Rail Stocks Lead Market New York, (;p)_Late demand for railway issues helped strengthen the entire stock market Friday. Casting off early indecision, the market moved ahead for gains of fractions to a point or more. The trading pace quickened as buying increased. Interest in the rails was a belated carryover from Thursday when the carriers surged ahead of other groups. Utilities, also popular Thursday, did better than most other groups. . Business Friday morning was slower than it has been for a couple of weeks but the late buying stepped up turnover to a rate of around 1,200,000 shares for the full session. SOUTH ST.
