FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1941 THE The South' Greatest Newspaper Late Trading Finds Stock Market Unable To Hold Early Gains Selling For Income Tax Purposes Serves To Speed Up Session NEW YORK (Pi Further recoveries spotted Friday stock market but trends eventually turned a bit indefinite along with the war and business news. Gains of fractions to a point or so were well distributed in the forenoon, among steels, motors, rails, coppers, aircrafts, rubbers, mail orders and specialties. These were reduced or replaced with declines in some cases near the final hour. Transfers were at the rate of approximately 1,200.000 shares. There were numerous slowdowns during the attempted upswing but sizable blocks of low-priced stocks, apparently in the tax-selling class, kept volume relatively large. The fact the market recently had fallen to a new bottom since the Spring of 1938, brokers said, brought in some short covering and new buying on the theory a technical "correction" was in the offing. Bulletins from Far Eastern battle lines were sufficiently depressing to offset optimistic reports from Russia and Africa. Bonds were mixed and commodities generally a shade better. Stocks attracting support at one time or another included, U. S. Steel. Bethlehem, General Motors, Santa Fe. Great Northern, U. S. Rubber, Sears Roebuck. Douglas Aircraft. Western Union. Allied Chemical. American Smelting and Phelps Dodge. American Can and Union Pacific touched new lows for the move. Hesitant were Westinghouse. U. S. Gypsum. Standard Oil (N. J.l, American Telephone. Johns-Man-ville and International Nickel. Acting well in the curb were Gulf Oil. Brewster Aero, Humble Oil and Pennroad. Holders of shipbuilding shares were comforted by the statement of the Bureau of Labor Statistics that workers in this field would have to increase from about 500.000 currently to 734.000 by next November to take care of present contracts calling for construction of vessels aggregating more than $6,400,000,-000. Heartennig to market followers was the Dun & Bradstreet survey disclosing public spending throughout the country, which suffered a setback last week because of the entrance of the United States into the world conflict, had revived briskly in virtually all centers. The Christmas buying rush was resumed this week, the review added, at a tempo comparable with early December. For the nation as a whole retail activities were placed at 6 to 12 per cent ahead of the same week last year. Financial offices saw a sidewise slap at inflation in the Federal Reserve summary for the week ended Dec. 15 showing a drop of $750,000,000 in excess bank funds to $3,090,000,000. lowest level since December. 1938. The decrease reflected the treasury's new bond fi- nancing. tax payments and a jump in money in circulation. rMK, WHITE HOUU WASHIMOYOM DMMbir 17,-1941 to tU MOBEMMT 0 THB TOUTED STACK D 19Mt I M writing thin letter an net of . faith la tbn do, tiny of oar country.

Senator Hill said Friday. He said the War Department had informed him that basic facilities. such as sewerage disposal plants, water plants, and railroad lines, would be installed capable of serving two divisions, or 30,850 men. He said the work would start soon. He sid soon meant anywhere from 24 hours to 24 days but his "guess' was that it would mean about two weeks. It has not yet been determined whether the contract for building the camp will be in the form of a negotiated bid or awarded on a competitive basis. The land for the camp has previously been surveyed and is at the j disposal of the federal government, . Hill said He explained that the I land original belonged to the state but tharit had been used recently by the Farm Security Administration. Army officials spent some time in Ozark last Spring surveying and making plans for the army of the future. A number of camps were surveyed in various parts of the country. This is the first one announced since the country actually entered the war.

WASHINGTON (Pi Secretary Hull Friday formally denied reports spread here that the State Department had asked for a suspension of naval patrols around Hawaii during the progress of Hull's negotiations with Japanese envoys. In biting language, Secretary Hull declared there was not a shred of truth In the report and that he wished to deny it emphatically. The State Department has not conferred with the Navy Department on the question of patrols around Hawaii dr elsewhere in the Pacific. Secretary Hull said, and spreading of such rumors in such critical times could only come from some one whom he described as a mighty mean person who was. in effect, joining the fifth column in spreading foul and mendacious rumors. Rumors and reports, some of which have come from the congressional cloak room, it was said, declared suspension of patrols around Hawaii during the Hull-Nomura-Kurusu talks had been - a major factor in permitting the Japanese to make a surprise attack on Hawaii.

Southern States Study Freight Rates ATLANTA (VP) A plan for more nearly equalized and harmonized" freight rates, proposed by Chairman Walter R. McDonald, of the Georgia Public Service Commission, came before a meeting here Friday of the class rates policy committee of the Southern Governors Conference. The meeting was called by McDonald after railroads had applied to the Interstate Commerce Commission for a 10 per cent rate increase, Invited to participate in the discussions were committee members from North Carolina, South Carolina. Florida. Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana. McDonald's plan proposes that the ICC. rather than granting a horizontal freight rate increase, should approve graduated raises in various sections of the country. The chairman explained the carriers have asked for higher rates to offset wage boosts totalling $350,000,000. He added Southern railroads were io a position to absorb some of this additional cost without increasing rates because of a large gain in earnings in the last 10 months. Wake Island Marines Settle Chicago Strike CHICAGO tP) The marines on Wake Island and a policeman on picket detail settled a two-month-old defense plant strike in Chicago. Lt.
