Better Supply The Business Survey Committee of the National Assn. of Purchasing Agents says its February report "confirms the slight leveling off in industrial and business orders that was reported in January by purchasing executives."

New orders for machine tools have slipped from their yearend peak, the National Machine Too Builders Assn. reports in Cleve land. But in spite of a drop in new orders in January the back log of orders in the industry re mains high. Industry spokesmen doubt If orders will pick up much for awhile but they have enough to keep them busy for months. Above last Year Retail trade has been leveling off. Department store sales stay above the year-ago mark. But tha if offset by the drop in retail auto sales and to some extent in home furnishings as home building ta pers off. The National Automobile Deal ers Assn. takes a dimmer view than do the auto makers in ' De troit. The association says a check of its members show many operat ing at a loss in January and Feb ruary. Seasonal factors get part o the blame, but association spokes men fear the industry oversol last year and will have to wai for the demand to catch, up. Auto makers are more optimis tic. They expect new car sales this month to top January, although to fall short of last year's record Justice Leans Over Backward BALTIMORE (/P)— Justice literal Ty leaned over backward in circuit court.

An academy executive said category committees on the East and West coasts had "agreed on what the categories should be." Webb said he would 'withdraw Dragnet from its nomination too If he had the authority. But the show belongs . to Sherry TV, a Music Corp .of America subsidiary, he said, and he does not control it. The actor recalled that Dragnet's three previous awards were, first, as "best mystery, action or adventure" series, then as "best mystery, adventure or intrigue" and last year as "best mystery or intrigue." Mystery Dropped "Now it is in a category dubiously called 'best action or adventure series'; the 'mystery' has been dropped," he added. "In this category they've put the meet conglomerate group of shows it's ever been my displeasure to .read about. "In it are Alfred Hitchcock Presents, which could be a mystery; Lineup, which is 'definitely a mystery show or documentary; and Dragnet. "But you tell me what Disneyland and Gunsmoke are doing in this category. "Gunsmoke is a pure Western and a good one, but there's no Western category, and it's been a big year for Westerns, includinr Wyatt Earp.
