That's why second quarter price lists are to hold. Political circles Say that Big Steel fears President ttdbsevftlt arid that's why second quarter lists afe being maintained. Intents close to the management takfe another view. They say that while the cbhipany expects to maintain current schedules it doesn't necessarily mean that the offer is fffm. Should scrap iron or other costs Increase, so will third quarter finished steel prices. It was pointed out that the announcement was only teiripbrary and that a detailed one Wbuld follow. HUPP. Automobile trade circles agree that tife Hupp situation has turned for the better. Stockholders finally got together and approved the directors' plans to provide new working capital. That's the way Stuclebaker and \villys-Overland came back into the picture. At one time the Hupp picture looked hopeless. But with management difficulties settled and new Working capital provided the coin-- pa'ny should do w.ell in the competitive field Hupp's body-styling and engine always ranked with the best In the business. ARMOUR. Speculative interests continue to favor Armour of all in the packing industry. This because of the expansion in earnings during the current fiscal year. The enthusiasm was aided by President Cabell's statement that second half fiscal year earnings would better those of the first half because that is the best part of the year. Based on this prospect the Armour directors voted a 20 cent payment against the previous disbursement of fifteen cents a share. dividend Increase likely late this ear ...

According to Charles Donnelly, president of Northern Pacific, March gross revenues ran six times greater than the $500,C30 reported for the like month last year. First quarter operations were the best in years. All this was attributed to the better crop and business conditions in the territory served. As for Northern Pacific's outlook for the balance of the year, three reasons were given why earnings should be up: (1) a large crop is anticipated throughout the northwest; (2) the railroad is the only carrier with access to the Grand Coulee Dam developments; and, (3) revival of the lumber industry means increased shipments. MOVIES. Secondary "movie" shares are again in speculative favor. Some are currently priced at their old peaks. Dopesters say that the buying is of the best kind. The optimism is based on the excellent earnings reported for toe first three months of this year. But the more conservative element isn't following the enthusiasm. The excellent earning showings aren't disputed. What is preventing buying on the part of these people is that the amusement industry is about to enter its dull season. Furthermore, long-pull buyers never follow speculative activity. FINANCING. Informed reports are that Oliver Farm Equipment is to do new financing. The amount involved will run at about $7,500,000. Funds obtained will be used to purchase the Chicago Mill & Lumber Company, reduce current bank loans which amount to about $250,000 and to increase working capital. Should the investment market stabilize itself the offering will be in the form of convertible bonds. Otherwise it will be an offering of common shares. The financing is contemplated for early July when a first six months' earnings estimate will be available. COPPERS. Despite the fact that red metal prices cracked during the past few weeks statistical circles report underlying sentiment as bullish. It is pointed out that based on last year's output 1937 income should make favorable reading. It was estimated that if copper held through the year at an average of 15 cents per pounc Magma will show $6.50 a share, Anaconda about $5, Kennecott about $5 and Phelps Dodge around $5.50 a share.

(Copyright, McClure Newspaper Syndicate.) CAPITOL JIGSAW By HOWARD C. MARSHALL AUSTIN, April 28 (/P)—If any one links the legislature cannot work apldly he should see it handle the nileage and per diem appropriation ills. Those measures make available he money to pay the members sal- ries and defray the cost of trans- ortation between their homes and ic capital.

Senator Frank lawlings of Port Worth had the ;oor when Senator Gordon Burns f Huntsville interrupted. "Isn't it true," queried Burns, that you can prove anything by he Bible?" "Maybe you could," snapped Raw- ings; "I couldn't, nough about it." I don't know It may be that the Senate will ttencl the Pan American exposi- ion at Dallas in a body next fall. iieut.-Gov. Walter Woodul faceti- usly made the observation recently. A publicity representative of the xposition, addressing the Senate, xpressed hope the legislature would ie adjourned by June 12, opening Jate of the show, and could attend. Woodul said it looked as if the egislature might be in session un- 11 fall and if it was they would onsider going up en masse. Senator Clint C. Small of Ama- illo came over to the press table ne morning, smiled urbanely and valked off with a chair, remarking wanted to borrow it from "the Fourth Estate." This gave rise to comment on the LET'S KNOW TIXAS AND TMANS BY WILL H. MATES. In this column snsWert ^Iffl U tfltth tb matter* pertaining to th* ««» «n4 «* people.

Edmund Burke is said to have first referred to them as the "Fouth Estate." The other estates in England were the lords, the commons and the clergy. In Texas, however, the "fourth house" has another meaning. The Representatives and the Senate are two, of course; and the lobblists often are called the third. Therefore, it was suggested, the lobbyists, in a sense, have displaced the clergy, insofar as the nomenclature might be applied to Texas. Contributions to the New London memorial fund continue to be made. One of the more recent was from Lime, Oregon. Twenty-four pupils in the district school there sent in 24 cents and in a joint communication also extended sympathy to the families who lost children.
