THURSDAY, JANUARY 12, 1950 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH FAOt Wave of Selling Delays Stocks Jan. 12, UPt— A sudden wave of selling flattened stock prices late today. < Losses of fractions to a point or so were quickly chalked up «as the market staggered under a load of offerings. Selling pressure was so Intense that the high-speed ticker tape lagged as much as six minutes In reports of transactions on the floor of the exchange. The tape also ran behind at the opening of the market but price action then was Inconclusive. Blocks of stock running to more than 5000 shares each were transferred at rapidly declining prices. Among the losers were U. S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel, General Motors, Chrysler, U. S. Rubber, Montgomery Ward, Boeing, Schcn- ley, American Smelting, 1>u Pont, Eastman Kodak, General Electric, Philip Morris, N. Y. Central, Southern Pacific, Nickel Plate, Standard Oil (NJ), Gulf Oil, and United Air Lines. Bonds weakened with stocks.

The death early Wednesday morn ing of his faithful "seeing-eye 1 dog, "Phil," was a crushing blow to John Merkel, blind operator of the soft drink stand here in the court house lobby. In fair weather and Jtoul, Phi had guided his master daily be tween home and the courthouse concession stand the past seven years, and his death seemed an Ir reparable loss. Mindful of the expense and re< tap* involved in securing a re placement for his 9-year-old guide dog, Merkel faced the prospect o making his daily trip to and from the courthouse for many months to come without, the companionship and watchful guidance of a see ing-eye dog. But today (here was a silver lining in Merkel's world of darkness Learning of Phil's death and the distress it brought his master Mayor William C. Straube and local civic and patriotic organizations have launched a fund-raisinj campaign to provide Merkel wltJ a new seeing-eye dog as soon as possible. The drive is meeting with a generous response from Merkel's many friends and courthouse em- ployes and officials who had be* come attached to Phil during his seven years of service to the concession stand operator. • One of the first seeing-eye dogs brought Into the county, Phil was acquired by Merkel seven years ago last November at the Seeing- Eye Kennels at Morristown, N. J An intelligent German shepard Phil was 21 months old at the time and Merkel had to spend a month at the kennels, going through the required dog-master training thai makes the canines invaluable to the blind. Recently Phil became afflicted with an intestinal disorder and an operation performed by a local veterinarian New Year's day failed to relieve the condition. Yesterday morning, when Merkel went into the basement to feed his faithful companion, he found Phil dead on the floor. "Phil cost me $203," Merkel recalled today, the figure representing the $150 purchase price from the Seeing-Eye kennels and expense involved in making the trip to New Jersey and the four-week stay there for training. A hunting accident July 19, 1931, cost Merkel his eyesight. He has operated the courthouse concession stand the past 10 years. The father of six grown children two daughters and four song, he lives with his wife at 914 Grand. Three of his sons saw combat duty in World War II and the fourth enlisted in the navy upon graduation from nigh school at the close of the war Attorneys Continued From Page 1.

After describing Taft as a person who can "jump from doubt to no doubt," Acheson said he was reminded of a one-time Supreme Court justice who said "this court is often in error, but never in doubt." Acheson's appearance in a public forum follows two lengthy closed door sessions with Senate and House committees on foreign affairs. Tuesday he spent more than four hours with the Senate com- rnijtee and yesterday talked for five hours with the House group. No Chance in Policy Following Acheson's talk on [he Hous* side, Committee Chairman Kee (D-WVa) said that he knows of "no proposed change in the policy of our government in the Far East or anywhere else In the world." President Truman last week Meat-loving Peterson Manlm was flnsd 840 in Platercbucii. South Africa, for forging a note ordering a local butcher to give him a quantity of "kooKvlets" (cooking mean, roast baaf, top< •Jde. *•**, and Allot. h made clear that the U. S. govern- ernment would give no military help toward saving Formosa, where the Chinese Nationalists are holed up. It was understood that in his confidential talks with Senate and House members, Acheson had discussed Far Eastern Issues to a much greater degree than he would consider doing on the record. Objects to ftcpoHa There was some Indication that he objected to reports of his Tuesday talk as given out by Senate committee members, These members were In tome disagreement as to whether Acheson told them that the U. S. has an Impregnable defense line In the Pacific without .Including Formosa. Taft tied into the administration'* Formosan stand while Acheson was still cloewted with the House group, -Taft said that the, United grossing, but expressed the opinion that the "schools are now In such shape that such delay would not be critical. Last summer, the board spent $111,100.97 on repair and replacement in the schools Reports on Library Plans The board also heard a report by R. R. Ready, administrative assistant in charge of curriculum, advocating a more extensive public summer library plan for the schools. The plan Ready advanced would provide for all schools to be opened to the public at some hours of the day. Ready also announced a plan to extend the summer school program in the district to the elementary level, allowing students who fail to be promoted because of illness or other absence to make up their work and progress with their class. The board also accepted bids on equipment for the Johnson street school kitchen and cafeteria. Low bidder on the kitchen equipment was Duke Co., of St. Louis, with a bid of $13,598.90. Low bidders on the cafeteria equipment were C. J Jacoby Co., of Alton, for chairs, $1171.60, and Len A. Maune Co. of St. Louis, for tables, $1011.85. The board also approved tentative .plans for the new vocational building to be constructed on the Alton High site and instructed A. H. Goedde, the architect, to proceed with working drawings and specifications. In conjunction with the building, the board also passed a motion to hold ah election Jan ^8 to approve the construction Because the building will be financed by a gift from the Olin Foundation the election will be only to construct the building and will not concern additional revenue The new builldng will not require an increased tax rate to the district. The board also discussed the problem of placing fire escapes on Horace Mann school and decided to ,.u d) S; uss the situation further with Fire Chief James Lewis, Jonnsqn recommended the resignation of Miss Verna Robertson as a teacher in the district be accepted and the -hiring of Miss Marian Heldlnger as a teacher. The board voted to accept both recommendations. Blondes Help Japs Following an appeal for fine blonde hairs for its hygrometer- Japanese black hair being too coarse — the Mizusawa, Tokyo, observatory has received enough blonde hair from 14 people In the United States, Canada and France, to supply the instrument for 20 years. It measures humidity; the hahr contracts or expands according to the amount of moisture in the air.

My heart is filled with sadness, My eyes shed many a tear, God only knows how I miss him At the end of this long, long year. Sadly missed by Wife. Leone, And all who loved him.
