NEW YORK. March 6.—United
States Governments took a long
lead over other groups in the bond
market today by scoring new gains
of 1-32 to 10-32 of a point.
A number of Treasuries pushed
ahead to record highs, but volume
generally was moderate. A steady
rise for several days was attributed
by dealers to institutional buying
released when the Treasury dis
closed the terms of the March
financing.
Corporate low-yield bonds im
proved with the Governments, but
trading favorites in this division
' were mixed, reflecting profit selling
in many which had scored gains last
week. A few rails rose sharply, in- j
eluding Cleveland Union Terminal i
5s and 51 is, Michigan Central 3‘2 s,
Marquette 5s and M.-K.-T. 5s of ’62.
Despite the irregularity trading
eentiment continued favorable on
the easy money situation and
brighter feeling on business pros
pects.
Excepting Panama 5s of 63 “A,” ,
which climbed about 3, foreign loans
held to a narrow range, with frac
tional gains in Milan 6'2S and
Poland 8s.

Description of Foreign
Trade Balance Hit
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, March 6.—A pro
posal to eliminate the terms ‘ favor
able" and “unfavorable" in describ
ing foreign trade balances from
Government reports was urged to
day by F. W. Nichol. vice president
and general manager of the Inter
national Business Machines Corp.
He recommended as substitutes
the terms “export balance ’ and
“import balance" and announced
he would present a report calling
■* for revision in the terminology of
the United States Department of
Commerce.
Use of “favorable" and “unfavor
able” in application to foreign
trade, he contended, has become
“increasingly misleading" since the
United States became a credit na
tion and faced a difficult problem
of balancing its international ac- 1
counts growing out of exchange of
goods and services.
“Today we are a creditor Nation,” ,
Nichol said, “receiving annually as
much as $608,000,000 in interest and
dividends on investments abroad
while paying but $278,000,000 on for
eign investments in the United
States.” i
This country, he argued, has not i
been buying sufficient raw mate- j
rials abroad to balance other items j
in the scale of international settle- !
ments with the result large gold :
shipments have been necessary to |
equalize the accounts. The gold i
inflow in turn. Nichol held, has
hurt trade by piling up an excessive
amount of the metal in this country,
which now holds about 60 per cent
of the world's recorded supply of
monetary gold.

Sugar Firms Report
Further Decrease
In 1938 Profits
13 Earn $24,184,000
Against $28,527,000
In Preceding Year
Preclal Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, March 6.—Sugar
company earnings in 1938 were
again lower, according to Winthrop
W. Case in the current issue of The
Annalist. Net income of 13 lead
ing companies totaled $24,184,000 in
1937, as compared with $28,527,000
in the record year 1936.
‘‘Earnings for 1938 of six Cuban
and Puerto Rican refiners so far re
ported show a decrease of 45.5 per
cent from 1937 levels. If the do
mestic beet factories and refiners
should show a comparable decrease,
which of course by no means fol
lows, net income of the 13 com
panies for 1938 would not total
much over $13,000,000,” declares Mr.
Case.
“Our sugar industry is unique for
its direct and utter dependence on
the policies pursued by our Gov
ernment. Any consideration of the
outlook for particular companies
therefore involves to a large extent
some estimate as to what those poli
cies are or are likely in the future
to be.
Margin Still Low.
“Because both the process and the
product are highly standardized,
company earnings are directly de
pendent on the producers’ margin.
The so-called refiner's margin is
estimated at 0 644 cents a pound in
1937 which, although higher than in
the two previous years, is neverthe
less considerably smaller than the
average of 0.699 during 1925-33, and
of course much below the peafc
years before the depression, when
i it ran as high as 0 820.
“The beet sugar industry in gen
eral has occupied the most favored
position in the industry. Enjoying
tariff protection, a mid-continent
market shielded by freight charges
from the coastal cane competition,
and raw material costs that are de
termined by the price of the refined
product through sliding-scale con
tracts with the beet growers, its
. earnings have consistently averaged
above those of the rest of the in
dustry, except the Puerto Rican re
finers.
“Earnings, nevertheless, declined
sharply in 1937 and a further de
crease apparently took place last
year. Beet factory inventories are
reported large and, with the 1939
crop also expected to be large, earn
ings are likely to continue to suffer.
“The domestic refiners’ earnings
failed to show as large a propor
tionate decrease in 1937 as the beet
factories, but their position con
tinues somewhat unfavorable, what
with low-cost competition from off
shore refiners, the possibility of a
reduction in the Cuban duty, and
the declining trend of prices'.
I “The Puerto Rican refiners, bene
fited by inclusion within the United
States customs boundaries and by
low production and raw material
costs, have shown a higher per
centage of earnings to total assets
than even the domestic beet fac
; tories. The earnings of three lead
ing companies nevertheless de
i creased sharply in 1938, declining to
