But there may be E grave danger that it will do so,' Benjamin Graham told the Senate Banking Committee. He is chair man of the Graham-Newman Investment Corp. and a professor ol finance in the Columbia Univei-' sity School of Business. Graham and Gen. Robert E Wood, chairman of the Sears Roebuck & Co. Finance Committee, were called as today's witnesses in the committee's inquiry into stock market conditions. Graham offered some specific advice for the average investor in his prepared, testimony: "50-50 Chance" '•The principles of the prudent investor will require him lo lighten significantly his holdings of common stocks—the precise selling policy to depend, of course, on his individual position and methods. 'For the stock speculator . we think he has a 50-50 chance—or perhaps a little better—of seeing the market attain substantially higher than present heights, subject to the probability of intervening reactions." But the chances of holding onto added profits indefinitely, Graham Kaid, are "no better than in former bull markets—arid that is none too good." Graham said normally Congress ,hould not "meddle with the stock market" but -that the time seems now to have come to consider taking the "risky and controversial" step of intervening. Wants Gains Tax Change He proposed that Congress give the President authority to make changes in the rate of the capital :ains tax so it could be lowered and its operations modified in an effort to increase the supply of common stock. He said he also is inclined to favor "a fiiirly rapid advance" toward putting margin requirements at 100 per cent so as to halt stock buying on credit. Marriner S. E c c ! e s, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, made a similar recommendation yesterday. Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith has urged an end to credit buying at once. Various witnesses from the financial community, however, have opposed raising margin requirements at this time. Today's other witness, Wood, expressed a view that buying of stock by pension and profit-sharing funds "unquestionably has had a cumulative marked effect on the stock market in recent years." Court Hears Traffic Cases Municipal Court convened morning and three traffic \vere heard. R. T. Roberts forfeited a $5 bond on a charge of running a red light. George Saliba forfeited a $10 bond on a speeding charge. J. B. Cunningham forfeited a $111.75 bond on a charge of driving a vehicle while intoxicated.

Kllday (D-Tex) said today many congressmen* hope that prospects of higher pay wfll attract enough volunteers into the armed services to permit "reducing or eliminating the draft." He cited this as one of several possible reasons for virtual House unanimity yesterday in voting 398-1 to give career servicemen pay boosts ranging from 6 and 25 per cent. Rep. Taber (R-NY) cast the only negative vote. The measure, which no* goes to the Senate, provides an average 11.9 per cent increase for enlisted men and warrant officers with over three years' service.
