Carrier Stocks Lead
Mild Rally Alter
Early Selloff
By Victor Eubank
Associated Press Financial Writer
NEW YORK, May 24 — Buying of ;
carrier stocks helped rally most sec- j
tions of the market today after an <
early light selloff blamed mainly on 1
bearishness over the railway strike. 1
The feeling that a break was at '
hand in the transportation and coal
crises inspired reinstatement of com
mitments in many cases. Belief that
a quick rate boost would be granted
the railroads to offset rising wages
and other costs also brought bids j
for this group. Dividends, with
scattered exceptions, still were pleas
ing marketwise. Numerous custo-!
mers, however, stood aside to await:
labor news.
Declines of fractions to more than)
2 points were pinned on steels, mo- ]
tors and rails at the start. Liquids-i
tion was timid, though, and bids:
soon steadied all divisions. Initial
setbacks were substantially reduced j
or converted into gains of as much!
near the close with virtually all the]
transports in higher ground, a num-i
ber at peaks for the year. Dealings
were relatively slack throughout ]
Transfers were in the neighborhood!
of 1,200,000 shares for the full pro
ceedings.
The Board of Governors of the j
New York Stock Exchange voted late
today to close the exchange tomor-!
row. The action was associated with)
New York City transportation diffi
culties arising from the railroad:
strike. The Curb Exchange took
similar action along with over-the-i
counter markets.

Potomac Basin States
Urged to Fix Uniform
Standards on Water
By James Birchtield
Star Staff Correspondent
NEW GERMANY, Md.. May 24.—
States through which the Potomac
River and its tributaries flow will be
asked to establish uniform standards
for water quality in the basin as
adopted here today by the Inter
state Commission on the Potomac
River Basin.
At its quarterly meeting in the
Savage River State P’orest here,
members of the commission—repre
senting Maryland, Virginia, Penn
sylvania. West Virginia, the District
and the United States Government—
adopted a classification plan for the
Potomac Basin providing for the
establishment of definite water qual
ity criteria, or minimum standards
of purity to be maintained through
out the basin.
These criteria range from pure
water suitable for drinking purposes
with the addition of chlorine and
found only at the extreme head
waters of streams feeding the Poto
mac. to water adjoining industrial
areas that will be kept in “such gen
eral sanitary condition so as to pre
vent it becoming a nuisance." Other
classifications include areas w'here
streams will be maintained at a
puritv beneficial to bathing, fish
life and recreation.” and to areas
where the water will be suitable for
domestic water supplies and for in
dustrial purposes.
Class D Area Here.
In the Washington area, for ex
ample. the water has been placed in
class D, or that to be maintained
pure enough to prevent it becoming
a nuisance. This classification also
will apply to the Cumberland, Front
Royal and other industrial areas.
Much of the Potomac River, from
Cumberland to the Chesapeake Bay
falls in class C, or that area in
which the water will be maintained
suitable for domestic and commer
cial use.
By. far the largest area, however
falls in class B. where the water h
to be maintained pure enough foi
bathing and recreation and for tht
development of fish life. This area
includes the upper reaches of tht
Potomac and such tributaries as th<
Shenandoah and the Cacapon Riv
ers.
Basic Standards Seen.
In adopting the criteria, it wa;
pointed out that a tentative classifi
cation plan was accepted by th<
;commission last summer and wa:
sent to the various members fo:
further comment. The presen
criteria, it was said, contain revi
sions suggested by the variou.
States.
Since the States involved havi
generally approved the criteria, i
was said, their adoption by the com
mission should be tantamount ti
enactment by the States.
In presenting the criteria, thi
commission's technical committei
pointed out that the classificatioi
should not be rigid, but may becomi
basic standards for water purity li
the basin from which each Stati
may make more detailed standard;
to apply to certain areas and to b(
used in the control and abatemen
of pollution in that State.
rrincipies followed.
In establishing the criteria, the
. committee said, the following prin
ciples were followed:
Only such standards as can bi
used as a guide of water qualit;
when all conditions affecting wate:
purity are considered should be
established, and the standards fixee
, should be only for minimum require
! ments.
I The standards should be reason
■ able in the light of present - da;
knowledge, and should be such tha
they can be met within the limit:
of present-day treatment practice.'
They should be easily determined
and it should be kept in mind tha
no one standard can be devised h
cover water quality within the entiri
basin.
In the use of the water qualit;
! criteria, the committee said, it
! should be kept in mind that the;
provide only a guide in connectior
with any sanitary surveys of th<
area.
In the enforcement of pollutior
control, the committee said, it may
be easier for each State health de
partment to set up standards foi
j waste discharges which will provide
, a water quality equal to that estab
; lished by the commission. These
criteria, it was added, should be
easily reached within the next few
years.
Sewage Agreement Reached.
At the commission's opening ses
jsion yesterday Harold A. Kemp. Dis
l trict sanitary engineer, announced
that an agreement, under negotia
tion since last August, has been
reached whereby sewage from near
by Prince Georges and Montgomery
: Counties will be pumped into the
District lines to be treated at the
Blue Plains treatment plant.
Mr. Kemp said the new arrange
ment will relieve the present pol
luted condition in the Anaeostis
River. He said at present 20 pei
cent of the nearby sewage receivef
no treatment before being dumpec
into the Anacostia. while the re
maining 80 per cent is only partialh
treated.
Under the new plans. Mr. Kemf
said, all of the sewage from the
two Maryland counties will be di
rected into the District system anc
will be treated before final disposi
tion in the Potomac River.

Egyptian Withdrawal
Assailed by Churchill
By the Associated Press
LONDON, May 24. — Winston
Churchill told the House of Com
mons today he feared the British
plan to withdraw from Egypt would
seriously prejudice “the hope of
gaining the aid of America in the
Palestine question."
Mr. Churchill said if the govern
'ment continued to pursue its pres
ent course “it would ruin our in
terests in the Middle East, destroy
our communications in the Indian
and Pacific oceans and sever the
lifeline of the British Empire."
Efforts to find other bases to sub
stitute for Egypt, he declared, would
bring complaints of imperialism and
■Russia would renew and reinforce
her demands for a base or bases in
the Eastern Mediterranean.”
The former prime minister said
depending on the use of Palestine
“as a jumping off ground for re
occupation of the Suez Canal Zone
in an emergency would leave our
selves without American aid and
would leave us with the most profit
less task that can be imagined.”
‘‘It is impossible to keep the canal
! open unless British personnel are
permanently stationed in the canal
zone,” he continued.
“The government has no right to
claim the approval of the chiefs
of staff for any policy without in
forming the house of the precise
questions from which that advice ■
was obtained.”
He declared that bases either in
Palestine or Cvrenaica or both
would not be effective for protec
tion of the canal in an emergency.
