Wavering prices were accompanied by a slow-down in dealings. Transfers approximated 600,000 shares. Gains and declines of modest amount were about evenly divided at the close. Brokers said traders apparently were a trifle discouraged, at the refusal of the list to respond more enthusiastically to so-called "gocd news."
