The Senate Finance Committee gave final approval Tuesday to a bill increasing Social Security benefits 11 percent in two steps over the next seven months. A 7 Percent boost would be effecitve on enactment of the legislation, with an additional 4 percent increase taking effect next June. The House has passed a similar bill, but in that version the 7 percent boost would take effect next jVlarch. Both measures would boost Social Security taxes by raising the maximum amount of earnings subject to the payroll levy to $13,200 in 1974 compared with 510,800 this year.

Administration energy adviser John Love said Tuesday a White House announcement was expected, possibly by today, on the closing of gasoline stations nationwide on weekends. "The pessimism is beginning to breed on itself," said Ralph Acampora, of Harris, Upham Co. "In board rooms and on the exchange floors, there's an awful lot of gloom and doom." However, six months from now, investors may look upon the recent trading as the bottom of the bear market, Acampora said. Many brokers began the day expecting some rally, however brief, to interrupt the rash of selling. As it failed to materialize, Larry Wachtel, of Bache observed: "If we don't get a technical rally here soon, I'd say the market is discounting the end of the United States." Institutions like banks and pension funds, which dominate the market, were more active Tuesday, stepping up their selling, Borne brokers said. On Monday, prices declined because the institutions failed to take action either to buy or sell. Another apparent factor In the decline was margin calls. In margin buying, investors put up only a percentage of the stock price in cash. If the price of a stock drops, investors have to put up more cash, or sell. Many decided Tuesday to sell, brokers said. Experts noted that another indicator of the broad and dramatic declines in stock prices Tuesday was that 1,454 issues traded on the New York Stock Exchange showed losses in value while only 161 made gains. Stock sales totaled 23,960,000 shares Tuesday, up sharply from the 16,700,000 volume Monday. This turnover indicated to many analysts the far-reaching institutional nature of the sell-off. "This is an ongoing decline," said one broker late in the day's fading. "There isn't a bH o- 'he fi-r wishes.
