EIGHT 1RONWOOD DAILY OlOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, MAY 18,1965. Market Prices Are Lower as Trading Lags NEW YORK (AP) — Prices were a little lower as stock market trading lagged early this afternoon. Losses of most key stocks were fractional, a few going to about a point. The list declined from the start, but the loss was not progressive. Prices stabilized at the lower levels. In some cases they improved over the opening. This was especially true for DuPont — which triggered a great deal of Monday's weakness. Selected blue chips gave ground mildly but many high quality issues showed little or no change. Selected issues bucked the downtrend. The news background was fairly encouraging despite the decline in steel production for the third straight week. Steels were unchanged to a little lower. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off .4 at 340.4 with industrials off .7, rails up .1 and utilities off .3. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was off 2.65 at 928.02. At the start, DuPont was down over a point but it erased the loss and showed a fractional net gain later. Prices were mixed in moderate trading on the American Stock Exchange. Corporate and U.S. government bonds were mostly unchanged. Trading was quiet. vlrs. Joseph Borich Mrs. Joseph Borich, 55, of 905 E. Ayer Street, died at the Grand View Hospital Mond a y afternoon.
