Chicago Police Find Man Shot to Death and Wounded Woman CHICAGO, (iP)-- Englewood police round a man shot to death and a woman wounded four times lying in an automobile at Sixty- fourth street and Harvard avenue on the south side Saturday. Capt. Walter Healy identified the man as Joe Carvel, about 35, described as a whom he had minor hoodlum arrested several times in connection with to -thefts and narcotics peddling. The woman, who became hysterical and sobbed "I'm afraid. I'm afraid," had been shot in the head and neck. She is about 25. Lomson Brothers Market Letter CHICAGO-- SVhul--There was continued uncertainty over the political situation in Europe but as security prices rebounded from Friday's lows, a little more feeling of optimism came into the picture ar.d the various innucnccs caused moderately lower wheat prices. As to the speech which was broadcast by Hitler, radio headquarters at Berlin said the interruption was caused in the V. S. Other sources susgcsl the foroadcr.n was shut off fearinK it v.-ould be broadcast back to Germany where the people were unaware that Hitler was to speak. After an opening, speculative selling of long wheat made its appearance. The selling together with that of traders carried prices about '\ cent I bushel under early high value?. Wheat, however, was taken on restinc orders by brokers and it was thouzht that some of this buying related to taking off of hedges on government sold wheat. The wheat market naturally continues under the influence of the deep seated political \mresl ill Europe btit the outside buying which would ordinarily mate- rialise tinder such conditions is lacking. Corn--Commission houses sold corn moderately Saturday -while cash brokers were on the buying side. There was no export bu?;ress reported. The A r g e n t i n e official v crop report said that general railis durins March had been beneficial. K A N S A S CITV GRAIN* ( S a l n r d a ?

Fast Saturday Session NEW YORK, JP)--In one of the fastest Saturday sessions in more than a year, the stock market Saturday rallied and relapsed at frequent intervals but managed to end on a rising note. The European scene held Wall Street's attention to the virtual exclusion of domestic business and political happenings. Many trad- j ers were said to have stepped in i on the buying side at the opening on the theory the sharp declines o£ the past two days called for a "correction" no matter what transpires overseas. Transfers for the two hours approximated 1,500,000 shares. Final gains ran to 2 or more points for favorites, but there were a number of losers of as much. The financial district seemed to derive some courage from the belief that the stronger stand of the Anglo-French entente might avert war. Prominent stocks on Hie recovery shift included U. S. Steel, Bethlehem. General Motors, Chrysler. U. S. Rubber. Goodyear, Montgomery Ward, Douglas Aircraft, Sperry, American Tele. phone, Anaconda, du Pont and ij.-i j Philip Morris.

April Fool Spirit Found in Statehouse Motion to Abolish Legislature Lauded by Secretary Miller DES MOINES, (/Pi--The April Fool spirit invaded the Iowa statehouse Saturday. Alter nearly two hours of serious labor, during which the house concurred in senate amendments to the tax commission bills, the representatives indulged in some levity before adjourning until Monday. Deputies from the offices of executive council members mimicked their bosses in a "mock" council meeting. Hoegh Offers Motion The house of representatives had passed several legalizing acts when Representative Leo Hoegh (R), Chariton, rose and asked for unanimous consent to take up house file 637, which lie described as "just a little legalizing act, of I a non-controversial nature." I House file 637 is a liquor-by- I the-drink bill. "It really is a 'legalizing act,' '· Hoegh grinned when the members caught the joke. Some one asked for consent to take up house file 1 (the local option bill), but the request was ruled out of order because there was a motion to adjourn before the house. Earl Miller Agrees As the session broke up, many representatives went downstairs to congratulate Gov. George A. Wilson on his fifty-fifth birthday. Proposals coming before the "mock" executive council included a resolution purportedly sponsored by the secretary of state's office and calling lor abolition of the legislature. "That's a good bill," Earl G. Miller, the real secretary of state,. called out from the "gallery." Millers department would lose heavily under governmental reorganization measures pending in the legislature. Grandson of F. R.
