tative extension of last week's rally,
followed by iireaular heaviness at

last hour with many substantial gains
at the active close.
Almost the sole exception was At
lantic Gulf, which fell 7 points to the
new. lot ow , recovering only a frac

motor specialties led the rebound, to

had a net gain of 7 1-2. Sales 800,000
Forecasts of the new year were
partly hopeful, but there waa no ef
fort to minimise the belief that fur

cede a clearing of the financial skies.
Adverse happenings over tho re

Wheat values rose to the highest
levels yet this season for May and to
the best figures since the first week In
December for March. From the out
set there was an active demand from
houses with eastern connections,
whereas offerings were light. Besides,
export purchases in the south west
were said to have been on a large scale
and to have included SOO.000 bushels
for France. Improved domestic call
for flour was also noted. Topmost
prices of the day were reached after
news came that the senate had over
ridden the presidental veto of the war
finance measure and that the house
would probably follow suit. Corn and

NEW YORK, Jan. 4. (A. P.)
For ten cents a year and up 7.000
toys of New York's East Side enjoy all
the fun facilities that a seven-story
ciud nouse can provide. They are
members of The Boys Club. It Is the
largest organization of its type in the
world, devoted solely to furnishing
wholesome recreation to the youths of
the congested tenement district sur
Any youngster In that part of the
metropolis can be a member, if he Is
between 7 and 21 years old. Annual
dues are paid according to heights,
beginning with a modest dime for those
under four feet, four Inches, and grow,
ing with the boy himself.
Happy Though Clean
The club has taught the East Side
gamins how to be happy though clean
by providing a big swimming pool.
Fringed around It . are gymnasium
game rooms, billiard parlors, and above
six more floors devoted to club rooms
and other amusement areas. Within
the Boys Club itself there 80 separate
clubs, each with adults as leaders,
Two-thirds of these leaders were army
officers durin gthe war.
Dividing popularity honors with the
-dimming pool is a lunch room where
a cup of cocoa sells for a penny and
cookies to go with it for a similar sum
Pretzel peddlars and handorgan wir
tuosoa steer clear of the neighborhood
of the club, for the boys have their
own eats and own music making in
struments. In the daytime there frequently are
only a few hundred youngsters within
the clubhouse and comparative quiet
exists. But after the schools release
their pupils and the working boys fin
ish the day's business duties. th,rpof
has a hard time staying on.
; Dont's Are Few
There are few "don'ts'' and fewer
"must do's" in the club, and each
member enjoys himself as he is wont.
Those desiring to "shoot a game" ot
pool do so, and those with penchants
for painting, dab the canvass to their
heart's content. Several of the boys
study In the National Acamedy of De
sign and one of the portraits hanging
In the Metropolitan Museum of Art
was done by a member of the club.
One evening each week each of two
hundred men of the city make them
selves boys again Just for the night
They are the leaders of the various
subsidiary clubs and organizations.
Pome of these men are college grad
uates and barons in the business world.
One of the founders of the club waa a
famous figure in America's railroad
and financial circles the late E. H.
Harrlman. With him In the early
work of building up the organization
were several Yale graduates.

Court street, Pendleton (Snow & Dayton's) and will
be at the services of taxpayers who desire an expert
accountant, formerly in the revenue service, in pre
paring their income tax statements.
Don't guess about it. Be sure about it Ask me.
W. D. CHAMBERLAIN.
As the story goes Mr. Harrlman was
conferring at the settlement club one
night forty-four years ago when a rock
broke through a window pane and
whizzed past his ear. Not to have the
Kast Side youngsters resort to rocks
and stones and "the rolling bones" for
their fun, he thought a well equipped
clubhouse necessary. And soon it came
into being, never to stop growing.
