What Ike Ate Didn't Agree with Market By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK ifv-Lives there a mm who has never had an up- let stomach? But when one particular man eats the wrong delicacy for dinner a flash flood of selling hits the stock m a r k e t .

Fortunately the hysteria w a s quickly over and calmer judgments took over the rule of the stock and other markets. What caused the flash flood?

I The battle of the budget is near- ·ing the crucial stage in Congress.! i Hanging fire are many interna-l dional negotiations--all the way 'from disarmament to specific! tariff questions affecting a handful of 'irms. | So the stock market reacted (first and reflected later. Observers of the stock market scene report that this time most of the selling appeared to be by the professionals--the in-and-out traders | j trying to cash in paper profits! that .uncertainty might threaten. | The great mass of stockholders. I the people all over the nation who I have a few or many shares tucked] away in strong boxes, sat tight.
