Miss Leona Mary Nichols, IS, daughter- of Mrs. Delia Nichols at ,18 Hescook place," a yarn Inspector in the Bearer mill unstained Iniur- i«i which may prove fatal, late yesterday afternoon in an accident that ii «ald to be without precedent In Massachusetts' Mill history.

Her right hand was resting between the heavy yarn cables when she is believed to have stepped on the starting pedal. The yarn caught her hand drawing her in between the threads and the beam. Her body was wound once and a h»l£ around the beam barrel and she sustained a fracture of the skull, fractures of both thighs and a crush- Ing Injury to her ehest. She was removed to the North Adams hospital where site was reported today to be in fair condition, conscious and suffering much pain. Miss Nichols had been employed In the Beaver mill for about three years and was considered an experienced employe. Inspector Thomas F. Egan of the Bureau of Labor and Industries Investigated the accident this morn- Ing and In commenting on it said, that so far as he could learn, it was the first accident of the kind that had ever occurred. The machine Is extremely simple he said, so simple In fact that It is dlffteult, he said, to see how such a serious accident could occur. Simple safeguards supposed amply to protect operators had been devised but through this accident the machine now becomes a hasard and the bureau experts will at once set about devising some means of safeguarding it.

A sprinkling of short selling also had ts effect on the price movement when the rate for call money was ·alsed from its renewal quotation of 1% to 4% in the early afternoon, allowing the calling of about $20,00,000 in loans. This seHing was coincident with vigorous buying of selected stocks on he circulation of reports of excellent arnings, stock dividends and larger ash distributions to shareholders. Taking the Increased car loadings as a*n indication that general business s holding tip well, pools were agitin active-ami group buying was a factor ii elevating various shares to new altitudes for the year. Special buy- ag was evident in most of the important groups. Including railroad equipments, tobacco, farm implements and foods. United States Steel, after selling as low as 168, rallied to 169% fol- owing the publication of the unfilled onnage figures, showing a loss of 17,000 tons, somewhat greater than lad been expected in some quarters. }ther pivotal shares, however, were on the downward trend at 1 o'clock, a good many issues relinquishing earlier advances. Heaviness cropped out particularly in some of the oils, motors and western railroads, especially Union Pacific and Chicago Northwestern. New York, May 10--(A.P.)--Selling orders were more numerous at the opening of the stock market today, especially among high priced industrials, Dupont, Baldwin, Mack Truck and American Smelting losing around a point each. Sharp fractional losses were sustained by U. S. Rubber and Phillips Petroleum. Eastman Kodak, however, touched a new high figure at 148 3-4 and International Silver gained nearly 'three points. Rumors of competitive buying of Hudson and Manhattan by big railroad systems Influenced a speculative demand which mounted to 65 7-8 a new peak. Other railroads- that got into new high ground during the forenoon Included Reading at 117%, Wheeling and Lake Erie pfd at 95 and 'Union Pacific pW., at 83%. Some profit-taking sales were again evident In certain of the motors including Mack Truck and General Motors. Pood shares continued to forge upward, Loose Wiles Biscuit rising over six points to 192, a new record figure. Bidding up of selected industrials, notably General Motors and International Harvester and the stability of railroads In consequence of the surprising Increase In freight loadings despite the Mississippi flood and the coal strike, caused a halt In the early selling campaign. TJ. s. Steel, however, was offered freely for a while on predictions that the unfilled tonnage statement to be Issued at noon would show a considerable contraction. Profit-taking salei also were extensive for a time in National Biscuit, Postum Company and Hudson Motors, which were foremost in yesterday's pronounced rise In the industrial group. Squeezing of slhort interests and expectations of recap- italization were responsible for some of the most conspicuous advances, Including National Tea which jumped six points.

Iowa Institutions W · Win Milt'Contest Des Moines, I«r, May lb)--(A.P.) --Iowa and Michigan have staged a 12 month contest in milk production and Iowa has won. The charitable and penal Institutions of the two commonwealths were pitted against each other during 1926 In a friendly competition arranged by the boards of control and the Hawkeys state came In ahead by showing a milk production of 10,161 pounds per cow on state farms, 'against a production of 10, 081 for every bossy In the pastures of Wolverine Institutions. What pure-bred herds and scientific care can do in milk production is shown by comparison of Institutional figures with those for milk cows on farms In general. The average milk production for Iowa cows outside Institutions In 1928 was but 4051 pounds, not half that o institutional herds; while the per cow production in Michigan was 3,918 pounds. Iowa's best showing was at the Clarinda state hospital where each milk cbw averaged 13,626 pounds Leader in Michigan was the Tra verse City state hospital herd with an average of 12,939 pounds. Th Hawkeye victory is credited to A McColl, member of the hoard o control, who has directed the instl tutlonal farms and has made them show a profit In every year since thi war. Iowa already claims the hlgbes state institutional production in the country of corn, pork, butter an egg*. Alaskan Deer Brought Nearer U. S.
