Generally, they are among the more than Army re- servists ordered to duty specifical- ly to fill up ranks of under- strength Reserve and National Guard units mustered into active service last fall.

Candy Chokes Child, Holmes Takes Action A teacher at Hayes Grade School apparently saved the life of a nine-year-old student Tues- day morning by giving him artifi- cial respiration while the lad was choking.

A fire deparement resusciator unit (Continued on Page Two) Crisis For Education, President Calls For Billion Program City Council Authorizes Charter Vote, Changes Zoning At Meeting SEC Takes New Look At 'Market' By FRANK CORMIER WASHINGTON gov- ernment is investigating Ihe pos- sible manipulation of stock mar- ket prices through publicity cam- paigns financed by publicly owned corporations. This is one of two new areas being studied by the Securities and Exchange Commission in its extensive inquiry into the securi- ties industry. It was learned today that SEC staff members also have been in- terviewing industry leaders in New York about the operations of money lenders who finance stock transactions. This was believed to be the prelude to a more inten- sive study of lenders who are ex- empt from the stock market credit restrictions imposed by the Federal Reserve Board. The manipulation through pub- licity phase of the inquiry is fo- cusing on the activities of a small group of financial public relations firms, most of them located ,n New York. The SEC wants to find out whether any of these firms, in their effort to promote the cor- porations that hire them, have circulated press releases aimed at affecting stock prices. From what is known of the in- vestigation, it seems apparent that the SEC is checking news- paper usage of certain releases and subsequent changes in stock prices. An area of special concern is the possibility that publicity cam- paigns have helped generate pub- lic enthusiasm for certain recent "hot issues" new stock issues which have shown sharp price ad- vances immediately or soon after reaching the market. The SEC never has tried to use its onti-fraud powers against pub- lic relations organizations. How- ever officials said the powers could be used if a firm conspired to jiggle market prices by dis- tributing inaccurate or misleading press releases. Unregulated money lenders also have been a source of concern to the SEC for some time.
