that various iwols had collapsed
served to complete tho demoraliza

At uoon there wero fractional re

Tho market opened weak, tho bears
immediately starting to pound thu
list, and for an hour demoralization
continued. National Bisouit dropped
11 points to 114; Bethlehem Steel
lost four; and Lehigh Valley 2 a-l.
Union Pacific, Heading and United
States Steel wero supported but when
tho bunks refused to lend, many of
tho specialties slumped.
After tho opening liquidation was
well under way. t,uporting orders
wero encountered and there was good
rally. Union Paeifio and Steel no

to fractious. Later another break
occurred, uffecting Union 1'ncifio,
