NEW YORK, Nov. 7.—Brokers sent out new margin calls today after yesterday's orgy of selling, which reduced values of stocks on the stock exchanges of the country by more than $15,000,000,000. The Industrial average 1 today stood within two points of its low of the year and the railroad average was at a new .low for 1929. Thus, the entire amount of the rally staged last Wednesday and Thursday has been wiped out. - , The margin calls going out today struck the wealthy stockholders and many of the newcomers In the market, who thought they could make a killing when prices were showing signs of recovery last week. Much of the selling yesterday represented liquidation of poorly margined accounts and according to representative brokerage houses there is much additional necessitous selling still Overhanging the market, The sudden decline of Steel to 165, within 7 7-8 of the year's low was a disconcerting factor on the street. According to one report the big holdings being liquidated were some.of the stock Involved" in the Steel corporation's acquisition of the Columbia Steel company. There was no/verification of the report or further information regarding details of, the deal, but it was presumed that Columbia shareholders would receive more than 200,000 shares of steel common. It was learned that the slump in prices of shares of the National City bank and the Corn Exchange bank probably would result in suspension of merger plans of the two Institutions. • At yesterday's closing National City bank stock was nearly .$200 a share under the price prevailing at the time of merger negotiations. The same was true of Corn Exchange. There is still apprehension regarding the immediate future of business, hut the Street, its well as the business leaders, is convinced that fundamental conditions of industry are sound, Tho action of radio companies tq reduce the price of their sets has brought out talk of further reductions in prices of luxuries. .Wall Street heard today that makers of high-priced auto- mobiles would cut their prices. The motor industry in general is reporting a falling off in Business, but It, nevertheless, la Id report ft record year In point of sales and production. Barnings have been reduced due to lower prices brought about by stiff competition.
