Market ahead in heavy trade NEW YORK (UPI) - The stock market fought profit-taking pressures Wednesday afternoon to sustain a Thanksgiving rally that was based on lower interest rates and slower inflation. Trading was heavy. The Dow Jones industrial average, which had climbed more than nine points at the outset after soaring 18.45 points Tuesday, was ahead 6.76 points to 877 around noon. At 1 p.m. Wednesday the Dow Jones stood at 878.33, up 8.09. Tuesday's advance was the biggest since the Dow exploded 19.60 points on Oct. 30 and analysts said profit taking normally follows such large price increases. Advances led declines 939-465 among the 1,814 issues crossing the New York Stock Exchange tape. The three-hour NYSE turnover amounted to about 37,270,000 shares, up substantially from the 27,660,000 traded during the comparable period Wednesday. Analysts speculated the turnover would slow later in the day as investors left early for the hob'day, but take- ANR.. New York Stock Exchange 1 p.m. quotations Provided by A. G. Edwards Co. ..40V.

The stock market will be closed Thursday for the observance of Thanksgiving. Mobil, which had made an unfriendly $85-a-share bid for Marathon Oil, raised its offer to $126 a share for 51 percent of the Findlay, Ohio company's shares. U.S. Steel had offered $106-a-share for the firm and Marathon had accepted in the biggest merger battle in U.S. history. Mobil Tuesday won a restraining order preventing USS from proceeding with its $6.4 billion offer. Marathon Oil was off % to 106% before trading was halted, U.S. Steel was down V« to 29% and Mobil Corp. was off Mi to 26%. Investors generally remained encouraged that October consumer prices rose only 0.4 percent, down from 1.2 percent reported in September. That was a strong indication inflation has moderated. Some government economists said October's CPI figures may have been distorted a bit by technical factors. They said the inflation rate still is in the 8 to 9 percent area. The government's report late Tuesday that durable goods orders plunged 8 percent, the steepest decline in two and a half years, brought some insitutional investors off the sidelines because they believe the recession might be approaching its deepest point. Wall Street welcomed the fact that most of the nation's major banks Tuesday lowered their prime rate to 16 percent from 16% percent and Chase Manhattan slashed its key charge to 15% percent. The small Southwest Bank of St. Louis cut its prime to 15% percent early Wednesday. Stock prices as of noon Wednesday NEW YORK (UPI) — Selected stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.

Wheat was up 4M> to 3% cents; corn up 1 to 2Vi; oats up % to Vi; and soybeans up 2% to 4Vfe cents. The market advanced on ideas an upward correction was overdue and evening-up in front of the Thanksgiving holiday. Good exporter demand gave support in the corn and soybean pits. Floor sor- ces reported heavy commercial buying in wheat during the first few minutes of trading and scattered buying by commission houses and locals. Soybean meal was active on European markets. Substantially lower futures prices Tuesday dried up country movement of corn, soybeans and wheat, cash merchandisers said. The only exception was limited producer selling in central Ohio because of a shortage of storage space and active processor demand. Wheat Dec. 4.12V* up 4'/,; March 4.38 up 4; May 4.48 up 3V,.

Cooling trend, snow flurries fill forecast Thanksgiving Day celebrants may have to put on an extra sweater Thursday. But, it doesn't look like Kansans will have to get up from the kitchen table to do any serious snow shoveling. A cold front moving into the area is expected to drop Thursday's high temperatures into the 30s throughout much of Northwest and North-Central Kansas. That's 15-20 degrees cooler than originally forecast for Thursday. The cooling trend should start Wednesday night when winds switch to the north at 15 to 20 miles per hour. There's a chance of snow flurries in Northwest Kansas Wednesday night and early Thursday morning although National Weather Service forecasters expect little accumulation. The snow flurries should disappear Thursday morning with skies around the state becoming clear to partly cloudy. A chance of rain or some light snow will remain in the forecast through the long holiday weekend. Travelers heading for Colorado or Nebraska for holiday festivities stand a better chance of running into some heavier snow over the weekend. Wednesday, November 25,1981 — The Salina Journal Page 9 Williams Eshelman \ Sumey Railway workers retire following long careers "I've been working on the railroad, all the live long day," could easily be the song sung by Melvin Eshelman, 1201 N.

Williams, who is retiring after 35 years with the UP as a car inspector, said he hasn't made any retirement plans. "I think my wife has already got that figured out for me," Williams said. "She has a 'honey-do' list figured up for me. I don't think I'm going to live long enough to get it done." If he does have some free time, Williams said he'd like to go hunting, fishing and camping.

U.S. nuns safe; kidnapping tale apparently false GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala (UPI) — Two American nuns who disappeared last week in a violence-torn province of Guatemala were reported safe and back in the capital Wednesday and a U.S. official said it appeared they had not been abducted. A Guatemala City television station said the nuns, Helen Lavalle, 71, and Jean Reimer, 51, had returned to the capital after being found in the hamlet of San Felipe, 20 miles from the Mexican border. "We have no reason to disbelieve the reports, but we want to talk to them ourselves," an embassy spokesman said. He said news reports saying the nuns had been kidnapped apparently were false. "That's the first thing everyone assumes when someone disappears, but it doesn't seem to be the. case here," the spokesman said. "We're not sure what happened." mm :'."• , I , / Todays Records Hospital Admissions Aibury — Mrs. Kenneth Youngqutot, 1037 E.
