For All r Departments ESTES PROBE SET JUNE 27 Stock Trading Slower NEW YORK (UPI) -Stock trading slowed on the New York Stock Exchange today, and prices were slightly higher. At times the ticker tape, spouting like a pressure stream the previous seven or more sessions, fell quiet for a second or two. The day started with prices up, and by noon most stocks were holding gains, although not as marked as in the early hour. Trading .for the two hours to noon was 1,600,000 shares, compared •with "2,310,000 at the same time Tuesday. Averages of the price levels were higher. The Standard & Poor's index of 500 stocks was 58.06, up 0.49, at noon, and the Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was 601.99, up 7.03. Traders said they were encouraged by the tone the market had set on Tuesday. It closed only slightly higher, but it resisted some selling which in a weaker market might have dropped quotations. Gains by leading issues in the final half-hour of trading Tuesday and news from the U.S. .Commerce Department that April business sales reached record highs encouraged some Wall Street observers. One analyst said buyers needed only a "little encouragement" to pull the market out of its recent slump. Tuesday's late rally after a see-saw start brought the Dow Jones industrial averages and Standard & Poor's 500 leading stocks above Monday's close. Col. ume was 6,140,000 shares and left more issues with losses than gains, 58-1507. Traders did not appear to be influenced by Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon's speech Monday night, in which he said the Kennedy administration planned "top- to-bottom" tax cuts in 1963. Most of the price changes were jn parts of a dollar, even for relatively high-priced shares, Mon. day's loss in dollar values was not regained, however.

PLAN CONCRETE TOPPING FOR UTILITY HOLES Repairs on Logansport streets, made by the water, electric and gas utilities, must be topped with eight inches of concrete, according to an announcement made during the weekly meeting of the board of works Wednesday morning.

Nixon Back On Victory Trail SAN FRANCISCO (WD-'Richard M. Nixon was back on the victory track today. The man who narrowly lost the presidency in 1960 won the Republican nomination for'governor in Tuesday's primary election by a 2-1 margin. But ahead lies a clash on Nov. 6 against Democratic incumbent Gov. Edmund G. ('Pat) Brown. ~ , Nixon defeated a young 'Con?, servative, state Assemblyman Joseph C. Shell of Los/Angeles. Brown running against only token opposition, had a mucK.. : easier time' winning the DemoCratic'nod. Returns 'froiri 17,637'^of the state's 31,212 precincts gave Nixon 558,735, Shell 295,135. : >%t the same .time, Brown ran up 7.84,130 votes on the' Democratic.,ballot against a combined, total 'of 129,369 for his three little known opponents. \ ' The 49-year-old former-, vice president face's a formidable task in the fall. But the rewards are great—control of a state which in 1963 will be the nation's most heavily populated, plus leadership of a potent political;force in.1964 when the presidency once again will be at'stake, California's registration favors Democrats by almost 3-2. ^The Shell-JNixon results showed a : definite cleavage in -GOP ranks between conservatives and moderates—a split Nixon,hopes to heal in the months ahead. 'Shell, conceding the .nomination to Nixon early today,-had this to say when.asked if he will support Nixon next .fall: , . -• ' "Actually, .that decision,;rests more, with him' than with me. I stand firm: for, certain principles of government. I will support any candidate who through action as well as words will espouse these principles (of conservatism) and will endorse these commitments." '.'Shell' added "-that if- Nixon and Brown debate during the coming campaign "it will be a real pillow fight." ' ' Nixon Jubilant Nixon .was jubilant in an appearance in his Los Angeles headquarters in sharp contrast to 19,60 when in similar surroundings he sadly made a virtual concession to President-to-be John F. Kennedy. , , ., .Flanked „by his smiling wife, Pat,^ Nixon said he would meet with Shell and predicted "we; will go forward to a great victory in November."" '-.'.- ^ In earlier statements Nixon conceded that he must hold 90 per cent o! the Bepublieans next No- vember and pick up 20 per cen 1 of the Democrats in order to bea Brown, a man .who surged into office in 1958 by a margin of mon than one million over former U.S Sen. William F. Knowland. Expects (o Win Brown predicted it would be a "hard, lough fight" next Novem ber but said "with our record be hind us and the future before us we will win." Another primary, test between conservatives and so-called middl of-the-road Republicans saw U.S Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel, minority whip in the Senate, an easy vie tor over two conservative challen gers. Kuchel's opponent in Novembe will be state Sen. Richard Rich ards of Los Angeles, a man whom Kuchel defeated six years ago b almost -450,000 votes.

AVERT STRIKE Goldberg Prodded Railroads 7 Offer CHICAGO (UPI) -Negotiators for 11 unions representing 450,000 off-train employes Tuesday night accepted a wage increase of 10.2 cents an hour offered by the nation's railroads, ending a strike threat: The railroads warned the settlement may lead to rate hikes or layoff of employes. Separate work rules talks be tween fji'e railroads and five op- eraling brotherhoods continued with no report of progress. The agreement announced by George E. Leighly, chief union negotiator, and J. E. Wolfe, head of the railroads; bargaining team, ended a nine-month dispute. With mediation procedures under the Federal Railway Labor Act exhausted, the non-operating em- ployes had been free to strike since last Sunday. Under Prodding Wolfe said the railroads made the 10.2-cent offer—recommended by a presidential emergency board —under prodding from Labor Secretary Arthur Goldberg. "Carriers have been of the opinion ... that the recommendations were inflationary and contrary to the public policy as expressed by President Kennedy. Nevertheless, the carriers were advised by Secretary Go'ldberg that a disruption of service! of one or more key railroads could not be tolerated. The railniads were left without an alternative but to. accept the board's recommendations," Wolfe, said. ' He estimated the wage boost would cost the railroads 8105 million. Impact on Carriere "The irjipact of this additional expense on the carriers Is indeed serious. .Many railroads are not in financial position to pay wages in effect prior to the increase," he said. Wolfe Jias estimated lhat non- operating employes have been av. eraging 8J.4& an hour. "The possibility of Iwosling rales must not be overlooked. Also, there! is the possibility tliat many thxijusunds o£ railroad em- ployes who might otherwise have retained Iheir jobs will be relieved by railroads which can no longer ai:lprd to keop them. There* is no question but that railroads w;il have to consider raising rates," hik said..
