BUYING RAISES
PRICE OF BONDS
Not All Issues, However,
Share In Market’s Up
ward Trend
NEW YORK, March 23—W—'The
bond market had the benefit of good
buying in the low-priced rails today
and while the trend was not uniform
ly higher the biggest changes were
those on the upside.
Traders apparently ignored a
small decline in carloadings last
week when seasonal factors call for
an increase and looked at the broad
er and longer range outlook for the
carriers. News that the Reconstruc
tion Finance Corp., was ready to let
the Great Northern have all the
money needed to care for nearby
maturities was among favorable de
velopments.
The Gainers
Issues gaining fractions to 2 points
or more included Erie 5s at 15 7 b,
St- Paul 5s at 7, Illinois Central 4
3-4s at 42 3-4, Boston and Maine 5s
of 1967 at 50 and Missouri Pacific 5s
at 20.
Ahead in other groups were
Bethlehem Steel 3 l-2s at 109 1-2,
Montana Power 3 3-4s at 100, Rem
ington Rand 4 1-4S at 100 3-4 and
Western Union 5s at 67 1-8.
Finland 6s gave up 2 points on
light offerings but other north coun
try bonds in the foreign dollar group
were conspicuous by their absence
from the tape and when a sale was
made it was mostly at unchanged
levels. Other outlined dollar issues
likewise were quiet and without im
portant change.
U. S. governments reversed the
trend in cogue most of the week and
ended up 2-32 to 10-32 of a point but
dealings were light.
Total sales of $3,069,050, face
value, compared with $3,021,350 last
Saturday.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE
NEW YORK, March 23.-CP>—
The British pound resumed its
downward trek today following a
steady holiday interlude in the for
eign money market.
Sterling declined 1 5-8 cents but
there was little of the frantic pres
sure which has characterized some
recent irad'ng.
The Capadian dollar followed
sterling with a 1-8 cent loss, put
ting the Dominion unit at 81.25 in
U. S. cents. The French franc dip
ped .00 3-4 of a cent.
Money dealers said one of the
main reasons for the current wide
swings in sterling was the "thin"
condition of the free market. Small
transactions easily influence the
price and when buyers lose interest
the1 effect on the rate is out of nor
mal proportion.
Currencies of the neutral na
tions were unchanged.

Air Line Stocks Prove Pop
ular; Average For The
Week Is Lower
By FREDERICK GARDNER
NEW YORK, March 23—(AO—Air
Transport company issues, together
with a handful of specialties, took
the recovery swing in today’s stock
market and left many leaders to
finish the wee kin a trendless area
Selective buying came in at the
start, but steels, motors, rubbers,
rails, utilities and a number of other
groups failed to respond.
No Definite Opinions
Traders returned from the Good
Friday recess without definite opin
ions either way, although the major
ity were a shade more bullish than
otherwise. The idea seemed to be
growing in Wail Street that the Eu
ropean war would be intensified as
spring gets under way and thoughts
of expanding purchases from abroad
kept many stock son an even keel.
Optimistic forecasts for passenger
carrying plane concerns helped stim
ulate stocks in this category. Hit
ting new highs for the year or long
er, with advances of fractions to 3
points, were American Airlines, Pan
American Airways, United Air Lines,
National Aviation, Transcontinent
al and Western Air and Eastern Air
Lines.
There were sporadic bursts of ac
tivity during the short session, but
slow intervals were plentiful. Never
theless, transfers amounted to 392 470
shares against 478,970 a week ago.
On the week the turnover was around
2.782.000 shares compared with 4,
120.000 in the previous ween.
Off -1 Point
The Associated Press average of
60 issues was off .1 of a point at
49.5, but, for the 5-day period, was up
.2. A month ago the composite stood
at 49.7 and a year ago at 49.1. The
closeness of the day’s proceedings
was exemplified by the fact 198 in
dividual stocks were up, 201 down
and 177 unchanged
Loft, once mere was the day’s
fastest sprinter, gelling up 1 1-S
at 33, a new peak- Gorpip regarding
dividends which this company may
receive from its Pepsi-Cola holdings
was credited for the ouying here.
Aircraft manufacturing issues held
on to fractions as financial quarters
heard the government might permit
the allies to order large numbers of
latest-type warplmes in tdie United
ed States. Ahe -d were Boeing, Lock
heed, Douglas and Glenn Martin.

GANDHI HELD KEY
TO INDIES FATE
Independence Leader Refuses
To Be Rushed Into
Open Fight
By CHARLES H. KLINE
NEW DELHI, March 23— UP) —
The political fate of India today de
pends upon Mohandas K- Gandhi
more than at any time since he 'ed
the march to the sea in protest
against British salt tax restrictions
exactly 10 years ago.
The spry, 70-year-uld ascetic en
forced his “trust me or else" lead
ership so firmly on the all-India con
gress party convention, which clos
ed its plenary session three days
ago, that he is the sole judge of the
pace of the party's wartime oressure
on Britain for independence.
Gandhai obtained another ov-r
whelming personal mandate from the
party but at the clearly implied price
that somehow, in 1940 he would
obtain sufficient British commit
ments to justify the trust of bis
people.
In and out of the congress ses
sions Gandhi went out of his way to
put his personal prestige at i stake,
saying his hitherto fruitful general
ship would succeed again if implic
itly obeyed.
In staying the hand of faetio..s
impatient for immediate action,
Gandhi got what he wanted most
more time. With time Gandhi apt
parentiy holies to mend the admitted
fissures within the congress party,
Woo and Moslems, appeal over ttie
British government's head to the
United States and the rest of the
English speaking world, watch the
course of the European war and fin
ally, if his waiting tactics bring no,
results, perfect surprise strategy of

Congress Urged To End
State Trade Barriers
WASHINGTON, March 23.—UP)—
Congress was urged today to use the
power of federal funds and federal
laws to break down the network of
trade barriers being erected by slates
and local governments throughout
the nation.
The suggestion was presented to
the monopoly committee by Dr. W.
Y. Elliott, Harvard university au
thority, in summarazing a week of
public hearings on Interstate trade
barriers.
Testifying that recent supreme
court decisions indicated that tribu
nal “washes its hands of the prob
lem" of protecting the free flow of
' interstate commerce, Dr. Elliott said
1 the justices had invited "congress
to remedy the evil.”
