40 Integration Cases
Dismissed by S. E. C.
By the Associated Press.
The Securities Commission dis
missed integration proceedings
40 companies named in its
order against the United
Gas Improvement Co.
The action affected principally
companies operating in Indiana and
affiliated with the Midland United
Co. The commission said it ap
peared unlikely that it would find
it necessary to direct those com
panies to take any action under
the section of the Holding Company
Act which calls for physical integra
tion and corporate simplification of
utility holding company systems.
All of the 90 companies named
in the original order had joined
in the U. G. I. reply to the show
cause order of the S. E. C. Certain
contentions in that reply were
argued before the commission yes
terday and taken under advisement.

By VICTOR EUBANK,
Associated Press Financial Writer.
NEW YORK, April 26.—Stocks
turned downward in today's market
as traders lightened commitments
to be on the safe side over the ap
proaching week end.
Pessimism regarding the trend of
warfare in Norway helped inspire
selling here and there, brokers said,
and tended to offset the bullish
•fleet of first quarter steel figures
and highly favorable earnings
statements from individual com
panies.
The list got off to a sketchy start.
Ptices later rallied, but offerings be
came more urgent in the final hour.
Closing declines ran to around 2
points or so for leaders. Steels and
aircrafts were in front of the re
treat.
Dealings, lively in the forenoon,
slackened on the attempted recov
ery. Transfers for the full session
w'ere around 900,000 shares.
Principal losers were U. S. Steel,
Bethlehem, Chrysler, Douglas Air
craft, Boeing, Glenn Martin, Ana
conda, Great Northern, Southern
Railway, U. S. Rubber, Montgomery
Ward, Safeway Stores and Air Re
duction,
Resistant issues, up at one time,
were International Papier preferred.
Savage Arms, Rayonier, Ex-Cell-O
Corp. and Baldwin Locomotive.
Off as much as a point or more
in the curb were Bell Aircraft.
Creole Petroleum. Aluminum of

minals.
Despite large receipts at Min
neapolis. trade reports said demand
for cash grain there was the best
in months, indicating commercial
dealers were absorbing the supplies
readily. Announcement that the
