INDUSTRIALS ARE BULLISH Favorites Touch New Highs for 15 Months TNEW YORK, (A 1 )--Prime industrials, with steels conspicuous, took charge of the climbing forces in Friday's stock market and many favorites touched new highs for 15 months or longer on the largest volume for the year to date. Bullish inspiration again was ascribed mainly to the war news, investment demand and a slight touch of inflationary temperature. Rising tendencies appeared at the start, although recently buoyant utilities and rails inclined to rest. Gains ran to around 2 points at the best. These were trimmed here and there in the final hour and scattered losers were in evidence. Activity slowed in the afternoon but transfers were in the neighborhood of 1,200,00 shares. At peak levels for 1942-43 were Chrysler, Goodyear, U. S. Rubber, N o r t h American, International Telephone. International Nickel, Westinghouse, Allied Chemical, Eastman Kodak, Standard Oil (N. J.), Texas company, United Merchants and Manufacturers, Pepsi- Cola and Warner Brothers. Well in front were Bethlehem, Kenne- cott, Omnibus corporation, American Tobacco "B," Montgomery Ward, Douglas Aircraft, Glenn Martin, Boeing and Youngstown Sheet. Wavering issues were American Telephone, Santa Fe, Oliver Farm, U. S. Gypsum, American Can and Johns-Man ville. Bonds maintained their equilibrium.
