Trading was moderate. Losses outnumbered gams by about 400 issues. In early trading there was a fairly even bal ance between plus and minus signs. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off 1 ,1 at 357.2 with industrials down 1.9, rails off .ft and utilities off .3. Analysts saw the weakness as due basically to the same causes which knocked the market down in December—higher- interest rates, tighter credit, and fear of further fiscal and monetary restraints as efforts are made to dampen the economy. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was down 8.52 at 943.37. Sharp losses by some prominent issues highlighted the decline, IBM dropped 10 points as it was hit by another civil antitrust suit, this one filed by Data Processing Financial it General Corp. Atlantic Richfield was down between 4 and 9 points, and Sinclair fell about 3 as they continued to react to fears that the government may challenge their proposed merger. Among active gainers, American Smelting tacked on about 2 points, Chadbourn-Gotham and LFC Financial a point or so each. United Fruit, a fractional gainer, paced the list on activity as it was turned over on a series of big blocks. Prices were mixed on the American Stock Exchange. Trading was a bit more active than on Friday. Husky Oil paced the list on volume, edging higher. Losses exceeding a point were taken by Asamera Oil and Ramada Inns, Fractional gains were made by Commonwealth United, Jetronic Industries and British Petroleum. Down fractionally were Loew's Theatres warrants. Great American Industries and GTI Corp. Hospital Notes Jefferson Memorial Admitted; Martorie Faye Dagg, 330 So. 3rd. John Justice, Route 0, Mt.

Roa& Afghan Pilot's Error? 50 Killed In London Air Crash GATWICK, England (AP) — The pilot of the Afghan jet airliner that crashed south of London early Sunday killing 50 people, may have misunderstood the visibility report from the airport, investigators said today. The Afghan pilot decided to make a landing run despite a warning from Gatwick Airport th&t visibility on the runway was down to 100 meters, or 328 feet. Although the Boeing 727 Was being guided by the airport's instrument landing system, the decision to land was up to the captain. Board of Trade inspector George Kelley said the minimum acceptable visibility for a Boeing 727 to land was about 400 meters. The investigators also said the plane should have been 300 feet up at the point where it crashed into a farm house two miles from the runway. When the pilot called Gatwick for a weather report about 2:30 a .m. Sunday, no aircraft had landed there for 10 hours because of thick.fog. The Board of Trade said that after being told that the visibility was down to the 100 meters in freezing fog, "the pilot elected to make an approach, indicating that if he OVershot be would divert to another airport Only IS people survived the crash, including a baby girl asleep in the farm house, which was smashed to rubble. Her parents Were killed. Most of —the 54 passengers a eight crew members aboard the Ariana Afghan Airlines plane were Afghans, Indians and Pakistanis coming from Kabul to London. Among: the dead was Karen Mix, about 16, daughter of a Pan American Airways maintenance man on loan to the Afghan airline. She was believed returning to the United States! after spending Christmas with her father in Kabul. Two Collisions Over Weekend Fire Destroys Television Set A television set was destroyed by fire Sunday afternoon at the home of Mrs, Stanely Brant, 2411 Perkins Avenue.

DEBATES ELECTORAL CHALLENGE (Continued From Page One) Two major damage accidents were reported in Mt Vemon during the weekend, Cars driven by Milorad Blagojevich, St Louis, Mo., and Jimmy R. Lipe, 20, 713 south 21st street collided Sunday afternoon at Tenth and Muin. The St. Louis car was? damaged over $100, the lipe vehicle about $50.

O'Hara, D-Mich. was made, they said, to dramatize a need for reform of the presidential election process. They challenged the vote of a North Carolina elector who ran pledged to Nixon but cast his ballot instead for third party candidate George C. Wallace. Legal and historical precedent, Muskie end O'Harc argued, require that electors follow the dictate of the popular presidential vote and not go their own way. Senate consideration of the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and other legislation is likely to be delayed by the traditional opening session wrangle over whether filibusters should bo easier to cut off. Ratification of the international treaty to prevent spread of nuclear weapons must be considered by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee before it goes to the floor. Lodge Named To Head Paris Peace Talks PARIS (AP) — The appointment of Henry Cabot Lodge as America's chief representative at the Paris negotiations dimmed hopes today that the talks to end the Vietnam war would start before President- eif-ct Nixon's inauguration Jan. 20. .Although Ambassador W. Averell Harriman will press ef- lotts to launch the conference in me two weeks he has left there stemed to be nothing the Americans could do to break the dead- loek over such procedural matters as the shape of the confer- eice table and the seating ar- langements. To the South Vietnamese, taking things slowly in the hope of greater sympathy from the new administration, Nixon's appointment of Lodge came as a shot in the arm. The Saigon leaders regard Lodge, whom they got to know as U.S, ambassador in Saigon, as a hardline hawk and a good friend to the present military regime. . Lodge's statement in Bonn Sunday night that he regards a i-ettlement in Vietnam "of supreme importance" seemed to mem little to them. South Vietnam's chief delegate to the talks, Ambassador Pnam Dang Lam, has had more than one stormy session with Harriman. But Lam, a former foreign minister, was on fine peisonal terms with Lodge. Leading members of President Nguyen Van Thieu's government focused much of their disappointment with .President Johnson's decision to halt the bombing of North Vietnam on Harriman. Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky spoke of misunderstandings with Harriman and attributed them to the 77- year-old envoy's tailing hearing. Harriman wears a hearing aid. Ky in particular is said to be 'ft that group of members of Thieu's government who boast close personal ties with Lodge. •'Lodge knows and likes Ky v^ry much," one South Vietnamese said, "and Ky likes him." Hanoi and the Viet Cong's National Liberation Front will be on the lookout for signs of a closer alignment of the Washington-Saigon positions after Jan. 20, and if this happens their own position inevitably will harden. Some U.S. officials seem worried that the effect of Lodge's appointment might be to under- j cut Harriman's authority between now and Jan. 20. But President Johnson has made clear that he intends to go on governing until the bell rings for him so his envoys will press on. Reds Want Round Table As things stand now, North Vietnam and the Viet Cong are standing fast on their plan for an unadorned roundtable that would give them both a status at the talks equal to that of their antagonists. The Americans are ready to accept this formula, but South Vietnam is standing fast on demand for some sort of dividing line that would symbolically relegate the Viet Cong to a place on North Vietnam's team. Wlule formally supporting Saigon's position, the Americans are reported ready to drop the demand for the dividing line. Oil Man Retires At McLeansboro W. L. Kinney, area superintendent, Marathon Oil Company, production department, Bridgeport, Illinois, has announced the retirement of D. Wilburn Smith, after rcuve than 3S years of company service.
