Addison, jr.
S. William Miller of the Union
fTrust Co., who is attending to the

sports, and to the fact that all reserva
tions should be in by tomorrow.
City Near Depression’s End.
Washington is rated as one of the
leading cities in the country "nearest
rut of the depression” by Brooke,
Smith <fe French, Detroit and New
York advertising agency. Richmond
Is also in the list, both cities being
considered not more than 10 per cent
below normal.
Washington was one of 38 cities
that enjoyed a business increase of 5
per cent during April, the survey says
During the month the Capital climbed
from 12 per cent below normal to 7
per cant below. At the end of April
a year ago the city's business stood at
23 per cent under normal, the report
cays.
April witnessed the mo6t noteworthy
rise of any month since the beginning
of the recovery period, with a gain of
6 percentage points in the national
index, the advertising agency’s report
states. Other months have recorded
higher gains in percentage figures, but
their improvement was from much
lower levels. April began with na
tional business 21 per cent below nor
mal; it ended only 15 per cent below.
One year ago, the index was 29 per
cent below normal.
"Improvement was widespread.”

areas, 97 bettered their percentage
standings over March, 6 of them ris
ing above normal for the first time.”

DEBT IS SHIFTED
BY GERMAN LLOYD
Stock Reduced to Provide for New
Shares to Take Up Heavy
Losses.
By the Associated Press.
BREMEN, Germany, May 20 —The
North German Lloyd-Hapag Shipping
Lines announced a decrease of capita]
stock in the proportion of five shares
for one yesterday and the transfer
of 35,132.000 marks/(about *14,050,
000) and 40,000,800 marks, re
spectively, of their Webts into share!
to meet heavy losses in 1934 anc
1300.
Transfer of the debts to shares
which increases the capital stock ol
both the united lines to the origins
amount, gives the German govern
ment a decisive influence over botl
companies, financial circles said.
The German government for years
has subsidized North German Uoy<
& Hapag. but the statement did noi
specify which hebts were transferrec
to shares and the extent of th<
finance ministry's influence remains
undisclosed.
North German Lloyd claims a 12.11
per cent increase in passenger servici
to the United States despite a shrink

NEW YORK. May 20—The stork
market pushed quietly ahead today
to finish firm, with gains of fractions
to a point or so.
An irregular opening was followed
by a generally higher drift as it be
came apparent to traders that sellu -
was drying up following Tuesday J
miId shake-out. Transfers approv.
mated 700.000 shares.
The gain of 3.1 per cent in F W.
Woolworth s April sales over the like
month a year ago and the declaration
or a $2.25 dividend by American Tele
phone Co., were apparently regarde i
by the financial district as part of th:
current flow of generally favorab;
business news Woolworth firmed to
ward the finish^
Share gainers included U. S St”*l •
Bethlehem Steel, Chrysler. General
Motors, Westinghouse. Case Inter
national Harvester, American Car..
Telephone. American Wat^r
Works. Consolidated Edison. New York
Central. Santa Fe. Delaware & Hud
son, Union Pacific and Cerro de Pas'o
Resisting the general rise with de
clines of fractions to around a poi.v
were U. S. Industrial Alcohol. Johns
Manville and Standard Oil of Indiana.
Bonds were steady, with U. S. Go\ -
ernment obligations in demand For
eign currencies were slightly higher.
Wheat finished with gains of 7a of a
cent to 27s cents.
CHICAGO GRAIN
By the Associated Press.
CHIQAGO. May 20—Prices of Ms
wheat delivery in Chicago jumped 3 ’ k
cents a bushel late today, reaching the
topmost point attained in several
weeks.
Suggestions of a possible marked
squeeze in month-end settlements of
May contracts were current and nu
merous traders who were short of sup
plies became anxious bidders. The im •
mediate reason, however, for soaring
of prices was word that mills north
west had become active purchasers of
July delivery and that reports Indi
cated less favorable crop prospects in
Spring wheat States.
