Steel shares were in demand at higher prices, and most other major groups advanced, as a decision on whether the union will strike Sunday midnight was postponed during delays of the Wage Stabilization Board in reaching agreement on recommendations for settlement. Prices were up between 1 and 2 points throughout the list. Minus signs were scattered and small. The volume of trading was restricted to an estimated 1,200,000 shares, somewhat higher than the unusually low total of 1,090,000 shares traded yesterday. Elgin National Watch, well ahead yesterday on news of its new electric wrist watch, backed down fractionally today under profit-taking. Higher stocks included U. S. Steel, Bethlehem Steel, Youngs- lown Sheet & Tube, Chrysler. Netv York Central, Texac Co., American Can, and Radio Corp. U. S. government bonds were steady in the over-the-counter market.

NAVAL SCENES NEVER BEFORE FILMED I §OMMIIND ^^"^ "*"" Ml 'AM NANC1 «<1.iiAM OCM MartSMK Pe OOW Reunion in feno: Businessmen Sec Signs of Decontrol By SAM I1AWSOV NEW YORK, March 20, /T Businessmen see first signs today that the days of controls may be numbered. Decontrol won't come quickly or all at once, they ndmlt. But there's a chance that some price controls will be dropped next week «nd that before the end of the year Ihe present form of rationing out metals and other raw materials will he scrapped. America's productivity — and not a change in government policy •—will be the lever to pry controls off business and industry, businessmen feel. Productivity has put many goods and materials In such abundant supply that they arc now selling well below the ceiling prices the government Imposed lo halt the price runaway after Korea. Such goods and materials may soon come out from under controls. Hopeful, Hut I'nccrtnln Hopeful are I hose, who produce and process wool, cotton, hides, tallow, burlap, and edible fats and oils — hopeful, but far from certain, of course. Already there's promise of more steel, aluminum and copper products after July 1 for makers of refrigerators, stoves, washing machines and other consumer durable products. Easing demand and increasing supplies make it possible. The National Production Authority says today it hopes to raise some ;:ieel rations (now held to 50 percent of base period use) to 65 percent of this pre-Korean base by July 1. Aluminum rations will go up from the present 30 percent to 50 percent; and brass mill products from 35 percent to 40 percent by summer. Price control relaxation—which the Office of Price Stabilization says it is considering for some products next week-probably won't be clear across Ihe board for any one product. Want Decontrol For example, feed manufacturers and soybean processors yesterday urged OPS to grant, them complete decontrol of prices. But OPS officials indicated that full decontrol is unlikely now, that the ceiling price of soybean meal might be raised instead, and (hat OPS want- cd a formula that would let them slap controls back on if prices start to rise again. One Ihing worrying price controllers in Ihe feed situation is Ihe report yesterday by Secretary of Argiculture Brannan that farmers aren't planning lo plant as many acres of corn Ihis year as his department thinks will'he needed if meat production is to rise as hoped. If Hie corn crop is smaller than hoped for, feed prices could rise--and that would likely show up later in rising prices of meat at the butcher shop.
