Government Checking on Stock Market By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (AP)-Self-policing vs. government controls—an increasingly sore point in business- government relations—is brought sharply into focus today by an official study of what makes the etock market tick. How the question is finally settled is of great importance to investors, large and small—and by Implication to other parts of the business world fearful of increased or proposed government regulation. Stock exchanges and other handlers of securities think — as do leaders in many other industries—that since they are closest to their problems they are best equipped to regulate themselves and stop or prevent malpractice that bilks the stock-buying public. They point to recent tightening of their own rules and stepped- up vigilance. 1 A special panel study of security marketing practices for the Securities and Exchange Commission holds—as apparently do many government officails in other lines — that self-regulation is fine but that the SEC should be given more powers to see that the Worry of FALSE TEETH Slipping or Irritating?

The theme of the study seems to be that "no business is eager for regulation" and firm "government oversight" is needed to see that the policing is done properly. Stock exchanges do considerable policing of their member brokerage houses and several times of late have cracked down on rule infractions. The much larger oveMhe* counter market of stocks unlisted on any exchange is regulated by the National Association of Securities Dealers, set up by law to supervise activities of some 5.000 firms, involving 100,000 persons. SEC Chairman William L. Cary says his agency will discuss the issue of still stricter self-policing vs. more government controls with the stock exchanges and the over-the-counter leaders before asking Congress for any new powers—beyond those already sought and now currently before the House after passage by the Senate. What Congress might do next year, if the issue is raised then, depends on many things—including the course of stock prices, any fresh scandals, the general trend of conservatism vs. liberalism.

Scientist Invents Botteryless Hearing Aid Mr. Endel Are, formerly with the National Space Administration, has perfected a hearing aid that is powered by the heat of the user's body. ' The aid is so small it fits entirely in the ear and will last a lifetime. Body heat generates enough power to give hearing to those with a severe loss. There are no batteries to buy. The aid is personally fitted for the individual and, because the circuit is sealed in solid plastic, it cannot corrode and will give clear, noiseless hearing.
