Rldei Car Bumper Perky, a brown speckled bantam rooster must have had a thrilling ride one recent night, when he rode the front bumper of his master's automobile across town. The ride was enjoyed evidently because the rooster tried to make the same trip the next night but was found before the car started from the garage. The rooster belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Docrr, 3524 Gill- liam. The only one from the brood raised, the bahty refuses to have nny dealings with the other chicken* and keeps to himself, even to roosting In the garage. The bumper ride was made when Mr. Doerr drove to Alton Brick Co., yards for the midnight shift and was found after the car was parked. Perky was placed In a box for the ride home.

' golf again. Vet he has. He went 18 tense holes In 73 strokes yesterday to open the 24th renewal of the richest totirnament in the winter swing. He trailed 15 other golfers, but It made no difference to the spectators. They were on his side. He was nervous, but they were on edge too. Maybe more so. When he got into a dispute about photographers snapping his picture as-he shot, Hogan was calm. But the gallery' booed, and shouted, "Throw them out," and "Take their cameras away." Ed Furgol of Royal Oak, Mich., who has suffered from a withered left arm since childhood, turned in n 68 for the day's low. Normally such a performance would have had the crowd muttering to Itself. Just before dusk, Ellsworth Vines and Jerry Barber, both of Pasadena, «ame In with 69i. At the eighteenth green, the crowd, what there was of it, applauded politely. Most of the record gallery of 9000 was off down Riviera's 7020-yard course, right behind Hogan. He was tired at the finish, but ho proved he could go 18 holes of tournament play. Many felt, however, that despite his gallant trV, he wouldn't be up there at the end, that he doesn't have the stamina yet for 72 holes of tournament golf." Hogan has been called "The Iceman" because of his coolness under fire. But not only he photographers bothered him yesterday. So did a low-flylnjj airplane, a spectator's sudden cry In the silence before a drive, the hammer- Ing on a building far distant. That wasn't the Hogan of old, Even so, he was terrific for nine holes. He finished at 34, one under par. Then his touch on the greens wont a bit. sour. He went three over on the par-36. back nine. Five players solved fast, trlcjky greens for par 71s In temperatures ranging from 36 at the start to 72 In mid-afternoon. They were the veterans Sam Snead, White Sulphur Springs, W.

NEW YORK, Jan. f, i* - Demand for selected stocks expanded rapidly after a steady start In the market today. Prices for favored Issues moved up fraction* to around a point. Heavy trading accompanied the rise. Activity extended to some of the market's usual leaders, but price action in that group was extreme* ly limited. Volume for the two-hour session approached 1,000,000 shares. Six months ago this would have been regarded as good business for a full five-hour day. Low-priced stocks attracted the bulk of demand, which has been the case In a number of recent markets. Some of yesterday's popular Issues — among them aircraft and radio-television stocks—again drew a Irage following. For the first hour or so prices moved narrowly. Trading had showed to a routine rate after a fast opening. Higher prices were paid for Admiral Corp., Philco, Radio Corp., Curtis • Wright, ' General Motors, Chrysler and Goodyear. Missouri Pacific obligations again dominated trading in the bond market, although some of yesterday's sharp gains were shaded slightly at times.
