Selective recoveries cropped up at the start but most of. these faded near mid-day, nt the close declines ranged from fractions to 2 points or so. While scattered Issues breasted the current the majority never got far in front. Mild cheer was seen in the fact selling continued of the slack variety and brokers spoke of the usual week-end lightening ol commitments as mainly responsible for softening prices. Transfers dwindled to around 400,000 shares. A little more pessimism nncnt possible reverses on tar Pacific battlefields served to keep many bidders in the background, it was suggested. A lot of good earnings state mcnts and favorable dividends remained as props of individual stocks but-even these were reluctant in the matter of registering progress. The disposition to hold J -HIS aloof pending more information on 1324 new ' ax legislation also was apparent. A downturn in commodities, j with hogs falling as much as 15 to Bjpi ' 5 ^ cents a hundredweight, tended .Wiito chill bullish spirits. Cotton, in late trades, was in arrears 30 to 60 cents a bale.

It likewise carried $6,000,000 for United States participation in the proposed Inter-American highway and $5,000,000 for the maintenance of enemy diplomats in the United States, as well as to finance American diplomats in belligerent countries.

O'Neal said that the bureau's preliminary findings indicate these FSA practices among others: "Assignment of quotas of the number of clients to be secured in counties in order to expend funds appropriated by congress and to maintain personnel employed by the agency. "Burdening of clients with excessive loans beyond their ability ever to repay, resulting in a complete loss of hope and breakdown of morale.
