Three Utility Concerns
Reveal Lower Nets
In Four Months
Transit Income, However,
Is Far Above Results
In 1941 Period
By EDWARD C. STONE.
Three of Washington's four big
utility corporations registered slight
ly lower net earnings in the first four
months of this year than in the
like 1941 period, according to reports
just filed with the Public Utilities
Commission. While operating rev
enues were higher, very' heavy re
serves for taxes and increases in
other expenses cut down the final
returns.
The Capital Transit Co. had a net
Income in the four months of
$454,741, a gain of $83,885.23 over last
year, or 22 per cent. An increase of
23.938.285 In revenue passengers over
1941, a 41 per cent gain, was a vital
factor in the fine showing.
The Potomac Electric Power Co.
reported a net income of $1,470,
081.66, off $30,429.94 from the same
1941 period and a drop of 2.03 per
cent. The report revealed operating
revenues up 12 per cent and ex
penses up 18 per cent. Tax reserves
were 42 per cent higher.
Tire Chesapeake & Potomac Tele
phone Co. showed net earnings of
$465,288 in the four months, a de
crease of $142,383. Higher operating
expenses, including taxes, account
for the drop, although interest de
ductions were also larger than a year
tgo.
The Washington Gas Light Co. re
corded a decrease in net income of
$169,226 In the four months, com
pared with last year, net standing
at $812,779. Curtailment of mer
chandising activities because of the
war and higher expenses caused the
modest letdown.
May Express Shipments OfT.
Express shipments in and out of
Washington in May were 2 7 per
cent lower than in the same month
last year, the first decrease in manv
months. Supt. W. O. R. Hannan of
the Railway Express Agency re
ported today. May shipments num
bered 198.495, against 203,913 in
May, 1941, a decrease of 5.419.
It was at this time last year that
business took a tremendous spurt in
Washington and set a terrific pace
In express activity. This year, with
a holiday on Saturday and the last
day of the month coming on Sunday,
a good deal of business had to be
carried over to June, officials ex
plained.
Shipments in the first five months
of 1942 are well ahead of 1941. Supt.
Hannon said. This year 993.835
packages were handled against 934.
159 in the like period a year ago. an
increase of 59.676 shipments. The
volume in March was the best so far
in 1942; the monthly comparisons
being as follows:

Market Interest Revives.
Washington offices of New York
Stock Exchange firms had more
visitors today than in several weeks.
Last night’s runup at the close
revived market interest. Boardroom
observers saw the motors and sev
eral other issues open strong The
“creeping forward movement’’ of the
last few sessions saw real moves in
come stocks.
Brokers here said they thought
peace talk was the leading factor
In the sudden market move. The
tax situation remains one of the
biggest governing forces and is likely
to stay so until about the middle of
August. Brokers believe adverse
dividend news has already been
largely discounted.
At present very little talk is heard
In the boardrooms about inflation.
Several months ago it was one of
the chief topics of conversation.

Committee Formed
To Offer Plans for
Inventory Control
First Meeting of Group
Set Next Tuesday
In New York
By the Associated Press.
I NEW YORK, June 4.—A commit
tee composed of representatives of
| nearly 20 national retail trade or
! ganizations has been set up to com
| pile retailers' views on proposed
War Production Board inventory
control and submit recommenda
tions and comments to the Govern
ment agency, it was announced
today.
Formation of the committee was
the outgrowth of a joint meeting
of the American Retail Federation
and the National Retail Dry Goods
Association. The first meeting of
the committee will be in New York
next Tuesday.
Dr. David R. Craig, president of
the federation, said the need for
inventory control had not been
definitely established and that a
representative from the WPB would j
be invited to attend the first meet-'
ing of the committee to explain the
Government's case,
David R. Craig, president of the
federation, said last night that rep
resentative retailers had suggested
an eight-point formula for inven
i tory control.
More than 300 executives and
merchant members of 17 national
retail trade associations met to dis
cuss the need for inventory control
; after indications that the War Pro
! duction Board was considering an
order which would restrict inven
| tories.
A survey by the federation. Mr.
Craig said, showed that retailers felt
the following eight principles should
form the basis for a formula to be
presented to the WPB:
1. The effective date of any pro
gram should not be earlier than
January 1, 1943.
2. Differentiation between goods
with different rates of turnover.
3. Adequate allowance for in
creased sales in war production
areas.
4. Adequate allowance for com
panies which have expanded their
capacity during the past year or so.
| 5. Additional allowance for those
j distant from markets.
| 6. Provision for special seasonal
\ problems of inventory control.
7. Simple administrative require
ments.
8. No inventory control on goods
which are not scarce.
Mr. Craig cited statistics of the
Federal Reserve Board showing that
department store sales increased
26.9 per cent in March. 1942, and
only 8.5 per cent in April, but that
stocks as of March this year in
creased 48 per cent and 59.2 per
cent in April over comparable
periods in 1941.
Mr. Craig said that while May
figures were not yet made public, it
was known that the inventory ac
cumulations had stopped. He satel
the general maximum price regula
tion "had taken the heart and the
motive out of retail accumulation.”
The accumulations of inventories
to their present level, and even be
yond, would be justified by sound
business practice in a sellers’ mar
ket such as we have had for the past
six months,” he added.

Industrials Climb
Fractions to $2 on
Stock Market
Motor and Specialty
Issues Account for
Most of Strength
By VICTOR EUBANK,
Associated Pres* Financial Writer.
NEW YORK, June 4 —The stock
market today took the Japanese
bombing of Dutch Harbor in stride
and leading industrials were bid up
fractions to around 2 points.
While yesterday’s last-minute
runup brought in occasional profit
selling, rising inclinations at the
start restricted offerings. Motors
and specialties accounted for the
principal strength and a number of
favorities touched best levels for
the year. Steels, rails, coppers, oils
and aircrafts were relatively nar
row. Gains were reduced in most
categories before the close.
Dealings, fast in the first hour,
slackened after mid-day but trans
fers approximating 500.000 shares
were the largest since May 21.
The feeling in Wall Street was
that European war developments,
including pajsistent aerial blasts
at Germany, far overshadowed the
latest Alaskan thrust. A little buy
ing timidity was blamed on the
still cloudy battle pictures in China,
Russia and Libya.
Dupont pushed up in the face of
the indictment of this company,
together with several other explos
ives manufacturers, on charges of
violating anti-trust laws.
Stocks in the neur high class in
cluded General Motors. Chrysler,
Goodyear, United States Rubber,
Montgomery Ward, American Can,
Pepsi-Cola and Pan-American Air
ways.
Ahead the greater part of the day
were American Telephone. Westing
house, AmericanTobacco “B." Sears
Roebuck. Dow Chemical, Union Car
bide. Philip Morris, Woolworth, J. C.
Penney. Public Service of New Jersey
and Consolidated Edison.
United Aircraft slipped to a new
bottom for 1942 before getting sup
port. Lower at intervals were New
York Central, Great Northern. Ana
conda. Goodrich, Douglas Aircraft
and Standard Oil (New Jersey).
Bonds Up Fractions.
Fractional gains were well distrib
uted through the bond market, with
rails more active and making a bet
ter showing than other groups.
United States Governments were
extremely quiet but maintained a
generally steady undertone on the
stock exchange and over the counter.

Shares Boosted
During May
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. June 4 —The May

change, it was disclosed today in the

May 29 was $32,913,725,225, an av

$21.41 on April 30.
The upturn in May followed sev
eral months of steady decline is
security values.
Chicago Grain
By the Associated Pres*.
CHICAGO, June 4 —A strong rally
which added as much as 2 cents a
bushel in some cases to grain fu
tures prices occurred just before the
close today.
Buying that came from dealers
who had sold short previously, with
some orders also attributed to
processors and consuming interests,
stimulated the advance.
Bullish trade factors included
Secretary of Commerce Jones’ state
ment that duty-free entry of war
materials would not affect domestic
prices for those commodities and a
Bureau of Agricultural Economics
report that the Federal loan pro
gram would support wheat prices
despite the record supply in sight.
Loan prices are 10 to 20 cents above
wheat values, traders estimated.

Wholesale Price Index
Highest in 15 Years
By the Associated Preea.
The Labor Department Whole
sale Price Index advanced 0.1 per
cent in the last week of May to 98 8
per cent of the 1926 average, the
highest point in more than 15 years.
Continued advances in prices for
agricultural products, particularly
livestock, accounted for the advance.
In the past 12 months the index has
risen 16 per cent.
Except for an advance of more
than 1 per cent for farm products,
there was little change in commodity
prices in primary markets. The
advance in prices for livestock
brought the farm products group
index to the highest point since Sep
tember, 1929.
