CARTHRIGHT. Maiurc'c RAILS CLIMB IN STOCK TRADE Many Other Leaders Unable to Make Grade New York, (/P)--Rails overrode profit taking in Friday's stock market and climbed to their best average level since 1937 but many leaders elsewhere were unable to make the grade. The transport section slipped with the rest after a fairly steady opening although it soon righted itself under supporting bids. Recent strong industrials, led by steels, backed away fractions to a point or so but extreme losses were reduced or cancelled near the close. Encouraging was the tapering of volume on the development of irregularity. Transfers of around 1,200,000 shares compared with 1,593,665 the day before. It was the llth million- share session this year. Bullish contingents still were buoyed by the revival of investment confidence attributed partly to the political outlook, earnings and war optimism. Many customers, however, cashed in on the idea a technical relapse was a possibility. Produce (Merchant Quotations) (Cash Quotations by E. G.

Most plans for handling juvenile delinquents include some provision for recreation, not only in prevention but in correction. For example, -in one Wisconsin town a group of high school boys said to tne council: "You squawk about the high school kids going to taverns outside of town. We've got to go somewhere. Where do you want us to go? What about the town auditorium? What are you saving it for. a museum?" The boys got the use of the auditorium.

But SHELVE MOTION ON PALESTINE Take No Action on British Viewpoint Washington, (A')--The house foreign committee, acting on the advice of military authorities, Friday shelved a resolution which would have put congress on record as disagreeing with Britain about the future of Palestine. The resolution called upon Ihe lawmakers to urge free migration of Jews into Palestine-and establishment of a Jewish commonwealth there. Such action would have been a declaration against the so-called "British white paper" under which the migration of Jews to Palestine will be kept under strict quota limitations after the end of this month.

S. high command to postpone action on the Palestine matter--on which resolutions were introduced in both chambers --for military reasons. Chairman Bloom (D-N.
