A.&B, CO. STOCK
BRINGS PROFIT OF
49.900 PER CENT.
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
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

he was very.mucH alive painting the
