Stock Market Losses Pile Up New York, (#")—Losses piled up in the stock market slowly but steadily Tuesday. A wide variety of key issues were marked down fractions to more than 2 points. Only a handful were able to resist the trend. Trading volume expanded on the way down. Turnover was at the rate of around 1,600,000 shares, which would be the highest since more than 2,000,000 shares changed hands on Nov. 10. Most brokers saw nothing special in the news to account for the unexpected decline. Some, though, claimed that recent unfavorable business reports had restricted buying as well as a desire to maintain liquidity until the president addresses congress next month.

Lawmakers Hear Possible Pacts Aired Washington, (fp) — Members of congress may get their first look this week behind the curtain veiling diplomatic talks about a possible North Atlantic security pact. Lawmakers said it is their understanding that these informal talks—carried on by representatives of this and 6 other nations— have about reached the point where diplomats can get down to the brass tacks of tackling a defense agreement. Aimed at Russia Everyone knows this agreement would be aimed at stopping any possible Russian aggression. The administration promised congress earlier in the year to take the lawmakers into its confidence before anything final is done about terms of agreement. In this connection, state department officials may call in within a few days such senators as Connally (D.-Tex.) and Vandenberg (R.-Mich.), and such representatives as Bloom (D.-N. Y.) and Eaton (R.-N.J.). They are their parties' leaders in senate, and house committees on foreign matters. To Unfold in Talks Larger groups will get a look at the pattern as it unfolds in discussions with representatives of Canada, Britain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Congressional circles are speculating that any agreement finally reached will be in the form of a regional pact under the United Nations. This might follow the line of the inter-American agreement for joint consultation in case of an attack on any of the signatory nations. Decisions Singly In this case, «ach country which signed would decide on ijs own what to do about the attack.

The general feeling among lawmakers seems to be that it might not be wise to commit this nation to an iron-clad military alliance that could carry it into war automatically if any signatory power were attacked. Congress has always insisted on reserving to itself the right to declare war. There seems little doubt, however, that congress would agree to joint military planning by the nations who sign up. The natural followup on this would be lor this country to furnish arms to its friends in western Europe. Most members of congress seem willing at this time to go to such a length to make the proposed pact work. Plymouth — Herbert W.
