THE ENQUIRER, CINCINNATI, THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1930 Stocks Develop Strong Tone At Close RALLY Made On Small Volume Montgomery Ward Again Is Subject To Bear Attack. Steels And Amusement Issues Are Features Of Session Oils React, With Cut In Crude. rCC'IAL DISPATCH 10 TH. SNQtTIIUCX. New York, January 15 The stock market developed a decidedly strong tone during the afternoon session today, following more or less Irregularity and heaviness during the morning. Immediately after the opening renewed pressure was exerted against Montgomery Ward and a few other Issues and while some of these nave ground readily, the main body of stocks held quite well. Montgomery Ward dropped more than five points to make a new bottom under 39 and a number of the pivotal issues eased off from a point to three points. For the most part, however, prices did not give way to ny material extent and this probably was the basis for the renewed courage of traders, who began to buy stocks in the afternoon. The rally which got under way soon after mid-day took prices briskly forward on comparatively little volume and closing quotations were not only well above the earlier low-levels of the day, but showed fair sized net gains over Tuesday's final prices in the majority of cases. United States Steel closed at 172 Vi, with a gain of nearly l'i points. 'American Can showed a corresponding train to close above 125, Montgomery Ward was actually off three points STATE OF OHIO, TMVISION OF SKf'l'R-1TIFS. DEPARTMENT OK fOMMEKCE.

A wide variety of other stocks ended the day with net advances averaging one to two points. "While the report persisted that the forthcoming statement of earnings of Montgomery Ward would be rather disappointing, officials took occasion to deny reports that the company is closing its retail stores. It was stated that out of a,total of 550 stores only one of two were closed because of unsatisfactory location and that the company is not diminishing its mall order promotive efforts and will continue to open additional retail outlets. There were several encouraging news developments during the afternoon. The Philadelphia Federal Reserve Tank lowered its rediscount rate to conform to the 4'j per cent rate of the New York institution and there was a decidedly easy tone In the credit situation. Call money eased off to 4 per cent and was available at 33 per cent in the outside market. Amusement and theater issues were outstanding strong spots during the afternoon, with Fox assuming a prominent position in the upswing. This stock gained nearly 2 points to get within a fraction of 23. while Loew's advanced nearly 3 points to sell above 51 and Famous Players ran up to 51 for a gain of nearly 2 points.

Motor shares were again Inclined toward heaviness and most of them eased off moderately. There were rumors in some quarters to the effect that General Motors soon would announce new financing on a large scale, but those close to the company declared such reports to be without foundation. The petroleum stocks were somewhat in supply, following the announcement of crude oil price reductions by two prominent companies, which probably will be fol lowed by a general price adjustment In all the Important producing areas. While most stocks were displaying a greatly improved tone, there were several specific stocks failing to participate In the better sentiment. Radio closed at the lowest price of the day, Timken was off a fraction and U. S. Freight sold off on light volume. Utility stocks as a group were in much better demand.

Building: The principal office of the Bank of Manhattan Trust Company will be located in The Manhattan Company Building, which is now being erected on the north side of Wall Street, New York City, adjacent to the Assay Office and Sub-Treasury of the United States, and extending through to Pine Street. This is one of the most desirable locations for a bank and office building in the Wall Street financial district. The building rises to a height of 70 stories and will be one of the outstanding commercial structures in the world. Except for a small portion on the westerly side of the Pine Street frontage, the building is scheduled for completion by May 1, 1930. Forty Wall Street Corporation has entered into a contract with the United States Government for the purchase of the Assay Office site, adjoining the building. The statistics contained herein with respect to the estimated income of the building, the deductions therefrom and the estimated value of the completed property, are based on the acquisition and improvement of a small tract (aggregating 1,117 square feet) proposed to be presently acquired from the Government, but exclude the bal ance of the Assay Office property, possession of which cannot be presently obtained. Earnings: The annual income of the completed building has been independently estimated as follow Grow Income fjfl67,899 Operating Expenses, Ground Rent, Maintenance, Insurance, Allowance for Vacancies of $400000 which is over ten per cent of the estimated annual rent roll (exclusive of the space to be occupied by the Bank of Manhattan Trust Company), and Taxes, other than Income Taxes 2, HI, 000 Balance 2,726,S99 Maximum Annual Interest on these Bonds f 710,000 The Bank of Manhattan Trust Company, a subsidiary of The Manhattan Company, has leased and contracted to lease space in the building at an annual rental of over $1,000,000, of which over $893,000 commences May 1, 1930 and the balance prior to May 1, 1931. Leases and contracts for leases have already been signed for more than sixty per cent of the estimated net rentable area of the building. The annual rental from space already leased or contracted to be leased is considerably in excess of estimated annual operating expenses, maintenance, insurance and real estate taxes, average annual ground rent and maximum annual interest charges on these Bonds. Security: These Bonds are, in the opinion of counsel, secured by a direct first mortgage on the land owned in fee by Forty Wall Street Corporation and the leasehold estates of the Corporation, subject to the aforementioned lease of space to the Bank of Manhattan Trust Company. The Corporation has agreed that if, by December 1, 1930, it shall have acquired the aforesaid small tract on Pine Street, aggregating approximately 1,117 square feet, it will convey this property to the Trustee, subject to no prior lien, as additional security for these Bonds. If such property shall not have been acquired by December 1, 1930, the Corporation agrees to retire, through the Sinking Fund, not less than $1,500,000 in principal amount of these Bonds. The value of the completed property, including fee, leaseholds and building, has been independently appraised at $22,000,000. On the basis of this valuation, these Bonds will represent less than a fifty-seven per cent loan. Completion of the building has been guaranteed by Starrett Brothers, Incorporated, and The Starrett Corporation. Management: The building is being erected by Starrett Brothers, Incorporated, lt is owned and will be operated by " Forty Wall Street Corporation, which, like Starrett Brothers, Incorporated, and Starrett Investing Cor poration, is a subsidiary of The Starrett Corporation.
