Naw York, Jan. 23.—The subatao
tiai loan recorded in many porta of
the iat in Fridav cloeing trading
brought nervous offerings in today's
early transcations. While a slightly
firmer tone emanifested itself beforee
the aeloee of the short session, a lack
of Interest eras apparent, and trad
ing circles appeared Inclined to await
further constructive nears . develop
ments. Steel producers are watching
the Chicago wage conferences with
mom than usual interest. Further
economies by railroads probably would
release buying orders for rails and
other steel products and this buying
could easily assume large proportions
as many roads are urgently in need
of near equipment. The business out
look Is Uheiy to contine the key to
market trends. While business records
of the week were not particularly
cheerful in character. it is by no
msahs the rule for the first half of
January to give cleat indications of
the oapandlng volume of business
which in most yean* produces the
highest peak of the year in March and
April. (Look for increased reinvest
ment support around present levels
wttk the improved technical position
of the market warranting sharp re

ensemble. There was also a huge

polka dots that surely belonged to It.
and the white pumps with Mack trim,
which she already wore, could not
have been more suitable. An hour
later, she met Turner, happily serene
in the knowledge that she had met
the requirements of the party ad
mirably.
His glance told her that she was
right. He wore white flannels and
sport shirt open at the neck, with
black-trim white oxforda The night
was very warm. He looked younger,
and even more debonair than upon
the previous occasions when she had
seen him.
"You are never a disappointment,
are you?" he was delighted. “I’ve
been thinking about you a great deal
this week, and found that I missed
you very much. Did you happen to
think or me a little?"
"Os course. I did." she was pleas
antly matter-of-fact. “I hope you ac
complished what you wanted to do."

HENDERSON, (N. C.,) DAILY DISPATCH- SATURDAY. JANUARY 23, 1932
“Where did you learn to twim so well?"
aud carried under her arm a huge
ivory dice that must have measured
a cubic foot. A group of men and
girls were chattering tn the flood
lighted court that had been trans
ferred Into a giant play-board. Mar
cia was enchanted with the novelty
of It. when Jean explained that the
game was to he played by the men
versus the girls, who were the human
“pleceo." that would change their
positions as the dice decreed.
Fifteen gorgeously pajama-dad
girls, and fifteen mew took their
places on the board, while a player
at each end of the court rolled the
dice. The game developed a great
deal of hilarity, argument, and com
ment Wit sparkled, and spirits
mounted, encouraged further by the
drinks that were dispensed at a buffet
table oo the lawn, where a variety
cf refreshments were to be had be
tween gomes. Excitement was keen.
Marcia was astounded at the size
of the stakes, and the glibness with
which the opponents “doubled" them.
Apparently, their eagerness to win
was not prompted by the need to
win, ao much os by the Inherent urge
of the gamble. Dollar stakes that
were doubled, resulted In the ex
change of yellow banknotes, and left
Marcia breathler* with the audacity
of it.
At one time when Turner was one
of the players wtw“* hud the girls for
hla pieces In opposition to Jean, who
used the men, the game neared the
deciding point, with each of them
having a single piece on the board.
Marcia was Turner’s last "woman on
board." The others stood around the
court and cheered. In so conspicu
ous a moment. Marcia rejoiced that
she had made that especial effort to
find the right pajama costume. Stand
ing at the point of the painted pin

and with a group of socially promi
nent young people watching her. she
was grateful for her beauty, too. Such
moments justified It. There were sev
eral minutes of competitive excite
ment. while Jean and Turner rolled
thetr dice In unsuccessful turns.
"Tato te ’em. Jean. Cali ’em sweet
names." the girts shouted.
’Take me off this board. If you
lov* me," Jerry begged with mock
despair.
Jean rolled a one and a five, and
kicked over the dice with exaspera
tion. The white cube rolled over
saucily, and showed the three which
she needed to win. “These dice have
no sense of loyalty, tonight" she de
clared.
Turner made elaborate gestures of
Invocation. “Be good to your papa
now ” he coaxed, holding the huge
dkr *u hi* arms, and kissing them
both be for* ha rolled them over the
gran "Marcia doesn't want to stand
there all night you know. What? A

the champion. All ready to be hon

prize 7“

Marcia could not win the race
against Turner, of course, bur as she
climbed the ladder Just behind him
to rest on the ledge, he extended s
hand to help her. They sat swinging
their feet in the water, and watching
the others.
“Where did you learn to swim

pleased at her achievement.
She wrinkled her nose roguishly
“Paddling around In the muddy little
river that struggles past its toward
the Mississippi. Nothing like this."
she flung out her arms. “Bui every
thing serves Its own end. doesn t It!

He looked away from her and over
the brilliant scene. When he replied
his voice was very low. "Perhaps—
