THURSDAY, MARCH », 1998 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGS THMB Stock Market Probe Merely 'Friendly Inquiry'-Fulbright Ry JAMKS MAKI.OW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time in more than 20 years the Senate today began a full investigation of the stock market. The cause: the market boom which has lasted 18 months. Prices are the highest in history. The pin-poses: 1. To see if there Is dani;or the boom may end In a bust like that ol 1820. The last Senate invcstisa- tlon. 1933-34, grew out of that bust. 2. To examine market practices and operations tinder the government restrictions and regulations imposed since the last investigation. 3. To see whether new regulations are needed to protect both the national economy and the general public from excesses or disaster. Full>rgifi< Chairman The inquiry, made by the Senate Banking Committee, opened on a soothing note. The chairman, Sen. Fulbright (D-Ark), emphasized he doesn't want to rock the boat — just look at it. A "friendly" Inquiry, he calls it. At lenst 20 top specialists in finance and industry, in and out of government, will appear as witnesses. After listening three weeks the committee will digest what it learned and then start again. The scope of the investigation can be understood from Fulbright's statement that his committee sought as witnesses people qualified in these fields: The general economic picture, business conditions, credit and tax policies, investment companies, pension fund and union fund participation in investments, equity financing and stock exchange member trading. In It's Fulbright's hope calmness wiil pervade the inquiry throughout, it is a hope which may have been misplaced. With all those experts sounding off, heated conflict seems inevitable. Questionnaires Mulled On Feb. 1 the committee mailed a questionnaire to 5,500 brokers, dealers, investment advisers, financial writers and economists. About 82 per cent replied. In general the participants in the .buying and selling of stocks expressed full confidence in the market. The economists as a group reflected, as Fulbright described it, a greater degree of caution. Fllbrlght pointedly expressed some concern about the impulsive people who have money to invest and may make decisions on the basis of one day's testimony by one witness. He said: "I want to suggest, merely as a cautionary reminder, that what may be heard on any single day LITTLl LIZ- Have polieoce with the person who giggles.

The National Association of Food Chains sponsored the awards, {Courier News Photo) 'Scientific Nibbling'Aid to Dieters HOLLYWOOD, Fla, W) — "Scion- fic nibbling," or eating part of a iieal between meals, may help con- •ol tendencies to gain too much veight, a food expert said today. But the nibbling "must be a part of what would have been eaten at lieals, not an extra," Dr. Frederick J. Stare, of Harvard University, said. He was one of the main speakers it the National Food Conference, "rom a high source may be at* .acked root and branch on the ollowing day by an equally high source. ' This was another way of saying: o matter what you hear from day o day, don't start guessing about he market until the full story is unfolded. which began today, sponsored by Swift & Co., as part of its centennial celebration. Dr. Stare, chairman of the department of nutrition at Harvard, said in a prepared address: "The aim is to decrease the number of calories eaten in a 24-hour period in order to lose weight. Scientific nibbling makes it easier j for some people to do just that." j ( "Contrary lo popular belief this is not the healthiest country in the world — particularly for men in their prime," he said. American males past the age of 45 die younger than those in 10 of 17 comparative countries, he added. "Food excesses may be far more dangerous than food deficiencies in a prosperous land like ours," he said, and pointed out that the death Attorney 'W.
