MARKET "Buying for Income" Causes Bullish Trend New York, ()--Blue chip investment slocks came to the fore in Tuesday's market, after a lengthy period of apathy, and favorites pushed up fractions to around 2 points to 1944 peaks in one of the liveliest sessions ol .the past 4 months. The Wall street concensus was that "buying for income" was one of the main bullish inspirations, equities with consistent dividend records attracting strongest demand. Most near-closing quotations held around the best although there were scattered let-downs on profit-taking. Transfers approximated 1,200.000 shares. · In the "new high" division were American Telephone. Western Union "A" American Power Light Preferreds, Houston Oil, Wilson Co., General Motors, Chrysler, riu Pont, W h i t e Motors, Goodyear, Goodrich, U. S. Rubber and General Tire. Electric Power Light Preferreds" weakened and American Crystal Sugar dipped on an omittcci dividend. Rails and Aircrafts were narrow. Higher tendencies were exhibited by gilt-edge bonds.

(;P)--Scattered buying, influenced to some extent by firmness in securities and cotton, pushed all grain prices up fractionally in a generally quiet trade Tuesday. Price fluctuations in the wheat and oats pits were held within a narrow range by lack of incentive for traders to enter those markets. Rye prices at one time were up a cent from the low points as local traders began to accumulate offerings and found little for sale. Developments regarding Finland were being watched closely since in the past this country has been a good buyer of rye at times, although many believe export business under present conditions is out of the question.

Income Taxes Won't Be Made Till December Washington. (U.R)--Some of the 16,000,000 taxpayers claiming refunds for overpayment of 1043 la.xcs will have to wait until December -- maybe longer -- to get their money back. After March 15 they will draw 6 per cent interest on the amount duo them. Bureau of internal revenue officials said that while the law requires that refunds be made by June, there is no expectation that the job will be finished before the end of the year. Most taxpayers seeking refunds do so because of excess withholding. Refunds may run from. 10 cents to $1,000 but fiscal experts estimate the average at about $25. The bureau has adopted a policy whereby refunds due servicemen are handled 'first--and some servicemen who filed early returns are already receiving refunds. A majority of service returns have resulted in refunds because many servicemen had high salaries before going into army or navy. Income tax returns must be checked against employers' receipts. Returns claiming refunds . will generally be bandied first be-' cause the law requires promp't payment of refunds and because the bureau will have to pay the G per cent interest after March 15, no matter how small the payments may be.
