1931 reflects memories of music, movies and more
September 9, 2001
Seventy years ago, 1931. I interviewed a Kansas University man recently who was born in 1931. I was 10 years old in 1931, entered the fifth grade, tried to fly kites, began to collect movie handbills, started practicing songs for the Washington Bicentennial of 1932, and welcomed a new baby brother. Bing Crosby was singing “When the Blue of the Night,” Rudy Vallee was singing “Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries,” and Cab Calloway was singing “Minnie the Moocher,” “Hi-de-hi-de-hi-hi-de-hi-de-ho.” The Depression was definitely with us, and President Herbert Hoover had a split Congress, and the Reconstruction Finance Corporation was established. There were 9 million unemployed. U.S. Steel cut wages. Suicides numbered 20,000. There were breadlines, and the French Line advertised a fancy cruise for those who wanted to forget all that.

Fool take
September 9, 2001
No sector has had a tougher year than the telecommunications industry, and cell phone maker Nokia (NYSE: NOK), the leader in its field, hasn’t escaped the wreckage. The Finland-based company’s share price hit one low after another as demand for cell phones weakened and investors realized the build-out of expensive new phone networks, expected to boost cell phone sales, will take longer than originally anticipated. Nokia shares are trading around $15 each, down from a high of $50 in December. That doesn’t mean Nokia stock is cheap. The company’s fast growth, industry-leading position and efficient operations propelled its stock price into the stratosphere. Now, with a much lower stock price, Nokia is starting to look interesting again.

September 9, 2001
Who determines the price of a stock? — I.S., Brice, Ohio Ultimately, the price is what someone will pay for it. Each share of stock represents a share of ownership in a company, and the stock price is tied to what investors think the company is worth. The stock market is much like an auction, where shares trade at prices that buyers are willing to pay and sellers are willing to take. As people come to think that a firm is worth more and more, its stock price will rise — and vice versa.

KC rally organizers find ‘positive’ in diluted drug case Kansas City, Mo. Barb Wibbenmeyer says there’s a camaraderie among the people who may have gotten diluted chemotherapy drugs from pharmacist Robert R. Courtney. Wibbenmeyer was among the 50 people who turned out Saturday in Cancer Survivors Park for a rally to support people who may have gotten diluted chemotherapy drugs. Chris Whitley, center, above, of the US Attorney General’s Office, was one of the speakers during the rally. Wibbenmeyer said her doctor told her it’s likely some of her chemotherapy treatments were under-mixed by Courtney, who has admitted to the FBI that he diluted the drugs out of greed. Richard and Annette Bloch said they organized the rally to bring something positive out of that horrible news. Bloch co-founded H&R Block, and he and his wife started the R.A. Bloch Cancer Foundation, which sponsors a rally each June for cancer survivors. __________________________ Accident: Workers in Topeka manhole died from lack of oxygen Topeka The three men who died in a construction site manhole last month ran out of oxygen, according to an official with the Shawnee County District Coroner’s Office. The three men died Aug. 27 in the 23-foot hole while checking a new sewer line for leaks in a new subdivision in southwest Topeka. Autopsies won’t be completed for another couple of weeks, but chief medical investigator Sharon Mandel said the coroner’s office has determined the workers were overcome by the manhole’s oxygen-deficient atmosphere. The victims were Norman Emerson, 64, of Tecumseh; Lawrence Saloga, 53, of Pratt; and Brian Phelps, 22, of Topeka. They all were employed by Emerson Construction of Topeka. __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol tracks down lowest prices in town The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.599 at Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue.
