The Dow Jones industrial average fell 21.20 points to 770.57, the lowest level since Nov. 23, 1970. In Cleveland, the Central National Bank announced it was hiking its prime interest rate to a record 12V 4 per cent. Previously, economists had said the prime interest rate would peak at 12 per cent. The prime interest rate is what a bank charges its big corporate customers, and it is viewed as a barometer of the nation's money supply. A year ago the prime rate was about 7.5 per cent. The market, unsettled for weeks by steadily increasing business loan demand in a tight money market which has pushed lending rates to new highs almost weekly, has been particularly susceptible to unfavorable interpretation of both actual news announcements and rumors.

"With sidelined surplus buying power almost certainly at a new high for the past 12 months, the market's overall technical condition now should favor another recovery rather than a deep collapse....," the firm says. "Whether the market rallies from current levels, a high degree of caution is advised," according to Merkin & Co. "Any rally could be very temporary. A lack of a rally could lead to a further considerable drop with a possible downside of 650,700 in the Dow Jones industrials," the firm'said. The downward bias the market has shown lately is "not indicative of any serious selling pressure," according to E. F. Hutton & Co. The firm noted there has been an absence of bids lately! Whether this trend continues should be known soon, the firm says. Harris, Upham & Co. believes the market is in an oversold condition and this could lead to "a technical rally." But the firm believes once such a rally occurs, the Dow will fall much lower due to selling pressure.

Mass killers to life imprisonment STOCKTON, Calif. (UPI) Two drifters, accused of killing 17 persons in a two-state crime spree, were sentenced to life imprisonment Monday by a judge who said they should never be freed because of "the enormity and depravity" of their crimes.

Gretzler said that, when they went to the Parkin home, they did not find the grocer but held Ms two children, ages 11 and nine, and Debbie Earl, 18, a babysitter, captive waiting for Parkin to return home., Before the grocer returned home, the babysitter's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Earl, and their 15-year-old son and Debbie's boyfriend showed up.
