Small sales of osnaburgs were reported for near by delivery on high priority. The wool goods market was like wise quiet as mills appeared to be sold up for the moment so far as the civilian trade is con cerned. Mills continued to operate heavily on govemmnet contracts. The rayon goods market was dull. Some weaving mills report ed a slackening in government orders as a result of cancellation of parachute cloth orders. -V NEW YORK FUTURES NEW YORK, April 21. — (£>) — Cotton futures closed from 5 to 30 cents a bale higher today.

As a result of this wartime pro gram, thousands of gallons of gas oline are being saved which in directly will flow into empty tanks of civilian cars. Steps taken by Antiaircraft Ar tillery Training Center motor pools to conserve not only fuel but pre cious rubber and mechanical parts include a GI bus-line to replace individual transportation on the post, and the elimination of waste ful habits carried over from civi lian life, such as “jack-rabbit” starts and motor-idling. Instead of army vehicles return ing to camp from bivouac areas or outlying training positions for gas, a scheduled run by a tank truck delivers the fuel daily. Mileage is checked daily on each vehicle, and any discrepancies that appear are immediately investiga ted. Motor pool authorities are as much concerned over a few drops wasted as the loss of hundreds of gallons, and as a result a cleaning solvent has replaced gasoline for cleaning mechanical parts. “No unnecessary trips” applies fully as much to officers as en listed men and many a Lt. Colonel may be seen waiting on the camp streets for a GI bus instead of requisitioning his own vehicle -V RED CROSS MEET SLATED AP ,26 The annual meeting of the Wil mington chapter of the American Red Cross will be held Wednes day afternoon, April 26. at 3:30 o’clock in the Tide Water assem bly room, Red Cross officials an nounced yesterday.

O’HARA NEW YORK, April 21.—®—Se lective investment bidding per sisted as a recovery prop for the stock market today but, as in the preceding session, sluggishness of dealings was far from bullish. Timid demand apparently again was based on the belief the recent reaction had taken into account the question of the forth-coming big Allied push into Europe and had put the list in a position to resume the advance on a wide scale when the long awaited in vasion gets under way.
