Four auto stocks Ford, GM, Studebaker and Chrysler appeared in the most active list. Electronics Up . It wa3 not a particularly active day for the glamour stocks, nor did appreciable price changes show. Recently booming Control Data, sometimes called the poor man's IBM, was ninth most active and gained Ya to 97Mj. IBM itself added 3V2 to 452. Data Control, sometimes called the poor man's Control Data, added 9 a to 29? 8 on the American Exchange. Savings and loan associations got both good and bad news, reacting with confu- sion. Extension of their home mortgage lending rights across state lines was discussed in Washington. But a clampdown on their recent interest rate boosts also was discussed. Financial Federation dropped ?s to 52? 8, First Charter was unchanged at 4134, and Wesco lost $8 to 43?8. Among the stocks hitting new lows for the year were Beckman Instruments, 67? 3, down l7a; Hoffman, 67s, down Ik; Kern County Land, 65V, down Vi, and Grumman, 40?8, down 1V4. Market Ahead Analysts explain the current decline in the face of good business reports by the orizing that the market runs about six months ahead of business conditions. It is not reflecting current business today, so goes the argument, but that of next spring. "This stock drop is a cor rection rather than a col lapse," comments Sidney B. Lurie, a partner of Joseph- thai & Co. "It's healthy and long overdue, but it's not a eell-off of major importance, and we look for sharply higher prices by the end of the year." View Disputed This view is disputed by Bradbury K. Thurlow, vice president of Winslow, Cohu & Stetson, Inc.: "I think we have hit an important top and I'm inclined to be bearish." Thurlow is disturbed by the weak technical condition of th market, surge of low-priced stocks. Thurlow's conclusion: He wouldn't be surprised to see a 100-point or steeper drop in the Dow-Jones industrial average over the next year or two. ' ! Ill teT.
