Except possibly tor the mutual fund segment, the financial com« munily found little .unexpected Thursday In the Ihlrd report on the two-year Inquiry by a special staff of the Securities and Ex- nhttngc Commission. Sharp criticism was leveled at high-pressure tactics used by some salesmen of mutual fund shares, notably part-timers said to have employed highly emotional appeals playing on "fear, pride and patriotism." The report also 1 questioned sales fee collection patterns in the sale of contractual (installment) plans, methods of routing brokerage business by sortie funds and what it deemed'potential conflict of interest situations. •The federal investigators added lo earlier recommendations for a closer SEC role on self-regulation of organized securities markets, such as the New York and American Stock Exchanges. In a letler of transmlttal to Congress, SEC Chairman William L. Gary indicated the next step will be a series of meetings with securities induslry leaders. These would seek an accord on additional controls and improvements, especially those within the powers of the SEC, the stock exchanges, mutual fund industry and the National Association of: Security Dealers, which oversees the over the counter market for unlisted stocks.

Kenneth J. Gray, D-1I1., and the Bituminous Coal Operators' Asso elation endorsed today a proposal to extend federal safety laws to small mines. "Coal mining can be made a safe industry," Gray told a House Labor subcommittee. _ "There is no logical explanation for Hie exemption in the present law." Edward G. Fox, president of the Coal Operators group, said: "When the owner or operator of a coal mine hires human beings for his operations, he should take every reasonable precaution to see that 'these employes finish each days work with life and limb intact. Whether he employes 5 or 5,000 should make no difference." Under the present law, federal mine inspectors can shut down a mine if dangerous conditions are found to exist there. However, mines employing less than 15 people are exempt from these provisions. Gray recalled the West Frankfort and Centralia mine disasters in Southern Illinois which killed about 230 persons.
