High Ground Again, Then Pace Slows Down NEW YORK, (ffJ--The stock market rally faltered Saturday after an early upswing in which numerous issues again stepped into high ground for the past year or so. Profit-taking on Friday's bulge, and the desire of some traders to lighten commitments pending the president's speech to congress were believed by brokers to have contributed to the slow-down. Transfers for the two hours were around 600,000 shares. Business news was fairly encouraging, from a market standpoint, and Wall Street took a constructive view of the economy move inaugurated in congress. Observers also thought the European outlook had improved considerably. On the climbing side were U S Rubber Preferred, International Harvester, J. I. Case, Westinghouse, Union Pacific, United Fruit and Eastman Kodak. Backward tendencies were displayed by Douglas Aircraft, Boeing, United Aircraft, Sperry, Glenn Martin, American Can, u' S.
