Stock Market Settles Lower In Trading NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market settled lower this afternoon after a feeble attempt to rally won no support in the morning. Trading was lighter than last week. Reversing a similar advantage in favor of gainers, the balance of plus and minus signs on the New York Stock Exchange shifted to the losing column by about 100. The Dow Jones industrial average was off about 2 points in late dealings. Commercial Credit, off about I 1 ,-., was the most active stock by a wide margin. Withdrawal by Lowe's Theatres cleared the way for Control Data to acquire Commercial Credit. Control Data, also among the volume leaders, was down about 3. Among other active stocks, Fairchild Camera lost 4, Hooker Chemical and Raytheon more than 2 each, Occidental Petroleum and Sperry Rand more than a point apiece. Sunasco advanced more than a point in brisk trading. Montgomery Ward and Eastern Air Lines also rose a point each. IBM . dropped 4, Polaroid about 3, Homestake, American Smelting, International Telephone, Ford and Chrysler more than a point each. All the top four steelmakers took fractional losses. Goodrich, down 2, led a decline by other rubber stocks, most of which took fractional losses. Prices were mixed on the American Stock Exchange as the pace of trading slackened below Friday's. 1 p.m. Quotations COURTESY OF EDWARD D. JONES & CO. COS STATE BANK BLpG.

Peking Observes Communist Party Anniversary TOKYO (AP) — Peking quietly observed the 47th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist .party today amid signs that Chairman Mao Tse- tung's cultural revolution purge of his opponents has passed its peak, the Peking correspondent of Kyodo News Service reported.

Rotberg, an SEC attorney, asked Bishop why il would cost about two and a hall limes as much in fees to buy 10( shares of $80 stock comparec with 100 shares of a $10 stock. In response, Bishop said tha in setting up its minimum rate schedule the exchange had triec to set a balance. The minimum rate schedule is under investiga tion at the hearing. The SEC, which has held pub lie hearings only once or twic over the last 20 years, also wil check into the practice of f splitting among major brokei age houses. Fee Splitting Dropped Just last week, in an apparen attempt to strengthen their planned defense of minimum commissions, the New York and American exchanges voted to eliminate fee splitting and grant a discount on fees for large transactions. The SEC said the initial phase of its hearings will run through July and will be devoted to gathering facts on minimum rates. In August, the SEC will turn s attention to economic and le- al aspects. Included in the first phase will e an examination into who ays the fees and commissions, ow they are computed and how ley are distributed and shared.

The blunt-spoken Gunter, who served nearly four years in the cabinet as labor minister and recently at the power ministry, submitted his resignation Sunday night with a terse note that said: Ross, 634 E. Stephenson St., $81.80. The Western Newell Employes Federal Credit Union was awarded a judgment of $244.37 against Marthan Johnson, 203 N. Henderson Ave. A judgment of $119.89 was awarded to Schofield Sinclair Service against Robert McGee, 636 E. Iroquois St., Drs. G. E. Guenzler and William Friscli were awarded a judgment of $42.80 against Morris and Phyllis Newcomer, no address given. Dr. Francis Tucker was "I have the feeling that the best service I can render to the folk whence I came is that I should obtain the freedom of the back benches and of the platforms in the country." Gunter had been associated with a cabinet faction which has chafed under Wilson's leadership. One of the most notable of that group, former Foreign Minister George Brown, resigned in March, charging that Wilson had assumed too much personal control over government, operations. The Times of London said Gunter's resignation reflected "disillusionment ... in important sections of the labor movement." Britain's trade unions have become increasingly restive in recent months, particularly because of the government's hold- down on wages.

(AP) — Communist China has refused to accept a message from Secretary-General U Thant inviting Peking to attend conference in Geneva, a U.N. . spokesman disclosed today. As an observer Communist China would have enjoyed the same privileges at the Geneva meeting as the other world nuclear powers—the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain and France. This would include the right to take part in the pro- ccedings, but not the right to vote. As U.N. members the Big Four powers automatically received invitations. In his message to Chinese Foreign Minister Chou En-ali, the secretary general said he would be grateful "if your government could inform me at an early date of its intention with regard to participation in the conference." The U.N. spokesman said : there was no direct reply from Chou, but only the service message from the Peking Telegraph Office telling of the refusal to accept the communication. But the spokesman added that ' Thant considers the action an official rejection of the invitation. Police Trap 22-Year-Old Fugitive MERIDIAN, Miss.
