Price were around their best at the close. Atlantic Coast Line Railroad was the center of strength and closed At 7% at'115%, its highest price of the day and a new high for the year. A number of other railroads in the higher priced category gained from 1 to around 3 points. Others added good fractions. The remainder of the list spread out over a range of between 1 and 2 points higher to fractions lower with the great bulk of the list on the upside. ; There was no boom tendency in the advance, however, with the volume of business restricted to an .estimated 1,100,000 shares. Steels held steady. Higher were U.S. Steel, Studebaker, Johns-Manville, Douglas Aircraft, Standard Oil (NJ), and Allied Chemical. U. S. government bonds in the over-the-counter market were steady. Soybeans on Spree CHICAGO, June 4, .a*—'Soybeans shot up as much as 10 cents, the daily limit, in a wild buying spree on the Board of Trade today. All soybean contracts made new seasonal highs. The 10-cent gain was recorded about an hour before the close of both the July and September contracts. Crude soybean oil gained % to 11 cents a pound. Bean oil futures and lard also were higher, but only by small amounts. Meanwhile, the basic grains could get nowhere. For most of the session they were fractionally to about a cent under the previous close. They climbed a bit after beans had jumped 10 cents, largely in sympathy with ,that market. Heavy covering by previous short sellers was behind the soybean advance. They feared a scarcity of beans here for delivery purposes when it became known that 166 cars were loaded out of this market overnight. It also was reported a steamer was loading 111,000 bushels for lake shipment. Selling in the major grains reflected a private crop forecast of .enormous wheat, corn and oats crops. All wheat deliveries except December sank to new lows on the crop in the early trade. December touched its previous low. Preliminary estimated receipts of grain in carlots: wheat 4, corn 107, oats 6, rye 5, barley 7 and soybeans 17.

EAST ALTON Business Mirror Manufacturers Changing Faces fly 8AM DAWSO\ NEW VORK, June 4, X - The big fellow in the manufacturing ield keeps growing right along. But his make-up has been chang. ng even faster than his size. The largest manufacturing companies are likely to have more hareholders nowadays than enr iloyes—the days of the bfg Indr Idual shareholdings are number- d. They are likely to pa/ almost as much In taxes as they do in wages nd salaries—and four times as much in taxes as in dividends. And they have anywhere from 7000 to $50, assets for each mploye. The 100 largest manufacturing ompanies — that excludes rail- oads, communications, banks, in- urance companies, retail and ervice companies—are listed by he National City Bank of New ork on the basis of total 1951 as- ets after deducting reserves for epreciation. Getting Bigger They range from Jersey Standrd Oil with almost five billion ollars in assets to Crane Co. with 72 million dollars. They are the op among 100,000 manufacturing orporations and 200,000 manufac- urlng plants owned by individuals nd partnerships in the United tates. These 100 employ 4,200,000 per- ons and have 5,400,000 sharehold- rs. But it must be remembered hat many of the shareholders may e duplications—one man may own :ock in several of the 100 corpora- ons. Thirty-one of the 100 have more than 50,000 registered share- olders; and 52 have more share- olders than employes. The shareholders own a total of 16 million shares, representing an quity in the companies of almost 0 billion dollars. The average investment per em- loye is $14,000 — ranging from 7000 in the auto industry to $50,000 n tobacco companies. The 100 pay 17V 2 billion in wags, salaries and such labor bene- ts as pensions, insurance and aid vacations. This,averages $4100 year per employe. The bank also looks into the bal- nce sheets of these top 100. Their ital assets top 60 billion dollars— 1 billion for land, plant and equip- icnt, and 35 billion for cash, se- irities, inventories and receiv- bles. Sales Total 78 Billion Their sales and other receipts .st year totalled more than 78 illion dollars. Costs ate up 93.1 ercent of that, leaving less than •i billion as net income after tax- s, or 6.9 percent of sales. This income was divided up almost evenly between dividends and einvestments in the business. But federal income and excess rofits taxes totalled almost seven llion dollars, and other federal, ate, local, and foreign, taxes add- more than four billion dollars r a total of around 11 billion. The bank philosophizes on what icse balance sheets of the big fel- ws show, as follows: "The figures show how there is o inherent conflict, but instead a ose partnership relation between he interests of employes and hareholders, with some people upplying the brains and labor, nd others ihe tools ad capital, lach group is necessary to t v oth- r. "In addition, the reports for 1P"1 low the rapid ascendancy of a hird 'partner' in business — gov- rnment—which although contribut- ng neither capital nor labor now akes a lion's share of the profits.
