T 36 EUROPE TENSION MAKES REACTION Early Rally Attempt Becomes Disorderly Retreat in Trade NEW YOKK, yP| -- Heaviest selling in five months Friday smashed stock market prices 1 to more than 6 points as Wall street's fright over Europe apparently turned an early rallying attempt into a disorderly retreat. Gains ran to a point or so for leaders at the start, but the forward move soon gave way to a blast of offerings that put the ticker tape several minutes behind. Transfers were around 3,000,000 shaies. Word that Hitler would make a speech tomorrow, with the possibility of touching off the much- feared explosion, was blamed partly for the turning of the market tide. In addition, business news was none too comforting and happenings at Washington provided scant stimulation. Fading of the late rally, brokers said, reflected renewed fears o£ what Hitler might say in his speech Saturday.
