nothing especially new in this situation. Commodities were a little mixed Most of the grains were lower at mid day as rains were reported in various growing districts. Cotton dippsd and rallied nervously. Bonds were steady. Dollar rates were nar- now. Shares of U. S. Industrial and American Commercial Alcohols were off around 4 points each and J. E. Case dropped 3. New York Central and Santa Fe were down 1 and 2 points respectively. Others, off 1 to around 2. included U. S. Steel, American Telephone, Western Union. United Aircraft, American Sugar Refining, Du Pont, Spiegel-May- Stern, Johns-Manville, American Can and Deere. Chrysler and General Motors yielded major fractions. Consolidated Gas and Public Service of New Jersey were on slightly lower. U. S. Smelting came back 2 points, hut American Smelting was not enthusiastic. American Commercial Alcohol was heavy from the start, losing 5 points at one time. Heaviness of the liquors Issues was attributed partly to reports that additional price cuts would soon be in order.

I ur- ther rams were reported in parts of the southwest. The forecast held out little hope of any material moisture In any section of the belt over the week-end, I^ate advices told of -dustslorms at severa. points In Saskatchewan. The opinion was expressed b local experts today that there has thus far been no breakln e of the drought in the American northwest by the rainfall of the past two or three days, although the moisture probably furnlished sufficient moisture over a considerable area. Corn--Com followed wheat for its main trend and closed higher. Planting is reported as progressinc in localities where moisture Is sufficient, but is slow In the dry sections. Cash sales were only 23,000 bushels and bookings 30.000. Oats--Dry weather reports had further effect on oats and this market recorded a good advance. May moved above 32c. Lack of deliveries on May contracts and the small stocks of contract oats in store here were factors in causing some congest.on in the nearby deliveries. The market Monday will likely remain under the influence of weather developments. although action of stocks may be a factor. Building FiUing Station.
