STOCK BRINGS PROFIT OF 49.900 PER CENT. - 1 Buys Bridgeport Concern's Paper For 10 Cents and Sells at, $50. - Albert Pollack, formerly coifnected with' the stock exchange house, of P. J. Goodhart & Co., of New Tork, bought 2,500 shares of the American & British Manufacturing Co.' of this city, at auc tion four years ago for $250. He was the only bidder., , That same stock'was a "war bride" yesterday, and 2, BOO , shares changed hands in the early trading at $50. 'It was reported that Mr. Pollack, or his successor as bargain hunter, could not resist the temptation to take a profit of 49,000 per1 cent. , , i , Records of the . auctiotn sales at Mueller's showed that three years ago a person with! more courage than Mr. Pollack bought 500 shares of the stock for $150, or 30 cents a share. He may be holding it for higher prices. ! These transactions took place when the American & British concern, a subsidiary of the International Power Co., was an ordnance company strug gling with only casual orders from the United States Government. -V-American 'British, yesterday, fol lowing news of its arrangement with the ' 1 Bethlehem Steel- Corporation, rivalled Mid vale Steel on; the curb . It opened with an overnight advance of 10 points and closed at 52 to 53. a gain of aboht i 3 points. Fluctuations during the day . were .more spirited because . a considerable block of the stock is owned by the International Power Co. which wnt into the hands of a ' receiver last January, and can only be sold by court order. The sup ply for speculative purposes, of - the $8, 000, 000 outstanding was thus limited.- '.;; ' ..-' ' ' Many rumors, mostly of little foun dation accompanied the demand for the stock. But it was learned that since the, company received its large war contracts and expended" its plants its affairs have been closely watched by a committee for which the counsel is Satterlee, Canfleld &v Stone. - Her bert L. Satterlee, head of the firm, is a brother-in-law of J. P. Morgan. The committee is composed of F. W. , Eldredge, Vice-President ,of the National City- Bank; Marsden J. Perry, the Rhode Island capitalist, Henderson of Division "T" not only won the "We Are It" in his division, but had the largest score in the four men's divisions. Flushed with mighty well earned victory Henderson issued v an open challenge for any division 'to head "E" in the race tomorrow. There was no boasting but it was noticted that Division Chairman Wagoner and Bilton called , meetings of their cap tains. - 1 C. E. Biltoai's division "D" led the men's division with a total score of 30,a fine showing for the first day.' In fact the whole showing was good for the first day but the workers all real ized that there must be a gradual in crease every day. Everybody down -town' Saturday aiight wilX know there is something doing when the big automobile par ade goes through town. The fight is now on to se which team will have the highest, score - by that time for this is- the team which will have the place of. honor at the head of the par ade evenVnaki-ng the baTid take a. sec ond place. The band goes next, fol lowed by the team - with the second largest score, the rest of the teams following in the order of their stand tag.. -.".''. n.ariy this morning a man was found hanging by a rppe from the top of the building. But fortunately he was very.mucH alive painting the scores opposite the. teams on the im mense score board . almost covering the north side of the 'building.
