Stocks NEW YORK (AP) - Stock market prices softened late this afternoon in moderate trading. Volume for the day was estimated at 4.4 million shares compared with 4.3 million Tuesday. Key stocks lost from fractions to a point or more. Among higher-priced, more speculative issues the declines ran to 4 or Worse. Some of the merger-effected railroads were higher in response to latest developments. Steels continued their slightly higher tone based on prospects for continued high-level production. Some blue chips which were strong recently took losses on profit taking. International Harvester fell more than a point. Woolworth and Eastman Kodak were down a point or so. Down more than 4 were IBM and Xerox. Control Data slipped more than a point. Sperry Rand, sold actively, looked like the most active stock as it took a fractional loss.
