MARKET EXTENDS RECOVERY MOVE MARKET EXTENDS NEW YORK, Sept. 16-Tho stock market today concluded a somewhat erratic week with a mild extension of Friday s re covery. Reconversion served as the prin cipal boardroom topic throughout the six-day stretch as the Alliea swept into Germany and the col lapse of the Nazis was en visaged. There seemed to be lesa apprehension over the return to peacetime operations, however, aa the week ended and hopes revived that heavy demand for civilian goods would stimulate virtually all lines when the final gun was fired in Europe. Political optimism broadened to some extent as an argument for the bulls but meager volumes in virtually all sessions attested to the prevalence of caution both aa regards the forthcoming election and transition programs for indus try. Aircrafts experienced a bulge Friday on the theory heavy orders for commercial liners would cush ion cancellation of government contracts. Steels were unperturbed by reports the war labor board panels might upset the “little steel” wage formula. The list was up Monday and Tuesday but cracked Wednesday and Thursday on word from Lon* don that allied chieftains nad fix ed Oct. 31 as the “outside” date for the collapse of the Hitlerites. Sluggish rally got under way Fri day as the market’s technical attracted bidding. mi. _ a_.• XUC XXlJiaVVJOVVU A VU uvvv» average was up .1 of a point at 53.5 and for the week showed a net advance of .3. Sales never reached a million aggregate in any session and today’s total of 275,240 shares was one of the low marks for the year. It compared with 275.690 last Saturday. Today’s advancers included Douglas Aircraft, up a point at another 1944 peak; U. S. Stell, Boeing, Sperry, General Motors, Chrysler, Willys-Overland, Gra ham — Paige, Texas Co., South ern Pacific, Sears Roebuck and American Telephone. Cudahy Packing was up 5-8 at the last in the wake of a 30-cent dividend on the common, first since 1937. -V CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, Sept. 16—<A>>— Most grain futures markets turned strong in the last five minutes of trading today and the September deliveries of oats and barley clos ed with gains of 1 7-8 cents for the session. The late rally was started when buying orders for September wheat disclosed a shortage of of ferings. Prices that had held to within an eighth of a cent of the previous close jumped nearly a cent before the demand was satis fied. Rye was unsettled until the final minutes of the session when locSl demand developed for the Decem ber contract. Shorts were nervous and when they started to cover prices went up sharply.
