Doyle Miller officiating Burial Valhalla Memorial Park In state at the chapel after 7 pm Tuesday By MARY HAZELWOOD Telegraph Staff Writer JERSEYVILLE — An estimated $750 in narcotics was among loot at two separate drug store burglaries, one in Greenfield and one In Brighton, over the weekend. Most of the loot was taken at the Smith Drug Store in Greenfield where the safe was peeled. Sunday afternoon burglars at Hall's Drug Store in Brighton were apparently frightened away before completing the job. The Greenfield burglary occurred between 1 8 p.m. Saturday and 7:30 a.m. Sunday, the Greene County Sheriff's Department said. Nile Smith, owner of the drug store, estimated that $500 in drugs were taken as well as $900 in cash and an estimated $2,000 in merchandise. The owner of the Brighton Drug Store, Jack Hall estimated that about $250 in drugs were missing and about $500 in merchandise. The burglars were unsuccessful in their attempt to open the safe at Hall's, police said, and theorized that they were frightened away by activity in the vicinity of the store. Hall said that although the amphetamine and barbiturate cabinets had appeared to have been disturbed in the 5:30 p.m. Sunday burglary, he had' been unable as yet to determine just how many of these were missing. Entry at Greenfield was made by climbing across the roof of an adjoining buidling and going in through a second story window. Greene County Sheriff Frank Langley said the safe peeling job looked professional and that apparently the burglars were in the Greenfield drug store for some time. At Brighton, Hall discovered the burglary when he went to his store about 8 p.m.—investigation by polite put the time of the incident at about 5:30 p.m. Burglars pried open the rear door. , The safe at the Brighton store had been moved out from the wall but the burglars apparently were interrupted before tfyey were able to gel it open, police said. The estimated 2,000 in m e r c h a,n d i s e taken at Greenfield includes watches, watch bands, cigarette lighters and a typewriter. At Brighton besides the narcotics, the loot included radios and a TV set. The Greenfield burglary was discovered at 7:30 a.m. Sunday when an employe opened the store for business. Hill just happened to stop by at his place of business Sunday evening to pick up some soda to take to his home, he said. Eggs & poultry at St. Louis ST.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stock market prices wended their way downward Monday in moderate trading as the pall of profit taking continued to hang over Wall Street. At noon the Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks slipped 4.59 points to 832.42. Advances led declines on the New York Stock Exchange by a narrow margin. But on the 20 most-active list declines held a substantial 18- to-1 lead over advances with 1 stock remaining unchanged. Analysts said the news conferences scheduled by the White House and the Treasury Department for Monday afternoon could offer favorable developments. Observers are speculating the briefings will announce faster business equipment depreciation guidelines, they said. Such liberalization of the equipment depreciation rules could spur capital spending and stimulate the economy by providing about a $2-billion tax break for U.S. businesses. Among the negative factors at work in the market, other brokers noted, are the continued inflationary gains and rising unemployment, which are confusing hopes for the expected economic recovery in 1971. They also said mounting tensions in the Middle East are adding to investor uncertainty. At noon the Associated Press 60-sock average dipped 0.8 to 292.4, with industrials off 1.8, rails off 0.6, and utilities up 0.2. The Associated Press bond averages were unchanged. Chemicals, steels and rubber issues were mixed. Mail order retail, aircrafts, and utilities were up. All other stock categories were off. on bridge By OSWALD & JAMES JACOBY NORTH It 73 + A1042 EAST VJS'6 VA73 • K82 4AQJ1064 4QJ985 *63 SOUTH (D) 4AQJ73 VK104Z .495 *K7 Both vulnerable West Horth Eufc Soofli • '--I* Pass 34 Pass 44.

At their lowest points, soybeans futures declined 1J/4 cents and corn and wheat around 1 cent. There appeared to be no outside influences at work on prices after the opening. Early strength in the major pits ' appeared to be a carryover from last Friday's session. Near the close then, strong buying activity in the soybean complex sent beans up 4^ cents a bushel. Wheat and corn advanced more than 2 cents. Soy oil and meal prices were strong on the opening, again on a reported firm to strong cash level, and this brought some buying activity into beans. After this early interest in the three commodities had been s a t i s i f e d some speculative liquidation touched off a small wave of selling. Prices weakened progressively thereafter. Prices weakened in the corn and wheat pits after selling hit ' the complex. Within minutes after the opening, corn and wheat had fallen nearly 1 cent. Oats prices showed little movement in very dull trade. Iced broilers also showed little movement in very light dealings. Livestock prices at East St. Louis NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

Jim: "Some gadgets used in expert bidding are so complicated that even the experts become confused by them. Others are even simpler than the methods .the average players use." Oswald: "Of the latter, point count is the most conspicuous example. I used it from 1932 on. By 1940 it hd achieved popularity among most experts. Yet it was 10 years later before the public adopted it." Jim: "Limit raises are a current case in point. It is much simpler to use all jump raises as limit bids than to use some as invitations and others as absolute forces. All experts don't use limit-jump raises today, but the majority do." Oswald: "This includes the Jacobys who switched to limit raises almost 20 years ago and we use it in 'Jacoby Modern." Jim: "Today's hand shows one of the great advantages of the limit-jump raise. North responds three spades to his partner's opening spade bid. East can't afford to try a four-diamond bid. South goes on to game. Our jump raises aren't forces, but they are strong invitations. West makes his normal lead of the club queen. South takes his king, draws trumps, finesses against West's jack of clubs, discards one losing diamond and winds up making four or five depending on how he plays the hearts." Oswald: "Playing standard American, North must respond two clubs. East gets a two-diamond bid in. South still gets to the spade game, but the defense starts by taking two diamond tricks and shifting to a trump. South will still make his contract if he locates the jack of hearts. Otherwise he will be one down. All because North could not jump right to three spades."
