Steels, motors, rails, aircrafts and Industrial "blue chips" dipped fractions to 2 or more points at the worst. The ticker tape, though, loafed from the opening on and extreme declines were reduced here and there near the fourth hour. Accounts were trimmed because of the belief that the correction of the 4-year upswing could he extended. In arrears the greater part of the proceedings were U. S. Steel, Youngstown Sheet, Chrysler, General Motors, Santa Fe. Southern Railway, Union Pacific, Montgomery Ward. Douglas Aircraft, Boeing. DuPont, Eastman Kodak, Johns -Manville, American Telephone, General American Investors, Anaconda and Kennecott. Ahead at intervals were J. I. Case, Shamrock Oil, Roan Antelope. Cerro De Pasco and Allied Chemical. Among curb laggards were Aluminum of America, Cities Service, Bell Telephone of Canada and Singer Mfg. Modest plus signs were attached to Fansteel and Barium Steel. Buying Apathetic On Bond Market NEW YORK, Dec. 21 UP). The bond market drifted aimlessly in light dealings today with most issues holding close to previous levels. Pre-Christmas apathy settled over the list, and demand was lacking in all sections. A number of carriers were fractionally lower near midday Wut a selected few made slight gains. Tending toward lower levels at times were New Haven 4a of 1957, Inland Steel 3s, Texas 3s of 19S5, Rock Island refunding 4s, Great Northern 53 and several issues of Missouri Pacific 5s. Showing some improvement were Louisville te Nashville Pacific Gas Electric 3s of 1979, Northern Pacific 4 Vis, St. Louis San Francisco 4s, and Lehigh Valley stamped 4s. The foreign dollar list was quiet with Chile 6s among those showing narrow gains, and Colombia 3s down by a similar margin. Grace Is New Chairman Of Bethlehem Steel BETHLEHEM. Dec. 21 (A). Eugene G.
