The Dow average was up over 30 points near the close, fueled, by a surge in a number of blue-chip stocks including Caterpillar, Procter & Gamble and AT&T. ' Broad market indexes were mixed. . ' . Stocks rallied at the open, latching on to a bond market rally that was spurred by a report showing a decline in October home buying. The National Association of Realtors reported sales of previously owned homes dropped 1.9 percent in .October, the first decline in six months despite falling mortgage rates.

Investors have been banking on the Fed to cut interest rates at its policy-making meeting on Dec. 19. Lower rates would be a positive for the equities market because they would make stocks more attractive relative to fixed-return investments like bonds. Lower rates would also cut corporate financing costs and thus push earnings higher, analyst said. Speculation of a rate cut helped push ahead banking, brokerage and utility stocks, all of which' are interest rate sensitive. A surge in a number of blue-chip issues also secured the Dow industrials' record for the day. But Hugh Johnson, senior vice president at First Albany Corp. in Albany. N.Y., said that there was no clear, focus leading the broader market. "It's hard to discern a pattern," Johnson said. "You have very divergent markets" with the technology stocks working to a different beat than the rest of the market. It Works Wonders. American Heart Association By Jim Carlton From The Wall Street Journal CHIBA, Japan Nintendo Co. demonstrated its new game player. Ultra 64, for the first time, and appears to have delivered on its promise to technologically leapfrog its two major competitors in the hard-fought video-game wars. The player, unveiled at a trade show here over the weekend, basically uses a ' powerful .microprocessor and . new software from Silicon Graphics Inc. famous for the workstations used to create the animation in "Jurassic Park" to turbocharge an older cartridge-based ' technology with realistic 3-D imaging ability. The product represents a big gamble for Nintendo. To develop enough games for the new machine, Nintendo was forced to delay its market launch from the Christmas season until April Meanwhile, Sega Enterprises Ltd. and Sony Corp. are already offering advanced pjayers that use CD-ROM drives and disks. But many game developers and analysts at the show said Nintendo has won its technology bet and that the delays won't hurt the company. They ( say the Ultra 64, which processes information in 64-bit chunks, offers more horsepower and better 360-degree, 3-D effects and sound than Sega's Saturn and Sony's PlayStation, which are based on 32-bit technology. And because it uses the old cartridge format, the Ultra 64 will be priced at about $250 in stores, compared with about $300 for Saturn and PlayStation, Nintendo says. Angel Studios, a computer-animation firm in Carlsbad, Calif., which has already developed a game for Saturn, says it now plans to concentrate on a forthcoming Ultra 64 title, a "virtual" racing game called Buggie-Boogie. "Nothing can match the Nintendo machine, at least for a while,"i says Brad Hunt, chief technology officer for the firm, which produced special effects for the movie "Lawnmower Man." "We've been doing (special-effects) work , on $250.000 . SGI ' workstations," . . says Michael Limber, the firm's chief operating officer. "The Ultra 64 appears, almost exactly the same.". Adds Jim Willcox, senior editor at Twice, a trade magazine in New York: "Nintendo is delivering a better system at a lower price than competitive systems on ' the market." Nintendo could still trip up for reasons having little to do with technology. Sony's PlayStation, which gets high marks from game players, has already attracted a lot of game-developer support and is trouncing - Sega in sales. Japan's Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. is also about to climb into the ring, with a line of 64-bit players expected to be launched in the United States next year using advanced technology it licensed, from 3DO Co.. a Redwood City, Calif., company. Amid all this, many software developers have been abandoning the dated cartridge format for the CD-ROM technology used by Sony and Sega players, as well as personal-computer makers. CD,-ROM games cost less to make, ana can store more graphical material than cartridges. Potentially, developers could find larger markets and greater profits in the CD-ROM world. Without sufficient games, analysts say Ultra 64 sales would languish. Indeed, Nintendo's Virtual Boy, an advanced portable player, has gotten off to a shaky start because of what the company acknowledges was a dearth of compelling games at the launch last summer. But Nintendo is a grizzled veteran with a few tricks up ;its sleeve and a $4 billion cash trove to boot. It has hedged its bets by relying on its own game-making talent and forging alliances with big independent developers to make titles. Those developers include three major producers: Acclaim Entertainment Inc., WMS Industries Inc. and Electronic Arts Inc. "The developers would put their software on biscuits if biscuits were the . largest-selling," says Howard Lincoln, chairman of Nintendo's big Nintendo of America unit in Redmond, Wash. "This is a battle for us to win or lose based on quality." Nintendo is working on a new storage device for Ultra 64 to overcome the limit on the amount of information that can be crammed into a cartridge. The device is expected to be some kind of magnetic recording disk but won't be unveiled until perhaps late next year. And Nintendo officials say the cartridge games still run faster than CD-ROM games, which can bog down in tasks such as switching from one game level to the next. Silicon Graphics' hardware and software technology, moreover, appears to at least temporarily elevate the cartridge games to a level beyond the existing, competition. It allows players to zoom in and out of scenes without losing any image clarity, as now happens on the competing players. Also uniquely, it removes the fuzzy boundaries around objects that make them look artificial, and lets the computer create 3-D images on the fly rather than having them preprogrammed in a cumbersome manner, says George Zachary, manager of I Silicon Graphics' consumer-electronics marketing.
