7 Years as Man
Picked Up for Quiz,

to Be Faker.
Bv the Associated Press.
ST. LOUIS, March 17.—'"Busboy”
Ann Brock deliberated today a "return
to the farm,” her seven-year mas
ouerade as a man at an end.
Discovery that the 27-year-old cafe
teria worker was a woman was an
nounced by city hospital physicians
yesterday. Police became suspicious
after the supposed young man was
picked up for routine questioning.
Chief of Detectives John J. Carroll
said the "busboy,” who gave the name
of John Brock, admitted her Identity
and told him she came to St. Louis
seven years ago. She adopted the
masquerade, the detectives said, be
cause she had been informed it was
easier for men to obtain work than
women.
Detained at police headquarters the
black-haired, slightly built woman ex
pressed concern over the possible loss
of her job.
"I guess 1 11 have to go back to the
farm," she remarked.

Consumer Merchandise.
A series of new maps picturing po
tential markets in the United States
for all types of consumer merchandise
and factors affecting trade has been
completed by the Marketing Research

kets so that manufacturers and dis
tributors may more definitely locate
localities in which opportunities for
distribution of their products is large,

urban markets, and that distributors
located in towns may also serve the
larger part of the rural market ad
joining the towns in which they op
erate, it was reported.
