Stock Prices Strive
To Retain Upswing,
But Many Stall
By VICTOR EUBANK,
Associated Press Financial Write'.
NEW YORK. May 2—The stock
market today tried to keep Mon
day’s selective rally going, but, while
scattered issues made the grade,
many leaders were stalled by light
profit selling.
Prices were at their best and ac
tivity most pronounced in the fore
noon. Volume then slackened and
trends began to waver. The result
w’as considerable irregularity near
the close. Transfers for the full
proceedings were around 600,000
shares.
Investors seemed a bit more con
fident, in the light of pleasing divi
dends and assorted favorable earn
ings forecasts. There also was less
apprehension over possible invasion
repercussions on the list which, it
was felt, was now in pretty good
shape to meet eventualities. There
was some hesitancy, however, by
those still inclined to maintain a
cash position pending the European
push. Others held aloof to await
returns from the Florida and Ala
bama primaries.
Schenley backed water when it
was disclosed this company had
been named, along with numerous
others, in a Federal indictment
charging ceiling violations. Ahead
most of the time were Park & Til
ford, Standard Oil fN. J.), Marine
Midland, Sears-Roebuck and Johns
Manville. Downward drifters at one
time or another were United States
Steel, Bethlehem, Santa Fe, South
ern Pacific, Texas Co., Chrysler,
General Motors, Montgomery Ward,
Westinghouse and Dow Chemical.
Rails were forced to contend with
word the roads had agreed to an
other six-month suspension of 1942
rate boosts.

Federal Reserve Board
Urges Curb on Bank
Holding Companies
Br (he Atsocia(e£ Press.
Immediate legislation to prevent
further expansion of bank holding
companies or creation of new ones
was recommended today by the Fed
eral Reserve Board.
In its annual report to Congress,
the board declared that bank hold
ing companies should be limited to
the banking business and that their
activities should be regulated like
those of the banks they control.
The board said that the bank
holding company device bad been
used to gather under one manage
ment many different kinds cf enter
prises "wholly unrelated to the
banking business."
This, it said, is contrary to accept
ed rules of law which confine the
business of banks to banking and
prohibit them from other businesses
such as owning and operating in
dustrial and manufacturing con
cerns. Such a company should be
required, the board asserted, to be
come either a bank holding com
pany or an investment company.
The device of the holding com
pany has been used in some cases,
the board said, to escape supervision
of agencies that regulate banks since
a holding company can do certain
things forbidden t'o a bank.
The resources of large bank hold
ing companies sometimes have been
used, the board added, to acquire
independent banks “by measures
which leave the local management
and minority share holders little
with which to defend themselves
except thir owm strenuous pretests.”
The board reiterated several times
that it was talking about "excep
tional cases” and that holding com
pany managements on the whole
have been co-operative.
