after one of the most exciting weeks in its history Although closed to trading as usual the New York Stock Ex change instructed brokers to have members of their staffs on its floor The job is to handle the moun tainous paper work that piled up during the heavy trading that ac companied the biggest plunge and the biggest rally since the crash year of 1929 Employes will be working over time in brokers offices too in an effort to catch up The market although stalled Friday in a recovery drive came outof the turbulent week about where it started Profittakers who bought Mon day and Tuesday morning during the slump started selling Friday and turned a whopping rally into a moderate decline The fact that a weekend was ahead made in vestors cautious As a result the market will enter next week at an important crossroads Some WaU Street experts felt tnatjhe market wasin need of a rest after its strenuous exer tions t Fridays trading was a mild affair compared with the rousing sessions of Monday Tuesday and Thursday The market was closed Wednesday for Memorial Day Trading dropped to 576 million shares which normally wouldbe considered very heavy but1 it was light against the 1071 million Thursday 1475 million Tuesday and 935 million Monday The averages that are used to measure the markets movements wiped out their early week losses on the rally and wound up aboul where they stood at the close ol the previous week The Associated Press average of 60 stocks dipped 10 to 22540 Friday a shade ahead of the 22460 at which it had stood a week earlier The Dow Jones averageof 30 industrials declined 231 to 61105 a little below its 61188 a week ago Few issues in primary on Monday but theyre important to lowans the primary election Some have gone as far as blaming the can didates themselves calling them lack luster But perhaps the best hypothesis for his apathy is the lack of contests because of the expense of running for a state office A candidate must have an organization in order to Much has been made out of the fact r county officers now serve fouryear terms with only half of them being elected every two years which cuts down contests with local interest The oftre peated phrase has been a close sheriffs race will bring out the vote Lately however some well informed politicians have chal lenged that statement saying the sheriffs races have been over rated VDunng the last three decades even through the Roosevelt ad rriinistt aliens Republicans have controlled approximately 80 per cent of the Iowa courthouses As a result opposition in the Repub lican primaries has been almost nonexistent So even reverting back to the two year terms for all county officers there is a question this would result in a sizeable vote increase inthe primary Although there is talk of general apathy it appears to be confined to state races For there is ample evidence that m o r ea n dmore lowans are taking an increasing Moslems Secret Army confer Terrorism halted in truce move Hope to retain the Europeans ALGIERS French sources reported Saturday that the terrorist European Secret Army Organization and the Mos lem Front of National Liberation definitely
