NEW YORK, Dec. 27.—With steel,,
aircrafts and other recently strong
armament stocks developing weakness,
industrial leaders tumbled 1 to more
than 5 points in today's market.
Year-end tax selling played its part
in the downfall and brokers said
speculative forces were depressed bv
the address of Assistant Attorney
General Robert H Jackson. in
which "big business" and monopoly
"profiteering" were blamed for the
economic slump.
Warnings from Washington authori
ties that falling Government revenues
due to the recession threatened bai
anting of the budget tended to chill .
t hopes in the financial district for tax
revision in the near future.
Many traders extended their Christ
mas holidays on the belief little mar
ket recovery was likely pending re
convening of Congress next mon^h
and the delivery of the President'*
message.
j Despite opinions stee] production is
seeing its worst, this week's mill oper
I atioas were officially estimated off 4 3
points at 19 2 per cent of capacity,
a new low since September *, 1934,
It was the fifteenth consecuti'e
weeks decline.
Volume was small most of the dav,
but picked up in the final hour.
Transfers were around 1,303,000
shares.
Gold mining stocks were among the
exceptions to the slide. Dome marie

New 1937 lows were plentiful.
Among these were Chrysler and Gen

the losing end were United States
