Bv Max Buckingham (Copyrfeht 1937 by United Press) New York, Feb. 18 (UP) The stock market was concerned tonight over government action on "hot money" and what effect it will have on foreign investment, the speeding up of European armament plans, domestic labor situations and elimination of the "free ride" in stock transactiins. These have had sufficient force to make the market almost trend-less. Trading today crossed the 2,000,000 share mark snd there were signs of strength in such issues as steels, coppers and some oils. But there were weaknesses in communications issues American Telephone dropped 2 1-2 points to a new low for the year and irregularity in other sections. Railroad fssues showed fairly well in early trading but the movement died out and there was no test of the October highs, a move many professional traders have be" awaiting. The "hot money" foreign funds invested here question is one of the major considerations. The government undoubtedly will act soon as such investments now total seven billion dollars. But it was pointed out that foreign traders who have securities here paying around 10 per cent will not care to liquidate them even with a small i tax when the best they can get ! at, home is around 4 per cent. I The foreign situation presents ' further complications through I Great Britain's plans for tremen-j dous armament expenditures. This I has hurt the British high-grade securities market, since it means a rise in income taxes, and also has brought misgivings here. Some feel that the plan emphasizes ex-jpectations of an approaching crisis -to the tangled internati'onal politi- ; cal situation. This naturally leads to market unsettlement. Ihe domestic labor situation caused hesitancy because investors feared labor differences might cut into the high operating steel rates. No bearishness developed but new commitments were scarce. Meanwhile some groups felt that the ban on "free rides" in the marketgenerally accepted as an excellent ruling might have curtailed floor operations. Business continued excellent and prevented bean'shness from developing. CLOSES VARY ON COTTON EXCHANGE New Orleans, Feb. 18 (UP) Prices on the New Orleans Cotton Exchange closed one point lower to three higher after a dull sessi'on today. Most trading was switching from March to later futures, in preparation for first notice day on March contracts. Hedging was offset by trade buying to fix prices. President Roosevelt's message on the normal granary plan had no effect on the market. March was up one point at 12.46 ard May gained three to 12.38. Middling spots lost seven to 12.83.

(Special) One hundred and twenty-five flood-weary sailors descended upon Rosedale Monday and Tuesday in the wake of the crest. Tired and cold and very wet, they sprawled all over the place. Mr. Trapp at the Colom'al Inn could not accomodate them all though he spread old-fashioned pallets and turned down every available bed. The over-flow spent the night at the cafes, to be just warm. They were the crews from the powered life hoals sent out to the flood area from the naval station at Philadelphia. They have followed the crest from Cincinnati down in open boats and were wet from the spray and too tired to care. They spent the night before their arrival here at Friars Point where there was no hotel available and the Legi'on Hut was the only shelter afforded. Go Where ihe CrowJT?
