TEPPER'S SECOND FLOOR SHOE DEPT. DROP IN STEEL SALES CHECKED Chances Of Marked Gain In Demand Considered Limited, However NEW YORK, Nov. 3-(P)-Indications that the drop in steel buying has been checked were cited by "iron age" today. Chances of marked improvement were seen as limited, however, due to continued hand-to-mouth buying by the Automobile industry. The review said the outcome of the New York Automobile show is expected to have a pronounced effect on steel purchases of motor companies from now on.

"In keeping with the precipitous decline in steel ingot production," the survey added, "pig-iron, output dropped sharply in October, from 113,679 tons a day in the previous month to 93,311 tons, a loss of 17.9 per cent and the number of furnaces in blast was reduced from 181 on Oct. 1, to 151 on Nov. 1, this loss of 30 being the largest in one month since 1924 when 40 went out in April and 46 in May. "The sharpest drop in the 1929 slump was in November when' 26 furnaces were blown out. "Pig-iron production in October totalled 2,899,629 tons compared with 3,410,371 tong in September.

Last month's daily rate: was the lowest since September, 1936 when the figure was 91,010 tons, "October sales of steels were from 15 to 30 per cent below those of September, depending on the company and the product, the chief decline being suffered by the heavy steels. "Railroad buying is at rockbottom minimum as the carriers prepare their cases for rate rise application and an increase in passenger fares. "While rail buying is expected this winter it is believed now that important equipment purchases will be deferred pending a decision by the Interstate Commerce commission on further rate increases, which probably will not be announced for at least three months."

STORIES IN STAMPS STAMP THAT CAUSED TWO-NATION FEUD INTERNATIONAL stamp battle extraordinary. That was rousing outcome recently of the new Nicaraguan map stamp which included part of Honduran territory. At least. Honduras claimed the territory--hence the feud, which stopped short only of sending troops to the frontier. in question.

The new stamp. in the upper right section, shows a strip of territory marked "Territorio en Litigio" (in dispute). Honduras immediately asserted this area not to be in instead to be a part of Honduras. The disputed area. contended Honduras.

was adjudicated in 1906 by a Royal Spanish award which both countries accepted. So Honduras promptly barred the new stamp from that country. And in retaliation, Nicaragua banned a 1935 Honduran airmail stamp including the area in dispute as part of Honduras. So intense became the feud that many residents in Honduras were called home: orators of both countries broadcast bitter speeches the more zealous patriots urged war Mediation. however.

Negro Surrendered To Sheriff To Face Charges Of Attack NEW ORLEANS COTTON NEW ORLEANS, Nov. Bearish crop estimates, continued favorable weather in the belt and hedge selling brought moderate declines to the cotton market here today. In afternoon trading active positions were 3 to 10 points net lower with December at 7.75, March at 7.76, May at 7.81, July at 7.88, and October at 7.97. Trade demand appeared on all dips, but only in enough volume to absorb offerings at current levels. Business was active in pre-midsession dealings but tapered off in the afternoon for want of an incentive.

Traders were reluctant to enter upon new commitments in advance of the official crop estimate and general uncertainty over the textile situation. Private estimates issued today ranged from 17,116,000 to 000 bales. The latter figure, if realized would be the largest crop ever produced in the history of cotton growing.

Dale was in Huntsville at the constitutional convention, and many of the provisions in that constitution were offered by 1 him. He was, also, named a commissioner to locate the capital at Cahaba in Dallas county. Walton said that Dale, in all his long and useful life, made but one mistake of not locating the capital at Selma the high bluffs of the Alabama river. gasoline loading shovel, to speed up road work by handling gravel at a more rapid speed than is possible under the old method, has been started at the Burnsville pit where a check of the first day's operations showed that 60 yards of gravel an hour were being hauled.
