The market was buffeted by waves of selling on Tuesday and Wednesday, sending the Associated Press average of 60 stocks down a total of $4.50 for the two days. Opinion among Wall Street analysts was mixed about where the market will go. from here. Henry H. Baliour of Orvis Bros. & Co. commented the break appeared to be a necessary reaction from the market's recent record high levels and that it did not indicate any change in trend. "Business is good, and there is I a strong underlying demand for | sound equities," Balfour said. Burton St. John of Shearson, Hammill & Co. also remarked on "the good economic atmosphere" and said the outlook for earnings ! and dividends was good in 1955.

Lieutenants Life This bill was acted on before the sales tax measure. After backers had twice failed to get enough votes to pass it and the measure defelnittfy was dead, the governors associates disappeared from the chamber without waiting to see what happened to the sales tax bill. After getting the sales tax bill out of the way, the House defeated a Senate-approved measure which would have permitted liquor sales anywhere within 300 feet of a state line. The Senate killed the governor's income tax on a roll call vote to uphold its Revenue and Taxation Committee. Earlier in the day, the committee had refused to release the bill, holding it iir for "further study." Sen. Russell El rod of Siloam Springs then sought to force the ' bill out of committee, but his motion was defeated 16-14. (Continued from Page D im-ome.s below $5,000.
