Salable limited to around Stock Market Rally Is Short New York, (/P)—The president's state of the union message touched off a mild and short-lived rally in the stock market Wednesday. Gains ranged from fractions to a little more than a point for issues affected, mostly in the steel, rail and automobile divisions. Turnover picked up a little as the president delivered his message but activity was still nothing to get excited about. Wall Street generally rated the outline of administration policy as better than expected from a business viewpoint. In demand were U. S. Steel, Republic Steel, National Steel, Chrysler, Studebaker, Montgomery Ward, J. I.
