Stock Mart on Uneven Course NEW YORK (AP)-Steels declined in reaction to adverse news from their industry, but the stock market as a whole pursued an uneven course in slow trading early this afternoon. The market showed no apparent reaction to news that the U.S. Navy had stopped, boarded, and inspected a Soviet-chartered freighter. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off a minimal .1 at 211.5, with industrials up .3, rails down .3, and, utilities off .2. The pace of trading in the morning was exactly half of what it was Thursday when the day's total was 3.95 million shares. Bethlehem lost about 3 points. U.S. Steel was down about 2 and Youngstown Sheet well over a point. Du Pont helped shore up the averages by advancing more than 2. Among the "growth" issues, IBM slipped half a dozen points, Xerox 3, and Polaroid 2. American Telephone and Public Service Electric & Gas dropped about a point each. Aerospace issues mostly were down small fractions. Oils, rubbers, and nonferrous metals were irregular. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was off 1.55 at 569.31. Corporate and U.S. government bonds improved. Monkeying Around Mrs. Grog Mujica and that freedom-loving rhesus monkey, See the Gardening column item on Page I.

The increase was due primarily to a jump in meat prices following a withholding action by farmers in Midwestern areas who refused to send meat animals to market. The Labor Department's consumer price index had held steady during August at the record level set in July. But the September index rose to 106.1 per cent of the 1957-59 average. Ewan Clague, commissioner of the Bureau of Labor Satistics, said the major part of the rise was due to temporary or seasonal factors. He cited the farmers' withholding of livestock from market and seasonal increases in the prices of eggs and clothing. Clague said the meat situation had changed by mid-October, with wholesale prices dropping to about their August level and retail prices being reduced by about half the September increase. Clague said it was too early to tell whether the Cuban crisis will have any effect upon the cost of living. However, he added, there is no reason why it should, because there are no shortages in the United States. Instead, he said, there is oversupply in almost all areas. today...

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There is some scare food buying around the nation because of the Cuban crisis, but no concerted rush to strip shelves of canned goods and packaged staples, a survey showed today. As one food chain executive in the Washington, D.C.-Maryland area put it, the best indication of a scare would be in purchases of case lots and his chain has had none of that beyond normal sales. However, in Baltimore, Md., one woman bought $£; worth of canned goods and first-aid material, telling th e cashier she was heading for the hills of West Virginia. Grocers in Arizona reported a sharp upswing in sales of canned goods, baby food, canned milk, I etc., but nowhere near the report- I ed heavy buying in the Los Angeles area. In Los Angeles, city officials urged housewives to keep i a two-week supply of food on j hand. i From DCS Moines, Iowa, the ; report is that food buying is back ; to normal after a tsvo-day flurry. i In Ohio, officials of two chain stores in Cincinnati say sales are ; normal, with one official adding ; he saw "not even a trace of panic." Civil defense authorities are : giving this advice to house! holders: Stock your basement with a two-week supply of canned goods and water; plan on a quart of water per person each day as | adequate for drinking purposes | only. Supplies should include a i battery-powered radio, a first-aid I kit, blankets and warm clothing. in Garden City Elmer W. Haas, 1010 N. 4lh. Herman K.

Dale Saffels, his Democratic opponent for governor, appeared jointly Thursday night on an hour- long appearance over a radio and television network. Finances, operation of the penal and mental health programs and favoritism were the major topics of interest. i Each candidate was given seven questions by Carl Sisskind, news director of WIBW radio and television stations, who served as j moderator. Besides their answers, each was allowed to reply to the j other and each gave opr ing and closing statements. Saffels charged favoritism in the Anderson administration, citing charges of possible conflict of interest against highway commissioner George Gagel and former state GOP chairman Donald Schnacke. The engineering firm with which Schnacke is associated received a state contract and some farm land owned by Gagel in Johnson County may be in line for a pew highway routing. Anderson, in reply, referred to attorneys' fees paid Frank Theis, Democratic national committeeman, during the administration of former Gov. George Docking, a Democrat. On finances: Anderson predicted the legislature will have $30 million on hand when it starts work, and said it can do a good job. Saffels questioned his $30 million figure because of growing state obligations. He strongly opposed any tax increase by the legislature. Saffels charged the mental health program has deteriorated during Anderson's administration, citing resignations by several hospital officials. Anderson conceded there has been some "administrative trouble" but said the program is going ahead and patients are receiving better treatment. Saffels disagreed wiith the transfer of a building away from mental hospitals by the 1961 legislature, contending more beds are needed in the institutions.

The 60-year-old California-born author, who rose to fame with his novel "The Grapes of Wrath," is the sixth American to win the literary award—this year worth $49,656. For 30 years, Steinbeck has been turning out best oilers- many became prize-winning stage plays and films—and gained a reputation as a chronicler of social justice in the United States. His writings in recent years showed a versatility that emerged in his latest book, "Travels with Charley," an oft-whimsical story of U.S. travels with his dog Charley. Steinbeck, author of 27 books, was cited by the prize committee "for his at one and the same time realistic and imaginative writings, distinguished as they are by a sympathetic humor and a social perception." Steinbeck heard about the award at his home in Sag Harbor, N.Y. His wife told reporters it was "a great thrill" for him. Other American winners of the Nobel Prize for literature were Sinclair Lewis, Eugene O'Neill, Pearl Buck, William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. Thomas Stearns Eliot, American-born, also won the award, but after becoming a British subject.
