JPr-The shadow of international monetary uncertainty has thrust across finan cial markets anew Thursday and created fresh uneasiness that held price movements in a narrow area. While some sort of drastic action had been looked for in Belgium, as a result of the prolonged difficulty ex perienced with its currency, suspen sion of course and foreign exchange was a mild surprise, and brought i the financial community one step | nearer the realization that a shake up in international monetary units I was inevitable with its repercus i sums on world trade and finance an j unknown quantity. Stocks showed only a mild disposi tion to carry through with the mod est improvement made in the prev ious session and with few exceptions leaders see-sawed up and down in a fractional area. U. S. Smelting gave the market another shock by careen ing wrildly downhill for a loss of around 6 points before steadying, but other non-lerrous metals were inclined to go their own way and held about even. Continued adverse weather con ditions throughout the mid-west was reflected In the hesitant movement of Sears Roebuck. Montgomery Ward and Great Western Sugar which were offered in small volume and receded slightly. Coca Cola, star performer in Wed nesday's upturn, extended its ad vance nearly 2 points when fresh rumors of a possible stock split up were circulated. The cotton market was more un settled than any other international commodity and dipped around $1 a bale before steadying under renewed buying Wheat and other grains in Chicago were handicapped by the weather man with the trend slight ly lower in com and oats and barely steady in others The corporate bond market acted indifferently and U. S. governments reflected no special enthusiasm from the announcement In Washing ton that slightly more than $1,500. 000.000 out Of $1,850,000,000 of. 4% per cent liberty bonds called for re demption had been converted into new 2% per cent treasury bonds and that increased cash balances en abled the treasury' to reduce its week ly offering of discount bills.

This list of agreement signers was reported to County Judge O. C. Dancy Wednesday by the County Medical Society. MRSJPOLLEY (Continued from Page Onei " Texas, was stored with the Moody concern. Cotton went down in price, and the firm asked that Poiley put up additional funds to cover the lot*. He had already posted two 110,000 notes, evidence in the trial showed Poiley relused to further margin the account, defense claimed, and further contended that this was the equivalent of an order to sell. The cotton company, which has continued to hold the cotton since 1929, contended that through a spe cial arrangement it had the »ight to continue carrying Poiley on ihe ac count because of his excellent cred it rating with them. They contend ed that they had never received an expressed order to sell and have continued to carry the cotton for his estate. The Jury’s finding, in effect, was that the firm should have sold the cotton when Poiley refused to fur ther margin the account. The company as suing for about $212,000 advanced in purchasing the cotton and freight, storage and in surance brought the sum in con troversy up to about $325,000. It is believed that the Judgment, to be drawn, will be against the de fendant for difference between the cost of the cotton and the price it would have brought when Poiley allegedly refused to margin the ac count. Attorneys estimate that this would amount to about $12,000. The cotton, still held in storage at Gal veston. was bought at about 18 cents per pound. The suit was defended by H. B Galbraith of Brownsville and W. I. Davis of Center. Texas. This is the second trial of the case, a previous verdict having been reversed in hitl er court and sent back for new trial. Plaintiff counsel gave notice of ap peal. Mr*.
