NEW YORK (UP-H - Analyst Eliot Janeway does noi regard Ihe current rally as one which will push through Lo new record highs and draw in t h c general public. Nor does he feel the end o. ihe rally will lead to any kind of ne\v break. What Janeway does expccr if a new sinking spell from a somewhat higher level to Ihe next resistance poim foilowed by a big rally past rhe old records. The limited scale of profit taking lo dale and the failure of selling pressure to build up at ail during this period augurs well for Ihe market, according to Bache Co. FREEDOM LKAJL'ISR IDENXrFIEI). This East German soldier, whose leap over a barbed wire barricade between Bast and West Berlin symbolized the repressions of the Berlin Wall, never was named. Now, two years later, he has been identified and traced to a village in West Germany where he lives with his wife and 11-month-old son. PROPOSES NEW SYMBOL ! PRATT. Kan.
