NEW YORK. April 4—Pushing a
strong comeback from the severe i
March decline, railroad bonds held
gains ranging to more titan 3 points ;
In active issues in late trading today. I
Secondary rails continued to climb |
as fast as they had gone down re
cently. Stimulating the buying, it
appeared, was the conference at Wash
ington between President Roosevelt
and representatives of rail manage
ment and labor, raising hope in finan
cial quarters some aid would be forth
coming soon for the industry.
A few of the more inactive issues
declined, but most domestic corporate :
obligations followed rails on the re-'
covery.
Heading the advance were such is
sues as Alleghany 5s of 1950, Balti
more & Ohio convertible 4'is, Inter-:
national Paper 5s. International Tele-j
phone 5s, New York Central 5s. Nickel
Plate 4’;s. Southern Railway 4s and
Southern Pacific 4’^s.
Most United States Treasury loans '
tended a little higher. Foreign bonds
Were mixed and narrow generally. j
National Rubber

t
Bj trip Associpt-ed Press.
AKRON. Ohio. April 4.—National
Rubber Machinery Co. was enjoined
Saturday from holding its scheduled
annual stockholders' meeting today, j
Judge Oscar A Hunslcker issued a
temporary injunction on petition of
Paul A. Frank, a stockholder, who
asserted "working capital has been
dissipated" and Nils A. Florirtan of !
New York, president, "is not qualified
because of lack of training and ex
perience.”
The company, one of the largest in ,
Its field, recently has been manufac- i
tuning tire equipment for Ford Motor
Co.

U. S. AIR CONDITIONING
ORDERED FOR PALACE
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK. April 4 — In Europe’s
strife-torn scene, at least one ruler is
concerned with a non-controversial
problem—that of personal comfort—
for Kin? Carol has ordered air-condi
tionin? equipment for Rumania's
royal palace, accordin? to announce
ment made by the York Ice Machinery
Corp.
Perhaps it was the heat of European
developments, or perhaps it was only
that the Kin? desired to be cool during
the hot summers in Bucharest; at any
rate, the export office of the York
company has received an order to
supply equipment to air condition the
quarters of the King, the ministers of
state, and of Prince Michael.

Board of Trade
At Chicago Marks
90th Anniversary
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, April 4.—The historic
Chicago Board of Trade was 90 years
old yesterday, but the birthday anni
versary inspired only mild celebration
at the foot of La Salle street.
Except for a few flags fluttering on
the building that dominates Chicago's
financial district, the close of the 4
score years and 10 in the career of the
world’s largest market for farm com
modities was almost ignored in the
city.
Grain merchants had little cause
for celebration. The most cheerful
talk heard on the trading floor was
that in 90 years the market has been
through many business recessions.
Now there is another lull that con
trasts strikingly with the hum of the
trading pits in 1937, when business was
| brisk and smiles numerous,
A birthday party scheduled for Sat
urday night was postponed until late
in the year.
