utilities pushed forward under re
newed demand.
Trading started at a fast pace,
blocks of several thousand shares
changing hands. The activity level
ed off later, but a subsequent buy

parly issues and the carriers brought
a sharp expansion of the volume.
Numerous stocks again were lifted
to new highs for the year and lon
ger.

ently still were secondary, as a mar
ket influence, to economic happen
ings. Grains furnished no stimulus
for equities, the majority exhibiting
a heavy tone. Cotton drifted lower.

Frederic J._Hasldn
This new book on the American Gov
ernment is as up-to-date as today's
newspaper—and as crisply and infor
matively written. It does not take
sides. It contains no propaganda. It
tells what every citizen desires and
needs to know about every detail of
the great machinery of Government
including the new Alphabet Bureaus
which every one is talking about.
Every statement is authentic.
